If you've been mixing with analog consoles for a long time, the idea of switching to an all-digital format might seem kind of frightening, but the Behringer X32 Digital Mixing Console makes the transition from analog to digital an easy one. The 32-channel X32 gives you all the controls you're familiar with from the analog boards you're used to, and merges them with digital mixing advantages including total mix recall, built-in FireWire/ USB/ ADAT expansion, virtual FX rack, high-resolution 7" color display and more. Additionally, you will be availed of firmware updates that constantly add capacity to your X32. As of fall 2016, Behringer has added the following features:

Auto-mix on first 8 input channels.
X-TOUCH control over X32
Crossover filters added to main left/right mix and main mono bus.
Phase inversion added on routing page to all outputs.
New X32 Edit GUI.
X32 Edit can go full screen.
X32 Edit can open multiple windows and use multiple screens.
X32 Edit now has two user definable banks of faders.

Ready for your input
Use any combination of the local 32 console mic inputs or the networked digital snake inputs on stage. The dedicated channel strip section puts 17 backlit buttons and 13 rotary controls with LED-collars right at your fingertips for quick, analog-style adjustment of each channel's compressor, 4-band parametric EQ and much more. Each input and output channel strip features its own color backlit 128x64 graphic LCD, which provides vital channel information at-a-glance, such as input source names and icons, to quickly identify instrumentation in the mix. Each LCD's information can be updated either by using the onboard display or an attached computer.

Virtual FX Rack
The onboard virtual FX Rack provides access to eight true-stereo, multi-effects processors (16 mono) including delay, chorus, dynamics-and it can run 4 production quality true-stereo reverbs concurrently with 8 channels of 31-band graphic equalization, all without the need for expensive, space-consuming external hardware.

High-count I/O options
I/O abounds with 32 high-end programmable mic preamps; 6 Aux Inputs on 1/4" TRS; 16 balanced XLR Outs, plus balanced Control Room outputs on both XLR and 1/4" TRS connectors. A single CAT5 cable from FOH to the stage can receive up to 48 channels of audio input-and deliver all bus outputs, along with 16 individual monitor feeds for BEHRINGER's brand new P16 personal monitoring system.

Vital information is just a click away
Thanks to the netbook-resolution, 800x480 high-contrast color TFT display, you are never more than one or two button presses away from any of X32's eight highly intuitive control screens. Once you select the desired function, dedicated rotary/push encoders allow you to set parameters and source I/O assignment, without the need to "drill down" through multiple layers of menus or page through a complex owner's manual.

Versatile signal and scene management
Signals can be assigned to eight DCA groups (Digitally Controlled Amplifier), which provides simultaneous group level control via dedicated 100 mm motorized faders. You, or your engineer can communicate with the talent by means of the Talkback section's onboard mic or an external mic of your choice. X32's scene management allows snapshots of high-level production mixes to be captured and recalled for future use (you can even save them to a USB stick). X32 even has a dedicated custom control section with user-definable knobs and buttons where you can create your own set of controls, making it easy to access frequently used functions "on-the-fly."

Powered by MIDAS & KLARK TEKNIK
Behringer teamed up with its 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 mic preamps found in the X32 are based on a genuine MIDAS design, all the way down to their A/D converters. The resulting design ensures superior common mode rejection (CMRR) and extremely low harmonic distortion (THD).

MIDAS and KLARK TEKNIK helped in designing the X32's GUI (graphical user interface), a major advancement in digital mixing made easy, productive, and fun. They also drew on their extensive experience in FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) coding for rock-solid, ultra-low latency digital channel patching-giving the X32 the capacity to handle up to 168 sources on 168 destinations, including the two AES50 ports.

Bus and rear panel flexibility
X32 provides extensive output connectivity including 16 balanced XLR outputs, six balanced Line I/O on 1/4" TRS connectors; dual Phones outputs; Main LCR (Left, Center, Right) buses; 16 mix buses (also configurable as subgroups) with Inserts, 6-band parametric EQ and dynamics processing; plus six independent Matrix Mixes with Inserts, also with 6-band parametric EQ and dynamics processing.

