12-channel USB Mixer with One-knob Compression, 2 Aux Sends, 2 Busses, and 3-band EQ Per Channel
The Behringer Xenyx X1222USB USB mixer makes it easy to mix up to 12 channels of audio at a budget-friendly price. You get six Xenyx mic preamps on the first six channels, plus an additional four stereo channels for line level-sources. Two of the stereo channels also feature XLR jacks. The two-bus design lets you route signals to an alternate source, while two aux sends per channel further enhance your routing options. The X1222USB helps you sound your best too, with one-knob compression and 3-band EQs with sweepable mids. A 7-band graphic EQ lets you really dial in the sound you are looking for, and it can be set to either the mains or monitors. The FBQ feedback detection system helps you identify the offending frequencies so you can tame them, and the XPQ 3D stereo surround effect gives your mixes a huge, room-filling sound. Best of all, you can easily record the stereo output of the X1222USB to your computer via USB – it even comes with a suite of free recording and podcasting software.
