Following the success of its X32 digital console, Behringer has expanded the X32 line with four new models.
The X32 Compact, X32 Producer, X32 Rack and X32 Core all share the flagship X32's performance specifications, with powerful digital connectivity, plenty of virtual FX, Midas-designed mic preamps, and a wide variety of inputs and outputs.
All models include Klark Teknik-engineered AES50 ports, which can be connected to Behringer S16 digital snakes for expanded I/O regardless of mainframe size, and controlled using XControl for PC/Mac/Linux, XiControl for iPad and XiQ for iPhone/iPod Touch.
The X32 Compact is a 40-input channel, 25-bus digital mixing console with 16 programmable Midas preamps, 17 motorised faders and all of the features, functionality and intuitive workflow of the original X32. Sporting a slimmed-down chassis, the mixer is designed for applications where space is limited or only 16 local mic inputs are required. When connected to an S16 Digital Snake, I/O is expanded to full X32 capacity.
Also a 40-input channel, 25-bus digital console with 16 programmable Midas preamps and 17 motorised faders, the X32 Producer is ideal for professional and home project studios. A high-resolution 5” TFT screen provides complete visibility into the mix, FX and metering, and it can also be rack mounted.
The 40-input channel, 25-bus X32 Rack mixer features 16 programmable Midas Preamps and a high-resolution 5” day-viewable TFT, housed in a rugged 3U rack housing. Equally at home in a studio rack, road-case or even fixed installation, the X32 Rack delivers mixing and FX power for even the most demanding applications where PC/MAC/Linux computers, iPad or iPhone/iPod Touch control is desired.
X32 Core is another 40-input channel, 25-bus digital rack mixer that packs all of the mixing, routing and FX power of the flagship X32 into a 1RU rack-mountable chassis. I/O connectivity requires the addition of S16 digital snake boxes and accommodates up to 96 remote inputs, or it can be connected to a DAW with a full 32 x 32 channels, massive FX and near-zero latency using USB 2.0 or FireWire.
Uli Behringer, founder/CEO of Behringer's parent company Music Group, commented: “The introduction of the X32 demonstrated that a high-performance, cost-effective digital mixer, is not only possible, but has been embraced by a very demanding market place. Now that the X32 has earned critical user acclaim, we want to bring its functionality to applications where form-factor plays a more significant role.”
