The Yamaha EMX212S is the most affordable model in the EMX powered mixer series from Yamaha. It offers a pair of 200-watt amplifiers per channel that should be more than sufficient for small-to-medium size venues.
The Yamaha EMX212S is built to the same standards of sonic performance and rugged reliability that make Yamaha the first choice for live sound applications from schools to stadiums around the globe. 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 EMX212s powered mixer is no exception.
Feedback Channel Location
FCL (Feedback Channel Locator) 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.
SPX Digital Effects
The EMX212S, EMX312SC, and EMX512SC all feature 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
Graphic equalizers are provided for both the main and monitor channels, so you can effectively control feedback or tailor the sound the match the room and program material.
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.
The Yamaha EMX212S offers a total of 12 input channels - four for monaural microphone 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 The EMX212S doesn't skimp on power with 200 watts per channel. The mixer 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.
Durable, Lightweight Design
The EMX212S powered mixer offers the ideal combination of outstanding sound performance and easy handling. It's lightweight and features conveniently located handles for maximum carrying comfort. It's built tough to withstand the rigors of use on the road.
Yamaha Speaker Processing
Yamaha Club-series speakers are fine performers in their own right, but with Yamaha Speaker Processing built into the EMX212S, you get extra-smooth highs and enhanced low-frequency output.
