Audiofanzine FR's review

Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496
(Originally written by sebastro11/translated from Audiofanzine FR)


Many parameters and possibilities. Be patient and read the user's manual so you understand how it works. The display menus and pages are well conceived!!


I find it's really a good device considering the price!! It enhances the sound of my keyboards and racks (I gave rediscovered my Roland JD990 and JV2080!!). It's stunning!! Be careful with the compressor and avoid extreme settings! In spite of this, everything is great considering the price!! I think it's a good tool live and even in the studio.


I haven't found a con until now (I've been using it for one month). You only need to think logically and be patient (it will be like magic!) I previously had a Behringer DSP9024 without digital input and output. This device does provide these connections, which is a must to stay up to date in the digital world!! I recommend it if you play live on stage (and if you like the Behringer sound!!)

Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496
Hello everyone,
I use my ULTRACURVE recent months. After a few minutes of settings, it works nickel. But when I let him walk for 15 minutes it begins to stop responding. The Left channel nothing comes out and no button works except the FSA. I switch off and on again, but I like it. I have to wait for hours for it to walk again again.

I saw in the net of updates, how it's done?

And one last question, without measurement microphone autoéqual Is the possible?

Thank you.

Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496
Essential material, DCX2496 renders multiple services, equalizer, compressor, limiter, anti feedback, analyze converter ... the list is long.


At first, ergonomics may seem confusing, but after a period of discovery, in reality controls are easy to access and the display is clear and well organized, given the size of the box.
For well maitiser, must already know what we will do many of these functions.


Many functions in a box 1 U is an achievement, especially at this price.
The overall quality of the functions is not critical for me. Used AES3 I freed and successive DAC, its losses, its distortions and background noise to pass.
Functions cover almost all needs of sound processing.
The record is worthy of higher-end brands, more expensive, not necessarily better.


After two years of use, this material has proven itself and brings me satisfaction. Incomparable price and multiple functions make it an essential material. Would recommend without reservation

Sibere's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A veritable Swiss Army knife of sound!"

Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496
View previous posts and the characteristics of the device.
I use it in analog I / O between my mixer and amplifier.

SNR of more than 110dB. If only Behringer PSU made a quieter, the SNR would surely be even lower since 24 bits/96KHz which is capable beast.


The manual was not provided. I downloaded the Behringer site.
I do not have any particular problem for use. I had read how to use it on different forums that deal with the DEQ2496.


No alteration of the observed. As it remains below 0.5 / 1db peak of the THD is very low.


self EQ is stunning and allows to linearize the response of the speaker and to adapt them to the listening room. FBD neutralises the resonance frequency. The top!

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" An indispensable tool"

Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496
Honorable characteristics.

The most important for my personal use, "the real time analyzer 61 bands". The simultaneous correction of defects speakers response curve but at the same time, the interactions of the room at the measurement point (usually the head of the listener to be located on the 3rd summit of an equilateral triangle whose other two are occupied by the speakers).
I also use from time to time the "seen and peak meter".

The display of the RTA (Real Time Analyzer) 61 bands is remarkably educational and insightful about the effectiveness of your mixes.


Concerning the use and setup, I preferred the old model. The configuration of the Ultracurve is not really simple at first. Should read the manual carefully and at the same time I read it, I highlighted the useful points of it.

Following this work I personally wrote a booklet summary of the calibration settings for an installation of sound diffusion, especially that once achieved, it does not return every day and you end up forgetting the setting tool. We do not re-calibration of the delivery device in case of a significant change in the provision of equipment or a change of speakers, for example.

At this moment I configured it to me shows the spectrum of sounds coming from the machine before correcting pregnant in order to analyze the sound as I treated and not the corrected and sent to the speakers, which mean absolutely nothing.


The sound quality is not critical.

The advantage of using I actually was only my usual listening I know that I have a linear or non-colored by the speakers themselves or by their positions in the local or by the lack of room acoustics (standing waves). I think it is useless to have very good listening if they are not corrected for the local although once this work is done may well fall equalization and correction see a good equalizer 31 Ultracurve strips and reserve for other uses ...

According to diverse opinions, converters of this machine would be of great quality and transparency and that could make one of its many uses.


I use this product for years. In college there are already more than 12 years while I was teaching the sound, then at me for 2 years at least. I could do without.

