Product Highlights

  • "British" Style 3-Band EQs
  • Free energyXT2.5 Music Software Download
  • Mac, Windows, and Linux Compatible

The XENYX X1832USB - 18-Input USB Audio Mixer with Effects from Behringer is a 18-input audio mixer with an integrated USB computer audio interface. It enables you to mix together and shape the sound of multiple audio signals, and route the audio to several outputs. Special attention has been paid to the quality of the X1832USB's 6 microphone preamps, "British" style EQ, and 6 easy-to-use one knob compressors.

The X1832USB provides six mono channels with inserts and four stereo channels, making it ideal for a wide range of audio tasks. There are three aux sends on every channel (which enable you to route individual channels to stage monitors or external effects). Every channel features a 3-band EQ with a swept mid, which can really help you make vocals and instruments stand out in a mix. The 9-band graphic EQ can be assigned to either the main or monitor outputs, and an FBQ feedback detection function helps to cut down on disturbing feedback. The built-in USB interface allows for a bi-directional transfer of audio to and from your computer. The energyXT2.5 software is compatible with Mac, Windows, and even Linux operating systems, and includes virtual keyboard instruments and drum machines.

The built-in 24-bit dual engine effects processor features 16 presets that include, reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, pitch shifter, and multi-effects. You can edit the parameters of every preset, and a tap tempo button is included to sync time-based effects. The 6 built-in compressors are designed to simplify the process of controlling dynamics in your mix. With a single knob you can dial in the amount of compression you need for any given sound. Individual compressors are a feature rarely seen in mixing boards in this price range. The 6 XENYX preamps offer 130dB of dynamic range, and the 3-band "British" style EQ's really allow you to create a fine-tuned mix. The XENYX X1832USB is well suited for recording studios, video editing suites, live sound mixing, podcasting and more.

          I thought I would be able to switch the headphone source without affecting what is heard through the mains, but that was not the case. Other than that, the mixer is feature packed and has a clean sound.

            I would have loved to keep this mixer but due to the stereo out of the USB connection I have no use for it. Great build and sound quality but only having the ability to record 2 tracks simultaneously is of no use to me.

              Picked up this board last week for an outdoor theater event I was running. I decided to go with this mixer because it has just about everything you need for small to mid sized performances in one portable box: On board compressors, 9 band EQ, effects, sub outs, etc.

              The layout of the board is intuitive and I was able to get up to speed in an hour or so. The sound quality is great - all the channels are clean and the onboard effects are solid! My laptop used to introduce some buzz into the system when it was plugged in and charging, but with this new board I noticed the buzz was dramatically reduced!

              This is the perfect board if you are looking for an affordable, all in one, portable solution for small and mid sized live sound work. It seems the only thing it doesn't have is a built in crossover.

              I would happily buy this board again!

                I've had a little more time with this great mixer and it amazes me a little more every time I use it for another new task. It has all the features, ins/outs that you could want in a small footprint mixer. Another small point is that it is setup and color coded very well for finding your way around very quickly and all knobs are easy to use, even for someone with large hands......still no fumbling.....very accurate in every way!

                  Comments about Behringer XENYX X1832USB - 18-Input USB Audio Mixer with Effects:

                  I've had many boards over my career, even high end recording large format boards, but downsizing to a full featured mixer for submixing to 2488, live work, DJ, etc.....I did a lot of research and was pretty set on Yamaha or Soundcraft, as I was not completely impressed by previous Behringer products. They always worked well, but the sound was never "transparent" enough for my ears.
                  After reading many, many reviews I gave this a try and I'm very impressed with the sound, features, layout, price and build of this little monster. Even the vocal eliminator is useful for karaoke type stuff or practicing songs. The feedback feature is helpful, stereo 9 bands well chosen, channel EQ has proper musical points and semi-parametric mids on mic channels, which makes all the difference when fine tuning a track. Behringer did a great job with the engineering of this whole console at a price point that makes it a "no brainer" if this is the correct layout for your needs. It's great for a solo, duo, or even a trio for smakk club work, even sounds fine for recording tracks.....(the jury is still out on the compressors overall, which was something that was important to have onboard and keeping things simple, yet have control of vocals, etc...
                  Excellent job.....too bad everything has to be made in China to get the prices right. I'd rather see Made in USA, or Germany.....but most everything is outsourced today. I checked all knobs, switches, etc for feel and everything feels consistent......that a good sign. I've only had it a day, so let's see how it holds up and if it I maintain the high marks for this with real world uses. I'll get back later to update this review for pros or cons, but I don't think one can go wrong seriously, especially at this price point. Nothing touches it as far as I can find. It has all the features I was looking for.....every other mixer seemed to have something not quite how I wanted it...this suits my needs to a tee.

                        I have a home video production studio and periodically needed voice over narration. I used an H4 to bring in the mic into my system. It worked well but I had no control over the live recording. In addition, my son started playing the guitar and writing music and was taking my h4 from my studio. I started researching mixers and found the Behringer Xenyx, reviewed specs and figured it would work for my needs, and my son's needs. The price at BH was better than EVERYONE! When I received it, i started "playing" and I am truly happy with it. I will be using this for live event recordings also.
