Two New Small Format Live/Recording Mixers Expand the Company’s Popular XENYX Series

Bothell, WA – MUSIC Group announces two new premium small format live/recording mixers, the UFX1204 and UFX1604, set to join the renowned BEHRINGER XENYX series.

With a built-in 16 x 4 USB/FireWire audio interface, the UFX1204 and UFX1604 also include a multi-track recorder to record up to 12 or 16 channels respectively to any USB device. Ideal for live recording or as the center of your home recording setup, these new mixers allow you to record your performance to a USB stick or your computer. The transport section also functions as a control surface for your computer-based DAW via MIDI.

These robust 4-Bus mixers feature the XENYX UFX series signature attributes such premium-grade XENYX mic preamps, “one-knob” compressors, British EQs and 24-bit onboard effects within a compact form factor.

Each mono channel features XENYX mic preamps for sonic clarity and high-headroom performance and 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 and 2 so you can connect acoustic, electric and bass guitars without the need for an external DI box.

On the UFX1204, mono channels benefit from BEHRINGER’s “British” 3-band EQ with semi-parametric Mid control, allowing users to dial in the frequency center and boost or cut by as much as 15 dB. For the UFX1604 model, channel EQ is an expanded 4-band version with sweepable Hi and Low Mids, providing even more tonal optimization.

Both models feature individually switchable 48V phantom power on all mono channels so they can be used with top-of-the-line studio condenser microphones. Stereo channels on both also support balanced and unbalanced 1/4″ Line connections and 4-band “British” EQs. All channels feature 4 Aux Sends, switchable Pre/Post FireWire Sends, Mute/Alt 3-4 functionality and super-smooth, long-wearing faders.

BEHRINGER’s “one-knob” compression comes standard and is available on all mono channels. Easy to operate, even for entry-level users, dialing in the perfect amount of compression for instruments and vocals is a breeze, creating powerful mixes with punch and clarity.

The UFX1204 features a high-quality 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. The UFX1604 is equipped with two of these powerful effects engines for even more versatility. Both models boast an extensive Talkback section with onboard Mic, mono channel Inserts, 4 stereo Aux Returns, a plethora of output options, plus free software downloads and more.
