EUROPOWER PMX2000
1. INTRODUCTION
2. CONTROL ELEMENTS
Congratulations! With the PMX2000 you have acquired a
state-of the-art 10-channel power mixer that sets new standards. Right from the start, our goal has been to design a
revolutionary device that can be used for a great variety
of applications. And indeed, this overwhelming power mixer
gives you plenty of functionality and a broad range of
connection and expansion options.
BEHRINGER is a company with its roots in professional
recording studio technology. For many years now we have
been successful in developing products for studio and live use.
These include microphones and 19" devices of all kinds
(compressors, enhancers, noise gates, tube processors,
headphone amplifiers, digital effects devices, DI boxes, etc.),
monitor and P.A. speakers and professional live and recording
mixers. Our entire technical know-how has gone into your
PMX2000.
+
2.1 Front panel
Your EUROPOWER PMX2000 comes with ten input channels,
which only differ in terms of pad switch, peak LED and interface
panel. Since the EQ, effect, monitor and level controls are identical on all channels, they will be described only once on the
enclosed sheet.
+
Please note that the effects processor is muted as
long as the FX TO MAIN control (
) is set fully
counter-clockwise.
The HI control in the EQ section governs the high
frequencies of the respective channel.
Use the MID control to boost/cut the mid range.
This manual first describes the terminology used,
so that you fully understand the PMX2000 and its
functions. Please read the manual carefully and keep
it for future reference.
The LOW control allows you to raise or lower the bass
frequencies.
The MON control determines the channel’s volume
assigned to the monitor mix.
1.1 Before you get started
Use the LEVEL control to set the volume level of the
respective channel.
1.1.1 Shipment
Use the PEAK LED to ensure that the input gain is set
properly. The PEAK LED should light up only with peak
signals, but never all the time.
Your PMX2000 was carefully packed at the factory and the
packaging is designed to protect the unit from rough handling.
Nevertheless, we recommend that you carefully examine the
packaging and its contents for any signs of physical damage
which may have occurred during transit.
+
The FX control determines the signal level that is routed
from the respective channel to the built-in effects processor.
The PAD button reduces the channel input sensitivity by
25 dB. Thus, you can also connect high-level line signals to
the respective channel input.
If the unit is damaged, please do NOT return it to
BEHRINGER, but notify your dealer and the shipping
company immediately. Otherwise, claims for
damage or replacement may not be granted.
This HI-Z/LINE input can be used to connect line level
signal sources, such as keyboards, electric and bass
guitars.
This is the channel’s balanced XLR microphone input.
1.1.2 Initial operation
Be sure that there is enough space around the unit for cooling
and, to avoid overheating, please do not place the PMX2000
near radiators etc.
+
+
+
Before you connect the PMX2000 to the mains, please
make sure that the voltage setting on the unit
matches the local voltage!
+
Please make sure that all units have a proper
ground connection. For your own safety, never
remove or disable the ground conductor from the
unit or of the AC power cord.
1.1.3 Warranty
Please remember to use either the microphone or
the line input on a specific channel. Never use both
at the same time. This rule applies to chanels 1 - 9.
When you connect a mono line signal to channels
7 - 9, please always use the left input. The mono
signal will then be reproduced on both stereo sides.
The TAPE/LINE IN RCA input of channel 10 allows you to
feed in external stereo signals from your CD player or tape
deck, for example.
Blown fuses must be replaced by fuses of the same
type and rating! Please refer to the “SPECIFICATIONS” for details.
The EUROPOWER’s serial number is located on the rear.
Please take the time to fill in and return the warranty card within
14 days after the date of purchase, so as to benefit from our
extended warranty. Or register online at www.behringer.com.

+
If you set the unit to a different mains voltage, be
sure to use a fuse of the correct type and rating.
Please refer to the “SPECIFICATIONS” for details.
The mains connection is made using the enclosed power cord
and a standard IEC receptacle. It meets all of the international
safety certification requirements.
+
The stereo line input of cannels 7 - 9 can be used to
connect, for example, keyboards with stereo outputs or
a stereo drum computer.
+
The TAPE/LINE OUT RCA output provides the stereo main
mix signal of your PMX2000 and can be routed to, say, a
recording machine.
When the TAPE OUT signal is connected to a tape
deck whose output signal is routed back to the
TAPE IN on the PMX2000, feedback can be produced
as soon as you start recording. Be sure to interrupt
the connection to the TAPE IN before recording!
The phantom power supply provides the voltage necessary
for the operation of condenser microphones. Use the
PHANTOM POWER switch to activate the supply together
for channels 1 - 9 (XLR connector). The LED above the
switch is lit when phantom power is on.
