Features
Input Channels ................................................................................................ page 19
The EMX offers eight monaural mic/line input channels (1 to 9/10) and four stereo
input channel pairs (7/8 to 13/14), allowing you to freely mix inputs from microphones, line-level devices, and stereo devices. For example, you can mix six microphones with four stereo devices, or eight microphones with two stereo synthesizers.
Phantom Power (+48V) ................................................................................... page 25
A single switch turns phantom power on to all mic inputs. Use this feature to provide
power to condenser microphones.
High-Quality Digital Effects............................................................................ page 22
The mixer’s internal effector is in the same league as our SPX effector series, allowing you to create a rich range of variations with no external help. But of course you
are also free to use the SEND EFFECT jack to connect to an external effector of
your choice.
Compressors ................................................................................................... page 18
Compressors on channels 1 to 6 can be used to squeeze the dynamic range of
inputs such as microphones and acoustic guitars, attenuating the signal peak levels
and bringing out the lower levels. This feature helps reduce distortion and allows
overall volume to be set higher, resulting in a stronger and more impressive sound.
Rack Mounting ............................................................................................... page 29
To prepare the unit for rack mounting, use the (separately sold) RK5014 rack mount
kit.
Internal Power Amp ........................................................................................ page 25
The internal amp makes it possible to connect the SPEAKERS jacks directly to nonpowered speakers, with no need for an external amplifier in between. The rear panel
offers two types of speaker connectors: phone jacks and Neutrik Speakon jacks.
Before Turning On the Mixer
■ Connecting to Power
1
Be sure that the POWER switch is in the OFF position.
2
Connect the included power cord to the AC IN connector on the rear panel.
3
Plug the power cord into a standard power outlet.
■ Turning the Unit On and Off
NOTE
• To prevent an unpleasant burst of noise from the speakers, you should power up the sound sources first, and then the other devices in order of their
distance from the source (starting with the closest).
For example: Sound source (external device) → EMX unit → Amps (Powered speakers)
When turning power off, proceed in the opposite order.
• Before turning power on, make sure that the channel faders, ST master fader, AUX1/2 faders, ST SUB OUT control are all the way down.
• Rapidly turning the unit ON and OFF in succession can cause it to malfunction. After turning the unit OFF, wait for about 10 seconds before turning it
ON again.
Push the POWER switch in to turn the power ON.
The power lamp lights up to indicate that power is on. To turn the power off, push the switch again, so that it pops
out.

Quick Guide
Getting Sound to the Speakers
We begin by connecting up two speakers and generating some stereo output. Note that operations and procedures will vary somewhat according to the input devices you are using.
1
1
1
Connect up the speakers and your input devices
(microphones, instruments, etc.).
RIGHT
Use non-powered speakers and dedicated speaker cable. Connect
one speaker to SPEAKERS jack A (A1 or A2), and the other to jack B
(B1 or B2). Then connect your input devices (microphones, guitar,
etc.) to the appropriate input jacks on the top panel. For details, see
page 30.
• Before connecting input devices to the EMX, be sure that all of these
devices (including microphones) are powered off. And before turning
the power to any device on or off, be sure to turn the volume of that
device all the way down.
• Never connect both A and B jacks to a single speaker. Connection of
both jacks to the same speaker may result in damage to the mixer.
NOTE
WRONG!!
We recommend that you avoid connecting electric instruments (such as electric guitars and basses) directly to the EMX. Instead, these instruments
should be connected through an intermediary device such as a direct box, a
preamp (guitar amp), or an amp simulator.

