Sonically Superior Preamps

All Behringer Xenyx mixers have one thing in common; great-sounding, high headroom Xenyx mic preamps. These state-of-the-art mic preamps are a tremendous step in the evolution of audio technology - and they can easily hold their own, even when compared to expensive, boutique-style 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. As a result, Xenyx mixers provide such transparent, crystal-clear performance that you just might think someone upgraded your microphones 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 Behringer's Xenyx mixers are based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to imbue signals with incredible warmth and detailed musical character. Even when applied generously, these equalisers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.

Studio-Quality Compressor

The QX1222USB's studio-grade compressor is based on classic and famous studio equipment from the 70's. This totally transparent and musical design allows your full dynamic range to shine through until your signal reaches the compression threshold, which is then indicated by the highly-visible status LED. The compressor increases sustain and gently smooths out signal peaks, which results in an output level that lets you unleash powerful and well defined sound while still sitting right where you need to be within the overall mix.

Klark Teknik FX

Nothing adds the finishing touch to a live or recorded performance like really good effects, so Behringer equipped a select group of the Xenyx mixers with one of the best FX engines in the industry. Designed by the world-renowned KLARK TEKNIK engineering team, these high-end FX processors feature an extensive range of studio-grade presets with selectable parameters, Tap function and storable user settings. Complete with a dedicated level meter, these effects provide a wide range of enhancement options, from sweet and mild to absolutely wild.
