Great overall but the Windows app could be better

monbeauchaudron, 31.10.2018
I bought the mixer at a ridiculously discounted price which makes it difficult to criticize anything about it because the quality to price and features to price ratios are almost insane. However I allow myself to add two remarks to the XR18?s short list of cons you can find here and there in other reviews.

1. Two first channels labeled ?Hi-Z? right above the input socket make it possible to plug a guitar of a bass directly without a DI box and while the idea is great and the sound in signal to noise terms is identical to the one you get using a nice DI the high impedance affects somehow the performance of these channels when you plug in a typical dynamic microphone whose low sensitivity requires a solid boost from the preamp. In such a case the level of noise vs. the signal seems higher than in case of the other 14 channels with the same mic plugged in. The first two channels seem to produce a slight noise even with nothing plugged in if you don?t mute them. According to a manufacturer?s representative who explained this phenomenon at a web forum it?s normal as those two Hi-Z-capable channels have no impedance switch built in so the ?Hi-Z? feature remains active even with an XLR cable plugged in and hence the extra noise. I know nothing about electronics but this speaks to my imagination somehow as well as the promise of extended lifespan of such a switchless preamp but still it seems weird that the noise just resides there nonetheless. My first thought was that the first two channels were defective and I almost sent the unit back as the main purpose of the mixer for me is to do multichannel recordings including those of acoustic instruments and voices so the signal to noise ratio is a key factor to me. Now that I know the truth I just remember to use high sensitivity condenser mics with those two channels to reduce the preamps? drive and improve the noise performance.

2. The Windows app, while easy to use and generally clear, lacks a full screen fader only view I know from another manufacturer?s app. Big, tall faders are sometimes the only thing you need to set your levels properly and you could easily forget about other features of a selected channel like compressor or eq settings that you always see in a window over the row of faders whose scale remains reduced to less-than-half-window-tall. On the other hand, the row of meters above the faders in the ?mixer view? could have been easily integrated with the then magnified faders. And while the app?s GUI allows the user to scale it as a whole, you can scroll the magnified view only horizontally so the faders and MUTE buttons disappear behind the lower edge of the screen and remain invisible until the ?standard? scaling is restored. Maybe it?s not something you would hate the app for but in some situations during live mixing you may get confused while in that very moment you?re supposed to react quickly.

That being said I?m very satisfied with the mixer as well as the quality of recordings I?ve made with it. The driver is stable with the DAWs I use (Reaper and Bitwig Studio) and mixing the DAW output with the mixer?s input signals is also seamless which is important when artists need tailored monitor mixes for overdubbing.

A bunch of features for the price

Miguel Francisco, 20.11.2018
I use it for home studio, but I do not discard the possibility to use it for venues too.
Its 18 inputs and 8 outputs coupled with good free download software makes this console a winner for this price segment. Using the Ultranet RJ45, you can set-up monitor mixers with the PowerPlay from Behringer.
You can use a hardware control surface too. I have chosen and ordered the X-Touch for convenience and LAN connectivity. But I still await for stock.
I use it connected to a Macbook pro and to an iPad 3 retina. I have also installed the Android app for fun on my smartphone. Everything works flawlessly. No issues so far.
You also get a 18 ins / 18 outs PC sound card via the USB connector. In Mac OSX it worked without any configuration effort. Out of the box.
Pros:
Convenience, weight and connectivity. Mine is connected to a LAN with a L2 switch and a router. That makes a lot of fun for peripheral connections.
SOUND card built in
Good software (free, no demos,) If you register your product you get WaveForm software from Traktor for free.
IOS, MAC, Windows and Android implementation
DCA's to use as grouping control, mute groups and buses. Aux and/or monitor mixes
Cons:
I could not find one we could labelled like a con yet. The quality (as on any other Behringer products could be improved) In that sens you get a bit more than you pay for in this case? Good alternatives are not existing at this price tag. Anything with this bunch of features will go over ¤700 if you want a more quality and branded option be ready to pay over 1K.
Whether you are a musician on the go or you have your project studio or your band, just get one and you will not regret. There are option packages with flight-case.
About Thomann service. Top! I am a customer since 2008 more or less. I have bought a lot from them. Never have an issue that would not have been fixed either by service, replacement or refunding. I always found the right person to talk. They always helped me.
They rock!

