Press Release: Just as initial shipments of Behringer's coveted X32 Digital Mixer are hitting store shelves the company is rolling out its latest enhancement to the X32 experience. Offering near-complete control over the X32 from a wired or wireless computer, the XControl application adds several important new features to the already-lengthy list found on the console. XControl is a free download and is available directly from Behringer at behringer.com/x32.
The XControl application replicates the X32 control surface with all faders, display screens and major controls right on the desktop. Operators can control mix and assign functions, set and adjust effects and even meter individual inputs and outputs in real time. Connecting the X32 to the computer is as simple as adding a network device; just set the IP address and you’re done. Whether you use a wired connection in a studio or installed environment or prefer the mobility of a wireless solution for live sound, the X32’s control over common Ethernet connection will meet the need.
XControl software allows a user to connect to and control one X32 at a time by selecting from any number of connected consoles on one network. In addition, multiple instances of the application can be actively controlling the same mixer at the same time, allowing for sophisticated remote mixing, monitor mix and broadcast applications.
Press Release: Behringer have also announced the availability of the XiControl iPad App for its flagship X32 Digital Console. The app is a free download from Apple’s App Store and is compatible with all versions of the iPad including the 1, 2 and New iPad. Once installed, the app allows complete mixing control over the X32 Digital Console, opening a world of new possibilities.
The XiControl app offers fader control over Mic/Line inputs 1 – 32 plus Aux 1 – 8 as well as all 8 FX returns, 16 Mix Busses, the Main LRC and Matrix Outputs and all 8 DCA Groups. With real-time metering, channel labels that reflect the LCD scribble-strip settings on the console and individual channel mutes, the app offers a seamless transition from the control surface to the iPad. In addition, Behringer's powerful “Sends on Faders” functionality is enabled, allowing for powerful mixing options in real-world applications.
Setup and operation of the XiControl app is simple and requires no computer or additional hardware other than an existing wireless network. Plus, with true IP connectivity, you can use multiple iPads at one time to control the X32, allowing for a whole host of exciting applications including individual 32-channel personal monitor mixing, right from the iPad.
