    Here's What Behringer Say About the FLOW

    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.

    Full App Remote Control

    Let’s face it, small mixers are more often placed where cables end, rather than in a position where it would be most useful for controlling the mix. You may have to stretch out for controlling levels or walk away from the mixer to judge if your adjustment has the desired effect. No longer!
    FLOW 8 mixers offer full remote control from basically any Android or iOS device, giving you the freedom to go exactly where the sound is ideal for making any sort of adjustment. Tweak the 9-band EQ for the main PA speakers, set the compressor on the bass guitar or adjust the mix for the talents on stage…

    Assisted Setup for Beginners

    You are new to the world of audio and not sure which signal to put on different inputs? You don’t know how to use the EQ or compressor for dedicated signals? No problem, the FLOW 8 app provides you with a unique setup wizard that takes you step by step to make your music shine. After selecting the type of input the assistant will offer you presets and tell you where to plug the cables in. Thanks to this innovative feature you can add your instruments and microphones even though you are no expert yet.

    Total Recall of All Settings

    You are recording a podcast one day and some vocals the other? You are mixing multiple artists on the same gig? Or generally speaking - FLOW 8 is your permanent companion for various audio applications and you want perfectly tweaked preset available on your fingertips within seconds. Then the integrated snapshot library and the possibility to store unlimited snapshots per FLOW 8 app gives you instant, unlimited power. STORE, EDIT and LOAD mixer settings via the hardware or app instantaneously. You can even trigger snapshot loading with a connected footswitch to bring your performance to life. While the hardware provides 15 internal storage-slots for presets, the app can store an unlimited number of snapshots sorted by name, date and time.

    Outstanding Audio Quality (on the Go)

    With two Midas microphone preamps and internal 32 VFP-Processing FLOW 8 joins the X32, X-Air and WING series of digital mixing consoles. Even though the form factor and number of I/O is specifically tailored to smaller setups, each individual channel offers crystal clear audio and keeps up with its ancestors’ sound quality. All channels offer 4-band EQ, compression, as well as 2 FX and 2 monitor sends. All the monitor and main buses feature 9-band EQ and a limiter for preventing unexpected volume peaks on your speakers.

    Looking for that Big Sound?

    There is reverb and then there is REVERB. FLOW 8 features two independent studio-grade effects engines, each with 16 presets for refining your instruments and vocals with breathtaking effects sounds and depth.
    12 Reverb programs span from a very short yet lively Ambience to very long and smooth Temple or Stadium simulations. All of them come in two flavors and their decay time can be adjusted continuously. In addition to that you will get various delay and modulation effects for all styles and applications.

    Built-in Bluetooth Streaming

    Since compact loudspeakers are dominating the consumer market, bluetooth has established itself as a standard for audio-connections in the consumer world. Mini-jack sockets are being replaced more and more and many smartphones and tablets require special adapters to output analogue audio signals. Therefore, FLOW 8 offers an integrated Bluetooth receiver, that enables you to comfortably play music in between performances without annoying adapters and the need of being close to the mixing console all the time.

    The BT audio connection for playing audio back can be connected independently from the FLOW 8 remote application. While using BT Audio for playback on one mobile device, BT LE can be used separately on another device for the control application, if you wish.

    USB Multi-Channel Interface

    The internal USB interface offers 10 recording tracks and 2 additional playback channels. All input signals can be individually recorded and post-processed. This makes FLOW 8 the ideal partner for DAW home recording with zero-latency monitoring, streaming and podcasting. No additional USB audio interface required. All Input signals and the Main stereo mix can be sent to audio applications on a Mac-, Windows- or Linux-System for recording, editing or streaming.

    Whether you’re a singer, songwriter, small ensemble, teacher or presenter, gamer, podcaster or video blogger, producing at home or playing live in bars, café houses or in the streets, when practicing or performing… FLOW 8 will ensure impeccable audio quality and help you create amazing sound with ease.

    I have linked it up with my battery powered Maui PA, powering it from a 20K phone battery pack and can now do solo gigs or small band gigs in a field, on a car park or garden without the restrictions of electric power extension cables. After a typical 3 hours gig I still have 3/4 charge left on the pack. I've used it for solo gigs manually and open mic type gigs and worked it from an iPad sat in the room with no problems. It's solid and does the job well. For the price I can't fault it.

    I do solo acoustic sets, it’s a great bit of kit. I’d like to have more control of the EQ though , to be able to pin point FB frequencies with out losing to much of the others.

    For what it is, a digital mixer for under £200 its is fantastic. Obviously some of the features of the full digi desks are not there but neither is the price. Overall a quality product with professional sounds and features done in a way that’s more affordable. Don’t be put off by the manufacturer, they have come a long way and I not only use their products for personal use but have successfully used these in the professional arena without any issues. For future versions I would like to see more ability to work without the app although most features can be located within the menu and a different USB power adapter, my experience with these is that they are quite fragile and if on the road with this mixer this could become an issue. So far though no issues to note. Sound quality is excellent, no mixer noise what so ever (other manufacturers need to take not of that) if anything the sound is ever so slightly bright but not to the detriment of the audio, if anything I find this tends to enhance the outcome and can be EQ’d out of needed.

    Bought this as a backup for my X-Air 12. Tried it ou on a gig and it works brilliantly. Great sound for the price. Would like to be able to mute the 2 FX strips independently. Might be in a future upgrade.

    Mr Bryan Longos17th Nov 2021

    Tested the unit immediately after receiving it from DHL. Set-up of driver and firmware was quick and easy. All the knobs and buttons on the unit worked fine. The mobile app worked fine as well. The audio quality through my monitor speakers is very good. This can be used for outdoor events and for karaoke in my living room. The audio quality of the microphone during livestream is okay but not as good as I was expecting. If I adjust the settings more, or/and change my dynamic microphone to a more expensive one then maybe the audio quality will be better. Overall, the sound quality is very good.

    Mr Lee Hancox4th Nov 2021

    It's an excellent piece of equipment, my only two criticism are the lack of a noise gate for the guitar input and you have to be careful with the auto-gain feature as if it doesn't pick something up it will set the gain to +60db and even with the fader on minimum you will rapidly get into a feedback loop.

    A little bit of a learning curve but getting the hang of it. Dedicating an old phone to the management of the mixer.
