Product Description

For larger venues and audiences, or if you plan to use it for outdoor sound, the Yamaha EMX512SC with a pair of whopping 500-watt amplifiers to ensure that your music or message comes across with full impact.

Superior Live Sound

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 offer 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.

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 Yamaha EMX512SC powered mixers are no exception. They're 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.

One-knob Compression on Mono Channels

All four monaural mic/line channels on the Yamaha EMX512SC features 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.

SPX Digital Effects

The Yamaha 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.

EQ

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.

Stand-by Mode

When you're done with a set simply engage the 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

All three mixers in this series offer a total of 12 input channels - four for monaural microphone (incl. 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. 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

These powered mixers certainly don't skimp on power. From the Yamaha EMX212S with 200 watts per channel to the Yamaha EMX512SC with a solid 500 watts per channel, there's a power configuration to suit any application and venue. 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.

Yamaha Speaker Processing

Yamaha Club-series speakers are fine performers in their own right, but with the EMX512SC's 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 10 kilograms (22lbs.) - and feature conveniently located handles for maximum carrying comfort. It's also built tough to withstand the rigors of use on the road.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (69 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The best value out there for powered mixers"
Sound: Great sounding mixer with VERY clean power. With the SV115's it sounds awesome. Feature: The one knob compressor is great. The bottom is angled in a way to make the mixer lean back which makes access to the controls much easier during a gig. No bending over to see the settings during a song. The speaker outs and power cord socket are placed high in the back so leaning the unit back doesn't kink the cable. An individual gain knob per channel would be a great addition, but it is very workable without it. Ease of Use: Extremelely easy to use. Even a beginner could dial in this mixer quick. Quality: I've made my living as a musician for about 20 years now and this is my 5th EMX series powered mixer. My gear gets set-up and torn down 5 or more times a week. I've only had one of the EMX's break, and that was because it fell out of a Van onto concrete. That crash caused it to break a circuit board. All the rest were retired after 2 - 3 years so I could stay current. Value: I've had Mackie, Soundcraft, Peavey and god knows what else. NOTHING compares to this unit for the price. I've bought more expensive and gone back to the EMX everytime. Manufacturer Support: Only had to deal with Yamaha once in 15 years. It was quite sometime ago, but I don't remember getting angry! The Wow Factor: To get 1000 WATTS of power in a box that weighs less than 10 lbs? Wow! When you first lift it you can't believe how light it is. That means alot when you set-up everyday. Easy to use and sounds great. Overall: I really stick with all Yamaha now. I have used about every type of system out there and chose this based on hands-on experience. If it disappeared I would replace it with the same.

"Great, very light and small profile powerhouse will built in effects."
Sound: Excellent sounding Mixer, very clean and loud enough for most bar venues. I play Acoustic Guitar and Digital Piano solo, and the system handles both very well. Feature: I really love the built in compressor and effects on this unit. the compressor is very easy to use - one know. Of course your are not going to get a good of a sound with it as with a separate unit, but the fact that is has only one knob makes it much easier and accessible to the non-technical musician. I don't want to waste time didling with setting for knee attack, etc. I just want to play. The built in effects are very good sounding, but could user more configuration parameters. I would also like it much better with dual effects, so you can have different effects on the Vocals than the Guitar. Speakon connectors are great, and I like the flexibility to be able to send power to the monitors, or not if you have a powered monitor. I gave it the 8 rating because of the lack of dual effects and the fact the there could be more EQ bands to cut feedback. The Feedback locator is fairly useless for me, as I only have 2 instrument plugged in at a time - but I am sure with 2 or 3 mics and guitars is would be helpful. Ease of Use: Really easy to use - especially the fac that it makes compression accessible to anyone with the turn of one know. the on;y reason I am giving it a 9 is because I think the EQ needs more bands to cut feedback, ao even better a notch filter would be a good addition. Quality: Fit and finish is very good, seems well made. It is actually so light I thought maybe they forgot to put the amp in it - I was amazed. the only reason I give it a 9 and not a ten is because they have these goofy removabe rubber plugs to use as back feet when you are not leaning the unit back. I will lose them sooner or later - but no big deal. Value: The fact that you really no longer need separate compressor and effects units makes this well worth the money. Manufacturer Support: I have not had to deal with support, so I gave this neutral rating. The Wow Factor: No such thing as a sexy mixer - but again, the integrated compressor and effects are groudbreaking, so I give it a good score. Overall: I will use this product until it dies and would replace it with the same if stolen. The compressor and effect really enhance my vocals, and I love not having to carry separates.
