Maximum Mixer Functionality for Minimal Bucks!

With the Behringer XENYX X2222USB mixer, you get 8 XENYX microphone preamps, complete with one-knob compressors, for running live gigs and studio sessions. With the built-in stereo USB interface, you'll be ready to send audio to and from your computer and DAW. You've also got 24-bit digital FX processing on the XENYX X2222USB for adding color and sweetening to the mix, right from the board. And you get all this for a very budget-friendly price.

Solid Preamps Onboard

The Behringer XENYX X2222USB employs eight XENYX mic channels with inserts and high-headroom preamps. The XENYX preamps themselves offer 130 dB of dynamic range, with a bandwidth that extends goes well below 10 Hz. The sound on these preamps is cool and transparent, and will do justice to whatever mics or instrument you're running through them. Each of the first 8 channels has a dedicated one-knob compressor, a 3-band EQ with semi-parametric mids, and three Aux Sends. There are also four stereo line-level channels, and two convenient mix subgroups. What more could you need?

24-bit FX Processing

The XENYX mixers also features Behringer's proprietary 24-bit dual-engine FX processor. This puts the power of 16 editable, studio-grade FX presets right in your hands. From the FX section on the right side of the board, you can add Reverb, Chorus, Flanger, Delay, a Pitch Shifter and/or Multi-effects. To tweak the presets, simple use the flexible Parameter control to dial up the sound you're looking for. There is also a super-essential Tap button for putting time-based FX in tempo with the music.

USB Plug-and-Play

The built-in, bi-directional stereo USB audio interface allows you to connect this mixer directly to your PC or Mac computer via a single USB cable. How simple is that?

Software Bundle Included

The Behringer XENYX X2222USB mixer comes with a sweet software package that includes Audacity, Podifier, Juice, Podnova and Golden Ear software. It also comes with more than 100 virtual instruments and 50 FX plug-ins for you to play with. You can use all of these in conjunction with Behringer's own TRACKTION 4 recording software. This decidedly simple software puts all its functionality on a single-screen interface, without endless drop-down menus. It also offers an unlimited number of tracks and slots for plug-ins, with the only real limitation being your computer's processing power.

With the Behringer X2222USB mixer, a USB cable and your computer running the included software, you'll have a solid toolkit for recording, editing and mixing -- all for a nice price.

Product Description

How about eight XENYX mic channels with inserts, dedicated compressors, 3-band EQ with semi-parametric mids and three Aux Sends? You get all that with the X2222USB, plus four stereo line-level channels, two convenient mix subgroups and onboard 24-bit digital FX processing, with dual user-addressable parameter controls. All this and more enclosed in a rack-ready, roadworthy steel chassis.

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. Along with their built-in USB/audio interfaces, XENYX USB mixers come with all the recording and editing software you'll need to turn your computer system into a complete, high-performance home recording studio.

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 our 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? We're glad you asked. 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. Our "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. Which brings us to software...

Free Would Be Nice!

Because you'll want to take full advantage of the XENYX USB Series mixers' recording and podcasting potential, we've 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.

Value

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "I own it....I reviewed it"
Overall: Ive had this mixer for about 2 weeks, i love the looks of it, and it is completely functional with plenty of inputs & outputs that you might need. The manual however, lacks something to be desired. Not everyone is a sound engineer, so for those of us who have limited knowledge of inserts, subgroups and so on..not to mention the various combinations of buttons that need to be pressed or left alone...the instructions came up short. I did manage to learn most of it simply by trial and error....something i don't normally like to do. So far I am very happy with it, Behringer helps those of us that don't have serious bank to continue with serious music.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Perfect addition "
Overall: Perfect addition for a home studio. I like being able to record from the mixers usb directly into my computer. Just go to the Behringer website and download the free audio driver so your recording software will recognize it, I'm using Magix recording software. On the Behringer website hompage: click on support, then click drivers, then click on USB audio driver that has your operating system listed then download and you're ready to go, Now you can use whatever Mic you want along with instruments, you name it, very versatile. Great for a studio on a budget.
Style of Music: Rock, Metal, blues, hip hop, country, Christian. And putting a combo of all music types into one new one
