Behringer QX1222USB Overview

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
