Behringer has introduced the X32 COMPACT 40-input digital live/recording mixer.
The X32 COMPACT is suited for small to mid-size venues, any larger venue wishing to add a side-stage monitor console or for mobile recording and broadcast trucks.
The X32 COMPACT's local connectivity includes 16 XLR inputs, eight XLR outs, six Aux I/O and expands to its full 40-input, 25-bus capacity when used with Behringer's optional S16 Digital Stage Box. The mixer also features an ULTRANET port for sending 16 channels of audio via Cat 5e cable to Behringer's optional P16 Personal Monitoring System.
The X32 COMPACT removes the need for outboard gear with its eight-slot stereo FX engine. It also entitles the registered owner to a free copy of Tracktion 4 audio production software to take advantage of the included 32x32 channel USB 2.0 recording interface. Additionally, the onboard two-track USB recorder can record any two channels of audio assigned to it in the routing menu.
The X32 COMPACT combines MIDAS-designed programmable mic preamps and Klark Teknik's AES50 networking technology.
MUSIC Group's Marketing SVP, Costa Lakoumentas said, "Our new X32 COMPACT console puts full-scale digital recording and live sound mixing within the grasp of an entirely new market. Now houses of worship, concert venues and the like can benefit from the X32's amazing technology and intuitive workflow, even if space or budget constraints prohibit a larger console. The addition of free Tracktion 4 Music Production software provides a complete live sound and studio solution."
The Behringer X32 COMPACT is covered by MUSIC Group's 3-Year Limited Warranty Program.
