Behringer X32 Standard : stompboxjon's user review
"The workhorse "
The Behringer X32 Digital Mixer is a 32 channel digital mixer that has 6 matrix buses. There are 16 outputs XLR (analog) and 2 phones connectors, with an added bonus of a talkback function built into it. this unit is great for a medium sized personal studio. You can even download an iPad app that will allow you to mix remotely without a host PC. This app is also free which is great because most apps like this cost money.
Setting it up is very simple, but understanding it could take a little time. It can be a bit overwhelming at first because the set up of it is different than a lot of other major mixers that I have used in the past. It does come with a manual that will help you with anything you need help with and Behringer also has excellent phone support that will walk you through something if you need help.
The 7 inch color display is a great bonus on this unit, it would be nice to have a bigger built in screen considering the price of this unit. There are built in EQs and Processors on the X32, so you can get rid of some of the extra luggage that you might be toting around and just have the X32.
While using this mixer you will immediately notice that you are getting no latency from the inputs and outputs. You will have everything you need to have a solid and fluid workflow with this mixer. It even has 25 motorized faders and separate compressing for each channel. Working with this unit has become very easy over time. After I finally got the swing of it I was able to work quickly and do some very good mixing and recording with it. I do not recommend getting this unless you need this many inputs and outputs. Otherwise it will be a waste of money because it is not cheap.
