What happened to the X32? It’s there…
just a little bit smaller. The X32 COMPACT
delivers the best of the flagship X32
console in a slightly smaller package
for installs at smaller venues, houses of
worship, theaters or discerning
audiosmiths who may not need as many
local inputs or motorized faders.
Powered by MIDAS & KLARK TEKNIK
When we began development
on the X32 COMPACT, we called on
our sister companies, MIDAS and
KLARK TEKNIK, recognized the world
over for their digital consoles and EQ/FX
processing, for implementation support.
The programmable, high-grade mic
preamps found in the X32 COMPACT
are based on a genuine MIDAS design,
all the way down to their A/D converters.
The resulting design ensures superior
common mode rejection ratio (CMRR) and
extremely low harmonic distortion (THD).
The X32 COMPACT is an amazingly clean
amalgam of high technology merged with
superb user-friendly features.
We also received brilliant support from
MIDAS and KLARK TEKNIK in designing
X32 COMPACT’s GUI (graphical user
interface), a major advancement in digital
mixing made easy, productive, and well…
fun! They also drew on their extensive
experience in FPGA (Field Programmable
Gate Array) coding for rock-solid, ultra-low
latency digital channel patching—giving
the X32 COMPACT the capacity to handle
up to 168 sources on 168 destinations,
including the two AES50 ports. You can
expect to see more collaboration between
BEHRINGER and MIDAS in the very
near future.
You’re Well Connected
Ultimate connectivity remains the
battle cry of the X32 COMPACT with its
40 inputs, 25 buses, 16 programmable
MIDAS-designed mic preamps,
FireWire* and USB 2.0 recording capability.
Not sure which X32 is right for you?
We totally get it. That’s why the entire X32
family is designed to be beautifully scalable
through the powerful AES50 ports built
right in. Connect the powerhouse S16
digital snakes to these inputs to add an
additional 16 mic preamps to your setup.
Travel Light… Travel Far
Need another X32 for side of
stage or the broadcast control booth?
X32 COMPACT packs all the features
with the same great 7" TFT screen and
customizable LCD scribble strip so you
can take on the world of sound with all
the firepower you’ll ever need – without
hauling a world of outboard gear and
analog snake cables.
