Behringer QX1222USB overview

  • 1Description

The Behringer XENYX QX1222USB - 16-Input USB Audio Mixer with Effects is a 16-input 2/2-bus 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. The mixer features four XENYX microphone preamps with +48V phantom power, British-style channel EQ, a 7-band graphic EQ, four easy-to-use one-knob compressors, a Klark Teknik effects engine with 32 presets, and is compatible with Behringer's 2.4 GHz wireless microphones.

It is suitable for small and medium-sized audio projects. There are two aux sends on every channel (which enable you to route individual channels to stage monitors or external effects), and two stereo aux returns. Every channel features a 3-band British-style EQ with a swept mid, which can really help you make vocals and instruments stand out in a mix. The XPQ 3D stereo surround effect allows you to make a broader stereo image.

The built-in USB interface allows for a bi-directional transfer of audio to and from your computer. The unit comes with recording, editing, and podcasting software for Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems.

The built-in 24-bit dual-engine Klark Teknik FX effects processor features 32 presets that include reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, pitch shifter, multi-effects, and more. You can edit the parameters of every preset, and a tap tempo button is included to sync time-based effects. The four 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. The four XENYX preamps offer 130dB of dynamic range, and the 3-band British-style EQs allow you to finely tune your mix. The mixer is suitable for recording studios, video editing suites, live sound mixing, podcasting, and more.

A collection of music production and podcasting software such as Tracktion 4, Audacity, Podifier, Juice, Podnova, and Golden Ear are available for download from

    Behringer QX1222USB reviews

    XENYX QX1222USB - 16-Input USB Audio Mixer with Effects is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mixer, good price! Hi, I use this mixer for making and performing music. I like how compact and portable it is and the price is great.
    Date published: 2015-02-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mixer I bought the QX 1222USB to replace an old Mackie 1202 which is suffering from scratchy pots. 90% of the time the Behringer acts as a sophisticated switcher channelling multiple computer and TV inputs to an old Bose Acoustimass 2.1 system used for monitoring. It sounds great! I particularly like how easy it is to change inputs via the mute buttons. The other 10% of the time a couple mic channels are used for video voiceovers or instrument recording. After several months of daily use, everything works fine with lots of headroom and little noise. USB recording into Garageband on my MacBook Pro works as expected and without any latency as cautioned in the instructions. Many of the features I haven't used yet - the inserts, surround, voice cancel, etc. The digital effects work but for me they're a novelty. You might find something really useful. The only improvement I would suggest is putting the power switch on top instead of out of sight in back. My old Mackie has the same issue and sometimes I fumble through the wires to only toggle the phantom power switch instead. Regardless, if you need lots of inputs, this is a great choice.
