Behringer QX2442USB overview

  • 1Description

The Behringer XENYX QX2442USB is a versatile 24-channel mixer equally well suited for sound-reinforcement applications and project recording studios. It employs ten, high-quality XENYX mic preamps to deliver a clear and natural sound with 130 dB of dynamic range, low distortion, and a wide frequency response extending from 10 Hz to 200 kHz. British-style, 3-band EQs provide warm and musical tone corrections for your vocals and instruments, while easy-to-use, "one-knob" compressors gently smooth out signal peaks for punchy and present bass lines, drums, and vocals that sit right in the mix.

The XENYX QX2442USB is packed with powerful features for getting the job done no matter the situation. Should your singer prefer the convenience of performing without a mic cable, the mixer is wireless-ready with a USB jack on the top panel for connecting the Behringer ULM digital wireless microphone system (available separately). The onboard multi-effect processor brings you the legendary Klark Teknik reverb effect as well as chorus, flange, delay, and pitch-shift, all great for adding depth and dimension to your mix. There is also a built-in, stereo USB audio interface for recording your mix directly to a computer, at audio resolutions up to at 16-bit/48 kHz. It even comes with the recording and editing software needed to turn your computer system into a complete home recording studio.

A set of flexible routing and monitoring options makes it easy to integrate the XENYX QX2442USB into your existing set up. The mixer offers four aux sends per channel for sending signals to the FX processor or out of the console to other gear. It also comes with four stereo subgroups with separate outputs, channel inserts, direct outputs, eight aux returns, and more. The main outputs carry the signal on both XLR and 1/4" TRS balanced connectors, while the control room outputs are on two 1/4" TRS balanced connectors.

Other features include clip LEDs to help you set the correct mic levels, mute and solo buttons, main-mix and subgroup routing switches, and PFL functions on all channels. Designed to withstand the rigors of live gigs, the QX2442USB is built with long-wearing, 60mm logarithmic-taper faders and sealed rotary controls. There is even a lamp socket to connect a gooseneck lamp when working in low-light environments.
