16 MIDAS-design mic preamps provide
plenty of inputs—and with its dual AES50
ports, X32 RACK can support up to six S16
digital snakes for massive I/O connectivity.
It can be your top-notch studio
recording interface today, control a
complex theatre production tomorrow,
or sit securely in your side-rack while you’re
mixing your band’s club gig from your
iPad. The X32 RACK is a revolutionary new
product genre that combines finest analog
I/O and powerful digital connectivity,
with ample processing for 40 channels,
25 buses and up to 152 signal sources.
8 powerful stereo FX engines coupled
with ultra-flexible routing options make
the X32 RACK the ideal choice for handling
audio now—and as your needs grow.
While every parameter of your
mix can be adjusted directly on the
X32 RACK through its 800 x 480 graphic
UI, networked remote control literally
makes room for new possibilities.
Several instances of our XControl PC/Mac
application, XiControl app for iPad/iPad
mini and XiQ app for iPhone/iPod touch
allow controlling the mix from exactly the
place you find most suitable.
