OVERVIEW

Portable, convenient, and packed with power and effects!

The durable, lightweight Yamaha EMX212S 12-Channel Powered Mixer has dual 200W amps, 16 Yamaha SPX effects, built-in graphic EQs, and loads of input options.

Flexible power
The power mode switch lets you use the dual power channels as a stereo amplifier, or use one channel for the main speakers and one for the monitors, with separate monitor mix setup via the channel MONITOR controls.

SPX digital effects

16 Yamaha SPX effects-including reverb, echo, chorus, flanger, phaser, and even distortion-let you add the finishing touches to your live presentation.

Graphic EQs
Graphic equalizers are provided for both the main and monitor power channels so you can effectively control feedback or tailor the sound to match the room and program material.

Input options
The Yamaha EMX212SC offers a total of 12 input channels-4 for monaural microphone (with phantom power) or line input, plus 4 pairs that can function either as monaural mic inputs or stereo line inputs-providing a versatile mix of input capabilities for a wide range of applications. If only mic inputs are needed, you can use up to 8 mic channels. If you want to play recorded background music during breaks using a stereo input, and have a keyboard player with stereo outputs, you still have 6 mic/line inputs available. If all 4 stereo pairs are used to handle stereo line sources, you still have 4 channels available for mono mic or line input. It's a versatile system that can adapt to your needs with ease!

Yamaha Speaker Processing

Yamaha Speaker Processing (YSP) provides optimized matching with speakers, for clean, solid reproduction that will deliver your music with maximum impact.

FCL (Feedback Channel Locator) system
The Yamaha FCL (Feedback Channel Locating) system makes locating and eliminating feedback easier than ever. FCL indicators provided on each input channel indicate which channel feedback is occurring in, so you can identify it visually and adjust levels or EQ as required. Another handy features is a Standby switch that mutes channels 1 through 8 so that, for example, after rehearsal or between sets you can mute performer's inputs 1 through 8 without having to change fader settings, while stereo inputs 9 through 12 remain active for background music playback.

Durable, lightweight design
At only 22 pounds and featuring conveniently located handles, the EMX212S powered mixer is easy to transport. It's built to withstand the rigors of the road and deliver reliable performance, night after night.

FEATURES
  • Dual 200W amps
  • Power mode switch allows amps to function in stereo, or as separate mono channels for mains and monitors

I play in a band, and do sound for other bands. Mostly small shows. We use this mixer in practice and I find myself setting it up for a show most weekends. It gets a TON of use. We've had it for about a year now and haven't had a single issue with it. Very tough. The sound quality was a nice surprise. Whatever that "YSP" yamaha speaker processing is, I don't know, it doesn't seem to do anything. However the sound of this mixer is very clear. The effects are definitely usable. Well, I can vouch for the reverb and chorus.
I love this thing, however, one complaint. You can only run one channel at 4ohms. Pretty much all my speakers run 8 ohms, when two are ran in parallel that's 4 ohms. So really, you can run 1 main and 1 monitor, or 2 mains, or 2 monitors. Which is fine, I just didn't understand this when I bought it. We got around this by running powered mackies as the mains and saving the onboard amp for the monitors.
Oh, also, there is no mic gain knob. Just a button that switches between line/mic. Still works, and it sounds great. You'll like this mixer

Let me start by saying this mixer is well built, has plenty of inputs, and the effects are ok. However the description of this powered mixer is a little deceiving. The description states this mixer has two 200 Watt amplifiers. What they don't say is that is 200 watts per channel at 4 ohms, when most folks have 8 ohm speakers. The power for 8 ohm speakers is 130 watts per channel. I ordered this powered mixer for my home studio to use with a set of Yamaha Club Series 12 inch PA speakers, and this head could not even keep up with a 25 watt guitar amplifier (clean). This powered mixer is not loud at all. 135 watts per channel should be more than plenty for a small studio, but this thing has no power to back up the great features and durable build of the unit. I could not believe the lack of power this thing had, so I sent it back and got something bigger. Bottom line is, nice mixer but not enough power for much of anything.
Lots of great features, inputs, and effects, but not enough power (wattage) for even the smallest of gigs. The description of power is misleading.
Again, this is a quality built powered mixer, but lacks power to be great! Not very loud at all.
Considering the low power (wattage) of this unit, there are better deals out there.

