[NAMM] Behringer confirms the 4 new X32 mixers
We announced it yesterday, and Behringer confirms today the expansion of the X32 mixer series with the Compact, Producer, Rack and Core models.
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 can be controlled using XControl for PC/Mac/Linux, XiControl optimized 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 motorized faders and all of the features, functionality and 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. A high-resolution, day-viewable 5” TFT screen provides complete visibility into the mix, FX and metering. It can be rack mounted via the included rack kit. Remote mixing is a available 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. It is PC/MAC/Linux computers, iPad or iPhone/iPod Touch control compatible.
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.
