It is ideally suited for both live and studio applications, thanks to its 16 award-winning MIDAS-designed mic preamps, convenient integrated Wifi module for wireless control – and a lightning-fast, bidirectional USB Audio Interface.

Front of House is wherever you -- and your tablet are!
The freedom to move around and manipulate all parameters of your mix with the free iOS, Android and PC apps lets you dial in the perfect sound from anywhere in the venue – or the tracking room! Advanced engineering and meticulous design deliver stellar sonic performance at an extremely affordable price – changing the game once again.

Built-In Tri-Mode Wifi Router
Designed for the ultimate in mobility, the XR18 comes with an integrated Wifi module for direct control of your mixer’s functions – without the need to setup and configure an external router. The XR18 gives you the freedom to focus on your mix, while allowing you to move about the venue to experience what every part of the audience is hearing. Plus you can adjust live monitor wedges from the artist’s perspective – or better yet, let them mix their own IEMs and floor monitors via their own tablets.

Recording Simplified
The incredibly fast and comprehensive 18 x 18 channel, bi-directional USB interface makes the XR18 an amazingly powerful digital mixing solution for recording directly to your iPad or PC. Dial in the perfect monitoring mix with effects and zero-latency, while sending up to 16 microphone signals – and the keyboard player’s MIDI notes to your DAW for recording.

Revolutionary Auto-Mixing
When your application calls for a multiple-microphone setup, such as an onstage panel discussion, press conference or courtroom proceeding, etc., it can become a challenge to maintain so many open mics – and preserve maximum gain and priority for the moderator. Revolutionary X AIR Gain Sharing technology can easily manage fully automated mixes with up to 16 live microphones. Based on the legendary Dan Dugan automix system, the XR18’s gain sharing paradigm automatically controls the levels of all selected microphones in real time, without any gating artifacts or noise modulation.

This function dramatically reduces the typical feedback, studio noise and comb filtering challenges that can occur when two, or more mics are in close proximity of each another. X AIR Gain Sharing technology provides a consistent system gain structure, even when multiple speakers are talking at the same time.

4 Onboard X32 Effects Engines
Equipped with the very same FX engines as the now legendary X32 Digital Mixing Console, the onboard virtual FX Rack provides access to four true-stereo (8 mono), multi-effects processors including delay, chorus, dynamics – plus the XR18 can run production-quality, true-stereo reverbs concurrently with 31-band EQ on the main and aux buses, all without the need for any additional hardware.

100-Band RTA for all Channel/Bus EQ’s
The XR18 includes a high-resolution 100-band Real Time Analyzer (RTA), with full Bar and Spectrograph views. This high-resolution RTA displays the audio energy distribution in 100 frequency bands over time – capturing a sonogram window of a full 10 seconds.

Dedicated Apps and Software – All Platforms Covered
And since Behringer realized that “one size doesn’t always fit all”, they went the extra mile and provided apps for all the most popular devices and operating systems. So they engaged dedicated (and highly caffeinated!) development teams for our iOS, Android*, PC/Mac and Linux based applications for the XR18 mixer. When you download an XR18 app for your OS, you can rest assured that you will get the fully optimized experience we intended.

I would definitely recommend this digital mixer for any one.


I haven't had the full pleasure of using this digital mixer ,but I know this is one that I will cherish unlike other mixers I have this would be a keeper;it has a lot of effects and presets to process on it which for a DJ make my my sound hotter than ever.



Overall versatile.


We use this mixer for live streaming church services. Interface is user friendly. Connection issues with built in WiFi. Best if used as USB or Ethernet through a separate router.



Great mixer for a great price.


I needed a mixer/audio interface to replace the one in my studio. This is working out incredibly well. The software is incredibly intuitive, and it has endless routing options. It was incredibly easy to set it up for 5.1 surround mixing, too. I highly recommend that you use a large tablet for the controls. I plan to start using a Raspberry Pi and 17" touchscreen monitor with mine.





100% great product,



Shut up and Buy this !


Love this little guy! Perfect for recording and live mixing. I already have a full X32 system w/2 stage boxes but this is such a valuable tool that I HAD TO BUY one!



Great portability for my 6 piece band being fully mic'd


So far (a couple of weeks and gigs in), I'm very happy with this mixer. Lots of positives and only one negative - no back mounted ports for anything other than power. So I had to get creative when mounting my wireless ears and microphone in the same rack case. The midas preamps sound great, and if you've ever pretended to be a sound engineer (or actually are one), it's pretty intuitive to control with the X Air apps. And for the bits that aren't intuitive, there are plenty of online tutorials from Behringer on youtube. For the money, it's hard to beat as long as you don't mind using a computer/tablet/phone as your only way to control it.



I would buy this product again for sure!


I love the Behringer X AIR 18. I'm about to move things with a touch of the finger. Wireless connection is strong. Sound quality is amazing. App is very easy to use. Product is sturdy.



Great Value


Work great and for a reasonable cost