The rear panel also sports two AES50 ports, each with KLARK TEKNIK's rock-solid SuperMAC 48-channel I/O networking capability (for addressing a total of 96 inputs and outputs). Stereo digital output and MIDI are also supported, as well as ultra-low jitter, ultra-low latency communication between the X32 and digital snakes, remote stage boxes and outboard recording devices. A convenient top panel USB port is available for recording an uncompressed two-channel "board mix" straight to any standard USB thumb drive or for playing background music.

Exceeds All Expectations!

First review, the pressure is on. Take what you may know, hear, think, remember about Behringer products and throw it out the window. When The Music Group Inc. bout Midas, everyone in the world of sound and music knew they must be up to something big. The X32 was claiming to be a game changer and they delivered! We got this board one week ago and I literally can not stop messing with it! I am trying to find one flaw or a single downside, I've yet to find one. So far, I would say I've probably logged 20-25 hours on it; testing, checking, testing, learning, checking...etc. I've routed the console to my JBL SRX system and I am completely blown away. If you are new to the world of digital mixing and consoles, this board will take a little time to get used too. Our main board I've been using for the last 4-5 years was an Allen & Heath... and A&H makes excellent products! I've had a little experience with a digital board (LS9), so I was fairly familiar with the basic setup of the X32. However, there is so much to this board, you really need a guide. The manual that it comes with is VERY basic... I had to download the full manual online to really help me get into the meat of this console. Layout: I really think this console has an excellent layout. The screen and functions are really great and easily accessible, and so is all the hardware. I've yet to find a flaw in the software and overall configuration of this board. The functionality is very easy, and once you've navigated a few times around the console, it's quite simple! Now comes the next part... the overall hardware and durability of the inputs, faders, and knobs. A huge selling point for a lot of people on this board will be Midas / Klark-Teknik pre-amps on every channel. This is how Behringer has re-defined their image. I imagine a lot of people who purchase the X32 will be quite impressed with this marriage of affordability / quality. As far as I've tested, the inputs all sound great! The initial sound of the pre's is what I would call "muscle" in the tone. Very nice work Behringer! I guess I'll learn all about the durability of the faders as we put some serious hours traveling and working on this board. If you've watched the online video about the rigorous testing they put the knobs and motorized faders (literally moving them back and forth thousands of times), then I have no doubt all hardware should last for a long time. The video shows the Midas crew putting the faders to work! The body of the X32 seems extremely sturdy, built like a tank and still lightweight. We just ordered an ATA case for it through NYCase Co., and am patiently waiting for them to ship it to me. I did get the 3 year Pro coverage, and Behringer has a 3 year warranty as well. Now some reviews on the sound: Effects - I think the effects are great. Effects that one would use for every application. There are plenty loaded on this console... many you will "recognize" as some of the very popular outboard-style effects from major brands (BBE, Lexicon, Focusrite, etc.) Effects can be ran via stereo or as "side chain", or you can just hook up any outboard gear via one of the 6 Aux send/return's on the board and assign it to a channel via routing. EQ's - Not only does every channel have a full parametric, there's also some really nice quick style EQ'S loaded as well. 31, dual 31, stereo 31, and all can be applied to any channel and adjusted via LCD control, or fader style. Big thumbs up to the effects rack and EQ's! The right side of the board even has a quick effects assignment group to quickly adjust your settings or even tap tempo your delay. Bus Sends - Very nice and easy control. I've got Buses 1-6 running our IEM's and all effects sends are on buses 13-16. Very easy setup... Just use the routing button on the screen to send all your output buses to your mixes. I really love the "sends on faders" button for this. DCA's - Sub groups as many call it. Very easy to set up, just hold the DCA button and the channels you want in that group can be 'selected' to the DCA. Configuration and channel assignment - just a GREAT feature. All channels can be configured to a stored setting and recalled (which you create) and can all be customized! Custom colors, icons, and names for every channel! I color coded all my instruments (ie. all things drums are yellow, Vocals are green, guitars are blue) and send them to their color coded DCA group. Ethernet - hooked up a wireless G router, assigned the IP address to the console through the Configure screen and I can run the X32 via my iPad with the XiControl app. Just another excellent feature! THINGS I'VE YET TO DO... Run the console via remote control to a PC (I'm a mac guy, hopefully they'll have software for all us apple users). They use iPads to control XiControl, so I can only imagine that mac software will be on its way. I've yet to use the USB / FireWire card or do any type of recording with it... but I'm going to multi-track a show in the next couple of weeks via FireWire to my macbook with either DP or Pro-Tools... I'm anxious to see how it works! I've yet to use the AES50 ports as I'm waiting for an S16 box to be released. I've yet to use the P16-m via the ethernet out... once again I'm just waiting on the release (S16 and PM-16m look to be released late August and I guess will be in stores sometime early September). Storage - I've created a live show setting, and you can store and recall up to 100 "shows". Just adjust your faders, sends, buses, effects, etc. and store them! There's even a set of buttons on the right side of the console for quickly recalling and loading a scene. Just another excellent feature! Overall, I guess I can't say enough about this console.

