    1. Introduction
    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.
    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 full, 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.
    Multi-effects processor
    Additionally, your XENYX mixing console has an 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.



    ◊ 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.

    1.1 General mixing console functions
    A mixing console fulfils three main functions:
    • Signal processing:

    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.
    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 CD/tape
    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.

    1.2 The user’s manual
    The user’s manual is designed to give you both an overview of the controls,
    as well as detailed information on how to use them. In order to help you
    understand the links between the controls, we have arranged them in groups
    according to their function. If you need to know more about specific issues,
    please visit our website at http://behringer.com. Additional information and
    explanations about various music industry/audio technology terminology
    can be found on individual product pages as well as in the glossary area
    of behringer.com.
    ◊ The block diagram supplied with the mixing console gives you an

    overview of the connections between the inputs and outputs, as well
    as the associated switches and controls.
    For the moment, just try and trace the signal path from the microphone input
    to the FX SEND connector. Don’t be put off by the huge range of possibilities;
    it’s easier than you think! If you look at the overview of the controls at the same
    time, you’ll be able to quickly familiarize yourself with your mixing console and
    you’ll soon be making the most of all its many possibilities.

    Fig. 2.1: Connectors and controls on the mono channels

    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”.
    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!
    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 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.

  • Page 6


    XENYX 1202FX/1002FX User Manual

    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.

    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

    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.
    In addition, the mono channels are equipped with a steep LOW CUT filter
    (slope at 18 dB/oct., -3 dB at 75 Hz) 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.
    Fig. 2.2: Connectors and controls on the stereo channels

    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.
    This means that the mix between dry signal and effect remains at the level
    determined by the channel’s aux send, irrespective of the channel fader setting.
    If this were not the case, the effects signal of the channel would remain audible
    even when the fader is lowered to zero. With XENYX mixing consoles, the channel
    fader is called LEVEL control.
    In the 1202FX/1002FX, 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 (-∞).
    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.

    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.
    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.
    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 LEVEL control determines the volume of the channel being sent to the
    main mix.



    The LEVEL control determines the level of the channel signal in the main mix.

    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).

    ◊ 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!

    XENYX 1202FX/1002FX User Manual

    2.3 Connector array of the main section

    For mastering, using a stereo compressor such as the COMPOSER PRO-XL
    MDX2600 can be recommended. Use it to custom-tailor the dynamic
    characteristics of your signal to the dynamic range of the recording equipment
    you are using. The signal is in this case passed on from the compressor into
    the recorder.

    Fig. 2.3: Connectors of the main section

    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.

    The CD/TAPE 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. cassette recorder, minidisk player, sound card etc.).
    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

    ◊ 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!
    The stereo PHONES connector (at the top of the connector panel) is where
    headphones are connected. The unbalanced CTRL ROOM OUT connectors carry
    the summed effects and main mix signals as well as soloed channel signals.
    The PHONES/CONTROL ROOM control in the main section adjusts the level of both
    headphones and main monitor outputs.
    The MAIN OUT connectors are unbalanced mono connectors. The main mix
    signal appears here at a level of 0 dBu. The MAIN MIX fader adjusts the volume of
    these outputs. Depending on how you wish to use your mixer and which gear you
    own, you can connect the following equipment:
    Live PA systems:
    A stereo dynamics processor (optional), stereo equalizer (optional) and the stereo
    power amplifier for full-range loudspeakers with passive crossovers.
    If you wish to use multi-way loudspeaker systems without an integrated
    crossover, you have to use an active crossover and several power amplifiers.
    Often, limiters are already built into active crossovers (e.g. BEHRINGER
    SUPER-X PRO CX2310 and ULTRADRIVE PRO DCX2496). Active crossovers are
    implemented directly before the power amplifier, and they divide the frequency
    range into several segments that are first amplified in the amplifiers and then
    passed on to the corresponding loudspeakers.

    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.

    2.5 Digital effects processor

    The blue POWER LED indicates that the console is powered on.
    The 4-segment display accurately displays the relevant signal level.
    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.
    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.
    When recording to an analog device, the VU meters of the recording machine
    should reach approx. +3 dB with low-frequency signals (e.g. kick drum). Due to
    their inertia VU meters tend to display too low a signal level at frequencies above
    1 kHz. This is why, for example, a Hi-Hat should only be driven as far as -10 dB.
    Snare drums should be driven to approx. 0 dB.
    ◊ 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.
    Use the MAIN MIX fader to adjust the volume of the main out.
    Use the PHONES/CONTROL ROOM control to adjust the signal level of the
    CONTROL ROOM and PHONES outputs.
    When the CD/TAPE TO MIX switch is pressed, the CD/tape input is assigned to
    the main mix providing an additional input for tape machines, MIDI instruments
    or other signal sources that do not require any processing.
    Press the CD/TAPE TO CTRL switch if you want to monitor the CD/tape input 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).
    ◊ If you are recording a signal via the TAPE OUTPUT and wish to

