The AG multi-purpose, high-resolution (192kHz/24bit) mixer and USB audio interface. The 3-channel AG03 is designed to provide a wide range of users with a simple, yet high quality platform for music streaming, webcasting/podcasting, gaming, mobile music, music production, compact mixing, desktop audio, and educational applications.
The AG's compact, intuitive design concept combines studio-quality sound with state-of-the-art Yamaha DSP and versatile connectivity, for a fast and easy, high-quality tool for users of varying musical and non-musical pursuits. The AG03 comes equipped with D-PRE mic preamps which were originally designed by Yamaha for use in high-end recording gear, and are capable of capturing the distinctive nuances of vocal and instrumental performances with the flawless fidelity of the AG's high-resolution 192kHz/24bit sound.
The AG also features an intelligent LOOPBACK function that allows users to broadcast their musical, or non-musical content live online along with backing tracks or additional audio from PC or Mac computers or an iPad.

Onboard 1-TOUCH DSP instantly adds optimally set COMP/EQ and EFFECT and, for more precise control of these settings, the multi-platform AG DSP Controller software (download) allows users to access and edit the compressor, EQ, high-pass filter, reverb, and amp simulator parameters.
The AG also comes bundled with CUBASE AI music production software (download) for Mac and Windows computers, or for iPad applications, an optional CUBASIS DAW app is available. USB bus power allows users to instantly configure a compact yet powerful studio setup with a single connection to their computer, or using a mobile battery with an iPad.

Your AG will elevate your production value considerably with background music, sound effects, and a level of sound quality that can't be matched with a conventional computer / headset configuration.
AG takes your gaming experience to a whole new level, allowing you to immerse yourself in a virtual world with the realistic sounds and superb audio that the latest game technology offers. In addition you can share your gaming skills in real time with other gamers in high-quality sound via game distribution services like TWITCH.
