I finally bit the bullet and bought this mixer. I'm one step closer to my plan for an amateur home studio setup.

I was hesitant between X32R and XR18 but X32R is overkill for my needs.

BTW both of these mixers were on sale on amazon.ca

I just received the XR18 yesterday. I'm exploring the capabilities. One thing I noticed is that I still need a headphones amp with my HD-650 otherwise I have to crank up the volume.

I'm not going to say anything about the quality of the mixer yet (because it's Behringer), but so far it beats any audio interface I can imagine for live/home use.

There are 4 shared effects, and 18 independent EQ, compressor, etc on each line. This is great. That means you can mix/master (drums, guitar etc.) everything for your live performance.

I can loopback my laptop's internal audio on any of the 18 lines. That said, I've used the X-Air app on my iPad and it seems as capable as the PC editor.

Wifi probably won't work in large venues but I've had no issues with its all possible setups at home.

I couldn't believe that this mixer has a de-esser effect!!!

If someone is familiar with the basics of mixing and mastering, the mixer has a straightforward workflow for recording performance.

I love the fact that it has 18 compressors on every channel!


*** I see much value in this little mixer if the quality is on par with its quantity (capabilities inside the mixer). If I was going to choose something for home use probably I'd pick XR12 instead getting an audio interface. This little thing is so much fun!
