A great mixer for on the road or in the studio.
Cotton Head, 24.06.2013
What I like about the Behringer SX 2442FX:

The layout of the SX 2442FX is very intuitive; following the signal path through the deck is easy by following the different colour coded knobs blue for EQ, red for AUX and orange for FX. The on board Graphics equalizer and effects are very good but I have yet to use them in a live situation. It's good to know that they are there if needed.

My setup:

I use this mixer for a mobile PA setup and it has proved to be rugged enough to be still in pristine condition after almost five years of transporting to gigs in a hatchback in its original box.

I use 1 main vocal mic in channel 1 the next 4 channels have vocal mics channelled through sub 1-2 and through my Behringer EQ and returning through another channel direct to the main mix out. Then I use two other channels for music.

In the home studio The SX 2442FX is very versatile as a recording mixer with plenty of channels for mics and adding things like a looper and wireless receivers for ukulele and Cigar box guitar. Also a couple of floor stand mics for didgeridoo and cajon. Recording is accomplished via the dedicated tape input-output so the uses for this mixer are endless.

Quality:

As you will gather from the above this mixer is of excellent quality especially when you consider the price. Do not be put off by the width of the mixer although it is wider than the average mixer it is still easy to transport between gigs. And as they say if your kit looks good your audience will think you sound good.

To sum up:

This is a real mixer that feels good, looks good and really does sound good. With all the features you could want and much more. So I would recommend the SX 2442FX to anyone and I would not be without mine.

SX2442FX
Just a customer, 19.06.2014
I can't really fault this desk for the money, it has so many features and really the sound quality is good. The routing is incredibly flexible. I should probably say as well I?m using it primarily as a desk for working with an open reel analogue deck, so the 4 buss structure is a good match for my 4/4 REC 8 PLAY track configuration, and I have plenty of extra inputs for my MIDI gear. Very old school, but I like working with this sometimes.

Anyway, I had a few disappointments. For me I didn't like the fact that the only way to route monitoring that includes soloed channels (control room out) is through a single headphone jack. Other models in the series such as the X2222USB (which I also own) have a separate set of L/R jacks for control room output.

I found the 48v phantom light stays on all the time no matter what you do with the switch, but the operation is unaffected, so it's just a slight annoyance. Would probably be more of an issue in a live situation with low light, where you need to be sure your 48v is off before patching TRS cables.

Again like the X2222USB, it would be nice if the selected FX settings remained between sessions and a tap tempo option like the X2222USB would be welcome, likewise the one knob compression.

So really my gripes are about things that are present on a newer design frame that are ?missing? from the 2442FX. It would be good to see Behringer update this model with these handy things. I dare say had I not owned a X2222USB prior to this one I would not miss most of these things, probably just the extra monitor output.

All in all, incredible value for money.

A big mistake
Michal3806, 25.07.2015
Purchasing the Behringer SX2442FX mixer was a tragic mistake. Not that it doesn?t have a rich feature list ? it?s a good product when it works. Sadly, those moments were rare and few.

I had to return the first one as it simply broke down. A new one came under warranty. Things looked OK for a while, then the the replacement unit went south, as it happened outside warranty, so the repair was a rather pricy affair.

It held its ground again after that repair but just recently it blew (luckily not literally) again.

I know it?s got good ratings, and my experience with Behringer is good, so it?s possible to find an odd unit manufactured on a Friday afternoon half an hour before the end of business hours. But to receive two unreliable units?

Packed with features , but reliability problems
Barry70uk, 09.12.2018
Used as main front of house desk in 5 piece band , with mackie swa 1801, and mackie sr1522z . This mixer is packed with so many features for the price looked like the ideal mixer for us , however at its 3rd gig things started to go wrong
A) one of the 16 channel strips died
B) 4 times during a gig both effects engines stopped working I had to reboot the mixer each time
Don?t get me wrong the sound is great from this desk with the twin effects units, sub groups, mono out with frequency crossover control etc, and the aux sends with are brilliant for total control of the monitors
But for me reliability is a concern
