What happened to the Behringer X32 Compact Digital Mixer? It’s there… just a little bit smaller. The X32 COMPACT delivers the best of the flagship X32 console in a slightly smaller package for installs at smaller venues, houses of worship, theaters or discerning audio smiths who may not need as many local inputs or motorized faders.
The X32 is a compact 40-input channel, 25-bus digital mixing console with 16 programmable MIDAS preamps, 17 motorized faders, channel LCD’s, and iPad/iPhone Remote Control. The X32 Digital Mixer packs everything you need to easily mix and record a live show into a compact, roadworthy package or use at home in the studio.
Powered by MIDAS & KLARK TEKNIK
When we began development on the X32 COMPACT, we called on our sister companies, MIDAS and KLARK TEKNIK, recognized the world over for their digital consoles and EQ/FX processing, for implementation support. The programmable, high-grade micpreamps found in the X32 COMPACT are based on a genuine MIDAS design, all the way down to their A/D converters. The resulting design ensures superior common mode rejection ratio (CMRR) and extremely low harmonic distortion (THD). The X32 COMPACT is an amazingly clean amalgam of high technology merged with superb user-friendly features.
We also received brilliant support from MIDAS and KLARK TEKNIK in designing X32 COMPACT’s GUI (graphical user interface), a major advancement in digital mixing made easy, productive, and well… fun! They also drew on their extensive experience in FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) coding for rock-solid, ultra-low latency digital channel patching—giving the X32 COMPACT the capacity to handle up to 168 sources on 168 destinations, including the two AES50 ports. You can expect to see more collaboration between BEHRINGER and MIDAS in the very near future.
You’re Well Connected
Ultimate connectivity remains the battle cry of the X32 COMPACT with its 40 inputs, 25 buses, and 16 programmable MIDAS-designed mic preamps. Not sure which X32 is right for you?We totally get it. That’s why the entire X32 family is designed to be beautifully scalable through the powerful AES50 ports built right in. Connect the powerhouse S16 digital snakes to these inputs to add an additional 16 mic preamps to your setup.