If you have connected input devices to channels 1
to 6, set the [26dB] switch ON (
) or OFF (
) on
each channel accordingly.
If you have connected a line-level device, such as a keyboard or
audio device, set the channel’s switch to the ON (
). If you have
connected a microphone or other mic-level device, set the switch to
the OFF (
).
If you are using one or more condenser microphones for your inputs, set the PHANTOM switch to
the ON position (
).
• Be sure to leave this switch off if you do not need phantom power.
• When using phantom power, do not connect any devices other than
condenser microphones to the XLR input jacks. Other devices may be
damaged if connected to phantom power. This precaution does not
apply to balanced dynamic microphones, however, as these will not be
affected by phantom power.
• To protect your speakers and ears: Before turning the PHANTOM
switch ON or OFF, be sure to turn off the power to the mixer and to all
other devices having internal amplifiers. We also recommend that you
turn all output controls (Channel faders, ST Master fader, etc.) to minimum settings before operating the switch, to avoid risk of loud noises
that could cause hearing loss or device damage.

Turn on the power.
First turn on the power to all connected devices other than powered
speakers and amp, and then turn on the EMX itself. If using powered
speakers or amps, turn these on last.
NOTE
To prevent an unpleasant burst of noise from the speakers, you should power
up the sound sources first, and then the other devices in order of their distance from the source (starting with the closest).
For example: Sound source (external device) → EMX unit → Amps (Powered speakers)

To use the LEVEL meter to get an accurate reading of the incoming signal
level: Set the ST/AFL-PFL switch to AFL-PFL(
) and turn on the PFL
switch for each channel you are using. Adjust the GAIN controls so that
LEVEL meter indication occasionally rises above the “ ” (0) level. Note that
the PHONES jack outputs the pre-faded signal from all channels whose PFL
switch is ON, so that you can monitor these signals through the headphones.
Turn the ON switch on.
Set the ST Master fader to the “0” position.
Adjust the channel faders on all occupied channels.
Adjust the faders while listening to the output from the speakers.
NOTE
• To use the LEVEL meter to view the level being input to the internal amp:
Set the ST/AFL-PFL switch to ST(
).
• Use the LIMITER lamps to check for clipping of the signal from the SPEAKERS jacks. Note that the LIMITER lamps will come on earlier than the level
meter's PEAK indicators come on.
11
Adjust the overall volume of the ST Master fader.
It is acceptable for the LIMITER lamps to flash on briefly at times, but if
they remain lit continuously then there is risk of damage to your speakers
or to the internal amp. Reduce the ST master fader setting so that these
lamps do not stay on.

Making the Most of Your Mixer
An Introduction
You’ve got yourself a mixer and now you’re ready to use it.
Just plug everything in, twiddle the controls, and away you go … right?
Well, if you’ve done this before you won’t have any problems, but if this is the first time
you’ve ever used a mixer you might want to read through this little tutorial and pick up a
few basics that will help you get better performance and make better mixes.
A Place for Everything and Everything in its Place
A Plethora of Connectors—What Goes Where?
Questions you’re likely to encounter when setting up a system for the first time might include “Why all these
different types of connectors on the back of my mixer?” and “What’s the difference?”.
Let’s start by taking a look at the most common connector types.
The Venerable RCA Pin Jack
This is the “consumer connector,” and the one that has been most
commonly used on home audio gear for many years. Also known as
“phono” jacks (short for “phonogram”), but the term isn’t used much
these days—besides, it’s too easily confusable with “phone” jacks,
below. RCA pin jacks are always unbalanced, and generally carry a linelevel signal at –10 dB, nominal. You’re most likely to use this type of
connector when connecting a CD player or other home audio type
source to your mixer, or when connecting the output of your mixer to a
cassette recorder or similar gear.
Sleeve
Ring
The Versatile Phone Jack
The name “phone jack” arose simply because this configuration was first
used in telephone switchboards. Phone jacks can be tricky because you
can’t always tell what type of signal they’re designed to handle just by
looking at them. It could be unbalanced mono, unbalanced stereo,
balanced mono, or an insert patch point. The connector’s label will
usually tell you what type of signal it handles, as will the owner’s manual
(you do keep your manuals in a safe place, don’t you?). A phone jack
that is set up to handle balanced signals is also often referred to as a
“TRS” phone jack. “TRS” stands for Tip-Ring-Sleeve, which describes
the configuration of the phone plug used.
Tip
Stereo/TRS phone plug
Mono phone plug
The Sturdy XLR
This type of connector is generally referred to as “XLR-type,” and almost
always carries a balanced signal. If the corresponding circuitry is
designed properly, however, XLR-type connectors will also handle
unbalanced signals with no problem. Microphone cables usually have
this type of connector, as do the inputs and outputs of most professional
audio gear.

