Boasting a stellar feature set that includes premium-grade XENYX mic preamps, œone-knob compressors, British EQs and 24-bit onboard FX, BEHRINGER UFX Series mixers sound great and are extremely affordable. They are light-years beyond your average mixer, thanks to their built-in 16 x 4 USB/FireWire Interface and 16-Track USB-Recorder. Imagine being able to record your next live gig directly to a USB stick or your PC/Mac computer”and the UFX' transport section can even function as a remote control center for your computer-based DAW via MIDI.
From input to output, BEHRINGER UFX Series mixers are all about functionality, ease of use and ultimate versatility. Mono channels feature legendary XENYX mic preamps, praised the world over by professional audio engineers for their sonic clarity and high-headroom performance. Mono channels accept both balanced XLR and 1/4" TRS, as well as unbalanced 1/4" TS connections. A Line/Hi-Z switch is also provided on channels 1 & 2 so you can connect acoustic, electric and bass guitars without the need for an external DI box.
Built-in 16-Track Recorder
UFX Series mixers make it easy to capture your live performances or home recording sessions. Just plug a USB stick into the rear panel, hit the record button on the 16-track recorder control interface”then relax and enjoy the show. When you get home from the gig, you can even use control any compatible computer based DAW directly from your UFX mixer via MIDI.
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. The channel EQ on the XENYX mixers is based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to imbue signals with incredible warmth and detailed musical character. Even when applied generously, these equalizers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.
Mono channels on the UFX1204 benefit from the highly musical œBritish 3-band EQ with semi-parametric Mid control, allowing you to dial in the frequency center and boost or cut by as much as 15 dB. Channel EQ on the UFX1604 is an expanded 4-band version with sweepable Hi and Low Mids, providing even more tonal optimization. Both models feature individually switchable, true +48 V phantom power on all mono channels so you can use top-of-the-line studio condenser microphones”a feature virtually unheard of on a mixer in this class!
Stereo channels support balanced and unbalanced 1/4" Line connections and the 4-band œBritish EQs are provided for tonal adjustment. All channels feature 4 Aux Sends, switchable Pre/Post FireWire Sends, Mute/Alt 3-4 functionality and super-smooth, long-wearing 100 mm logarithmic-taper faders (UFX1204 only for MAIN MIX fader, channel faders are 60 mm).
What's a Compressor?
Compression limits the dynamic range of a signal, lowering the level of loud sounds and turning up softer sounds to achieve sonic balance. But applying compression is a delicate art that many novice, and even intermediate, sound techs have difficulty mastering. Behringer's œone-knob compression is available on all mono channels and is easy to operate, even for entry-level users. Now you can easily dial in the perfect amount of compression for instruments and vocals, creating powerful mixes with punch and clarity. Behringer's œone-knob compressors come standard on each and every XENYX QX Series USB mixer.
FX and Functionality
The UFX1204 features a very high-end stereo FX processor with 16 editable presets that include reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, phaser, multi-effects and Tap function for the ultimate in live performance enhancement. And because you can never have too much of a good thing, the UFX1604 is armed with not one, but two of these powerful effects engines for even more versatility.

Comments about Behringer Xenyx UFX1204:
great features that stand alone in this price range. the only con is I have had so much trouble trying to figure things out. I'm mainly talking about the usb recording. in usb to harddrive mode it records everything straight through regardless of fader or solo/mute position on tracks 1-12. 13-16 are the effects and main mix. it gets tricky on the usb to mac/pc function. the only thing that changes the actual input on tracks 1-12 is the eq. if you need any automation recorded into the daw this unit cannot do that. that being said this is exactly what I need coming out of my ipad with 8 analogue inputs into this mixer back into the mac (using analog effects). and it is ipad friendly to record to. so if you are at a show and want to record direct to a hardrive or ipad this is perfect. again the faders are only on the main mix out.
