Not 299, it is 199.

That's me not checking after typing, 199 is what I meant, I got the price differential right at least, Thomann have the XR12 at 259 inc. 19% tax on the German site.

Ah, ok.

A big diff from the xr12 is the multitrack option via usb. The xr12 cant connect to your phone/tablet either using coreaudio. It is also perfect if you are a youtuber or similar and need to connect several audio sources to your camera, if you are outside and have no access to power.

I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised when using it...

Hmmm....that may be nice for acoustic duo gigs.

Bluetooth connectivity for remote seems interesting.  Curious to see how stable it ends up being.
If they used a Bluetooth class 1 transceiver, it should be just fine within around 300 feet.  Keep in mind that BT operates on the 2.4Ghz band; however, I can tell you from experience in BT design, that because of the newer BT modules and their ability to frequency hop, I have had significant success with throughput and range even in a CRAZY crowded AAPEX show in Vegas where there was no possible way to get any 2.4Ghz WiFi throughput yet the BT was able to stream live vehicle data operating at high speed CAN speeds until around 300 feet!  This was in the worst possible scenario for BT.  Of course, it all depends on the components used, the effectiveness of the integrated antenna, and the connection parameters they employed.  My team spent considerable time researching and comparing bluetooth options before we settled on our implementation.

Hopefully Behringer spent the time to do it right as well.

I wonder how the sound quality compares to my trusty ZED 10fx?  Robert, do you know the details of the channel processing?  (and if you do, can you tell us ;) ).

The mic stand mechanicals look like a terrible idea.  That is a pretty serious lever they have implemented.  I got a dollar that says something breaks.

I think it has a place.  Want to take a look.  This may be just what Art was looking for going to revisit that thread.

That's funny; that was exactly the reaction I had!

No moving faders. No ethernet control. No thanks.
Just the motorised faders would make it more attractive for me.

This is exactly what I've been looking for. I found it crazy there was nothing compact with enough IO for one or two singers + instruments while having monitors and some basic FX.

Analog or digital but extra dsp of digital is nice for EQ and comp!

Slam-dunk IMO. Weve been looking for something with faders that can do what xair18 can do.

Definitely will grab one to use in place of the xair18 for faders.

Currently the channel processing is fairly basic with four fixed eq bands, hpf, single knob compressor. Enought for the basic stuff.

They had less advanced users in mind, but there is talk about making it a bit more advanced based upon user feedback.

I found nothing bad with the preamps. Using a sm7b on a whisperer without a cloudlifter would be a stretch though ;-)

I would be able to mix a small band/jazz-trio without any apparent issues. I found it to be a great soundcard for my laptop, especially since it can run on usb power and the headphone output is delivering a loud signal. Only caveat for some users could be that it is currently locked at 48k. This doesnt bother me since Ive settled on 48k since many years, but people doing 44k may disagree.


Hopefully Behringer spent the time to do it right as well.
