1961 - 2016

Hear from professionals who used Behringer over the years

1961

How Did it All Start?

I’d like to take this opportunity to share a little history with you. I was born 1961 in Baden, a tiny little town in Switzerland close to Zurich. I grew up in a musical family where my mother taught me to play the piano at the age of four. 1961

1977

UB-1 Synthesizer

Uli Behringer, the company’s founder, was committed to music and technology from a very early age, and had constructed a synthesizer (the UB-1) by the age of 16. 1977

1982

Foundation and Early Development

Obviously both music and electronics inspired me to later study classical piano as well as sound engineering. In 1982 I moved to Dusseldorf, Germany to take up piano studies at the Robert Schumann Conservatory as well as Sound Engineering at the Fachhochschule. 1982Released 1982
DIGITAL-REVERB

Uli’s first digital reverb survives to this day.

1988

STUDIO EXCITER Type F

Now it sounds good...
Psychoacoustics was a hot topic in the ’80s world of professional audio. The few manufacturers who providing solutions for processing or enhancing compromised audio signals were charging a premium to elite engineers and recording studios. A great deal of effort went into hiding the “mysterious circuitry” employed in this technology just to keep it a secret. Curious and scientifically biased as he is, Uli Behringer accepted the challenge of lifting this curtain and providing equivalent solutions to a much broader audience. The STUDIO EXCITER Type F was both provoking and polarizing, but it was a defining statement: At last, really good audio processing was truly affordable for everyone!1988

1989

The Behringer Story

From a “kitchen-table startup” to one of the largest and most successful pro-audio companies in the World. 1989Otto Pahnke called in one of his graphic designers and said "draw this young man a stylized ear so he can use it for his company logo". I was now left with my name Behringer, a drawing for a technical ear and I tried to figure out how to combine them. The only way it would work was to draw a triangle around those elements and that was the birth of the logo which until now is our Company trademark.It became my personal mission and later the Company’s philosophy to provide professional products at prices every musician could afford. This formed the Behringer mantra “Double the Features at Half the Price” which literally created a new “Prosumer” or home-recording market that had not existed before.

1990

Otto Pahnke - The Mentor Who Changed My Life

Shortly after I arrived in Dusseldorf I met and dated a beautiful girl who was also a great singer (guess that did the job) and whose father was the general manager of one of the most famous chocolate manufacturers in Germany called Storck. 1990

1991

COMBINATOR MDX8000

Analog summing compressor, Made in Germany, hard to find on the 2nd hand market, 2nd hand unit prices are higher than for the new product version.

Soon after Behringer’s first endeavor as an audio manufacturer, the MDX8000 COMBINATOR made another splash on the very high-end side of (broadcast) audio processing. Proving once again, that even very sophisticated processing and original feature sets can be provided at much lower price points. The MDX8000 was produced entirely at our manufacturing facility in Willich, Germany.1991

1992

COMPOSER MDX2000

The best selling compressor ever, from that time all 19" units had the new enclosure design and were Made in China, more COMPOSER models will follow.

Being a visionary and entrepreneur, Uli Behringer investigated and discovered many of the large-scale electronics manufacturers had invested in automation,which yielded lower operational costs and provided for mass production. The MDX2000 COMPOSER, another milestone in Behringer’s goal to bridge the gap between pro audio and consumer electronics, was the first product designed for large scale production in China. With several successor models to follow, the COMPOSER quickly became the best selling compressor of all time.1992

1996

EURODESK MX8000

Analog Flagship Studio Console (Inline Concept)
The MX8000 EURODESK subsequently caused the biggest stir among bands, project studios and rental companies. The audio industry was just becoming aware that 24 inline channels of good-quality, 8-bus mixing could be had for just under USD 5,000.00, when Behringer announced the EURODESK at only half that price. As much polarizing as it was successful, the EURODESK instantly made people aware of the Behringer mission.1996CYBERMIX CM8000
Fader and Mute Automation

At the time, typical project and commercial multitrack studios were based around analog or digital tape machines that coexisted and synced with MIDI equipment and sequencers. Mix automation systems allowed users to integrate control over the analog mixing path with separately-produced MIDI tracks. The Behringer CYBERMIX was patched to the MX8000 insert points and provided automated synchronization to SMPTE LTC or MTC, for muting and fading channel volumes.1996EURORACK MX2802/MX2642
First generation of our highly successful analog mixer lines

While the MX8000 had instantly grabbed the attention of the semi-pro audio world, it was the MX2642 EURORACK Series Compact Mixers that established the new prosumer market next to the pro audio market – a transition pioneered by Behringer.1996ULTRACURVE DSP8000
A small step for Behringer, a major leap for the Pro Audio World - One of the fist digital Equalizer incl. feedback killer.

