Behringer Xenyx X2442USB at a Glance:

  • Great-sounding mic pres
  • British EQ
  • Crank up the FX

Great-sounding mic pres
The Behringer Xenyx X2442USB is fitted with great-sounding, high headroom Xenyx mic preamps. These cutting-edge pres can hold their own against preamps in consoles costing considerably more then the X2442USB. You get a jaw-dropping 130dB of dynamic range, and a ginormous bandwidth extending from the subsonic to dog frequencies. You'll have a newfound respect for your mics when they're plugged into the X2442USB.

British EQ
The Behringer Xenyx X2442USB employs "British" EQ. What's up with that? Well, the EQ's on 70s British consoles were eminently musical, caressing your signal rather than jolting it. We're talking finesse. These highly sought-after holy grail EQ characteristics were the result of wider curves, lower Q, synergistic harmonic phase management, and general Brit engineering mojo. You could load on the EQ or make deeps cuts, all without incurring sonic acrimony. Happily, Behringer has emulated these delightful EQ (or should we say, "equalisation") characteristics in the X2442USB. Smashing.

Crank up the FX
Behringer Xenyx X2442USB features Behringer's latest 24-bit dual-engine FX processor. Armed with 16 editable, studio-grade presets, you get great-sounding reverb, chorus, flanging, delay, pitch shift and multi-effects. Use the Parameter control to tweak the effects to your heart's content. You can even enter time-based functions manually by pushing the Tap button in tempo with your music. With the Behringer Xenyx X2442USB, live mixing is an art.
