Great-sounding mic pres

The Behringer Xenyx UFX1204 is fitted with great-sounding, high headroom Xenyx mic preamps. These cutting-edge pres can hold their own against preamps in consoles costing considerably more then the UFX1204. You get a jaw-dropping 130dB of dynamic range, and a ginormous bandwidth extending from the subsonic to dog frequencies. Add to that a 4-band British-flavored EQ and you're ready to rock. You'll have a newfound respect for your mics when they're plugged into the UFX1204.

Sound-sculpting features

Live sound engineers know the value of a quality compressor. The Behringer Xenyx UFX1204 mixer makes compressing easy, featuring four channels, each with one-knob compression. Just set your signal levels, then adjust the compressor to taste, making signal-level management easier than ever.

FANTASTIC, Solidly Featured Mixer

I bought this mixer as an upgrade to the Mackie ProFX8 - I found the 2-track recording on the Mackie limiting at times. I debated whether to keep the Mackie and get a separate multitrack recording interface, but them I came across this mixer. I was more than impressed by it's true multitrack recording capability in both USB and FireWire formats, and for the recording input / price ratio, it just can't be beat. The mixer is loaded with features seldom found on mixers of this size, let alone price point (I'm a HUGE fan of the LED metering per channel - it's been super helpful to reference levels from and almost always is only found on larger format mixers). I also love all of the routing options, with the ability to bring back 4 tracks from my DAW either into the last 2 channels, or straight into the main mix. The sound quality is top notch, super clean and detailed both for recording and playback. Perhaps one of the most impressive features of the mixer for me was the quality of the preamps - they ROCK! I couldn't believe how deliciously quiet they were and how clean they sound. These pre's will make any microphone or source sound fantastic. Overall the build quality is very good, I never feel that any part of the mixer is particularly fragile, and all the knobs have a good-feeling smooth resistance to them. I also like the separate indicators (red and yellow respectively) for Mute and Solo on each channel, one thing that's somewhat bothered me about Behringer mixers in the past. Though there is a lack of detailed documentation / manuals to explain the more obscure features of the mixer (like the quirky Alt 3-4 "subgroup"), the support people at Behringer are extremely helpful and will answer any questions about the features of the mixer. One thing I noticed, though not a bad thing per se, is that at least for my set up, the UFX1204 doesn't play nicely with the ASIO4ALL driver that I use for other interfaces I have. In my DAW, I need to exclusively use the proprietary Behringer UFX driver to get this board to work. So I can only use this board and no other interfaces, or my other interfaces and not this board. Not a big deal for me, but something to note. Also, Maybe it's just my particular setup / computer, but I could not get the FireWire connection to work on my PC. FW works great on my Mac, but not on my PC. Overall I think this mixer is an absolutely wonderful product and I couldn't be happier with it so far. Definitely worth every penny. If you're looking for a fully featured small format true multitrack recording mixer, this is the ticket.

Nice piece

I've just started using this for my voice overs video traing and it works great. I've only used to the system connected to Soundbooth with no complaints. The sound quality is just what I need. I had a little issue getting the recorded sound to come back through the headphones. There is limited information in the manual; however I called Sweetwater support and bam a few buttons later I was ready to go.

Great mixer for a GREAT price.

I really like this mixer. Behringer has stepped up their game recently, and here, they made an awesome product. There's so much functionality at a low price-point, you just can't beat it! I had purchased a Mackie Pro-FX12 -- I returned it to try this one out. The mackie is also a great mixer, but I was looking for something that would be have multi-track simultaneous recording via USB. An added perk on this board is FireWire connectivity. I specifically like that one can send audio from an input (for instance, a laptop) via USB to the mixer and listen that way. I have the mixer hooked up to my studio monitors and it sounds great. I think the main difference between this board and Mackie would be build quality. I find the Behringer to be of good quality, but the Mackie just felt sturdier to me (just my opinion). Behringer looks great, sounds great, and does everything I need it to. If you're looking for something simple that operates as a mixer and allows multi-track recording, this is a great option. Don't hesitate to buy this!

Very flexible mixer/interface

Very quiet Pre's, I've recorded using Firewire, USB and an external hard drive with very good results. It will record up to 15 tracks individually with some configuration using AUX returns sent to track 13 and 15/16. Kind of tricky, but functional. One thing I don't like is the Pre/Post buttons on tracks switch just the EQ to Pre/Post. All FW/USB routing is pre-fader, pre-pan. Problem with that is, you can't balance (pan) L-R stereo channels when recording. So, if left channel is overloading and the right channel is a low signal, sweeping Pan control has no affect on levels to L or R side of stereo input. Having the Pre/Post switch is nice, but it would have been nice to place the 'Post' setting to be post fader/EQ/pan so you can control the L-R balance on stereo channels. Otherwise, it's pretty darn cool little mixer. We did a 15 channel recording at church, taking direct outs off Soundcraft console, and recorded to Logic Pro. Worked great accept for stereo inputs being out of balance level-wise. Made some adjustments on source console, but it would have been nice to be able to adjust directly on this console. Unfortunately, the user guides are very basic and semi-informative.