Balanced, Unbalanced—What’s the Difference?
In a word: “noise.” The whole point of balanced lines is noise
rejection, and it’s something they’re very good at. Any length of wire
will act as an antenna to pick up the random electromagnetic
radiation we’re constantly surrounded by: radio and TV signals as
well as spurious electromagnetic noise generated by power lines,
motors, electric appliances, computer monitors, and a variety of other
sources. The longer the wire, the more noise it is likely to pick up.
That’s why balanced lines are the best choice for long cable runs. If
your “studio” is basically confined to your desktop and all connections
are no more than a meter or two in length, then unbalanced lines are
fine—unless you’re surrounded by extremely high levels of
electromagnetic noise. Another place balanced lines are almost
always used is in microphone cables. The reason for this is that the
output signal from most microphones is very small, so even a tiny
amount of noise will be relatively large, and will be amplified to an
alarming degree in the mixer’s high-gain head amplifier.
To summarize
Microphones:
Use balanced lines.
Short line-level
runs:
Unbalanced lines
are fine if you’re in a
relatively noise-free
environment.
Long line-level
runs:
The ambient
electromagnetic
noise level will be
the ultimate
deciding factor, but
balanced is best.
How Do Balanced Lines Reject Noise?
** Skip this section if technical details make you queasy. **
Balanced lines work on the principle of “phase cancellation”: if you add two identical signals out of phase (i.e.
one signal is inverted so its peaks coincide with the troughs in the other signal), the result is … nothing. A flat
line. The signals cancel each other out.
While the desired audio signals in the hot and cold conductors are out of phase, any noise induced in the line
will be exactly the same in both conductors, and thus in phase. The trick is that the phase of one signal is
reversed at the receiving end of the line so that the desired audio signals become in-phase, and the induced
noise suddenly finds itself out of phase. The out-of-phase noise signal is effectively canceled while the audio
signal is left intact. Clever, eh?

Making the Most of Your Mixer
A balanced cable has three conductors:
1) A ground conductor which carries no signal, just the “ground” or “0”
reference against which the signal in the other conductors fluctuates.
2) A “hot” or “+” conductor which carries the normal-phase audio signal.
3) A “cold” or “–” conductor which carries the reverse-phase audio signal.

Let’s take a look at one of the most commonly used units in audio: the decibel (dB). If the smallest sound that
can be heard by the human ear is given an arbitrary value of 1, then the loudest sound that can be heard is
approximately 1,000,000 (one million) times louder. That’s too many digits to deal with for practical calculations,
and so the more appropriate “decibel” (dB) unit was created for sound-related measurements. In this system
the difference between the softest and loudest sounds that can be heard is 120 dB. This is a non-linear scale,
and a difference of 3 dB actually results in a doubling or halving of the loudness.
You might encounter a number of different varieties of the dB: dBu, dBV, dBM and others, but the dBu is the
basic decibel unit. In the case of dBu, “0 dBu” is specified as a signal level of 0.775 volts. For example, if a
microphone’s output level is –40 dBu (0.00775 V), then to raise that level to 0 dBu (0.775 V) in the mixer’s
preamp stage requires that the signal be amplified by 100 times.
A mixer may be required to handle signals at a wide range of levels, and it is necessary match input and output
levels as closely as possible. In most cases the “nominal” level for a mixer’s input and outputs is marked on the
panel or listed in the owner’s manual.
+ 20 dBu
0 dBu
Most professional mixers, power amplifiers, and other
types of equipment have inputs and outputs with a
nominal level of +4 dBu.
0.775 V
The inputs and outputs on home-use audio gear
usually have a nominal level of –10 dBu.

