Yamaha EMX5016CF 16-Channel 500 Watt Powered Mixer
The Yamaha EMX5016CF powered mixer gives you 16 inputs, great tone-shaping options, and 500 watts per channel of built-in power to run an effective live sound system with precision and clarity. All input channels include 3-band EQ with mid-frequency sweep. The mono mic/line channels on the EMX5016CF feature individual compressors, so you can pump up your live mixes easily. A 9-band digital stereo graphic equalizer gives you recallable presets and works in concert with an effective Feedback Suppressor system to give you a handle on your mixes. These features (plus a ton more) help make the Yamaha EMX5016CF a live winner!
16 versatile inputs
Yamaha's EMX5016CF has a total of 16 input channels – eight for mono microphone or line input, plus four stereo pairs. The stereo channel pairs can function either as monaural mic inputs or stereo line ins. This system gives you extra microphone inputs if your sources are mostly microphones, or if you need to handle more stereo sources, the EMX5016CF will comfortably handle four pairs in addition to eight mono mic or line inputs.
3-band EQ, single-knob compression
Yamaha put 3-band EQ on all the EMX5016CF's input channels, but extra versatility is provided on the eight mono channels with mid-frequency sweep controls. The mid EQ center frequency can be continuously swept from 250 Hz through 5 kHz so you can precisely pinpoint frequencies in the critical midrange. The EMX5016CF also features compressors on all monaural microphone/line channels that can help to make vocals ride the mix better, give you that smooth compressed guitar sound, deliver more punchy bass. Just set the COMP control to the amount of compression you need.
Digital graphic EQ with presets, plus frequency response correction
An advanced digital 9-band stereo graphic equalizer goes beyond conventional analog types with a refined control interface, instant-recall presets, and user memory locations. It also works with the console's innovative Frequency Response Correction system for great response-shaping control. You can manually adjust each band, or use one of the presets as a starting point and edit from there. You also get three user memories to store your own EQ curves for instant recall whenever needed. The EMX5016CF's Frequency Response Correction System automatically adapts its output EQ to a given room, using either pink noise or a recorded music source you supply. The EQ setting can then be stored in one of the user memories for later recall if needed.
Onboard feedback suppressor and maximizer
The Feedback Suppressor works by detecting feedback frequencies on the stereo bus and applying precise notch filters to eliminate the feedback. The Feedback Suppressor has an automatic mode that automatically keeps track of and attenuates feedback frequencies for you, and a sensitive manual mode that lets you pinpoint and attenuate feedback points one by one. The EMX5016CF Maximizer is an advanced 3-band compressor that can be applied to the stereo bus for a more punchy "up-front" overall sound. Simply press the MAXIMIZE switch to instantly give the mix more presence and impact without sacrificing musical subtlety.
Built-in Yamaha SPX effects
The EMX5016CF includes two top-performance Yamaha SPX digital effect processors built in! You might only need ambience effects such as reverb and delay for live sound applications, but if you need other effects as well they're right at your fingertips, and you can use two different effects simultaneously. Each processor offers a selection of 16 top-quality effects including reverb, echo, chorus, flanger, phaser, and even distortion, with editable parameters that allow you to customize each effect.
