1. Introduction
1.1 General mixing console functions
The XENYX Series represents a milestone in the development of mixing console
technology. With the new XENYX microphone preamps including phantom power
as an option, balanced line inputs and a powerful effects section, the mixing
consoles in the XENYX Series are optimally equipped for live and studio
applications. Owing to state-of-the-art circuitry your XENYX console produces
a warm analog sound that is unrivalled. With the addition of the latest digital
technology these best-in-class consoles combine the advantages of both analog
and digital technology.
A mixing console fulfils three main functions:
The microphone channels feature high-end XENYX Mic Preamps that compare
well with costly outboard preamps in terms of sound quality and dynamics and
boast the following features:
• 130 dB dynamic range for an incredible amount of headroom
• A bandwidth ranging from below 10 Hz to over 200 kHz for crystal-clear
reproduction of even the finest nuances
• The extremely low-noise and distortion-free circuitry guarantees absolutely
natural and transparent signal reproduction
• They are perfectly matched to every conceivable microphone with up to
60 dB gain and +48 volt phantom power supply
• They enable you to use the greatly extended dynamic range of your
24-bit/192-kHz HD recorder to the fullest, thereby maintaining optimal
audio quality
“British EQ”
The equalizers used for the XENYX Series are based on the legendary circuitry of
top-notch consoles made in Britain, which are renowned throughout the world
for their incredibly warm and musical sound character. Even with extreme gain
settings these equalizers ensure outstanding audio properties.
KLARK TEKNIK FX Processor
Additionally, your XENYX mixing console has a KLARK TEKNIK effects processor
with 24-bit A/D and D/A converters included, which gives you 100 presets
producing first-class reverb, delay and modulation effects plus numerous
multi-effects in excellent audio quality.
!!
Caution!
◊ We should like to draw your attention to the fact that extreme volumes
may damage your hearing and/or your headphones or loudspeakers.
Turn the MAIN MIX control and PHONES control in the main section fully
counterclockwise before you switch on the unit. Always be careful to
set appropriate volume levels.
• Signal processing:
Preamplification
Microphones convert sound waves into voltage that has to be amplified
several-fold; then, this voltage is turned into sound that is reproduced
in a loudspeaker. Because micro­phone capsules are very delicate in their
construction, output voltage is very low and therefore susceptible to
interference. Therefore, mic signal voltage is amplified directly at the mixer
input to a higher signal level that is less prone to interference. This higher,
interference-safe signal level has to be achieved through amplification using
an amplifier of the highest quality in order to amplify the signal and add
as little noise to it as possible. The XENYX Mic Preamp performs this role
beautifully, leaving no traces of noise or sound coloration. Interference that
could take place at the preamplification level could affect signal quality
and purity, and would then be passed on to all other devices, resulting in
inaccurate sounding program during recording or playback.
Level-setting
Signals fed into the mixer using a DI-box (Direct Injection) or the output of a
sound card or a keyboard, often have to be adjusted to the operating level of
your mixing console.
Frequency response correction
Using the equalizers found in each channel strip, you can simply, quickly and
effectively adjust the way a signal sounds.
• Signal distribution:
Individual, processed signals from the channel strips are compiled on
busses and are fed into the main section for further processing. Connections
for recording equipment, power amplifiers, headphones as well as RCA
connectors are available here. The mix is sent to the internal FX processors or
external effects processors via aux sends and returns. Similarly, a mix can be
created for the musicians on the stage (monitor mix).
• Mix:
All other mixing console functions fall under this vital category. Creating a
mix means primarily adjusting the volume levels of individual instruments
and voices to one another as well as giving them the appropriate weight
within the overall frequency spectrum. Likewise, you’ll have to sensibly
spread individual voices across the stereo image of a signal. At the end of
this process, adjusting the level of the entire mix to other equipment in the
signal path is required (e. g. recorder/crossover/amplifier).
The interface of BEHRINGER mixing consoles is optimized for these tasks,
enabling you to easily keep track of the signal path.

Fig. 2.1: Connectors and controls on the mono channels
MIC
Each mono input channel offers a balanced microphone input via the XLR
connector and also features switchable +48 V phantom power supply for
condenser microphones. The XENYX preamps provide undistorted and noise-free
gain as is typically known only from costly outboard preamps.
◊ Please mute your playback system before you activate the phantom
power supply to prevent switch-on thumps being directed to
your loudspeakers. Please also note the instructions in chapter
2.4 “Main section”.
LINE IN
Each mono input also features a balanced line input on a ¼" connector.
Unbalanced devices (mono connectors) can also be connected to these inputs.
◊ Please remember that you can only use either the microphone
or the line input of a channel at any one time. You can never use
both simultaneously!

