Depending on your application, you may want to select an option other than the maximum 32 x 32 channel count to preserve system resources. Depending on its speed and memory configuration, some optimization for audio recording might be required. It is also possible to run a virtual sound check of all 32 input channels by recording them directly to a computer during a brief line check. The performers can leave the stage while you play back the recorded instruments from the hard drive and tweak the sound accordingly.
Generally, the Card outputs may use any of the available signal sources in the console local or AES50 for recording independently. When the X32 RACK is used in a quasi in-line mode, the card with connected computer represents a classic tape machine. Once you are confident about the fundamental settings, you can switch the channel inputs to the X-USB Card inputs for laying the tracks and monitoring the DAW outputs. Make sure Scene Safes are set in a way that all other parameters remain unchanged.
First, it will slow the required bandwidth on the interface down. Third, it allows you to run a fully-featured zero-latency overdub setup, which would be impossible if signals were run through the computer. In this case, the 16 input signals are put on channelswhile the tape card returns are put on channels The monitoring is directly fed from Ch as usual, including all processing and effects.
It remains independent from any computer audio latency, even though you can hear back all the recorded tracks without any repatching. This mode is tailored to suit a typical studio and overdub recording situation, with many input channels but only a few output channels for monitoring of previously recorded takes.
All 32 tracks would be fed from your DAW into the console where all the magic happens. Then only tracks of the complete mixdown would be sent back to the DAW. Jump to: navigationsearch. Namespaces Page Discussion.

X AIR Manual 1. Introduction 2.Home: Allows patching of physical inputs to the 32 input channels and Aux inputs of the console. This allows the user to create a custom layout of channel inputs that differs from the order that the sources are plugged into the rear panel, and is easier than physically re-patching physical audio cables.
Adjust the first rotary encoder to select which 8-channel audio input source feeds input channels of the console. As the encoder is rotated, the currently selected input will be highlighted in the vertical list of choices.
The selected source now feeds input channels of the console. To assign an 8-channel source for the other input channels of the console,simply repeat the process above, using the other four rotary encoders on the same screen. The X32 console allows for many different kinds of output signal paths, and this screen is where these output paths are assigned to an actual physical rear panel output so that the signal path can be patched to their eventual destination such as the front-of-house PA speakers or a powered stage monitor.
Adjust the 1st encoder to select which of the 16 rear panel analog outs you wish to assign an output signal path to. Adjust the 5th encoder to select the signal tap point for the output assignment.
The available signal tap points include:. Adjust the 6th encoder to adjust the amount of digital line delay applied to the output path as it is sent to the rear-panel physical output. As the amount of delay is adjusted, the current delay time is displayed in three different units of measurement: Feet, Meters, and Milliseconds.
Since these six outputs can have a wide variety of signal paths assigned to them, they can be used for a wide variety of tasks, such as:. Feeding the analog or digital audio inputs of a nearby video recorder To make an assignment as described above, perform the following steps:. Adjust the 1st encoder to select which auxiliary outputs to assign a source for. Choices include:.
Adjust 4th encoder to select specific signal path to feed the selected physical output. The Ultranet output allows for 16 channels of audio to be sent, in digital form, to various accessories such as a personal monitoring distribution box. Musicians on stage would then be free to each craft their own personal mix of these musical stems, all delivered from the FOH position to stage over a single Ethernet cable.
Adjust the 1st encoder to select which of the 16 channels in the P16 bus you wish to select an audio source for. Adjust the 3rd encoder to select a category of audio source to send to the currently selected P16 channel.
These categories include:. Adjust the 4th encoder to select which specific signal path to feed to the currently selected P16 output.Depending on how you have the channel set up, the output tap can be a burden or an aid to your outputs. Today, I wanted to dive into this and really help give a clear picture of how we can use this to our advantage. Much like the Mixbus sends configuration, with the output tap, we have a few different options, and here they are below:.
You will often times have two different settings between these. A perfect example is a Mixbus that is being used to feed a floor monitor. While the mix bus itself will typically be a Pre Fader configuration for the channel sends, the output tap on the routing screen will be Post-Fader so that if we need to turn the monitor down, you can do so using the mix bus main fader.
Where this affects is the direct out of a channel. So if you were feeding the direct out of a Pastor Microphone channel. And you had that direct output tap set to pre fader, if there was feedback and you muted it on the board, it would still be feeding into that direct out.
