I have not seen a better, cheaper, more portable, not to mention versatile, board. It has become and absolute necessity to my Behringer Eurodesk MX2442A.
This is where the UB1002 has proven itself to be a smart investment.
Here are the specifications that come directly from behringer:

•Effective, extremely musical 3-band EQ plus switchable low-cut filter on all mono channels
•10 balanced high-headroom line inputs with +4/-10 level selection on all stereo channels
• State-of-the-art 4580 operational amplifiers provide lowest noise and distortion—better than 4560 op amps
•1 post fader FX send per channel for external FX devices
•Peak LEDs on all mono channels
• Main mix outputs plus separate control room, headphones and stereo tape outputs

First and foremost, I use the 1002 when I need to go on location and record radio spots. It allows me to give the presenters everything that they would have in a studio, without carrying around all that weight of a studio board and still get the studio quality sound. Next, I am able to use the aux sends of the mx2442A and have 1 to 8 separate mixes directly into the ub1002, which is connected to my laptop via an external 24 bit sound card, that allow me to have more control over the mix into my laptop.
The sound quality is great on all of my previous projects, but this new addition has made recording more versatile and allowed more “fine tuning”, that makes the sound quality even better. This board is not only good for recording or mixing sound, it has also been a great help to me, as a musician, also. I am a drummer as well as a recording engineer, and I am very picky about my headphone mix. I use the 1002 to control my own monitor mix from my drums without worrying about getting the sound techs attention, and trying to give him hand signals on what to turn up or down. So you see, this is an excellent board with endless uses.
As you can see, this mixer is very impressive for its size and price. If you do not want to spend big bucks on equipment, but still need the quality and versatility, this is the board for you. I highly recommend the ub1002 even if you do not need it now; you will at some point need what this board provides.

titi0163's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I use this small console with a battery electric + CD + amp + PC + headphones
The equalizer is only on the two mono channels (this is where I connected the battery)
Control Room function and connectivity OK
Master fader with nice and clear.
Being a novice I was initially a little difficult to understand everything.
Now, with the manual very clear French no problem
Use logical and very carefree.
I have seen no breath (either with the headset, with an active speaker or amp)
Equalizer effective (on the 2 mono channels)
Headphone very good for me.
+ For a year I use this little table I do not really regret my choice.
The price is really affordable for use at home to mix it really well.
It was perfect would be if the equalizers were also on the stereo channels (but the price and size would certainly not be the same)

scual's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
This is not an analog console rack.
It has 10 channels (2 mic pramplifies, and 4 inputs (* 2 because Stros) line level).
2 bus output: headphone and main track.
Double jack connectors for line inputs, XLR and jack for microphone input.
A 3-band legalization is only available on the mic.
Intgr no effect.
For that I use (I connect my POD XT live on a line between my two other PC on 2 line inputs, my piano numrique on the line between dernire My microphone on the microphone) is perfect: compact lgre, trs CHRE little ...
The only default level CHARACTERISTICS is for me the lack of an ON / OFF button (hold to unplug the machine ... with a power switch, the problem is rsout me ...)
Gnrale ultra-simple setup, no need to take a look at the record, it is still in the box ...
All functions are easily accessible.
The manual ... pfffff .... not need (the 1st table I use)
So the transparency level, everything is in the rglage and interfaage DIFFERENT blocks of the audio processing chain.
Honntement, the table introduces noise that ds is pushed a little too all levels, but it's silly to try to push everything back, so if it is done correctly, a very sound trs s good!
For my part, I use Cables of good quality, and its fate on Logitech Z3 speakers multimedia.
In this configuration, and Z3 privilgiant amplification of the table, I have no sensation of breath ear ...
The legalization ... Bof ... Everything is Galis sparment before entering the table, so I use it only on the microphone ... It's not gg but I like the sound my micro is 0 is not in this Gnant ...
I use it for about 1 month.
It is done all what I wanted, it fills out its rle trs.
Aside from the ON / OFF button missing, but it is a trifle, no complaints.
I have not tried other models, I wanted a table not CHRE, c'tait CHRE the least ... It suits me, so I keep it!
Report qualitprix excellent.
I do it again this choice without hsiter.
I put 9 because there is a send effect (to), but why there is the rest of the range ...
The manual is clear
easy to use from having to always connect or disconnect the power supply (no on / off button)
Transparency = mwe ..
there is noise but as long as we stay within normal ranges for the use of knobs it remains below-75dB or less. I know that uses the pro series ub in home studio (outside of work ... basically anything ..) and frankly for the home studio is not bad at all.
That said it is better to provide for other mic preamps as delivered. They are not useless far from it but if they were to be considered in the note I would put 6 / 10.
Addition of 18/01/2006
It is best to avoid getting an audio signal for recording by this table. Very sensitive to electrical disturbances, it incorporates and amplifies the recorded signal. In fact it is great to know which device makes a noise (in addition to it) in the home studio! I do not change the rating given the price, it will still have many services to the signals coming out ..... until another solution.
I use it for 2 years and no problems yet it is falling heavily ..
very good value for money. I do not buy a replacement that knowingly it works well, depending on expected usage.