XENYX QX1202USB/QX1002USB User Manual
GAIN
PAN
Use the GAIN control to adjust the input gain. This control should always be
turned fully counterclockwise whenever you connect or disconnect a signal
source to one of the inputs.
The PAN control determines the position of the channel signal within the stereo
image. This control features a constant-power characteristic, which means the
signal is always maintained at a constant level, irrespective of position in the
stereo panorama.
The scale has 2 different value ranges: the first value range (+10 to +60 dB)
refers to the MIC input and shows the amplification for the signals fed in there.
The second value range (-10 to +40 dBu) refers to the line input and shows
its sensitivity. The settings for equipment with standard line-level signals
(-10 dBV or +4 dBu) look like this: While the GAIN control is turned all the way
down, connect your equipment. Set the GAIN control to the external devices’
standard output level. If that unit has an output signal level display, it should
show 0 dB during signal peaks. For +4 dBu, turn up GAIN slightly, for -10 dBV a
bit more. Tweaking is done using the CLIP LED.
COMP
Use the COMP knob to adjust the amount of compression effect on the channel.
Compression limits the dynamic range of the audio source, which can help vocals
cut through a mix better, for example. Turn the COMP knob clockwise until the
adjacent LED occasionally lights during speech/singing.
LEVEL
The LEVEL control determines the level of the channel signal in the main mix.
◊ Attention: Since the FX path for the effect processor is connected
post-fader, the LEVEL control has to be turned up in order to get this
channel’s signal to the effects processor!
CLIP
The CLIP-LED’s of the mono channels illuminate when the input signal is driven
too high, which could cause distortion. If this happens, use the GAIN control to
reduce the preamp level until the LED does not light anymore.
2.2 Stereo channels
EQ
All mono input channels include a 3-band equalizer. All bands provide boost or
cut of up to 15 dB. In the central position, the equalizer is inactive.
The circuitry of the British EQs is based on the technology used in the best-known
top-of-the-line consoles and providing a warm sound without any unwanted
side effects. The result are extremely musical equalizers which, unlike simple
equalizers, cause no side effects such as phase shifting or bandwidth limitation,
even with extreme gain settings of ±15 dB.
The upper (HIGH) and the lower band (LOW) are shelving filters that increase
or decrease all frequencies above or below their cut-off frequency. The cut-off
frequencies of the upper and lower band are 12 kHz and 80 Hz respectively.
The mid band is configured as a peak filter with a center frequency of 2.5 kHz.
Unlike shelving filters, the peak filter processes a frequency range that extends
upwards and downwards around its middle frequency.
LOW CUT
In addition, the mono channels are equipped with a steep LOW CUT filter
designed to eliminate unwanted low-frequency signal components. These can
be noises created by hand-held microphones, subsonic noise or plosive sounds
created by highly sensitive microphones.
FX
FX sends enable you to feed signals via a variable control from one or more
channels and sum these signals to a bus. The bus appears at the console’s FX send
output and can be fed from there to an external effects device. The return from
the effects unit is then brought back into the console on the stereo channels.
Each FX send is mono and features up to +15 dB gain.
As the name suggests, the FX sends of the XENYX mixing consoles are intended to
drive effects devices (reverb, delay, etc.) and are therefore configured post-fader.
With XENYX mixing consoles, the channel fader is called LEVEL control.
In the QX1002/1202USB, the FX send is routed directly to the built-in effects
processor. To make sure that the effects processor receives an input signal,
you shouldn’t turn this control all the way to the left (-∞).
Fig. 2.2: Connectors and controls on the stereo channels
LINE IN
Each stereo channel has two balanced line level inputs on ¼" connectors for left
and right channels. If only the connector marked “L” (left) is used, the channel
operates in mono. The stereo channels are designed to handle typical line level
signals. Both inputs will also accept unbalanced connectors.
FX
The FX send of the stereo channels functions similar to that of the mono channels.
However, since the FX send bus is mono, a mono sum is first taken from the stereo
input before it is sent to the FX bus.
7
XENYX QX1202USB/QX1002USB User Manual
BAL
2-TRACK INPUT
The BAL(ANCE) control determines the levels of left and right input signals
relative to each other before both signals are then routed to the main stereo mix
bus. If a channel is operated in mono via the left line input, this control has the
same function as the PAN control used in the mono channels.
The 2-TRACK INPUTs are used to bring an external signal source (e.g. CD player,
tape deck, etc.) into the console. They can also be used as a standard stereo line
input, so the output of a second XENYX or BEHRINGER ULTRALINK PRO MX882 can
be connected. Alternatively the line or tape output of a hi-fi amplifier with source
selection switch could also be hooked up here, allowing you to easily listen to
additional sources (e.g. CD player, MP3 player, sound card etc.).
LEVEL
The LEVEL control determines the volume of the channel being sent to the
main mix.
+4/-10
The stereo inputs of the XENYX have an input sensitivity switch which selects
between +4 dBu and -10 dBV. At -10 dBV (home-recording level), the input is
more sensitive (requires less level to drive it) than at +4 dBu (studio level).
2-TRACK OUTPUT
These connections are laid out as RCA connectors and are wired parallel to
MAIN OUT. Connect the inputs of a computer sound card or a recorder here.
The output signal level is set up using the highly accurate MAIN MIX fader.
2.4 Main section
2.3 Connector array of the main section
CLIP
SIG
Fig. 2.3: Connectors of the main section
FX SEND
The FX SEND connector outputs the signal you picked up from the individual
channels using the FX controls. You can connect this to the input of an external
effects device in order to process the FX bus’ master signal. Once an effects mix is
created, the processed signal can then be routed from the effects device outputs
back into a stereo input.
◊ If the connected effects processor receives no input signal,
the FX SEND control is probably too low. This also goes for the built-in
effects processor.
◊ Adjust your external effects processor to 100% wet (effects signal
only), because the effects signal is added to the main mix along with
the “dry” channel signals.
◊ In this instance, the FX control of the channel being used as an effects
return should be turned fully counterclockwise, otherwise feedback
problems can occur!
PHONES/CTRL ROOM OUT
The stereo PHONES connector (at the top of the connector panel) is where
headphones are connected. The balanced CTRL ROOM OUT connectors carry
the summed effects and main mix signals. The PHONES/CONTROL ROOM
control in the main section adjusts the level of both headphones and main
monitor outputs.
MAIN OUT
The MAIN OUT connectors are balanced mono connectors. The main mix signal
appears here at a level of 0 dBu. The MAIN MIX fader adjusts the volume of
these outputs.
Fig. 2.4: Control elements of the main section
+48 V
The red “+48 V” LED lights up when the phantom power is turned on.
Phantom power is required to operate condenser microphones and is activated
using the +48 V switch located above the +48 V LED.
◊ Connect microphones before you switch on the phantom power supply.
Please do not connect microphones to the mixer (or the stagebox/
wallbox) while the phantom power supply is switched on. In addition,
the monitor/PA loud­speakers should be muted before you activate the
phantom power supply. After switching on, wait approx. one minute to
allow for system stabilization.
◊ Caution! You must never use unbalanced XLR connectors
(PIN 1 and 3 connected) on the MIC input connectors if you want to
use the phantom power supply.
POWER
The POWER LED indicates that the console is powered on.
LEVEL INDICATOR
The 4-segment display accurately displays the relevant signal level.

