Behringer X18 XAIR Digital Mixer

The X18 is a powerhouse 18 input/12 bus digital mixer that also serves as the launch pad for your favorite computer tablet -- including iPad and Android tablets. It is ideally suited for both live and studio applications, thanks to its 16 award-winning MIDAS-designed mic preamps, convenient integrated Wifi module for wireless control -- and a lightning-fast, bidirectional USB Audio Interface.

The freedom to move around and manipulate all parameters of your mix with the free iOS, Android and PC apps lets you dial in the perfect sound from anywhere in the venue -- or the tracking room! Advanced engineering and meticulous design deliver stellar sonic performance at an extremely affordable price -- changing the game once again.

MIDAS -- The Legend in Sound Quality

Ever since its formation in the 1970s, MIDAS has had a long history of innovation and leadership in the world of audio mixing consoles. Employed by the most famous touring acts and installations worldwide, legendary MIDAS consoles such as the XL4 and Heritage H3000 quickly became industry standards.

MIDAS has earned their impeccable reputation due to their no-compromise approach for audio and build quality and in particular for their award-winning Mic Preamps which are considered by industry experts as the industry's best sounding designs. Building on this legacy, the XL8 and PRO Series of Live Mixing Systems continue this great heritage of award-winning audio quality.

Behringer is proud to incorporate MIDAS designed mic preamps for the ultimate in high quality audio reproduction in both live and studio environments. Find out more about MIDAS-- amazing legacy by visiting their extensive website.

Built-In Tri-Mode Wifi Router

Designed for the ultimate in mobility, the X18 comes with an integrated Wifi module for direct control of your mixer's functions -- without the need to setup and configure an external router. The X18 gives you the freedom to focus on your mix, while allowing you to move about the venue to experience what every part of the audience is hearing. Plus you can adjust live monitor wedges from the artist's perspective -- or better yet, let them mix their own IEMs and floor monitors via their own tablets.

Access Point is the easiest way to connect up to 4 clients directly and concurrently (i.e., iPad, Android smartphone/tablet or laptop). This mode should have your remote control up and running in less than a minute.
Wifi Client allows you to add your mixer to the existing wireless network where the controlling apps and devices are connected.
Alternately, wired connections can be made directly to your PC, to a local area network (LAN), or when connecting to a dedicated Wifi router, e.g., for extended range or 5 GHz applications.

Recording Simplified

The incredibly fast and comprehensive 18 x 18 channel, bi-directional USB interface makes the X18 an amazingly powerful digital mixing solution for recording directly to your iPad or PC. Dial in the perfect monitoring mix with effects and zero-latency, while sending up to 16 microphone signals -- and the keyboard player's MIDI notes to your DAW for recording.

Whether you-'e making rock history in the studio, or you want to capture intimate live performances -- it's never been easier to record stunning tracks with exceptional clarity.

Revolutionary Auto-Mixing

When your application calls for a multiple-microphone setup, such as an onstage panel discussion, press conference or courtroom proceeding, etc., it can become a challenge to maintain so many open mics -- and preserve maximum gain and priority for the moderator.

A major first for compact audio mixers, our revolutionary X AIR Gain Sharing technology can easily manage fully automated mixes with up to 16 live microphones. Based on the legendary Dan Dugan automix system, the X18's gain sharing paradigm automatically controls the levels of all selected microphones in real time, without any gating artifacts or noise modulation.

This function dramatically reduces the typical feedback, studio noise and comb filtering challenges that can occur when two, or more mics are in close proximity of each another. X AIR Gain Sharing technology provides a consistent system gain structure, even when multiple speakers are talking at the same time.

4 Onboard X32 Effects Engines

Equipped with the very same FX engines as the now legendary X32 Digital Mixing Console, the Onboard virtual FX Rack provides access to four true-stereo (8 mono), multi-effects processors including delay, chorus, dynamics -- plus the X18 can run production-quality, true-stereo reverbs concurrently with 31-band EQ on the main and aux buses, all without the need for any additional hardware.

You can select any combination of high-end simulations of legendary studio effects, such as the Lexicon 480L and PCM70, as well as the EMT250 and Quantec QRS reverbs. Onboard processing means your computer doesn't have to do the heavy lifting during a mixing session with DAW plugins as the X18 has a whole studio of FX under its hood.

