Overview

The revolutionary XR12 is a powerhouse 12 input portable/rack-mountable mixer for iPad and Android tablets, and is ideally suited for both live and studio applications, thanks to its four award-winning MIDAS-designed mic preamps, convenient integrated Wi-Fi module for wireless control, plus USB connectivity for file storage, system updates and uncompressed stereo recordings via the USB Stereo Recorder. There are also rack ears and protective bumpers included for added flexibility in your studio and stage applications. The freedom to move around and manipulate all parameters of your mix with the free iOS and PC apps lets you dial in the perfect sound from anywhere in the venue “ or the tracking room.

MIDAS “ The Legend in Sound Quality
Ever since its formation in the 1970s, MIDAS has had a long history of innovation and leadership in the world of audio mixing consoles. Employed by the most famous touring acts and installations worldwide, legendary MIDAS consoles such as the XL4 and Heritage H3000 quickly became industry standards.

MIDAS has earned their impeccable reputation due to their no-compromise approach for audio and build quality and in particular for their Award-winning Mic Preamps which are considered by industry experts as the industry™s best sounding designs. Building on this legacy, the XR12 and PRO Series of Live Mixing Systems continue this great heritage of Award-winning audio quality.

Built-In Tri-Mode Wi-Fi Router
Designed for the ultimate in mobility, the XR12 comes with an integrated Wi-Fi module for direct control of your mixer™s functions “ without the need to setup and configure an external router. The XR12 gives you the freedom to focus on your mix, while allowing you to move about the venue to experience what every part of the audience is hearing. Plus you can adjust live monitor wedges from the artist™s perspective “ or better yet, let them mix their own IEMs and floor monitors via their own tablets.

USB Connectivity and Stereo Recording
The front panel USB type-A connector makes the XR12 not only an amazingly powerful digital mixing solution, but also allows recording your live stereo tracks directly to attached USB flash media or hard drives. Dial in the perfect live mix with effects and zero-latency, while sending a dedicated stereo mix to your thumb drive for recording, or play background music in a break.

Revolutionary Auto-Mixing
When your application calls for a multiple-microphone setup, such as an onstage panel discussion, press conference or courtroom proceeding, etc., it can become a challenge to maintain so many open mics “ and preserve maximum gain and priority for the moderator.

Behringer's X AIR Gain Sharing technology can easily manage fully automated mixes with several live microphones. Based on the legendary Dan Dugan automix system, the XR12™s gain sharing paradigm automatically controls the levels of all selected microphones in real time, without any gating artifacts or noise modulation.

This function dramatically reduces the typical feedback, studio noise and comb filtering challenges that can occur when two, or more mics are in close proximity of each another. X AIR Gain Sharing technology provides a consistent system gain structure, even when multiple speakers are talking at the same time.

4 Onboard X32 Effects Engines
Equipped with the very same FX engines as the X32 Digital Mixing Console, the onboard virtual FX Rack provides access to four true-stereo (8 mono), multi-effects processors including delay, chorus, dynamics “ plus the XR12 can run production-quality, true-stereo reverbs concurrently with 31-band EQ on the main and aux buses, all without the need for any additional hardware.

You can select any combination of high-end simulations of legendary studio effects, such as the Lexicon 480L and PCM70, as well as the EMT250 and Quantec QRS reverbs. Onboard processing means your computer doesn™t have to do the heavy lifting during a mixing session with DAW plugins as the XR12 has a whole studio of FX under its hood.

Custom-designed, and physically modeled after some of the most iconic and sought after processors, all effects run inside the low-latency environment of the X32 mix engine, ensuring flawless performance, flexible routing and the end of cable faults forever.

High-End FX Racks at Your Finger Tips
The XR12 incorporates a vast collection of high-end FX racks available at a moment's notice. These effects emulate some of the most popular and sought after audio-processing effects coveted by top mixing engineers around the world. Choose from over 20 effects each fully capable performers in both live and studio environments.

