DIGITAL iPAD/TABLET MIXER X18/XR18 Controls

(1)  INPUTS accept balanced and 

unbalanced XLR and ¼  " plugs. 
Inputs 1 and 2 have high-
impedance preamps for direct 
connection of guitars and basses.

(2)  OUT L & R jacks send the main mix 

signal to PA or monitor speakers via 
XLR cables.

(3)  RCA IN jacks (X18 only) accept 

unbalanced RCA cables for 
connecting MP3 players, external 
mixers, iPad, etc. These inputs have 
limited processing compared to the 
other input channels.

(4)  RCA OUT jacks (X18 only) send 

either the main mix signal or 
headphone signal via unbalanced 
RCA cables to a pair of active 
studio monitors.

(5)  CONTROL ROOM button (X18 only) 

determines whether the main mix 
or headphone/solo signal is routed 
to the RCA OUT jacks.

(6)  HEADPHONE jack accepts a 

¼  " TRS plug for connecting a pair 
of headphones.

(7)  PHONES LEVEL knob determines the 

output of the headphones jack.

and off . The LED on the main input 
panel will light when the unit is 
powered on.

(9)  USB port (type B) accepts a USB 

cable for connection to a computer 
for multi-channel audio and MIDI 
recording. Up to 18 audio channels 
can be simultaneously recorded, 
and 18 channels are available for 
playback. The mixer application 
allows assignment of channels 
for recording and playback. 
16 channels of MIDI I/O can also 
be transmitted on the same USB 
connection. Check the product page 
on behringer.com to download the 
required (Windows*) driver and the 
full manual for a comprehensive 
explanation of the interface.

ETHERNET port allows the mixer to 
be controlled via LAN or connected 
Wifi  router.

(11)

default network parameters when 
held for 2 seconds. When held for 
10 seconds, all console functions 
are reset to factory default status.

Ethernet, Wifi  client, or Access

of BEHRINGER P16-M personal 
monitoring mixers or P16-D 
distribution hubs.

mixes to active stage monitors or 
headphone mixers. The XR18 uses 
XLR connectors, while the X18 uses 
balanced ¼" jacks.

(16) 

Inputs 17 and 18 (XR18 only) 
accept balanced ¼  " cables for 
connecting line-level sources.
