Soundcraft have unveiled another addition to the rapidly growing new Soundcraft family, the multi-format low-cost EPM mixers.

The emphasis with the Soundcraft EPM is very firmly on quality build and audio performance, with an easy to understand control surface uncluttered by unnecessary facilities, and Soundcraft have brought new technologies and ideas to this very cost-effective range. Surface mount technology is used throughout, using close-tolerance components for high accuracy and repeatable settings for EQ and gain controls. The highly-transparent GB30 Mic amp (designed by Graham Blyth for the companys 30th anniversary, and also used on the larger LX7ii and GB Series consoles) features high-resolution adjustment over a wide gain range of 55dB, and provides a stunning +22dB headroom through the console. True professional 48-volt phantom power caters for condenser microphones of all types.

A unique feature of the signal monitoring is the PEAK led. This uses multipoint signal take-offs to watch for overload in several parts of the channel strip, and the led lights more brightly as the signal approaches the peak point. For smooth and accurate channel control, the EPM has 60mm high quality faders as used on other Soundcraft desks. The monitor output and headphone output work in parallel so that performers can still listen on phones while an engineer is listening on studio monitors.

2 configurable auxiliary buses
XLR-type and metal jack connector sockets
RCA phono stereo playback inputs and record outputs
3-band EQ with a swept mid on mono inputs
2-band EQ on stereo inputs
TRS insert sockets and inserts on all mono inputs and mix output
Ten-segment LED output metering
Intuitive and comprehensive solo system
Headphone output
Easily rack mountable
The Soundcraft EPM will find itself in many applications including live music, recording, houses of worship and multi-speaker installations.

I love this mixer. The sound is crisp and clear and no real beefs with it at all. The only really annoying thing about it is that it has no power switch ... man I hate that! No wall-wart though!

Closest StoreMoncton, New Brunswick
used as a rental for 70 people gig. not enough inputs to accomodate 3 guitarists with 5 guitars hooked up, piano, 3 vocals on wireless and 3 mics for guests. Had to keep plugging in/out which was a drag. Sound pressure level was superb with 2 yorkville NX550s as mains with 2 added NX550s outside in series. Am buying the FX 16ii which has same Lexicon effects but more inputs. Small, portable, solid. Dependable & delivers. Count your inputs before setting up. Old computer bag can work well as carry-all.

Bought it a while ago. Haven't used it "live" yet. Tried it with Steinberg CI1 to test record digital audio track. Was impressed with excellent transparency from this mixer during recording and playback. Should be excellent for live audio work.
