Excerpt: I bought this mixer as a dual purpose unit: I wanted to mix audio from a vocal mic and instrument mic for online video, and I wanted to be able to mix inputs from different instrument and vocal mics for digial recording of my son's music (he's a multi-instrumental musician and singer).My intial perceptions of this mixer are favorable.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Versatile
Excerpt: I've been using this mixer for about a month now to record my band. We use a DAW called Reaper, and it works really well with the software. The one thing That I would really like out of it is for each channel to send separately to the DAW instead of just sending the Main Mix. But it's ok, we've still been able to do our recording.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound
Excerpt: I work for the education department of a large regional healthcare provider. I support the production of educational videos, as well as large events and classes. The Xenyx 1204 USB is "just what the doctor ordered" for video shoots, voice-overs and recording narration of PowerPoint presentations. I also plan to use it for larger productions when the built-in audio mixer/amps in are classrooms won't provide enough inputs.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Does the job, Inexpensive, Punches Above its Weight, Versatile

Excerpt: I have used this in only limited settings. I am very pleased with its very low noise floor. I have used three different type microphones: condenser, dynamic and acoustic guitar transducer pickup on stringed instruments. The transducer has the worst noise issues but can be EQ'd out fairly well. I also have a dual CD deck feeding into the mixer with no noise issues at all.
Summary: This little mixer is great for my little one man show and still has room to have one or two others join me. It's the same sound as the larger mixers, like the 1832 I use for my band. It's perfect for what I do. It's very compact and seems to be rather tough too.
