The XENYX preamps are ideal for studio recording and live purposes, giving you an array of recording possibilities while maintaining the rich sonic qualities needed for professional audio.

Classic British Equalization

British mixing consoles have long been known for their analog warmth and overall quality recordings. Based on these vintage mixing consoles, Behringer have incorporated the same style on the channel EQ. This results in incredibly warm and detailed audio, delivering rich sonic qualities associated with the old British mixing consoles.

Built-In Digital Multi-FX Processor

The X2442USB features a built-in digital Multi-FX Processor designed to offer you an arsenal of premium-grade digital effect presets. A unique feature of the Multi-FX Processor is the time-based functions that can be controlled manually by pressing the tap button in time with the music. The 16 digital effect presets included with the Multi-FX Processor include: delay, chorus, flanger, pitch shifting, reverb and more.

Straight-Forward Recording

Normally recording audio takes up a lot of equipment from computers to cables and audio interfaces in between to process the signals. The X2442USB combats this with its all inclusive functionality, making the recording process simpler than ever, without the need for excess equipment. The built-in, bi-directional stereo USB Audio interface makes connecting your X2442USB to your computer easy and efficient, letting you connect directly to your computer via a single USB cable.

Premium Quality Compressor

Another unique feature of the X2442USB is the premium quality compressor. This transparent compression module delivers the full dynamic range right up until your signal reaches the compression threshold, allowing you to level out and smooth signal peaks. This is perfect for low-level signals and audio with a vast dynamic range, letting you thicken out the sound and accentuate the vital frequencies.