Comments about Yamaha EMX212S 12-Channel Powered Mixer:

I have owned this mixer for about 2 years. I have used it just about everyday either for gigs or practice. I use it to record too. I record myself playing drums,Bass, and Piano then play these tracks through the system and play guitar live and sing. This is an outstanding mixer! Some research needs to be done before you buy. Keep in mind your needs and then purchase a system that will fit those needs. If you don't know how to match up a mixer to speakers, ask or better yet get a package system. As for power, this thing really puts out, for a 200/400 system. If you need 1000 watts it probably won't do the job, but is that the mixers fault? I have played in homes, backyard BBQs, roller skate rinks, restaurants coffee shops,and have not been dissatisfied yet. I have speakers and monitors that match the mixers specs. I also like that I can switch to 400 watts for larger venues. If a small, great sounding, reliable, easy to use system is what you need, I haven't heard one yet that beats this one.

Nice Features and Well Made but NO POWER!!

By Lucas Wesscott

Comments about Yamaha EMX212S 12-Channel Powered Mixer:

This is a well built powered mixer head with nice effects and plenty of inputs, however, this PA head is advertised at 2 200 Watt power amps, but what they don;t tell you is that is for 4 ohm speakers and not 8 ohm speakers like most people have, so the wattage is 130 watts per channel. Bottom line is, thing this is not very loud, and all the great features this head has are useless without ample power.

The reliable best.

By Cowboy singer

Comments about Yamaha EMX212S 12-Channel Powered Mixer:

I've used these mixers for ten years also, and I agree with the musician who generally abused it on the road. They are the best around, plus they have the best reverb chip I've ever heard...period.I'm not sure about the guys who rate this so low, considering they don't own one. Go figure. I have had two and am buying a third one currently for gigs. I do vocals and guitar, so the power is fine..so strong I could rip faces off in the first row of the venues I play. I actually have to be careful of that. BUY THIS MIXER if you want quality at a reasonable price.

10 years of excellent service

By Larry Griffin

from Roanoke Island, NC

Comments about Yamaha EMX212S 12-Channel Powered Mixer:

I bought the earlier version of the EMX212S (the EMX640 which is the same 200 x 200 power with 6 channels) in 1998. Over the last 10 years I have performed an average of 5 gigs a week (over 2500 gigs) and the Yamaha has performed flawlessly. It has a very clean sound and plenty of power for the venues I play. It has worked inside, outside on decks in the salt air, kept in my truck for months at a time, spilled on, banged around, dropped and generally road abused and has worked perfectly at every show. I will be retiring it for further use in the studio and replacing it with the new 8 channel version the EMX212S. I also just replaced my Yamaha APX 12 string acoustic/electric guitar, after the same 10 hard years of service, with a new Yamaha compass series 12 string. I am absolutely sold on and highly recommend Yamaha's quality, sound and dependability in their electronics and instruments as well!!!!

      The SPX digital effect processor didn't work. the power indicator light would glow, but no matter where the selector & paramater switches were positioned & the effect controls were turned, it had no effect--no change in the sound at all. I called your office & was told to send it back, free of charge, and made arrangements to pay a little extra & you would send me a new one, instead of a restock. I sent it back on 1/2/2013.

      Comments about Yamaha EMX212S 12-Channel Powered Mixer:

      My Fender Passport needed repair and I bought this Yamaha as a replacement while waiting to get the FPP back. It works beautifully with my FPP speakers and has more power. And there's far more input room for my 2 mics, 2 guitars, keyboard, backing tracks, etc. than on the FPP head.

      I never liked the goofy toy-karaoke vertical look of the FPP. This Yamaha EMX212s head looks real professional. Place it on an X-frame keyboard stand at its highest level, tilt the head back on its 45-degree slant base and the control face is looking right up at you for easy viewing.

      Finally, if you're not a big fan of heavy lifting (as I'm not either at age 77), you'll love this 22 lb bundle of power. Just make sure you match the impedance ratings (ohms) with your current so speakers so the system is compatible.
