The Yamaha EMX512SC Dual 500 Watt 12 Input 8 Channel Powered Mixer allows you to easily deliver the exact sound you want with plenty of power to spare. Precise, yet simple control of volume, effects and a graphic equalizer gives you the perfect sound with the highest quality. It's built with the same standards of performance and reliability that has always made Yamaha the first choice for so many pros around the world for live sound from schools to stadiums.

One-knob Compression on Mono Channels
The EMX512SC features four mono mic/line channels with built-in compression helping you bring vocals forward the mix without overpowering the sound at peak points. Guitars and bass are evened out and put in your control as well, making your sound professional and balanced. One knob makes these compressors simple to use and there's no need to worry about different settings for attack, threshold or makeup gain. The COMP control gives you all compression you'll need for your immediate live purposes.  

SPX Digital Effects
The Yamaha EMX512SC also offers you 16 high-quality SPX effects, including reverb, echo, chorus, flanger, phaser, and even distortion, giving you full creative control over your sound environment. Separate Graphic EQ's are provided for the main channel and monitors, so you complete control over feedback and adjust the sound to match the program material as well as the room.

Stand-by Mode mutes all mono channels while leaving the 2-track inputs active for background music playback, the Feedback Channel Locating (FCL) System lights LED indicators over each channel light if the channel starts to feed back, so you'll know right away which channel needs adjustment.

All three mixers in this series offer a total of 12 input channels - 4 for mono mic/instrument (with Phantom Power) or line input, plus 4 pairs that can function either as monaural mic/instrument 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. Or if, for example, you want to play recorded background music during breaks (that's 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 four stereo pairs to handle stereo line sources you have four channels available for mono mic or line input. This is a very versatile system that can adapt to your needs.

High Power For Main and Monitor Speakers assure you that the EMX512SC can deliver a solid 500 watts per channel. All models also feature 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.

Durable and Lightweight, the Yamaha EMX512SC Powered Mixer offers the ideal combination of outstanding sound performance and easy handling. It's lightweight (22lbs.) featuring convenient handles for easy carrying and it's built tough to stand up to use and abuse on  on the road.

          This Yamaha powered mixer pushes out 500 watts and 8 channels. Each channel can take advantage of the digital effects built right into the mixer. 3 band EQ to adjust every channel and at
          22 lbs. its easy to move around. This is a real hands-on review from David @ Sam Ash Ontario.

            This is a great, compact mixer for a small PA setup, such as a small concert venue. Just add a couple of passive speakers, and you're good to go. It's also great for rehearsal spaces where you just need to mic vocals. You can use the powered outs for monitors instead of mains.

              Comments about Yamaha EMX512SC Dual 500 Watt 12 Input 8 Channel Powered Mixer:

              The Yamaha EMX512SC is the best powered mixer on the market. The price might be a little high, but there's so much functionality packed into this little box. There are 8 microphone preamps, which is plenty for bands who run their own sound. These same channels also have line inputs for plugging in keyboards or other sound modules. The channel strip itself is very clean with very low noise. There is a very useful 3 band equalizer on each channel, as well as digital effects. This powered mixer outputs 500 watts per side into 4 ohm speaker cabinets and 350 watts per side into 8 ohm speakers. The output section can also be configured so that one side can be used for the mains and one side can be used for monitors. There is also graphic equalizers for both outputs. This mixer truly has everything a band needs to run their own sound while they are playing and it is built with the quality that one would expect from a name like Yamaha. This is a real hands on product review from Ryan@ Sam Ash King of Prussia.

                  Yamaha EMX512SC Dual 500 Watt 12 Input 8 Channel Powered Mixer is quite awesome for when you really need to pump up the jams. With 500 watts on each side, you will have no trouble filling most medium sized venues, schools, churches with powerful speakers. The built in effects make this so much easier than carrying around more gear. And the name Yamaha means you don't have anything to worry about.

                          More than enough power for a couple hundred people.
                          The sound was clear and clean.

                            This is by far my favorite powered mixer, and one of very few I trust. This Yamaha sounds great and puts out a good amount of power. The one knob compression and built in effects are useful, and easy to use. I've used my fair share of powered mixers for everything from presentations in school gymnasiums, to rock concerts in rented halls, and I can tell you this one holds up better than any of the others I've used. I've seen these survive falls that would be the end of any other powered mixer. If you are looking for a powered mixer, this is the one to buy.

                              First off it's Yamaha so it's going to last you for years and years. Also, this thing puts out great sound and plenty of power to power your passive speakers. At 500 watts per side, this thing is not only portable and lightweight, but will do anything you put it up to. 8mic inputs are plenty for most gigs from small to medium. The onboard effects are really cool and are there if you choose to use them. No more lugging around rack mounted amps, etc.

                              Ideal for small to medium venues, churches, schools, DJs, bands, etc. I especially like the mute feature so you can silence all the channels while you play back music through the AUX in. Really cool feature for level checks or just warming up the crowd before you hit the stage. You need to check this thing out!
