MAHARAJAZZZ's review"Killer console"

Behringer X32 Standard
Nice tool, conceived for professionals.
I have only good things to say about it.
Except that I found yesterday someone who had the S16 and a X32 compact...
And I noticed that my problem wasn't isolated:
Male XLR connectors can get stuck in the console!
It's shocking: I had never had that with any other console.

The solution? I got a metal saw blade and, since it's a bit curved, I was able to saw off the male XLR until the input was free. Then think about leaving a mini connector so that nothing ever gets stuck again, and don't forget to cut the peg. And that's it. I don't even want to imagine if Behringer has to recall its 40000 consoles for such a stupid problem.

UTILIZATION

Great design and usability.
No manual, but there's really no need for one.

To access the functions, simply press view.

SOUNDS

Everything's great, converters, dynamics, filters, effects, soundcard, all good.

OVERALL OPINION

I've used it live for 6 months. It's excellent and has everything to become a standard.

cedricjablonski's review

Behringer X32 Standard
In a flight case with the S-16 x2 option and then wifi

UTILIZATION

I do PA for an orchestra

SOUNDS

Good preamp, the console works very good (up to now) after a month using it live outdoors. The effects are a small drawback, they are a bit fuzzy, it's a pity.

OVERALL OPINION

Good console for live concerts, the monitors can be managed via iPhone, iPad...IT'S GREAT, each musician deals with his own monitor, so it's a weight off your back, and it's easy to use. Berhinger is progressing....

asmileofachild's review"Very good!"

Behringer X32 Standard
Nothing to add here!!

UTILIZATION

I think this is its main strength: In concert, everything can be accessed quickly and intuitively, there's no need for a manual (which is only available as PDF).
You can access the dynamics section quickly, the EQ benefits from a very practical analyzer, an "assign" block lets you freely configure 12 pots and 24 buttons (distributed in 3 banks) to the parameters of your choice, intuitive "bus sends" and "DCA" sections, comfortable scene management and fast FX management.
The list is long, just to say that it's a pleasure to mix with the X 32.

SOUNDS

Regarding sound, it's hard to say, it may have some issues in the high end, but I'm really satisfied with the overall sound (post-EQ).

OVERALL OPINION

I've used it for 2 months (in concert and studio) and have no complaints.
Yes, I have used lots of other models in the same price range as the X 32 and also at much higher price points. If I had to choose between he LS9 and the x 32, I'd take the x 32 (despite preferring the yamaha preamps).
The hardest thing for me was to trust its reliability, I hope it was a good choice.
It's also not easy to convince bands to use this mixer, but every single one of them has been satisfied and even seduced by it. I have to explain many new bands that I do FOH for that Behringer has released a good product, etc., etc., which is a negative point (to talk to someone and say: "My mixer? A Behringer!" is not easy)

In my opinion, this mixer is for concerts, but it is also quite useful as a soundcard. You can do multitrack concert recordings without a sweat, the send-return connections with the DAW are relatively comfortable, recording on a USB is practical for rehearsals, I'm thrilled with the possibility to mix on a tablet (it's awesome;) ), both to control the monitors and to mix when the console is hidden in a dark and dirty corner of the venue (it spares me having to go back and forth from the center of the venue to the console and then again to the center of the venue and back to the console.
It features a practical built-in talkback mic on 2 assignable channels, the delay and reverb effects are good (but be careful not to change certain parameters live because it's not very smooth), the 31-band EQs are a bit weak, in my opinion, but the EQs on the channels are very good, plus, it also features an oscilloscope and noise gate.

Unbeatable value for money IMHO, I never would've thought I'd get such a console at this price.

stompboxjon's review"The workhorse "

Behringer X32 Standard
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.

UTILIZATION

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.

SOUNDS

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.

OVERALL OPINION

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.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use,
we need the manual for advanced functions

SOUNDS

the above nothing wrong, at the same time it comes to design Midas, except once or background noise is heard, reboot the deleted

OVERALL OPINION

This console is a marvel for the price at which it is sold.
The positives?
- Quality preamps
- Quality of built-in effects
- Ease of use: almost no need manual (better, moreover, because it comes with a Quick Start Guide 4 pages!)
- Features: 32 channels / 16 omni outs / 6 to / 8 stereo effects ... etc ...
Detailed specifications easily find the Behringer site.
The color 7 inch screen is legible we very quickly to super fast access menus with function keys beside each control area.
The "send on faders" function to view the send to a bus or from a channel levels is very convenient.

Remote control from a computer or an iPad (Android version expected) is useful for setting a return to his return. And as the table includes an ethernet port, no need for a computer "master" at the table, a simple router enough!