At the same time, Behringer was also eagerly investing in proprietary design and IP (Intellectual Property). The ULTRACURVE DSP8000 provided an innovative combination of high-quality digital signal processing, which included stereo 31-band EQ with a True-EQ feature, RTA (Real Time Analyzer), line delay and peak limiting. The ULTRACURVE included a measurement mic input and functions for automatic room-compensating EQ, as well as automatic feedback suppression.1996SUPER-X CX2300
Analog crossover, but now as an affordable unit, Bestseller

Before active or powered PA systems became all the rage, audio engineers had to rely on their loudspeakers’ internal crossovers, or convert their passive speakers using expensive electronic crossovers. Recognizing the need for a practical alternative to the high-end offerings of the day, Behringer went to work on the Company’s first 2-way stereo/3-way mono electronic crossover – the SUPER-X CX2300. This high-precision crossover became one of Behringer’s best-selling studio and live sound products of all time before being replaced by the landmark SUPER-X PRO CX2310.1996ULTRAVOICE XM2000S/ECM8000
The first microphones from Behringer

Yet another major milestone was passed when BEHRINGER brought their first ULTRAVOICE microphones to market. The XM2000S Dynamic Cardioid was quickly adopted as the vocal/instrument go-to mic by bands, DJs and houses of worship. Designed specifically for RTA measurement and recording applications, the ECM8000 Measurement Condenser Microphone is recognized by audio engineers the world over for its exceptionally flat frequency response and true omnidirectional pickup pattern. The updated version of the XM2000S, the XM1800S, and the ECM8000 remain on the BEHRINGER best-seller list to this day.1996Behringer Interactive World 19961996

1997

An Amazing Journey That Has Kept Me in Asia for 20 Years

Once I had set my mission to provide professional products at affordable prices, I realized that Europe was not the right place for manufacturing. 1997SHARK DSP110
Feedback Destroyer and mostly underestimated unit

Behringer releases the SHARK and takes a bite out of feedback! The handy SHARK DSP100 Multi-Function Signal Processor can be used to instantly equalize a complete PA system and automatically eliminates feedback. Behringer’s search algorithm attenuates feedback-prone frequencies within a fraction of a second, via narrow-band, single-shot filters. Only the frequencies related to the feedback are attenuated, leaving the music powerful and alive.1997DSP1000-Series
19" Digital Series

Based on proprietary ULTRACURVE technology, the highly-affordable DSP1000 family of single-space, rack-mountable processors was born – including the well-received VIRTUALIZER and MODULIZER multi-effects devices, the FEEDBACK DESTROYER’s automatic parametric EQ – and the ULTRAMIZER’s digital multi-band compression.1997Mixers and New Products 19971997Standard Audio 19971997New Products Spring 19971997

PRO-MIXER DX1000

The 19" - standard. 2nd Generation still selling

Since its introduction in 1999, the DX1000 has become a favorite among thousands of working DJ’s, remix artists and club installers around the globe. As the first DJ mixer produced by Behringer, it sports extreme flexibility, an impressive feature set and uncompromising audio and build quality. Having proven itself time and time again and continuously gained popularity, it merits a place of honor in our line next to our new VMX series mixers.1998EURODESK MX9000A/3282A/2442A
Successor of the MX8000, now with Meterbridge, 2 smaller Live consoles

Behringer introduced the MX9000A Professional 48/24-Channel Inline Mixing Console with Integrated Meterbridge, bringing studio-grade, large scale mixing to the realm of affordability. The large channel-count, 8 output buses and crystal-clear performance makes the MX9000A a favorite of rehearsal and recording studios virtually overnight.1998EURORACK MX602A/802A/1602A

Behringer goes Vintage...

