Full Behringer X32 Functionality in a Smaller Footprint!

The Behringer X32 Compact Digital Mixer puts the revolutionary digital mixing capabilities of the Behringer X32 into a more compact and transportable unit! It has the same essential functionality as the full-size X32, with a few key layout differences that streamline the size. To start, there are 8 fewer input faders compared to the full X32. The physical Bus Send Encoders have been removed from the channel strip and are now accessed via the LCD menu. The Assign Section on this unit is smaller too, with 8 buttons on a single layer.

As a smaller sibling to the original X32, this Compact version boasts 16 MIDAS-designed mic preamps -- making it a killer board for live or studio recording. Record straight into your DAW with the X32 Compact's 32 x 32 USB interface.

Learn more about the Behringer X32 Compact in this video:


A Paradigm Shift in Digital Mixing

The Behringer X32 is a huge leap forward for digital mixing. This board brings together unbeatable sonics with vast functionality, all in one elegant and easy-to-navigate interface. This Compact version boasts 16 individual audiophile-grade microphone preamps, 40 total channels of processing, and 8 balanced XLR outputs. It hooks up to your computer and preferred DAW through a standard USB interface (expandable to FireWire, MADI, Dante or ADAT with expansion cards), ensuring ease in the most complex live or studio situations. The layout is intuitive and thoughtfully designed, allowing you to move quickly between channels to adjust dynamics, EQ, or FX "on-the-fly." Equipped with a library of top-notch FX and a fully expandable I/O, this all-in-one unit may well be the only mixer you'll never need again.

Pristine Sound

The board sports 16 MIDAS-designed mic preamps, yielding clean pure sound without the need for any external amps. On top of that, the Virtual FX rack offers 8 true-stereo FX slots on each channel, with high-end simulations of celebrated units like the Lexicon 480L, PCM70, EMT250, Quantec QRS, and more. Plus, Behringer has promised that more FX inserts and firmware updates will be available free of charge on their website!

Super Intuitive Layout

The X32 Compact leaps beyond other digital mixers with its dedicated custom control section. This section comprises 17 backlit buttons and 13 rotary controls (all user-definable) with LED-collars so you can make quick, precision adjustments to each channel's FX, compressor, 4-band parametric EQ, etc. Each channel in turn has its own LCD strip for monitoring input and FX. Finally, a high-resolution 7" color TFT display makes it easy to visualize whatever aspects of the workflow you need to keep an eye on.

Oh, and if that's still not enough visual space for you, just download the free XiControl iPad app to monitor and control the X32 wirelessly with up to 10 individual iPads. Musicians on stage can finally take care of their own monitor mix and output levels in real time!

The Easiest Scene Management Yet

The X32 Compact's scene management setup creates exact presets out of your own custom mixes, allowing them to be saved and instantly recalled for future use. The 100 mm motorized faders on channels 1-16 bring your presets back with the flick of a single switch. And when you want to make adjustments recalls on channels 17-32, just hit the Flip button!

Recording Has Never Been Easier

Beyond direct-to-DAW use, the X32 Compact can be connected directly to an external hard drive with a single USB type-A connector, allowing for 32 channels of discrete recording in a live situation. So if you're at a gig without your computer, you can simply record your mix live into discrete, uncompressed audio files from each channel. When you get home, simply drop these files into empty tracks in your DAW for mixing or editing!

Unprecedented Connectivity

In 2009, Behringer's parent company acquired Klark Teknik -- and the X32 is the happy result of this brilliant technological marriage. The X32 is uniquely distinguished by the inclusion of two 48-channel Digital Snake ready via AES50 ports, which use Klark Teknik's SuperMAC networking capability to connect with existing snakes with virtually no jitter or latency. These ports allow the board to connect directly to an onstage or studio snake, for a total of 96 possible inputs running from an external box!

System expansion goes even further via an integrated card slot, allowing you to add up to 32 channels of digital audio via IEEE1394 FireWire, ADAT, TOSLINK, or USB.

Product Description

The Behringer X32 COMPACT is a 40-Input Channel, 25-Bus Digital Mixing Console with 16 Programmable MIDAS Preamps, 17 Motorized Faders, Channel LCD's, FireWire/USB Audio Interface and iPad/iPhone* Remote Control.

Lean Mean Mixing Machine

What happened to the X32? It's there, just a little bit smaller. The X32 COMPACT delivers the best of the flagship X32 console in a slightly smaller package for installs at smaller venues, houses of worship, theaters or discerning audio smiths who may not need as many local inputs or motorized faders.

Powered by MIDAS & KLARK TEKNIK

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 COMPACT'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 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.

You're Well Connected

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? Behringer gets it. That's 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.

Travel Light, Travel Far

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 you'll ever need -- without hauling a world of outboard gear and analog snake cables.

Do I Need an Expansion Card?

All recent X32 models come with the X-USB card, which offers USB only, as FireWire is fading in popularity. If you need FireWire features, you can swap in the X-UF expansion card, which offers USB and FireWire in one card. The X-MADI and X-Dante and X-ADAT expansion cards offer more connectivity options not offered on the included card.

"Great compact unit"
Overall: This is long anticipated unit that does everything very well, sounds great, and at a very reasonable price. I use it every week, and it does everything well. With the new FW 2.02 it just got even better, a whole new collection of FX, great RTA, and few other things added. Music Group really has been working hard at this one, and it beats any competition. If you won't need all 32 inputs at the console, this does everything just like bit brother X32. I am very pleased with it.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "AWESOME!"
Overall: This console is great! I was a bit leary about spending this kind of money on a Behringer product but it is every inch as good as everyone says it is. We use this as our main console in our home studio and our live mixer as well. Being able to save settings for our studio and different venues saves a ton of time. Wrapping your head around the routing is a major pain the butt at first but once you have it down everything is pretty intuitive. We had to call support a few times and they were awesome as well. They were able to work with a console on their end and gladly walked us through whatever we requested. On a closing note......... We have seen the x32 as the main console at every medium size venue we have played or been too lately.
Style of Music: Metal, metal, metal!