Custom-designed, and physically modeled after some of the most iconic and sough tafter processors, all effects run inside the low-latency environment of the X18 mix engine, ensuring flawless performance, flexible routing and the end of cable faults forever!

100-Band RTA for all Channel/ Bus EQ's

The X18 includes a high-resolution 100-band Real Time Analyzer (RTA), with full Bar and Spectrograph views. This high-resolution RTA displays the audio energy distribution in 100 frequency bands over time -- capturing a sonogram window of a full 10 seconds.

Switch between the Large RTA view, displaying any available signal in full screen resolution, or the Combined RTA view shown above each of the channel and bus EQ curves -- and see the results of your filtering choices. Additionally, the RTA can be displayed on top of the 31-band graphic EQs in the Main LR or Aux buses. Monitoring and controlling frequencies has never been easier!

16 Channels of Personal Monitoring

The easy way to send sound, our ULTRANET connectivity allows you to send 16 digital sources over a lightweight and easy-to-deploy Cat 5 cable to P16-D Digital ULTRANET Distributors, or directly to P16-M Personal Monitor Mixers. This powerful and advanced technology makes it easy for individual performers to create their own "more me" mix -- and frees you up to put on your best show. ULTRANET also provides the perfect conduit for sending your mix to the new TURBOSOUND iQ Series loudspeakers, which can tap into the 16-channel digital bus directly.

Launch Pad for Every Platform

While the tablet mixers made by our competitors only work with iOS-compatible tablets, the X18 is an equal-opportunity launch pad for your dreams thanks to its ultra-wide tray that accepts PC/Mac*/Linux* mini-notebooks and tablets, Android* devices -- and yes, even iPads of all sizes. By using an internal Wifi router and a suite of ultra user-friendly dedicated apps, the X18 is the one tablet mixer on the market that accommodates the world's most popular operating systems!

Uncompromised Channel Processing

The X18 allows you to achieve the same incredible level of EQ finesse as the award-winning X32 thanks to its 100-band Real Time Analyzer, which is built into every input channel and bus EQ. Visual feedback built into the control app allows you to see and make fast, surgical adjustments to frequencies in need of a boost or a cut. You'll wonder how you ever EQ'd without it!

Every input channel also features Low-Cut, 4-band fully parametric EQ and the same Gate and Compressor dynamics suite found in the X32 -- with one very special addition; you can choose either Expert or Simple functionality. In Expert mode, you can drill down and get your hands on every nuance of your dynamics. Or, if you're more of the "plug and play" type, Simple mode lets you either select from one of our 4 carefully-optimized presets -- or load your own channel templates. Add to this 40-Bit, floating-point DSP and you'll experience virtually unlimited dynamic range with no internal overload and near-zero overall latency.

In addition to the Main L/R bus for Front of House, 6 Aux buses are provided for dialing in the perfect monitor mixes, complete with inserts, dynamics, and either a 6-band parametric EQ or 31-band graphic EQ. And if all these outstanding EQ options put a smile on your face, you'll love it even more when we tell you that 100-band RTAs are available for these, too!

MIDI In/Out for Live Performance Controllers

The physical MIDI I/O port on the X18 mixer can also be used for connecting external MIDI controllers, such as our X-TOUCH or B-CONTROL products, for dynamically controlling channel level, muting and panorama adjustments during your performance. And since the full-featured X18 also supports the Mackie Control protocol, you easily apply comprehensive remote editing and parameter adjustments via any compatible MIDI devices.

Dedicated Apps and Software -- All Platforms Covered
Since we realize that one size doesn't always fit all, we went the extra mile and provided apps for all the most popular devices and operating systems. So we engaged dedicated (and highly caffeinated) development teams for our iOS*, Android*, PC/Mac* and Linux* based applications for the X18 mixer. When you download an X18 app for your OS, you can rest assured that you will get the fully optimized experience we intended.

