Classic British Equalization
British mixing consoles have long been known for their analog warmth and overall quality recordings. Based on these vintage mixing consoles, Behringer have incorporated the same style on the channel EQ. This results in incredibly warm and detailed audio, delivering rich sonic qualities associated with the old British mixing consoles.
Built-In Digital Multi-FX Processor
The X2442USB features a built-in digital Multi-FX Processor designed to offer you an arsenal of premium-grade digital effect presets.

The built-in, bi-directional stereo USB Audio interface makes connecting your X2442USB to your computer easy and efficient, letting you connect directly to your computer via a single USB cable.
Premium Quality Compressor
Another unique feature of the X2442USB is the premium quality compressor.