EMX5014C Owner’s Manual
Microphone signal levels vary over a wide range
depending on the type of microphone and the source.
Average speech is about –30 dBu, but the twittering of
a bird might be lower than –50 dBu while a solid bass
drum beat might produce a level as high as 0 dBu.

Making Better Mixes
Approaching the Mix—Where Do You Start?
Mixing is easy, right? Just move the faders around until it sounds right? Well, you can do it that way, but a more
systematic approach that is suited to the material you’re mixing will produce much better results, and faster.
There are no rules, and you’ll probably end up developing a system that works best for you. But the key is to
develop a system rather than working haphazardly. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Faders Down
It might sound overly simple, but it is usually a good idea to start with all channel faders off—all the way down.
It’s also possible to start with all faders at their nominal settings, but it’s too easy to lose perspective with this
approach. Start with all faders down, then bring them up one by one to fill out the mix. But which channel
should you start with?
Example1: Vocal Ballad Backed by Piano Trio
What are you mixing? Is it a song in which the vocals are the most
important element?
If so you might want to build the mix around the vocals. This means
bringing the vocal channel up to nominal first (if your level setup
procedure has been done properly this will be a good starting point),
and then adding the other instruments.
What you add next will depend on the type of material you are
working with and your approach to it. If the vocals are backed by a
piano trio and the song is a ballad, for example, you might want to
bring in the piano next and get the vocal/piano relationship just right,
then bring in the bass and drums to support the overall sound.
Example2: Funky R&B Groove
The approach will be totally different if you’re mixing a funky R&B
number that centers on the groove. In this case most engineers will
start with the drums, and then add the bass. The relationship between
the drums and bass is extremely important to achieve the “drive” or
groove the music rides on. Pay particular attention to how the bass
works with the kick (bass drum).
They should almost sound like a single instrument—with the kick
supplying the punch and the bass supplying the pitch. Once again,
there are no rules, but these are concepts that have been proven to
work well.

To EQ or Not to EQ
In general: less is better. There are many situations in which you’ll need to cut certain frequency ranges, but
use boost sparingly, and with caution. Proper use of EQ can eliminate interference between instruments in a
mix and give the overall sound better definition. Bad EQ—and most commonly bad boost—just sounds terrible.

effectively. Naturally you won’t want to do this if
the piano is playing solo.
The reverse applies to kick drums and bass guitars: you can often roll off the high end to create more space in
the mix without compromising the character of the instruments. You’ll have to use your ears, though, because
each instrument is different and sometimes you’ll want the “snap” of a bass guitar, for example, to come
through.
Some Frequency Facts
The lowest and highest frequencies than can be heard by the human ear are generally considered to be around 20 Hz
and 20,000 Hz, respectively. Average conversation occurs in the range from about 300 Hz to about 3,000 Hz. The
frequency of a standard pitchfork used to tune guitars and other instruments is 440 Hz (this corresponds to the “A3”
key on a piano tuned to concert pitch). Double this frequency to 880 Hz and you have a pitch one octave higher (i.e.
“A4” on the piano keyboard). In the same way you can halve the frequency to 220 Hz to produce “A2” an octave lower.
Boost with Caution

MID Boost
Signal
Level (dB)
If you’re trying to create special or unusual
effects, go ahead and boost away as much as
you like. But if you’re just trying to achieve a
good-sounding mix, boost only in very small
increments. A tiny boost in the midrange can
give vocals more presence, or a touch of high
boost can give certain instruments more “air.”
Listen, and if things don’t sound clear and
clean try using cut to remove frequencies that
are cluttering up the mix rather than trying to
boost the mix into clarity.
One of the biggest problems with too much
boost is that it adds gain to the signal,
increasing noise and potentially overloading
the subsequent circuitry.

