A 12 channel, feature packed powered mixer that delivers versatility and control

Peavey proudly introduces the new XR1212P powered mixer. Designed for versatility in live-performance and sound-reinforcement applications, the new XR1212P features a dual 600-watt power amplifier that can be summed to the main output (1200 watts) or used independently to power mains and monitors at 600 watts each. Each standard channel includes an XLR input and 1 ⁄ 4" line input, as well as a 1 ⁄ 4" channel insert. It has gain adjustment, 80 Hz low-cut switch, two monitor sends, EFX send, and low, mid low, mid high and high equalization controls. Two stereo channels feature dual 1⁄4" and RCA inputs, respectively, and XLR inputs.

The master section features digital 9-band graphic EQ for both output amplifiers, with a built-in Real-Time Analyzer that analyzes the room and sets the EQ curves automatically when a microphone is connected to its XLR input. The master section also includes a built-in patented Feedback Ferret digital feedback elimination and a digital effects section that includes a range of reverbs, delays, compression and chorus with preset storage. The dual auto-EQ and Feedback Ferret can be assigned to two outputs--left and right, main and monitor, and monitor 1 and 2.

Feedback Ferret applies sophisticated, narrow "smart" filters that find, lock and suppress offending frequencies before human ears can even detect them through virtually instantaneous notching with incremental attenuation to eliminate the feedback. The algorithm continuously checks and rechecks the problem frequencies and then releases the filters when it no longer detects feedback.

    This powered Mixer has every configuration you can think of,very versatile.
    Its 12 channels with 12 XLR inputs.
    Used it live for medium venue combined w/ an IPR1600+external EQ.
    Used it live small venue in Main/Monitor mode Sounded great pushing 2 monitors and 2 EV Eliminator mains.

    You can just use the XR1212 on its own and power mains/monitors (2 mains ,2 monitors for example) for a small venue set up

    Its Light yet powerful It replaced an older BOX style powered Mixer that was nearly the same price at the time with only 8 channels and far less features and of course it was heavier.

    With 5 amp modes you can decide on your set up,Use the INternal amps for mains and an EXternal amp and EQ for monitors,Or an EXternal amp and EQ for mains and use onboard amp and EQs for monitor mixes,either or... its your choice.

    Sub out to a powered Sub or Amp and Passive subs,built in crossover to send Low Frequencies out.
    In monitor Mode It auto removes some of the lower frequencies that create boominess with floor monitor use.80 Hz Cut on all 12 Ch. for vocals or instruments that dont require those other low frequencies for a crisp clear sound on vocals or guitar,relieving stress on the amps and reserving power for the other instruments that require lower frequencies.

    This Powered mixer is worth the price,It replaced a very good 8 channel powered mixer and is a massive upgrade as far as having a powered mixer on hand.

    We are a 4-piece live band that plays in venues seating around 120. We go with the Main/Mon with sub amp selection (sub LPF is 100Hz to the Mono out). We have two 12" Mains, two 12" wedges, a powered sub (with built-in 100Hz LPF), and a IEM system. For the later, we tap off the channel inserts and feed them into a 1U submixer before routing to the IEM transmitter. For the powered sub, we use the aux2 (pre-fader) bus. We prefer having separate volume controls to the Mains and sub, otherwise we'd use their Mono out jack). The Mains get a HPF signal greater than 100Hz. All that means is less energy waisted on lows and more built-in amp power for the Mains and Wedges. Our PA is small in space but huge in sound. Again we've had it for a year. We average about 3 gigs a month. No problems, complaints, returns.This mixer is awesome.
    The EQ follows the amp selections. I believe there are 5 possible modes. Effects work great. Lots of channels/inserts. Very powerful and clear. The only thing it lacks is compression and maybe another aux (it comes with 2). But the EQ's slam the competition. It comes with 2 EQ's that follow the mode you select. In other words, Main/Main with sub, Main/Main without sub, Main/Mon with sub, Main/Mon without sub, and Mon/Mon without sub.
    Built like a tank. No problems. One year and counting.
    I'd actually give it a 4.5, only because it lacks compression for the voices.

    Comments about Peavey XR 1212P Powered Mixer:

    I've been using this board now for over a year for a regularly gigging 4-piece band, and it's been rock solid with superior sound.

    If you're doing your own sound (sans soundman) this board is a great choice. We hardly play the same room twice so the built-in RTA has been a godsend. It also has anti-feedback, but once you RTA it, it's hardly needed as it flattens out the problematic frequencies. It super easy to use and just takes a minute. It's the easiest RTA device I've used.

    The Class D amplification has been rock stolid. I also love how flexible the power configuration is.

    The special band of EQ it has for crisping up the vocals is very musical and is a great shortcut over the conventional EQ.

    With great features and reliability Peavey does it once again with the XR1212!

