Mixing console for home recording beginners with small diseases

Matthis G., 02.04.2011
The Xenyx x1204 USB has replaced my old USB interface. Previously I had the Guitar Rig Session USB from Native Instruments. No one from my circle of acquaintances used to use something of Behringer, since one would "save the nerve with the bad equipment / quality". So I received the package somewhat biased.

In reality, I was really surprised by the sound quality. The Behringer Mixer could easily keep up with my previous USB interface, and offers 8 channels more and enough setting possibilities, which can be dispensed with the use of an expensive recording software. I would now like to list some of the "diseases" and describe how to deal with them.

1. Headphone output:
IGITT! So really, there is only ONE regulator of the Phones and the monitor output at once regulates. If you connect your headphones directly to the mixer, you can listen to 12hrs really a nauseating whistle. How to solve? Some monitors have a headphone output. So also mine. Simply connect the monitors to the so-called "Control Room Out", headphones into the output jack of the monitor. Finished. The "Control Room Out" offers a much better signal than the direct "phone out", although it seems to have the same source (a controller). For the headphone out quality, I prefer a star with the sound. For non-separately controllable outputs, -1 star at operation

2. Phantom power
Yes, the mixer provides a 48V phantom power for all 4 micro channels. And no, you only have one button: PhantomPower on / off. This means that if you play with ribbon microphones or other sensitive Mirkos, you should leave your fingers off this mixer. Ribbon microphones can simply scrape when you chase the 48V thereby. If you use, as I do, but insensitive Mirkofonoe (eg the unbreakable Shure sm 58) or simply kondensatormikros (Rode NT1-A) one is well served with this mixer. Whether the dynamic Mirko at the end of the 48V phantom power dissipates or not, is ultimately no preference.
-1 for the features

Mute buttons
Mute actually means something like "mute" or? Well not quite. "Mute" in the Xenyx X1204 USB means in this case: "do not give the main mix but the signal still send to the subgroups" ALT 3-4 ". What is that? If I want to have something I would not want the subgroups! Well as the headline says, suitable for home recording. Then you just pull the fader down if you want to hear nothing.
Nevertheless -1 star at the service.

The processing overall, but seems very solid. The main outputs are on the back (Subgroups Out, Main mix Out, power input). What is a bit annoying, however, is that the switch for the phantom power is on the back. There are metal plates for the 19 '' rack-mounting supplied, I habs not used, but seems to be useful.

So all in all, really useful the thing. For the price you can not expect anything, the whole-or-not-phantom switching is quite forgiven. The driver installation functioned problem-free, but I could not try the included software EnergyXT 2.5. Why? I still have Cubase LE 4 rumfliegen. The programs seem to be very similar.