Ambience
Reverb Level
Your mixes can be further refined by adding
ambience effects such as reverb or delay. On the
EMX mixers these effects are built in. The internal
DSP (Digital Signal Processor) can be used to add
reverb or delay to individual channels in the same
way as external effects processors, with the extra
connections required by, or the loss in sound quality
often caused by external processing. (Refer to
page 22).
It’s amazing how quickly your ears can lose
perspective and fool you into believing that a totally
washed-out mix sounds perfectly fine. To avoid
falling into this trap start with reverb level all the way
down, then gradually bring the reverb into the mix
until you can just hear the difference. Any more than
this normally becomes a “special effect.” You don’t
want reverb to dominate the mix unless you are
trying to create the effect of a band in a cave—which
is a perfectly legitimate creative goal if that’s the sort
of thing you’re aiming for.
You need to be careful not to overdo effects,
however, because going to far can undermine the
clarity and quality of your mix. Use your ambience
effects just enough to create the required feeling of
depth, but no more than is necessary to keep your
sound clean.
Reverb and Delay Time
A variety of reverb and delay effect programs are
provided, and nearly all of then have a reverb/delay
time parameter than can be adjusted via the panel
PARAMETER control.
Small adjustments to the reverb/delay time can
actually have a significant effect on the sound. The
optimum reverb time for a piece of music will depend
on the music’s demo and density, but as a general
rule longer reverb times are good for ballads, while
shorter reverb times are more suited to up-tempo
tunes. Delay times can be adjusted to create a wide
variety of “grooves”, and you need to select the time
that best suits the music. When adding delay to a
vocal, for example, try setting the delay time to
dotted eighth notes corresponding to the tune’s
tempo.
Reverb Tone
Different reverb programs will have different “reverb
tone” due to differences in the reverb time of the high
or low frequencies, or differences in the overall
frequency response of the reverb sound. Always be
careful not apply too much reverb, particularly in the
high frequencies. In addition to resulting in unnatural
sound, excessive high-frequency reverb can interfere
with the high frequencies in other parts of the mix. If
you can hear more reverb than direct sound in the
upper frequency range, try selecting a different effect
program. It’s always a good idea to choose a reverb
program that gives you the depth you want without
detracting from the clarity of the mix.
The Modulation Effects: Phasing,
Chorus, and Flanging
All of these effects work on basically the same
principle: a portion of the audio signal is “timeshifted” and then mixed back with the direct signal.
The amount of time shift is controlled, or
“modulated”, by an LFO (Low-frequency Oscillator).
When we say “time shift,” however, we’re not talking
in terms of minutes or even seconds.
For phasing effects the shift is very small indeed – a
difference measured in degrees of phase shift rather
than time units. The phase difference between the
modulated and direct signals causes cancellation at
some frequencies and reinforces the signal at others
– a “comb filter” effect – and this causes the
shimmering sound we hear. Phasing is the subtlest
of all these effects, producing a gentle shimmer that
can add life to a wide range of sources without being
too obtrusive.
For chorus and flanging the signal is actually delayed
by several milliseconds (a millisecond is a
thousandth of a second), with the delay time
modulated by an LFO, and recombined with the
direct signal. In addition to the comb-filter effect
described above, the delay modulation in these
effects causes a perceived pitch shift which, when
mixed with the direct signal, results in a harmonically
rich swirling or swishing sound. The difference
between chorus and flanging effects is primarily in
the amount of delay time and feedback used –
flanging uses longer delay times than chorus,
whereas chorus generally uses a more complex
delay structure. Chorus is most often used to thicken
the sound of an instrument, while flanging is usually
used as an outright “special effect” to produce otherworldly sonic swoops.

