All XENYX mixers have one thing in commongreat-sounding, high headroom XENYX mic preamps. These state-of-the-art mic pres represent a major step in the evolution of audio technology and they can easily hold their own, even when compared to the most expensive stand-alone mic preamps. XENYX preamps offer a staggering 130 dB of dynamic range, with a bandwidth that extends from below 10 Hz to well above 200 kHz. Armed with these outstanding mic preamps, XENYX mixers provide such transparent, crystal-clear performance you just might think someone upgraded your mics while you weren't looking.

Sublimely Musical British EQ
The British consoles of the 1960s and 70s changed the sound of rock and roll without them the British Invasion might not have happened. Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world. The channel EQ on our XENYX mixers is based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to imbue signals with incredible warmth and detailed musical character. Even when applied generously, these equalizers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.

One-Knob Compression
Ask professional sound engineers what their favorite piece of external processing gear is and the majority response will be virtually unanimous dynamic compression. What is compression? Were glad you asked. Compression essentially limits the dynamic range of a signal, lowering the level of loud sounds and turning up softer sounds, to achieve sonic balance. But applying compression is a delicate art that many novice, and even intermediate, sound techs have great difficulty mastering. Our one-knob compression is available on all mono channels and is easy to operate, even for entry-level users. With this one knob, you can easily dial in the perfect amount of compression for instruments and vocals, creating powerful mixes with punch and clarity. This is indeed a rare feature for products in this class but standard on all XENYX USB mixers.

Effective FX
All XENYX USB Series mixers (except the 1204USB) feature our new 24-bit dual engine FX processor, with 16 editable, studio-grade presets including reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, pitch shifter and multi-effects. Complete with a highly accurate input meter, these effects can be altered to your personal taste via the Parameter control. Time-based functions can be entered manually by pressing the Tap button in tempo with the music.


Recording Bliss
There was a time when the recording process called for lots and lots of expensive gear, which meant the average musician had to buy time at a recording studio and that time was pricey indeed. But modern technology has put personal recording well within the reach of virtually anyone with access to a computer. How do you get all that music flying around your brain into your computer? That's where XENYX USB mixers come in. Thanks to the built-in, bi-directional stereo USB audio interface, you can connect any of these mixers directly to your PC or Mac computer via a single USB cable. Now any signal source you connect to the mixer can be recorded directly to your hard drive.

Although this mixer has great functionality as a live board, for the purpose of multitrack recording it is almost completely useless. Despite having many mic and line inputs, it mixes everything down to two mono tracks or one stereo track upon leaving the mixer via USB. This begs the question as to why they bothered with the USB feature. I gave all ratings a 5 simply because it sounds good and is reliable enough, but only if you want to use it as a live board. For multitrack recording, spend the extra money and get something that keeps the inputs segregated upon entering your DAW.

I bought this mixer back in March, and haven't had any problems at all with it to date. I hear a lot of people bash on Behringer for being cheap and "you get what you pay for", but that's not the case at all with this board. It's an incredible deal for a board with so many features, including built-in effects, 4 subgroups, and 4 aux sends. It has incredibly clear sound, too. I've used it for recording some excellent selling CDs, and live shows and concerts as well, all without problems. The only con against it that I can think of is that it only has 1/4" AUX sends, but with adapters it's an easy fix. Get this board.
