Fantastic product!

Jbite, 24.05.2018
For its price point at the time of purchase (£4 than the XR18), the MR18 was a worthwhile upgrade over the Behringer XR18. For this review I'm only going to explain why I think the MR18 is better than the XR18.

The pre-amps sound fantastic. The first microphone I tested them with was an AKG C414 on vocals and acoustic guitar and I was blown away. They are in my opinion better than the pre-amps on the X/XR series (which are already very good) and they are considerably better on some older digital mixers (Yamaha 01v96i in particular).

The genuine neutrik locking xlr connectors are fantastic and mean I no longer worry about cables getting pulled out and the 10 year warranty is also fantastic and gives me great confidence.

The wifi is sadly as poor as on the XR18 and you will need a wireless router with you to ensure a strong, reliable and secure connection. The MR18 also lacks hi-z inputs (the XR18 has these) but this is because the Midas Pro Preamp design lacks the circuitry for hi-z, but I prefer to use a DI anyway - hi-z was just a nice 'just in case',

The future is here

amiko, 12.01.2018
The future is here, no more need for heavy and cumbersome stage snakes, this small box takes care of everything. I've heard you should prepare with an external wifi point if you inted to use this wirelessly, as the included wifi is somewhat weak and drops out easily when everyone in the audience has smart phones in their pocket. With this, you can also record everything on a computer with 16 separate tracks, which is a huge plus! Instant live album, which you can mix later in your home studio. The guitar effects are uselessly horrible sounding, but basic EQ, compression and gate work ok, the reverb isn't too good. So not ultimate hifi experience, but that's not required when you look at the price tag and think what this tiny box accomplishes. Just few years ago that would have required a huge and heavy rack. Mixing from ipad with no cables is awesome.

The Android app is quite ugly but works fine, the ipad app looks a lot better. Oh, and a side note, the recording driver for windows is different in Midas and Behringer versions of the mixer, so don't try to install the wrong one and then wonder why it doesn't work.