Compression
Have you ever wondered why professionally produced recordings sound so different from your own? There are
numerous reasons, of course, but one important factor is the judicious use of compression.
One form of compression known as “limiting” can,
when properly used, produce a smooth, unified
sound with no excessive peaks or distortion.
Compression can also be used within a mix to
make a voice or instrument seem to come
forward, or simply to even out level differences.
Compression can be used to make a mix seem
bigger and louder by producing a more “saturated”
sound. Professional compressors have numerous
parameters that need to be carefully adjusted:
attack, release, threshold, level, and sometimes
more. A professional sound engineer might need
to spend a considerable amount of time, based on
a considerable amount of experience, to set each
of these parameters to achieve the desired sound.
OUTPUT
(Min)
(Max)
INPUT
The EMX compressor makes achieving great
sound much easier. All you need to do is set a
single “compression” control and all of the pertinent
parameters are automatically adjusted for you.
The engineers who designed this fine compressor paid careful attention to achieving the best sound quality
possible so that you can quickly achieve pro-quality compression without having to worry about a confusing
multitude of settings.
A common example of the use of compression is to “tame” a vocal that has a wide dynamic range in order to
tighten up the mix. With the right amount of compression you’ll be able to clearly hear whispered passages
while passionate shouts are still well balanced in the mix. Compression can also be valuable on bass guitar,
producing a smooth bass sound that stays solid through the tune. Compression can also be applied to guitar
tracks to add extra sustain. Too much compression can be a cause of feedback, however, so use it sparingly.
Music First—Then Mix
In any case, the music comes first. Think about the music and let it guide the mix, rather than trying to do things
the other way around. What is the music saying and what instrument or technique is being used to drive the
message? That’s where the focus of your mix should be. You’re using a high-tech tool to do the mixing, but the
mix itself is as much art as the music. Approach it that way and your mixes will become a vital part of the music.

This lamp is used during setup to identify any channel

up for a performance. If the lamp lights up, adjust the
channel’s equalizer 9 or channel fader H to reduce
the level so that the lamp goes off.
NOTE
Input of a continuous sound (as from a CD player or
vocal) may cause the lamp to come on even in the
absence of howling.
This three-band equalizer adjusts the channel’s high,
mid, and low frequency bands. Setting the knob to the

corresponding frequency band. Turning the knob to the
right boosts the corresponding frequency band, while
turning to the left attenuates the band.
On channels 1 to 6, the MID range is controlled by two
knobs. The upper knob sets the center frequency for
the mid range, while the lower knob sets the attenuation (counterclockwise) or boost (clockwise) for the
range. (Again, setting the lower knob to “ ” produces
a flat response.) On stereo channel pairs 7/8 to 13/14
the mid-range frequency is fixed at 2.5kHz, so only

