A Complete 20-channel Live Mixing Rig to Go!

If you're in charge of setting up full-scale sound in small- to medium-sized temporary locations, then the Peavey XR 1220 is a perfect powered mixer for you. First and foremost is the XR 1220's layout - a traditional mixing console format that's easy to operate for hours on end. But despite its less-compact form, the XR 1220 isn't unnecessarily bulky or heavy. In fact, thanks to revolutionary new Class D power amplifier technology, the XR 1220 weighs only about 25 lbs. What did Peavey leave out? Not a thing! Not only does the XR 1220 provide you with dual 600-watt outputs and a full 20 channels of input, but it also includes extra features and functions designed to make live mixing easier.

Each of the XR 1220's 20 channels includes a microphone preamp with an XLR input, and there are also stereo line-level inputs on the last two channels. That's easily enough input channels to handle a full-sized band. Dual monitor sends as well as an effects send with built-in effects all have their own dedicated faders, which makes on-the-fly adjustments a snap. The EQ section is where things get even cooler. Each of the XR 1220's mono channels (channels 1-18) features a 4-band EQ with Peavey's Mid-morph function. EQing the midrange is the bane of many live engineers, which is what makes Mid-morph an incredibly useful function. Instead of cutting or boosting one frequency range, Mid-morph does both, adjusting the ratio of the high mids to the low mids. Turn it clockwise (up) and vocals become much more intelligible; turn it counterclockwise (down) and you instantly tame the harshness from overheads, amps, and brass.

The XR 1220 also gives you a pair of 9-band graphic EQs. Even though you can make EQ adjustments manually, you're far from limited by your ears alone. Plug in an RTA microphone; you can instantly tune each amplifier to accommodate for the frequency response of the room. But that's not all. The XR 1220 also features Peavey's Feedback Ferret technology - a real lifesaver in just about any less-than-ideal environment. Plus, five different power amp modes (including a fully active subwoofer crossover) let you set up your system to best suit the room in the first place. Together, all of these great features mean you can leave behind your rack full of power amps, graphic EQs, crossovers, and feedback suppressors - the Peavey XR 1220 takes care of everything!

Digital Mixers

I sing in a Southern Gospel Quartet and we purchased a 16 Channel so when we found out how awesome these mixers were, we purchased a 20 channel. This is a great mixer. It has auto or manual EQ settings, a feedback ferret which helps to eliminate feedback.It also has a lot of different effects and also lets you create your own effects which it stores into the effects under user (U1, U2, etc.) it also has its own Poer Amp so you can take the heavy outdated amp out of your rack.

Two Wonderful Mixers XR 1220 and 24FX II

We have had the Peavey XR 1220 powered mixer in our Church for about three weeks now and it is doing great. I installed a Peavey 24FX II non-powered mixer in the Church we use to go to and it did great also. The XR 1220 is simpler to use so is easy to train a new sound man or women. The feedback ferret and auto EQ works very well and is easy to set up. The 24FX II has record to USB stick, upgradable programing and many other advanced features that make it wonderful for a sound man with a higher skill level. Jon Kremple at Sweetwater has been wonderful to work with on both mixers.


The Xr 1220 has simplified setting up sound; and eliminated one complete effects rack and has plenty of power to run almost any room. My favorite feature is the sub out; with my EV eliminator 18’s and one power amp nu3000 we get more bottom end and don’t have to worry about losing power in our mains. My 13 year old grandson has easily learned to run this board. This has to be one of the best investments I have made in years. Most of the gigs we setup are outside for around 1150 listeners and we have no complaints. Yes it even does great in smaller venues. I would recommend this board for any application including installs. Small to medium bands will love the ease of use this mixer will give them.

With the guidance of my Sweetwater Sales engineer, we covered everything that this Peavey mixer would do for my application at church. He spent a lot the time with me looking up information and answering my questions to make sure that it was the mixer for our needs. Keith was spot on. It is perfect and performs just like he told me it would. We are extremely satisfied with the sound in our building and on the DVD video's that we make for the local TV company. We appreciate the great service that we have received from Sweetwater.

Mixing board for dummies (and eveyone else)

I bought this for my basement studio mainly. I have a yamaha MG series unpowered, and not being a soundman/engineer, just found it too complicated to get good sound (don't get me wrong, it is an excellent board also and will run my mains and this one will cover monitors live, but then there will be a soundman. For now it was just beyond my level of knowledge). This board is a godsend. If you search peavey powered mixers on youtube, there are 2 videos (part 1 and 2) showing you in 15 minutes how to use every feature of this and there are many. It takes the guess work and need for alot of technical knowledge out and allows even me to get a good sound. (I'm sure if out in the hands of an expert it would be even better). Other than plugging it in and hooking in the speakers and mics, it about does everything else for you at the push of a button. From the filters cutting unwanted lows, to the auto eq'ing and ESPECIALLY the feedback ferret. ( I've heard people say it just lowers the sound quality...etc.... and maybe it does for an expert. But it certainly gives better sound quality than speaker damaging, ear drum popping feedback. Which without it and me operating a board your sure to get). The other reviewer was right, about the effects just being adequete..... not great, but ok (that could also be my skill level. lol) but even having said that this board is still straight up 5 stars. The power is great, it takes up way less space than my other board on the table, and allowed me to pack up my rack amps leaving more space in my not oversized studio. You really can't go wrong with this. Technology is great isn't it!!! BUY it!! Oh, and just mentioning, I've made probably a half dozen purchases from Sweetwater over the past few years, and they realy seem like a great company to deal with. Comapnies that actually give personal service and care about the indiviual customer have become hard to come by these days. Sweetwater seems to be one of the few.
