Behringer X1204USB overview

  • 1Description

The XENYX X1204USB - 12-Input USB Audio Mixer with Effects 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 X1204USB's 4 microphone preamps, "British" style EQ, and 4 easy-to-use one-knob compressors.

The X1204USB 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 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 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 X1204USB is well-suited for recording studios, video editing suites, live sound mixing, podcasting, and more.

    Behringer X1204USB reviews

    XENYX X1204USB - 12-Input USB Audio Mixer with Effects is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 63.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Features for your Dollar This is the only 4 buss mixer with effects you will find for your money. I bought two of them to use as an 8 buss mixer to my stand alone 24 track 8 input audio recorder. A great clean sounding mixer I use for keyboards, acoustic guitar and routing external effects. The compressor worked well when bringing down the dynamics of a digital piano. I have always been happy with the performance of Behringer, just not the dependability, this is my 4th Behringer mixer, the first 3 failed, this is Behringer's last chance with me. If failure occurs again I will be replacing with Mackie. (purchased Makie's first 16 channel mixer back in the 90's, functioned well for over a decade.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice unit I bought the Behringer Xenix X1204 USB mixer as the center of my podcasting operation. I specifically wanted this unit so that I could do live telephone conversations with my cell phone piped through the unit. It's excellent for this application! My biggest complaint is that the documentation is a bit thin and meant for those who already have experience with audio mixing equipment. However, research on the net and through YouTube I was able to learn useful things about this unit. If you are going to get serious about podcasting I highly recommend getting this mixer!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Features I wanted at great price I use the X1024 for live mixing and home studio recording with 2 mics, V drum kit, acoustic guitar & bass, and keyboard. It's compact, well built, easy/intuitive to use, had it up and running in <5 minutes. Mic preamps work great. Effects are adequate for live stuff, not studio quality, I us it to add chorus to vocals or chorus/reverb/flanger to acoustic guitar. Single track USB output and 4 mic channels are a limitation, but you can't have everything at this price. I like that it uses IEC cable and has a 120-240V compatible power supply so I can travel with it. Overall very good value for money.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thumbs Down I bought this mixer to handle the audio for my internet broadcast (audio & video). I've owned a USB mixer before and like the fact that it handles both the Line In and Main Out to/from the PC... except... that doesn't work on this mixer. Audio makes it to the mixer from the PC, but it stops there. No audio produced by the PC (videos, music, etc) get returned to the PC. We'll see how Behringer Tech Support responds. It will determine whether I buy any other Behringer product again in the future. If no joy, then this little guy goes back.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very interesting but I have problems The table is quite interesting, is compact, lightweight, full-featured. However, I have trouble understanding how the effects work and how to connect with your computer. The instruction manual is not the best, which forced me to look in the youtube demo videos. Even so I do not understand how to apply the effects. To get the drives installation I have also found difficulty in the site. To be honest I still can not install anything and connect the mixer to the computer. I'm waiting for help from friends. I believe it is a great mixer but for those who do not know, there is a lack of information to operate the device.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great small mixer I use the XENYX X1204USB as a mixer to input for my Canon XA10 video camera. As the record mix is different than the house mix, I use output from selected channel inserts on a Eurodesk MX 3282A as inputs to this board. This board has all the functions of the larger Eurodesk and more. I had been using a small board that had all rotary controls and no mute buttons. I especially vaule the slide controls on this board along with the mutes. The mutes allow me to do a sound check prior to the event and then when the event starts I can select the selected channels at the correct levels without having to turn a rotary switch and then remember what the correct setting is!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mixer for the price This mixer has a lot of features for one in its price range. It has special effects and a USB interface that works with your pc or mac for recording or monitoring. It also comes with 19 rack adaptors. All the controls are smooth and the build quality is excellent. I am using this with vocopro wireless mics and a Hercules DJ controller all driving a Behringer 3000 watt amp for Karaoke. All are mounted in a 10U portable gator case, making a very light weight portable Karaoke setup. It all works quite well with a laptop and two Yamaha S115V club speakers. The X1204USB is the perfect complement for my setup.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from RCA-In throgh USB interface doesn't work Well... After a week of playing with it I figured out that my brand new x1204 usb doesn't record playing devices hooked up to RCA inputs (2Track Input) through the USB interface! It mixes it great though and sound is not that bad... However, when I try to record any mix it records everything except any RCA hookups! What the...?! User manuals with their hookup diagrams written terrible and some tags were outdated, for instance mentioned in owner's manual CD/Tape switch doesn't exist! There is 2TR/USB instead! Why should I guess?! I began thinking of replacement or even return... ((( Some pros at the end: it's built solid and I like quality of the unit assembly. FXs are mediocre, but doable for home studio purposes. It is definitely good for the price if you don't have defective unit as suspiciously I have. I actually have already placed a question to Behringer support about it and will see what they answer...