Y Maximum Output Switch
•
This selector lets you set the maximum output from for
the 2-channel internal amp to any of three levels. Set
this to match the size of your room or the input capacity of your speakers.
500W: Maximum 500W + 500W/4 ohms.
200W: Maximum 200W + 200W/4 ohms.
75W:
Maximum 75W + 75W/4 ohms
Z POWER AMP Switch
Selects the output that gets sent to the SPEAKERS
jacks, as follows.
L/R:
SPEAKERS jacks A1 and A2 output the signal from
the Stereo L bus, while jacks B1 and B2 output the signal from the Stereo R bus. The overall volume is
adjusted by the ST master fader.
AUX1/MONO:
SPEAKERS jacks A1 and A2 output the signal from
the AUX 1 bus; the volume for this signal can be
adjusted using the AUX1 fader. SPEAKERS jacks B1
and B2 output the mix of the signals on the Stereo L
and R buses; the volume can be adjusted with the ST
master fader.
AUX1/AUX2:
SPEAKERS jacks A1 and A2 output the signal from
the AUX 1 bus, while jacks B1 and B2 output the signal from the AUX2 bus. Volumes can be adjusted using
the AUX1 and AUX2 faders, respectively.
[ YS Processing Switch
This switch turns Yamaha Speaker Processing on or
off. The processor adjusts the speaker’s bass ranges so
as to compensate, for example, for a lack of subwoofers. Note however that the resulting frequency balance
may vary according to the speakers you are using.
\ PHANTOM Switch and Indicator
This switch toggles phantom power on and off. The
indicator lights up when the setting is on. If you set the
switch on, the mixer supplies power to the XLR mic
input jacks on all channels (the INPUT B jacks on
channels 1 to 6, and the MIC jacks on channel pairs
7/8 to 9/10). Set this switch on when using one or more
condenser microphones.
NOTE
When the switch is on, the mixer supplies DC +48V
power to pins 2 and 3 of all XLR input jacks.
] STANDBY Switch
This switch mutes the input to channels 1 to 6. The
switch lights up to indicate that the mute has been
turned on. Note that the mute does not work on channels 7/8 to 13/14.
NOTE
•
Be sure to leave this switch off if you do not need
phantom power.
When using phantom power, do not connect any
devices other than condenser microphones to the
XLR input jacks. Other devices may be damaged
if connected to phantom power. This precaution
does not apply to balanced dynamic microphones,
however, as these will not be affected by phantom
power.
When using the mixer for live performances, you can
fill in gaps in the performance by turning on the
standby switch and feeding background music from a
CD player or other such device into channels 7/8 to
13/14.
^ LEVEL Meters
If the ST/AFL-PFL switch a is set to ST, these meters
show the L and R levels of the signal output from the
ST OUT jacks S. If the ST/AFL-PFL switch is set to
AFL-PFL, the meters show the levels output from the
PHONES jack T.
NOTE
Note that the signal output to the ST OUT jacks is
also passed through the internal amplifier and then
output at the SPEAKERS jacks h. Keep an eye on
the LIMITER lamps X to ensure that the level at the
SPEAKERS jacks does not stay too high.
a ST/AFL-PFL Switch
If the switch is set to AFL-PFL (
), the LEVEL
meters show the level of the output at the PHONES
jack prior to adjustment by the PHONES control. If the
switch is set to ST (
), the meters show the level
output at the ST OUT jacks following adjustment by
the ST master fader.
NOTE The PFL (G, N, d) and AFL e switches select the
mix to be monitored at the PHONES jack.
b PHONES Control
Controls the level of the signal output to the PHONES
jack.
c ST SUB OUT Control
Adjusts the signal level to the ST SUB OUT jacks.
NOTE
•
To avoid damage to speakers, be sure to turn off
the power to the EMX itself and to any other
power amplifiers and power speakers before
switching phantom power on or off. We also recommend that you turn all output controls (channel
faders, ST Master fader, AUX1/2 faders, etc.) to
minimum settings before operating the switch, to
avoid risk of loud noises that could cause hearing
loss or device damage.
Has no effect on the output from the ST OUT and
SPEAKERS jacks.

d PFL (Pre-Fader Listen) Switch
Set this switch on if you want to monitor the pre-fade
of the signal that is being output at the ST OUT or ST
SUB OUT jacks. If the switch is on, the signal (prior to
adjustment by the ST master fader and ST SUB control) is fed to the PFL bus so that it can be monitored at
the PHONES jack.
NOTE
• The signal level into the PFL bus is not affected by
the settings of the ST master fader and ST SUB
OUT Control.
• The PFL (G, N, d) and AFL e switches select
the mix to be monitored at the PHONES jack. If
the channel’s PFL or AFL switch is ON, the channel’s output is mixed into the monitor signal to the
PHONES jack.
e AFL (After-Fader Listen) Switches
Set this relevant switch on if you want to monitor the
post-fade of the signal that is being output at the ST
OUT or the SEND AUX1 or SEND AUX2 jack. If the
switch is on, the signal (following adjustment by the
ST master fader or AUX1 or AUX2 fader) is fed to the
AFL bus so that it can be monitored at the PHONES
jack.
NOTE
• The signal levels into the AFL bus are not affected
by the settings of the ST master fader or the
AUX1/2 fader settings.
• The PFL (G, N, d) and AFL e switches select
the mix to be monitored at the PHONES jack. If
the channel’s PFL or AFL switch is ON, the channel’s output is mixed into the monitor signal to the
