The X32 is the commanding flagship digital mixer from Behringer. Featuring 25 motorized faders, LCD scribble strips, and a high resolution TFT color display, the X32 is designed to provide all the pro level features you would need for both live and studio use.
The X32 features 40 input channels with 25 busses and 16 XLR outputs, plus 6 additional line inputs/outputs, 2 headphone connectors and a talkback section utilizing an integrated or external mic. The X32 is 48-channel Digital Snake-ready via AES50 ports - featuring KLARK TEKNIK’s SuperMAC networking capability for ultra-low jitter and latency, allowing you to connect and sync external recording devices or chain multiple X32’s together. ULTRANET provides connectivity for Behringer’s P-16 Personal Monitoring System. Onboard is a 32x32 channel USB 2.0 audio interface with DAW remote control emulating HUI and Mackie Control, making it just as powerful in the studio as it is for live applications. A USB type-A connector provides file storage and uncompressed stereo recording capabilities. The X32 can even be controlled remotely via iPad, iPhone and other supported mobile devices; up to 10 simultaneously!
All of this amazing I/O capability wouldn’t mean much without an equally powerful and intuitive interface. The X32 features 25 fully automated, motorized 100mm faders that provide visual and physical feedback of your level adjustments. Individual and dynamic LCD Scribble Strips are included on all channels and busses, displaying text and images that tell you at a glance exactly what source is connected to each channel or buss. At the center of the X32’s operation is a 7” high resolution day-viewable Color TFT display for easy viewing of workflow components and parameters.
Internally, the X32 features a 40-bit floating point DSP, providing “unlimited” dynamic range with no internal overload and near-zero overall latency. 32 MIDAS-designed, fully programmable mic preamps provide audiophile sound quality, and each channel features independent compressor and gate dynamics controls. 6 matrix buses and 16 mix buses feature inserts, 6-band parametric EQ’s and full dynamics processing, plus 8 DCA and 6 mute groups. The virtual FX rack features 8 true stereo FX slots, including high-end simulations of the Lexicon 480L and PCM70, EMT250, Quantec QRS and more! Physical controls provide an intuitive and easy-to-use channel strip section with direct access controls and a graphic user interface. The X32 can store 100 scenes for easy recall of user setups.
Whether your application is for live use, studio use, or some combination of the two, the X32 provides all the features and functions that you’ll need today and in the future. And since Behringer provides X32 firmware and software updates at no charge, you’ll be able to unlock new functionality and FX plugins as they become available. Welcome to the future of digital mixers!
|Virtual FX Rack
Behringer supplies the X32 Digital Mixer with an onboard virtual FX Rack that provides access to eight true-stereo, multi-effects processors (16 mono) including delay, chorus, dynamics—and it can run 4 production quality true-stereo reverbs concurrently with 8 channels of 31-band graphic equalization, all without the need for expensive, space-consuming external hardware.
High-count I/O Options
Behringer made sure the I/O on this digital mixer abounds with 32 high-end programmable mic preamps; 6 Aux Inputs on 1/4 inch TRS; 16 balanced XLR Outs, plus balanced Control Room outputs on both XLR and 1/4 inch TRS connectors. A single CAT5 cable from FOH to the stage can receive up to 48 channels of audio input and deliver all bus outputs, along with 16 individual monitor feeds for Behringer’s P16 personal monitoring system.
Vital Info Instantly
Thanks to the Behringer's inclusion of a netbook-resolution, 800x480 high-contrast color TFT display, you are never more than one or two button presses away from any of X32’s eight highly intuitive control screens. Once you select the desired function, dedicated rotary/push encoders allow you to set parameters and source I/O assignment on the digital mixer, without the need to drill down through multiple layers of menus or page through a complex owner’s manual.
Versatile signal and scene management
Signals can be assigned to eight DCA groups (Digitally Controlled Amplifier), which provides simultaneous group level control via dedicated 100 mm motorized faders. The audio engineer can communicate with the talent by means of the Talkback section’s onboard mic or an external mic of their choosing. X32 Digital Mixer's scene management allows snapshots of high-level production mixes to be captured and recalled for future use (you can even save them to a USB stick). Behringer even made sure this digital mixer has a dedicated custom control section with user-definable knobs and buttons where you can create your own set of controls, making it easy to access frequently used functions on-the-fly.
Flexible Bus and Rear Panel
The X32 Digital Mixer provides extensive output connectivity including 16 balanced XLR outputs, six balanced Line I/O on 1/4 inch TRS connectors; dual Phones outputs; Main LCR (Left, Center, Right) buses; 16 mix buses (also configurable as subgroups) with Inserts, 6-band parametric EQ and dynamics processing; plus six independent Matrix Mixes with Inserts, also with 6-band parametric EQ and dynamics processing.
The rear panel also sports two AES50 ports, each with Klark Teknik’s rock-solid SuperMAC 48-channel I/O networking capability (for addressing a total of 96 inputs and outputs). Stereo digital output and MIDI are also supported, as well as ultra-low jitter, ultra-low latency communication between the X32 and digital snakes, remote stage boxes and outboard recording devices. A convenient top panel USB port is available for recording an uncompressed two-channel board mix straight to any standard USB thumb drive or for playing background music.
