|Mixing, Eq, Noise Gate, Compression - All in One!
||Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
|I went into the store to buy an Alesis or maybe a Allen and Heath mixer, but I purchased a Behringer xr12 instead. I sure am glad I did. It has a bit of a learning curve because all of the mixing is done on a PC, Mac, iPad, or Android tablet. But it has several awesome features which make it stand out:|
* 2 Aux out. I can send my mic to the radio on an aux out and leave stereo LR for my PC. (No Aux out on the Alesis. That is the main reason I was thinking about the Allen and Heath.)
* Eq, compression and noise gating on each input. No need to add a separate unit. The EQ is 4 or 6 band. Each band can be parametric or several other eq types. (The Alesis only has one band of parametric and only on a few channels.)
* A 100 band spectrum analyzer so you can see your signal are you are shaping it. As well as a 31 band graphic equalizer.
Amazing they pack this all in for less the $250. I don't know why you would use any other mixer or the W2IHY equipment. I am sure they are great, but the xr12 does the same thing in less space for less money.