X AIR EDIT (PC/Mac/Linux)

If your application requires a computer for Behringer X AIR mixer remote control, the X AIR EDIT was made just for you. Simply copy and launch the free software with your computer, connect to the mixer via its built-in Ethernet (LAN) connector using a Cat 5 cable (max. 100 m length) -- and all X AIR mixer functions are instantly mirrored on your computer screen. Since your PC screen is larger than the one on your telephone, X AIR EDIT allows you to open and scale more app windows, such as for routing or FX editing -- letting you decide how much information you need at a glance. All touch screens are supported, or you can use a mouse to adjust your physical mixer--s settings. You can even control multiple mixers remotely from a single computer, or create several strategically placed computer stations to control the same mixer. With X AIR EDIT, your PC, Linux or Mac computer becomes your virtual mixer -- both live and in the studio.

X AIR for iPad

Front of House is wherever you and your iPad are -- thanks to the new X AIR app for iPad. Simply download the free app to your iPad, set the Behringer X AIR mixer to Access Point mode and connect your iPad to the X18 network that will show up. After launching the X AIR app, select the mixer image, and all of your X AIR mixer--s settings can now be adjusted directly from your iPad. You can save your favorite scenes, and load previously stored scenes and presets to/from your iPad or customize your channel layout -- all with the support of innovative drag "n" drop functionality.

X AIR for Android

Designed specifically for all Android mobile devices (4.0 or higher), which includes tablets and smartphones, the app can be used in one of two modes: full access mixing mode; or bound to a specific aux bus for creating personal monitor mixes remotely on BEHRINGER X AIR mixers. Using this free and easy to learn app, each performer can use their Android device to dial-in the perfect personal IEM or wedge monitor mix, without having to consult the audio engineer for assistance. With the X AIR App for Android, personal monitor mixing just got a whole lot more personal -- both live and in the studio! But it doesn't stop there -- in full access mixing mode, the app provides control over all channel processing including the RTA overlay, effects editing, storing/loading scenes or presets, and much more -- whether you're running a 12" tablet or a 5" smartphone.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Worth the learning curve"
Overall: This is my first sand alone ALL digital mixer so I have nothing previous to compare it to. Having said that my only warning to anyone looking at this is there is a relatively steep learning curve. There is a USB port for multi track recording to a computer or iPad, but the audio signal path is access ONLY thru wifi on a computer, iPad or Android device. Getting past the wifi connection, the depth of control is massive and can be overwhelming. Every channel has built in phantom power if needed, a gate, compressor, EQ, Level, Panning and 4 Aux sends. On a physical mixer, this amount of knobs can look intimidating, and in the digital world it can be equally so. Getting past the complexity, the main reason for this device is the amount of channels and the quality of the sound. For the price, I don't think anything touches the number of inputs and the quality of the preamps is far greater than the price would suggest. The channels sound clear and clean with no noise even at high gain levels. There are a lot of videos online that give tutorials on how to use this beast and be prepared to watch them as mixer has very little included documentation. But that's what the internet is for right? There is a better manual/web page online as well. It may not be simple, but it a great piece of gear and except for the complexity, I can't imagine anyone being unhappy with this mixer's quality and flexibility. 16 input channels (all individually record accessible), 6 physical aux sends, dozens of effects for delay, reverb, compressor, eq, overdrive, leslie speaker and more, midi and USB connectivity.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Amazing mixer"
Overall: I have been doing a lot of recording with this board. The quality of the recording is just as good or better than the Allen & Heath board I've been using in the studio. The preamps in this board are nothing short of amazing. It is loaded with lots of very useful effects. Reverb, delay, chorus, compression, EQ, etc. All of the effects are very high quality. The reverb is especially good. Very natural and rich. It takes some patients to get it linked with the computer. Be prepared to use a cable to hook up the first time. You will mosr likely need to update the firmware and download usb drivers from Behringer. This is all easy to do and only takes a few minutes. The PC app is great. Very intuitive. The Android app is also very good. Not as user friendly as the pc app but makes mixing on the fly easy. I prefer the pc app for detail work like fine tuning effects. Overall, this mixer sounds better than any I've used. I own a Mackie and a peavey. I've used Yamaha, Allen & Heath and other Behringer boards. The only one I've used that sounds as good as this one is the Behringer x32.
