1. INTRODUCTION

Congratulations! In purchasing the BEHRINGER EURORACK

you have acquired a mixer whose small size belies its incredible

versatility and audio performance.

The BEHRINGER EURORACK mixing console offers you

premium-quality microphone preamplifiers with optional phantom

power supply, balanced line inputs and the ability to connect

external effects devices. Because of its extensive and carefully

thought-out routing possibilities, your EURORACK lends itself

equally to both live and studio use.

The microphone channels are fitted with BEHRINGER’s brand

new high-end IMP INVISIBLE MIC PREAMPs that boast the

following features:
s

130 dB dynamic range for an incredible amount of headroom,

s

a bandwidth ranging from below 10 Hz to over 200 kHz for

crystal-clear reproduction of even the finest nuances,

s

the extremely low-noise and distortionless circuitry gua-

rantees absolutely natural and transparent signal repro-

duction,

s

they are perfectly matched to every conceivable micro-

phone with up to 60 dB gain and +48 volt phantom power

supply and

s

They enable full utilisation of the greatly extended dynamic

range of your 24-bit/192 kHz HD recorder, thereby main-

taining optimal audio quality.

In addition, the BEHRINGER UB1204FX-PRO also offers an

effects processor equipped with 24-bit A/D and D/A converters.

The processor is fitted with the effect algorithms from our tried

and tested 19' multi-effects device, the VIRTUALIZER PRO

DSP2024P. 99 presets are available providing first-class room

simulations, delay and modulation effects, as well as

compression, tube distortion and many other effects, all with

stunning audio quality.

The mixing consoles of the PRO series feature a state of the

art, integrated switch-mode power supply. One of the great

advantages is that (compared to conventional circuits) a switch-

mode power supply adapts to mains voltages between 100 and

240 volts automatically. Furthermore, due to its much greater

efficiency, it consumes much less energy than a conventional

power supply unit.

CAUTION!

+

We should like to draw your attention to the fact that

extreme volumes may damage your hearing and/or

your headphones or loudspeakers. Turn the MAIN

MIX faders and phones control in the main section

fully down before you switch on the unit. Always be

careful to set the appropriate volume.

1.1 General mixing console functions

A mixing console fulfils three main functions:

s

Signal processing: Preamplification, level adjustment,

mixing of effects, frequency equalization.

s

Signal distribution: Summing of signals to the aux sends

for effects processing and monitor mix, distribution to one

or several recording tracks, power amp(s), control room

and 2-track outputs.

s

Mix: Setting the volume level, frequency distribution and

positioning of the individual signals in the stereo field, level

control of the total mix to match the recording devices/

crossover/power amplifier(s). All other mixer functions can

be included in this main function.

1. INTRODUCTION

Dear Customer,
I’m sure you’re one of

those people who have

devoted themselves body

and soul to your chosen

area and no doubt this has

transformed you into an

expert in your field!
Well, for over 30 years,

my passion has been

music and electronics.

This not only led me to

establish BEHRINGER,

but also enabled me to

convey and share my

enthusiasm with my

employees.
During all the years I’ve

been involved with studio

technology and end users,

Ub1204fx-pro

Ihave developed a feel for the things that really count, such as

sound quality, reliability and ease of use. What’s more, I have always

had the desire to push the boundaries of technical possibilities to the

extreme.

It was precisely this motivation that prompted me to start work

on a new series of mixing consoles. Since our EURORACKs had

already set new standards world-wide, I knew the development

objectives behind the products bearing my initials had to be

especially ambitious.

Thus, the concept and design of the new UB mixing consoles

bear my signature. The design work, the entire circuit diagram

and PCB development, and even the mechanical concepts are

my own work. I carefully selected each individual component—

with the aim of pushing the mixing consoles’ analog and digital

technologies to their limits.

My vision was to enable you, the user, to give free rein to your

true potential and creativity. The result is incredibly powerful mixing

consoles that offer intuitive operation. They cannot fail to impress

with their extremely flexible routing possibilities plus fantastic wealth

of functions. Innovative technologies, such as the completely new

IMP “Invisible” Mic Preamps, guarantee optimum sound quality.

And extraordinarily high-quality components provide unrivalled

reliability, even under extreme loads.

