With the STUDIO XL, Behringer continues its push into the pro audio section of the market. This controller is designed for use with three sets of monitors, each with individual adjustment knobs so you can use the large knob in the middle to balance the levels of each equally.

Further STUDIO L upgrades include an AUX mix input, which, in combination with the two output tracks, allows in-band or outboard effects monitoring as well as an additional pair of inputs and outputs TRS.

Features that have been carried over from the L are a VCA volume controller which is the professional way to change levels, a built-in talkback microphone, mono and dim controls to quickly check your mix, volume meters and a large center button for precise volume adjustment. .

Midas being part of the Music Tribe family of brands, they have used their signature high quality preamps in this unit to ensure ultra low noise professional sound from the input to the output stages.

Combine that with the 192kHz, 24-bit audio processing capabilities and it’s an affordable studio centerpiece.
