Behringer FLOW 8 Bluetooth Controlled Digital Mixer

Product Information:

Digital Mixing with Ease

Digital mixers offer studio quality processing, highest fidelity, total recall of all settings and even remote operation. Those are hugely attractive features, but they all come at a cost - with bigger physical size, more complex operation requiring at least some degree of audio technical education.
The millions of analog small format mixers that Behringer has built over the years clearly tell us that there are many users who need a mixer that is compact, affordable, dependable and easy to operate.

Typical applications very often just need to balance the level of a handful of sources. So, why making things more complicated than they need to be? It is time for something genuinely new providing modern features and workflows to everyone in a simple and light form – it is time for FLOW 8 digital mixing.

EZ-Gain Assisted Gain Staging

Have you ever heard someone say, “you need to pay attention to your gain staging”? Do you know what the “gain structure” is about? When you are interested in clean and healthy signals, with low noise and low harmonic distortion, then adjusting the right amount of preamp gain is paramount. It is defining the amount of amplification a signal gets when entering the mixer. Since source signals can be anything from a strong hit on the snare drum, to the subtle hum of bees, there is not one gain fitting all possible purposes.

Gain staging is always a compromise and finding the right one requires either experience and technical knowledge, or the new FLOW 8 EZ-GAIN feature. The function can monitor signals on one or all channels at the same time, until you think the loudest sounds have been put to it. EZ GAIN will then automatically adjust the channel gain to the optimum headroom.

Oh, by the way, EZ GAIN will automatically engage the 48 V phantom power on mic inputs 1/2 when no signal is coming in, just in case you forgot to do that. It will switch it off again if no signal is coming in still.