XENYX QX1202USB/QX1002USB User Manual
LEVEL SETTING:
USB CONNECTOR
To correctly set the gains of the channels, first set the LEVEL controls of the input
channels to their center positions. Then use the GAIN controls to increase the
input amplification until signal peaks show 0 dB on the level meter.
Connect your mixer to a computer using a standard USB cable. This enables a
stereo signal to be sent to and from your mixer and computer. The signal sent
from the mixer to the computer is the same as the main bus. The audio returning
from the computer into the mixer appears directly in the main and/or control
room bus (depending on USB/2TR to MAIN and PHONES/CTRL RM buttons).
When recording to digital recorders, the recorder’s peak meter should not go into
overload. While analog recorders can be overloaded to some extent, creating only
a certain amount of distortion, digital recorders distort quickly when overloaded.
In addition, digital distortion is not only undesirable, but also renders your
recording completely useless.
◊ The CLIP-LED’s of your XENYX display the level virtually independent
of frequency. A recording level of 0 dB is recommended for all
signal types.
MAIN MIX
Insert the USB type B plug into the USB jack on the mixer, and the other end
into a free USB port on your computer. There are no required drivers, but we
recommend that PC users install the ASIO driver which can be downloaded from
behringer.com.
NOTE: The mixer cannot be bus-powered via USB! Always use the included power
adaptor to supply power to the mixer.
2.6 Digital effects processor
Use the MAIN MIX fader to adjust the volume of the main out.
CLIP
PHONES/CONTROL ROOM
SIG
Use the PHONES/CONTROL ROOM control to adjust the signal level of the
CONTROL ROOM and PHONES outputs.
USB/2TR TO MAIN MIX
When the USB/2TR TO MAIN MIX switch is pressed, the 2-Track and USB
inputs are assigned to the main mix, providing an additional input for MP3
players, computers, MIDI instruments or other signal sources that do not require
any processing. Pressing this button automatically mutes the 2-TR OUT/USB
recording signal.
USB/2TR TO PHONES/CTRL RM
Press the USB/2TR TO PHONES/CTRL RM switch if you want to monitor the
2-Track and USB inputs via the CTRL ROOM and PHONES outputs. A typical studio
application of this function is recording music into a digital audio workstation
(DAW) with simultaneous reproduction (see ch. 3.1).
FX TO CONTROL
If you want to monitor only the effects signal in your headphones or monitor
speaker(s), press the FX TO CTRL RM switch. Now the signal of the effects
processor can be monitored alone, and the main mix and/or 2-Track signal is no
longer present on the phone and control room outputs.

