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

The SX3242FX 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 & sound modification tools.

This 4-bus audio mixer features ultralow noise, high-headroom XENYX microphone preamps. Mono input channels feature three-band, semi-parametric mid-range EQ with Neo-classic "British" response. Behringer 's 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.

The EURODESK's 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, the SX3242FX provides extensive insert patch-points for input channels and main outputs. The Master section offers a wealth of features such as multiple aux and stereo returns, switchable SIP / PFL monitoring, Talkback, metering and more.

The mixer's internal auto-ranging power supply (100 240V), gold-plated XLR output connectors and rugged steel construction ensure that this console will travel anywhere to tackle any recording or mixing task with professional audio quality.

  • Premium ultralow noise, high-headroom analog mixer

      Bought this mixer as an upgrade from an all-in-one powered mixer the band was using before. We needed more XLR inputs and this board gives us 24 channels of XLR. Zero defects out of the box and gigging fine for over 6 months. I like the one button mute for the break music input. Fade out the break music, toogle the mute button, and the live levels are right back exactly before break. High marks are given in consideration of zero defects out the box, meeting and exceeding my expectations in almost all respects, and the solid performance over 6+ months of use. Drawbacks: We use the two pre-fader monitor outputs, before we only had one. But 4 monitor outputs would even be better. Also, I want to stress that the EQ is for either the mains OR the monitors. My old all-in-one unit had separate EQ for both the mains AND the monitors. Since almost all feedback occurs on the monitors, set the EQ for monitor mode and just work the channel EQ's for the mains, or get an external multiband EQ unit for serious tweaking. Hasn't been a problem for us, but I did like separate EQ for both the mains and monitors. So I marked the unit down on the features just a bit. Considering the price you pay for this board compared to other 32 channel mixers, those are relatively small complaints. For a cover band gigging a couple weekends a month, this fit our budget. I am very pleased with both the price and solid performance of this board.

      I purchased one of these for my church and in less than two years of use one of the special effect channes is non-functional; the on-board eq switch is damaged; we have been experiencing intermitent signal output loss in the main fader (reflected in a lower left channel)(this we have worked through using tuner lubricant spray every two weeks). We have continued to use it but we are afraid it will continue to break down. We are replacing it. We have had the same type of experience with other Behringer equipment. They are a good value but they malfunction soon after we atart using them (compressor / limiter; direct boxes). May not continue to buy Behringer.

        Comments about Behringer SX3242FX Eurodesk Mixer:

        Not sure I can recommend this product. I have a call into Behringer as we speak.

        1. Both sound efx processors failed after using about 5 times. I had to open the board, pull the two processors off the motherboard, clean them and put them back. It's been fine since. It's been over a year.
        2. Aux 1 send now feeds back and is unusable. I run XLR into TRS to feed from snake. This failed at a gig as the room was hot and had to use AUX 2. Trouble is the FBQ doesn't talk to AUX 2. I struggled with the monitors all night.

        I also owned at 12" powered monitor that quit after 2 usages. The transformer went.

        The local service guy I used terminated his contract with Behringer as they were to difficult to work with. Now, what do I do? Pay for shipping. I went all in with this company as I couldn't help but be swayed by price. Hmmmm.....

          Comments about Behringer SX3242FX Eurodesk Mixer:

          Both sound effect processors failed and created uncontrollable noise. I had to take it apart, pull out the two sound boards, clean the connectors then replace it. Once done, it's been fine since. Surprise I didn't find anything on the internet about this problem. I gave it three stars as I only did a few gigs and rehearsals within a few months and experienced this. The board was not gig-worthy until I fixed it.

            If you buy this board, make sure you get the Musicians Friend extended coverage. I didn't and I spent months fighting with Behringer when the board died on a gig. They finally replaced it, but many of the same problems are now appearing...flat spots in the pots, overheating in the power supply area. Now the warranty has run out and I am stuck with a lemon. I carry my old, used Mackie as a spare, just in case. Definitely not worth the listed suggested retail...worth about that Musicians Friend is offering it for at the moment.

              I have been with MF for 8 years now.This board works really Great. The built in FX is a pleasure to have. Less rack space to fill. Makes for shorter setup time, which gives me more time with the bands I work with. I have approx 19k watts in power and it handles it with respect.

              Comments about Behringer SX3242FX Eurodesk Mixer:

              at any given time, our webcasting group would have anywhere from six to ten people on the air along with musican equipment. before buying this board, we used a 12 channel mixer board and had to switch out body packs to get the next person on the air. now that we have a larger mixer board, we do not run into that problem anymore. We purchased a power amp to use for our in-house speakers, and this mixer board works great with or without that amp. Well worth the money

              Comments about Behringer SX3242FX Eurodesk Mixer:

              I bought this mixer for my band because I'm a die hard behringer fan. We originally had the europower pmp2000 but we couldn't fit everything in one mixer so we bought this. The thing is great especially when you have subwoofers and need an output directly for that. The only thing is that it only has 1 eq so you have to choose between main and aux so I would just get an external equalizer.

              Pretty Good Mixer

              from Missouri

              Comments about Behringer SX3242FX Eurodesk Mixer:

              Nice mixer with more features than most live applications need, subs work well, nice selection of aux and eff choices, even a mono send for subs. Can be ran without external EQ but not recommended. Digital effects are very comparable to dedicated rack mount units. Had one channel quit working, so it's good that I have 32. If you use it outside clean it immediately, especially the sliders, seems more sensitive to dirt and dust than other brands, but overall pretty good.
