Equally effective in the studio or for use at a live show.

The Behringer EURODESK SX4882 mixer is an excellent solution no matter if you're recording in the studio, running live house sound, recording a live show, or using it as a stage monitor mixing board. Designed with live performance versatility and recording necessities built in, this feature-packed mixing console combines years of every sound engineer's wants and needs into one high-performance machine. It may not get you free beer or groupies, but it rocks for live sound and recording.

What is an in-line mixer?
An in-line audio mixer is a mixer within a mixer. That's the reason you will notice this mixing board is labeled Channels 1-24 and Channels 25-48. It's really two 24-channel mixers in one.

This "embedded mixer," called Mix B, is typically used in recording applications, but it has some useful live-sound features as well. In the studio, Mix B allows you to return all your multitrack tape channels back into channels on the board without losing any of your 24 main-input channels. This provides seamless playback and mixdown capabilities with just a few button pushes and no additional patching. In other words, no visible plumber cracks or untimely delays. Live, Mix B can be used to send a totally separate 2-track mix to a recording device, separate speaker zone or out to a broadcast feed, plus it functions as an additional monitor or effects bus.

One reason you'll really appreciate having the in-line mixer is simple: live recording. If you've ever tried to make a recording off of the board during a live show, you know how well that doesn't work. Often input and output levels necessary for quality recording do not match the requirements of the live mix, where stage volumes factor in to the overall room sound. Getting around that issue used to require a splitter and second mixer just for recording. Now that is eliminated by having an in-line mixer in your live board.

Va-va-va-versatility! No more creative patching
Input choices and routing options are not overrated. In fact, they are essential to managing technically complex instrumentation or multiple bands all patched into the same board. And while you may not need every patching option for every show, at least you know you have every input and output option you could ever need. You will be grateful your audio mixer has features like Insert points on every channel input, all Subgroups and on the Main outs. Direct Outputs on each channel are very useful too and may even make you a hero for about 5 minutes when you can provide a seemingly improbable solution by taking a direct split off the console to feed some other input source.

The Behringer EURODESK SX4882 lets you use your creativity where it matters most—in getting the sound and mix you want, not on brain-twisting patching compromises and channel-routing puzzles. Complete versatility and accessibility is what it's all about and the EURODESK mixing board does not disappoint.

All channels are indeed created equal
There's no scrimping and saving on this board. Every channel has every feature of every other channel. They are all the same. No more "if only" sighs of frustration to utter as you try to organize your inputs.

As long as we're talking about channel strips, you might as well know that this mixing board has a big treat in store for you: two bands of semiparametric mid-range controls. This is two more than many boards offer and at least one more than most live sound boards. Gone is the dilemma of EQ-ing out the honk at 600 or adding a little upper-mid crispness at 2k to bring out the clarity. Now you don't have to compromise.

British EQ for Incredible Sound
Expensive British mixing consoles have long been praised for having sweeter, smoother, channel EQ than many other mixers provide. That's why the EQ circuitry on the EURODESK SX4882 is designed with British-style EQ, with wider curves and smoother phase characteristics. It maximizes effective frequency sculpting without harshness or gaping holes in the audio spectrum. This sweet feature will benefit your mixes—both live and in the studio. And it's worth repeating that there are two sweepable EQ bands, not just one. That's a must-have for many situations, and the EURODESK mixer delivers it.

Mic pre's—the muck stops here
The audio mixer's microphone preamp is one of the most important circuits in a mixing console. It boosts the low-level microphone signal to a line-level operating level and it's the first bit of processing applied to any mic signal. No doubt you've heard the phrase, "garbage in equals garbage out." This is really true when it comes to mic preamps. Common issues with lower quality mic pres include noise, distortion, low headroom, and unimpressed fans. BEHRINGER uses high quality XENYX preamps in our professional mixers. These are ultra-low noise, high-headroom preamps that can hold their own, even against expensive standalone boutique-style preamps.

Buttons, buttons, buttons
This baby's got buttons. Do buttons look cool? Yes. Is this why they are on the board? No. They're there because you need them all. During a live show you could use four of the subgroups for instrument and vocal sub-mixing to the PA and the other four could be for a tape submix, if you choose not to use Mix B as your tape mix. For use with a stereo PA, you still have 4 subgroups total to work with, and when used as a stage monitor console, the Behringer SX4882 mixer can provide up to 16 independent monitor mixes by combining the subgroups, Aux busses, and L/R Mix B.

In the studio, the eight Subgroups allow maximization of recording inputs by allowing several channels to be mixed down to a smaller number of recording tracks. By combining channel inputs into subgroups which go directly out to tape, you have the ability to record even more than 24 discreet inputs. Also, the outputs of the subgroups have selectable operating output levels (+4dB or -10dB) to match the inputs of your recording device.