Your new UB mixing console is of high quality yet is simple to

use; you’ll soon appreciate that I, both personally and in my

capacity as musician and sound engineer, put you, the end user,

first and that these products were only possible because of the

passion and the attention to detail that went into them.

Thank you for the confidence you have placed in us by

purchasing the UB mixing console. I should also like to thank all

those who, with their personal commitment and passion, have

helped me realize this impressive series of mixing consoles.

Kindest regards,

Uli Behringer

+We should like to draw your attention to the fact that extreme volumes may damage your hearing and/or your headphones or loudspeakers. Turn the MAIN MIX faders and phones control in the main section fully down before you switch on the unit. Always be careful to set the appropriate volume.

1.1 General mixing console functions

A mixing console fulfils three main functions:

sSignal processing: Preamplification, level adjustment, mixing of effects, frequency equalization.

sSignal distribution: Summing of signals to the aux sends for effects processing and monitor mix, distribution to one or several recording tracks, power amp(s), control room and 2-track outputs.

EURORACK UB1204-PRO/UB1204FX-PRO

The interface of BEHRINGER mixing consoles is optimized for these tasks enabling you to easily keep track of the signal path.

1.2 The user’s manual

The user’s manual is designed to give you both an overview of the controls, as well as detailed information on how to use them. In order to help you understand the links between the controls, we have arranged them in groups according to their function. If you need to know more about specific issues, please visit our website at http://www.behringer.com, where you’ll find explanations of e.g. effects and dynamics applications.

+The block diagram supplied with the mixing console gives you an overview of the connections between the inputs and outputs, as well as the associated switches and controls.

For the moment, just try and trace the signal path from the microphone input to the aux send 1 connector. Don’t be put off by the huge range of possibilities; it’s easier than you think! If you look at the overview of the controls at the same time, you’ll be able to quickly familiarize yourself with your mixing console and you’ll soon be making the most of all its many possibilities.

1.3 Before you get started

1.3.1 Shipment

Your mixing console was carefully packed in the factory to guarantee safe transport. Nevertheless, we recommend that you carefully examine the packaging and its contents for any signs of physical damage, which may have occurred during transit.

+If the unit is damaged, please do NOT return it to us, but notify your dealer and the shipping company immediately, otherwise claims for damage or replacement may not be granted.

1.3.2 Initial operation

Be sure that there is enough space around the unit for cooling purposes and to avoid over-heating please do not place your mixing console on high-temperature devices such as radiators or power amps. The console is connected to the mains via the supplied cable. The console meets the required safety standards. Blown fuses must only be replaced by fuses of the same type and rating.

+Please note that all units must be properly grounded. For your own safety, you should never remove any ground connectors from electrical devices or power cables, or render them inoperative.

+Please ensure that only qualified people install and operate the mixing console. During installation and operation, the user must have sufficient electrical contact to earth, otherwise electrostatic discharges might affect the operation of the unit.

1.3.3 Warranty

Alternatively, you can use our online registration option available on the world wide web (www.behringer.com). You will find the serial number on the rear of your mixing console.

2. CONTROL ELEMENTS AND

CONNECTORS

This chapter describes the various control elements of your mixing console. All controls, switches and connectors will be discussed in detail.

2.1Mono channels

2.1.1Microphone and line inputs

Fig. 2.1: Connectors and controls of mic/line inputs

MIC

Each mono input channel offers a balanced microphone input via the XLR connector and also features a switchable +48 V phantom power supply for condenser microphones.

+Please mute your playback system before you activate the phantom power supply to prevent switch-on thumps being directed to your loudspeakers. Please also note the instructions in chapter 2.4.2 “Voltage supply, phantom power and fuse”.

LINE IN

Each mono input also features a balanced line input on a 1/4' connector. Unbalanced devices (mono jacks) can also be connected to these inputs.

+Please remember that you can only use either the microphone or the line input of a channel at any one time. You can never use both simultaneously!

LO CUT

The mono channels of the mixing consoles have a high-slope LO CUT filter for eliminating unwanted, low-frequency signal components (75 Hz, 18 dB/octave).

GAIN

Use the GAIN control to adjust the input gain. This control should always be turned fully counterclockwise whenever you connect or disconnect a signal source to one of the inputs.

2.1.2 Equalizer

All mono input channels include a 3-band equalizer. All bands provide boost or cut of up to 15 dB. In the central position, the equalizer is inactive.

