FP User's review
Price paid: $95 USD
A very straight forward mixer.
Buzzing here & there.Have to wait for the buzzing sounds to dissapear before i hit the record button.But sometimes the buzzing return while recording!! Godamnit!!
Should be ok for gigs.A definaite No No for recording.Everything sounds dirty with less head room after running through a signal into it.
Use to love them coz of their classy design & pricing but not anymore.I am progressing!!

Configuration gnrale simple, indeed. You turn the knobs, and .... It maaaaarche! (Yeah, walking, why you, does not?) I have read everything on this small console in the late 90's, and I find that one point should not joke. None of my collgues do prcise dtail in how it uses this table, for against critics are not uncommon when it comes to spitting a knob or a so-equalizer called ineffective.
The console is transparent (what that the era of purchase, in 1999, colourful midrange, which somewhat surprised) ... of hiss? Okay ... Yes, if you push any background, even the big consoles worth living wage gnrent also a bit of hiss, so ....
I read that the equalizer and the table were not worth Tripet, that nothing happened when you turned the knobs, you name it and the best ... At this point I wonder if the one speaks well of the same console ... Or I have bionic ears, because when I turn DSOL a knob in one direction or the other, I have to be careful because change means trs trs much faster and (I must be the Steve Austin of music!)
I bought this table in late 1999, exactly 1,850 francs of the era in a store brand distributor of Plan de Campagne, in the Bouches du Rhne.Je did not have much money, I certainly did not want the console with built-in effects, because prices like this, the effects are Ben .... ..... By the way, what effect? So I am back at home with this thing of evil, which it is true that THE FIRST costs, it said: It sounds squeaking, trs (too!) Mdium, This silent color that marked the era. I made a little by adding Autocom Pro era of the vocal microphone recording studio, then ULTRAFEX Pro EX 3200, then more rcemment (3 years ago) the Ultra Voice Digital (bomb!) and Ultragraph pro in equalizer, and two years ago the Tube Ultragain lamps and T 1953 Tube Ultra-Q as lamps burning before the final. I wanted a year ago to change the table, I tried the new Xenyx always in the same brand, but if they are remarkable for the price, live (best in low, it is closer Mackie of color, without reaching however) they will not at all in the studio. So I kept my MX 2004A, which is more "sche" in its construction, which makes me use for the bass drum and toms in gnral. I added the Lexicon LXP-15 (the Rolls of the reverb!), The Alesis Midiverb 4, Digitech Studio S-120, and before the music! Premire C'tait my mixer, I will change srement one day, but for now, I keep some time with her. For what I do daily, it is largely damped dj. The report quality price Behringer in gnral is the best on the market. Exprience with, yes, I do it again the same choice ...

The console is easy in hand, the routing is very simple.
The manual is clear and even describes how to make changes on the inside with a soldering iron.
This is where is the drama:
- Preamp too low, lack of transparency.
- Breath ...
- Breath ...
- THE BREATH! (By putting the knobs on the bottom, I hear the North Sea in winter)
- EQ imprecise and rough
- Knobs for aux returns that returns a little when even when set to 0 and the level of the hand is fully
- Knob linear ALT 3 / 4 that eventually let go after 6 years despite a very soft use in home studio.
- How long have you use it?
- What is so special that you like most and least?
the least: all.
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
mackie an equivalent number of ways but at the time I did not have the means and not really sharp ears to make a difference.
- How would you rate the quality / price?
- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

macmag's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Usage is classic. The manual is very succinct.
The sound is not great. Many of breath in pramplis when the gain is slightly pushed. EQ are quite effective. With an external prampli, the whole is neutral, and it's already not bad.
I use it for 2 years when radaction agree. It does its job by those famous pramplis, and that's the problem: today, I do not think buying a new console Behringer because of a ...
Mix2dub's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
For a small home studio is perfect because the number of entries is sufficient, which can test a lot of connections.
Configuration is very simple, it's always analog, not digital as sub menu. I put a little time with the Solo / PFL, but because I did not know the PFL, but they learn very quickly to catch up with gaps in our knowledge. It is a very simple console again.
Good for the sound, it's still behringer, is the breath when you push the volumes.
The preamp is very average, but the price / quality ratio is still very good in this constructor.
I use it for 3 years and it still holds the road. I have not changed it.
For a first or small investment, I suggest, but for serious work, I think we should forget the brand.
I will not buy the table if the mine was released because I now looking for quality pre-amp, but it is a good model to make his debut. But I still advise to small budget.