100-Band RTA for all Channel/ Bus EQ™s
The XR12 includes a high-resolution 100-band Real Time Analyzer (RTA), with full Bar and Spectrograph views. This high-resolution RTA displays the audio energy distribution in 100 frequency bands over time “ capturing a sonogram window of a full 10 seconds.

Switch between the Large RTA view, displaying any available signal in full screen resolution, or the Combined RTA view shown above each of the channel and bus EQ curves “ and see the results of your filtering choices. Additionally, the RTA can be displayed on top of the 31-band graphic EQs in the Main LR or Aux buses.

Uncompromised Channel Processing
The XR12 allows you to achieve the same incredible level of EQ finesse as the award-winning X32 thanks to its 100-band Real Time Analyzer, which is built into every input channel and bus EQ. Visual feedback built into the control app allows you to see and make fast, surgical adjustments to frequencies in need of a boost or a cut.

Every input channel also features Low-Cut, 4-band fully parametric EQ and the same Gate and Compressor dynamics suite found in the X32 “ with one very special addition; you can choose either Expert or Simple functionality. In Expert mode, you can drill down and get your hands on every nuance of your dynamics. Or, if you'e more of the plug-and-play type, Simple mode lets you either select from one of 4 carefully optimized presets “ or load your own channel templates. Add to this 40-Bit, floating-point DSP and you'll experience virtually "unlimited" dynamic range with no internal overload and near-zero overall latency.

In addition to the Main L/R bus for Front of House, 6 Aux buses are provided for dialing in the perfect monitor mixes, or creating a dedicated mix for your USB stereo recording “ complete with inserts, dynamics, and either a 6-band parametric EQ or 31-band graphic EQ. And if all these outstanding EQ options put a smile on your face, you™ll love it even more when we tell you that 100-band RTAs are available for these, too!

MIDI In/Out for Live Performance Controllers
The physical MIDI I/O port on the XR12 mixer can also be used for connecting external MIDI controllers, such as our X-TOUCH or B-CONTROL products, for dynamically controlling channel level, muting and panorama adjustments during your performance. And since the full-featured XR12 also supports the Mackie Control protocol, you easily apply comprehensive remote editing and parameter adjustments via any compatible MIDI devices.

X AIR EDIT (PC/Mac/Linux)
If your application requires a computer for BEHRINGER X AIR mixer remote control, the X AIR EDIT was made just for you. Simply copy and launch the free software with your computer, connect to the mixer via its built-in Ethernet (LAN) connector using a Cat 5 cable (max. 100 m length) “ and all X AIR mixer functions are instantly mirrored on your computer screen. Since your PC screen is larger than the one on your telephone, X AIR EDIT allows you to open and scale more app windows, such as for routing or FX editing “ letting you decide how much information you need at a glance. All touch screens are supported, or you can use a mouse to adjust your physical mixer™s settings. You can even control multiple mixers remotely from a single computer, or create several strategically placed computer stations to control the same mixer. With X AIR EDIT, your PC, Linux or Mac computer becomes your virtual mixer “ both live and in the studio!

X AIR for iPad
Front of House is wherever you and your iPad are “ thanks to the new X AIR app for iPad. Simply download the free app to your iPad, set the BEHRINGER X AIR mixer to Access Point mode and connect your iPad to the XR12 network that will show up. After launching the X AIR app, select the mixer image, and all of your X AIR mixer™s settings can now be adjusted directly from your iPad. You can save your favorite scenes, and load previously stored scenes and presets to/from your iPad or customize your channel layout “ all with the support of innovative drag ™n™ drop functionality.

Download the free X AIR App for iPad from the Apple App Store.