EURORACK UB1204-PRO/UB1204FX-PRO

2.1.4 Routing switch, solo and channel fader

Fig. 2.2: The equalizer of the input channels

The upper (HI) and the lower band (LO) are shelving filters that increase or decrease all frequencies above or below their cut-off frequency. The cut-off frequencies of the upper and lower band are 12 kHz and 80 Hz respectively. The mid band is configured as a peak filter with a center frequency of 2.5 kHz.

2.1.3 Aux sends

Fig. 2.3: The AUX SEND controls in the channel strips

Aux sends take signals via a control from one or more channels and sum these signals to a so-called bus. This bus signal is sent to an aux send connector and then routed, for example, to an active monitor speaker or an external effects device. The return from an external effect can then be brought back into the console via the aux return connectors.

For situations which require effects processing, the aux sends are usually switched post-fader so that the effects volume in a channel corresponds to the position of the channel fader. If this were not the case, the effects signal of the channel would remain audible even when the fader is turned to zero. When setting up a monitor mix, the aux sends are generally switched to pre-fader; i.e. they operate independently of the position of the channel fader.

Both aux sends are mono, are sourced after the equalizer and offer up to +15 dB gain.

+ If you press the MUTE/ALT 3-4 switch, aux send 1 is muted, provided that it is switched postfader. However, this does not affect the aux send 2 of the UB1204FX-PRO.

AUX 1 (MON)

In the UB1204FX-PRO, aux send 1 can be switched pre-fader and is thus particularly suitable for setting up monitor mixes. In

the UB1204-PRO, the first aux send is labeled MON and is 2.2 Stereo channels permanently switched pre-fader.

PRE

When the PRE switch is pressed, aux send 1 is sourced prefader.

AUX 2 (FX)

The aux send labeled FX is for sending to effects devices and is thus set up to be post-fader.

In the UB1204FX-PRO, the FX send is routed directly to the built-in effects processor.

+If you wish to use the internal effects processor, the STEREO AUX RETURN 2 connectors should not be in use.

+UB1204FX-PRO: you can also connect an external effects processor to aux send 2, however the internal effects module will be muted.

EURORACK UB1204-PRO/UB1204FX-PRO

LEVEL

For level matching, the stereo inputs feature a LEVEL switch which selects between +4 dBu and -10 dBV. At -10 dBV (home-recording level), the input is more sensitive than at +4 dBu (studio level).

2.2.2 Equalizer stereo channels

The equalizer of the stereo channels is, of course, stereo. The filter characteristics and crossover frequencies are the same as those of the mono channels. A stereo equalizer is always preferable to two mono equalizers if frequency correction of a stereo signal is needed. There is often a discrepancy between the settings of the left and the right channels when using separate equalizers.

2.2.3 Aux sends stereo channels

In principle, the aux sends of the stereo channels function in just the same way as those of the mono channels. As aux send paths are always mono, the signal on a stereo channel is first summed to mono before it reaches the aux bus.

2.2.4 Routing switch, solo and channel fader

BAL

The function of the BAL(ANCE) control corresponds to the PAN control in the mono channels.

The balance control determines the relative proportion between the left and right input signals before both signals are routed to the main stereo mix bus.

The MUTE/ALT 3-4 switch, the MUTE-LED, the PEAK-LED, the SOLO switch and the channel fader function in the same way as the mono channels.

2.3 Connector panel and main section

Whereas it was useful to trace the signal flow from top to bottom in order to gain an understanding of the channel strips, we now look at the mixing console from left to right. The signals are, so to speak, collected from the same point on each of the channel strips and then routed to the main section all together.

2.3.1 Aux sends 1 and 2

Fig. 2.6: AUX SEND controls of the main section

A channel signal is routed to aux send bus 1 if the AUX 1 control is turned up on the corresponding channel.

AUX SEND 1 (MON)

The AUX SEND control MON acts as master control for aux send 1 and determines the level of the summed signal. In the UB1204FX-PRO, the MON control is called AUX SEND 1.

AUX SEND 2 (FX)

Similarly, the FX control (AUX SEND 2) determines the level for aux send 2.

SOLO

You can use the SOLO switch (UB1204FX-PRO only) to separately monitor the aux sends via the CONTROL ROOM/ PHONES outputs and check these with the level meters.