Amazing value for money, it's pretty much a slightly stripped down X32

Konstantinos A., 30.05.2016
If the amount of inputs are enough for the application, then this unit has pretty much anything you might need.
Some of the more sophisticated options the X32 has aren't available, but I guess they did that so there's some incentive to buy an X32 if you're in a more pro setting.

I'll do a pros and cons list.

Pros:

Very compact, especially considering what you get for that tiny size.
Huge amount of sonic control with parametric and graphic EQs, gates and compressors around, not to mention the big collection of effects/outboard-gear-simulators.
Very versatile routing options with Individual channel and bus(aux) settings.
Built in router can get you started or work as a backup in an emergency.
Scene saving and recalling (goes without saying for a digital console...).
Also works as an audio interface.


Cons (most are just minor incoveniences to be honest):

Behringer kinda rushed to put the XR series on the market and to this day there's no official manual to my knowledge, there's a wiki and plenty of stuff online though so you're not thrown in the deep by yourself.
You will eventually probably need an external router.
Some delay options for more sophisticated PA setups would be handy.
Scenes do not recall effects correctly and generally the android app, though quite good, could use some more refining (haven't tried out the iPad app).
Sockets-plugs are not bad, but I would be willing to pay a bit more for some higher quality ones like Neutrik.
No expansion capabilities for more inputs-outputs (I estimate that if Behringer made a 24 channel version of this mixer, it would sell like crazy because 16 is kinda minimal for a typical band).

I leave this for last and outside the list because it must be a personal issue cause I couldn't find anyone else having the same problem online, but for some reason I can't get the unit to work with system sound in my Windows PC (everything related with the ASIO drivers works fine).

Behringer to take over the world

Spino, 04.11.2018
After the last rebate, this box is a total winner.

First of all, it can record 18 channel to PC, cheaper than any sound card out there; this was the dealmaker for me.

The mixer itself has that modern clean and no fuss sound that pretty much every box nowadays has. It's no Neve, but again it's clean and low noise enough to be very usable.

The interface is neat (I use it on android phone & tablet, and on osx) and the mixer, for this price, has pretty much anything you could want, routing is impressive, you can tap sound from wherever, you can assign things around, it could even work as an inline mixer with your DAW if you set USB correctly, channel layout is clear and full of options.

I'm utterly impressed, overall, this mixer has been very well thought out with the final user in mind.

The very few cons: use an external router, and on board effects are short of good (reverb in particular sounds the same crap whatever option you pull up).

Awesome bit of kit that will change gigging bands for the better

TomTheBear, 10.09.2015
This is a fantastic little unit that is very easy to use and amazingly priced for what your getting.

Lets start with the size. It is essentially a digital 3u stage box with all your ins and outs llocated on the front of this box. It comes with its own rack ears if you want to rack mount it in a 19" rack case (which is what I did for easy transportation).

Once you have plugged all of your ins and outs into it, then all the operation comes from a wireless device such as an iPad, laptop or android. The unit has its own wifi router so connection to a device couldn't be simpler.

The free app that runs the unit is fantastic. Very easy to use and logical and contacts some great effects units such as reverbs, delays, compressors, and eq's. It is also very easy to route monitor mixes to any of the 6 auxiliary mixes.

A few negatives not so much about the unit but in functionality and in use. Firstly, because i have a slightly older iPad, it doesn't quite keep up with the app and the XR18 which (I assume) requires a very fast CPU to run it. I would like it to be a bit quicker and it sometimes loses connection and can become a little bit clunky. I don't believe this to down to the actual unit, more about my iPad but it is still an inconvenience when trying to mix live. I would recommend running the app off of a laptop or a newer, faster iPad.

