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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Which brings us to software

Because you'll want to take full advantage of the XENYX USB Series mixers recording and podcasting potential, weve thrown in a massive software package that includes Audacity (the most popular open source audio editor), Podifier, Juice, Podnova and Golden Ear (a great selection of podcasting software). You're ready to go live on your PC or Mac computer right out of the box! You also get more than 100 virtual instruments and 50 FX plug-ins, turning your computer into a complete home-based or mobile recording studio from input to output.

Fantastic value for the dollar. The greatest set back is the background noise when recording over USB. With a good amount of tinkering you can work it out where tolerance is found. I switched from USB to using my sound card in using the Rca outputs. I found the sound quality was better. If you are recording one instrument at a time use the solo button on your mixer (less background hiss). All in all it is a complete bargain price for what you get in return. With a little MacGyver work you will find it works fluidly. I almost forgot to mention... the signal pre-amps are solid!

Can't really go wrong here. I really like the reverb and compressors on this little mixer. For this price, you can't expect super quiet circuitry, but with a little patience I have found that I am able to make very high quality, low noise recordings. Couldn't be happier for $200!

Well, it's no Allen and Heath, but it will sure get the job done. I use this mixer for front of house for small events, and as an overflow/monitor mixer for larger ones. Way more features than anything else in this price range, smooth faders, clear sound, and solid construction. The sound quality is super, but you can see that these are made cheaply. It's not top of the line, but you can't get anything that is even close to as good as this mixer for under 200 dollars.

I bought this mixer to try recording using the USB interface. Next thing I know, I've added powered speakers and have a PA. Lots of features in a small mixer!
