XiControl app announced for flagship X32 digital console
Behringer has announced the launch of its XiControl iPad app for the brand’s flagship X32 digital mixing console.
Available immediately, the app is a free download from Apple’s App Store and is compatible with all versions of the iPad. Once installed, the app allows complete mixing control over the X32, offering fader control over mic/line inputs 1–32, plus aux 1–8, as well as all eight FX returns, 16 mix busses, the main LRC and matrix outputs and all eight DCA Groups.
With real-time metering, channel labels that reflect the LCD scribble-strip settings on the console and individual channel mutes, the app is designed to offer a seamless transition from the control surface to the iPad. Meanwhile, Behirnger’s ‘Sends on Faders’ functionality is enabled, allowing for optimum mixing options in real-world applications.
Setup and operation of the XiControl app requires no computer or additional hardware other than an existing wireless network, while true IP connectivity facilitates the use of multiple iPads at one time to control the X32. This allows for a variety of exciting applications, including individual 32-channel personal monitor mixing from the iPad.Article continues below
