    Use it to record and as your live gig board.

    The Behringer X1622USB mixing console takes the 1622FX up a notch, providing all the same great features, plus Behringer's 24-bit, dual engine FX processor, with 16 editable, studio-grade presets including reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, pitch shifter and multi-effects. User-definable parameters include reverb time and brilliance, delay room size and repetitions, modulation depth and speed, and much more. The audio mixer's time-based functions can be addressed via a handy Tap button. The most recent parameter settings are always stored in memory. The Behringer USB mixer also features 4 studio-grade compressors with super-easy one-knob functionality and a control LED, so you can take your vocals and instruments to a professional level.

    The Behringer XENYX USB mixer is designed to handle your live gigs, and it provides the state-of-the-art tools you need to make stunning, professional-quality recordings. Along with a built-in USB/audio interface, the XENYX USB mixer comes with all the recording and editing software you'll need to turn your computer system into a complete, high-performance home recording studio.

    Sonically Superior Mic Preamps
    All Behringer XENYX mixing consoles have one thing in common—great-sounding, high headroom XENYX mic preamps. These state-of-the-art mic pres represent a major step in the evolution of audio technology—and they can easily hold their own, even when compared to the most expensive stand-alone mic preamps. Behringer XENYX preamps offer a staggering 130 dB of dynamic range, with a bandwidth that extends from below 10 Hz to well above 200 kHz. Armed with these outstanding mic preamps, Behringer XENYX USB mixers provide such transparent, crystal-clear performance you just might think someone upgraded your mics while you weren't looking.

    Sublimely Musical British EQ
    The British mixing consoles of the 1960s and '70s changed the sound of rock and roll—without them the British Invasion might not have happened. Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world. The channel EQ on the Behringer XENYX mixer is based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to imbue signals with incredible warmth and detailed musical character. Even when applied generously, these equalizers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.

    One-Knob Compression
    Ask professional sound engineers what their favorite piece of external processing gear is and the majority response will be virtually unanimous—dynamic compression. What is compression? Compression essentially limits the dynamic range of a signal, lowering the level of loud sounds and turning up softer sounds, to achieve sonic balance. But applying compression is a delicate art that many novice, and even intermediate, sound techs have great difficulty mastering. Behringer's "one-knob" compression is available on all mono channels and is easy to operate, even for entry-level users. With this one knob, you can easily dial in the perfect amount of compression for instruments and vocals, creating powerful mixes with punch and clarity. This is indeed a rare feature for affordable USB mixers in this class—but standard on all Behringer XENYX USB mixers.

    Effective FX
    The Behringer X1622USB USB mixers features 24-bit dual engine FX processor, with 16 editable, studio-grade presets including reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, pitch shifter and multi-effects. Complete with a highly accurate input meter, these effects can be altered to your personal taste via the Parameter control. Time-based functions can be entered manually by pressing the Tap button in tempo with the music.

    Recording Bliss
    There was a time when the recording process called for lots and lots of expensive gear, which meant the average musician had to buy time at a recording studio—and that time was pricey indeed. But modern technology has put personal recording well within the reach of virtually anyone with access to a computer. How do you get all that music flying around your brain into your computer? That's where the Behringer XENYX USB mixer comes in. Thanks to the mixer's built-in, bi-directional stereo USB audio interface, you can connect any of these mixers directly to your PC or Mac computer via a single USB cable. Now any signal source you connect to the mixing console can be recorded directly to your hard drive. Which brings us to music software…

    Free Would Be Nice!
    Because you'll want to take full advantage of the Behringer XENYX X1622USB USB mixer's recording and podcasting potential, Behringer's thrown in a massive software package that includes Audacity (the most popular open source audio editor), Podifier, Juice, Podnova and Golden Ear (a great selection of podcasting software). You're ready to go live on your PC or Mac computer right out of the box! The music software also gives you more than 100 virtual instruments and 50 FX plug-ins, turning your computer into a complete home-based or mobile recording studio from input to output.

    energyXT2.5 Compact Behringer Edition Included
    When you're ready to take your recording projects to the next level, XT Software's energyXT is just the trick. This DAW (digital audio workstation) makes it easy to manipulate your audio and MIDI files, turning song ideas into stunning CD or Web-ready recordings. energyXT includes its own multi-FX processor, plus a built-in synthesizer/sampler and a drum machine, both of which can be accessed directly via an external controller (such as Behringer's UMA25S) or programmed in step-write mode.

