Behringer Q502USB overview

  • 1Description

The Behringer XENYX Q502USB is a mixer that offers clear and natural sound in a compact and portable format. With five inputs, one high-quality XENYX mic preamp, and a USB interface, this mixer is ideal for a variety of mix and recording applications, from small-stage gigs to home-studios, limited-size corporate events, and more.

The XENYX Q502USB is quick to set up and operate with all connections and controls easily reachable on the top of the unit. The first input channel features a XENYX mic preamp, which delivers 130 dB of dynamic range, low-distortion signal, and a wide frequency response extending from 10 Hz to 200 kHz. Switchable 48V phantom power allows you to plug in both dynamic and studio-grade condenser microphones.

The channel also offers a 1/4" input for a line-level signal, a British-style, 2-band EQ to provide warm and musical tone corrections for your vocals and instruments, and an easy-to-use, "one-knob" compressor to gently smooth out signal peaks for punchy and present bass lines, drums, and vocals. A gain knob let you adjust the input level and a clip LED alerts you when the signal is too high and about to distort. Dedicated knobs set the mix level and pan position. The two sets of stereo inputs each feature pan (or balance) and level controls.

The XENYX Q502USB is equipped with a stereo USB audio interface for recording your mix directly to a computer. Along with it comes the recording and editing software needed to turn your computer system into a home recording studio. The 2-Track section provides an easy way to connect an external 2-track recorder and/or playback device. The 2-Track inputs are assignable to either the main mix or to the phones outputs. Dedicated knobs adjust the volume for the main mix and phones outputs.

    Behringer Q502USB reviews

    Xenyx Q502USB Premium 5-Input 2-Bus Mixer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 21st Century Replacement for Shure M267 This is the most massively useful mixer I have bought in decades! We run radio and TV remote sports broadcasts. Since the 1980's we have sworn by the old M257 for the fact that it has a compressor to keep the levels steady, even when the announcer gets excited during a scoring play. The Behringer Xenix Q502USB takes it to the next level for the new century. The rarely found audio compressor is there to keep the announcer levels within bounds AND we can now play out our commercials and interviews from the encoding laptop through the USB connection! Fewer cables to connect. Also, when he goes to a commercial break there is only one knob to turn down, then click the file to play the spot. So easy even a jock can do it!Amazing!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adequate I bought this unit for my son to use with an SM58 mic (it provides 48V phantom power) for multitrack recording on a computer. It also makes it easier for him to switch between instruments. Haven't had any issues at all. Was plug and play on OSX and Linux. Seems sturdy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laptop to Hall PA it's great Running USB out from a laptop to our PA system is the best it's sounded in years. Lisa was a great help working out the solution.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our needs We use this as a bridge to input audio from our laptop USB into the PA system in our hall. Works great.
