Behringer Eurorack MX2642
Rack with rails to adapt, or placed on table.
The connection panel can be back (ideal for rack 19) or on the face of the above.

UTILIZATION

Super easy to learn, no need to book.

It has routing capabilities quite enormous. I use it with a sampler, a PC and some synths. It is a pure joy.

SOUNDS

This console is quite transparent, the equalizers work, but it does what you pay for. There are better, and it is more expensive.
Be careful when using the preamp, there comes the breath. Then use the XLR cables, and everything falls into place.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 5 years now. I got it for a ridiculous price (90 €).
Why?
Because it has the same problem that many Behringer products: it is mounted in China, and the welds tend to let go after a low intensity use. Bring you a good magnifying glass and look at the welds you will see that some legs of components are off the seam. the solder has melted around the leg of the component, and the contact is no longer good, if at all. A little patience, a stroke of soldering iron where you need it and it's gone.

Behringer Eurorack MX2642
WARNING: A notice has been previously recorded for the MX2642-A
Both consoles are slightly different. In particular, the 2642, all connections are XLR or TRS.

- Is the rack?
Yes, with either rear connectors or connectors with the front (the back to toggle)

NUMBER OF SEE, BUS, AUX, RETURNS & CONNECTORS + EQUAL.

>> 8 slices each with mono
. XLR input jack or an insert effect and a direct out
. 3-band EQ (treble, bass + the semi-parametric mids)
. 75 Hz low cut filter
>> 4 slices stereo
. Input 2 mono jacks
. 4-band EQ (treble, high mid, low mid, low)

For these tranches:
. Gain
. Pan
. Auxiliary 4 (1-2 and 3-4 or 1-2 and 5-6 with pre or post on 1 and 2)
. Mute and PFL / solo
. Slider 120 mm
. Assignment "main mix" and / or sub-groups 1-2 and / or sub-group 3-4

>> 4 "slices" wireless stereo equalizer: just an entry level, allocation mix and sub-groups and two starting aids.

Add to that a general effect on insert "main mix" and "tk" back to listening recorder (can be used as another input assignable to main mix, but has just one level adjustment ).
In addition there are 6 departures of assistants and 4 start subgroups.

- The effects section is it integrated? ...
No effects processor.

I forgot, of course, a headphone jack on the front with level control.

UTILIZATION

- The general configuration is it simple?
Yes. Getting started is easy and intuitive for anyone who knows a minimum of consoles.

- The usual functions are they easily accessible?
Yes
But the channel button (subgroups / main mix) are hard to reach live between the sliders.

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Yes

SOUNDS

- The console is transparent?
Enough

- Introduced she breath?
Yes.

- The equalizer is effective? ...
No! We can not say that the game is leveling the highlight of this console.
It's frankly not that great!

The sound is the big weak point of this console that also (routing, reliability, connectivity) I find really good.
But hey, it's done to make its ...

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
four years (and it was an opportunity).

- What is so special that you like most and least?
most is the connections and the number of the groups and sub. It can really solid and varied configurations (and flexible).
The less is the sound quality. At first she used to live in the bars. There is absolutely correct. It is now used for rehearsals. For the studio, it's going to make the model / demo. But hey, do not expect the sound.
I still managed to do a lot of demos with mine ... which generated a packet of dates.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Few.

- How would you rate the quality / price?
Most excellent. I paid the 1000 console secondhand balls in perfect condition. No complaints.

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes. In the context of the time. And I highly recommend it for:
- Beginners or amateurs
- Sound of small scenes (bars)
- Make demos
- Sound repetitions.

I have to switch consoles today: I need a much better sound quality to be consistent with the rest of my studio equipment.
The problem is that when one is accustomed to these important routing capabilities ... it's hard to do without. And a lot of good sound + routing = hefty ;-)

Note that I was quite surprised by the reliability: the console, an opportunity I repeat, has dozens of concerts without rackée (cruised wrapped in a cloth!) And I have not any problems.
