Armed with premium microphone preamps and robust feature sets typically reserved for more expensive consoles, this next-generation XENYX Q1002USB mixer can handle your live gigs and provide the state-of-the-art tools to make stunning, professional-quality recordings.
The ultra-compact XENYX Q1002USB mixer’s 10 Inputs (2 mic, 4 stereo) allow you to effortlessly achieve premium- quality sound, thanks to 2 onboard studio-grade XENYX Mic Preamp and ultra-musical “British” channel EQ. And our easy-to-use “one-knob” compressors provide total dynamic control for the ultimate in punch and clarity, while respecting all the power and emotion you pack into every note. Add to this, the sweet forgiveness of our British-style EQ and superb ease of use – and the Q1002USB becomes an incredibly versatile mixer for your live performances.
But the XENYX Q1002USB isn’t just designed to handle your live gigs; it also provides the state-of-the-art tools you need to make stunning, professional-quality recordings. Along with its built-in USB/audio interface, the Q1002USB mixer comes with all the recording and editing software needed to turn your computer system into your own personal high- performance home recording studio.
The XENYX Q1002USB also includes one knob compression.
Ask professional sound engineers what their favorite piece of external processing gear is and the response will be virtually unanimous – dynamic compression.
What’s compression you ask? 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 “one-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.
Sonically Superior Mic Preamps
All XENYX mixers have one thing in common; great-sounding, high headroom XENYX mic preamps. These state-of-the-art mic preamps are a tremendous step in the evolution of audio technology— and they can easily hold their own, even when compared to expensive, boutique-style mic preamps. XENYX preamps offer a staggering 130 dB of dynamic range with a bandwidth that extends from below 10 Hz to well above 200 kHz. As a result, XENYX mixers provide such transparent, crystal-clear performance that you just might think someone upgraded your microphones while you weren’t looking.
Sweet 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 even happened. Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world. The channel EQ on your XENYX 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 equalisers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.
There was a time when the recording process called for lots of specialised gear, which meant the average musician had to buy time at a recording studio—and that time was expensive! Now 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? That’s where the XENYX Q1002USB comes in. 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. Which brings us to software…
