Compact Mixer with Quality Built InLooking for a simple, easy-to-use mixer that delivers an exceptional audio performance? For recording, live, install or broadcast use there's a Soundcraft EPM mixer for you. EPM is available in three models: EPM8 (6 mono inputs), EPM8 (8 Mono inputs), and EPM 12 (12 Mono inputs), each with 2 stereo channels as standard.
Soundcraft EPM8 Mixer at a Glance:
Quality audio performance with premium preamps
The emphasis with the Soundcraft EPM Series is very firmly on quality audio performance, with an easy-to-understand control surface uncluttered by unnecessary features. The EPM8 features Soundcraft's premium GB30 mic preamp (as used on the large-format LX7ii and GB Series desks) to provide high headroom and
precision control of mic signals.
Balanced inputs with inserts
Mic and line inputs are provided on balanced XLR and 1/4" jack connectors, with the main stereo outputs on balanced XLRs for best integration with other professional equipment. There are also insert points on every mono channel and the mix outputs for external signal processing.
Unique Peak LEDs monitor the entire signal path
Because levels are constantly changing throughout the signal path - from the preamp stage, through filtering and EQ - the EPM mixers provide peak LEDs on all input channels. These monitoring LEDs are fed from multiple points in the signal path to ensure nothing is overlooked. The LEDs also employ proportional illumination to show signal level when approaching peaks, allowing you to maximize the quality of any signal by utilizing all the available headroom. The main stereo mix has 10-segment LED meters, with a PFL Active
indicator to show whether any channels are being soloed.

Great performance, no-frills
by Isaac from New York, NYThis is a great mixer for the price. You definitely get what you pay for. It gives a great clean sound. It doesn't give you as much control over the shaping of the sound, but if you have decent mic... read more [+]s or instruments, that shouldn't be a problem. I wish the PFL and mute functions had lights on each additional channel, but I think that would drive up the price. The one thing I think they really should have added was a volume control for the 2 track input. It's the only thing I hate about this mixer. But other than that, this is a solid mixer at a great price. close [-]

Excellent Mixer - Good Value
by Dirk from Chicago, IL USAI recently put together a basic sound system for a small church I've been attending lately. We were using my Behringer UB1204FX temporarily until the Soundcraft came in. (I didn't know much about eq... read more [+]uipment when I bought the Behringer.) I recently installed the Soundcraft EPM 8, and even through 15-year-old PA speakers, I could hear the difference. Great transparency. I hadn't realized how muddy the Behringer was until I heard this. The tone was better, and there was higher gain before feedback. This mixer doesn't have all the bells and whistles of many others, but it's a solid performer. Great value, too -- where else can you get 8 good mic channels for this price? Good build quality, and worth every penny. Just say no to the cheapies, and get this one (or the EFX 8). close [-]

by Dan Popp from Akron, OHI bought this unit to replace an Alesis MultiMix 12FX as a headphone mixer in my commercial studio. The Soundcraft is a dramatic improvement in several ways. It has real pro-level headroom, gain con... read more [+]trols on every channel, and a flexible but very simple layout. It also sounds better, with a smooth low end that was lacking from the Alesis.

The manual is a little confusing on a couple of points, and I wish these little mixers all had jacks facing the rear (or that could be swiveled to face the rear) rather than the top. Other than that, those crazy Brits have done it again!
As a bonus, it's not as ugly as it looks in the pictures. close [-]
