16 Versatile Input Channels

With a total of 16 input channels the EMX5016CF can connect a range of microphones, instrument and line level instruments to produce a loud and dynamic live and studio mix. The EMX5016CF features eight inputs for mono microphones or line inputs plus four stereo pairs which can function as either mono microphones or stereo line inputs. This system also 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 monaural microphone or line inputs. Switchable phantom power is provided for all microphone inputs.

Advanced 3-Band & Graphic EQ

Incorporating a 3-band EQ on all 16 input channels the EMX5016CF offers advanced tonal shaping with a 10 K high shelf, 250 - 5 K sweepable middle shelf and 100 Hz low shelf with rotary cut/boost controls. Additionally the impressive 9-band graphic EQ on the main output channel can be used to precision tweak your mix and even offers the ability to save and recall presets to optimize workflow.

Mono Channel Compression

The EMX5016CF features compressors on all mono microphone/line channels that can help to make vocals ride the mix better, give you that smooth compressed guitar sound, deliver more punchy bass, and generally refine your mixes in a multitude of ways. These unique one-knob compressors are surprisingly simple to use. There are no multiple attack, threshold, makeup gain, and other controls - just set the COMP control to the amount of compression you need.

Automatic Feedback Suppression

Although the graphic equalizer can be used for feedback control, the EMX5016CF provides a Feedback Suppressor system that is dedicated to the job. 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 AUTO 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.

Dual Yamaha SPX Effects Processors

The EMX5016CF includes not one but 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 however if you need other effects as well they're right at your fingertips, and you can use two different effects simultaneously. Each effect 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.