X AIR for Android
Designed specifically for all Android mobile devices (2.2 or higher), which includes tablets and smartphones, the app can be used in one of two modes: full access mixing mode; or bound to a specific aux bus for creating personal monitor mixes remotely on BEHRINGER X AIR mixers. Using this free and easy to learn app, each performer can use their Android device to dial-in the perfect personal IEM or wedge monitor mix, without having to consult the audio engineer for assistance. With the X AIR MIX App for Android, personal monitor mixing just got a whole lot more personal “ both live and in the studio! But it doesn™t stop there “ in full access mixing mode, the app provides control over all channel processing including the RTA overlay, effects editing, storing/loading scenes or presets, and much more “ whether you'e running a 12" tablet or a 5" smartphone.

Comments about X AIR XR12 Digital Rackmount Mixer:

I bought this to use as my onstage keyboard mixer and to check it out before buying the 18 channel version for a full PA. I couldn't be more satisfied. This is a big-boy mixer with all the bells and whistles.

    Comments about Behringer X AIR XR12 Digital Rackmount Mixer:

    I have had this unit for over a month and have gigged with it over a dozen times. I'll start off by saying: Be ready to do a little research on You-Tube to learn the functionality. The manual that this comes with is fairly worthless.. That being said, there is a ton of tutorials online that can get you what you need. Once you have gotten past that, this unit is AWESOME. I play mainly solo acoustic, duo and trio shows shows. This has plenty of input options and some configurable output options. I haven't had any issues with connectivity so far, and that's also something you can configure. The digital effects sound very good, and the fact that I can walk to the back of the room and do a sound check with my tablet is worth it's weight in gold. Another great feature is being able to record to USB. I've recorded a handful of shows and have gotten some great quality recordings. You can set up scenes for different band set ups (ex. when I do a duo or trio) so when we get set up, the mixer is already set. There is still a ton of things I haven't even gotten to on this unit, but I'm sure I'll get there with time. So far, I love it.. I wasn't so sure right of the bat because of the lack of instruction had me going in circles a little, but just go to You-Tube and type in Behringer X Air and a ton of tutorials come up. It took me a few days to get really comfortable, but now I love it, and would struggle going back to a regular mixer. This unit really is about 10 pieces of equipment in one. I'm glad the guy at GC talked me into it.

      Comments about Behringer X AIR XR12 Digital Rackmount Mixer:

      I have experience with running live sound and do a good bit of studio recording. The XR12 Xair is great for small gigs. I'm running this off an iPad, and the ability to wander around the venue to mix is very liberating. My only gripe would be the lack of detailed instructions. That being said, once you get the hang of working with the app, it's great!

      Comments about Behringer X AIR XR12 Digital Rackmount Mixer:

      I've used this 2 out of 3 times with limited success in a fairly busy bar. What Behringer doesn't tell you until you research it online AFTER having issues…is that you need to use the laptop app to setup a secure network. Attempting to use this ANYWHERE with an open network is pointless. People will assume they can connect to the internet on their phones and jam it up. After having successfully connected and tweaked at home with no problem..at my first gig with it, I couldn't connect to it at all. No connection…no mixing. Luckily there was another mixer there I was able to use. Talk about stressful and frustrating, though. Even after creating a secure network, the internal router simply isn't powerful enough to use reliably in a crowded area. The connection drops frequently and the app freezes and lags constantly. So you have to hope you can connect long enough to get a mix up and not need to make changes after. Even muting the main outs is a gamble. If you mute on break and then lose the connection and can't reconnect…you're screwed. I plan on trying to use it with an external dual band router asap. Kinda lame to have to buy a better router just to use it reliably. Sounds great. Lot of options. Just be leery of the wifi situation and have a backup plan.

        Comments about Behringer X AIR XR12 Digital Rackmount Mixer:

        Like others said, it is a bit confusing when first using, but when you get used to, this is a must for all musicians. There are plenty of head rooms for mic pre-amp, decent FX, and the most beautiful is RTA display that is helpful to control mic feedback. The reason I took 1 star out is due to Ipad app is suck, it takes out connection of android device every time you log in and too much laggings. Though android app is the best, very responsive and more options. It is sad that I now start to say goodbye to my beloved Mackie CFX to go with this.
