Serious Live Sound Capability Plus Innovative Digital Features
"COMP" CHARACTERISTICS
INPUT
The EMX5016CF delivers the convenience of an integrated powered mixer with
input capacity, flexible features, and solid sound that critical live sound
applications demand. It is remarkably compact and portable for a live sound
system with this much capability, but offers performance and reliability that will
satisfy the discerning professional user either on the road or in installed
applications. And thanks to leading Yamaha digital technology, the EMX5016CF
also includes a number of innovations that make it easier than ever to achieve
top-class sound in just about any venue. An impressive power output of 500
watts per channel means it can handle fairly large audiences, indoors or out.
The EMX5016CF goes considerably beyond the standard definition of
“powered mixer,” entering the realm of serious sound reinforcement.

Versatile 16-Input Configuration Adapts to Varied Source Requirements
Other Pro-class Features
The EMX5016CF has a total of 16 input channels – eight for monaural microphone or line input plus four
stereo pairs. The stereo channel pairs can function either as monaural microphone inputs or stereo line inputs.
This system gives you extra microphone inputs if your sources are mostly microphones, or if you need to
handle more stereo sources the EMXCF will comfortably handle four pairs in addition to eight monaural
microphone or line inputs. Switchable phantom power is provided for all microphone inputs.
・ Gain controls and 26-dB pad switches allow optimum
level matching with just about any source.
Advanced Channel EQ
3-band EQ is available on all 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 that require compensation,
providing significantly enhanced equalization potential.
Ample I/O for Expansion and Integration
"ATTACK" = 20ms
"RELEASE" = 250ms
OUTPUT
All you need to create a powerful, high-performance live sound system is the EMX5016CF, a pair of
speakers or two, and your sources. But it does feature a range of inputs and outputs that allow it to be
expanded with external gear or integrated into larger systems. Insert patch points on the mono input
channels, for example, let you add outboard signal processing to individual input channels. And although
you have all the monitor power and effects you’re likely to need built in, external AUX and EFFECT sends
allow you to route the mixer’s signals to external signal processing and/or monitor systems as required.
Stereo out, stereo sub-out, and record outputs are also provided.
One-knob Compression On Mono Channels
Up To 12 Mics, 16 Inputs Total
The EMX5016CF 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, 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.

Setting a live sound system’s output equalizer to optimally match room response is normally a
complicated process requiring noise generators, calibrated microphones, real-time analyzers, and a
great deal of time and experience. The EMX5016CF handles the entire process automatically, using
either pink noise or a recorded music source you supply. To precisely match the system’s response to
the room you’re in all you need to do is set up a microphone in an appropriate location, connect it to
channel 1, press MEASURE/CORRECT once to make the measurement, and then again to automatically
set the graphic equalizer for optimized response. The EQ setting can then be stored in one of the user
memories for later recall if needed.

Console Controllability and Versatility
Other Pro-class Features
With the many features and control functions provided by the EMX5014C, console style is the only way to
go. It’s still compact enough to be placed in the stage area and controlled by the performers – especially if
rack mounted – but its console configuration also makes it an ideal choice for front-of-house type operation
by a sound engineer. Linear faders are another advantage of the console layout, providing precise level
control as well as graphic representation of relative channel levels.
• Gain controls and 26-dB pad switches allow optimum level
matching with just about any source.
Expanded EQ Capability
• Channel ON switches let you switch individual channels into
or out of the mix.
Like the other EMX-series mixers, the EMX5014C features 3-band EQ on all input channels, but goes a
step further on the six 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 that require compensation or enhancement, providing significantly greater enhanced
tailoring potential. The stereo graphic equalizer has also been expanded with 9 bands that can be used
for more effective room voicing or feedback control.
OUTPUT
One-knob Compression on Mono Channels
Built-in channel dynamics is normally a feature reserved for much larger (and more
expensive) mixers. But in the EMX5014C you get compressors on all six monaural mic/line
channels. Judicious application of compression 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. Yamaha’s unique one-knob compressors are
simple to use, too. There’s no need to juggle multiple attack, threshold, makeup gain, and
other controls – just set the COMP control to the amount of compression you need.

example, you want to play recorded background music during breaks (that’s one stereo channel), and
you have a keyboard player with a stereo-output keyboard (that’s one more stereo channel), you still have
six mic/line inputs. If you use all four stereo pairs to handle stereo line sources you have four channels
available for mono mic or line input. This is a very versatile system that can adapt to your needs.

