Behringer X32 RACK Digital Mixing Console

The Behringer X32 RACK Digital Mixing Console is designed to deliver studio-quality mixing capabilities with sublime analog inputs and outputs with powerful digital connectivity. The digital mixing console allows 40 channels, 25 buses and up to 152 signal sources, all of which are controlled and monitored via an intuitive 800 x 480 graphic user interface display. Featuring 16 superb mic preamps and dual AES50 ports, the X32 RACK is compatible with up to six S16 digital stage boxes for excellent I/O connectivity with ultra-flexible routing options. There are 8 XLR outputs with an additional 6 line in/outputs, a phones connector and a talkback section with XLR mic input. The X32 RACK mixing console is incredibly well suited for an array of different scenarios ranging from the simple to the highly complex thanks to onboard scene management.

 

Enhanced Productivity

The X32 Rack features updated firmware designed to improve workflow and includes a variety of new control options. The "Acoustic Integration" grants control over speaker and in-ear monitor systems whilst over 50 integrated FX plug-ins have been remastered for an excellent, updated performance. Users can use switchable expansion cards to connect to other mult-channel audio networks through USB, ADAT, ultranet, AES50 connectivity and more.

Creative Innovation

With a fluid, crisp and intuitive user interface, the digital mixer provides a smooth mixing experience. The X32 includes new scene management features with EQ functions such as a 100-band real time analyser, flexible library import/export capability and even faster FX editing. The front panel controls lets sound engineers adjust the live mix without the need for additional hardware. A 5" main display shows vital settings to monitor the mix and the high-contrast performance makes the mixer ideal for outdoor venues or whenever visibility is limited.

Acoustic Integration & 100-Band RTA

Working with Turbosound, Behringer have developed a system where mixers can easily integrate with speaker systems. The ultranet option allows streaming of up to 16-channels of excellent sound audio quality to a variety of Turbosound iQ speakers via a single CAT5 cable. The X32 Rack also includes a high-resolution 100-band real time analyser that features full bar and spectograph views to display audio energy distribution over time. Engineers may choose between large and combined views with large views displaying any available signal in full screen resolution, whilst combined views include the channel and bus EQ curves.

True Physical Modeling Plug-Ins

Behringer have added 16 new FX plug-ins to the X32 Rack mixing console for a combined total of over 50 different effects. The new plug-ins have been engineered on the basis of classic audio hardware such as Uei 1776 and Teletronix LA-2A compressors. There is also an innovative 5-band multiband compressor on-board the mixer. Finally, the digital mixing console allows for up to 4 studio-quality reverb within an 8 channel 31-band graphic EQ.

Show Management Tools

The Cue List is designed for adding scenes and snippets at different points of the show. The 500 cue entries can load any of the 100 scenes or snippets separately or at the same time for a flexible performance and operation that is simply unrivaled.

The Golden Preamp

Working with award-winning mic preamplifier designers MIDAS, the X32 Rack features brilliant mic preamps, programmable gain controls and A/D stages. The proprietary preamp captures every fine detail of the input signal source to deliver a truly fantastic performance full of clarity. The gain setting is fully programmable and covers a range of 72 dB with an accurate resolution of 0.5dB per step. Integrated with the analog input section are multi-channel A/D converters with an 114dB dynamic range for a performance with both low noise and distortion.
