The XR12 acknowledges the reality of modern live mixing — that you don't want to be tied down to a fixed front-of-house mix location.

You're Connected

Ethernet port gives you networking options

The XR12's built-in Wi-Fi has you covered for most venues, but if you've got big stadium gigs booked, you'll be glad to know that you can easily integrate the XR12 into a larger setup using its Ethernet port to connect to a wired network or a monster router.

  • Ethernet port for networking options
  • Connect to a wired network

Great-sounding Mixes Start Here

Pristine preamps, ultra-wide dynamic range, and more

With four Midas-designed mic preamps and 40-bit floating-point DSP that delivers virtually unlimited dynamic range with no internal overload and vanishingly low latency, the XR12 delivers impeccable sound quality — the same as Behringer's acclaimed X32 digital mixer. The XR12's preamps are fully gain-programmable and remote-controllable from your iOS or Android tablet, for nearly unlimited flexibility in a live show situation. And because applications are loaded to the specific device, you can, for instance, prepare your channel layout offline while sitting in the tour bus before a show.

  • Acclaimed X32 technology for impeccable sound quality
  • Fully gain-programmable, remote-controllable preamps
  • Applications loaded to specific device
  • Facilitates offline pre-production

Comprehensive Processing and Routing

Features that will make you a sound-mixing hero

With so many variables beyond a mixer's control, Sweetwater knows just how challenging mixing a live show can be. That's why Behringer designed the XR12 with smart features that can make you a sound-mixing hero. The XR12's channels are fully loaded, with per-channel low-cut filters, gates, full dynamics (including compression, limiting, expansion, ducking, sidechaining, and more), fully parametric 4-band EQ, and routing to the two aux outputs. When it comes to EQ, the XR12 lets you analyze the frequency content of your tracks to perfection, courtesy of its 100-band Real Time Analyzer, built into every input channel and then sculpt them with the bus equalizer. With visual feedback built right into the control app, you can see exactly what you need to do, and make fast, surgical adjustments to frequencies that need a boost or cut.

  • Smart features make mixing easier
  • Extensive per-channel processing
  • 100-band Real Time Analyzer
  • Visual feedback simplifies EQ

Studio-quality Effects

Virtual FX Rack with four true-stereo multi-effects processors

The XR12 has an entire arsenal of effects under the hood. The virtual FX Rack gives you four true-stereo (8 mono) multi-effects processors, including delay, chorus, and dynamics. This engine is beefy enough to simultaneously run high-quality, true-stereo reverbs and 31-band EQ, without the need for additional hardware. Select any combination of high-end simulations of classic studio reverbs such as the Lexicon 480L and PCM70, the EMT250, or Quantec QRS. The XR12's onboard processing means your computer won't be tasked with additional heavy lifting during a mixdown session with numerous plug-ins.

  • Four stereo multi-effects processors
  • Simulations of legendary studio reverbs
  • Robust FX engine
  • Lightens the load on your computer

XR-12 Great Small Mixer

I really love this mixer. I am currently using it for a band that plays Worship Music in small venues, and we can run the whole band with this board. If I were doing it again, I would have bought the XR-16, just for the added preamps and busses. I am running 4 vocal mics on Channels 1-4, I am running 2 mics with xlr to 1/4" cables for drums, just one kick and one overhead, 2 mics with xlr to 1/4" to mic guitar amps, and I am using the hi-z inputs for a Bass and Acoustic Guitar. I am using powered mains off of the xlr outputs and 2 monitor mixes out to a stereo amp, and 4 passive monitors. I use a little reverb on the vocal mics and acoustic guitar, and the tube preamp effect on the electric guitar mics. I am very impressed with the sound. We have a Roland Digital Board at the Church, feeding QSC amps and a Danley Line Array, and honestly get a very comparable sound out of this system.

This is probably the most versatile stage box on the market today.You won't find another brand with the features and versatility anywhere close to this price point. The sound is excellent and the set up is simple. Enough said.

X12 Does it all

I bought the xr12 to replace my 12 channel macike mixer. It is less then a third of the size and has built in effects are amazing the only thing missing is some overdrive or distortion settings, the learning curve was a little steep but after a few pain steaking hours Ive figured out how to operate it. Really like the IOS interface, looks really professional and keeps the wires out of the way. At $299 this thing is an amazing value. Get it you wont regret it,

Behringer Rocks!

All I can say....awesome product from Behringer.

Light weight mixer

I used this XR12 X Air on a gig for the first time and its simplicity to mix, add effects, aux sends just blew me away. Plus the ability to usb record the gig is mind blowing. The wi-fi control with my iPad makes me smile. I can't wait to play our next gig. By the way our singers make their own mix with a second iPad which makes my job easy. Wow how amazing. The sound quality is great also.