Behringer's T-Series introduced the patented Tube Warmth circuitry and combined it with well-established analog processors, such as the COMPOSER, ULTRAGAIN and INTELLIGATE, creating a new product family for advanced users. At the time, the T-Series could even be found in outboard racks of international touring acts, such as Deep Purple and Smashing Pumpkins, as well as some of the world’s most-prestigious recording studios.1998BLUE DEVIL GX112 19981998The Art of Mixing 19981998The Sign of Sound 19981998

1999

ULTRA-GRAPH PRO GEQ3102

The world's best selling meisterkaufte 1/3-Band equalizer

The GEQ3102 puts a powerful graphic equalization tool in your hands, with 2 x 31 standard 1 /3 -octave center frequencies plus sweepable high- and low-pass filters for “pre-graphic” trimming. The dual 12-segment LED chains can display either input or output level, and each EQ section can be bypassed for quick comparisons.1999EUROLIVE B300
The very first of all powered PA speakers

Once again Behringer ventured into a completely new arena of expertise – live sound reinforcement. Acoustic and system engineers were hired to designing cabinets, optimized crossover tunings and waveguides, as well as sourcing suitable drivers. The first product released was the EUROLIVE B300 – a 300-Watt, 2-way 15" active loudspeaker in a sturdy, but lightweight ABS enclosure.1999TRUTH B2031A/B2030A/B2092A
The first studio monitors incl. subs, still in our product line

Active bi-amped reference studio monitors were developed in parallel with the live sound systems – the TRUTH Series. Designed to deliver uncolored, reliable studio sound, and benchmarked against the number one near-field monitors of the time, to this day the TRUTH Series remains one of our crowning achievements. As they say, “nomen est omen” – the name says it all!1999Behringer Spring 19991999

2000

EUROLIVE B1020/1220/1520/1800/F1220/1520

2002

Behringer City Was Born

In 2002, Behringer completed its own factory, Behringer City, in Zhongshan of China’s Guangdong province after it consolidated more than ten separate production locations into one vertically integrated plant. 2002DIGITAL MIXER DDX3216
First digital console

After achieving remarkable success with his analog compact and medium-format mixer series (with hundreds of thousands units sold), Uli Behringer began pondering the future of live and studio mixing – and he quickly chose to make a major investment in developing his first digital mixing console. The DDX3216 was designed with the collaboration of an external partner, and provided an extremely compelling feature set that included floating-point processing. The DDX3216 was a tremendous success, with many of them are still in use today.2002EUROPOWER PMH2000
First powered mixer

We proudly introduce a Behringer first: a compact 500-Watt power mixer with everything you need to get your sound to your audience—just plug in your instruments and microphones, add a pair of speakers and you’re ready to go. The PMH2000 gives you six mono channels with ULN mic/line preamps with -25 dB pads and peak LEDs, switchable phantom power, our renowned super-musical 3-band EQ, an effects and monitor send. In addition, you get four stereo channels: three with the same ULN mic/line preamp, EQ and sends but with left and right ¼" connectors, and one especially configured for tape, CD or MD players with stereo RCA inputs and recording outputs.2002ULTRA-CURVE PRO DEQ2496
Masterpiece; ⅓ band and parametric EQ with RTA and many extras

Six years after launching the ULTRACURVE DSP8000 digital processor, it was time to take the product to the next technology level. A new team was brought onboard, swapping the fixed-point DSP to floating-point. All aspects of the product were re-coded from ground up, a new GUI and industrial design was developed – and the DEQ2496 was born. The ULTRACURVE PRO DEQ2496 is just as relevant today, and is still one of our best selling digital processors.2002ULTRA-DRIVE PRO DCX2496
Perhaps the most popular Loudspeaker Management System ever...

