Budget no-frills desktop mixer

1. Introduction

I needed a budget desktop mixer (hey, I'm a student) to interconnect many of my audio devices to a single stereo input on the USB audio interface. Ability to quickly connect/disconnect equipment without ruining existing patching was essential aspect. Since all of the post-processing is done on a computer I didn't need a built-in FX processor (as in the similar model Xenyx X1204 USB from the same price category). Like many of you out there I'm always looking out for a good deal on price-vs-features. Behringer has always offered plethora of options and if you are not an audiophile and can accept certain deficit of pro audio equipment shine it will do the job just about as any other pricier brand.

2. Build Quality

Plastic side covers on aluminium body. Plastic knobs and metallic audio connectors. Everything feels solid and it has not yet fallen apart (2+ years later). Mixer feels heavy and sturdy, no complaints here.

3. Features

4 mono/mic + 2 stereo channel strips with 3-band EQ, pre/post AUX sends and pannning. Mic channels have a built-in one-knob compressor (good for live events), gain trim pot and phantom power supply (48v). As usual Behringer offers plenty of ins and outs. 2-track input/output (RCA), built-in USB connection which works as a 2-track (stereo) audio interface, 2x mono AUX sends, 2x stereo AUX returns, headphone output, one subgroup (alt 3-4, all muted channels are sent to subgroup). Master stereo XLR output, 1/4" jack subgroup output (stereo) and 1/4" stereo control room output.

4. Verdict

Like I said in the introduction all I needed was a "central hub" to connect my external gear to stereo USB audio interface. Sound wise it is acceptable (look at the price). Obviously if you avoid maxing out the gain knob and keep your levels loud and clean there is no noticeable distortion and background hissing. I use it with a turntable set, studio microphone, sampler/sequencer and any other occasional gear I come across. There are many scenarios on how to use it and it will fit into most of them really really well. A budget no frills desktop mixer all the way.

Super USB I/O for the budget recorder

This was my second I/O, my Tascam 122 disappearing into the past as they failed to upgrade drivers for Mac OSX. No such issues with the Xenyx. It was plug and play pretty much all the way. Great selection of inputs, which allowed me to set up two microphone channels for voice/guitar, and two inputs for stereo guitar from a Fishman Rare Earth Blend pick up. I recorded over a hundred songs on this kit over an 18 month period before I upgraded to a Focusrite Saffire, mainly to take advantage of Firewire connectivity and higher bit rates. If flexibility and USB connectivity are your requirement, I recommend the Xenyx...great value for money.

Ok little mixer

For the price, this mixer is a good purchase. It has all the functions you expect on a small compact mixer.

The faders and other buttons are typical Behringer quality and have worked well for me. The metering is not all too detailed but is sufficient for a mixer of this size. The USB interface works every time when used on an iMac although I have received drop out on the left channel lately. This could be a problem if this is more than a glitch.

It comes with a select set of software and VSTs on a CD which could be useful for the amateur studio enthusiast.

Compressors on each channel are basic but useful non the less.
