A solid 4 stars all around
Peeter K., 12.02.2020
First, it is by no means a bad mixer. In fact, probably the best for the money. But, I bought it as an alternative to a Behringer X32 Rack and I have to say, I still prefer the X32 Rack to almost all gigs.
It sounds the same as the X32, has the same excellent FX selection, but the features are limited: no delays on outputs (the biggest deal for me), less FX slots, limited input/output, lack of USB player and many other smaller grievances. The iPad app is also worse than the X32.
The built-in wi-fi is downright unusable with the default antenna. changing the antenna to a stronger made it at least usable, but you will still be better off with an external router.
But what it has going for it is the size. It fits in any backpack and is sufficiently light to carry around by hand or on your back. So for smaller gigs where you only have to bring a mixer or sound interface, this is perfect. And of course, the price. There is also the more expensive Midas version, but in my opinion, considering the jobs this mixer is aimed at, the Midas is not worth the money.
So in conclusion, a perfectly adequate mixer that sounds good and still has a good feature set. Recommended if budget and/or portability are a big concern. Otherwise, I would say get the X32 Rack.

fantastic mixer at the price.
John2402, 19.11.2019
i've been using this at gigs for nearly 2 years (that's about 200 shows). 2 mics, 1 acoustic guitar, plus various keys and guitar processors, so typically 12-14 channels in use. i've also used it in a home studio periodically.

good points: 1 - sound quality is fine; 2 - reliability has been perfect; 3 - functionality and features are quite good; 4 - very easy to set up and use.

bad points: 1 - the built-in wifi is nowhere near good enough for use at gigs (a good dual-band router is a must if you want to take it on the road); 2 - i've used various control devices, and their GUI implementation varies between ok and poor, but i've found using an iPad or other tablet is the best option.

it's a fantastic mixer for the price, but when i can afford to spend more i will invest in something with better audio specs, more reliably functional user control interface and with a better set of recording options.

Nice mixer for a great price
Zsolt82, 08.02.2019
I know this is a PA mixer, but I've purchased it for my small home studio setup after having read up on the extensive samplerate debate ;)
I'm doing every processing in the box (Harrison mixbus) and all I need is enough preamps and an easy way to control them.
I like the fact that you can just save several presets and recall them with the press of a button. This in conjunction with using templates in your DAW gets you on your way and recording in no time.
Figuring out how to setup the device to be used as a usb interface sending the signal back from the box wasn't without hassle though, but after I got it working I couldn't be happier with my choice.
As for how it would perform in the intended environment (as a PA mixer), I can only assume it does more than fine. The feature set is great (compressor, eq, sends, aux busses...) everything you need is there.
So in short, if you need something compact, versatile and clean sounding, look no further. :)

Very nice!
Musicadi, 07.04.2019
Lots of features, effects, good sound, perfect for smaller bands.

Although I wasn't really a Behringer "fan" (one of the worst analog mixer I ever had was a Behringer :) ), I got it because of the very good reviews and the recommendation of a colleague of mine, who also has one and only had positive experiences!

Good mixer for the price.
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.

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.
