Sonically Superior Mic Preamps
The Xenyx UFX1204 gets its name from our legendary, high headroom Xenyx mic preamps, which have been praised by audio engineers all over the world. These state-of-the-art mic pres represent a major step in the evolution of audio technology – and they can easily hold their own, even when compared to the most expensive stand-alone mic preamps. Xenyx preamps off er a staggering 130 dB of dynamic range, with a bandwidth that extends from below 10 Hz to well above 200 kHz. Armed with these outstanding mic preamps, the Behringer Xenyx UFX1204 provides such transparent, crystal-clear performance you just might think someone upgraded your mics while you weren’t looking.
Ask professional sound engineers what their favorite piece of external processing gear is and the majority response will be virtually unanimous – dynamic compression. What is compression? We’re glad you asked. Compression essentially 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 find challenging. Our “one-knob” compression is available on all mono channels and is easy to operate, even for entry-level users. With this one knob, you can easily dial in the perfect amount of compression for instruments and vocals, creating powerful mixes with punch and clarity. This is indeed a rare feature for products in this class – but standard on the Behringer Xenyx UFX1204 – 12-input premium analog mixer with effects.
Sublimely Musical British EQ
The British consoles of the 1960s and ‘70s changed the sound of rock and roll – without them the British Invasion might not have happened. Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world. The channel EQ on your UFX1204 mixer 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 Behringer Xenyx UFX1204 benefit from our highly musical “British” 3-band EQ with semi-parametric Mid controls, allowing you to dial in the ideal frequency centers and boost or cut by as much as 15 dB – for incredibly-accurate tonal optimization. All mic channels also feature individually-switchable, true +48 V phantom power, so you can use top-of-the-line studio condenser microphones – a feature virtually unheard of on a mixer in this class!
