Anaheim, CA (January 25, 2013)—At NAMM, Behringer unveiled four new models in its X32 line—the X32 Compact, X32 Producer, X32 Rack and X32 Core—which all share the original X32’s digital connectivity, virtual FX, Midas-designed mic preamps, and inputs and outputs. All models include Klark Teknik-engineered AES50 ports, which can be connected to Behringer S16 Digital Snakes for expanded I/O regardless of mainframe size, and can be controlled using XControl for PC/Mac/Linux, XiControl optimized for iPad and XiQ for iPhone/iPod Touch.
The X32 Compact is a 40-input channel, 25-bus digital mixing console with 16 programmable Midas preamps, 17 motorized faders and the same features, functionality and workflow of the original X32. With a smaller chassis, the X32 Compact is designed for applications where space is limited or the application only requires 16 local mic inputs. When connected to an S16 Digital Snake, I/O is expanded to full X32 capacity.
The X32 Producer is a 40-input channel, 25-bus Digital Mixing Console with 16 programmable Midas preamps, 17 motorized faders, a high-resolution, day-viewable 5” TFT screen, FX and metering and a rack-mounting kit.
The 40-input channel, 25-bus X32 Rack Mixer features 16 programmable Midas preamps and a high-resolution 5-inch day-viewable TFT, housed in a 3U rack housing. Meanwhile, X32 Core is a 40-input channel, 25-bus Digital Rack Mixer that reportedly fits the abilities of the flagship X32 into a 1RU rack-mountable chassis. I/O connectivity requires the addition of S16 Digital Snake boxes and accommodates up to 96 remote inputs, or X32 Core can be connected to a DAW with 32 x 32 channels, FX and near-zero latency using USB 2.0 or FireWire.
