Behringer X18 overview

  • 1Description

The Behringer X18 - Compact 18-Input Digital iPad/Tablet Mixer is designed for live sound reinforcement and recording applications. The device is designed to sit flat on a surface and features 16 top-facing MIDAS-designed fully programmable microphone preamps via balanced combination Line Level TRS and Microphone XLR-3F connectors, an integrated Wi-Fi module for wireless control from an iPad or tablet, and an 18 x 18 channel bi-directional USB audio interface.

The mixer can be controlled via a free iOS or PC application when connected to an Ethernet, LAN, or Wi-Fi network. Controlling the mixer using a portable device allows you to reference your mix from different listening positions within the venue or studio. The free control app includes four stereo (eight mono) multi-effect processors including delay, chorus, dynamics, 31-band EQ, and simulations of classic analog equipment such as the Lexicon 480L and PCM 80, EMT 250, and Quantec QRS reverbs. The application also includes a 100-band Real Time Analyzer (RTA) for every channel and bus EQ.

The mixer is also capable of sending up to 16 digital sources over CAT5e cable to ULTRANET-compatible devices such as Behringer's P16-M personal monitor mixer for musicians as well as Turbosound iQ loudspeakers for PA applications. Additional I/O include two XLR main outputs, six TRS outputs for auxiliary bus sends, MIDI In, MIDI Out, stereo RCA inputs, stereo RCA outputs, and a headphone output with dedicated level control. You can record your mix via the 18 x 18 USB interface using your digital audio workstation (DAW) of choice. The mixer comes with a copy of Tracktion 4 Audio Production software which provides unlimited track counts, MIDI recording and automation of track dynamics, and support for VST and AU plug-ins.

    Behringer X18 reviews

    X18 - Compact 18-Input Digital iPad/Tablet Mixer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing power in a small package I had to ponder the choice between the x18 and the x18R for quite a while before making my purchase. Both do basically the same thing, but with the x18 you use it on a desktop or work surface as opposed to using it on the floor, rack, or someplace other than your work desk -- that's why I chose the x18. I'm glad I did, because that's how I will use it. The x18 makes an excellent 18 channel USB interface, and would be worth the price if that was all it did. The mic preamps are far better than what you might expect, delivering a clean, uncolored sound that seems unusually present -- especially at this price point. The signal routing flexibility is a big plus, allowing me to output the main signal through the XLR mains as well as through any pair of the 6 TRS aux sends simultaneously -- a big help in my studio monitoring set-up. The onboard effects are also much better than expected, with clean, lush reverbs, and a host of very useful processing for vocals and instruments alike. I have spent some time mixing on the X32, and while I'm not a big fan of their interface, I find that Behringer is providing incredible value for the money in their products. The x18 contains much of what I like about the x32 without the inherent complexity of that platform. The built-in wireless works perfectly in a home set-up (clubs and other areas with crowded Wi-Fi might require a dedicated 5GHz router), and the apps for Mac and iOS are well implemented and very functional. My 11 MacBook Air fits snugly in the tray for the iPad, but because of the design of the side rails does not allow me to connect power or USB unless I elevate the hinge side of the Mac -- a minor disappointment. My only other complaint centers on using some of the effects in a send mode, where the delay introduced in the effect causes phasing problems with the original sound. Using an effect as an insert solves that problem, but you only get to choose 4 of the many included effects at any one time. Having delay compensation on the sends and processing would help get more out of those 4 choices. The iPad interface is actually the best way to operate the x18, as it makes full use of the touch-screen interface. It is also the only way to label the scribble-strips, as the Mac apps don't give you access to that function for now. Overall I am very, very happy with the x18. My band commented immediately on the improvement of our headphone mix when we practice (this was an upgrade from an older MOTU 8-Pre), and the fact that it will work just as well as a live mixer as it does as a recording interface just makes the package an even better buy. It's incredible that we can purchase so much audio technology is such a small, (relatively) inexpensive package. The x18 is worth way more than it costs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME This unit is unbelievable! The sound quality is absolutely top notch. Very classy and great build quality too. The functions of this unit must be experienced to be believed. No more dirty pots or knobs to clean and all setting can be saved in the unit and on the device controlling it! Up to 64 individual settings groups can be stored in the unit itself. The effects engine in this board is crazy good with pretty much any effect you will ever need. You also get a full license for Tracktion 6, an incredible DAW package for recording all channels at once and then mixing down to your master. I could not be happier. I purchased one for our church and was so impressed, I bought another for myself! Behringer has hit a home run with this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mixer This mixer works great. Great sound, easy to understand menus. The manual is a little short on explaining the info that it presents, but the mixer is easy to enough use. (This is my first digital mixer.) For what this mixer provides, you just cannot beat it at this price point. I would definitely recommend it.
