"My rep, Katie Manning , is HIGHLY knowledgeable in areas of sound reinforcement, instrument pickups, and various other stuff I am frequently in need of. We've had long conversations about PA equipment, audio, and many other topics. He's always available to help and put in his .02 worth, and HE KNOWS his stuff. AudioBuy is my go-to for gear of all kinds, and I'm never disappointed with my purchases. If anything's not just right, Chris takes care of it right away. Hometown service from a mail order store? I'll take that!" is one of those few places where you can still talk to a person that actually cares and not just for the big-ticket items. I have ordered more than usual this year and been very satisfied with the results. Their guitar techs know what they're doing setting up guitars. I referred a friend to my salesman and he was very pleased with the results as well. If you want "real" service, AudioBuy is the place to go.

Behringer XR18 | AudioBuy Review

Behringer describe their XR18 as an “18-channel, 12-bus digital mixer for iPad/Android tablets, with 16 programmable Midas preamps, integrated Wi-Fi module and multi-channel USB audio interface”. When I read this, it made the XR18 sound like something I’d be interested in any day of the week, and around the same time, a live job came up for which I needed a very compact, low-profile system. When I looked at the physical size of the unit and the overall cost of purchasing one, out came the credit card, and a couple of days later I owned one. Here, I’ll be giving you a description of the XR18’s main capabilities, and my impressions of owning and using it as a live-sound mixer.

One of the things which often confuses those new to digital consoles is the setting up of auxiliary sends — especially for anyone not used to the ‘sends on faders’ approach. I’ve witnessed more than a few near-panic situations where someone on stage is (politely, of course) requesting more of this, less of that, some reverb over here and none over there, I hate my guitar and so on... and the poor guy on the desk is frantically trying to work out why the main mix is sounding all wrong and then alas, too late, noticing the ‘sends on faders’ button flashing happily. The XR18 control app allows aux sends to be controlled by ‘sends on faders’ or by direct per-channel adjustment using the ‘sends’ tab, so whichever method you’re used to, it’s all here ready to be used without fear or panic. That’s another vote for the lack of a physical control surface, in my book: for some reason I’m much more inclined to turn the wrong knob or push the wrong button than to click or drag the wrong element on a computer screen, so perhaps it’s just a deep-rooted attraction to twiddling and an aversion to clicking. I don’t know, but it seems to work.

Behringer XR18 Review Conclusion

As I said at the beginning, this is only a fairly superficial look at the XR18, and if this sounds like your kind of product, then download the X-Air app from the website and have a good play — there is a lot of additional information on there, and you can look at the full user manual via Behringer’s ‘Wiki manual’ page (at first it seems as if you are looking at the X32 manual, but scroll down and you’ll find the XR18).
My experience of the XR18 has so far been very positive. It’s a great little product which does everything you’d expect from something this compact and at this price, and it does it very well indeed. I’m particularly impressed by the control app design: I can’t think of anything about it I’d change (not this early on in our relationship, anyway), and every time I use it I keep thinking ‘that’s neat’ or ‘that’s exactly how I’d have designed it’. The XR18 has proved to be one of the best things I’ve bought in a long time and I think it’s going to be a very useful and much-used piece of kit in my inventory for the forseeable future.
