Behringer XENYX X1832USB-18-Input USB Audio Mixer with Effects
The Behringer XENYX X1832USB-18-Input USB Audio Mixer with Effects is an 18-input 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 six microphone preamps, “British”-style EQ, and six easy-to-use one-knob compressors.
It provides four mono channels and four stereo channels, making it suitable for small and medium-sized audio projects. There are three aux sends on every channel (which enable you to route individual channels to stage monitors or external effects), and three stereo aux returns. Every channel features a 3-band EQ with a swept mid, which can really help you make vocals and instruments stand out in a mix. The built-in USB interface allows for a bi-directional transfer of audio to and from your computer. The energyXT2.5 software is compatible with Mac, Windows, and even Linux operating systems, and includes virtual keyboard instruments and drum machines.
The built-in 24-bit dual-engine effects processor features 16 presets that include, reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, pitch shifter, and multi-effects. You can edit the parameters of every preset, and a tap tempo button is included to sync time-based effects. The six 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 six XENYX preamps offer 130dB of dynamic range, and the 3-band “British”-style EQs allow you to finely tune your mix. The XENYX X1832USB is suitable for recording studios, video editing suites, live sound mixing, podcasting and more.
