The X32 Rack from Behringer is a 40-channel, 25-bus digital mixer housed within a 3U chassis for live and installed sound applications. It features 16 programmable MIDAS microphone preamps, 8 XLR outputs, and 6 Aux inputs and outputs. The X32 Rack incorporates a high-resolution 5" day-viewable Color TFT display for front-panel menu access. Its dual AES50 ports feature Klark Teknik's SuperMAC networking capability for ultra-low jitter and latency. The X32 Rack 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 Rack has studio-friendly analog appointments, including a dedicated talkback mic input, a pair of 1/4" TRS monitoring outputs, and a headphone output. 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.
The front panel of the X32 Rack has a Color TFT display with 10 buttons and 6 encoders, allowing quick manipulation of mix parameters on the fly.
Versatile and Expandable
The X32 Rack can act as the nucleus of a flexible and expandable audio system, allowing connection of Behringer's S16 digital snake and P16 personal monitoring system (sold separately.) 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.
