Good little system By:
Sweet little system. Took it right out of the box and hooked it up. For a novice like me i was able to run two mics, electric acoustic guitar and a electric piano to my pa speakers.
Perfect for the hobbyist Dad at home By:
I have a newborn so I don't get to play my instruments through fun loud amps or speakers anymore. So I opted to route my guitars and piano through digital interfaces and through to this mixer. I also have my laptop routed through it so I can play along to things (and practice). Its a great working interface and it really does a great job for my needs.Its small, simple, and seems to be built well.
Awesome little mixer By:
Works perfectly for what I needed !

Excellent For Certain Needs By:
I've been djing for 20 years, I just added bingo to my business and didn't want to drag in everything. This little guy has what I need and I have a small bag and one speaker I bring in for my bingo nights. I hook it up to 1 mic and 1 speaker, although you can hook up 2 speakers to it with 1/4" plugs. As far as the mic imput, if you use an xlr you will get better sound, much louder. If you use a 1/4" you must turn the gain up a lot to get a good sound. I have both mic options but have been using the 1/4" with extra gain and it works just fine. Again, I wouldn't use this for actual dj work, but its great for my musical bingo, I am using it along with my laptop for my music. There is no eq on it, so that part is a little tricky, but my software program on my computer does have an eq and I use that when I need it.If you are looking for a small board for mc work, announcements, or for home use even for karaoke, this will work just fine.It's super lightweight and fits in a small space as its maybe 6-8" wide.Very pleased with it!
Reliable and small to transport. By:
Nice clean sound and affects.

4.3 / 5

  • 10-Channel mixer with USB and SPX digital effects
  • Featuring studio-grade discrete class-A D-PRE preamps with inverted Darlington circuit - providing fat, natural sounding bass and smooth, soaring highs
  • 3-band EQ and high-pass filters give you maximum control and eliminate unwanted noise, resulting in a cleaner mix
  • 1-Knob compressors allow easy control - resulting in livelier guitars, punchier bass lines, a tighter snare and a cleaner vocal sound
  • MG Series mixers feature a rugged, impact-resistant, powder-coated metal chassis. Equivalent input noise-128 dBu, Residual output noise -102 dBu

Great buy for the money By:
Been using this 2 nights a week for 6 plus months to run karaoke. Bought it specifically because it has both onboard effects and compression on the vocal channels. I might buy another one just to get the variant with faders instead of knobs and keep the knobs as a backup but otherwise I wouldn't go any other way for what I'm doing. 5/5.
This is a great device and it’s packed with features By:
I’ve used older models of Yamaha mixers, but this one really steps it up. I have the comfort of knowing how to use it (from older models) but the effects and the additional gain and voltage selection buttons make this truly great. I was also surprised that I can connect via USB and get a premium sound card for my computer.
Excellent! But careful replacing a USB DAC with this... (MG10XU) By:
So let me start out with a $200 lesson learned: There is no way to allow audio through the USB channel but not through the monitor. I clean up mic input via software (sound floors), but using this as a "sort-of" DAC means I constantly hear everything the mic picks up even though that's not what is recording on the computer. Now, if that is a feature you require, the MG12XU does offer it, but I only found that out after extreme research after purchasing the MG10XU and procrastinating on setting it up for far too long.Now, luckily I still get the intended use out of the board because I bought it to use with a second PC for streaming and will use a Scarlet 2i2 for my gaming computer. So just be careful if you are looking for a fully-featured board to replace your DAC (and you don't want to hear every little thing your mic picks up), you need to go up to the MG12XU for that. Just be aware that the MG12XU is MUCH MUCH larger than the two additional channels would make you think.The board itself is phenomenal. Running my mic (AT2035) through this board cleaned up some sound issues I was having with the Scarlet 2i2 (USB phantom power devices can be problematic, and it's usually your computer's fault). The mixers and effects have a noticeable impact, and the changes seem to be relative to the knob. My use case is sort of limited, but for my purposes it is an excellent device.
Happy with it By:
It works as it should, the effects work nicely, wish I could have more than one on at a time; For the price I'm happy with with it.
Buy it By:
I love it.
great product By:
Nothing to dislike , works better than expected , able to zone in the tones I need for guitar and vocals
Great product excellent quality By:
Great product excellent quality
This is exactly what I needed for YouTube and podcasting By:
Loving it so far. I have my external speakers microphone desktop and tv audio inputs connected and can easy switch around audio inputs without having to change audio settings on Windows 10. The effects and all the other feathers make it worth the buy.
It sounds great, and I use it when I don't need ... By:
This is a basic, but highly functional analog mixer. It sounds great, and I use it when I don't need to roll out one of my wireless, much more expensive mixers.
IT WORKS!!! By:
IT WORKS!!! Solid start for most tech (Audio Equipment)...but forreal this Mixer is GREAT, can plug all the things into it! Would mixer again

great mixer By:
Perfect for small jobs and for house. It is a great mixer.
Recommend! By:
great price and great customer service at behringer i use the tape in and tape out to connect to my computer with ease. a little noise if you have the mic gain and mic volume all the way up and you have speakers on so if you hear a lot of static just make sure those are turned down.
This mixer is fantastic! I originally bought a Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interface ... By:
This mixer is fantastic! I originally bought a Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interface for livestreaming/recording purposes, which was more than 2 times the price... but this mixer is great and I got rid of my Scarlett the minute I hooked this up.It's great/ideal for a dual mic set-up, as only two of the channels can adjust hi/mid/low, and the remaining 4 inputs can only have the pan and volume adjusted. Also, it's worth noting that the phantom power provided on this mixer can only power ONE input port. (for instance, channel 1 has an XLR input and a 1/4 jack, but phantom power will only be supplied to one of the two)If you are looking to start streaming games with one or two people and want to use condenser mics, this is the best way to go about it. Best purchase I've made in a long time. I have had no issues, and what you see is what you get. (FYI, if you want to use a USB cable to deliver your sound to a computer, then go to the Xenyx 1002USB, NOT this.)
Five Stars By:
Excellent thank you.
exactly what i needed By:
what can i say?its exactly what i needed and works as intended. got all 4 of my synths and a guitar running through this into my audiobox interface and going into my computerworks like a charm.
100 for the 1002 By:
Top products. This one does not fail to live up to that lofty perch. Only wish it had those small rubber stick on pads for the bottom. Other than that very small item, love it.

Excellent Mixer with Cool FX By:
This is an excellent mixer with cool preset FX. It may be better if there were more controls on the FX Channels and considering other FX Panels it may be useful for Behringer to release an advanced model that allows for better controlling of FX including specific controls for each FX Setting in 3-4 separate digital dials on the Mixer. Looking to purchase a model like that in 2020 A.D.
