The 8-Channel Soundcraft EFX mixer uses the same AudioDNA processor featured in many Digitech and Lexicon outboard products, including the highly respected Lexicon MX500 processor.

The Soundcraft EFX Series combines all the features of the popular Soundcraft EPM mixer with a built-in 24-bit, digital Lexicon effects processor, expanding the Soundcraft low-cost, multipurpose compact range.

With over 35 years of experience, the Lexicon name is among top creators of reverb and processing equipment in the business, ensuring the finest quality effects not usually found in a console at this price level.

The Effects section fits neatly into the mixer's compact framework, with 2 stereo channels and an effects-send on each channel. There are 32 effects to choose from with a tap tempo function, 3 effects parameter controls, and a user effects setting store facility. An effects channel level clip LED and Mute function give the user even more flexibility.

The emphasis with the Soundcraft EFX is very firmly on quality build and audio performance, with an easy-to-understand control surface in line with the Soundcraft professional range. The Soundcraft EFX uses the highly transparent GB30 Mic amp (designed by Graham Blyth for the company's 30th anniversary, and also used on the larger LX7ii and GB Series professional consoles). The Soundcraft EFX also offers all the features of the Soundcraft EPM, most notably a configurable aux send, XLR and 1/4" metal jack connector sockets, RCA phono stereo playback inputs and record outputs, a 3-band EQ with a swept mid on the mono inputs, a 3-band EQ on the 2 stereo inputs, TRS insert sockets, inserts on all mono inputs, ten-segment LED output metering and a headphone output.

The Soundcraft EFX will find itself in many applications including live music, recording, houses of worship and multi-speaker installations.

    I have purchased nothing but Soundcraft for years now, and never had a bad moment .Their boards are clean enough for recording studio or live. Impossible to go wrong for their pricing.

      Comments about Soundcraft EFX 8-Channel Mixer:

      This replaced my 14 year old Mackie 1402. The Mackie was nice but this is a step up and having on board efx is really a nice plus. I use this mostly for local solo and small band gigs. Having sweepable midrange is a really nice extra which the Mackie didn't have.

      Soundcraft EFX8 mixer

      Comments about Soundcraft EFX 8-Channel Mixer:

      I have owned this mixer for about 2 weeks. I just used it to make a demo for a promo kit. The sound quality is excellent and the Lexicon effects are second to none. The construction is great. The layout has been well planned out so that everything you need is right up top, not in the back.

      a great performer in a small package

      Comments about Soundcraft EFX 8-Channel Mixer:

      I've had this mixer now for about 9 months. I use it in the studio and have also taken it out gigging a number of times. it has yet to let me down.I love the fact that you can change the "fx's" to compensate for whatever environment you're in.I only give it a 4.5 due to the two track section which I'm sure works, but am still trying to figure out why I can't play cassettes or Cd's.this guy is rugid and thus far, very reliable.

      Comments about Soundcraft EFX 8-Channel Mixer:

      I just bought this unit and am already greatly impressed with the clarity of sound. I'll be using it for solo to quintet gigs which it is ideal for. Compactness with quality sound is essential to combo style music. I'm glad to have a soundcraft mixer that's affordable and sounds great!