The MeterBridge—functionality and stunningly cool
Once you've had a meterbridge on deck, it's hard to go back. Essential in the studio and amazingly cool live, the meterbridge provides visual confirmation of what is going on with all your signals with just a quick glance. Each input channel, all the subgroups and the main outputs feature 12-level LEDs organized incrementally with traffic-light-style color coding, so you can verify input and output levels, even on the Mix B channels.

Applications
Church Services
Running live sound in houses of worship has become a truly professional pastime with the advent of affordable, quality sound gear and the rise of congregations that require bigger and more capable sound systems. The multiple input and auxiliary send options of the SX4882 audio mixer are designed to accommodate a wide variety of performance needs, large and small.

Worship services, choir, and music ensembles are easily mixed and recorded live. Go directly into your digital interface from the subgroup outs, Mix B or Main Out, right into your tracking software. CDs or DVDs can then be distributed to members of the congregation who may have trouble attending services.

Corporate A/V
Corporate AV is a truly multimedia experience, where there may be many different input sources—from a laptop, MP3, CD, DVD, television, projector, or camera. The EURODESK SX4882 has RCA tape in and two external 1/4" 2-track inputs, plus each channel has the choice of balanced or unbalanced, +4dB or -10dB input levels. Mix B provides additional input options for routing audio sources into the console. With 48 total channels and 82 total inputs, even the largest conventions can be accommodated. Corporate presentations often require sound reinforcement to a large room, typically with several pairs of speakers scattered throughout the auditorium. With eight subgroup outs, you have 4 sets of individual stereo controls, in addition to the main L/R out. Mix B provides an additional stereo mix, for a total of 6 separate stereo output options.

Eurodesk SX4882 is a winner

By dhughe1

Ask me a question

Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX4882 Mixer:

I purchased the Eurodesk SX4882 mixer to replace the Eurodesk MX9000 which I used in my home studio for several years. I loved the MX9000 but it developed problems with switches, faders &amp; input channels so I purchased the SX4882 because of my experience with the MX9000 and it was the same layout (not to mention the great deal offered by Musician's Friend). When I received the SX4882 from Musician's Friend it had way, way more problems than my old mixer (too many to list) but Musician's Friend immediately took care of me and sent another one at no cost to me and minimum hassle. It has now worked perfectly for several months and I love this mixer too. One strange thing about the unit was when I received the second SX4882 about 30 small screws were very loose and some had fallen completely out into the box Even the large screws holding one of the sides on were so loose I thought it was going to fall off when I opened the box. At first my heart sunk but luckily I recovered all of the screws and tightened them and tested all of the functions on the board and there have been no other problems since. I've never encountered a problem like that before or heard of it from any other reviews so it may have just been a fluke. Except for the returned unit and the loose screws I am completely satisfied. Thank you Behringer and thank you Musician's Friend.
Everything needed for studio and professional applications. Routing and soloing out the wahzoo. Very quiet, great EQ, 6 effects sends with stereo returns, Mono or stereo grouped buss outputs, METER BRIDGE (thank you very much), 24 channel B mix with 2 band EQ (I use this for headphones mix). This mixer is extremely versatile.
Designed and built very well has excellent quality but I'm waiting to see if the parts hold up longer than the MX9000.
Probably the best value of any 24 channel analog audio recording mixer on the market.

Not Happy

By Bruce-ARNbI

from Texas

Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX4882 Mixer:

I have had the MX9000 for a few years and is an excellent product. Ordered the new SX4882 so I could use my MX9000 as a backup.The first SX4882 was DOA in the box. Musicians Friend took good care of me and I received the 2nd one. Power supply went out on the new SX4882 within 30 days.Musiciansfriend is taking care of me but not so sure about the product anymore. From what I could tell from limited use, if the board stays running, it will be a good clean sounding board.

Can't Get Better for the Bucks

By SlowHand7

from Perth Ontario Canada

Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX4882 Mixer:

The Behringer Eurodesk SX4882 is absolutley loaded for the money. It is very transparent and provides and over all sheen that one would expect from boards costing 4X the money, atleast as good as the Mackie. If you take care of it, it should last a long time. Behringer gets a bad rap for their products but they provide the tools for the financially challenged artist. I think most of their equipment exceeds the dollars versus quality ratio. Don't even blink. Pick up this board for your home studio!

Awesome

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Behringer EURODESK SX4882 Mixer:

Finally replaced my old Soundcraft mixer and got this one here. Absolutely love it especially the fact they have built the power supply inside the unit so there is no need for the bulky 19" box anymore.The mic pres are awesome and the whole desk very, very quiet. Price? It's rediculous. Well done Behringer!
