    First of all, as a pro sound engineer and recent owner of the Behringer FLOW 8 mixer, I’d like to say THANK YOU to create a small digital mixer with all its capabilities, that I waited since a long time to do lots of things.
    To be more versatile, the FLOW 8 could have some improvements. Some fonctions are really missing, others could be useful. This could make the FLOW 8 to be used in many other situations.
    I think and hope these modifications can be achieved with ease, thanks to app and firmware updates.

    List of request for FLOW 8 Mixer & App improvements:
    Essentials improvements:
    - The possibility to switch MON 1 & MON 2 :  PRE / POST Fader (selectable per channel)
    (exemple -> fade out in LR for FOH, and fade out in the MON on stage at the same time)
    - MUTE et SOLO per channel -> access in the App mixer page (not only in the channel settings)
    - CLEAR SOLO access from Mixer surface (really annoying from the app only)
    - Phase Reverse (⍉) on microphones inputs 1- 2 - 3 - 4  (exemple to reverse the bottom mic of a snare)
    - Compressor Settings (With + parameters) to have access to Threshold / Ratio / Attack / Release
    - Noise Gate ( basic at least ) on Inputs channels (can be really useful)
    - Access Output Delay in the App - (Delta 0…341ms)
    - MUTE et SOLO per channel -> possibility to control from Mixer surface
    (Mute, Solo, Pan, and maybe also EQ, Gate, Comp, Limiter…)
    - Using MUTE switch as a Mute Group (selectable per channel)
    - Routing - > send FX returns to MON 1 or MON 2 or phones (not only in LR mix)

    If possible technically with the FLOW 8:
    - Provide Phantom Power +48 V on Mic 3 / 4 channels
    - Unlink Inputs 5/6 & 7/8 (2 x stereo) To 5, 6, 7, 8 (4 x mono inputs)
    (even with the same physical fader for the channels 5/6 & 7/8, could be controlled in the app or with a different Gain, Eq etc..)
    - Channel Input Delay can be useful (for exemple: monitoring audio from video)
    - Possibility Unlink Output equalizers
    - Possibility L/R Stereo summing to Mono

    And of course: for a next generation of FLOW mixer, motorized faders could be awesome ; )
    Thank You and Cheers !

    Hi, I am interested in buying a QX1832USB, QX2222USB or QX2442USB series mixer.I would be grateful if someone can tell me where to find the block diagrams so I can understand their potentialities and make a better decision.
    Thanks for the help.

    Hi, as per title, when i plug in a headphone to behringer 1202fx headphone jack, the microphone is not heard. But when i plug the headphone to main out, i can hear the mic.

     

    Is this normal? Whats the reason behind this design?

    Thanks

    While I'm not a newbie, I'm not an expert either, and I'm having difficulty getting simple reverb on a vocal channel, either via inserting into the channel, or send/return. I have the Hall Reverb set up in the FX1 slot. Sending channel 1 (vocal) to FX1, and FX1 is sending signal to the Main. The meters display indicates everything is getting/sending signal, yet I don't hear any reverb in either headphones or main signal routed through amp and speaker. Same issue if I try to insert reverb into channel 1.....no reverb. I have a feeling there is a button somewhere that isn't pushed or set right.

    I'm using the Xair app on the Ipad to run an XR 16 mixer. Have looked at all the pertinent YT videos and am not having any success. On a separate rant, the app illustrated on the YT videos does not resemble the app I'm currently using. Would love to see something on YT using the current XAir app.

    Thanks for the help.

      schilcur2112 Ok, an little update after messing it more this morning. I was able to get reverb by inserting Effect 1 (or any of the others) into the Main channel. While I'm happy to actually get any reverb, inserting it into the mains is not the way to do it. However, bolstered by this success I went back to Channel 1 and inserted Effect 1 and......nothing. But, when I inserted effect 2 (3 and 4), they worked. I went back and edited effect 1 to be identical to effect 2 and I still get nothing when inserting effect 1, which makes absolutely no sense, unless something, somewhere, in effect 1 channel settings is set wrong. Still, I can't get send/return method to work with any of the effect returns (1 thru 4). Pic below captures the meters page showing signal supposedly going to all the right places.

      Paul_Vannatto Goto the FX screen where you can see the 4 FX slots. What FX is assigned to slot 1? Is the Insert button selected? From what you describe, in all likelihood, the Insert button is selected and the inputs are assigned as an insert to something you are not using. If you want it to be a sends/return (sidechain), change the input assignment to Off.

      If you want reverb, you want it as a sidechain (sends to FX1 and returned to FX1L/FX1R) since reverbs do not have a wet/dry mix adjustment. Setting a reverb as an insert will only give you 100% reverb output, which you don't want.

