The New XR12
Jayboy, 16.05.2015
I'll jump straight into this by saying that this XR12 is solid. Behringer are always considered the next best thing with their gear but this is as good as it gets. There's not much on the hardware side to shout about apart from the sockets - excellent quality and gives a confident connection. There are 2U rack ears included if you want to use them.

It's early days for this technology and the available apps will be where it scores the most against the competition. Having said that, you may already know about the x32 engine running the show and I am impressed with effects available. Once you work out how this mixer works without having an in depth manual, then you can appreciate it's uses. The app differs slightly across platforms with PC/Mac giving better control and other features than iOS or Android...

So to summarise a few questions I never found the answers to before I bought this, here's an explanation... The are four effects slots from the dozens of FX's available, only one can be assigned as system to the main output but set as an insert, any channel can access any four. There are 12 physical inputs but 16 channels to mix with so you can specify a route for example: Mic on input One going to channels 1, 12 and 13 for mixing. (it's complicated but possible) also, There's EQ available on every channel, Main and FX and so much more. I'm having a lot of fun with this unit and as Behringer have promised more with updates in the future I am looking forward to that to.
Thanks for reading.

Great mixer!
Zdravko M., 20.11.2018
Well, let me say this...
This is the best peace of equipment that I ever bought.
I've been using it for 2 years now, for more then 200 live gigs, and it never failed.
What you get in this small, light and easy to carry black box is just awesome!
It has everything that you could possibly think of...only if you need more channels, but then you have other versions of this product.
So, you get all the channels you need, all the effects that you need, and then some more...equalizers, usb port, so you can reproduce music, or record it live...and one of the best things - everything is controlable with their app that you can download for free, on your tablet, phone, or something like that, so you can move around the place, and make the sound that you desire without running back and forth all the time. It's so small and convenient that you'll never think of carrying around any of those big, heavy pieces of equipment.
The only down side - there were some situations when the wireless connection was unstable, or couldn't make a connection. That happens when there are too many wireless signals in the area. In that situations you need an extra router so you can make a good connection. So, that's not really a big problem, if you can even call it like that...
All in all, this is a great product and I highly reccomend it!

Amazing for the price
Stevemartin81, 07.08.2015
I bought this after buying a bigger X32 mixer and being blown away how good it was. The X air didn't disappoint either, compact and works as you imagine. The only thing the smaller X12 & X16 miss is an on board sound card. The USB is only for recording directly onto a USB stick. You can get this on the bigger X18 model though. Also very easy to use and set up. Highly recommend.

(Updated after a few weeks use)

OK, although i stand by how good this mixer is for the price there are a few things to watch out for regarding connectivity. Firstly the built in wireless access point, if you are planning on using this in busy built up areas with a lot of people (and their smartphones) this is useless and drops out making it un-usable on your ipad/tablets. Bare this in mind as when it happens you can not control your mixer, which as you can image causes a few issues!
After coming across this issue i purchased another ethernet connector to use on my macbook to hard wire it. This solves the busy airwaves if you want to control it on your PC/Mac but if you are also using the internet at the same time on the same machine it gets confused. Easy way around this is connect the X-air before you connect to the internet and then you should be fine. I'm using a Macbook so this wired issue might be different with PC.

overall, if you are solely buying this for the wireless tablet connectively using the inbuilt access point, don't because it doesn't work in built up wifi areas.

Perfect for rehearsals and gigs without sound-man
myka, 13.03.2019
We use it for rehearsals and gigs without sound-man.
It is really useful and powerful tool for rehearsals and gigs. Here comes the arguments:
It saves a lot of gear setting up time by saving mixer settings on your mobile app during rehearsals and loading saved settings before gig.
It is lifesaver for solo, duet or trio artists because it makes playing without sound-man possible by giving remote access to the mix.
32 band eq on stereo out makes saved mixer settings sound the best in almost any environment.
This device has nice effects and you can use up to 4 in one time. Once setup is ready, these effects can be accessed on each physical input channel. I use chorus, delay and reverb for acoustics. For vocals I use compressor and reverb. Did I mentioned graphical EQ? There are a lot more very useful features that I won't mention but it's there.
It is really rugged peace of equipment and build quality is really well.
App can be confusing sometimes but once your how to do stuff, it is no more confusing.
Final word: I'm blessed to be born in times when such a very portable (fits in bag-pack with all leads and mics) digital mixer/effects block/ remote control/super audio signal managing tools are so affordable. Thanks behringer and thanks Thomann.de
