OVERVIEW

5 Inputs, and a USB audio interface built-in.

The Behringer XENYX Q502USB mixer is made to handle live gigs, and provide you with the required tools necessary to capture professional-quality recordings. Along with its built-in USB/audio interface, and "one-knob" mono channel compressor, the XENYX Q1002USB mixer comes with enough recording and editing software to turn your computer into a complete recording studio. The smallest of the XENYX Q Series, the Q502USB is a 5-input, 2-bus mixer with a XENYX mic preamp and compressor, just the right size for smaller solo gigs. Thanks to onboard phantom power, Q502USB's XENYX mic preamp can handle dynamic, as well as a studio-grade condenser mic. Elegant in its simplicity, the British-style, 2-band EQ provides warm and musical tone correction. The Q502USB also sports RCA CD/Tape I/O, handy for playing break music or for recording your set.

XENYX Mic Preamps
All XENYX mixers have one thing in common; great-sounding, high headroom XENYX mic preamps. XENYX preamps offer 130dB of dynamic range with a bandwidth that extends from below 10Hz to well above 200kHz. As a result, XENYX mixers can reproduce a cleaner, transparent performance.

British EQ
The British consoles of the 1960s and ˜70s changed the sound of rock and roll. Without them, the British Invasion might not have even happened. Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world. The channel EQs on all XENYX mixers are based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to saturate signals with warmth and character. Even when applied generously, these equalizers exhibit forgiveness and superb audio quality.

USB Audio Interface
Modern technology has put personal recording well within the reach of virtually anyone with access to a computer. But how do you get all that music flying around your brain into a computer? Thanks to the built-in, bi-directional stereo USB audio interface, you can connect directly to your PC or Mac computer via a single USB cable. Now any signal source connected to the mixer can be recorded straight to your hard drive.

Included Software
Behringer has put together a massive software download 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 right out of the box! You also get more than 100 virtual instruments and 50 FX plug-ins, turning your computer into a complete home-based or mobile recording studio.

FEATURES
  • Low noise, high headroom 5-input 2-bus analog mixer
  • 1 Quality XENYX Mic Preamp
  • High-quality compressors with easy "one-knob" functionality and control LED
  • Built-in stereo USB/Audio Interface to connect directly to your computer
  • Free audio recording, editing and podcasting software plus 150 plug-ins, downloadable at behringer.com
  • Neo-classic "British" 3-band EQs for warm and musical sound
  • 1 post fader FX send per channel for external FX devices
  • Main mix outputs plus separate control room, phones and 2-Track outputs
  • 2-Track inputs assignable to main mix or control room/phones output
  • FX to control room function helps to monitor effect signal via headphones and control room outputs

Small, but practical, order the Q502USB for your next solo gig.

I bought two of these for my audio book narrators (in addition to being a musician of many decades I also own a small publishing company doing e-books, print books and audio books). I was upgrading the equipment for my two female narrators of romance and erotica and bought the Q802 and Q502 USB mixers along with Behringer B1 Condenser microphones for each. This setup works great for recording audio books. The mixer was instantly recognized by laptops running both Windows 7 and 8 and we had the unit integrated with the DAW software in no time. Easy. For audio book narration we don't need a lot of features and bells and whistles, just a simple, easy-to-use, low-noise setup. We recorded several seconds of 'silence' in one of my narrator's closet/sound booth and it WAS silent. My narrators are very happy with the new equipment (even more so because they didn't have to pay for it!). Musician's Friend and their speedy delivery of competitive-priced products comes through again. The built-in Compressor is a nice feature and easy to use for an audio narrator (unlike a pro compressor strip full of knobs and switches). Yea, I'm very happy with this, does what it is supposed to at a fair price.

Read the specs carefully. I still haven't found a way to monitor a recorded track while recording a new one and keep the tracks separate. There are really only 3 mono channels and you only have 5 if 2 are used as stereo inputs. No 'live' effects with the free Audacity recording software and the effects that are applied effect all tracks at once. No individual application of effects.

      So, It is what I expected, notingh more and nothing less. I use this for my home recording studio. It does what it needs to. records with NO LATENCY onto my Adobe Audition software. any after effects I can apply through Adobe, if needed.
      I also use this as a 3 channel mixer for small acoustic gigs with my Digitech Vocalist Live petal. Any vocal effects needed come from the petal.
      It does great for what I use it for.

      Comments about Behringer Xenyx Q502USB Mixer:

      The 3.5mm jack on my MacBook went out so I needed to find a quick and easy play music through the USB port. I used it as a pre-mixer for my Fender Passport during a D.J. gig and was very impressed! It has limited functions but if you need a simple solution for playing or recording through USB this is a great way to go. It also has the option of adding powered speakers onto it if needed. Worth the buy.

        This little gadget is great for soundcheck and a little show or maybe a demo. This has limited functions, but I don't need them much. Just a 3-band EQ would be best. The USB is very nice. The compressor and phantom power are great. I enjoy playing with it and stuff, but quality-wise, I suggest save a little more money.
