At a Glance: Behringer Xenyx X2442USB:sound-quality mic pres Britannic EQ Up the effects
sound-quality mic presHigh headroom and great-sounding Xenyx mic preamps are included with the Behringer Xenyx X2442USB. Modern preamps like these may compete with preamps in consoles that cost much more than the X2442USB. The dynamic range is a mind-blowing 130dB, and the bandwidth spans the subsonic to canine ranges. When your microphones are connected to the X2442USB, you’ll have a greater appreciation for them.
Britannic EQEnglish EQ is used by the Behringer XENYX X2442USB Premium. Why is it the case? Because they caressed your signal rather than jolting it, the EQs on British consoles from the 1970s were wonderfully musical. Finesse is the topic here. These widely desired “holy grail” EQ qualities came about as a result of larger curves, a lower Q, coordinated harmonic phase management, and overall British engineering magic. You could apply the EQ or make significant cuts without causing audio conflict. Happily, Behringer’s X2442USB emulates these lovely EQ (or should we say “equalization”) features. Smashing.
Amplify the FXThe 24-bit dual-engine FX processor from Behringer is featured in their newest model, the Xenyx X2442USB. You receive great-sounding reverb, chorus, flanging, delay, pitch shift, and multi-effects along with 16 editable, studio-grade presets. To adjust the effects to your heart’s delight, use the Parameter control. Even better, you can manually enter time-based functions by tapping the button in rhythm with your music. Live mixing is an art with the Behringer Xenyx X2442USB.
