Behringer X Air XR18 Digital Mixer iPad and Tablets
The Behringer X32 revolutionized the world of digital mixers by reimagining their capabilities, and over 200,000 users are enjoying the results. With the new XR18, the same game-changing technology has been incorporated into a compact yet powerful rack-mountable mixer that will alter the way you record and play live music - forever.
An 18 input/12 bus portable mixer, the XR18 is housed in a battle-ready stage box and designed for use with iPad and Android tablets. Feel right at home using it in the studio or for live sound thanks to its 16 award-winning MIDAS-designed mic preamps, wireless functionality via the integrated WiFi module, and an ultra-quick, bidirectional USB audio interface.
Achieve astounding sonic performance for a very reasonable investment, and enjoy the freedom of dialing in that sound by manipulating mix parameters on the intuitive control apps from anywhere in the venue or studio. The app is available for free on iOS, Android, and PC.
Built-In Tri-Mode Wifi Router
Experience the ultimate in portability with the XR18's integrated WiFi module, allowing you to directly control your mixer's functions and forego any involvement of an external router. Experience what your audience in hearing by moving about the venue as you mix for a more accurate sonic profile than could previously be achieved. Step into the artist's shoes to adjust live monitor wedges from their perspective on stage - or better yet, let them do the work on tablets of their own.
Use Access Point to connect up to 4 iPads, Android smartphone/tablets, or laptops in less than a minute, or hard wire your connection directly to your PC, local area network (LAN), or dedicated WiFi router for extended range/5 GHz applications.
The XR18 is an obscenely powerful digital mixing solution for recording directly to your PC or iPad, thanks to its lighting quick and comprehensive 18x18 channel, bi-directional USB interface. Fine tune your monitoring mix with effects and zero-latency, while simulatenously sending up to 16 microphone signals and MIDI notes directly to your DAW for recording. Whether you're pushing the boundaries of music in the studio or capturing an intimate live performace, it has never been easier to capture audio with such phenomenal presence.
Maintaining maximum gain and microphone priority can be difficult in multiple-microphone speech setups, such as press conferences and courtroom proceedings. Well with the revolutionary X AIR Gain Sharing technology, that problem is a thing of the past! A landmark step in compact audio mixers, easily manage fully-automated mixes with up to 16 live microphones without any noise modulation or gating artifacts.
Automatically control the levels of all the selected microphones in real time through a process modeled after the legendary Dan Dugan automix system. Use this function to drastically reduce feedback, noise, and phasing issues that arise from two or more mics in close proximity of one another. Achieve a consistent gain structure across your mix, even with simultaneous speakers, with the new X AIR Gain Sharing technology.
