Yamaha has long been a leader in professional live sound. The EMX powered mixer series delivers intelligent lightweight amplifier technology, exceptional effects, and several other useful features. The dual 500 watt amps will provide enough power for medium to large venues.
A total of 12 input channels - four for monaural microphone (include Phantom Power) or line input, plus four pairs that can function either as monaural microphone inputs or stereo line inputs - providing you with a versatile mix of input capabilities for a wide range of applications. Each channel has its own 3-band EQ controls.
Yamaha SPX digital effects are widely acknowledged as being among the highest quality available. The EMX212S 32-bit processor provides 16 on-board digital effects. 7 band graphic equalizers are provided for both the main and monitor channels. There's a stand-by mode feature to mute all mono channels while leaving the 2-track inputs active for background music playback while you're taking your break.
If you use this powered mixer with Yamaha speakers (which we recommend) you can take advantage of the YSP (Yamaha Speaker Processing) feature that provides optimized matching with Yamaha Concert Club series or BR series speakers. The FCL (Feedback Channel Locator) system makes it easy to locate and eliminate feedback. Each channel has an indicator that lets you know which channel the feedback is occurring on.
Mono input channels feature a state-of-the art compressor circuit that allows you to attain the optimal level of compression with a solitary knob. Achieving ideal compression for a source is typically a complex procedure, but this compressor makes it simple to obtain "musical" compression for enriched vocal sound.
The knobs, buttons, and slider controls of this unit have the feel of quality. The case does not appear to be constructed of heavy material but still feels like it would be rugged and durable.
Easy to set up and operate. SPX digital effects. Feedback channel detection. Mono channel compression. Both Speakon and 1/4" speaker outputs. Compact size and light weight. Made from high quality components.
None stand out.
The Yamaha EMX512SC is a high quality, dependable, powered mixer that is perfect for performing at medium to large sized venues. The SPX effects are of the highest quality and can really enhance the sound of live vocals. Unlike the Behringer models, this unit has both 1/4" TS and Speakon power outputs. A good speaker match for this powered mixer would be a pair of Yamaha Club V Series S115V or C115V passive PA speakers.
