X32 RACK: Introduction
Welcome to the X32 RACK User Manual! After years of intense development, we are proud to offer a mixer that combines tremendous power and flexibility with a very user-friendly layout and intuitive workflow that allow you to get up-and-running right away.
The X32 RACK is a robust-yet-streamlined mixer that features all of the core functionality and processing of BEHRINGER's flagship X32 console in a smaller form factor. Extensive on-board I/O includes Cirrus Logic converters, 96 bidirectional channels over SuperMAC AES50, 16 channels of BEHRINGER’s Ultranet personal monitoring and 32 x 32 channels for recording over USB.
Abundant analog connectivity is provided via 16 MIDAS-designed digitally-controllable microphone preamps, 6 line-level auxiliary in- and outputs, 8 XLR outputs, stereo TRS monitoring outputs and headphones output. Each of the 16 microphone inputs can accept balanced or unbalanced mic or line-level level signals and include switchable phantom power, 72 dB gain range and max +23 dBu level before clip. A separate external talkback mic input allows communication to various destinations.
Dual AES50 Ethernet jacks that employ KLARK TEKNIK SuperMAC technology contribute 96 x 96 signals to the total count of 168 x 168 accessible sources and destinations. Recallable mic preamps, programmable routing and the ability to save and recall entire scenes make set or program changes quick and simple. A front panel USB connector enables system data to be stored or a board mix to be recorded directly to external flash or hard drives.
A main 5"-wide, high-contrast color display provides information for editing pertinent parameters of the active function or effect.
A virtual FX rack offers 8 true-stereo (16 mono) multi-effects processors, with 39 FX models that eliminate the need for any additional outboard gear. 4 high-quality effects such as delay, chorus and reverb can run concurrently with 8 channels of 31-band graphic equalization.
The built-in interface card enables streaming of up to 32 tracks to and from a computer for recording, mixing and mastering purposes.
The X32 RACK integrates seamlessly with other X32 consoles, the S16 digital stage box and the P-16 personal monitoring system for complete live, studio and installed sound solutions. Control the mixer from a distance with the free iPad app or with editing and remote control software connected via Ethernet. The X32 RACK’s ease of use, intuitive workflow, diverse feature set and integration with other equipment make it an ideal centerpiece for installed and production sound in any setting.
