All The Power You Need for Medium-Sized Audiences!
The Yamaha EMX312SC powered mixer proves that "portable" doesn't have to mean compromises in quality or power! With 300 watts per channel and the added advantage of one-knob compression on mono channels, the EMX312SC may be exactly the mixer you need.
Yamaha EMX 312SC 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 EMX312SC 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 EMX312SC 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.
One-knob compression on mono channels
All four monaural mic/line channels on the EMX312SC 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 EMX312SC 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 EMX312SC 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 EMX312SC, 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 EMX312SC's 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 EMX 12SC 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 EMX 312SC's four stereo pairs to handle stereo line sources you have four channels available for mono mic or line input. The EMX 312SC 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. From the EMX312SC with 300 watts per channel to the EMX512SC with a solid 500 watts per channel, there's a power configuration to suit any application and venue. The EMX312SC 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 EMX312SC 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 EMX312SC 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 EMX312SC is also built tough to withstand the rigors of use on the road.
