Did sound for a southern gospel group, using a yorkville powered mixer. Not familiar with your mixer, but, on the Yorkville I had an unused 1/4" line level output with the monitor mix on it. I bought a cigar-sized, 3-channel headphone amplifier / splitter from Radio Shack, called a Boosteroo. Has 1/8" stereo plug that I adapted to the mono output, with a 1/8" stereo to 1/4" mono adaptor. It receives the line level (monitor in our case) signal and supports up to qty 3 - 1/8" plug headphones. Battery operated. No volume control, so I added an inline dial (rheostat) volume control cable. Can't pull up on Radio Shack, now, but, found it available, elsewhere, online. Worked great for me!
Good Luck SdDude

How to hook up bose b1 module into yamaha emx 5000


The Bose B1 bass module is designed to handle up to 125 watts into 8 ohms 40-200 Hz.
The Yamaha EMX 5000 is full 500 watts, and full range. This is not a particularly good match.

How to Set up Auxiliaries on a Mixer.


Here are some tips to set up the auxiliaries properly on your mixer:
  • Step1:
Your auxiliaries allow you to send the signal from a channel strip to somewhere else while maintaining the signal on the channel strip. For instance, you can use auxiliaries for monitor mixes for performers in a live environment. You can also use auxiliaries for external effects processors or a number of different situations.
  • Step2:
Set the auxiliaries to pre-fader to allow you to change the level for the auxiliary with the auxiliary knob but not with the channel fader. Most mixers have a "Pre" button that allows you to enable pre-fader mode. If you don't have the button pressed, your auxiliaries are in post-fader mode, which means your channel fader will affect the signal level of the auxiliary output. For monitor mixes, you usually want to use pre-fader so you can control monitor mixes independently from the front of house mix. Some effects processors will be better to run post-fader, though, so don't always rely on pre-fader.
  • Step3:
Send out your auxiliary sends. On the back of your board, you there are the auxiliary outputs. For a monitor mix, you will use these outputs to connect to the inputs of the monitors. When using an effects processor, you will use the auxiliary output to connect to the input of the effects processor.
  • Step4:
Plug in a return if necessary. If you are just doing monitors, you do not need returns to the mixer. When using effects processors though, you need a way to get your effected signal back to your mixer. Take the output of the effects processor and connect that to the return input on the back of the mixer. Now you will have to adjust the return section on your channel strip to get the desired signal.
  • Step5:
Use the auxiliary knob to set the desired level. Once you know if you are running pre- or post-fader, and you have your inputs and outputs all correct, you can start sending signal to your auxiliary output. Turn up the auxiliary knob until either your monitors are set correctly or until you have the desired amount of signal going to your effects processor or other outboard equipment.

Can I connect only one speaker to a yamaha emx 312 sc power mixer?


First it is certain that you would not want to plug both outputs of the stereo power amp into one speaker combining both channels into the same speaker. (see image from manual below - also link to manual)

Next I would be very concerned about only using the one side of the main amp out as it could cause an unbalanced load, or you could be driving the load into dead air connection and any of these conditions are destined to cause premature failure of the power amp.

Taking a quick scan of the manual for this unit, it appears what is pretty common to most powered mixers, hook up two matched speakers/loads to each chanel of the output.

Your best bet is to shed those monster cabs, there really is no need for them especially with this sized powered mixer, and get yourself a nice pair of full range cabs like EV1202;s, EV SX300's, or some nice 2 or 3 way 15" JBL's/

Just my opinon.

Monitors not working on Yamaha EMX512SC, worked once added a keyboard,now we can't get them to work.


Do you mean there is no sound coming from your monitors? Check whether you've accidentally diverted the main-mix signal from main-out (or whatever you have your monitors plugged into). Can you get a headphone mix?Also, dumb question, check that nothing is soloed!

Aux1 and 2 are not working...what is the fix on the emx5016cf yamaha board


You are NOT trying to drive speakers from the aux outputs are you? These are LINE outputs that should be using TRS balanced lines to either powered speakers or amplifiers. Often these are used for monitors. The monitoors MUST be powered versions or use external amplifier if the speakers are passive..

The speaker connected to my Yamaha EMX 312 SC is not bringing out any sound when we use the microphones but the displays on the power mix shows there is activity.


Assuming that you have checked the speaker leads for broken connections and that you know the speakers themselves work okay (test with a different amp) and that you can hear sound on the headphone socket
  1. Check that you actually have the power amp switch in the right position for the outputs (monitor jacks or main neutrik/speakon sockets) that you are using (see page 25 of the manual)
  2. That your speakers are connected to the speaker outlets on the rear panel and not the 'main outputs' on the front panel, which are for use with a separate power amplifier
  3. Check the mute button is not in
  4. You have turned both the master volume controls up.
If none of the above solves the problem it is likely that the overload protection fuses on the amplifier output stage have blown and need replacing - take to a repairer

I have a st69 and every time I record, the vocals while recording sound very chorus like in the headphones, but they sound fine when I listen to the play back, please help.


Check the mixer settings to be sure you are not sending multiple mixes or effects to the monitor (headphone) output. The output used for recording does not necessarily have the identical sound sources and mixing path as the headphone, so make sure the headphone is monitoring the same signal as the recording output.

Mixing headphone levels


More important than your keyboard for this question is the mixer you are using.

Put the metronome on a channel and only pot it up in an Aux send. Set up the mix for your phones using that same aux send. Use the main outs for PA.

That would be one way to do it. The idea is, you want to set up a mix for you, and a separate mix for everyone else. Mixers are capable of having several different mixes sent on their various outputs, so pick one to use for your headphones, and use a different set of outputs for the other mix.

A mixer does exactly that. It mixes. If you think of a graph, the X side would be your inputs, the Y side is your outputs. You can mix different versions of X at each Y.

Your powered mixer does but the model number doesn't match any Yamaha models. Double-check and look for the manual at Yamaha's website. It probably the 300 or the 512.
