Soundcraft / Spirit EPM 8 - 8 Mono + 2 Stereo Channel Recording and Live Sound Audio Console
The Soundcraft EPM series provide 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 provide everything necessary for use in project recording, video editing, night clubs, bars, meeting halls, houses-of-worship and more.
