Product Description

The X1222USB is a step up from the X1204USB with six mono mic inputs. These two additional channels can also be used for stereo line-level devices, such as keyboards or sound modules. The X1222USB also comes equipped with channel Inserts for inputs 1-4, a stereo 7-band graphic EQ, which can be assigned to the main or monitor buses, and the proprietary FBQ Feedback Detection System. Other features include full-sized faders for MON and FX SENDs, the XPQ 3D stereo surround effect (creates a broader, enhanced stereo image), and a handy Voice Canceller function for removing vocals from pre-recorded tapes and CDs for "instant-karaoke" applications.

XENYX USB Series mixers are designed to handle your live gigs, and they provide the state-of-the-art tools you need to make stunning, professional-quality recordings.

Sonically Superior Mic Preamps

All XENYX mixers have one thing in common--great-sounding, high headroom XENYX mic preamps. These state-of-the-art mic pres represent a major step in the evolution of audio technology--and they can easily hold their own, even when compared to the most expensive stand-alone mic preamps. XENYX preamps offer a staggering 130 dB of dynamic range, with a bandwidth that extends from below 10 Hz to well above 200 kHz. Armed with these outstanding mic preamps, XENYX mixers provide such transparent, crystal-clear performance you just might think someone upgraded your mics while you weren't looking.

Sublimely Musical British EQ

The British consoles of the 1960s and '70s changed the sound of rock and roll--without them the British Invasion might not have happened. Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world. The channel EQ on the XENYX mixers is based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to imbue signals with incredible warmth and detailed musical character. Even when applied generously, these equalizers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.

One-Knob Compression

Ask professional sound engineers what their favorite piece of external processing gear is and the majority response will be virtually unanimous--dynamic compression. What is compression? Compression essentially limits the dynamic range of a signal, lowering the level of loud sounds and turning up softer sounds, to achieve sonic balance. But applying compression is a delicate art that many novice, and even intermediate, sound techs have great difficulty mastering. The "one-knob" compression is available on all mono channels and is easy to operate, even for entry-level users. With this one knob, you can easily dial in the perfect amount of compression for instruments and vocals, creating powerful mixes with punch and clarity. This is indeed a rare feature for products in this class--but standard on all XENYX USB mixers.

Effective FX

All XENYX USB Series mixers (except the 1204USB) feature the 24-bit dual engine FX processor, with 16 editable, studio-grade presets including reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, pitch shifter and multi-effects. Complete with a highly accurate input meter, these effects can be altered to your personal taste via the Parameter control. Time-based functions can be entered manually by pressing the Tap button in tempo with the music.

Recording Bliss

There was a time when the recording process called for lots and lots of expensive gear, which meant the average musician had to buy time at a recording studio--and that time was pricey indeed. But modern technology has put personal recording well within the reach of virtually anyone with access to a computer. How do you get all that music flying around your brain into your computer? That's where XENYX USB mixers come in. Thanks to the built-in, bi-directional stereo USB audio interface, you can connect any of these mixers directly to your PC or Mac computer via a single USB cable. Now any signal source you connect to the mixer can be recorded directly to your hard drive.

Free Would Be Nice

Because you'll want to take full advantage of the XENYX USB Series mixers' recording and podcasting potential, Behringer has thrown in a massive software package that includes Audacity (the most popular open source audio editor), Podifier, Juice, Podnova and Golden Ear (a great selection of podcasting software). You're ready to go live on your PC or Mac computer right out of the box! You also get more than 100 virtual instruments and 50 FX plug-ins, turning your computer into a complete home-based or mobile recording studio from input to output.

EnergyXT2.5 Compact Behringer Edition Included

When you're ready to take your recording projects to the next level, XT Software's energyXT is just the trick. This amazing DAW (digital audio workstation) makes it easy to manipulate your audio and MIDI files, turning song ideas into stunning CD or Web-ready recordings. energyXT includes its own multi-FX processor, plus a built-in synthesizer/sampler and a drum machine, both of which can be accessed directly via an external controller (such as the UMA25S) or programmed in step-write mode.

"Fully featured mixer at a great price!"
Sound: This mixer is brilliant! I am able to record on my pc with no latency using the inbuilt 16 bit 48kHz USB sound card . I now use the desk as the main recording source for any instrument with ease and combined with the inbuilt effects some very professional sounds can be easily achieved. Effectively your pc can be used without a sound card with this mixer as the sound can be redirected back via the USB return. At this stage I do not use this mixer for live gigs but I can tell there would be no issues. Feature: The mixer has inbuilt effects and effect send/ return that can be sent to any channel. A good compressor is built into each channel. Phantom power is available for any mics that need it. There is only one thing I miss - no solo buttons on each channel, but for the standard of features this mixer has I can overlook this. A Behringer ASIO driver is supplied but I use ASIO4.DLL with no issues so far. Ease of Use: The controls on the desk are simple to use (even for a novice) It may take a little while to figure out how to set up effect parameters as the instruction manual isn't clear on this, but again it isn't difficult. Quality: The desk is well constructed and attractive with good quality connectors, knobs and faders. The main mix send has gold tipped male XLR connectors. As long as the unit is stored in a road case for transportation it should fair up as well as any other desk for live work. Value: Great value for the features. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had personal experience with Behringer yet but a close friend of mine has and he has nothing but praise for the efficient way his mixing desk was quickly replaced ( 3 days) when a fault was detected in it. The Wow Factor: It's a very tidy looking mixer, not too large so it fits well in a home situation. Overall: This mixer has all the features I require for my home recording and for what I payed for it I am very satisfied. I chose Behringer under recommendation from a friend who owns a complete Behringer PA system and loves it.

Thank you. Your vote has been counted. Could you briefly tell us why the review was or was not helpful?

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good unit for the price I paid."
Sound: First of all, the product works as expected. There is noise at very high gain settings, but it pretty quiet below about 75% of the gain range on any given segment of the mixer. Used mostly with phantom powered mics and direct boxes with great results. I thought it was noisier, but it turned out to be some poorly made XLR cables. Feature: Unbalanced 1/4" Main outs would have been nice, but it works great with XLR balanced line outs...and cheap adapters are readily available. Bought this for USB track recording for roughly the same price as a 2 channel XLR in/out USB dongle of the same quality. Ease of Use: The mixer was very easy for me, but for someone not used to mixers, a more detailed manual would have been great. Also confusing is that the manual covers two mixer models. Quality: Fit and finish are very good. I wouldn't take it on the road without a hardcase or a rack box around it (brackets come with the product for rack mounting). Value: Yes, at 50% of MSRP or less, it's well worth it. The Wow Factor: It just works and has a reasonable layout...but it's a generic hunk of gear that does it's job. Overall: Hope to use it for the next 4 or 5 years...currently I would replace it with the same unit and the same cost.
