Audiofanzine FR's review

Behringer Sonic Exciter SX3040
(Originally written by barbilux/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
It's sort of like a low/high EQ but it's a bit more sophisticated than that. An EQ amplifies high frequencies, the SX3040 creates them! It generates second-order overtones using the existing frequencies. The effect is more subtle than an EQ.

The device also allows you to precisely shape the low frequency range.

Two-way mono operation, which means fully independent processing and bypass.


The black dot on the chrome knobs should be more clearly visible so that I can write down my settings.

The device looks good and it has a good finish.

I use it with TRS jacks. The signal to noise ratio is ok. But boosting high frequencies always amplifies (white) noise too!


It's certainly a good device for mastering and public address applications but I use it for recording and mixing. I use it mainly to add clarity to my vocal mic but also to shape the bass adding it subharmonics. It's also good for drums.


I've been using it for about six months with my DAW.

Very good value for money.

Boost the bass without going through a tedious settle equailiser

cre of harmonics on the treble

clarifies a human voice

even double module => STREO be L / R, or two separate entry



Simple manual, 5 minutes Getting Started

clearly, the trick is for those who do not want to spend hours on an equalizer, those who have a home studio semi pro.

for those who rock, metal, ca boost the bass, li good amp, the result dchire

for teckno or electro or tribe, installed between the mixer and the amp, it's enough create a sound system (anti larsen advice!) Wild!

for classical music, filter out the sounds pure trs (violin, harp ...) to get out a clear

Personally, I installed downstream of my mixer, I have my three knobs high, mid and low that allow me to mix the way I want.
downstream excite me maintain my paramtres gnraux and 6 buttons, I instantly corrects any nuance that might appear.

Attention is not an equalizer is, you can put one downstream, but at the risk of losing the harmonic functions of acute


Own effects and awesome, turn your speakers woofer and tweeter sounds reworked

report quality price => there's no better
rack, consider putting it up, finish: average, standard Behring
between jack and XLR pairs possibility "virtual output by fiddling between 4 mono and Stereo

big +: the table with double mix between auxiliary output, with possibility of cords Y rinjecter Berhinger the sound of the table and shuffled to the original sound => ca transforms a small group of Scud in zic! or cre effects HALL friendly enough


3 months of use
Nothing to say

See manufacturer


Simple Config
Manual light
SERIES in between console and amp for example (jack6.35 or XLR)


Amliore much the bass and treble
amliore lightweight: a little more warmth and clarity, but it breaks no bricks but hey I have been given I will not do the difficult
