Now the Behringer pro mixer DX626 review will talk about these features and benefits in more detail to better the idea of this pro mixer.
Three Stereo Inputs
The Behringer pro mixer DX626 has three dual input stereo channels with gain and 3 band kill EQ. Kill EQs can be lowered to a much greater extent (Up to – 32 dB in this mixer) than they can be raised upward (+12 dB for this mixer). These Kill EQs are very useful in fading a frequency range out of a music track to mix two songs together or to do other unique customizations to a single track.
The Behringer pro mixer DX626 review thinks this is a very convenient way to get fast hold of the music tracks. This will also help in blending in the songs when the crowd is going wild and the DJ needs to change the upcoming track in the last moment by judging the crowd’s vibe and mood. A good DJ should always know how to read the crowd’s mind and these three stereo inputs can help in achieving that.
The first of these three channels is also switchable to studio grade Ultra Low Noise (ULN) mic input, to be used with the manual talk over function.
The Behringer pro mixer DX626 review would like to add that this pro mixer’s BPM counter is an extremely useful feature as it does multiple things at once. It enables the user to let have a smooth transition from one musical track to the next one which makes the overall quality of the musical session a better result. The BPM counter can also calculate the various tempi of the tracks in beats per minute (BPM). The left side of the display of the Behringer pro mixer DX626 shows the tempo on the channel number 2 and the right side of the display shows the tempo on the channel number 3. However, the BPM counter sometimes gets jammed and doesn’t show the proper BPM. This can happen after using this pro mixer for a while. This is a negative side of the pro mixer.
The monitor of the pro mixer functions with master or PFL mix options. The PFL signal is the headphones’ signal. It lets the user preview the music without having an effect on the master signal. The headphone channel signal is taken Pre-fader. With the three buttons lined up as CH -1, CH -2 and CH -3, the user can easily determine the signal source of the headphones’ signal. You can either choose the listen to all three of these channels simultaneously or preview the channels individually. The Behringer pro mixer DX626 review thinks this is a great feature to keep track of the mixes in an easy way.
Gooseneck Lamp Socket
The lamp socket is basically there to make your life easier. You can connect a commercially bought 12 volt BNC lamp to get a better view of the board of your pro mixer even in the darkest situations. The Behringer pro mixer DX626 review thinks that this simple yet effective feature is a nice addition on the pro mixer as it makes the overall performance smoother with lesser hassle. The gooseneck lamp socket will help in making the user’s life easier even though it is such a small and simple feature.
