Behringer QX1002USB 10-Channel Mixer
Unassuming as its size may make it appear, the Behringer Xenyx QX1002USB mixer is the gear equivalent to a magician’s hat that just keeps revealing how much is stored inside of it. To start things off, the unit contains two Xenyx mic preamps that are comparable to some stand-alone preamps, helping to make signal sound clearer and cleaner. The Xenyx’s compressors employ the popular one-knob functionality that takes a lot of the guesswork out of mixing as you simply twist and go. The unit also features neo-classic British 3-band EQs that can make your signal sound more warm and musical. To top it all off, there are 100 presets inside this mixer (courtesy of a 24-bit Klark Teknik FX processor) for adding reverb, flanger, delay, chorus, pitch shifter, and more to your audio. This piece of gear can also double as a stereo USB/audio interface to link up directly with your computer.