Fig. 2.6: Effects section
100 KLARK TEKNIK EFFECTS
The XENYX QX1202USB/QX1002USB features a built-in digital stereo effects
processor designed by KLARK TEKNIK. This effects processor offers a large
number of standard effects such as Hall, Chorus, Flanger, Delay and various
combination effects. Using the FX control, you can feed signals into the effects
processor. The integrated effects module has the advantage of requiring no
wiring. This way, the danger of creating ground loops or uneven signal levels is
eliminated at the outset, completely simplifying the handling.
SIGNAL and CLIP LED
The SIGNAL LED on the effects module shows the presence of a signal whose
level is high enough. This LED should always be on. However, make sure that the
CLIP LED lights up only sporadically. If it is lit constantly, you are overdriving the
effects processor, which leads to unpleasant distortion. If this occurs, turn the
FX controls down somewhat.
PROGRAM
The PROGRAM control has two functions: by turning the PROGRAM control,
you dial the number of an effect. The number of the preset you just dialed up
blinks in the display. To confirm your selection, press the PROGRAM control;
the blinking stops.
Fig 2.5: USB connector
FX TO MAIN
The FX TO MAIN control feeds the effects signal into the main mix. If the control
is turned all the way counterclockwise, no effects signal is present in the sum
signal of the mixing console.

a computer, a mixing console remains an unavoidable piece of equipment that
lets you effectively manage audio inputs and outputs: microphone signals need
to be pre-amplified prior to being recorded, and the quality of microphone
sound is often worked on; recording and playback signals must be routed to the
appropriate connectors or integrated into the mix; the volume of headphones
and studio monitors needs to be adjusted, and so on. The extensively equipped
main section of the XENYX mixing consoles provides concrete benefits to you.
Wiring:
Connect your sound sources to the microphone/line inputs of the mixing console.
Connect a pair of reference speakers (optional) to the main outputs, and connect
a computer to the USB connector on the rear panel. Your monitor speakers are
connected to the control room outputs; the headphones are connected to the
headphone output.
Recording and playback:
Each connected sound source is pre-amplified, EQ'ed and then routed to the
main bus. You may also add one of the onboard effects to any of the signals
(see Chapter 2.6). Use the LEVEL controls to adjust the relative level of your
sources. The main bus is sent to your computer via USB. The performance can be
recorded in your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) and further edited with the
software. To monitor the recording signal and listen back to a recorded track,
press the USB/2-TR TO CTRL RM button. This sends the signal returning from your
computer to monitor speakers connected to the CONTROL ROOM OUT jacks.

Fig 3.2: Live performance with the QX1202USB
The above diagram shows some typical connections for a live performance using
the QX1202USB. Mono sources such as microphones and line-outs from guitar
preamps or DI boxes can be connected to channels 1-4 via XLR or 1/4" cables.
Stereo sources can be connected to channels 5/6 through 11/12 via 1/4" cables.
If an external effects processor is to be used instead of the onboard processor,
connect the FX SEND jack to the input of your processor. Turn the FX knob
up on each channel that you want to add effects to. Connect the outputs
(usually stereo) from the processor to one of the stereo channels as shown
in the diagram. Make sure to leave the FX knob for this stereo channel fully
counterclockwise (off) to avoid feedback loops. Turn the LEVEL knob up on the
stereo channel receiving the processed signal to blend the effects into the mix.
Connect the MAIN OUTPUTS to active speakers or a power amplifier. You may also
connect active floor monitors to the CONTROL ROOM OUTPUTS so the on-stage
talent can hear the mix. The 2-Track inputs can be used to connect an MP3
player for music between sets, and the 2-Track outputs can be used to connect a
digital recorder.
4. Installation
4.1 Mains connection
AC POWER IN
Connect the power supply to the 3-pin mains connector on the rear of the
console. Use the AC adapter supplied to connect the console to the mains.
The adapter complies with all applicable safety standards.
◊ Please use only the power supply unit provided with the console.
◊ Never connect the XENYX to the power supply unit while the latter is
connected to the mains! First connect the console to the power supply
unit, then connect the power supply unit to the mains.
◊ Please note that both the power supply unit and the mixing console
heat up considerably during operation. This is completely normal.

Please use commercial RCA cables to connect the 2-Track inputs and outputs.
You can, of course, also connect unbalanced equipment to the balanced inputs/
outputs. To do this, use either mono plugs or stereo plugs with the ring and
sleeve bridged (pins 1 and 3 in the case of XLR connectors).