• The hardware team wanted to increase the size of
the body by 30 millimeters, but our goals for a
streamlined, compact design were important enough
that we decided to find other ways to achieve the
desired performance.
• Although compression is used in most pro audio
applications, it has been a bit too difficult for beginners
to take full advantage of. That’s why we’ve streamlined
it down to the essentials and made it very easy to use.
Reliability Without Compromising
Performance
• Another important new feature is FCL (Feedback
Channel Location). This system detects feedback and
shows you which channel is causing the problem.
Some mixers from other manufacturers have indicators
in the graphic equalizer section that show the
feedback frequency, but indicating the problem
channel allows the feedback to be more effectively
controlled using channel EQ.
• Simplicity was the main goal, particularly in the
console-type 5016CF and 5014C. We wanted to
consolidate the mixer controls, so the utility control
section has been clearly separated. We didn’t even
want any handles to be visible.
• If you try to control feedback using the EMX graphic
equalizer, for example, you end up changing the
sound of the entire program. For this reason it is far
more effective to control it at the input, thus avoiding
degradation of the overall sound.
The Battle Against Heat
* Tell us about how you avoided heat problems in such
compact enclosures.
• Heat and high power output unavoidably go handin-hand. In this case we were also determined to
reduce weight, so the design, hardware, and
mechanics teams joined forces to pursue this goal.
Changing even a single component can alter the heat
profile enough to require a change in heat sink design,
and that change can cause a change in sound quality,
so the design process involves a lot of trial and error.
• In this particular case, the fact that we were able to use
internal heat-flow simulation and analysis was a huge
advantage. We were able to define an enclosure shape
on the computer, and then by analyzing the heat flow
while refining the heat
sink configuration we
were able to come to
within 80% or 90%
of the ideal final
design. The final
stages using physical
prototypes still relied
on trial and error.
* The simplicity and aesthetic appeal of the designs are
quite impressive. Tell us about the design concept.
• An important idea implemented in the box-type
models is that they can be set at an angle like monitor
speakers. The integral handles are also an important
design feature, and achieving the required strength
was a constant problem.
• Achieving the ideal blend of size, weight, and
durability is quite difficult. As usual, demands from the
sales team continue to escalate while the hardware and
mechanics teams try to turn them into reality … without
ever reducing or compromising features or performance.
Computer simulation was called into play once again,
providing an accurate preview of the mold-flow
characteristics of the resin used for the box-type housings.
• The final strength of the molded housings depends to
a large degree on how the molten resin is introduced
in the mold, and how it flows within the mold.

Built-in Compression Adds Live-sound Versatility to the new EMX-series Powered Mixers
• Most “box type” mixers have no insert connectors, so
there has really been no convenient way to use
compression with them. As a result, many users of this type
of powered mixer have never used compression, but we
wanted them to have that option in the new EMX series.
SUM
SUM
An Inter view with the EMX Design Team
• The main difference is built-in compression.
Compression is indispensable in almost all
professional recording and live-sound applications, but
we believe that this is the first time it has been built into
an analog live mixer.

FOOT2
• In the box-type 212C, 312SC, and 512SC, it was
easy to mount the fan away from the circuit board to
minimize degradation of the audio signal. But in the
console-type EMX5016CF and EMX5014C finding the
ideal fan location was extremely difficult. Since the fan
must be located near the input circuitry, special measures
have been taken to ensure that electronic and mechanical
noise from the fan do not affect sound quality, while at
the same time ensuring maximum heat extraction.

• Of course sound quality is first and foremost in
the design of any model. Achieving the lowest
possible noise and hum when changing
components is always a challenge. There’s
influence from vibration, from the current flowing
through the components themselves, and a simple
op-amp IC change can precipitate a large change
in sound. We often find ourselves using the best
components we can find rather than compromise
on sound quality. Even the FCL system has an effect
on the sound, and we were able to achieve a
dramatic improvement by simply eliminating a
single component from the circuit. Once again, the
final design depends on trial-and-error listening
tests while changing components.
• With SPX effects in all models in this EMX series,
plus compression and FCL, you can rely on a single
EMX powered mixer to deliver outstanding live
sound, especially in applications that use mostly
microphones.
* Most compressors have at least two controls, what
is the idea behind having just one?
• Simplicity. Standard compression controls can be
very difficult to set quickly and accurately, but
we’ve managed to provide well-balanced threshold
and ratio settings that can be controlled by a single
knob. By focusing primarily on microphone
applications in which compression is applied to
vocals, acoustic guitar, or similar sources, greatsounding compression can be dialed in quickly and
easily.
• There’s a good description of compression and
its uses in the owner’s manual. We hope that our
users will take advantage of this very useful
feature.
