Assisted setup and EZ-Gain gain staging
If you’re unexperienced with audio, running a digital mixer can be a daunting task. You have to know the right input to use for a source, how to set compressors and tweak EQs, and understand sometimes complex signal routing. But FLOW 8 flattens the learning curve by providing assisted setup with the FLOW 8 app. This setup wizard guides you, step by step, on how to set up a mix. Just select the source you want to work with, and the FLOW 8 app will walk you through the rest. Once you’ve got all of your mics and instruments connected, FLOW 8’s EZ-Gain feature will help you set the ideal channel gain by automatically adjusting to the input level of the source signal, keeping noise low and preventing clipping.
Studio-quality preamps, converters, and effects
With FLOW 8, Behringer delivers an affordable and powerful digital mixer with outsized sonic performance. It shares the same high-quality converters and 32 VFP-Processing found on Behringer’s popular X32, X-Air, and WING series of digital mixers, and it’s loaded with two studio-grade Midas microphone preamps, which are known for their uncolored, transparent sound. Each channel comes equipped with a 4-band EQ, easy-to-use compressor, and two effects sends for blending effects such as delay and reverb. Speaking of which, FLOW 8 boasts no less than 12 reverb programs, on top of numerous delays and modulation effects.
Bluetooth remote control with the FLOW app
Behringer’s FLOW 8 digital mixer has intuitive physical controls, including faders, encoders, and a large master volume knob, if you want to run a quick mix right from the front panel. But if you want to dig deeper, launch the FLOW app from any iOS/Android device.

FLOW 8 CLAMP Option - Simple and Solid
The optional FLOW 8 CLAMP is based on the original TC Helicon Perform Series side cap design, using a special material that combines extreme longevity and a dependable, firm connection with the mic stand. It consists of a metal bracket that is screwed to the mixer and the proprietary plastic part that clips on to the mic-stand without any screws. You can choose to mount the clamp to the bracket in 3 angles (0°, 15°, 30°) depending on your preferred mixer orientation.
The FLOW 8 CLAMP is designed to bring your FLOW 8 mixer within reach during your performance. On stage for a small club gig or in a recording setup, the best place will often be right at your microphone stand. It avoids unnecessary cable clutter and keeps the control surface of your FLOW 8 mixer permanently accessible. The clamp is designed for standard 5/8” microphone stands diameter (not exceeding 16.5 mm).
