Let's face it - effective use of stage space is imperative when performing in a club and table/floor space can be extremely limited in a home or project studio setting. What can you do when you need up to 152 signal sources feeding 40 channels and 25 buses, as well as 8 studio-quality effects processors, and a recording interface - and you don't have space for a standard mixer because your drummer insists upon using bringing all of his massive drumset and your keyboardist absolutely has to have those three 3-tier stands surrounding him?
You reach for the newest tool in your audio arsenal - the Behringer X32 RACK mixer, which offers all the power and flexibility of the X32 digital mixer in a compact 3RU (yes, you read that correctly, 3RU!) chassis.
While every parameter of your mix can be adjusted directly on the X32 RACK through its 800 x 480 graphic UI, networked remote control literally makes room for new possibilities. Several instances of our XControl PC/Mac application, XiControl app for iPad/iPad mini and XiQ app for Phone/iPod touch allow controlling the mix from exactly the place you find most suitable. 16 MIDAS-design mic preamps provide plenty of inputsand with its dual AES50 ports, X32 RACK can support up to six S16 digital snakes for massive I/O connectivity.
8 powerful stereo FX engines coupled with ultra-flexible routing options make the X32 RACK the ideal choice for handling audio nowand as your needs grow.
