Rackmountable Mixer -- Perfect for Portable PA Rigs!
The Peavey XR1212 powered mixer is an excellent rack-mountable mixing console, complete with 12 balanced XLR input channels. Each channel comes with its own 4-band EQ, while the board comes with a dual 9-band master EQ that's handy for tuning your live PA system. And when it comes to driving that PA system, the XR1220 powered mixer utilizes Peavey's very own 4-ohm Class D amplifiers, capable of delivering an impressive 600 watts of clean, clear sound to each stereo channel.
At just 22 pounds, this Peavey powered mixer can replace a traditional mixer, outboard effects racks, and power amps -- and save your back in the process. Just add cables and speakers, and you've got a PA!
Straightforward I/O For Any Live or Studio Application
The layout of the Peavey XR1212 mixer is set up to give you 5 primary ways of using its outputs: Left & Right; Left & Right with Subwoofer; Main & Monitor; Main & Monitor with Subwoofer; and Monitor 1 and Monitor 2. There are 2 monitor sends, 1 EFX send, a Pan pot, and PFL and Mute switches.
The XR1212 comes with a few unique features that set it apart from similar rackmount mixers:
4-Band EQ -- Plus Peavey's Mid-Morph Control
The 4-band EQ on each of the XR1212's channels comes with a knob control that engages Peavey's proprietary Mid-Morph technology. You'll find this knob fun to play with, as it redistributes midrange frequencies for a different overall sound depending on the situation. When you turn the Mid-Morph knob to the left, it cuts 2 kHz from the mids to reduce harshness in vocals and other instruments. When you turn it to the right, you get a boost around 4 kHz, which can help bring vocals and other lead instruments more to the forefront.
Onboard Effects for the Real World
The XR1212 also boasts highly usable digital FX. Sweeten your sound with Reverb, Delay, Parallel Reverb + Delay, Tap Delay, and Chorus. Each of these has numerous presets, all easily accessible from the FX section of the console. User Parameters on each effect allow you to set reverb time, delay feedback, and more.
Feedback Ferret: The Live Sound Engineer's Best Friend
The XR1212's Feedback Ferret technology utilizes complex, intelligent filtering algorithms identify and duck frequencies that would be potentially unpleasant in performance. They notch down almost instantaneously, eliminating feedback before it can form. The algorithm continuously scans for these frequencies and then releases the filters when the feedback has ceased.
Auto EQ: Tune the Room with Real-Time Analysis
The Peavey XR1212's Auto EQ feature makes setting up compatible RTA microphones super-easy, by performing two tests on the input signal. The first test silently pushes the whole system into feedback and then scans for the most commonly troublesome frequencies and then de-attenuates them back at normal dynamic range. The second test outputs a blast of pink noise, and measures the frequency response of the attached speakers. If you have a microphone attached, the mic will auto-scan the response in the room and then reduce peaks as necessary.
