This Mixer has 2 Microhpone impurts and they have Gain Eq, and a few FX that you can use. You have some BPM synchronized knobs and a crossfader start options. One thing I like a lot about this mixer that I feel some other mixers lack is there is a button that you can push that will restore your previews mixer settings that you have used before. This is great because you don’t have to go through and do all of the same stuff that you have done before on your mixer. Never seen another model that can do it quite like the Behringer Digital Pro Mixer DDM4000 can, its pretty simple.
No hiss generated, eq was simple nothing to complex
Overall the Mixer is pretty good, its high quality and it has a ton of creative tools and an ok layout that will take some getting use to, but like I said before this isn’t something that you should get if you are a working dj, because there are other models out on the market that will blow this one out of the water for around the same price. Benhringer always delivers affordable products though, so for that reason is why I gave this mixer a try. I will give any company that has a good name a try over one that I have never tried before.
This is my "beater" mixer. I bought it without doing a whole lot of research. I needed a unit under $500 that I could drag with me when I was in a hurry. A friend recommended this. I'll start with what I like about it. The inputs are good and I never have an issue with a lack of any of them. I don't even use all 4 channels usually. Every so often I will have an odd situation that calls for an extra channel or 2 so it's good to have as an option. Fading between that many channels can get crazy if you don't know what you're doing but the layout of the ddm is pretty sensible. For newcomers who have used an actual mixer board before, the DDM is moreso like a real mixer than other "DJ" mixers I've found. For a guy like me coming from a live audio background I find this to be great. Although there's something to be said for a unit like this that can sometimes feel like it's trying too hard to be 2 different things sometimes. Just something to keep in mind.
Now here's what I don't like. First of all my sub out doesn't work and never did. The fader sliders feel wrong to me. I'm not sure how to explain this other than saying they just aren't very comfortable to use. The tolerances are too tight? Also the gain meters on my unit don't show up too well unless it's very dark. I guess this isn't a huge deal since most of the venues I go to are fairly dark but still it's annoying. Other than that though I like this unit. The buttons feel good. and the knobs are okay.
Sound quality is surprisingly good. I find that Behringer stuff usually has a pretty good level of quality with sound while the hardware suffers more. Obviously my sub out not working is a bother. The eq is just okay. Nothing great but it works. I've never had any hiss issues. I know someone told me it had a built in noise husher or something but I didn't see anything about that in the manual.
Like most products, it has to last, and considering the amount of times I have dragged this mixer around town, I'm impressed that it's lasted. It seems to me that Behringer stuff that breaks, is going to break very soon after buying it, and then it will never mess up again. Fortunately mine is mostly functional after 2 years of use. It's not the best mixer I own but for the price I like it. Well kind of. Honestly I feel like this unit should be more in the $300 range. Yes the features are killer but it's behringer...
Audiofanzine FR's review
See Behringer's website.
Easy to use for experienced users. A few hours are enough to manage the device... It's great considering the numerous functions it provides. The main functions are easily accessible and the user's manual is very clear.
It doesn't add any noise in spite of my 10-year old sound system.
The EQs are as effective as Pioneer EQs and their response curve is very progressive.
I've been using it for four months.
Pros: Sound quality, overall power. Behringer surprised me with this mixer! I expected an unreliable device in demanding situations. The mixer works perfectly even when I use two complex effects, two simultaneous samples and all outputs. It's a great improvement compared to previous Behringer products.
Cons: the blue LEDs are too bright!
Very nice value for money. You'll hardly find a better feature/price ratio.
Based on my experience I would certainly buy it again. The durability of the mixer is still to be seen... Talk to you in one year
RaidenStevenson's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Behringer? Often criticized, but never equaled!"
Double box effect is really impressive and complete. Integrated MIDI box is a bit disappointing against is the reason I drop a few points.
In a childlike simplicity. On the other hand, rarely has a difficult table to use ... The manual is comprehensive but not really useful. It flashes in every direction, it is quite pleasant to take over because the buttons are easily identifiable.
The equations' are nice, really accurate. For against the blast, it was always the black point of Behringer. I mixed on speakers of different sizes but when the sound is too loud, CRAC, breath sounds.
The black dot!
Used for a little over a year and a half, I had tried many models before this one. The grip is happiness, the effects are rich and accurate. The knobs are a little toy in the long term, they slide a bit after daily use. A quality / price unbeatable! With the experience I would do this choice with his eyes closed. I would put a caveat for the user looking for a table for celebrations, parties etc. ... breath is a shame but not off-putting!

