Premium 5-Input Mixer with XENYX Mic Preamp and USB/Audio Interface

Need a handy little mixer for the boardroom, or one you can grab with your laptop on the way out the door? Or maybe you don’t want to give up valuable desktop real estate to a large mixer? The XENYX 302USB is ideally suited for a small home studio or the on-the-go recording enthusiast. At approximately 4 inch long and 5 inch wide (117 x 135 mm), the XENYX 302USB features one of our state-of-the-art, phantom powered XENYX Mic Preamps, an XLR & ¼ inch combination input and a stereo USB/Line channel – plus a dedicated 2-Track input. And since the XENYX 302USB can be powered directly via your laptop’s USB socket, it’s the perfect portable mixer for podcasting and impromptu recording! As a bonus, the ultra-compact 302USB comes with all the recording and editing software needed to turn your computer system into a complete, high-performance home or portable recording studio.

Sonically Superior Mic Preamp

The XENYX 302USB gets its name from our legendary, high headroom XENYX mic preamps, which have been praised by audio engineers all over the world. These state-of-the-art mic pres represent a major step in the evolution of audio technology – and they can easily hold their own, even when compared to the most expensive stand-alone mic preamps. XENYX preamps offer a staggering 130 dB of dynamic range, with a bandwidth that extends from below 10 Hz to well above 200 kHz. Armed with these outstanding mic preamps, the XENYX 302USB provides such transparent, crystal-clear performance you just might think someone upgraded your mics while you weren’t looking.


Sublimely Musical British EQ

The British consoles of the 1960s and ‘70s changed the sound of rock and roll – without them the British Invasion might not have happened. Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world. The channel EQ on our XENYX mixers is based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to imbue signals with incredible warmth and detailed musical character. Even when applied generously, these equalizers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.

Customer Reviews

Perfect for recording vocals or an instrument.
Alex Novotny
Meaning computer sound card mic inputs do boost the mic volume signal, but nearly enough, even with the sound card's mic volume levels at maximum.

It's a great way to get into the world of sound without spending a lot more money.

I've been playing around with my new Behringer XENYX 302USB Mixer and so far my impressions are positive.

I was nervous about buying it because there were no reviews at all, so I opened the box carefully and took out only the 302, using my own cable and on-line documentation. That way, if I had to return it, packing it back up would be easy.

I use Audacity (with a single core, Pentium 4 PC running XP Pro) to record, and the program recognized the 302 (as USB codex), no problem.

One thing I wanted to do is record from an iPod Touch 4G to Audacity, then play that Audacity track back and record another track against it from the iPod. I used a mono cable that is 1/4 inch on one end (plugged into the mic jack of the 302) and 1/8 inch on the other (plugged into the headphone jack of the iPod).

I used an app called Chordbot to play a progression on the iPod, which was recorded through the 302 into Audacity. I didn't care that the track was mono, but if I wanted stereo, I could have used the line input on the 302 with RCA cables going to an 1/8th inch stereo plug.

Once my chord progression was recorded on an Audacity track, I played that back by using an RCAs to 1/8 inch plug to connect the line input on the 302 to the headphone jack of the computer. By pushing the red button on the 302, which selects input from the USB (the computer), and the black button next to it, which sends the signal to the headphones, I could hear the Audacity track playing as I recorded a new track, this time using an app called Thumbjams on the iPod.

It worked very well. No hiss or other unwanted noise present.

The 302 assumes (incorrectly, in my case) that I want to hear the mic input through the earphones as I'm recording. I don't.

PROS:
* Small. Easy to take with you or set on a small shelf.
* If using USB, does not need external power supply. Very convenient.
* Easy-to-use, accessible controls.
* Pre-amp power, works well with condenser studio mikes.
* Plug & play with Windows 8. Didn't have to install any kind of driver.
* Variety of input options. Dual track with low/high volume sliders.
* LEDs make it easy to tell whether in the green or red range. Easy to adjust.
* Awesome for those who need a mini-mixer-- and costs the same as a USB-based preamp-only device.
* Free shipping-- gotta like that

CONS:
* Only one power setting, 15v. That may not be enough for some, but works great with my studio mike.
* Line In / USB buttons somewhat confusing, non-intuitive. However the manual shows exact settings for computer use.
* As with other low-end Behringer mixers has a bit of a hiss that one has to balance out. Can take some fiddling to overcome it.
* It's pretty easy to overpower the computer's input and cause distortion. Start the sound levels at zero and slowly bring them up until it sounds good.

NOTES:
I purchased this for use with my studio mike, which I hadn't been able to use with my computer due to pre-amp power needs. Plugged it in, worked first time, no problems.

This unit is very sensitive. If used with a decent mike can pick up background noises from across a room. With a bit of tweaking, is fine for studio work. I use it for guitar/voice solo live Internet music shows.

Overall, I'm quite pleased with the unit. The only reason I give it 4 stars rather than 5 is because it isn't perfect... but then it's only fifty bucks.

I use this guy primarily with garage band as a simple guitar interface. It works perfectly! It's very intuitive and can be set up in minutes. My requirements for quality and features are pretty low as I am not a professional recording engineer, but I haven't noticed any poor quality sound. I've used it with Reason in Windows and GarageBand in OS X and it's very easy to use. Windows requires manual driver installation.

I use this unit to interface between my studio monitors and my Macbook Pro, which it does very well. It is indeed Plug and Play, and works nicely with both Logic Pro, Ableton Live and my Macbook's audio settings. However, be prepared to spend a few minutes figuring out the audio settings on the unit itself in order to get sound recorded into your software.

My major gripe is, I bought the unit after reading "Phantom Powered" in its description, and I was expecting it to work with my AKG condenser mic. Not being a real audio professional, it was an especially confusing process for me, because if you are using the unit's headphone out, you will be able to hear the condenser mic and it'll sound full, even if it's not getting the proper voltage of phantom power, but it won't transfer that fullness to the recorded sound. The label on this product makes you think you're getting true 48v power, and it takes, in my opinion, too much searching to find out that you're really not - it's actually something in the range of 11v to 15v. This seems almost like false advertising.

After getting an external phantom power unit (accomplished for about $20 - Nady SMPS-1X 1-Channel 48V Phantom Power Supply for SCM Series Microphones, I finally was able to record with my condenser mic and it does a great job - clean sound that, with the right setup in Logic (which can take a little effort), doesn't have any delay/latency issues. I haven't gotten it to play totally nice with Ableton yet, but the sound quality is still good.

One more complaint - if you are a sound amateur like me, don't expect the unit to be able to record your electric guitar directly from the instrument.
