Behringer 1204USB Overview

  • 1Description

The XENYX 1204USB - 12-Input USB Audio Mixer from Behringer is a 12-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 1204USB's 4 microphone preamps, "British" style EQ, and 4 easy-to-use one-knob compressors.

The 1204USB provides four mono channels and two stereo channels, making it ideal for smaller jobs. There are two aux sends on each mono channel (which enable you to route individual channels to stage monitors or external effects), and two stereo aux returns. The built-in USB interface allows for a bi-directional transfer of audio to and from your computer.

The 4 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 4 XENYX preamps offer 130 dB of dynamic range, and the 3-band "British" style EQs really allow you to create a fine-tuned mix. The XENYX 1204USB is well-suited for recording studios, video editing suites, live sound mixing, podcasting, and more.

    Behringer 1204USB Reviews

    XENYX 1204USB - 12-Input USB Audio Mixer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I still can not believe how good it is I got this mixer, for times when I have a small band's who play on the stages were the main sound board, does not have a sight line to the stage, but I also now use it as a stage mixer for samplers, key boards, sound effect units and drum kits (for the compressors. I am getting way more use out of this than I ever thought I would. I know some bands have bought this after seeing how good it is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behringer 1204 I wish I would have owned this thing when I played in my former band. Now I use it for recording. It's all a small band needs, and for the money, there's no beating it. Originally I was going to do some scratch recording with a line in directly into my computer's soundcard, but I have Windows 7 and was experiencing a problem with latency and feedback. I tried several other USB interfaces and found this one to be the best by far. The other company I was dealing with was quite annoyed by me buying products and returning them repeatedly because I wasn't satisfied. Once I found this one, they were glad to get rid of me, and I was glad I didn't have to go back. This thing does exactly what it's supposed to do, route sound. There's no hissing, no feedback, and it works perfectly. The other reviewers were talking about how it was difficult to use and how the software wasn't great. First off, if you've ever dealt with a mixer, this one is no different except for the red button that routes the sound through the usb interface. Secondly, I would never use this software for recording anyway. It might be ok, but I never tried it. Bottom line, it does what it's supposed to do, there's no lag, no feedback, no white noise, and it has a great price. P.S. One reviewer said it had great effects. This unit does NOT have effects. If you want effects, the Behringer 1204fx is what you need to get, however most recording software comes with plenty of effects.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic mixer for small use i bought this unit to have a small recording session within my apartment. i didn't want to spend a fortune while looking for the most bang for the buck. i considered other brands but for what this mixer offers, no other brands came close. i mean, this thing is set for anything you want in a small setting. of course, i should have gone with the built-in effects unit but i dont have any regrets. recordings come out extremely clear, compressions work great, and everything is so straight forward. i didnt have enough time to fiddle around with it too much but so far, it has been excellent.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hardware good - Software is horrible! The hardware is good. The energy xt 2.5 software is geared toward engineers, and needs to e written for dummies like first time users of equipment. It took a week for me to figure out my equipment and the software. Their manuals are horribe because they fail to tell dummies like me: STEP's how to hook up the machine. STEP TWO...Here's how to make sure you get an input signal. STEP this.... THey give an overview of their products, which is horrible. Glad I didn't spend thousands on equipment - it might take months to figure it all out. John Tyler

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with the purchase I purchased this mixer to be used in podcasting. It does a whole lot more than I need it to do, but I purchased this one because if I wanted to expand my use of it I could do so without having to grade to a different mixer. I'm really pleased with it - seems like it is decently constructed and is easy to use. I would say that if you are a newcomer to audio mixers this shouldnt be your first purchase but if you are a pro or at least familiar with mixers then this would be a soild buy without breaking the bank.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I've been using this mixer for about a month now to record my band. We use a DAW called Reaper, and it works really well with the software. The one thing That I would really like out of it is for each channel to send separately to the DAW instead of just sending the Main Mix. But it's ok, we've still been able to do our recording.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Lot To Learn but worth IT! First, I am a novice at mixing and this unit is about semi-pro musicians, so I am a little lost. If you are new then this unit is a big learning experience, so be prepared to test you're PC and electronic intelligence or get something simpler. For the money it was great, it does all the stuff I could want, effects, multi inputs, and so on. And Behringer is a great product. One warning! If you are hoping to power a small group then you will also need either powered speakers or a power head and speakers to get decent sound. It will power your mics OK but nothing more, though I did get my pre-amped guitar through it. Now I am micing my guitar amp and running it through the mixer , into my power head and out my studio monitors and the sound is great.
