ON-BOARD EFFECTS FROM
THE WORLD-LEADERS IN
DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING.
Empowers the
FX16ii, MFXi &
EFX consoles.
FX16ii
For more than 35 years, Lexicon has been
synonymous with the best reverb and
processing in the business, continuously
introducing ground-breaking technology to
the audio industry. Today, Lexicon processing
is heard on over 80% of all recordings broadcast and film soundtracks. Now
Soundcraft empowers three ranges of multipurpose mixers – FX16ii, EFX, and MFX – with
stunning 24-bit digital effects processing
using the same AudioDNA® processor used
in the highly-acclaimed Lexicon MX300
processor.
THE PROFESSIONAL’S CHOICE FOR
MORE THAN 10 YEARS, NOW THE FX16
GETS STUNNING 24-BIT LEXICON EFFECTS.
Great sound quality, professional build
quality, flexible 4-bus architecture and a
space-saving sixteen mic inputs and direct
outputs in a rack-mounting frame made
the original Soundcraft FX16 popular in
both live and recording applications. Now
the pro’s choice gets even better with a
new 24-bit Lexicon on-board effects
section and universal internal power
supply (see right).
A comprehensive feature set includes 16
mic/line inputs and 26 inputs to mix in
total (including stereo returns and tape
return to mix). In addition to the mix
outputs, 2 buses allow groups of
instruments to be sent to additional
speakers, or sub-grouped to mix. 16 Direct
Outputs are individually switchable pre or
post fader, making them equally useful for
multitrack recording or live use. Both Solo
In Place and PFL solo are available, for
studio monitoring and channel gain set-up
applications respectively.
All 16 mic/line inputs are equipped with
high quality UltraMic™ preamps while a
‘truly British’ 3-band EQ with swept mid
benefits from custom designed pots which
give greater control across carefully chosen
frequencies. There are 4 Auxiliary Sends,
including a dedicated effects send, 1 prefade send and 2 pre/post-fader selectable
sends which are equally useful as extra
foldback sends or as effects sends in studio
mixdown situations. In addition, there are 4
Stereo returns, a separate Mono Sum
Output and 2 Subgroup Outputs.
A truly professional feature set is
completed by 100mm faders for precision
mixing control, and the FX16ii fits all of
these features into a rugged, compact
frame which can be optionally rackmounted into a 10U space. Cables can be
conveniently located behind the rack by
simply rotating the connector pod.

EPM/EFX
SOUNDCRAFT SOUND QUALITY, PERFORMANCE AND VALUE FOR
MONEY IN A VERSATILE RANGE OF MULTI PURPOSE MIXERS
– AVAILABLE WITH AND WITHOUT EFFECTS.
EFX/EPM mixers bring Soundcraft sound
quality, performance and value-for-money to
a wide range of applications including
recording, live sound, install and broadcast.
Available in 8 and 12 mono input channel
configurations, the EFX mixers feature builtin Lexicon 24-bit processing, providing
access to 32 world class reverb, delay and
chorus effects (see previous page). For users
preferring to use external processing, three
EPM mixers – (6, 8 and 12 mono inputs –
replace the EFX’s internal FX send with a
second Aux send. All EFX/EPM mixers
feature 2 stereo channels as standard.
Configured for desktop use with all audio
connectors conveniently located on the top
panel, EFX/EPM mixers can be easily
converted for rack-mounting using an
optional rack kit, with each mixer occupying
just 8U of standard rack space.
EFX/EPM mixers feature professional +48V
phantom power for condenser microphones
and use the same GB30 microphone
preamps used on Soundcraft’s acclaimed,
large format GB Series consoles to achieve
exceptional clarity, low-noise and controlled
overload characteristics.
Drawing on more than 30 years of
experience manufacturing professional
mixing consoles, Soundcraft has equipped
the EFX/EPMs with all the appropriate
features for modern mixing applications, at
the same time creating an uncluttered and
intuitive control surface that enhances the
operator experience.
Visual feedback is further enhanced by peak
LEDs on all input channels which are fed
from multiple points in the signal path to
ensure that nothing is overlooked. The LEDs
illuminate in proportion to the signal level
when approaching peaks, enabling the
quality of the signal to be maximised
through using all the available headroom.
Furthermore, the main stereo mix has 10segment LED meters with a PFL Active LED
to indicate that channels are being solo’d.
Rack ears are included with
12 channel consoles.
KEY FEATURES
• Built-in Lexicon 24-bit effects
• Multi-point signal channel status monitoring
with proportional illumination
• Precision GB30 mic pre-amps
• True, professional +48V phantom power
for condenser microphones
• Insert points for external processing

MORE CHANNELS, MORE AUXES AND 2 GROUP BUSSES.
WHEN YOU NEED EVEN GREATER FLEXIBILITY,
YOU NEED MFXi/MPMi.
MPMi/MFXi
Soundcraft’s MFXi/MPMi mixers are
compact and ideally equipped for live
sound applications including fixed
installations, houses of worship and
portable PA.
8, 12 and 20 mono input MFXi mixers
are empowered by built-in 24-bit Lexicon
processing, delivering 32 stunning
reverb, delay and chorus effects (see
opening page). The MPMi versions
replace the MFXi’s internal FX send with
a third Aux send for operators preferring
to use external effects. All MFXi/MPMi
mixers include 2 stereo input channels
along with a 2-track record output and a
2-track replay input which allows interval
music to be easily played from CD, MP3
or other music source.
For increased versatility, each model
in the MFXi/MPMi range has two
subgroups as well as a main stereo
mix, making control of groups of
channels much easier to manage. These
are supplemented by 2 (MFXi) or 3
(MPMi) Auxiliary busses which can be
used for effects sends or to provide a
foldback monitor mix for artists.
The MFXi/MPMi consoles
use vertically mounted
PCBs which are secured
with nutted pots for extra
strength, stability and
easy servicing. Well-spaced controls
provide easy access at those critical
control moments, enhanced by clear
legending which highlights linked or
associated functions.
Sound quality is assured by Soundcraft’s
now-legendary GB30 mic preamp and
the use of professional condenser
microphones is facilitated by the
provision of globally switched +48V
phantom power. New circuit designs
have improved audio quality, and
lowered the overall noise floor of the
console and FX sections. An integral
universal power supply negates the need
for an external power module.
Rack ears are included with
12 channel consoles.
KEY FEATURES
• Built-in Lexicon 24-bit effects
• Precision GB30 mic pre-amps
• True, professional +48V phantom power for
condenser microphones
• 2 Group busses
• Stereo Mix output
• Number of Mic inputs, all with 2 stereo line
inputs
• Maximum inputs to mix
• Aux sends, globally switchable pre or
post-fade
• FX send
• Universal internal power supply
• Optional rack ears (standard on 12 channel)