I have a JVC high-performance headphones and I found something similar with my MSP5 Yam equalized, which is far from being the case when I was bypasses correction Ultracurve without which my sounds are tainted and ringing Other parasitic resonances due to the position thereof on my office placed against a wall.

The advantage of this machine, its report "quality / price" unbeatable. I have not tried other real time analyzers since in my knowledge, there is no affordable.

Laps's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" only for the RTA and the meter"

Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496
see data sheet of the unit


I don 't use it just for the rta (easy to calibrate) and meter (as practice and display the peak rms)


I can not say because I do not "cross" not the device: I 'sends the signal via spdif out of my console


I have bypassed all the functions and I use it only for its function rta (spectrum analyzer) and is great for that!
the equation is quite graphic sucks (not accurate at all) and the function of self eq to correct the acoustics of a room is pretty bogus ... I have not even tried the compressor ...
but hey, considering the price this machine can not do anything!

dbSono's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" He does his job"

Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496
Overall, this is a box of digital effects that can influence the frequency response in dynamic sound passing through it.

The technology used is mainly digital, that the sound is converted to digital input, except to get in already digitized format (SPDIF or AES / BU) and is converted to analog output (except out in digital format change).

Principally engaged in a 31-band graphic equalizer, plus a variety of EQ, compression.

For the rest I refer to the product documentation available on the Behringer website:


I use it for several functions:

1) I go out of my SPDIF format and send console 01V96VCM modulation "Main" in DEQ2496 if necessary to treat the sound broadcast room.

2) I use the digital output AES / BU to transmit sound to another box facade "cousin", ULTRAMATCH PRO SRC2496. This allows me to keep the signal in digital format as long as possible without breaking the chain.

3) I use the DEQ2496 to equalize the sound room using the automatic search function of the resonance frequencies.

The manual is quite clear and the use of the DEQ2496 is relatively easy in general, provided to give a bit of trouble to capture the main features.


It is always difficult to say if the system interferes with the signal quality product output console as much as I do not use the A / D input, or the D / A output.

A tip on this subject: we do not overstate the harm can be done by subjecting a signal of the different A / D and D / A in the processing path. I read an article in "Sono magazine" I believe a recent study that shows these adverse effects.

For my part, I send my broadcast signal, output D / A conversion of my SPC2496 (connected to my DEQ2496), to a NEXO LS400 NXAMP4X1C + + PS10A and everything sounds correctly in my ears.


Overall, this is a nice little fun and cheap equipment that can process sound in a satisfactory manner for personal or semi-professional.

I like the function of automatic equalization of the spectrum of frequency response of the room used. This is a function that always made me dream when I was reading the articles on material Altec Lansing (to the great age of 70 years. The old like me will understand!).
Behringer has implemented it in its case for a highly competitive price and I recommend it.

In the end, this unit has a very good quality / price ratio and I do it again the choice of purchase if necessary.

Cimerian's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good investment"

Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496
In fact it is a clone of following in the Wave Dsp following:

Multiband Compressor
Phase Expander
De esser

He also excellent stereo 31-band graphic equalizer
A parametric
And an anti-feedback for live

The LCD is of good quality

The routing and chaining are configurable DSP and back up through a bank users

Master output and monitoring
The connection is complete, Aes Ebu - SPDIF - clock - midi in / out - Xlr / jack


The manual comes in several languages, including ours.

The config is very simple, you have to "manipulate" the various sections to get a good report.


Everything is well thought out, the sound is not distorted, unless you compress a nag ...


I just sell it because I do not use it much anymore, I have other options for the same purpose, do not use it on stage, the feedback function I was not needed.

I used it for over 5 years with happiness, no loss!

Unbeatable value for money ...

Piekov's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496
Digital Equalizer


rackmount configuration very simple, clear manual that I read once.
The controls fall to hand and it comprises 90% of the operation just by looking at the LCD backlight.


The effects are numerous and effective, it certainly should not expect to be on the *** for such a price but it plays its role in small and medium-sized halls: and semi parametric EQ parametric, compressor / limiter, stereo width processing, multiband compression, spectral analysis of a room with feedback suppressor (via a micro analysis), generating white noise / pink ... The tool is really full.


Very good value for money, I was afraid to buy Berhinger because it is the bane of sound engineers, but the brand gives us is a product of excellent craftsmanship in the finish. Very practical
