We use the small 4 & 6 channel Mic/line mixers for testing purposes, (PA systems etc.) and for the money I don’t think they can be beaten. Sound quality seems good enough for our purpose and their ‘silent input’ circuitry is very good. I can’t comment on how they may perform in a critical recording/live application though.
The reason they are so cheap is that they rip off everyone else’s designs and get them copied in China with very low R&D costs, (see the famous long-running case of Mackie vs Behringer). One of ours bares an uncanny resemblance to an Alesis model.
So there is a moral angle to buying Behringer products J
Im looking for a small mixer for my Looper/Effects Setup. I also would like to loop the other musicians in the band.
I own a Mackie 1604 which is great. But I would like to buy a small/cheap mixer in addition to that.
It doesnt have to be a studio quality mixer and in Germany Behringer is unbelievable cheap.
But Im not really sure about the quality. How can the produce a unit for that price ???
What is your experience ? Thanks alot!