        Comments about Behringer XENYX X1622USB USB Mixer with Effects:

        I bought this used and Musiciansfriend had it listed as very good condition but the minute I tried to use any effects it started shorting out and you can't record through the usb interface. With what it offers if everything worked it would be an awesome mixer and well worth the price. I wish I had gotten one that works so I could give a better review. It would be too much of a hassle to return it so I will put it out in the garage and use it with some old powered speakers I have. It does seem to work with my mp3 player plugged into the stereo 1/4 with very little white noise as long as the effects are off. The sound is really good through the first 4 channels as long as you don't use the effects or aux sends. I most likely won't buy anything used from Musiciansfriend again because this is the second time I've gotten something that is suppose to be in very good condition and fully working that isn't.

          Fantastic value

          By Steve

          from Okemos, MI

          Comments about Behringer XENYX X1622USB USB Mixer with Effects:

          We've been using this mixer for a year now, and couldn't be happier with it. I'm sure you could get higher quality recordings with better preamps, but you'd probably have to pay at least twice as much, and even then you probably wouldn't notice the difference in a live setting. In other words, it performs far beyond its value.
          For its price, you couldn't really ask for more features. We typically run two vocal mics, one "crowd" mic (for recording, using the provided 48v phantom power), a mic from an amp, three balanced line-ins from acoustic guitars, and an MP3 player to the board, then have the mains running to a PA, both aux outputs running to stage monitors, and all four channel inserts (wired as direct outs, see the manual) running to a USB recording interface. This mixer handles all that, plus effects for the vocals and guitar, and there's still a spare channel, more main outs, control room outs, subs, and aux returns in case we ever need them. Oh yeah, and you can record the main mix straight from the board via USB. I'd say not bad for a "budget" mixer.
          Apparently others have had issues with buttons sticking down, or channels completely failing, but we've been using this for live gigs (one to two per week) for an entire year, and haven't had a single problem. We used the provided brackets to mount the mixer to a road case, and haven't been abusing it (aside from normal wear & tear from the road), so far it has been completely reliable.
          I've seen mixers with far fewer features and even fewer channels at twice this price or more. That's not to say the preamps are top-notch, or that it will last longer, but I'm completely impressed at its performance over the last year given the super-low price. It's perfect for gigging, and I don't see any reason it wouldn't be a good addition to a home studio.

          overall it was a bad experience for me i really had hopes in this mixer
          I dont know what to say about this mixer other then it looked great and was priced nicely but when I got it I could not get it to send a sygnal into audition cs5 I would get sound from the pc to the mixer but no luck on getting it from the mixer into the pc. all I got when I hit record was a none stop crackling and poping sound out of it when the recorded session was played back

          Use in small band with Power Speakers. Compact in size but complex with compressor, effect, reverb, delay ... 4 frequencies equalizer make fine tone correction easy. Low price and worth every bit of it.

          Okay. The first Behringer XENYX X1622 had problems with random SOLO, SUB, and MAIN buttons. They stuck --VERY BADLY--. But I returned this unit, for another X1622 and it is 100% A-okay. No problems with the buttons. So, buyer beware. I LOVE THIS MIXER. Just the right channels and features for me and my home recording needs.

          Stuck buttons on day one

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Behringer XENYX X1622USB USB Mixer with Effects:

          I just purchased the Behringer X1622, NEW, in a store, two days ago. I already have one SUB button and one MAIN button permanently stuck in the down position now. I have 3 more that you have to press EXCESSIVELY HARD to get them to click off. HARD to the point you?re afraid you?re going to break the button or the motherboard it?s attached to. I like a lot of things about this mixer, but come on guys, you can?t create products like this and stay in business.If it was a SOLO button I?m dead in the water on day one.I?ll be taking this back tomorrow and I will fiddle with the buttons of another NEW X1622.But, if those buttons are the least bit sticky I?ll be purchasing a different mixer before the end of the day.I would be cautious with all Behringer XENYX mixers using these buttons. And last note. The controls are a bit, just a bit, wiggle-e. I suppose that?s fine, given the board is as affordable as it is. But if you?ve ever sat at a professional board where all the controls are rock solid? well. The wiggle in the knob that controls the effects was particularly noticeable. Just made me wonder how long this product would last. Hate to be a bummer but I wish someone told me before I made my purchase.

          Great for what it is

          By TylerHier

          from Lancaster, CA

          Comments about Behringer XENYX X1622USB USB Mixer with Effects:

          I run my own little home based studio, and this mixer does the job for just quickly tracking vocals and guitars. The built-in preamps are good but they're no outboard gear, same with the delay, reverb, and even the compressor. But they get the job done right? With 4 XLR plug-ins, I can run an SM57 for my amp, another SM57 for my mic, and of course 2 more XLRs for whatever condenser mics I have running. Being able to send the channels to "Sub 1-2" and main works pretty well too. I also use this Behringer Xenyx USB mixer for internet radio sections. It allows me to talk or even sing and play a guitar. If you're looking for one of those low-priced mixers that will (at the least) get the job done... THEN THIS IS THE MIXER FOR YOU!