Negative points?
Ben must seek to find, however, that mainly lack, for me, the insert entries, we have for each channel on most tables I would say. In fact, it requires the use for it, and y'en 6 ... we quickly after ... although the 16 output bus (12 available) to help offset this concern.
And any technical problem from the one he had to change as a fader and we screen HS.

General advice:
I, unwanted my X32 for 1 year now, I've never had a single bug. I happened to have a crash recording via usb stick (but reboutage console without problem on my mixes frontage) of a usb key of poor quality.
reminds me more of the old firmware too, I'm currently on version 2.0 Beta (we have more control over the ipad for now, but the shift will come).
a RTA was added, very convenient. in safe mode, I visualize the frequency on Selected slice, very useful.
the little gate be set at the opening of a specific frequency and choice.
diffent techson we work on for the first time last month, and they were all surprised and conquered by the console and made a little lost on the ergonomic grip and at the beginning, but his did not last longtemp.

claudealain.zuchuat's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a console for the live"

Behringer X32 Standard
I think everything was already said.

UTILIZATION

I use a touchscreen PC and it's up to adjust returns directly from the scene.
The view button is a major advantage of this console as the send fader is used in both directions.

SOUNDS

This is a console that sounds like an analog. I find the less cold on a Yamaha sound.

The default is only 31 months to strip not attenuate enough.

OVERALL OPINION

A perfect console for the grace to live screens on each track and view button. A consol with great power thanks to a remote control. A very good value price for me. I beuge is seen only once and it came from the PC.

Unfortunately, do not expect to make home with this console.

Jahwalia prod's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Geniale"

Behringer X32 Standard
It lacks nothing in terms of connections.

UTILIZATION

Configuration and very easy to use.

SOUNDS

The effects are largely up to the live.

OVERALL OPINION

It calls me an opinion?
I just got back from tour. We spend two months at the lug from city to city.
I was only one thing to say: Congratulations!
Console reliable, robust, easy, effective. She has not always had the simple life and it was really a crash test to take the console on this tour. She got out in perfectly here. (There was just to crash and reboot automatically when I wanted to make use of the recorder USB. Suffisais to know. I do not try again).
Kyostal08/05/2013

Kyostal's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" X32"

Behringer X32 Standard
pity that the sampling frequency is not more variable than that ...

UTILIZATION

User Friendly ... A bit too bright ... it seems (at the brightness and color) a bit of a DJ table with function "Merry Christmas!"

SOUNDS

Not quite thoroughly tested to meet them.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall this is a great table in relation to its price.

It must be said that the pre-amp Midas it does it well ... I have weighed in studio with a Venice F32 and frankly it throws.
The EQ Klark Technics is very effective, but I could not compare with other EQ ...

Level converters is good, I've owned a Presonus StudioLive 24 and they remain in the same line of work.
One negative point! Limited sampling frequency 44.1 or 48kHz ...

Attention to motorized faders! not the most reliable and accurate ... sometimes some bug (they begin to rise alone 0_o ')

Control via the iPad or iPhone is very complete.

After we like it or not like ... compared with 01V96 it still remains "User Friendly"
dsiBel07/14/2013

dsiBel's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Console dream cheap"

Behringer X32 Standard
See the site behringer (there will be too much to say!)

UTILIZATION

English manual and too brief

Routing quite confusing at first especially for the bus to assign channels to physical outputs.

The driver for the USB port (I have not tried the FW port) is easy to install on my PC

The usual functions are they easily accessible?
Yes! Hyper console easy to use (at least for those who have used digital)

SOUNDS

For live use, this console sounds incredibly good. All those who heard him were amazed rang.

on the other hand studio, it is less convincing. I noticed a sleazy coloration. Otherwise, there is a good punchy sound, but a little dull, so not recommended for those seeking a sound crystal. In fact, it is very close to the sound of a good old analog. Like it or not amime!
In any case, it is quite the opposite of yams.
EQ do their job
The effect is especially means proper studio but live.

Good momentum.

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?
4 months

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes, all entry-level Yamaha MG, Mackie CFX 20 Soundcraft LX7 II for analog and Yamaha 01X Studio

Plus:
- Sound (warm and punchy)
- Feature (found almost everything we are looking for a console)
- Stability of the driver
- Ergonomics

The least:
- Fragile after a few out, I already have 2 buttons that start to drop.
- Assigning the output a bit confusing
- The LINE IN function for studio too restrictive: swapping in in Analog Card in (DAW worm of the console) can not be done in increments of 8.

Unbeatable quality / price.

With experience, you do again this choice?
To see the time!

I put 07/10 strength.