Another 1U floating-point DSP powerhouse, the ULTRADRIVE DCX2496 set new standards for affordable sound-reinforcement loudspeaker management. Just like the DEQ2496, the DCX2496 is still one of our best sellers, and clearly documents the legacy of the original IP and technology developed at Behringer.2002V-AMP 2
Behringer first top-model (Modeling)

Even though we had only stepped into the guitar amplification market in 2000, we decided to bring affordable DSP (Digital Sound Processing) to guitarists and bass players all over the world in 2002. The original V-AMP Virtual Amplification Multi-FX modeler, and the resulting family of digital FX processors, have sold close to 250,000 units – and have earned a remarkable share of the market, as well as a place of honor in the realm of digital modeling.2002SEX 20022002Behringer Technology 20022002

PRO-MIXER DJX700

Best selling DJ Mixer, still selling in 3rd generation

The PRO MIXER DJX700 is a professional 5-channel DJ mixer with such great features to instantly ingrain itself on the short list of must-have industry standards.

Start with our high-grade 45-mm ULTRAGLIDE faders. The faders are, after all, the heart and soul of each mixer. With their 500,000 cycles life expectancy, they outperform standard faders more than twenty-fold.

Behringer goes E-Piano...

When we started the EUROGRAND project, we invited concert pianists, church musicians and piano teachers to give us input on their digital dream piano. They came up with a wish list that appeared just about impossible to achieve:

They wanted a digital piano to rival the sound of the finest acoustic piano. It should incorporate an 88-key, weighted hammer-action keyboard that provides the touch and feel of a concert grand.

Far from done with their requests, they also asked for 14 authentic instrument sounds, 40 Watts of stereo power and a 2-track sequencer for rehearsals. All built into an elegant wood grain cabinet with black finish. Impossible?

We did it. After 2 years of hard work, those musicians have approved our masterpiece. While there are no strings attached, the EUROGRAND sounds and feels like real. And music to your ears: It has a price that everyone can afford.

The New Logo Was Born

With the dramatic change in direction, I felt it was important to make a statement by changing the most sacred part of a company, which is the logo. What I had learned from the books I read was the importance of focus and simplification. So I set out together with our marketing team, to fundamentally change the logo. Over the course of several months we came up with some great ideas, but nothing felt quite right. Suddenly my intuition told me to go back to my roots and ask Otto Pahnke’s daughter for help, who by that time had become a successful marketing expert in her own right. Together we developed the new logo which is substantially calmer, warmer while still retaining the essence of the original logo. I would like to take the opportunity to thank Anna for helping us create this wonderful new logo.20102010

4/16/2013 FRANKFURT, Germany — Musikmesse International Press Awards (MIPA) mipa-awardshonored Behringer’s X32 Digital Mixing Console with the highly coveted award for Best Mixing Desk (Live) at the annual Prolight + Sound event.

Behringer’s X32 Awarded Reader’s Choice by Pro Sound Web
The X32 won the Pro Sound Web and Live Sound International "Readers' Choice Awards" at NAMM 2013

Anaheim, CA - It's only Day 1 of NAMM 2013 and Behringer's X32 Digital Mixer is already making news.

Pro Sound Web announced that the X32 has been selected by the public for a highly-coveted Reader’s Choice Award! And, while many would have expected the X32 to win handily in the Small Format Console category, the honor came in the Large Form category - where the X32 was competing with consoles selling for up to 20 times the price, such as the Digico SD5 and Avid SC48 etc.! In fact, every other console in the Large Format category costs at least 3 times the price of the X32.

So, how did the X32 garner such praise in a category previously dominated by the big, expensive competition? Perhaps it was the fact that the X32 delivers an earth-shattering feature set that includes motorized faders, recallable digitally programmable Midas-designed mic pres, AES50 96-Channel digital audio networking and 16 FX slots crammed with over 40 studio-grade effects, dynamics and EQ. Sure, there are a few digital consoles that offer similar features, but as Pro Sound Web’s readers know, they all sell for much more than the X32.

Speaking on behalf of the Behringer brand, Music Tribe parent CEO Uli Behringer had this to say, “We are deeply honored to receive this recognition from Pro Sound Web and their readers. The X32 was developed as the ultimate expression of our commitment to design, engineer and build not only the best products possible, but also to make them affordable. "The X32 has broken all records, selling more than 20,000 units in the first 6 months.