      Paul V, appreciate the suggestion. I'm pretty sure I tried turning off all the insert buttons, but I'll go back and verify. Will update after I give it a try. Thanks.

      schilcur2112 ok, partial success. Turned off insert everywhere....on the effects themselves, and in the individual channels. Sending channel one signal to effect 1 (vintage reverb), increase fader on effect 1, and I get reverb. Perfect! Try to set up the exact same thing for channel two/effect two and channel 3/effect three and I get no reverb. If I send channel 2 or 3 to effect 1, I get reverb. This is the kind of thing that aggravates me.....do exactly the same thing and get a different result. Is it possible that effects 2 and 3 are routed differently? When routing ch2/eff2 and ch3/eff3 I can see in the effects window that both eff2 and eff3 are getting and outputting signal, same as ch1/eff1 when I do hear reverb.

      Paul_Vannatto Are the FX2L/2R and FX3L/3R return channel strips muted or faders all the way down? What about the FX2 and FX3 buses (sends) - are they muted or faders all the way down? Also check the FX2L/FX2R and FX3L/FX3R LR is enabled (on the Main screen).

    Hello, 

     

    Since today i'm having issues with the aux in of my x32 rack. 

    When I connect a mp3 player or some thing else that streams music, i can hear it very silently in the background. And there is a heavy 'boiling' sound. This is when i'm cranking it up very high. 

    I'm running 4.06 firmware

      Paul_Vannatto Explain how you have the mp3 player connected to the X32 Rack - what cable, which Aux In?

      Could this be a pre amp issue?

    • killerart666
      Paul_Vannatto Due to lack of detailed explanation of your setup (which I asked for), I can only assume that you are using a 3.5mm stereo plug to 6.35mm stereo plug cable and plugging into one of the Aux In, thinking that the Aux In is a stereo input. It is not. Rather it is a balanced TRS input. If you send a stereo signal to a balanced TRS input, you will get cancellation of the signal which will result in very low volume and odd sounding results. The cable you need to connect an MP3 player to the X32 Rack is a 3.5mm stereo plug to two 6.3mm mono plugs and plugged into two Aux In (eg. Aux In 1/2).

    Hello,

    i really use many years Behringer Products, but in my and from sond engineers opinion e are missing new innovation. example Touch screen or optical connection between mixing and S16(Example). 

    So how your next innovation??

    I think I understand when routing inputs to the Card, it sends the inputs "after the preamp". But what does that mean? Is gain part of the preamp? EQ? Any Dynamics or Gating? Not the raw input, correct? Certainly not the fader, mute, solo controls, as those are after the preamp and are parts of the input channel, correct?

      Nigel67 Hi DanielThompson. 'After the preamp' means that the signal is taken straight after the analogue mic amp gain stage, whether it is the mic amp from an IO box or the mic amps from the XLRs built into the rear of the console (Local Inputs).

    • Hi, I am very new to recording. Recently I got myself a behringer xenyx q802usb and when come to setup, I got a few issues.

     

    • Hissing sound during playback

    When I playback the record, there a hissing sound all over on the sound. I tried noise reduction in the app but still there's a hissing sound is too loud and it effects the sound I want.

    I lowered the microphone levels and it's seem worked a little but there's still a lots of others hissing sound like electricity and it's effected the sound I want. (No hissing sound heard when recording)

    Any suggestions how to fix it? (I have confirmed it is not surrounding noise)

    • Outputs

    When I play songs or YouTube through the mixer, I noticed that I could only hear the background songs. The vocal and human sound are extremely small or totally missing. I put up the gain, it works a little but at the same time the noise are also been turn up.(Checked the connecting cables, not the issue)

    Hello!

    I purchased a GOXLR audio mixer to use with my ATEM Extreme video switcher.  Currently I have a 3.5mm audio line out to the mic 1 input on the ATEM Extreme.  I am using a Shure sm7b xlr microphone.  The sound is horrible and unstable.  Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers,

    Michael

      DaveMorrison Make sure the ATEM mini is set for line level input (as opposed to mic level). The ATEM inputs are stereo—balanced outputs and stereo inputs don't normally mix well. If you are using a trs "aux cable", try connecting to the headphone jack instead of the line output.

      Hey Dave, thank you for the reply and insight! I did change the input to line level in the software and unfortunately it didn't change the audio quality. I will try connecting to the headphone jack. An engineer at the local radio station popped by yesterday and said I needed to get a line level to mic level adapter and if that doesn't work, get a DBX Mic processor. I just spoke to a BM representative and he said the ATEM's audio source only accepts an unbalanced audio signal. He said that perhaps the GOXLR sends a balanced audio signal and that could be the issue. Thanks again, cheers!