My other comment would be that it is very difficult to get a great easy sound and setup quickly. I, like many run a function band and whilst i do the sound, I also play piano. Before with analogue desks this was easy as you could set it all up in sound check and merely tweak it throughout the performance. This is much harder with this unit. The way around this is to rely on presets prior to your gig. Get the mixer set up as much as you can including auxiliary mixes, effects, eq's and then save that as a preset. Then its much easier to tweak throughout your gig.

Overall, its a fantasict unit that i think is really going to change the live sound game. Bearing in mind its a digital desk for under £1000 and a good one at that, i think this will be a very popular product. The other note I must add is that when I purchased mine, you could not get them for love nor money in the UK. Everywhere was sold out and had unrealistic wait times.......everywhere except Thomann. I ordered mine and had it within 5 days. Very happy!!

Almost perfect

Monci, 29.12.2018
We use this mixer for silent rehearsals, 6 buses perfect for personal monitoring for each band member.
Pros: many, many options, flexible routing and separate channel effects. You can save the full setup , and channel setups separate. You can use other users setup, you can change setups on internet.
16 channel recording.
Cons: the internal wifi router is very poor quality. I suggest to use an external wifi router.

Excellent concept - Very well executed!

Robert36, 18.03.2015
Bought this unit for a few situations. So far I am incredibly impressed with it. The PC software is completely intuitive and simple to operate. I had it operational in 5 minutes after opening the box.

For me the USB was very important. It was a trivial matter to get the USB audio routed to FOH.

Exceptional value and a brilliant concept

A very good Digital Mixer and Audio Interface....

EdwinB, 15.08.2015
This product has proved good beyond my expectations....I was able to learn how to use it in a day....It did take me some time to figure out how to get a stable wifi connection and to start the system without any glitches.....But now i am very confident that this product will not fail during gigs....
The software is fantastically make and is very responsive....It has more than enough options for a professional mix...I managed to record and check the quality of recording....It was very good and no problems there....
By the way....I managed to use the mixer, recording and audio from itunes...all working from the same laptop( I use a macbook pro)....
The stage box is well built unit....light weight and small in size....
I would highly recommend this product for professional live performances like bands and DJ's...and and a multi track audio Interface....

:-)

Potsie, 04.11.2017
This is a killer digital mixer. I'm using it with my PC and android tablet and I experienced no problem. It is better than I expected and it is the best mixer I have ever had.
There is just one thing I had preferred to see different: the connections are all on the front panel, so that if you put it in a rack (and you can) and you have other gear on the same rack to be connected to the XR you might need a patchbay, to allow cables to pass from the rear of the other rack into the frontal input of the XR. Moreover, rack mounting it prevents you to access the power switch, that is positioned on the right side. But that's the only minus. For the rest it is easy to use (there are several videos that explain how to use it, a better source of information than the manual), light, small and providing really outstanding capabilities.
Each input, then has several dedicated and independent processors (compressor, eq, gate) and you can also add up to four other processors that have to be shared among the 18 inputs. Really not bad!!!!

Great piece of equipment!

Gregory E., 10.08.2017
It's very compact and easy to carry around, especially in the gator carry bag. Light weight and easy to set up. Blends easily onstage with rest of equipment - looks like a stage box. Can be fit into a rack with mounting brackets included. Some issues with connectivity, will recommend using an external router as signal tends to be lost at the most unfortunate of times. Still keeps on functioning normally if signal/connectivity is lost but you wouldn't have control over it. Connectivity can be secured with a password. Can be controlled by multiple devices at the same time. Can be used with ethernet cable. Great software/interface, easy to get used to and very user friendly. My first 'digital' mixer and managed to get it up and running in a few seconds. Would recommend to small to medium sized bands. Outputs can be assigned as necessary for live or recording.

Amazing gear for unbelievable price

svldmnn, 09.11.2018
I've dreamt of a digital mixer that would allow six different monitor mixes for my a cappella band. These would usually start at a couple of thousands. Amazingly, this one does the job as well!

