    I think Behringer is OK. It's just that they make a lot of lemons (DOA).
    Just make sure you buy new I say.

        I've bought (and sold) several Behringer products over the years. Some were great, some were disappointing.

        First item was an MX-1604 mixer. Had it for several years and it sounded very good and performed flawlessly until I sold it.

        Bought an RX-1602 rackmount line mixer and it was pretty crappy sounding in the lower frequency range. Also one of the main channels was a couple decibels quieter than the other. I thought I just got a bad unit so I exchanged it for a new one. Same problem so I returned it for a refund and bought an ASHLY LX-308B. Now that's a kick-ass line mixer!

        DSP2024P Effects processor. Very cool multi-effects for the money. Also performed perfectly for the few years I owned it. Kind of regret selling that one.

        What I still own:

        B-2 Pro mic. Not good, but not the worst mic in the world. I've kept it just in case I need an extra mic.

        BCN44 Nanocontrol. Nice little MIDI controller. I use this to remotely control some basic functions on the Eclipse.

        ADA-8000 8 channel ADAT expander. This is probably one of their finest products. Excellent sounding A/D-D/A conversion for peanuts. I use this with an RME Fireface 400 and slave the Behringer to the RME's master clock with a BNC cable.

          Works fine as a little submixer for running a couple of synths to a monitor/FOH in a compact setup situation.

          -------------



          Bought it as cheap/compact way to add true stereo reverb/delay to my Nord Electro. I now use a RE-20 Space Echo, but this did the job for a while. Very plasticky build tho and so light the weight of the cables would pull it off the keyboard haha. You can hear it on my NE2 Rhodes here -

          --------------



          Used it for a while on my bass and keys. Was never really 100% satisfied with the result. Should pop this on eBay actually, don't really use it anymore.

          -------------

          Also owned a MX1604 mixer for years. One of the channels ended up dying but it performed really well for many many years. Also had one of their DI boxes which worked fine for a couple of years, then died.

                Wow, that's great! My band needs one of these! I use the Xenyx 1002B for the same purpose. Pretty clunky, but it works and sounds better than I would expect for $100. I've been gigging with it for years and no complaints!

                    If you've got one of those old synths that lacks buttons and knobs for live tweaking, it really is amazing. It learns the parameters for just about any parameter on anything midi. I bought it for my DW-8000, DSS-1, and DVP-1. I now have instant control over all those parameters that a vintage analog piece has. And I think I paid $150 for it new. I haven't tried to use it with my newer gear but I plan on using it with the KRONOS.

                      Off topic I know but ... what are your thoughts of DVP-1? I've been bidding on those on ebay for years now.. never win.

                        It's a real vocoder and not an effect like on the Triton, M3, RADIAS, or KRONOS. No Korg synth on the market can do what this thing can. I forget what I paid for mine but I think it was $475 about 10 years ago. The big problem is I rarely ever, ever use it. For the vast majority of people, the Vocoder effect is what most people want/need/use and everything since the Triton does a decent job at that. I've got mine listed on CL right now at $300 and I've had one person inquire about it and he offered me $50 for it. ?!?!?!?!

                        Watch this cheesy video of the VC-10. The DVP-1 does everything that does plus more.



                        The more I think about it, I may need to keep this thing!

                              The Vocoder came out in 1979. Youtube clips were pretty old school then!
