Behringer expands their X32 Line of Digital Mixers with four new models - X32 Compact, X32 Producer, X32 Rack and X32 Core.
Following up on the success of the X32 Digital Mixing Console, Behringer takes their technology further to meet user specific form factor and technical needs.
The new digital mixers are namely: X32 Compact, X32 Producer, X32 Rack and the X32 Core. They offer the same performance specification and digital connectivity as the original X32, but in various form factors to fit your space requirements and preference. Although they look different, you still get the same benefits as you would from the original X32 - with an array of virtual FX, MIDAS-designed mic preamps, and heaps of inputs and outputs. The new digital mixers also include KLARK TEKNIK-engineered AES50 ports, which are compatible with Behringer's S16 Digital Snake.
Since these new mixers are digital, they offer the same direct connectivity to your computer, making it usable in the studio or for capturing live performances straight into your favorite DAW software.
Here is what Behringer had to say about the new models:
The X32 COMPACT is a 40-input channel, 25-bus Digital Mixing Console with 16 programmable MIDAS Preamps, 17 motorized faders and all of the features, functionality and intuitive workflow of the original X32. Sporting a slimmed-down chassis, the X32 COMPACT is designed for applications where space is limited or the application only requires 16 local mic inputs. When connected to an S16 Digital Snake, I/O is expanded to full X32 capacity.
The X32 PRODUCER is a 40-input channel, 25-bus Digital Mixing Console with 16 programmable MIDAS Preamps, 17 motorized faders and a form factor that makes it ideal for professional and home project studios. The X32 PRODUCER is equally at home in a recording environment or on the road. A high-resolution, day-viewable 5” TFT screen provides complete visibility into the mix, FX and metering—plus it can be rack mounted via the included rack kit. Remote mixing is a breeze using an iPad or Laptop.
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 a fixed installation, the X32 RACK delivers the 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 a 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 X32 CORE 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 corporation, the MUSIC Group, had this to say, “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.”
