Behringer XENYX X1204 USB

Behringer Xenyx X1204 USB - 12ch mixer with 60mm faders, 4 mic inputs with 48V phantom power and 75Hz low cut, compressor per mic channel, internal 24-bit FX processor with 16 Presets, 2 stereo inputs, complete 3-band EQ, with USB interface, 2 aux (pre/post), peak LED meter and mute on each channel, 2-track in/out, XLR main out, Alt 3-4 outputs, internal power supply, incl. 19" rackmount. Dimensions (HxWxD): 97x270x328 mm. Weight: 2,8 kg, incl. energyXT2.5 Compact Musik-Produktions-Software for Windows XP, Vista (32-bit), Mac OSX, Linux

So what you have here is the mic pre's from the SX-series non-usb mixers but with a single non-sweep mid eq. You can send a copy of the Main-mix output signal via USB to your PC for recording, and return a stereo playback signal which can be routed into the main mix or to the headphone/monitor out. Additionaly you get a basic compressor built into the 4 mono mic channels.

The problem comes with recording on this mixer... Sure you can route a bunch of stuff thru the mixer inputs and route them to the main L/R OUT main mix bus which feeds the stereo USB send to record the main mix output. But the problem like with the larger version X-USB series mixers is playback routing. Studying the manual and hi-res images of the board I can't see any way you can playback the recording via the USB return, and monitor that signal while simultaneously recording an overdub.... That's because the USB return can be routed to the main L/R mix bus as one option, but that's no good because then the playback is being sent out back into the PC along with whatever it is you are trying to overdub on top of the playback... The main headphone/monitor socket can choose it's source from: the main L/R bus or the alt 3/4 bus or the USB return... so I guess it may be possible to route the mixer stereo out to the PC recorder via USB and then monitor 'thru' the PC by choosing the USB return as the source for the monitor output... fiddly tho and entirely dependent on a good fast low-latency USB send/return path.

So really this mixer is good for capturing a recording of whatever is being passed thru the board, but recording overdubs may be extremely problematic, especialy for noobs unless they get to grips with monitoring using an 'off-tape' style of recording/playback/monitoring... imo again, Behringer have missed a trick... if they had simply added a button to route the USB return into the AUX-1 bus it would be a better board.