guiguiBOT's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Double or nothing!"
This is my first table, I've handled a few hours eclerc but that's all.
I quickly understood the general operation, the table is divided into modules and indications are quite clear. It will take me out the manual for some more advanced functions such as setting the cross, knobs or using the little ergonomic effect box. Buttons usually do not breathe the high quality, but they do not scratch and the key is there. The cross slide very well, but it is not worth thinking about to scratch on that table. The knobs are pretty well spaced practice for large hands. The rear panel is very clear, each connection has its description but this is the same it does not exudes strength. Strength, that is the problem with this table. So we pay for that is all. Me this problem has resulted in a DOA, direct back to the seller for exchange.
From what I've read right to left this table is not very stable electrically and is very sensitive to improper installation and tends to buguer sometimes. Me the problem was: Christmas Tree in power, no functional button, screen black display, no sound. After ten power switch, an error message on the "Adjust VR24 for readability" screen. And yes it's made in china, so depending on the model, I feel that the quality is variable.
Know that there are two variants of this console, with a blue LED and a green LED.
Here I expected the return of the seller ...
Transparency is good enough (on studio monitors), a slight hiss not really disturbing. The equalizer is very effective and it is more configurable frequency.
I used demo. I used a Eclerc and some other low-end tables.

The general configuration is it simple? The usual functions are they easily accessible? The manual is clear and sufficient?
The grip is quite intuitive in all, the effects are easily assignable (except for the mic or have to travel a bit in the menus). Although some parameters remain vague enough for me, and I have not yet seized utility (without feeling the lack so far), such as "bounce to twelve o'clock clock" in cross section, in the south FX or "XMC" in the mic section for me section are buttons that are there, but useless, they probably should have a utility that I do not operate, but they do not interest me more than that.
Regarding the usual functions, no worries, I did not need the manual to teach me to use it, even if it is quite clear (rather thick for that matter).
I was struck by the clarity of the signal that let in the table, where before there was breath, DDM 4000 pass only the signal that had come in, clean and pure.
Regarding the equalizer, it seems to me that it is customizable, you can edit the frequencies supported by each of the three bands (thus never changed to the conditional), each band has a pseudo key "kill" to cut or isolated (your choice) the corresponding frequencies, but the frequency can be manually switched off since each band at least cut the signal.
I use this table regularly at parties, birthdays, or even at home for my own pleasure, she has never let me down, I have since modified the original cross fader by fader innovative, more suitable to scratch, but the quality of the original cross is not questioned, and it would have probably made me even long hours without my whims.
This is my first "pro" table, or at least adapted to the disco, I had chosen both for its quality and for the price, really attractive, and I'm not disappointed, the quality / price ratio is excellent, and I'm not even tempted by the higher-end models that propose at most a few additional effects for a price ranging from double to triple (or more). I found a product that met my requirements perfectly, simple and effective, with a very good price here.

djayy.clem's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Ergonomic table PRix reasonable and very intuitive"
4 channels can put two amps in RCA and XLR in very handy for returns
2 EQ modes
Assignable effect on two channels at once mild disappointment at this level or assignable to master the table if box has good effects
Everything is easy to tame
Good attention in the red table has its limits all the same level but its very correct
equalizer truly effective
yes full of models
Accessible table level budget reliable? it remains to be seen how well i hope will be 5 or 6 years but I do not believe it! The box was indeed nice afternoon with pc really damn good!
Excellent value for money, with the experience I would do this choice without hesitation even if now I'm leaning more on the pioneer

trz_303's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" After 4 years of use"
it is rackable and equipment is provided (unlike what I've read in feeds)
Ergonomics party effects a bit confusing.
Quality effects very satisfactory.
I made my first feedback in January 2009.
After 10 months of use (the one with blue leds) I had a problem with distortion on the MAIN output, I argued my warranty (THOMANN) and I got a new table with the green LEDs this time thereof.
Apart from this worries I never had any other problems, she always answer very well for my needs and I always recommend.
According to some it seems Feedback for intensive club as head table, the construction is a little light, it is therefore more suitable for use at home, in home studio.
Any way the clubs can afford to pay for tables intended for intensive use such as the famous A & H.

This is a table that I recommend to many friends who, like me, use it constantly (disco, radio, personal) we could have seen fear about the outcome of the series 700 (in avoided) but Mr behringer.jamais hat there a concern that the bonheur.c is on if I used it as a nag (I've seen, they missed them more than the hammer and chisel lol) she could not go away (like everything else). wants to go away, cleaning his horse.
With experience, you do again this choice? ...
