The Yamaha MTX3 matrix mixer / signal processor, one of our favourite products, is designed primarily for multi-zone commercial installations and are equipped with flexible processing functions that are essential to a wide variety of applications such as retail stores, restaurants & bars or banquetting rooms.
The Yamaha MTX processors allow you to configure, program, and manage your entire sound solution via the intuitive interface of the accompanying MTX Editor software application. The series is comprised of two models with varying DSP capacities and expansion capabilities, allowing MTX processors to meet the demands of a range of commercial environments.
There are a variety of programmable features designed to maximize the performance of sound systems in commercial installations.
‘Feedback Suppressor’ can automatically locate and eliminate acoustic feedback, while ‘Auto Gain Control’ maintains a constant output level when input signals vary. For ancillary applications or environments that require public speaking, there is a ‘Priority Ducker’ function which automatically attenuates the output level a specified amount when the input signal from a separate sound source exceeds its threshold and an ‘Ambient Noise Compensator’ adjusts system gain to compensate for fluctuating background noise levels.
Combined with an onboard speaker processor for optimized speaker performance and sound quality, the MTX Series makes it easy to design and configure a complete audio system from input to output.
MTX processors also feature the newly developed YDIF digital transmission format; a unique proprietary Yamaha technology that delivers 16ch audio and word clock transmission via standard CAT5 Ethernet cable. YDIF can be used for cascading multiple MTX Series or for feeding audio signal to XMV Series power amplifiers with very simple cabling up to 30 metres.
The input/output configuration of the MTX3 includes 8 mono inputs (mic/line), 2 stereo inputs (line) and 16 digital inputs via YDIF. The output side consists of 8 line-level mono outputs and 16 digital outputs via YDIF. An SD Card Slot enables playback of MP3/WAV files stored on an SD Memory Card and the Event Scheduler function allows you to play back these files as music, announcements or chimes – or even trigger external devices with a GPI output – at scheduled times, as well as recall presets stored within the MTX.
