So when we're in a venue, I have to find a large table to accomodate both it and the mixer, although I've also sat the mixer on top of it if necessary.

It's not heavy though. I've only used the feedback destroyer features, not the EQ features I don't think the EQ side of things is very user friendly.

Behringer FBQ2496

For the Feedback destroyer features, it's simple to use; first I clear the values from the previous venue and then it's ready to use for the current venue.

I get everything set up at a fairly low volume and then gradually increase the mixer volume until feedback occurs; the FBQ sometimes takes 2 or 3 seconds to catch the feedback which can be a little annoying to any customers that are already there.

But eventually, I can get the volume as high as I need. I tried the automatic setup at home but, after nearly blowing my speakers and hearing, I decided I wouldn't attempt it in front of an audience. I recommend a case or bag to protect it as it doesn't seem too sturdy; I managed to adapt my mixer case to fit it in.

Overall, I'm pleased with it and it achieves its purpose. I don't know whether it affects the overall sound quality, but we've only had positive feedback from the audiences since using it. The FBQ's rear panel. Photo: Mark EwingThe button labelled Reset is pretty straightforward, too, but it has the two aforementioned levels of operation: a short press will erase and reset all automatically set filters, leaving the preset or single-shot filters alone, but a longer press will clear the whole lot.

The Freeze button is pretty handy: whenever a combination of filter settings is working really well and you don't want any more automatic adjustments to be made, pressing this button will store and deploy all current filter settings, until the Freeze mode is cancelled with another single press.

As far as I can tell, the unit always clears the filters but not the filter types when it is powered down, unless the Freeze facility has been used to store the settings. Once an Automatic feedback filter has been deployed, how long it remains in place can be adjusted via the 'filter lift' button. The available settings range from 'off', which means that the filter won't ever release until manually reset, to anything between one and 60 minutes.

The Panic button the red one is used if everything gets out of control during a performance and will, if pressed for more than one second, re-assess the feedback situation and deploy filters as necessary, to automatically remove any feedback that's present. It's useful as a get-out-of-jail-free card, but with any luck it won't be needed very often!

The Learn functions give access to the setup procedure for the Single-shot filters only, which can be set in one of two ways. Assuming that the PA system is up and running, a brief press of the Learn button will begin the automatic process of detecting feedback and assigning appropriate Single-shot filters.

This can be done in the by now traditional way, by slowly increasing system gain with open microphones until feedback occurs at various frequencies, which will then be quickly detected and suppressed.

If you don't have time to perform this routine the FBQ will just find the frequencies as they occur, and this can be done even after the performance has begun if there is no other way — although you do run the risk of, for example, sustained keyboard notes being interpreted as feedback.

You can always press the Panic button later, anyway Additional Controls On the right of the front panel are additional controls that can be used to manage the Parametric EQ and its individual filter properties — frequency, gain and bandwidth.

Finally, the Bypass control applies a true hard bypass from input to output, by means of a relay. This is a useful feature, especially if the unit is in a rack and you don't want to be switching the power on and off.

Personally, I'd make this button the red one, because you can imagine the consequences of hitting it by mistake in the middle of a performance! All in all, this is a comprehensive control set that provides relatively straightforward and intuitive user access to all the important settings.

It's worth noting that the individual filter settings can only be manually adjusted when filters are in PEQ mode: when the filters are used as feedback filters, these characteristics are set automatically by the unit's processing circuits and cannot be altered, other than by specific user settings such as Speech mode see main text.

The Really Clever Bits If the Learn button is pressed and held, the FBQ goes into 'auto learn' mode, which employs a rather different method of finding and eliminating feedback in the system.

As soon as the button is held for a second, the numeric display counts down from 16 to zero in seconds, during which time a number of sharp pulses at dB are produced from the output. Throughout this process the FBQ steadily and automatically increases its gain by 15dB. The pulses will provoke feedback at various frequencies.

The 'worst' frequency will be kicked into feedback first i. This is a strange process to listen to, as you don't hear much of the ringing frequencies before the machine captures and eliminates them, but it's much quicker than gingerly pushing up a fader yourself and hoping the device will work before your speakers or audience start to suffer.

All you hear is a sharp 'tick' followed by the start of a ringing frequency, followed by the next tick, and so on, until the process is complete and the gain is returned to the original setting, but without the feedback.

It's totally automatic: all you have to do is press the button! It's always useful to have the choice of TRS or balanced XLR connectors, and the operating-level switch means that this unit can be interfaced with virtually any system.

Once you've decided what mix of filter types you need and have tweaked any parametric equaliser filters, the feedback setup is completely automatic and the end result is precisely what you'd want: more gain from your system before feedback starts to happen.

With bit, 96kHz operation, audio quality at this price point is beyond any criticism in my book, and with its automatic setup process I think this is an interesting and effective product.

As with all gear for the road, only time will tell if it's exactly right for you, or me, but my first impressions are definitely favourable and I'll be using the FBQ as much as possible until they take it off me! Behringer FBQ Good specification and performance, especially at this price level.

Fast automatic setup routine is a big help in live situations. Plenty of options available to the user. Irt's nice to see an internal power supply, with front-panel switch.There are eight LEDs per channel, left and right, and the clip level represents the maximum input level before digital clipping will occur.

SPECIFICATIONS

The available settings range from 'off', which means that the filter won't ever release until manually reset, to anything between one and 60 minutes. Some of the buttons access a function that's obvious from their label — for example, pressing the one marked Speech will make the unit operate in a less discerning way than for more critical music applications, and will apply more vigorous attenuation at a lower feedback level. With bit, 96kHz operation, audio quality at this price point is beyond any criticism in my book, and with its automatic setup process I think this is an interesting and effective product.

Summary An incredibly cost-effective processor that nevertheless incorporates some clever technology and is easy and effective to use.
