Very good

Anona, 09.05.2013
The Soundcraft EFX-8 is a robustly constructed and therefore relatively heavy mixer. The potentiometers and jacks do not make a superior impression compared to more expensive consoles, but they do their job and you should put this in relation to the possibilities and the price.

The console first looks like a standard set-up, which one knows from the other manufacturers. 2 aux-paths, 3-band EQ, built-in effects unit, etc., but there are a few small, nice extras and special features that show that Soundcraft has not only imitated - one thinks of a well-known German billiard maker - Meaningful features.
The first thing I notice is the tunable mids in the EQ of all micro inputs. In addition, a Mute AND a PFL function per channel. The insert in the master area is not self-evident in this price class, but of course very useful. In addition to the main-out (XLR), there is also a so-called monitor-out (jack), which has its own volume potentiometer. Very helpful!
An additional mono-main-out and a built-in power supply are not found in all consoles of this class.

But now one of the highlights of the desk: the Lexicon effect device.
You can edit it, save your own settings and control the setting points when turning the corresponding potentiometer by lighting up LEDs. So it is very practical to use. Delay and the modulation possibilities (Chorus etc.) I have not tried yet, but the Hall is - also here again: measured at the price - very good. I previously had a console of a well-known American manufacturer whose name begins with "M". The integrated effect section did not earn its name in comparison to the EFX-8. It sounded as if a bit crusher was permanently at work.

Last point:
I use the console as a sub-mixer for keyboards, but I've also connected microphones and was very impressed with the practical input sensitivity. I always have enough reserves and do not get too fast in clipping. Also this point is not self-evident, as I had to learn at the said American console, where I got low-level keyboardsignals hardly at a reasonable level.

Regarding "sound" one should actually be in the evaluation of mixing consonants, because they are not "sound". I have the impression that the EFX-8 veheads the signals quite neutrally and that the EQs work well and practice-oriented.

So all in all: a very recommendable console for live and demo applications.

Great sound and easy handling for the small gig

HelmutD, 04.11.2009
The Soundcraft EFX 8 is the solution for smaller gigs. With 8 monocanals and 2 stereo channels it is quite sufficient for the recording of drums, guitar, bass, keyboard plus up to 4 singing microphones.

Also conceivable as a sub-mixer for drums in larger performances. Even for inexperienced people at the mixing console, the routing possibilities open up after a brief introduction and the meaning of the "beautiful colorful buttons", at least rudimentarily. However, the color coding proves itself also in practice, since it gives a good clarity.
The highlight of this unit is, without a doubt, the integrated Lexicon Hall unit with variable parameters. Also again a chunk less to be dragged along ...

The sound control of the monocanals has parametric mids and is thus also an excellent sound tool. Very useful is also the PFL function, with which you can listen to each channel separately with the headphone also during the performance.

The processing looks professional and the metal case makes a very robust impression.
The on / off switch is somewhat unfortunate under the device. Therefore, it is a little difficult to achieve when the console is installed in a rack case.
