Both consoles provide new Stereo Hybrid Channels. Their DSP providing Ducker, Leveler, and Stereo Image functions.
For the pure analog sound both mixers feature newly designed discrete Class–A mic, the new proprietary 3-band X–pressive EQ, that reproduce unique frequency characteristics of sought–after classic EQ circuits, and the newly upgraded 1-knob compressors that feature LED indicators.

The heart of the MGP‘s compact configuration, a new and innovative approach has been taken to utilize digital technology within the MGP analog mixer by adding iPod/iPhone integration via onboard USB for direct digital playback and charging. The MGP Editor app for iPhone/iPod Touch will allow access to further detailed parameter editing of DSP functions of the Ducker, Leveler, REV–X and SPX effects.
The MGP mixers are housed in a rugged metal chassis with optimized internal construction for minimal noise, additional rack ears allow rack–mounting for fixed installations, and a multi–voltage, internal power supply that allows for worldwide use in any region using 100V–240V.