+If you want to monitor the signal of just one AUX bus, none of the other SOLO SWITCHES should be pressed and the MODE switch must be in the SOLO position (not pressed down).

2.3.2 Aux send connectors 1 and 2

Fig. 2.7: Aux send connectors

AUX SEND 1

If you use aux send 1 pre-fader, you would usually connect the AUX SEND 1 connector to monitors via a power amp (or an active monitor system). If you use aux send 1 post-fader, proceed as described under aux send 2.

AUX SEND 2

The AUX SEND 2 connector outputs the signal you picked up from the individual channels using the FX control. You can connect this to the input of an effects device in order to process the FX bus signal. Once an effects mix is created, the processed signal can then be routed from the effects device output back into the STEREO AUX RETURN connectors.

2.3.3 Stereo aux return connectors

Fig. 2.8: Stereo aux return connectors

STEREO AUX RETURN 1

The STEREO AUX RETURN 1 connectors generally serve as the return path for the effects mix generated using the postfader aux send. This is where you connect the output signal of the external effects device. If only the left connector is used, the AUX RETURN automatically operates in mono.

+You can also use these connectors as additional line inputs.

STEREO AUX RETURN 2

The STEREO AUX RETURN 2 connectors serve as the return path for the effects mix generated using the FX control. If these connectors already function as additional inputs, you can route the effects signal back into the console via a different channel, with the added benefit that the channel EQ can be used to adjust the frequency response of the effects return signal.

+In this instance, the FX control of the channel being used as an effects return should be turned fully counterclockwise, otherwise feedback problems could occur!

+If you wish to use the internal effects processor, no connectors should be plugged into STEREO AUX RETURN 2.

2.3.4 Stereo aux return

EURORACK UB1204-PRO/UB1204FX-PRO

+The peak meters of your EURORACK display the level virtually independent of frequency. A recording level of 0 dB is recommended for all signal types.

MODE (UB1204FX-PRO only)

The MODE switch determines whether the channels’ SOLO switch operates as PFL (Pre Fader Listen) or as solo (Solo In Place).

PFL

To activate the PFL function, depress the MODE switch. The PFL function should, as a rule, be used for gain setting purposes. The signal is sourced pre-fader and assigned to the mono PFL bus. In the “PFL” setting, only the left side of the peak meter operates. Drive the individual channels to the 0 dB mark of the VU meter.

Solo

When the MODE switch is not depressed, the stereo solo bus is active. Solo is short for “Solo In Place”. This is the customary method for listening to an individual signal or to a group of signals. As soon as a solo switch is pressed, all channels in the control room (and headphones) that have not been selected are muted thereby retaining stereo panning. The solo bus can carry the output signals of the channel pan controls, the aux sends and the stereo line inputs. The solo bus is, as a rule, switched postfader.

+The PAN control in the channel strip offers a constant power characteristic. This means that the signal is always at a constant level, irrespective of its position in the stereo panorama. If the PAN control is moved fully left or right from center, the

4. INSTALLATION

4.1 Rack mounting

The packaging of your mixing console contains two 19' rack mount wings which can be installed on the side panels of the console.

Before you can attach the rack mount wings to the mixing

console, you need to remove the screws holding the left and

right side panels. Use these screws to fasten the two wings

onto the console, being careful to note that each wing fits a

specific side. With the rack mount wings installed, you can mount

the mixing console in a commercially available 19' rack. Be sure

to allow for proper air flow around the unit, and do not place the

Fig. 4.2: XLR connections

mixing console close to radiators or power amps, so as to avoid

overheating.

+ Only use the screws holding the mixing console side panels to fasten the 19' rack mounts.

4.2 Cable connections

You will need a large number of cables for the various connections to and from the console. The illustrations below show the wiring of these cables. Be sure to use only high-grade cables.

Fig. 4.3: 1/4' TS connector

Fig. 4.1: 1/4' TS connector for foot switch

4.2.1 Audio connections

Please use commercial RCA cables to wire the 2-track inputs and outputs.

You can, of course, also connect unbalanced devices to the balanced input/outputs. Use either mono plugs, or ensure that ring and sleeve are bridged inside the stereo plug (or pins 1 & 3 in the case of XLR connectors).

+ Caution! You must never use unbalanced XLR connectors (pin 1 and 3 connected) on the MIC inputs if you intend to use the phantom power supply.
