The X32 Core from Behringer is a 40-channel, 25-bus digital mixer that fits in a single rackspace for live and installed sound applications. Its dual AES50 ports feature Klark Teknik's SuperMAC networking capability for ultra-low jitter and latency. The X32 Core also features an expansion port that comes filled with a 32 x 32 channel USB 2.0/FireWire 400 audio interface card, allowing you to record directly to a computer with zero-latency monitoring.
The X32 Core has basic analog connections, including a pair of 1/4" TRS monitoring outputs, a headphone output, and a talkback mic input. It also has a MIDI input and output. In addition to its AES50 ports, the X32 has an Ultranet RJ45 output for connection to P16 personal monitor mixer (sold separately.) A networked remote control connection is available, via Ethernet, for show setups with on-screen software editors.
Internally, the X32's 40-bit floating-point DSP processes its main LCR channels, 6 matrix buses and all 16 mix buses featuring inserts, 6-band parametric EQs and full dynamics processing, plus 8 DCA and 6 mute groups. It features powerful scene management capable of handling and recalling complex productions. A front-panel USB type-A port provides preset storage, system updates, and uncompressed stereo recordings. Additionally, the Virtual FX rack contains 8 true-stereo effects, featuring high-end simulations such as Lexicon 480L and PCM70, EMT250 and Quantec QRS.
Free Control Software Applications
Behringer iPad and iPhone apps for professional remote operation are free downloads on the Apple App Store. All of the X32's features can be managed concurrently from various locations and instances of the XiQ, XiControl, and XControl apps.
Front Side Control
A set of front-panel controls can be configured by the engineer to enable a restricted amount of user interaction, while hiding away all the complexity.
Versatile and Expandable
The X32 Core forms the nucleus of an ultra-flexible studio control room setup when paired with S16 I/O and P16 personal monitoring systems (sold separately) in each tracking room. The built-in 32 x 32 USB recording interface, 8 stereo effects engines, zero-latency monitoring and 100% total recall deliver the tools to handle a wide variety of projects.