This is the PMX2000’s graphic stereo equalizer, which
comprises two units and can be used to adapt the sound
to the room acoustics.

2.2 Rear panel
The mains connection is on a standard IEC receptacle. An
appropriate power cord is supplied with the unit.
FUSE HOLDER. Before connecting the unit to the mains,
ensure that the voltage setting matches your local voltage.
Blown fuses should only be replaced by fuses of the same
type and rating.
The stereo equalizer uses one unit each to process the
main and monitor mix signals, if both units are on and the
MODE switch
is set to its lower position (“MON/MAIN”).
Use the EQ IN buttons to switch the two equalizer units on
or off.
Use the POWER switch to put your PMX2000 into operation.
Press the RUMBLE FILTER button to activate the low-cut
filter of channels 1 - 6. This filter eliminates unpleasant
bass frequencies (e.g. microphone pop noise).
The FX TO MON control determines the effects intensity
of the multi-effects processor as part of the monitor mix.
Turn the control fully counter-clockwise to add no effect to
the monitor mix.
+
The MONITOR LEVEL control adjusts the volume of the
monitor mix.
Use the MONITOR LEVEL display to control the monitor
signal level. The upper LED (LIM) lights up when the built-in
limiter is activated, thus protecting against overload.
With this MODE switch you can determine whether the
PMX2000 works as a stereo amplifier (“LEFT/RIGHT”) or
as a dual mono amplifier (“MON/MAIN”). Please note that
the equalizer function also depends on this switch setting
).
(see
The FX TO MAIN control functions as FX return for the
built-in effects processor. Use this control to add the
desired effect signal to the main mix. No effect signal is
added when the FX TO MAIN is set fully counter-clockwise.
The MAIN LEVEL control governs the overall volume of the
PMX2000.
+

+
The MAIN LEVEL display reads the output level of the
PMX2000. The upper LED (LIM) lights up when the built-in
limiter is activated, thus protecting against signal peaks.
Use the FX FOOTSWITCH jack to connect any commercially
available foot controller. It allows you to bypass the effects
unit.
This is the balanced MONITOR output of your PMX2000.
Use it to feed an external monitor amp or active wedge.
These two 1/4" TS jacks allow you to route the output
signal to an external amplifier. This allows you to, say, use
only the mixing and effect section of the PMX2000. The
signal is taken pre-power amp. Of course, you can also
use only the left jack as a mono output.
These two 1/4" TS jacks can be used to connect external
signals, such as the main mix signal from an additional
mixing console (pre-power amp).
+
+
This is the RIGHT/MONO MAIN Speakon® loudspeaker
output of your PMX2000, where you can connect the right
loudspeaker of a stereo system. For this purpose, switch
must be set to its upper position. If, however, you run
set to its lower position), this
a mono main mix (switch
loudspeaker output provides the main mix signal in mono.
The impedance of the loudspeaker connected here
must not fall below 4 W.
The BRIDGE loudspeaker output allows you to combine
the left and right stereo channel in one mono output, which
is useful for applications that require the use of one
loudspeaker only. To use the BRIDGE output, switch
must be set to “LEFT/RIGHT”.
Always connect the BRIDGE jack to a loudspeaker
with a minimum impedance of 8 W!
Please note that the power delivered to the speaker
connected to the BRIDGE output is considerably
higher than the power provided to the speakers
wired to the parallel speaker outputs. Please read
the information given on the rear panel of your
PMX2000.
When using the BRIDGE loudspeaker output, NEVER
use any of the other two connectors (RIGHT/MONO
MAIN and LEFT/MONITOR) at the same time!
This is the LEFT/MONITOR Speakon® loudspeaker output
of your PMX2000, to which you can connect the left
loudspeaker of a stereo system (switch
set to its
upper position). If you do a main mix in mono (switch
set to its lower position), this loudspeaker output provides
the monitor signal in mono.
The impedance of the loudspeaker connected here
must not fall below 4 W.
Information on how to properly connect your
speaker with regard to polarity can be found on the
rear of the unit (PIN assignment).

3. EFFECTS PROCESSOR
A special feature of your PMX2000 is its built-in multi-effects
processor that features the same audio quality as our renowned 19" effects device VIRTUALIZER PRO DSP2024P. The
processor comes with 99 different standard effects such as
reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, vocal distortion as well as various
effects combinations.
Cathedral: Simulates the dense, long reverberation of a large
cathedral, which is appropriate for solo instruments or vocals in
slow pieces. Please choose between two variations.
Plate: Simulates the sound of plate reverberators and hence
is a classic for drums (snare) and vocals. In comparison with
the first variation, the second one features more high-end sparkle.
Concert: Here, you can select between a small theater and a
large hall. Although this program is similar to studio (see below)
it features more presence which adds to its “lively” character.
