Crowd noise in venue where alcohol is served can exceed 90dBA.

But maybe not on planet Mars where you live.

Well, that's the nice thing about better consoles, you don't have to be so
careful about gain staging. On an old Neve, you just pot everything more
or less up in the right ballpark and it sounds fine. It's not like working
on a Mackie where you have to juggle the trims and the mains because the
trims change the tonality and you have to keep a constant eye on the buss
levels (and mute unused channels). On a good console you can spend your
time worrying about how the music sounds and less time babying the gain
structure on each strip.

Not all live audio takes place in bars with drunk audiences. And if it
does, then listener to loudspeaker distance is tinnitussaly short
causing electronics noise to be very audible even for those of modest
sobriety. But perhaps not after the guitar solo ...

Nice to hear from you anyway, have a nice day Phil!

Thanks for the laugh Scott, comparing a Behringer to a Neve! I would be
very happy if 'babying the gain" was all I needed to do for the same
level of performance! :-)
But you are right about the old Mackies, a lot more critical than
Behringer IME, and dearer to boot.

Trevor.

I did, but people have been posting about their "problems" with
Behringer gear since the 1990s, and will continue to do so. It doesn't
matter that the mixer in the video is a completely different animal than
the one in this week's post. No matter - Behringer has always sold their
gear as "professional" and some professionals even use a piece here and
there. And the more they sell, the more failures there will be for
people to post about, usually with the tone of "I knew I shouldn't have
bought this, so you'd better not buy one."

I'm sure that somewhere in the world there's someone else who has had
two channels fail on an X-18 mixer. If they're smart, they'll get it
fixed and move on. Behringer has pretty good warranty coverage as long
as you can get the box to them.
