Why does Behringer call it the X32 Producer? A producer is someone who lives life on the go, requires the best tools and demands the flexibility to handle any project. In designing the X32 Producer, Behringer packed powerhouse features into a rock solid form factor, well suited for mobile live sound/recording, home/project studios and installed sound applications. Thanks to its legendary onboard X32 mix engine, the X32 Producer can be your top-notch studio recording interface today, control a complex theater production tomorrow, or sit securely in your side-rack while you mix your band’s club gig from your iPad. A revolution in its own right, the incredible X32 Producer combines the finest analog I/O and powerful digital connectivity with ample processing for 40 channels, 25 buses and up to 152 signal sources. You can easily control every parameter of the mix directly on the X32 Producer using the 800 x 480 graphic UI, but the awesome flexibility of networked remote control literally opens up an amazing world of possibilities. Use the X32-EDIT PC/Mac/Linux application, X32-MIX for iPad, X32-Q for iPhone/iPod touch and X32-Q for Android to control the mix from anywhere in the room. You can even run multiple instances of these powerful apps at the same time, giving your performers the ability to mix their own personal monitors on-the-fly! With its 16 MIDAS-design mic preamps and dual AES50 ports, the X32 Producer can support up to six S16 digital stage boxes for massive I/O connectivity. Ultra-flexible routing options and 8 powerful stereo FX engines make the X32 Producer the ideal choice for handling audio now – and as your needs grow.
Enhanced Workflow & Multi-Channel Networking - With the introduction of the new X32 version 2.0 firmware, Behringer has not only dramatically enhanced the workflow, but also added all-new capabilities including "Acoustic Integration" for total connectivity and control of your speaker and In-Ear Monitor (IEM) systems. Then they completely re-imagined the more than 50 onboard FX "Plug-Ins" and added classic processor examples based on "True Physical Modelling". They’ve also made the X32 even more flexible, with swappable expansion cards for connecting to other multi-channel audio networking via USB, ADAT, MADI and Dante protocols, in addition to the onboard ULTRANET and AES50 connectivity.
Intuitive. Immediate. Natural. - X32 Producer is your mind-to-sound interface… the intersection of creativity and production. Whether you’re accustomed to digital mixers or not, the X32’s intuitive user interface offers a fluid mixing experience that instantly feels like home. And then there is the X32 Producer’s latest version 2.0 firmware. They’ve added new scene management features and EQ functions, including a 100-band Real Time Analyzer, flexible library import/export capability and faster FX editing. Behringer has also included 16 new FX "Plug-Ins" which are based on True Physical Modeling of famous classic audio hardware. This process means that they essentially "rebuilt" classic analog gear in the digital domain. And then they added the most amazing digital networking that allows you to connect to the new Turbosound iQ speakers via simple CAT5 connection. They call it "Acoustic Integration". This high-performance iQ Series also includes authentic acoustic modeling of some of the world’s most famous speakers - all remote controllable from your X32 Producer.
Bring It On - This streamlined, but powerful, member of the X32 family is built to handle the load-no matter what fate throws your way. Rack-mountable and equipped with 16 MIDAS-designed mic preamps, X32 Producer also comes with two AES50 ports to connect the powerful S16 digital snakes for up to 96 additional XLR inputs and 48 returns - all connected by Ethernet cable for featherweight deployment compared to analog snakes.