I use it in combination with a PreSonus HP60 headphone amp. I would mix a common stereo master signal with X Air, and then additionally do the mono monitor mixing for the six aux buses. (HP60 is probably the only one that can turn the aux signal into mono with a button while keeping the master stereo.) Then I would mix them in the headphone amp, thus getting both stereo monitoring and individual control over the added levels for each musician. The best solution you could get for the price!

The ipad app is great, and for extra five bucks or so you can get one for an iphone too. Android should also be supported.

Contrary to the reports on the internet, I have not yet discovered any issues with the wireless connection through the built-in wifi.

Getting all the input channels sent individually to a computer via usb is also a great feature which allows recording all the rehearsal sessions for future analysis.

Additionally, the effect section was a pleasant surprise, including the sub-octaver!

There is no competition...

14.12.2016
Bought it to use it as back up console ~10 months ago for a small live performance only band and i ended up using it as main console...
we are very happy with the device and never regret it we bought it.

excellent compact device
very good sound. Everything you need in a small box!
excellent control apps i use pc, android and ipad versions all are very good.

cons:
the network switch is not the best quality... it didn't gave me any problems yet but i am afraid to use it much...

we had some serious problems with the build in WiFi in some very WiFi congested areas it was impossible to establish connection with the device. even at very close distances.
but i don't consider that it is a device problem since we had the same issues when we used a cheap 2,4Ghz router with both consoles. at the same areas.
Problem solved temporarily with an Ethernet utp wire connected to a laptop.. and the job was done...
we bought a dual band (2,4Ghz/5Ghz) good quality
wireless router (i highly recommend to do it ASAP) and we have no problems since then.

another problem is that the device have not relays or other kind of protection at outputs.
it may seriously damage your speakers if you forget to turn them off BEFORE you power of the console. please remember that.

Great Mixer

Dovydas, 28.11.2018
I'm using Behringer X Air XR18 in a 100 m2 sized hall and it is great! No more snakes, no more mixer tables, all you need is a reliable tablet computer.

Behringer X Air XR18 is very portable and does not take up much space at the stage. Setting up the stage is easy and I can set it up in any side of the hall.

Only con that I see is wireless signal of the mixer itself. You should have external router to strengthen the signal so it would not get lost. When I started using external router, all signal problems disappeared.

I really recommend this device!

Armageljon, 03.01.2019
Check out the features in the XR18 description. The built in router is not so great. Better buy external router. Everything else worked great. Mixer is easy to set up and control. For rehearsals, small concerts and a project studio it does everything.

We have only used it once at one of our gigs and it worked well. Sound engineer was very happy when he saw he would be using it and all went as planned with no issues. So far so good and looking forward to many more gigs with it.

XR18

DDavid, 28.08.2017
Good and cheap, while other similar product have an high cost but similar features, perfect for small or medium bands, due to it's widely use, a lot of informations can be found on many forum and social environment, a bit tricky in the first approach but after learned it's very good product

Small and clever

Wabor, 18.10.2018
For the price, it is a very very good gadget!
The sound quality is fairly good and enjoyable.
The feature set is rich and it has everything you need for a small or medium size band but in some situations, you will wish some other channels.
The software provided on several platforms (Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, etc.), and it is clear and functional.
Unfortunately, you can use a wifi router in case you want to control it in a wired and wireless mode simultaneously.
Built in wifi seems to be not enough stable, but you can try to use a better antenna in a higher position above the stage.
It would be nice to have a 24in//10out version of this equipment.

The future is here...

Avtechy, 30.08.2017
This desk has changed my life! No more lugging around outboard or having to set up a sound booth. I use this for festival bands and speeches and love the freedom it gives me, both in the amount of processing and the wireless connectivity.

I use the XR18 with a 4.2k Yamaha DSR PA, SM58s, AKG blueline condensors and AT MBK instrument mics. the system sounds great, my only negative comments would be that the parametric eqs are a bit weak and that the reverbs could be better.

