Soundcraft EPM 8 overview

  • 1Description

The Soundcraft EPM Series provides a straight-forward, yet professional alternative to complex audio mixers. Constructed in a 6-, 8- or 12-channel chassis, the EPM mixers are well-suited for recording and sound reinforcement applications.

The EPM 8 features 8 mono and 2 stereo input channels providing the flexibility needed to accommodate the recording studio, venue or touring musician. All mono inputs feature 1/4" phone line and balanced XLR microphone inputs. The famed GB30 microphone preamps provide the quiet, detailed signal synonymous with Soundcraft's large FOH consoles. The stereo inputs provide L/R 1/4" phone connections and are ideal for connecting stereo devices such as keyboards, returning effects, etc.

The EQ section features a sweepable mid-range on all mono channels and provides smooth frequency contouring. Inserts on all mono channels and stereo output enable signal routing to external signal processors. The compact profile, rich sound quality and flexibility of the EPM Series provides everything necessary for use in project recording, video editing, night clubs, bars, meeting halls, houses-of-worship, and more.

    Soundcraft EPM 8 reviews

    EPM 8 - 8 Mono + 2 Stereo Audio Console is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features for the price Normally, I tend to go to Mackie when I need a smaller console, but this time I needed to weigh cost vs features. I needed something with 8 mic pres, so the smallest Mackie I could get would be the 1604, but that was out of my price range for this show. Soundcraft is a name I trust after using their larger consoles like the MH3. With this console, you get 8 mic pres, 2 stereo channels, 2 auxes and the stereo out. It's missing some of the features of the Mackie 1402 which in that range, such as the Alt 3-4 outputs, but for this show, I didn't need those features. The faders had a good amount of resistance, which is good I think. I dislike using faders that have no resistance at all. Knobs all feel good and the design overall is pretty simple and compact. The power goes in underneath facing the user, which is odd as opposed to being on the rear. The only real issue I have with this mixer is that the Mute buttons have no light indicator when engaged, and it's hard to tell sometimes if the channel is actually muted or not because the button doesn't go down all that far. I found myself having to look at other channels to see if it was muted, which on the fly in a dark area isn't all that great. Overall, a good mixer for the price and great if you're on a budget.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice unit I used this unit in a school play setting and was impressed with the overall performance. As I have students helping to run the system, the lack of a light on the mute switch was an on going frustration. Other wise the unit is a great option for a small budget.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great board. Does what we need very wel. we use this board for school functions like our play. Does very well with enough inputs. Just wish it had lights for the mute buttons to see mute is applied. Great board though!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK, But Expected Better From Soundcraft I had to replace a large, professional Soundcraft studio mixing board (20 years old) due to it becoming noisy from what I assume are leaking capacitors. Cost more to find and fix the problem than it was worth. I have always liked Soundcraft quality, and because of that, purchased this small mixer to take its place. It works okay, but I'm not impressed with the quality of the pots or sliders; its like they used the cheapest components available, just like the other mixers in this price range. I would have paid more for better components, i.e. potentiometers that don't wiggle and stiffer sliders....but no, they have to use the same cheap stuff like everyone else. But I guess that's the way of manufacturing these days, and, you get what you pay for. The other thing I dislike about this mixer is that it doesn't even have an off/on switch. C'mon Soundcraft!! How difficult would it be to add a switch on the side?!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good deal This is a well-built mixer with faders (!), a forgiving clip, full-sounding mic pres, sweeping EQ, and two Aux. It's the best I've seen at this price.
