OVERVIEW

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
  • 4 bus outputs and additional Mono output with sweepable Low Pass filter for subwoofer application
  • 2 independent studio-grade 24-bit stereo FX processors with 99 presets including reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, pitch shifter and various multi-effects
  • 9-band stereo graphic EQ allows precise frequency correction of monitor or main mixes
  • FBQ Feedback Detection system instantly reveals critical frequencies
  • Peak LEDs, Mute, Main mix and subgroup routing switches, Solo and PFL functions on all channels
  • Standby switch mutes all channels during breaks while background music is provided via CD/Tape inputs
  • 2 stereo input channels with 4-band EQ plus 2 additional stereo input channels with Level and pre-fader Aux controls
  • Inserts on each mono channel and main mix for connection of outboard equipment
  • 4 Aux sends per channel: 2 pre/post fader switchable for monitoring/FX applications, 2 post fader (for internal FX or as external send)
  • Balanced Main mix outputs with 1„4" jack and gold-plated XLR connectors, separate Control room, Headphone and stereo Tape outputs
  • Solo-In-Place and Pre-Fader-Listen functions plus full-featured Talkback section
  • Long-wearing 60 mm logarithmic-taper faders and sealed rotary controls
  • Internal autorange power supply for maximum flexibility (100 ” 240 V), noise-free audio, superior transient response plus low power consumption for energy saving

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.

Not that good

By Lisa Wyatt

from Virginia

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:

          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.

          Ask me a question

          Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX2442FX Mixer:

          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.

          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

          Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX2442FX Mixer:

          i'm in charge of sound for assemblies and plays at my school so i've used this mixer a lot. overall, it's pretty good. the only problem is that its kinda broke physically because one time some little kids got a hold of it... yea you know the story. and it has too much reverb, but i found out how to work the FX thing on it. it would sound much better of we didnt have a 100% metal gym with terrible speakers :P. other than that, it has some feedback at times, but if ya know what ur doin, its good. i recommend getting this mixer as long as you have speakers good enough. it is unpowered,which is my problem, we run it through some mini stereo mixer. like 100 watts into 20 or somethin like that. and the hookups at my school are terrible. the xlr floor plugs always destroy the end of the cord if u dont stick a key in it then pull the cord out. thats cuz the little PUSH button is broken off. despite all the other problems, the mixer itself is pretty dang good.

          Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX2442FX Mixer:

          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.

          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.

          I bought this to replace a smaller Carvin board for live theatre. The input flexibility and effects are awesome. The layout is comfortable and the controls are intuative. I would recommend this to anyone running multiple wireless mics and instruments. I can not wait to plug this board into a HDR system and cut some tracks.PROS:------------Dual Stereo Effects-"Master" effects (such as compressor)-16 XLR inputs-Brittish EQ (sweepable Mids)-Master 9-Band EQ with feedback control-4 busses plus Main-2 AUX sends-Faders are comfortable-Good Layout CONS:------------------48V Phantom power is for ALL channels (may interfere with wireless systes)-Bus outputs are 1/4" (vise XLR)-No USB/SPDIF out-Manual is not the greatest, advanced features are not explained well.

          Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX2442FX Mixer:

          I have owned three Behringer mixers over the past 7 years. The first one (UB1202) is still working fine. The second one (UB2442FX) has issues ( after about 1.5 years of service) of channels fading on the output side. This mixer I purchased as a refurbished unit so my expectations were low. Now we get to the Eurodesk SX2442FX. I have had this unit for 5 months,purchased new. The features and price point are hard to beat but I guess you get what you pay for. I now have a mixer with lots of features that really don't matter much since it can't do the basic thing a mixer is supposed to do. Collect signals from various sources and deliver to one or more outputs. The signal strength varies from channel to channel by as much as 16db. This is with the same signal input and all controls set at the same level. Yes, compensation can be made with the gain control but my experience with the UB2442FX has shown me that these fading channels only get worse over time. Bottom line is I would recommend looking past all the bells and whistles, spend some more money and stay away from Behringer mixers. I have not had any personal experience with any other brand but if Behringer fixes this mixer under warranty it will be on Craigslist and I will be shopping for another brand.

          Nice Price and value at the expense of Quality

          By SndEng

          from Minnesota

          Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX2442FX Mixer:

          As the title states, this product and similar products in Behringer's line-up offers awesome features and additional things at this very affordable price range. But I've learned the hard way and will not buy anymore products from this company unless their products dramatically improves in the next decade. I've owned 3 different unpowered mixers from these guys consecutively within one single month. The first one "SX2442FX" was returned for a replacement because no signal was achieved through any ports on it. The second replacement was required because 4 of the last channels 13-16 was not working in addition to the phantom power coming on automatically and staying on even when it was turned off. The third and last replacement had a number of problems, a few channels weren't responding, FX display was not functioning and displayed nothing, lastly after a week the total "Right side" main port gave out and nothing came out of there.Don't learn this the hard way, luckily this was our non-profit organization's money. After the third bad mixer, I purchased an Allen & Heath ZED-24, so far 8 months, no problems absolutely. Don't be fooled with the price, unfortunately at this day and age, you get what you pay for. Price reflects the quality of the parts, I don't truly blame this on Behringer, but the management that they hire to make decisions that can dramatically affect their customers trust.

          i've used this thing for home recording with a delta 44 and reaper for about 2 years. i get more and more calls all the time from people who've heard the stuff that i've recorded with it and want to come make a demo. like any board, it only sounds as good as the speakers you run it through, so with patience, know how, and a good ear this thing can sing. for the price, and with proper expectations, this thing is amazing. lets face it, if everyone had the dinero for the 5000 pro boards, this would be useless. here in the real world, this thing cant be beat.

              Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX2442FX Mixer:

              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.

                All the features packed into this board for the price should tell you all you need to know but many people want to believe that the quality is there.ITS NOT !! The preamps for staters are not very good and all the other "features" are below the quality of mixers in this price range.Simply put you should look at a Peavey mixer in this price range.You will not get all the bells and whistles as you do here,but do you really need em all and if you do you should save up the money and buy a Mackie or Allen and Heath