How would one best set up a feed for a floor monitor? With this example, you would want to have a MixBus with a channel sends preconfiguration. Next, we will take the MixBus 01 and feed that into an output for that monitor.
Take note that our output tap and channel sends preconfiguration are different! Some of you have a setup using the PM wired in-ear monitor systems. These are awesome systems to be able to have the musicians on-stage be able to adjust their own mix. This is an example where changing the output tap for these sends can be beneficial for the band.
We feed the P system via the P or Ultranet tab on your X32 mixer on the routing page. Typically we will send direct channels to the P so that the musicians can mix their own mix of 16 channels for their monitor. Make sure when you are setting up your console, that you keep tabs on what you are adjusting! I have seen time and time again of people making a mistake and choosing the wrong one. I have the XR18, my aux outs are set to prefader.
Is this correct or not? I do see that my volume levels are somewhat diminished and not what I had hoped. Please, for the love of all things musical, how do I set up my floor wedge. Usually a single guitar and vocal. Sometimes more. Please clear this up for me. Drew: is there a way you can make a single channel on the X32, post fader?
So that u can use that channel for a CD player and have any monitors associated with it, fade as well? Then my insert will have to be post… is that okay if it is an EQ to pink noise?Behringer x32 aux fx
Does it matter if the pink noise EQ is pre or post dynamics? I watched for video on this but I guess I missed something. Thanks Again. Previously used a presonus console where it was called global aux mute in controls.
We are on all in ear on stage and want to be able to hear before unmuting the house. Our worship leader uses it to give direction to all the band without it being in the house prior to start of the service. Your email address will not be published.
Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.Dear all, A lot of questions, my apologies! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Our current setup: X32, with two S16s on stage.
All inputs and outputs mapped to the AES50 I have an urgent need to use setup a video output for later today. And now I am thinking, is there any way to control the send level? PS : I believe one way would be use a MixBus as the signal, but that would mean driving each channel independently, so perhaps, that is not the best option at this moment. The last page is the XLR Out, is there any way to configure that for just one output locally on the board, while leaving the rest intact using the S16?

Re: x32, aux out, controlling the output levels, and other questions. Most routing involved a 2 step process: staging and output assignment. The Out can be used as a staging of the various signals to the banks of 8 or 4 in the case of XLR Out.
Those staging banks can also be assigned to the AES50 simultaneously. At this point, no. I do have a tool in the Scene Parser that would allow you to assign a value over many channels, but by creating snippets. I am planning on adding this feature to the Live Toolbox eventually.
Did you find my post helpful? Give kudos or mark it as a solution! Valued Contributor - Level 2. Outputs assigned accordingly of course, and the Matrix EQ has extra slope values to help separating frequencies between sub and mid-highs. I use this quite often for live mixing when a sub or more is available. Helps a lot in removing the "pumping" in the mid-highs and adds a lot of clarity to the whole mix, with nice punching bass. Dear Paul, and Patrik, Thanks, appreciate the help.
Quick question Paul, you say that I could route simultaneously to the AES and the XLR outputs, so that would mean that I could use the outputs at the back of the mixer at the same time, e. Yes you can Ben.
That's the beauty of digital routing. It can be sent to as many outputs as you need.All of the X32 family has the ability to adjust 38 channels of inputs. That is broken into 32 channels of XLR and 6 channels of Aux.
These are the main channels of the Behringer X They can pull audio from any of the inputs on the console. The benefit of these channels is that they have the ability to adjust all of the channel parameters of the channel strip. The auxiliary channels of the Behringer X32 can pull audio from any of the inputs just like Channelshowever, we have limited channels parameters which we can now adjust. These channels can only be sourced from the effects rack. The return has no ability to adjust polarity, gate, or dynamics.
However, we do still have the ability to adjust 4 bands of EQ. As you can see in this screenshot of the routing options, they are in blocks of 8. The default routing options of the channels will also pull from the corresponding number, so Channel 1 will pull from Input 1. Let me give an example of this. We now have the X32 pulling all audio inputs from the digital snake.
So you can have Channel 1 pull from Input 24, but the limitation is that you have the blocks of 8. Which would allow you to 1 to 1 patch through Dante Controller, however remote gain control would be more difficult. This is our most commonly found X32 out in the market. The X32 is a great audio console for the pricepoint that it is. It gives us an audio console which has 4 band fully parametric EQ, compression and gate on all 32 channels. There is an Effects Rack which has 8 slots to put everything from reverbs to emulations of classic compressors.
