Excerpt: I bought this mixer a little more than 2-years ago. I used it in a small home studio with 2-stereo keyboards, a microphone, and a guitar (through a pedal board) plugged plugged into it. The unit was rarely moved. It was plugged into a surge protector which was turned off when not in use. Recently, all the mono/XLR channels failed along with the effects. Spend a little more and get something that will last.
Excerpt: superb sound for this 12-channel portable mixer from Behringer - the Xenyx1202 is a great buy from B&H Photo!! - it's about the size of an iPad, and only about half inch thick - it's great to travel with, also fits in netbook size padded travel bags! only one small drawback to this mixer is that there is no power switch...
Pros: Accurate Controls, Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Versatile
Excerpt: I have been experimenting with this mixer for the last week. I am recording my songs on my Yamaha C3 Grand and doing my vocals. I love being able to pan the piano to one side and the vocals to the other. I can adjust the EQ for each microphone. Then I send the sound to my Boss900 and use the effects to adjust things further. Now I just need to sit down every night and record a song or two. Then I will have finished my 3rd album of original songs. Thank you so much.
