The Powered Mixer for Larger Audiences!The Yamaha EMX512SC is perfect for larger venues and audiences, or if you plan to use it for outdoor sound. The EMX512SC features a pair of whopping 500-watt amplifiers to ensure that your music or message comes across with full impact.
Yamaha EMX512SC Powered Mixer at a Glance:
Integrated portable mixer with 12 inputs and plenty of power
Experienced musicians, performers, speakers, and club operators know the importance of a high-quality sound system with the right features and performance to deliver their sound. Where portability and convenience are important criteria, a system based on a high-performance Yamaha EMX512SC powered mixer is definitely the way to go. In one integrated, portable unit you have a mixer to combine and balance your microphone, instrument, and line sources, effects to refine and polish your sound, and power to drive the main speakers and even monitor speakers as well. But that's nowhere near the whole story - Yamaha EMX512SC powered mixers offers a range of features that let you mix, process, and deliver your sound with maximum quality and creative control... and, of course, that unrivaled Yamaha sound.
One-knob compression on mono channels
All four monaural mic/line channels on the EMX512SC feature built-in compressors that can help to bring vocals to the front of the mix, give your guitars extra smoothness and presence, deliver more authoritative bass sound, and generally refine your mixes in a multitude of ways. These one-knob compressors are simple to use, too. There's no need to juggle multiple attack, threshold, makeup gain, and other controls - just set the COMP control for the amount of compression you need.
Great Yamaha sound
Yamaha is a leader in the field of professional live sound for a very good reason: they deliver the sound and performance that the pros demand. The EMX512SC powered mixer is no exception. It's built at the same standards of sonic performance and rugged reliability that makes Yamaha the first choice for live sound applications from schools to stadiums around the globe.
SPX digital effects
The EMX512SC features a selection of 16 top-quality Yamaha SPX effects - including reverb, echo, chorus, flanger, phaser, and even distortion - that can add the final touch to your live presentation. Yamaha SPX digital effects are widely recognized as being some of the finest available, and the effects provided in the EMX mixers live up to that reputation.
Built-in graphic EQ
On the EMX512SC, graphic equalizers are provided for both the main and monitor channels, so you can effectively control feedback or tailor the sound to match the room and program material.
When you're done with a set simply engage the EMX512SC stand-by mode to mute all mono channels while leaving the 2-track inputs active for background music playback while you're taking your break.
Feedback Channel Locating (FCL) system
FCL System indicator LEDs at the top of each channel light if the corresponding channel goes into feedback, so you won't have to fumble around searching for the channel that needs adjustment.
12 inputs for mics, instruments, and more
The EMX512SC offers a total of 12 input channels - four for monaural microphone (with 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. If you need only microphone inputs you can use up to eight mic channels simultaneously. Or if, for example, you want to play recorded background music during breaks (using one stereo channel), and you have a keyboard player with a stereo-output keyboard (that's one more stereo channel), you still have six mic/line inputs. If you use all of the EMX512SC's four stereo pairs to handle stereo line sources you have four channels available for mono mic or line input. The EMX512SC is a very versatile system that can adapt to your needs!
High power for main and monitor speakers
Yamaha's newest powered mixers certainly don't skimp on power. With a solid 500 watts per channel, the EMX512C will suit any application and venue. The EMX512SC also features a power mode switch that lets you use the two power channels as a stereo amplifier, or you can use one of the channels for the main speaker(s) and the other to drive monitors with a separate monitor mix set up via the channel monitor controls.
Yamaha Speaker Processing
Yamaha EMX512SC speakers are fine performers in their own right, but with Yamaha Speaker Processing you get extra-smooth highs and enhanced low-frequency output.
Durable, lightweight design
The EMX512SC powered mixer offers the ideal combination of outstanding sound performance and easy handling. It's lightweight - only 22lbs. - and features conveniently located handles for maximum carrying comfort. The EMX 512SC is also built tough to withstand the rigors of use on the road.

Not a bad mixer in a cheap plastic box
by wolfman63 from OhioThe sound is okay - not as good as a comperable Peavey - but useble. Worst problem is the brittle plastic case this thing is mounted in. Mine was dropped and the electronics survived, but i had to c... read more [+]ompletely dismantle the thing and epoxy the screw towers which are part of the front , in place so that the screws that go thru the back would hold the front and back case halves together. Power is good, effects are not as good as I expected from Yamaha. I should have spent the extra and bought the Peavey 8600. Better FX, more power, and better plastic. Who knew? close [-]
