When it™s time to get down to the business of recording or mixing, the last thing you™ll want to do is crawl under your desk and run cables. The CONTROL1USB from Behringer gets you off your knees, putting Master Volume, Talkback, Source selection and Monitor control right at your fingertips. Now you can choose from up to three sets of active studio monitors and four different stereo input sources to create powerful, custom monitor mixes. Plus the built-in Talkback mic lets you communicate directly with the talent.

Sometimes bigger is better
Small knobs make for low precision. Conversely, the bigger the knob is, the higher the precision. Think of a control knob as a circle. On a small circle/knob the distance from one degree to the next is very small, making it difficult to dial-in perfection. On our really big knob, the distance between degrees of the circle is much larger, allowing you to make high-precision adjustments with ease. CONTROL1USB helps you set levels fast and accurately when it comes to your mastering project.

Built-in USB Connectivity
The built-in USB audio interface lets you connect directly to your computer and its digital library, creating the ultimate sound source control center”no additional hardware required.

More Monitor Options
In the golden age of recording, engineers had to make the mix sound great in just two places, the studio and the car. When you consider the acoustic environments and the equipment used in each, it™s not as easy as it sounds. Today™s computer-based recordings have to sound great in even more situations, such as MP3 players, podcasts and other bass-challenged systems”so experiencing your mix through as many speaker systems as possible is more essential than ever. CONTROL1USB lets you switch between up to three pairs of studio monitors, add a subwoofer, listen through vintage-style small monitors, or any other combination at the mere press of a button.

Your input is valued
The CONTROL1USB has enough connectivity to handle just about anything you'e likely to plug in. Four stereo inputs allow you to connect a CD player, MP3 player, computer/ DAW”and even a turntable, thanks to the built-in high-end RIAA preamp. Plus you can connect keyboards, drum machines or anything else you™d like to put through your monitors.
All-Access Backstage Pass
CONTROL1USB™s rear panel provides three separate Monitor Outputs with individual Level controls; a computer/ DAW Stereo Output; 2-Track A and B Stereo Outs with Level switches; a Studio Out with Level; Phones Out with Level switch; 4 Stereo Source Ins with Level control; a computer/DAW Mix Input with Level control, with one selectable as a Phono Input for your turntable. You get all this I/O capability plus USB connectivity.

Let™s Communicate
No need for a clunky desk stand and an external mic to talk to the guys in the isolation booth. CONTROL1USB™s high-quality, built-in microphone is just a button push away, so you can save your mics for the drum kit. The onboard headphone amplifier section lets you connect 2 headphones with individual level controls, which should make the next session one of your best.

Comments about Behringer XENYX CONTROL1USB Studio Control & Communication Center:

Ordered this product on 9/13/2015; Back order kept getting pushed back, didn't receive it until 11/2. I had this device for a little over two weeks and it failed. Returned under warranty on 12/19/2015; again on back order. Was told that it should arrive 1/5/2016; called 1/7/2016 and was told back ordered to 2/18/2016. Cancelled my order going to buy something else.
I have work history as an Electronics Engineer and this appears to be a typical production issue, company knows there is a design flaw, but continues to take orders for the product. The failure appears to be a poorly designed switching power supply, sees spikes in the power line and the filter caps and other components spec'd too low to handle the power spikes so they fail. Bad call on Behringer to move forward and continue to sell the product when its not ready for release. They just moved another notch down the ladder of their already borderline reputation.