      Comments about Peavey XR 1212P Powered Mixer:

      I've had this mixer for about a year now, long enough to put it through almost every imaginable test, from seven piece acoustic bands, to bands using electric instruments. It is all I had hoped for when I ordered it. It is very light, has plenty of power, and flexibility beyond my needs.

      There are a number of features that separate it from the rest of the market. I'll limit my comments to three.

      First, the individual channels have a unique EQ voicing. Each channel has a low, mid-low, a special mid range, and high. The mid range cuts frequencies at 2k but the boost is at 4k. Why? Peavey learned that boosting 2k typically results in a harsh sound. You often need to cut 2k, but seldom need to boost it. The 4k boost helps add definition when needed.

      The second feature is the switch to configure the system. You can choose main/monitor, left/right, main/monitor/external powered sub, and other configurations. If you choose the main/monitor/powered sub option, an internal crossover removes the lower frequencies from the mains. When monitor is selected, a high pass filter removes low frequencies from the monitors, which are the frequencies that muddy up the tone and needlessly consume power.

      The third feature is the auto-EQ. It has several components. One identifies problem frequencies and attenuates them for the duration of the performance. A second set of filters removes spikes as they occur, even before the user hears them. The white noise generator in conjunction with a microphone placed in front of the speakers automatically EQs the mains and/or monitors to the room.

      I have had many compliments on the quality of the sound from this mixer. If a traditional powered head is not sufficient for your needs, and lugging around a rack full of equipment is not your thing, the XR 1212 may be just what you need.

          I,ve played 40 years. Now I play bluegrass 4 vocal and 4 acoustic instrument mics. I like the auto equalizer and feedback feret. I like that it is powered and light and it was on sale when I bought it. It is easy to use and portable.

            Comments about Peavey XR 1212P Powered Mixer:

            Musicians Friend once again came through. They got it here the day before our gig. It was easy to set up and we had no issues. We need a little time to tweak it but so far so good. We run 10 mics, 5 vocals and 5 instuments. So neddless to say we make the mixer work. Our normal gig is 3 hours long and that is enough time to put a load on it and see if it holds up!
            This mixer is loaded with all the features you need.
            I reason I don't rate the mixer with the highest rating is that I have only used it a couple of times so far.
            I am very satisfied with everything so far. If it all holds up while being set up taken down and moved to the next gig it would have been a great deal.

            Comments about Peavey XR 1212P Powered Mixer:

            We are a 4-piece live band that plays in venues seating around 120. We go with the Main/Mon with sub amp selection (sub LPF is 100Hz to the Mono out). We have two 12" Mains, two 12" wedges, a powered sub (with built-in 100Hz LPF), and a IEM system. For the later, we tap off the channel inserts and feed them into a 1U submixer before routing to the IEM transmitter. For the powered sub, we use the aux2 (pre-fader) bus.

            price is well worth it.

            from Boston area

            Comments about Peavey XR 1212P Powered Mixer:

            Got this for our 4-5 piece cover band. Needed more channels and flexibility. It replaced a Peavey XR684 powered box. After 2 gigs, we are thrilled. Not only do we have more channels, but the power is clean, the EQ is fantastic ... Put it this way: we played this weekend at venue that we've played at regularly for 7 years. Tough venue: no space demands we use 1 Yamaha 15" main, 1 Kustom 10" wedge as a main (both @8ohm); 4 hot spots for monitors and mains out to a set of small powered speakers. We had people all night complimenting the sound. "You guys never sounded so good!" was typical. Night before was a dinner dance for 100 in a big venue. No problem as we mic'ed everything, and sounded great. Has all the flexibility we'll need with 12 channels (13, when you consider that ch. 11 allows both line and mic input to be active at once.) all the features you'd want, decent effects. Only drawbacks, compared to others in its class: no built-in compression (like yamaha EMX 5000 series) and no subgroups.

            Our lineup is electric fiddle, acoustic & electric guitar, bass, drums, harmonica and 5 vocals. At times we use mandolin and accordion as well.
            Rock solid Peavey

            Comments about Peavey XR 1212P Powered Mixer:

            I got this mixer a month ago and have used it at 6 gigs. It as been great. Very easy to use and light weight. Plenty of power. We use it with a 5 piece band it sounds great. We're running one channel for mains and one channel for monitors. It gives you lots of choices in how to assign the two internal amps. The mid morph is very usefull. One of the reasons I bought this mixer is because all 12 imputs have XLR imputs which allows us to use a snake and still have all 12 channels to use. Most other 12 channel mixers have only 10 XLR imputs. This board has alot of features, it does everything we need and more. Haven't used the auto-eq feature yet. Seems to be built very well and it sounds great. I would recommend it. I put it in a Gator GMIX-12PU-TSA case and it fit perfectly and it's very easy to transport and set up for a show. Search for Peavey XR1212 on youtube. There's a great 2-part video about this mixer.