You can hardwire a laptop to it, set it as an access point or connect it to a wireless network. I have only experienced connectivity issues once when controlling it from my android phone via its built in access point. This was in a packed nightclub. You can switch control devices without interrupting anything. The actual box itself has never glitched or failed and ive been using it intensively for 6 months.

As an added bonus it has 18ch I/O via USB. Awesome machine.

Steep learning curve....

09.08.2016
The lego-kit of mixers for anyone not experience with digital mixers. Initially, a nightmare getting to grips how everything relates to something and is adjustable in all directions.

In the end, trying - > watching "how-to" videos->trying again, and then repeat pays off. This really delivers and enables such control and a wealth of features. A great buy and never looked back. We where unfortunate with the 1st one arriving dying within a week without any warning. Returned and got a new one and no issues since.

Awesome Mixer for a Gigging Band

The Stereotypes, 23.07.2017
We are a four piece rock cover band and bought this mixer last year. We use it for weekly rehearsals and gigging. It has worked flawlessly throughout all of this use. I cannot emphasize enough how much capability this Mixer gives you for the price. Even just the dynamics processing available on every channel (noise gate, compressor, eq) gives masses of capability without any additional hardware, you can get an amazing sound/mix if you know a bit about sound processing/mixing. On top of this you get the internal effects which are excellent quality.
We control the Mixer wirelessly over wifi with iPads and MacBook.
Being able to leave the box on the stage and control it wirelessly from front of house is priceless. The only mildly negative comment I will make is in regard of the internal wifi router which is only 2.4g and doesn't have the best security. I now view this more of a token inclusion for self contained capability. We had a few latency issues (visual response of faders to movement on iPad). I would strongly recommend using an external 5g router plugged into the Ethernet port, this is what we did and the response is now flawless with multiple devices simultaneously connected.
Behringer support is also very good, there are period firmware and app software updates, so they are actively supporting and improving the capability.

This device is the best purchase a small gigging band can make, capability vs cost is phenomenal. Don't hesitate and buy one now! It is impossible to be disappointed with this product.

A game-changing digital mixer...just brilliant!

Scott3406, 03.11.2017
Behringer have an absolute winner here. Compact, loaded with functions and features, solid, functions incredibly well and looks fantastic.
I have used this for over two years now, in a full live band situation and it has performed superbly. The XAir software is very flexible and provides a level of control that is hard to beat. It's an all-in-one solution that allows you to get rid of your old mixer, stage box, effects units and more...
New users may find it slightly tricky to get their head into this set-up, as opposed to a traditional analogue desk. But very quickly it will all fall into place. And they won?t look back!

I love this thing!

Mo Z, 07.08.2017
Have been using it for a few months now, for myself on stage with a band, and for mixing other musicians.

I use it with an iPad and it works perfectly.

A few pointers:

1- The phone app (as expected) is not the best. Much better to use a tablet, which works great.

2- Use an external router. The built in wifi is very weak. Don't find yourself stuck in a gig with no signal. Also expected.

3- If you're a band and want you mix yourself, get an ipad stand (K&M make a great one).

This mixer will definitely change your live gig experience.

Best I ever had.

Andis-Edzus, 29.10.2015
I bought the XR-18 as an alternative to lugging around my larger analog mixer and rack mounted interfaces and have no regrets! Sound quality is great, the multiple control options are a plus and wireless control with an external router is secure and rock solid. The USB interface works great with Studio One 2 Pro and Logic Pro X.
The EQ's, dynamics and effects are useful but I would like to see channel inserts for external processing favorites that I use in the studio and live. Doubling the channel and aux count would also be a nice touch. Overall, you cannot go wrong with the power and performance the XR-18 provides at this price point!

I do small acoustic gigs and this is perfect discrete and I can mix while I'm in the room with the audience. No issues with where to put the desk or cable runs. Worst case scenario will be a single cat 5 to a laptop. Nice.