There are 16 mixbusses which can be used as aux sends 16 mono or 8 stereo with a choice of pre-fader or post-fader, or you can use them as sub-groups. If you route channels into multiple busses and compress those busses differently and then place them back into the LR buss parallel compression there will be no time delay issues. You will only fall into an issue if you insert an effect from the Effects Rack on one of the groups where you will find some phasing issues with added delay from the Effects Rack.
Behringer X32 Compact — The compact version of the X32 removes 8 channel faders still giving us access to the 32 channels, however, it is spread over 4 layers of channels instead of 2. Behringer X32 Producer — Similar to the X32 compact, but the producer gives us a rack-mountable mixer, however, removes the scribble strips. The scribble strips are the little LED windows above the faders which help label the faders you are touching!
This removes all local inputs and outputs aside from a talkback microphone and a monitor LR output which is sourced by the solo. One benefit of this product is the ability to use it just as an interface to expansion cards. Because of how easy it is to connect multiple X32 products together through AES50, you can have the X32 Core integrate with say the X-USB card for a backup recording interface or other more advanced setups. AES50 protocol is supported at distances up to m and can send and receive 48 channels bi-directionally.
This allows for multiple types of configurations. The RJ45 connector also needs to be a grounded RJ45 connector. Any UTP cable is not supported and will cause issues with the digital snake connection. It is recommended for robustness that there is an Ethercon Connector at each end of the cable.
For maximum input capability for the X32, you would need to connect two of these remotely bringing your total up to 32 Inputs and 16 Outputs. Having multiple of these on a stage can really simplify your audio line runs as a single STP CAT5e Ethernet cable can run up to 4 of these inline before you take up all of your inputs on the X These have the power available to run a Behringer PM without the wall wart.
If you are wanting to utilize these in a rackmount box, the rack mount ears are included in the purchase.This means that they can truly serve as additional assignable inputs and outputs. These 6 inputs are in addition to the 32 input channels, 8 dedicated internal FX returns, and 2 stereo playback channels from the built in USB Recorder, which by default also return on this input layer.
For example, perhaps you have a favorite outboard compressor that you use on kick and snare to get your drum sound.
Here you can change the insert to "Aux 1". You also need to actually activate the insert by pressing the encoder to the left, labeled insert. Now, take the AUX 1 output and feed the compressor. Take the output of the compressor and connect it to the AUX 1 input.
You can do the same thing on a mix bus, if you want to use an external Reverb or Bus Compressor. Have extra channels on layer 1 or 2 available? The X32 allows these signals to be re-routed to any of the 32 mic channels so that you don't have to flip to the AUX layer to access them.
Change the setting of the last column, labeled AUXto "Local ". Any input signal or bus can be assigned to an AUX channel by selecting that AUX channel and viewing the "config" page of the channel strip. Here, you can choose the source for that AUX channel.

Hi all, We are planning to purchase a X32 compact for our church and use all the outputs to hook up to a headphone amplifer for wired in-ear monitoring. Two of the main XLR outputs will be used for the main speakers and the other 6 for three stereo in ear monitors.
Furhtermore, would we need to DI the aux outs, as the headphone amplifer will be situated on stage, which is approximatley 15 metres away from the PA desk. Thanks Aaron. I know this is an old post and have a question regarding using the Aux Out s. We are using all 8 Analog out XLR's for house sound and stage monitors.

Re: Behringer X32 Compact - Using aux outs and main outs. Aux outs are balanced so as long as your headphone amp inputs are balanced, not a problem, otherwise small noise risk depending on environment.
Worth a try anyway. Not sure about the DI question. Is there a DI device that takes a balanced input signal via a long lead from the mixer output and converts it to an unbalanced output so you can use a short headphone lead?
The Aux TRS outs have a slightly lower max output level vs. This is exactly what we do on our Monitors Rack. I wouldn't have thought so, as the outputs are balanced but you'll probably need to convert them to a stereo input at the headphone amp.
Keeping the cable runs as short as possible is always the best option, but not always practical. Contributor - Level 3. Yes there are. I have a couple of Art DTI boxes. Great for this and for getting shot of ground loops.
Richard YClark; wrote: Yes there are. Offered at an attractive price too! Correction to my previous post If you want to keep the Compact at FoH and discover that the headphone amp is noisy, you could buy a stage box to provide the IEM feeds on stage and additional inputs for future use.
S16 only has 8 XLR outs, so not enough for your needs - sorry! Super Contributor - Level 2.
