The Behringer XENYX Q1202USB 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 Q1202USB mixer comes with enough recording and editing software to turn your computer into a complete recording studio. The largest of the XENYX Q Series, The XENYX Q1202USB is built for versatility and tone, and is equally at home at your live gig or in the studio. This compact mixer provides 4 mono channels with phantom-powered XENYX mic preamps, neo-classic 3-band British-style EQ, plus 4 stereo channels.
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.
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.
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.

We just setup a recording studio in relatively small space (14'x16'). After a week of internet research, a trip to my local music store and a trip GC, I ordered the q1202usb in store and had it shipped to my house. I had it two days later. It was a little smaller than I had expected but is very straightforward and does what we need it to do. The built in usb interface and number of inputs was what sold it for me. Most usb interfaces on the market cost more than this whole mixer! Plus, the built in interface is able to record and do playback. A few other things that I think should be mentioned: The software that supposedly comes with this, is actually all just free downloads that you can get via the behringer website. This mixer has no on/off switch. I just plug it into a power strip with a switch, separately from my computer setup. The usb interface is definitely plug and play. However, the sound quality of the recordings with my computers stock usb audio driver was not great. Good, but not great. I downloaded the behringer audio driver and am very impressed. If you are using this for podcasts, it's not a big deal. We are recording lots of over dubs with many instruments and voice tracks. I would definitely recommend getting this. Also, this mixer does technically have 12 inputs but they count each side (l & r) of the stereo inputs separately. So, really it is 8 channels. More than enough to run a live setup. And last, the manual that comes in the box is not very good. If you go to the behringer website you can get the full version. All and all, I would recommend this mixer. In fact, I would recommend that GC carry this in the store. For the price and functionality it cannot be beat.
