blancjs's review "Excellent mixer!!"

5
24/8/2 in line console
Semi-parametric EQ
8 sub-groups, 6 aux sends


USE

I use it in my personal home studio.
Classic inline console.
Simple manual but not very useful, everything is pretty clear on the console.

SOUND

Very little noise.
The EQ is simple but it works all right.
6 aux sends, which are more than enough, especially with the 24 inline returns, if needed.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it since it came out and I do everything analog, to have everything at hand without the need to browse endless software sub-menus to find what you want.
It was my first "big" console and I haven't had the chance to compare it to any others.
Unbeatable value for money given its possibilities.
EVERYTHING works fine after more than 15 years!!
It sounds really good, there's not much to add.

bobafett31's review "The mixer with 1001 I/Os"

5
24 mic inputs + 24 line inputs
Inserts on all tracks
4-band semi-parametric equalizer
8 sub-groups
6 auxs (4 pots + switch between 3/4 and 5/6)
External power supply in 19" 2.5U rack format

I think there are over 250 I/Os on this mixer! There are inserts everywhere, triple sub-group outputs, etc.

Get the manual to learn more!

USE

It's a classic mixing console
But be careful, depending on the version, the direct outs aren't wired the same way, on the first version they are post-fader!!

The bar-graph can display either the 24 mic or the 24 line inputs.

SOUND

I think it's a very good console with a great sound for live gigs!
It makes much less noise than the brand's modern consoles! (I've ran some tests)

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you been using the product?
Two years

Did you try any other models before buying this one?
Yes, several Yamahas, Behringers and Mackies

Which feature do you like the most / the least?
The bar-graph is really handy, as well as the dual monitoring section
The routing possibilities are huge thanks to the 8 sub-groups, 6 auxs and 24 inline inputs

Based on your experience, would you buy this product again?
Absolutely! It's one of the most comprehensive analog mixers I've seen. There are certainly better ones, but they cost 10 times as much!

After a day of use I am very far from being disillusioned!  Really very nice like a table, maximum possibilities! too bad! First generation table like a mackie, it's sublime!

UTILIZATION

Simply great!

SOUNDS

Super clear, I find it to my taste, really perfect! I have the first copy of the series mackie! No breath unless you push the knobs !

OVERALL OPINION

Overall opinion, I bought it for a great price and in super good condition, I am really happy to return to the good old consoles because I got really tired of digital! promix, 01V, 01V96, vm3100 pro, ect! this choice I would repeat without hesitation!

Nothing to add to what has been said already. Truly impressive connection options for the price. The direct outs are particularly useful. I use it in my home studio to record and mix together with an Akai DtD. I use my PC for midi.

USE

Very, very comprehensive and simple. 8 buses and 6 auxs. And inserts and direct outs on every channel. The routing is very flexible. Personally, I have a lot of fun routing the direct outs to other tracks.

SOUND

This is where you start understanding the price. Namely:
- It's not very transparent. Although that's a matter of taste.
- The preamps are noisy when you crank up the level.
- The pots aren't precise. It can be exhausting to adjust a send/effect, for example.
- Equalizer? Really? There's an EQ: Without a doubt its weakest point. Fortunately, thanks to the flexible routing, you can get round the problem processing the signal with a real EQ. Personally, I use the mixer's EQ for backup vocals and use specific rack gear for the main vocals.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it secondhand and have been using it for 7/8 years. One channel doesn't work anymore and 2 or 3 faders have issues.
I love the number of channels and the ultra-comprehensive configuration possibilities. The least: The EQ.
I tested a Spirit. But I needed more channels.
Exceptional value for money (in my particular case). I would certainly buy it again.
Although I will soon switch to a PC-based setup (Motu 24 I/O + Cubase 4), I'll keep my console around to write songs, as a "mixer" for my rack gear and when my friends come over to jam. I will use it very little to record or mix.
To sum it up: I'm very satisfied with the services this nice console has provided me.

Well... I'll be the first to write in this section.
I went this weekend to Germany to get it.
350 euros (yes... on eBay)

You can read the features on www.Behringer.de

Apart from the fact that it doesn't have any effects (which doesn't bother me much, since I play drums).
It has all the features of a big console (which rarely have effects!)... 9/10

USE

Very easy to use (if you have the manual).
It's a real treat to use!
I have nothing much to say in this regard, except that the faders on mine feel way too smooth, I would've preferred them to offer a little more resistance.

SOUND

Neutral sound. No alterations.
You get what you pay for. No noise (I tested it with a Neumann as overhead mic...Which I could NEVER afford!!!).

6/10 (not considering the price)
10/10 (considering the price!)

So 8/10

OVERALL OPINION

Neutral sound, routing possibilities that even some "big" consoles don't have, the faders lack "stiffness" on mine (they feel cheap).
Otherwise, there's not much to add.
Oh, yes,... Would I buy it again? Yes, I would!!! Unbeatable value for money!!!
For an amateur home studio... It's a real delight.

A real pro would want and can certainly pay more!!!

