Which mixer to use with SP404 for beat making setup


could anyone point me in the direction of the type of mixer I should use with an SP404 for a beatmaking/recording set up. I am after something reasonably cheap, doesn’t need heaps of inputs. 

I’m hoping to be able to use the mixer to record/mix a few more Mics into the SP404s mic in. I’m hoping to use this to have a few mics on the drums

I’m hoping to be able to use the mixer without any laptops etc


I’m not even sure if this is possible, thanks al for your help! 



Practice mixer

Hi guys,

I have an Alesis crimson ii, and use a Behringer 250watt amp. I have a small practice room in the garage and currently just using my smartphone to play backing tracks through, I am absolutely useless when it comes to technology -so do I need a mixer? It's just me drummin away so i wouldn't want anything too fancy but i think it could all sound better?

Any help or recommendations would be great! Thanks

Line ins before mic preamp on some mixers

I noticed that many mixers such as the Behringer hard wire their line inputs (without even a switch) in parallel with the mic input to the mic preamps. Yes, they do have a drop resistor but that's all. My concern is that the signal is being dropped and then amplified back up - thus adding another stage and more noise. No switch also means both a mic and a line source can be both "on" at the same time. I was thinking of adding a small switch and routing the line input to just after the mic preamp. Here I am just looking for reactions and suggestions.

Behringer X1222usb help

I recently purchased the Behringer X1222usb mixer and need some help. I run a podcast and cannot get audio from online videos to record to my daw. I can hear the audio coming through the mixer, and my mic signal is recorded fine. Is it possible with this mixer to record audio from both microphone and online video with this mixer?

Connecting two mixers help!

I have a 32 channel analog Behringer . I want to connect another recording mixer To the 32 channel. This sub mixer is to be connected to my desktop via usb. Is this possible? I am finding it hard to mono out from my live mixer to use live band and church service for our website because the sound is terrible. I want a separate audio track that is manageable and another channel for video. The video in this concern is irrelevant. Pls help. Mackieprofx 12 ch.

Connecting mixers together

In our church, apart from the main church singers, a rented group also uses our mixers etc often causing issues. We are planning to add a new mixer which we do not wish the renters to use.
So we were thinking of connecting all inputs to the mixer and the outputs from the mixer to speakers using Y connectors and locking the new mixer when we are not using it. Meaning only one mixer will be powered ON at a time. Will this work or any problems we might face?

Please comment.

Help getting audio from mixer to computer

Hello everyone I need help figuring out the Yamaha MG124CX. So basically my Uni has a dj room and it has a microphone that I can connect into it (but not in to my macbook) and rca cable to aux. The mixer recognizes audio from the mic, and I can hear it on the speakers. Reading manuals and online, I connected the rca cable in to rec out and aux in to my laptop, but it doesn't recognize any device. I can use this cable to play music from my laptop tho.

I'm wondering what I'm missing, maybe some button on the mixer or something. Thanks for reading.