    listen to this simultaneously via the CD/TAPE INPUT, do not use the
    CD/TAPE TO MIX switch. Doing this would create a feedback loop,
    since the signal would be routed, via the main mix, back to tape via the
    TAPE OUTPUT. To monitor the CD/TAPE INPUT, use the CD/TAPE TO CTRL
    switch to assign the tape signal to the monitor(s) or headphones.
    This will avoid the tape signal being routed to the TAPE OUTPUT.
    If you want to monitor only the effects signal in your headphones or monitor
    speaker(s), press the FX TO CTRL switch. Now the signal of the effects processor
    can be monitored alone, and the main mix and/or CD/tape signal is no longer
    present on the phone and control room outputs.

    Fig. 2.5: Effects section

    The XENYX 1202FX/1002FX features a built-in digital stereo effects processor.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    The appendix contains an overview of all presets of the multi effects processor.

    Even though most of the tasks in a studio can nowadays be accomplished using
    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.
    Connect your sound sources to the microphone/line inputs of the mixing
    console. Connect the master machine (DAT/minidisk recorder) to the
    main outputs. Your monitor speakers are connected to the control room
    outputs; the headphones are connected to the headphone output.
    Now, connect the CD/tape outputs to the sound card inputs on your DAW
    (Digital Audio Workstation). Connect the outputs of the sound card in your
    computer to the CD/tape inputs.

    Recording and playback:
    Once in the mixing console, the recording signal is pre-amplified, EQ’ed and
    is then routed to the main bus. Use the LEVEL control to adjust the recording
    signal level. The overall level of the signal going to the computer is adjusted
    using the MAIN MIX fader. To make sure that the signal is actually being recorded,
    use either the phones bus or the control room bus to monitor not the main
    mix signal (i.e. the output signal of the mixing console, before the recording);
    instead, monitor the returns of the sound card that is connected to the CD/tape
    inputs. To this end, press the CD/TAPE TO CTRL switch and adjust the monitoring
    volume using the PHONES/CONTROL ROOM control. Doing so, you can record
    additional tracks in addition to a signal already brought in (so-called overdubs).
    Use the direct monitoring function of your DAW.
    ◊ With this application, the CD/TAPE TO MIX switch should not be

    pressed; otherwise, the playback signal from the sound card output
    would be routed back to the computer and would be added to the
    recording. This would not only be undesirable, it would also create a
    feedback loop.

    Fig. 3.2: Live application of the 1202FX

    This illustration shows a typical arrangement for a live setup. Two vocal
    microphones and the line outputs of a guitar and a bass amplifier are connected
    to the mono channels of the 1202FX. A keyboard and a drum computer are
    connected to the stereo channels. The power amplifier in your sound system is
    connected to the main outputs; equipment such as compressors, equalizers or
    crossovers are located between the mixer and the amp in the signal path. If you
    wish to make a live recording, you can connect your recording equipment (in this
    case, a minidisk recorder) to the CD/tape outputs. A CD player that is playing
    during intermissions is connected via the CD/tape inputs. If you connect

    a recorder/player combo (e. g. a tape deck recorder), the CD/tape to Mix switch
    should not be pressed during a recording because this way the signal intended
    for recording would be directly re-routed back to the mixing console, and then
    back to the recorder... this would cause a feedback loop as soon as you hit the
    record button. A loud, unpleasant, even painful sound would result.
    If you are using an external effects processor (wired as shown in the illustration),
    please make sure that the FX SEND control in channel 11/12 is turned all the way
    down counterclockwise to avoid creating a feedback loop.

    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

    cold (-ve)
    hot (+ve)

    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

    For connection of balanced and unbalanced plugs,
    ring and sleeve have to be bridged at the stereo plug.

    heat up considerably during operation. This is completely normal.

    4.2 Audio connections
    You will need a large number of cables for different applications. The illustrations
    below show how the connectors should be wired. Be sure to use only
    high-grade cables.
    Please use commercial RCA cables to connect the CD/tape 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).
    ◊ Caution! Never use unbalanced XLR connectors (PIN 1 and 3 connected)

    on the MIC input connectors when using the phantom power supply.
    Balanced use with XLR connectors

    1 = ground/shield
    2 = hot (+ve)
    3 = cold (-ve)

    For unbalanced use, pin 1 and pin 3
    have to be bridged