NOTICE GLOBAL

Just a little clarification on this table that I have in my possession for many years.

Behringer has lost its pro against Mackie, because this table was a carbon copy of Mackie, Behringer for the next version to simply changed the presentation of the table, including changing the knobs couleure to differentiate themselves from the Mackie !! !dropoff window
In terms of préamplie between the old version and the next version, it is only speculation at the time, the bell tower of noises, "he parrait that", and made their way snowmen, but it is not so, and that is the same on both versions, but not at all the same as the Mackie !!!

Non Rack Console.
- 24 channels (24 channels inline), 8 bus, 6 auxliaires
- Connector jack / XLR architecture complete
- Équalos 2 + 2 semi-parametric fixed by
- No effects section.

UTILIZATION

Despite his side "gas factory", this table is simple to use thanks to its ergonomics and its logic.
It's simple: we can do everything on it! One has the impression that anything is possible in terms of routing and connectivity.

SOUNDS

The console is not really transparent but does his job: clear sound, good potatoes, very little wind. Equalos correct.

OVERALL OPINION

I use mine for ten years and then: no problems except some occasional crachottements a few knobs.
It is true that it throws in a studio, the number of channels is an additional comfort: no need to disconnect / reconnect constantly machinery or tools, each has his way attritrée!
At the time of purchase (12,000 francs), it was almost exact copy of Mackie 24/8/2 for the third of the price!
A good machine, very interesting opportunity

- Ability to switch between the slices with the corresponding entries Mix B (very convenient).
- 48 V phantom Alim assignable in groups of eight (less convenient).
- Micro integrated and assignable orders.

UTILIZATION

Clear routing, connectivity much more abundant on some models, however, much more expensive, it's a console that is beginning to impose. Its separate power supply and weight inspire confidence ...
100 mm faders glide well and are accurate. Manual in English, but not off-color, with handy synopsis.

SOUNDS

The preamps are pumped back to those of a certain very famous Mackie at the time, good dynamics and clarity are great to visit. You really have to push very hard to recover breath. The équalo unfortunately without setting Q is a shame because it would have been perfect ...

Otherwise, this console sounds "neutral", it makes no specific staining, and personal, I like.

Certainly there are better, but we'll have to break the piggy bank ...

OVERALL OPINION

I've been a ... since then? Long, for sure. Pumped back to the Mackie, the MX-8000 found in undeniable qualities and his abundant connections can do just about anything you want. Following a trial against so-cons lost Mackie, Behringer MX-8000A emerged a lot worse then the 9000 ...

Assets:
- Connectors for this staggering price range.
- Matos strong.
- Good preamps and équalos.
- Section mixing comprehensive and well laid out, with many possible assignments.
- Aesthetically pleasing, it is important when you bump it 12 hours a day ...

Cons:
- The Q on équalos missing.
- No phase inverters.
- The assignment of the phantom in groups of 8.
- The connection is fabulous, but once the banner bargraphs laid, access to the connector and switch Mic / Line becomes impractical.

Well, at risk of being down in flames by all critics of the brand (and there are many), I am sorry to say that Behringer has not come out as dung, and this console is an illustration . I bought it at the time being not sure of the keep. Well it is clear that it is still there, the matron, and I never had any technical problem. Certainly qu'électronicien time, I've made some changes nice, but it's a good carcass. Currently, it is coupled to a Tascam TMD 1000 Fly-in a big box, and all groups are managed by TDG Digital 1000. Well it makes quite a gas plant, worthy of some bikes a lot, but really much more expensive.

I regularly handles large consoles with names that make you dream. I also have a D & R. We certainly can not compare, but still: ergonomics, simplicity and sound quality that are fun for everyday use, and endurance is at the appointment. What more to this price?

Especially as the market opportunity, we can reach in good condition at ridiculous prices. But be careful, eh, take an MX-8000, not the MX-8000A is not at all the same ...

The value for money: breathtaking. I would do if this choice? Mmmmmmh, why not?

Just to say I Fully agree with my prdcesseur!

UTILIZATION

Idem.

PSU's (impressive!) is 19 inch rack, 2 units.
strong, stable and ventilated by a small fan latral (the srieux).

if that little fan ESG by the murmur lightweight, but Submitted, he does, you can open the top of the "box", cut the son of the fan (once the power supply unplug e sector, of course) and put a piece of insulating tape at the end of each.
Then it turns the fan and it does not cover the power supply.
we put a grid arati rack above and below the power supply in the rack o faade it up (I'm clear?) and it works well as a trs .
and presto! super silent power supply!
thank you that? ...

SOUNDS

To search for the tite bte ... it would be better with the SETTING THE Q parameter.

OVERALL OPINION

Used for 6 years, still no problem of reliability.

the era I made the right choice, I think.

now is the best in qualitprix occasion.

if I bought new, for the j'hsiterais numrique, but though they say ... the pramp of mx are better than those of yam digital and ergonomics is a marvel.

then ... aa more face in a stud! (Especially as it is cascadable! ...).
