Live sound engineers know the value of a quality compressor. The Behringer Xenyx X1204USB mixer makes compressing easy, featuring four channels with one-knob compression. Just set your signal levels then adjust the compressor to taste, making signal level management easier than ever. A 24-bit multi-effects processor gives you the power to add professional touches to your mix. Reverb, delay, echo, chorus and more let you add that finishing touch to vocals and mixes.

Flexible routing

The Xenyx X1204USB mixer makes it easy to send your audio to multiple destinations. It's great for setting up custom headphone mixes, for recording in your home studio.

Excellent USB Interface

I received the X1204USB earlier today and just finished using it to create a YouTube live performance. Very happy with the mixer's capabilities.

great board great price

Works perfect, sounds great. I was considering a mackie board with the alt3/4 feature, because I voicetrack multiple radio stations from home. This board has the same feature and the mic pre's are better in my opinion.

Behringer delivers a top quality product at low budget cost

I needed a small mixer for just a couple mics and a stereo input for a keyboard workstation or backing track device. What I got was a studio quality mixer with great pre-amps and a ton of in and out options, excellent FX, and USB connectivity. I can honestly say this mixer can replace just about ANY 2 in/2 out USB interface for recording purposes, and is worth the $$ for just that feature. Yet, look at all the additional good stuff you get,too. The single knob compressors are super great for direct bass and acoustic guitar channel strips, with the added plus of really nice sounding effects. This mixer sounded very good in a live setting, and the 3/4 outputs are excellent for monitors. EZ maneuvering on this mixer, I totally dig it. When I used it as a studio recording interface is when I realized I had a real winner. I was able to set up main pair of monitors, a second for lo-fi mastering for ipod/cheapo listening devices, AND a headphone out. All this for $180?! Thank you, may I have another! The XENYX pre-s seem to sound way better than some in a older Behringer mixer I have, even though the old ones are pretty nice, too. Whatever bit of tweaking Behringer did, it's working. The options for the tape in/out is basic but high quality. The headroom and noise level in this mixer is qualified quiet and clean, highly recommended for pro use. I'm not too fond of on-board effects but the reverbs are VERY useable. Try to find a multi effects unit this good for the price of this whole mixer. The only 'not perfect' feature in this mixer is I wouldn't recommend counting on the channel compressor to handle main vocals. I run a Digitech LIVE-FX vocal strip pedal into my main vocal channel for live use, which by the way, totally rocks. The channel EQ's are top notch, and the faders are smooth and consistent on all channels. I always hate when there is one channel fader that is noticeably different than the rest, and on budget mixers that's a usual thing. NOT this board. Thanks Behringer! Hat's off to Sweetwater and Bob M for making this one of the best purchase experiences ever. I'm a Sweetwater fan for life, no one beats their commitment to service. Bottom line, this mixer is a professional unit, and I would buy another in an instant, without a single reservation. Get one when you can! (That's the hard part)

Pleasantly Surprised

Can't say enough about how impressed I am with this mixer. I've never been a big fan of Behringer products until now. Apparently when they acquired Midas/Clark T., that helped them get it right. This is the most quiet mixer I've owned and also solved my problem with my DAW. Amazing amount of headroom, super smooth faders, very warm EQ, and the effete blow the competition out of the water. I still can't believe how cheap the guys here sold this thing to me.

Great mixer for a small studio

My setup is probably a little different than most, in that I've got tons of music of all kinds genres on an external drive, jam tracks on another, and still want to be able to play guitar and record mixes on the computer. I've come out of thecomputer sound card with an adaptor to rca jacks into the Behringer mixer, then to a 5.1 stereo reciever in the studio through 1/4 jacks to rca apapters on channels one and two. I've also got 2 mics running through the mixer board on channels 3 and 4. I use the mics for vocals occasionally, but most of the time they sit in front of my Crate GT122H Full Stack and the recorded sound is incredible. It picks up the nuances made with the pedal board and you can hear it in the end recording. Then there's the Line 6 Gear Box Gold Edition with the POD software on the computer, my guitar connected to the Gear Box hardware which is connected to a USB port, as well as a 1/4 inch jack to a Blackheart Little Giant tube amp which is driving a Fender 412 Mustang V cabinet. Then 2 monitor speakers and headphones on the mixer board and a separate volume knob on the mixer to adjust the monitors and headphone volume, to hear what's going to be recorded on Ableton Live 8. I know, I'm confused, too. But with all that said, I've still got other options on the sound board I'm not even using. The Behringer X1204USB mixer board does everything I could want in a home studio and then some. As soon as I sit down and read the manual, who knows what I can up with. The mixer has a built in 24 bit multi fx processor, but I've got too many knobs to twist now, I haven't experimented with the fx processor yet. Fantastic board!!!!! Gotta getcha one!