Bought the board on 12/17/13, installed in the booth the week of 1/6/14. There was a bit of a learning curve with the transition from the analog world, but not a horrible one. The electronics are sweet. The control over all of the aspects for the channel is top notch. The compression, gates and eq's are great and the board sounds good because of them. However, had I known about the quality and construction of the fader motors, I would have gone with another company. 2/23/14 we had finished up the sound check/rehearsal for the service and the belt came off one of the faders. I'm sure it's an easy fix, but that would void the warranty. We now have to box the board back up and send it to Vegas to be repaired, an event that will end up making us have to miss two weeks worth of services. I really had hoped that the Behringer quality had made the jump to reliability, but running the desk for six or seven weeks and losing it for two hasn't done much to build any confidence in that department. Just be prepared. There are a host of people that haven't had any issues, but that's not fixing the board that is shipping out on 3/10/14.

            Comments about Behringer Digital Mixer X32:

            The clean routing with 16 bus returns for excellent in ear monitoring has made the biggest difference for us. This board is also a great time saver in it's ability to save a mix as a scene for later recall. I bypassed all outboard eq equipment and ran the outputs directly to our main front of house amps for a signal so clean and quiet you can't tell the system is on until you put a signal through. The "sends on faders" feature is wonderful for setting up bus mixes and the ability to save scenes on a thumb drive really gives a sound man a sound mind when you have to share the board with other engineers. When you open the box, have a small phillips screwdriver ready to tighten down possible loose screws on the surface of the mixer.
            There's a lot of vibration during shipping.

              Comments about Behringer Digital Mixer X32:

              Been playing with the two that the base chapel bought for both of their chapels for a little over a year now. Once you really get down into them and play with them for a short while, they are AWESOME!!! I love the fact that you can control them from anywhere in the range of the router that you can connect to them. You can walk among the praise band and singers, and adjust their settings/levels wirelessly through an iPad or Android tablet, with X-32 Mix or Mixing Station. There are apps out there for each individual to adjust their in-ear monitor, if you have that capability. You can save individual input settings and scenes (whole board) for fast resets or save several scenes to rapidly adjust for the next group. For a military chapel, it's great to be able to "single touch" changes between one service to the next, Catholic, Contemporary, Gospel, etc. This mixer is easy for all novices to learn and become a "pro" relatively quick.

                We bought this for our church. We have used it for over a month now and I must say, the features and price point of this board is unmatched! If you are new to the digital boards, I highly recommend watching videos on setup. We did our homework and it was easy to setup. The board sounds fantastic! The ability to label the scribble strips (channels, DCAs, sends, etc.) has helped our sound techs (who serve as volunteers) with ease of learning the operation of this board.

                The only thing about this board that I do NOT like, is that you can NOT save the whole board into memory and load what you have saved in one move. Thought updating the firmware would solve the problem, but it did not. For now, we have to save every channel and load each/every channel.

                    We use this board at our church. The remote control capabilities were the deciding factor in our choice and they have greatly expanded our abilities.

                    Fantastic sound. Amazing how many pieces of external gear it replaces (better start selling your rack mount compressors and eqs).

                    You will not be disappointed with this board.

                      Comments about Behringer Digital Mixer X32:

                      I've been running sound and playing music for 35+m years. I wanted this board from the first time I saw it used by one of the sound companies we hire. AMAZING is just the tip of the iceberg! HIGHLY recommend!
