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!
