Description

The Behringer Xenyx X1204USB is a multifunction, affordable mixer that provides 4 mono channels with premium XENYX mic preamps, neo-classic 3-band British-style EQ and 2 stereo input channels. Far from being a "bare-bones" mixer, all mono channels feature Behringer's "one knob" studio-grade compressor and 2 Aux Sends (one each pre- and post-fader). 2 stereo Aux Returns are included for use with external FX modules. The built-in USB audio interface provides bi-directional transfer of signals between the mixer and computer.

The Behringer XENYX USB mixer is designed to handle your live gigs, and it provides the state-of-the-art tools you need to make stunning, professional-quality recordings. Along with the 12-channel mixer's built-in USB/audio interfaces, the XENYX USB mixer comes with all the recording and editing software you'll need to turn your computer system into a complete, high-performance home recording studio.

Sonically Superior Mic Preamps

The 12-channel Behringer XENYX USB mixers have one thing in common great-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 standalone mic preamps. XENYX preamps offer a staggering 130dB of dynamic range, with a bandwidth that extends from below 10Hz to well above 200kHz. Armed with these outstanding mic preamps, XENYX USB 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 mixing 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 the Behringer XENYX X1204USB mixer 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? 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. Behringer's "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 Behringer XENYX USB mixers.

Recording Bliss

There was a time when the recording process called for lots and lots of expensive audio 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 mixing consoles 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

  1. Excellent mixer Review by vleann
    Rating

    Small, yet powerful the Behringer XENYX X1204USB 12 Channel USB Mixer is an excellent choice for conferences. with the USB connection you can control anything your pc can throw at it with the ease of 1 control.

    Yes, I know this sounds like a commercial, but it is the best mixer I have found comparable to price and size, I was pleasantly suprised at the ease of use, and high quality. Was looking mainly to replace a worn mixer with something cheap, what i got was cheap in price and excellent in quality!! I am very pleased! (Posted on 11/15/11)

  2. Good and Bad Review by Lebron
    Rating

    I'm new to the music recording scene so I figured I would buy cheap and upgrade as I need. Unfortunately the user guide for this tool is terrible and in another language. Any kind of support through the web is non-existent. I'm pretty much just testing each dial to see what it does. Great price for such features - but hard to figure out how to use it.
