32-Channel, 16-Bus, 40-Bit Digital Mixing Console with Programmable MIDAS-Designed Preamps,
Motorized Faders, 32-Channel Audio Interface and iPad* Remote Control
Product Overview continued
The X32 is the fully-integrated centerpiece of BEHRINGER's
digital mixing, audio networking and processing
ecosystem. It combines a control surface with streamlined
workflow, extensive I/O and signal processing into a
compact desktop form factor. Employing motorized faders
and rotary encoders along with a daylight-viewable TFT
screen, the control surface is designed to allow immediate
access to critical functions with total and automatic recall
of settings. Extensive on-board I/O includes 40 A/D and
24 D/A Cirrus Logic converters, 96 bidirectional channels
over SuperMAC AES50, stereo AES/EBU out, 16 channels
of BEHRINGER's Ultranet personal monitoring and 32×32
channels for recording over Firewire or USB.
A custom assignable section allows certain control
functions to be mapped directly to a set of dedicated
knobs and buttons.
A main 7"-wide, high-contrast color display provides
information for editing pertinent parameters of the
active function or effect. Relevant parameters are
quickly recalled to the display for editing via “view”
buttons in each sub-section. Each channel also features
a small, customizable LCD screen for track name,
number, color and source graphic.
A virtual FX rack offers 8 true-stereo (16 mono) multieffects processors, with 37 FX models that eliminate
the need for any additional outboard gear. 4 highquality effects such as delay, chorus and reverb
can run concurrently with 8 channels of 31-band
graphic equalization.
Abundant analog connectivity is provided via 32 digitally
controllable microphone preamps designed by MIDAS,
6 line-level auxiliary inputs and outputs, 16 XLR outputs,
stereo monitoring outs on XLR/TRS and dual phones
outputs. Each of the 32 microphone inputs can accept
balanced or unbalanced mic or line-level level signals and
include switchable phantom power, 72 dB gain range and
max +23 dBu level before clip. A separate external mic
input and the internal talkback mic allow communication
to various destinations.
The built-in XUF USB 2.0/FireWire 400 interface card
enables streaming of up to 32 tracks to and from a
computer for recording, mixing and mastering purposes.
The X32 integrates seamlessly with other X32 consoles,
the S16 digital stage box and the P-16 personal monitoring
system for complete live, studio and installed sound
solutions. Control the mixer from a distance with the free
iPad app or with editing and remote control software
connected via Ethernet. The X32's ease of use,
intuitive workflow, diverse feature set and integration
with other equipment make it an ideal centerpiece for
installed and production sound in any setting.
Dual AES50 Ethernet jacks that employ KLARK TEKNIK
SuperMAC technology contribute 96×96 signals to the
total count of 168×168 accessible sources and destinations.
Motorized faders, recallable mic preamps, programmable
routing and the ability to save and recall entire scenes
make set or program changes quick and simple. A top
panel USB connector enables system data to be stored
or a board mix to be recorded directly to external flash or
hard drives.
The Input section is home for 16 high-resolution 100 mm
motorized faders, providing control over channels 1-16,
17-32, Aux inputs / USB playback / FX returns. A separate
section of 8 motorized faders controls DCA groups 1-8, bus
masters 1-8 and 9-16 as well as matrices 1-6. The master
“X-channel” section allows instant editing of the currently
selected channel's gain, dynamics, EQ and other functions.
