Extreme Versatility
From input to output, BEHRINGER UFX
Series mixers are all about functionality,
ease of use and ultimate versatility.
Mono channels feature our legendary
XENYX mic preamps, praised the world
over by professional audio engineers for
their sonic clarity and high-headroom
performance. Mono channels accept
both balanced XLR and 1/4" TRS, as well
as unbalanced 1/4" TS connections.
A Line/Hi-Z switch is also provided
on channels 1 & 2 so you can connect
acoustic, electric and bass guitars without
the need for an external DI box.

Common Features
Premium ultra low-noise,
high headroom analog mixer with
integrated 24-Bit/96 kHz USB/
FireWire interface and 16-track
USB recorder
UFX Series mixers make it easy to
capture your live performances or home
recording sessions. Just plug a USB
stick into the rear panel, hit the record
button on the 16-track recorder control
interface—then relax and enjoy the show.
When you get home from the gig, you
can even use control any compatible
computer based DAW directly from your
UFX mixer via MIDI.
British EQ
The British consoles of the 1960s and
‘70s changed the sound of rock and roll.
Without them, the British Invasion might
not have even happened. The channel
EQ on our XENYX mixers is based on
that very same circuitry, allowing you to
imbue signals with incredible warmth and
detailed musical character. Even when
applied generously, these equalizers
exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb
audio quality.
Mono channels on the UFX1204
benefit from our highly musical
“British” 3-band EQ with semi-parametric
Mid control, allowing you to dial in
the frequency center and boost or cut
by as much as 15 dB. Channel EQ on
the UFX1604 is an expanded 4-band
version with sweepable Hi and Low Mids,
providing even more tonal optimization.
Both models feature individually
switchable, true +48 V phantom
power on all mono channels so you can
use top-of-the-line studio condenser
microphones—a feature virtually
unheard of on a mixer in this class!
Stereo channels support balanced
and unbalanced 1/4" Line connections
and our 4-band “British” EQs are
provided for tonal adjustment.
All channels feature 4 Aux Sends,
switchable Pre/Post FireWire Sends,
Mute/Alt 3-4 functionality and
Built-in 16x4 interface connects
directly to your computer and
supports Mac OS X and Windows XP
or higher
Built-in 16 x 4 USB/FireWire Interface and 16-Track USB-Recorder
super-smooth, long-wearing 100 mm
logarithmic-taper faders (UFX1204 only
for Main Mix fader, channel faders
are 60 mm).
What's a Compressor?
Ask professional sound engineers
what their favorite piece of external
processing gear is and the response
will be virtually unanimous – dynamic
compression. What's compression?
Glad you asked. Compression limits the
dynamic range of a signal, lowering the
level of loud sounds and turning up softer
sounds to achieve sonic balance. But
applying compression is a delicate art
that many novice, and even intermediate
sound techs have difficulty mastering.
Our “one-knob” compression is available
on all mono channels and is easy to
operate, even for entry-level users.
Now you can easily dial in the perfect
amount of compression for instruments
and vocals, creating powerful mixes
with punch and clarity. Our “one-knob”
compressors come standard on each and
every XENYX QX Series USB mixer.
FX and Functionality
We gave the UFX1204 a very high-end
stereo FX processor with 16 editable
presets that include reverb, chorus,
flanger, delay, phaser, multi-effects and
Tap function for the ultimate in live
performance enhancement. And because
you can never have too much of a good
thing, we armed the UFX1604 with not
one, but two of these powerful effects
engines for even more versatility.
Add to this an extensive Talkback
section with onboard Mic; mono channel
Inserts; up to 4 stereo Aux Returns;
a plethora of output options; plus free
software downloads and more—and
you’ve got the incredible new XENYX UFX
Series mixers from BEHRINGER!