Beat Hohmann's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Within certain limits, you can even change the configuration (used for pre / post fader)
Mine is adapted to simultaneously control the six channels for surround recordings.
The manual (if you need it) clear to me.
In contracdiction with other opinions:
I measured the noise of the microphone inputs with Neutrik equipment / NTI Minirator + Minilyzer.
Even at 50 dB amplification (gain) - this is used to record "classic" with condenser microphones Neumann, Schoeps and Gefell etc.. placed at a distance as a main microphone - the sound relative to the input of mic preamps (XLR) was slightly lower than on my Mackie 1402 VLZ. Obviously, Behringer specifications were correct at least in this aspect. The results were much better than on separate Focusrite preamps (OctaMic) and Presonus (Digimax)! For those who like figures: My MX 2004A reached -129 dB (A) of noise relative to the input equivalent input noise = EIN.
The breath of the preamps MX2004 is much lower than the background noise of the best professional microphones like Neumann TLM 103, Gefell M930 and Sennheiser MKH80!
Of course, ACEC input "open" (infinite input impedance) the wind increases, but we judge with an impedance 150 Ohm eg realistic, because it is the output impedance of a typical professional microphone.
So I wonder if others have heard the soffle microphones connected to the MX2004, or really the breath of the MX 2004 preamp?
I use it 3 years now.
What bothers me are the knobs to adjust the input sensitivity that is not reliable.
Unfortunately, the Mackie has the same weakness 1402VLZ ...
Hopefully the new Mackie Onyx series will correct this!
In general, it seems that Behringer products sometimes suffer from negative stereotypes ... (Favored by vendors for commercial reasons?).
It was one of the reasons I really enjoy the exchange of experiences on Audiofanzine.

Shake's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
As above. Excellent manual and prcis, behringer stale (like everything is very well explained and should not believe a word of Technical Specifications posters, I'm not even that sr if they are shit measure)
IT'S A TOLL LEVEL MIXER EQUALIZER, despite its appearance!
in this use it is perfect, no wind, good quality faders no excessive crosstalk ...
the equalizer is vile (normal considering the price)
the pramps not be used with dynamic microphones but not too bad with a 48v (basically everything is fine when you are under 40dB gain, APRS is a day of mistral was blowing so much in the Camargue)
I put 5 for 10 for use as a "router", and 0 points as a "mixer" even if it looks strangely
170 euros OCCAZ
use in mixing / routing for line-level concerts. Robust, efficient, and flattering, "but how you sound like a behringer with??" Gnark.
Attention was not worth 200 euros when audessus same

there's no effect in ...
Practical use, yeah, classic pens for a small console
Oh yes I put one: just as a good patch, and again ... practice to route its machines, for cons is important not to touch the eq, and ask nothing better to connect preamp ... above preamps of quality and go online ...
with a dynamic branch above is the mistral, no potatoes and more ... fortunately there is no color dsagrable .. and again ... I never static test, would be stupid when I rev a good preamp ...
bred the shit out of bar ...
I use it for years, I have not had the intelligence to do the dmarche to change, I always circumvent its default in not using stuff with branch s Online ...
Oh yeah, it's cheap, but it was worth the money ... the solex console, think pedals in the mountains and brake in the downhill ...

Briefly, ds my sub I change, cons by sick of fucking her money by the window waiting to pay me an Allen & Heat, and I give the first Fauch passing in the street (the behringer, not A & H sr good, so follow ...), and I play Frisbee with the hope that it does not boomerang: I would frankly be ashamed to sell it someone ... unless it gives me a bottle of Bordeaux symbolic ...
Karakteriel's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Input and output jacks and XLR.
EQ bass, medium low (only stereo ales), mid, high.
No effect (all the better because if they had had the same quality and qu'la console I would have a nervous breakdown is to say for the console without a parachute jump of the 15th floor).
Everything is simple on this console, even my little ERRF (6 years) knows how to use it (he needs to watch a DVD I plugged the audio above).
When the manual, he is more than enough for this type of console not have to look far:
-You go home.
You gre-the level of different sources.
Thou out of the amp and / or your registration Systm.
So for a 10. This is my first console and I can not gallery as gallery on some sequencers or samplers.
Transparant means if a good sound then no!
I found a J'lui its super flat. Javais not so long ago one of the 80 Inkel bought 750 balls
and although it sounded much better, I still m'ettone when I listen to old recordings
2 rods are made with Inkel (the era I was 15 and the recording can not say that silent trs pro) and although I had a sound that give more than the p ..... Console m. ... 2390 bought fr.
1 / 10 because it works.
There is no DSOL for advertising. When a cre "Fiott liquid", it assumes the critical and can be
that motivate a Behringer do better next time.
I use it for 1 year and 9 months and the time seems long when you bump on the dung !!!!!!!!
The particular feature that I prfere is the price and I t stupid to think one day the right touch.
Their is the benef they sell cheap crap and the big quantitbr /> then you do not you be sodomized!