Stage: Is well suited to dissipating the sound of a keyboard or
an acoustic guitar.
Room: You can clearly hear the walls of the room. A useful
program for reverb that isn’t directly noticable (rap, hip hop
vocals) or to make dry recordings of instruments sound natural
again.
Studio: This simulation of a middle to large-sized room is also
available in two variations. Both variations sound very natural.
Very all-round effect.
Small Hall: Simulates a small, lively (strongly reflecting) hall
and is perfect for processing drums.
Ambience: Reproduces a middle-sized room without late
reflections.
Early Reflections: The initial reflections of this room are
clearly audible. This effect is a classic for dynamic signals (drums,
percussion, slap bass etc.).
Spring Reverb: Simulates a classic spring reverberation.
Gated Reverb: This effect synthetically cuts off reverberation
after a period of time. It is famous in the song “In the Air Tonight”
by Phil Collins. The variations differ in the reverb length.
Reverse Reverb: This is a reverberation in which the envelope
is reversed—it slowly gets louder.
Phaser: With the phaser, a second, phase-shifted signal is
added to the original audio signal. The resulting sound is thicker
and above all livelier. This effect is often used for guitar sounds
and keyboards. In the ’70s, it was also extensively used for
other instruments like electric pianos. The PMX2000 offers you
four different phaser variations.
Rotary Speaker: The simulation of a classic effect that is
normally generated with a very heavy enclosure comprising
(slow or fast) rotating speakers.
Delay: A delay of the input signal with various repetitions.
Different tempo settings (ten variations in total) allow interesting
delay effects.
Echo: Similar to the stereo delay, with the difference being
that the repetitions have less presence. This simulates the
character of the original tape echo that was used before the
digital era and can be thought of as a “Vintage Sound”.
Multi Tap: A delay effect with changing stereo positioning.
Four variations are available.
Chorus & Reverb: This algorithm combines the popular
chorus with a reverb effect. Taking all variations into account,
they differ in the length of reverb.
Flanger & Reverb: The combination of flanger and reverb effects.
Phaser & Reverb: The combination of a classic stereo phaser
and a reverb effect. Here, too, the phaser is combined with
different reverb types.
Rotary Speaker & Reverb: A real classic, the rotary speaker
effect, is processed with a reverb effect. This effect works
especially well with keyboards and guitars.
Delay & Reverb: Delay and reverb is the most common
combination for vocals, solo guitars, etc.
Pitch & Reverb: The pitch shifter slightly detunes the audio
signal, while the reverb adds ambience to the signal.
Delay & Chorus: While the chorus can contribute to a
wideness of the signal, interesting repetition effects can be
adjusted with the delay. Vocals can be given a distinctive effect
without making the voice sounding blurred.
Delay & Flanger: This effect is just right for creating a modern,
slightly “spacey” vocal sound.
Chorus: This effect slightly detunes the original signal. A
very pleasant detune effect is created in connection with the
pitch variation. The chorus effect is quite often and extensively
used for dispersing signals—in such a variety of applications
that any recommendation would mean a limitation of their use.
The variations available here range from slow to fast chorus
effects.
Symphonic: This effect creates the sound of an eight-person (!)
vocal chorus.
Flanger: The word “flange” means “tape spool”, and this
explains the characteristics of the effect. Originally the flanger
effect was generated with two tape recorders which ran
synchronously. The same audio signal was recorded on both
machines. If you put a finger on the left spool of one of the
machines, the spool and the playback speed are slowed down.
The generated delay results in phase shifting of the signals.
Please choose either “medium flanger” or one of the “bright
flanger” programs, which feature an increase in presence.
6
Delay & Pitch: A repetition of the audio signal, with an
oscillatory effect added by the pitch shifter.
3-Voice Pitch: The pitch effect can be used to produce a
cartoon-character type voice effect.
LFO Bandpass: Filters, in general, influence the frequency
response of a signal. A low-pass filter allows low frequencies
to pass and suppresses high frequencies, while a high pass
filter allows high frequencies to pass and suppresses low
frequencies. This LFO bandpass effect is complemented by
modulation due to a LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator).
Vocal Distortion: This effect is very hip when used on vocals
and drum loops.
Vinylizer: This effect adds clicks and noise to your audio
signal, simulating old vinyl records.
3. EFFECTS PROCESSOR
EUROPOWER PMX2000
Space Radio: Here, the typical sound of scanning an FM
tuner is simulated. This can be a very interesting effect when
sound-tracking radio plays.
Test Tone: Use this 1 kHz test tone to facilitate P.A. level setting.
4. INSTALLATION
4.1 Mains voltage
Before connecting the PMX2000 to the mains, please
