Need the power of the X32 digital mixer in a smaller footprint for your project studio? Or perhaps you don't need a large number of local inputs and motorized faders for your application (motorized fader feature IS included)? The X32 COMPACT provides the best features of the X32, such as MIDAS preamps, easy-to-use GUI, customizable LCD scribble strips and high-quality onboard FX, in a more compact package - perfect for project studios, small to mid-sized performance venues, or houses of worship.
When Behringer began development on the X32 COMPACT, they called on their sister companies, MIDAS and KLARK TEKNIK, recognized the world over for their digital consoles and EQ/FX processing, for implementation support. The programmable, high-grade micpreamps found in the X32 COMPACT are based on a genuine MIDAS design, all the way down to their A/D converters. The resulting design ensures superior common mode rejection ratio (CMRR) and extremely low harmonic distortion (THD). The X32 COMPACT is an amazingly clean amalgam of high technology merged with superb user-friendly features.
Behringer also received brilliant support from MIDAS and KLARK TEKNIK in designing X32 COMPACTs GUI (graphical user interface), a major advancement in digital mixing made easy, productive, and well fun! They also drew on their extensive experience in FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) coding for rock-solid, ultra-low latency digital channel patchinggiving the X32 COMPACT the capacity to handle up to 168 sources on 168 destinations, including the two AES50 ports. You can expect to see more collaboration between BEHRINGER and MIDAS in the very near future.
Ultimate connectivity remains the battle cry of the X32 COMPACT with its 40 inputs, 25 buses, 16 programmable MIDAS-designed mic preamps, FireWire and USB 2.0 recording capability. Not sure which X32 is right for you? They totally get it. Thats why the entire X32 family is designed to be beautifully scalable through the powerful AES50 ports built right in. Connect the powerhouse S16 digital snakes to these inputs to add an additional 16 mic preamps to your setup.
Need another X32 for side of stage or the broadcast control booth? X32 COMPACT packs all the features with the same great 7" TFT screen and customizable LCD scribble strip so you can take on the world of sound with all the firepower youll ever need without hauling a world of outboard gear and analog snake cables.
