Anyone out there use any of the 24 channel plus mixers from Behringer? I am tempted to take the plunge and upgrade the current mixer I have for one and was wondering if they are worth the money? Thanks for any feedback in advance. peace

I have the 16 channel, most behringers are all the same components, regardless of number of channels.

ahh gotcha, so pretty much the same pre's on all of the boards and what not eh? How do the pre's sound to you on your board? I am looking for the board upgrade to fall in the mid-line type board. Not exactly an SSL board, but somewhere in the mid from home studio to pro ya know. :)

I have a UB series board that has their IMP series preamps, they are much better than the pres they used to use on the MX series boards. Still, they are not the best in the world, but they sound decent to me.

I've got the MX900, and I love the thing. It is a very thoughtfully engineered board for recording. Twentyfour inputs with mic pres on the "A" side and Twentyfour inputs on the "B" side line in only. The kicker is Twentyfour direct outputs. Fits perfectly with my HD24. Direct ins to each track, and the facility for an instant "quick mix" playback. I really can't find anything about the board that is engineered for cost containment. It is made of good componants and good engineering. With the direct outputs a lot of circuitry is skipped on the way to the recorder in adverse to boards that utilize sub-outs for that purpose. This adds to the sound quality of the board, simply less circuitry to distort the signal. For monitoring purposes while recording there are 8 sub mixes available for custom playback for layering. Very flexable board with tons of routing options. Quite frankly, I don't know any other board as well suited to recording. It hits me as odd in actuality. I don't know anybody that mixes with a board and yet boards are still designed for that purpose. The MX900 is a sweet recording board right down to the talk back, meter bridge and low voltage goosneck light jacks. I would hate to be faced with replacing it with another board.

i have the ub2442fx-pro. i LOVE it. i use it in studio and for live gigs. i have yet to find a reason for its cheap price compared to competitors. The only thing that bothers me is the built in pre's. for live sound they are great, but i run my recordings through external pre's.

I just switched from their 24 x 4 desk to the 32 x 8 and I love it. I have been using the larger desks for years and love em.

Nuff said.

I have the MX-1804. It's very solid and has more than I need for what I do. The only problem, unfortuanately, seems to be the stereo 7-band graphic EQ - it can be noisy, at least if I'm recording, so I shut it off. Other than that, it's a bang-for-the-bucker. AR

I have the MX1002.
Other than the pres being a little noisy,
Not bad at all.
I wish it had more channel inserts though.
