Behringer announced today the availability of its Xenyx Q Series USB mixers, bringing a wide range of USB functionalities to consumers at an affordable price. The Q Series comes in configurations ranging from five to 24 inputs, featuring microphone preamps for ultra-low noise, high headroom operation. Select models also have switchable phantom power plus dedicated "wireless-ready" integration that will make them compatible with Behringer's forthcoming ULM series of wireless microphones.
The new mixers feature built-in USB/audio interfaces, Klark Teknik FX engines, and one-knob mono channel compressors. Behringer also offers a downloadable library of free recording and editing software that works on both Macs and PCs.
The Xenyx models feature neo-classic "British" 3-band EQs and a post fader FX send per channel for external FX devices. They also have two-track inputs assignable to main mix or control room/phones outputs.
All models are covered by a three-year limited warranty. Further pricing and availability information is available at
