    Sonic excellence and a full complement of mixing and sound modification tools.

    The SX2442FX EURODESK mixer is designed to meet the needs of studio and live mixing applications, with a comprehensive set of features that combine sonic excellence and a full complement of mixing and sound modification tools.

    This 4-bus mixer features ultralow noise, high-headroom XENYX microphone preamps. 24 channels (20 mono, 2 stereo). Mono input channels feature three-band, semi-parametric mid-range EQ with Neo-classic "British" response. Stereo input channels provide precise four-band equalization. Each input has four aux sends with two sends switchable between pre/post fader, for a flexible mix of monitor and effects applications.

    External signal processing racks can be largely eliminated, thanks to the two integrated effects processors and stereo 9-band graphic EQ. One-hundred 24-bit / 96kHz studio-quality effects presets can be called-up and assigned to one or both internal effects buses. Main or Monitor output EQ is set and fine-tuned with the intuitive FBQ Feedback Detection display.

    When external processing is required, Behringer's SX Series provides extensive insert patch-points for input channels and main outputs. The mixer's Master section offers a wealth of features such as multiple aux and stereo returns, switchable SIP / PFL monitoring, Talkback, metering and more.

    An internal auto-ranging power supply (100 240V), gold-plated XLR output connectors and rugged steel construction ensure that this EURODESK console will travel anywhere to tackle any recording or mixing task, with pristine audio quality and a minimum of external gear.

    Features
    • Premium ultra-low noise, high-headroom analog mixer
    • 16 state-of-the-art XENYX Mic Preamps
    • Neo-classic "British" 3-band EQs with semi-parametric mid band

    • Solo-In-Place and Pre-Fader-Listen functions plus full-featured Talkback section

          Some of the initial reviews scared me off, but I bought one anyway. Everything feels pretty solid, there are some things that are good and bad:GOOD - 1 - Sweepable mids vs the smaller board hi mid and low mid eq's - 2 - Mic pres are better than the non-xenyx ones, but not as good as Mackie - 3 - Full soloing options are nice vs the smaller boards - 4 - Integrated power supply vs the old screw on line lumps.BAD - 1 - Onboard efx are hard wired post - 2 - No BNC light outlet, wtf? - 3 - Sub out, should have a crossover activation vs full range to the main and just a low pass to the sub out.All in all, you get what you pay for and this really isn't a bad board to get your through your woes. If you want great, pay for great. Otherwise, this is a good option.

          I would not purchase this mixer.I purchased this mixer in May 2012. The first one that was sent to me,channel 1 output didn't work.I purchased the extended warranty. Behringer is a difficult company to deal with. Even though the mixer was sent to me in that way, they didn't know if the warranty covered it. They finally agreed to send me another one, but I had to pay to ship the other one back first. Said I would receive the other one in 3-7 days. It took three weeks. Then find out the next one they sent me, the digital effects doesn't work. I sent behringer an email about the mixer I have now, but haven't got a reponse from them yet. The process that I had to go through with behringer, even though the mixer had a warranty, took three months. When someone purchase a defected product that has a warranty, you should be able to return that product in exchange for a new one or a refund.No questions asked. I'm thinking those mixers were refurbished mixers or returned mixers, not new ones, that was not checked out completely.

          Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX2442FX Mixer:

          This product falls into the "You get what you pay for" category. Great feature set at a low price.
          First unit was frustrating as level trims on the microphone inputs dropped the signal -20db one crack below full clockwise. Second unit did not have that problem but the metering wouldn't work. Third unit was like the first unit with the level trims and I gave up. Frustrated.

              Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX2442FX Mixer:

              Behringer stuff appeals to people with low budget. I've used a lot of B gear over the years. Sometimes you have to make due with what you can afford.

              Unfortunately, in a live sound environment you need the equipment to work and this board has caused too many headaches. The sound effects processor just goes nuts. We've had it inject effects while all effects sends and outputs were turned off. No way to stop it short of turning the mixer off and back on, kinda hard to do in the middle of a live set. It'd be one thing if the FX weren't too good and you simply had to turn them off, but when you cannot even turn them off... well that's unacceptable.

              Simply cannot be relied upon to do it's job, can not be recommended for live sound.

                We were using a Mackie 2408. Couldn't get the channels to assign correctly. Our Old guitar player got out his EURODESK SX2442FX Mixer. we unplugged the mackie and wow what a difference. Now the reason people think the preamps are muddy on this board is because the Feedback elimination will mud the sound out if you push the volume too much. Ok secondly Buy a case for this board because they are delicate compared to Peavey or Soundcraft. Much like the Mackies They have no frame mountings. This board will work great if you keep these things in mind and treat it as a delicate piece of equipment.

                  I have no problems with the Eruodesk SX2442 Mixer. For the money I blief that it does the jo well. If you need more sound or have a bigger room then you would have to purchase a much bigger mixer. But I like this one because it works well in our environment. We are a small Church.

                      Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX2442FX Mixer:

                      I would think twice before purchasing this mixer. Not only because of the quality, but also because of the customer support that you'll get from Behringer.
                      The features are nice when it come to playing live or studio recording.
                      The quality isn't so good. Had the mixer for 2 months and then two channels quit working. Shipped the mixer to Behringer for repair under the warranty because the 45 day return policy had passed. It's been at the Behringer service center for a month and hasn't been put on the list for repair yet.

                      Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX2442FX Mixer:

                      Great product, could use higher quality components but you get what you pay for
                      This mixer is great for all scenerios, studio, live, etc. with plenty of routing options, 2 effects banks, 9 band eq, 4 bus channels, 2 aux channels. It'll handle any situation you throw at it.
                      Although this mixer has great features and cool led lighting, I tend to have dropouts on the mono out, and sometimes the control room switchable channels act up. It's never been something I haven't been able to correct on the spot though. Thanks to the endless routing capabilities, it's never left me hanging.
                      Worth every penny

                      This Mixer Took Me A Couple Years To Really Get The Most Out Of It. What Is Great, Is The Mono Channe, Doubling As A Sub-Output. Using The Built In Crossover Adjusted To 80hz, Mono Output (Split)Into (2) Sends Dumped Into A BBE Sonic Maximizer, Then Sub Woofer Amp Sections. Massive Bass & Easy To Use. This Boards Graphic EQ Output To The Main Sends Requires Another Gain Stage Rack-EQ (Alesis) Adjusting Bottom End Lift To Maximize Full Range Bass To The Mains. Mic Pre's Are A Bit Bassy, Tuning More High End Is Needed For Clear & Bright Vocals. On Board Effects Find Reverbs Work Best, Others Are Thin & Weak. After You Work With This Mixer & Adjust Your Gear To Accomodate This Unit, You Will Be Blown Away With The Potential Of This Mixer, Incredible, With Professional Sound, - Un-Heard Of In Any Mixer. The Beringer Boy's Are Blowing The Whole Industry Away With High Quality At Great Prices. It Takes Time & Patients To Get Any Sound Device Working In Its Sweet Spot.

                      I like the feed back detection, the 2 indenpendent monitor mixes, and the subgroups out. I like the overall design and functionality of the board. However, the vocals seem dull. I have A/B'ed this board with an older Peavey and an older Behringer board and it has the dullest vocals of the three. I have yet to find an effect that I like on this board. Ohter than that it's gravy.
