BEHRINGER MX2442A

Behringers 24 into 4 sub's into two stereo mixer.. a commonly owned model, lots around s/h.... just to say there is some contention about the reliability of some Behringer power supplies or at least power getting onto wrong busses on the mixer or whatever faults on some models.... I can't say how widespread that is, but there is some talk about it around... but if it works ok it's a nice mixer for the prices you can get 'em for .... your personal user comments are thus appreciated .. you can add 'em at the end of this page...

behringers bigger mixers come with a rackmount 19" pwer supply, This model has it....

The MX2442A gives you 20 actual channel strips... configured as 16 mono channels with inserts and mic/line inputs... and 4 stereo channels with line-inputs & inserts making 20 strips in total.... the masters have inserts too... all inputs are balanced... you got solo buttons on pretty much everyhting, and there's a nominal Stereo 2_Track input with routing to main mix or mon-mix & headphones...



16 mono + 4 stereo (8) = 24 total ... hence the MX24/4/2....



There's 4 sub-groups to which any or all 20 channel strips can be assigned... the 4 subs have dedicated mixer out sockets as usual, and do have inserts as mentiuoned.... There is also 2 Aux returns, each one stereo, as far as i know these can be routed to sub-groups....... all channels have mute buttons

6 auxiliary SENDS per channel

  • two pre-fader sends (1 & 2)
  • four pre/post switchable sends (3 - 6)



    The EQ:

    3-band EQ with semi-parametric mid-band and sweep area of 100 Hz to 8 kHz.

    The stereo channels give you four fixed frequency bands: 80 Hz, 500 Hz, 3 kHz and 12 kHz. With a full 15 dB of boost or attenuation.

    low-cut filter:



    A steep-ish (18 dB/octave) filter at 75 Hz, helps to roll off low-frequency noise without taking away from the low-mids of the actual sound as a wider slope would... it's a nice addition...



    all in all a fully featured desk... lots of in's .. plenty of outs to feed whetever, and mucho amounts of Aux send power.... Any users passing thru, i'd like to know if the 2 Aux-returns can be routed thru into a sub group/mix,... I beleive they can do that on this mixer... Well, they had a ruff reputation ride with power and breakdowns on some models... in my limited experience of them, they look nice, controls feel reasonably robust and smooth, well laid out... sound ok... they are also cheap s/h... lots of inputs for the larger studio and tons of sends for sound-sculpting with outboard.... anyways... a commonly available larger mixer ideal for a bigger project studio.... experiences please....

    ok-ish desk...in my opinion go for a Mackie but i'm using these at college as well as the mackie's and we usually fight for the mackie. still, it does the job, the thing i find annoying about the eurodesk is that you can get some with a VU meter screen that fits along the top of the deskand if you need to unplug or check the connections/cables at the back then the screen proves to be in the way and very annoying. Anyhow, if your a student and poor, this'll do but in my opinion not the best

    We have been using an mx2442a for about three years and found it to perform well. For the past 6 months or so we have noticed a 6db difference in output level between left and right. We simply crank the master up 6db. But I'm a techo and its driving me mad so I'm about to take itout of service ( it's in use almost every day for one thing or another) and do a little investigation. Any other techs out there who have opened these little suckers up with similar problems. I would love to hear from you. .... By the way I don't have a circuit, only the block diagram, so I'll have to run from experience a bit. Email me ... Ross.

    I need help locating a copy of the Seperate View Sheet that was included with the original manual. It is the graphic layout with the numbered controls that corrosponds with the written manual that I do have. On the list of Manual Contents it is item 1.3. If anyone can
    provide me a copy it would be greatly appreciated.

    Purchased used and broken... $100.00
    Noise pots. Loose channels due to defective switches.
    The switches are a mess. Always loosing channels.
    BUT THE SOUND , THE PUNCH IS FANTASTIC..... a real british sound clear loud. THIS copy of the markie equivalent is great sounding board. BUT POOR workmanship on the unit. Still have it and use it every day. I just got a custom to the switchs and the defective channels that came with the board 4 years ago. Still on the look out for the large model in good working condition.

    We have one that did that and then became intermittent on that channel.
    I repaired it as I too am a techo. It was the ribbon cable that connects the main mixer board up to the connector board. Very cheap crimp connector was used on the ribbon cable. I bought some good connectors from RS and re crimped it. Been good ever since.

    Recently had the power supply stolen (was stored in separate rack!) Behringer dealers say the mixer has been discontinued. Can anyone tell me how if there's any other way of powering it?

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I have bought a pair of Behranger B300 speakers and have gone through repairs and circuit boards are stripping off. I am keen to get a pair of complete circuit boards to replace the current pair to have my two B/B300 back online. Please need you assistance to lead to correct shop that I can arrange for the ordering of two circuit boards. I look forward to hear from anyone of yours.

    I am very much keen on behranger stuff and if that is anything that would discourage me. I am using the pair for our Church Programmes.

    Thank you!

    Regards
