A powerhouse mixer for live and studio racks

The Behringer X32 instantly became a milestone among mid-priced digital mixing consoles when it first appeared, and it has lost none of its appeal since then. Its clear workflow and interactive user interface together with the sheer wealth of features on offer made a lasting impact on the market and delighted countless users along the way. The 3 HU “Rack” version of the mixer essentially provides the same connectivity as the X32 Producer, without the physical fader and channel section. The X32 allows 16 mic or line inputs and six AUX signals to be easily mixed in an intuitive fashion – whether live or in the studio. The X32 Rack’s internal plug-ins and modern network connectivity come into their own when mixing live acts with extensive lineups, proving that it has the performance to match its looks. As a front-of-house mixing desk, it is easy to use and can be operated in conjunction with AES50 and Ultranet-capable devices such as stageboxes, monitor mixers, and speakers.

A digital genie

The Behringer X32 Rack is a ground-breaking digital mixer that comes at a budget-friendly price and has fulfilled a wide range of needs for many years. You need XLR outputs? The X32 Rack has eight of them. Backlighting for the key control elements? Done! And the digital mixer also allows engineers to record using an external USB drive, control remotely from an iPad, and view their parameters in detail on its 5" TFT colour display. The X32 Rack can even be expanded to an impressive 96 inputs using an AES50 bus and additional stageboxes. However, it is also ideal for use as a studio mixer thanks to its 32-in/32-out USB audio interface with DAW connectivity.

Complex lineup? No problem.

The Behringer X32 Rack is a fully equipped workhorse for small to medium-sized venues where the front-of-house mix and a selection of monitor mixes are needed from a single source without unnecessary complications. The X32 Rack also provides “cue lists” in which sequences of mix scenes can be stored and recalled – particularly helpful when it comes to complex and recurring mix setups, e.g. concert tours with multiple bands and performance productions in which the cast on stage is constantly changing. The mix workflow is also made easier by DCA groups, which allow key channels to be controlled with a single fader using the free X32 Mix und X32 Edit apps. The mix engineer can thus leave many organisational concerns to the X32’s clear workflow and concentrate fully on the sound.

About Behringer

The company, which was founded in Germany by Uli Behringer and now manufactures its products in China, has been known for affordable and great-value equipment since its very first product, the Studio Exciter F. An array of mixing consoles (such as the Eurodesk MX8000), signal processors, and later sound amplification and monitoring equipment, has made it possible for countless musicians to fit out their home studios, practice rooms, and mobile PAs within budget limits that were previously unthinkable. The acquisition of other companies, including Midas, Klark Teknik, and TC Electronic, meant that new product groups were added - and also resulted in the technical expertise of these companies being incorporated into product development.

The “most wanted” features

The Behringer X32 Rack is an impressive front-of-house mixer which covers virtually all of the “most wanted” features that are offered by digital rack mixers in its price range today. It also goes without saying that the channels’ “Send” outputs can be used to create monitor mixes, which means a second mixing console for the monitor sound is no longer required, and because the majority of the controls are backlit, this all-in-one tool is easy to use when mixing in dark surroundings such as clubs and concert halls.

Just Another X32
morsik 16.11.2019
I'm building personal monitoring Rack for band and X32Rack was the only choice. Friend of mine uses Soundcraft Ui24R but I really didn't like it's remote web interface. Since I used normal X32 previously and I knew it already it was very easy to set it up.

All 16 inputs with additional Auxes can be very useful for personal IEMs, since it's possible to get 16 mics into "board" and additional keyboards or anything which gives me at most 22 channels without using any additional digital snake (like S16). And well… 8 XLR outputs + 6 Aux outputs gives me possibility of making 7 stereo IEMs for band members which is very great!

Well… it could contain inbuild Wi-Fi at least, but hey - Mikrotik doesn't cost much and since I'm IT guy normally this is not much problem for me cause I can use that for more things like connecting also X-Touch to this - or - maybe even doing with Dante in future.

I'm writing this comment few days after Firmware 4.0 release and it works without any problems so far. I'm Glad that Behringer's still updates this consoles, they are very good for their price and fully featured.

DO
Decent Budget Workhorse, excellent and diligent customer service
Disabled Old Sound Dude 02.08.2022
The Unit itself has been around for awhile, so most are probably familiar with it.. it's a decent enough unit.. all versions including the rack version meant to be remotely controlled lack an integrated Wifi router, that the more basic XR-18 and such have but this is a much more feature rich unit compared to those but also older designed unit (that could use this update)..

but my main point to leave a review here was to remark on the excellent customer service I received on my international order to the U.S.A.

the main issue with buying internationally can be the import duty on the items (which start on anything above an $800 price point, which is per item not a batch of different items.). I was unaware of this when I placed the order, as I was eager to purchase due to the much lower price compared to shopping locally in the U.S. by several hundred dollars.. shipping was only $56 (and was only a few days in total). as soon as I hit "confirm purchase", my order was immediately put on hold by the international dept of Thomann.. and I received an email informing me of the potential tariffs due to the item being manufactured in China.. (despite my purchasing it from them in Germany) as the cost of the item was over that $800 threshold. they wanted to be sure I was aware that I might be hit with an extra charge, maybe even a substantial one, by the carrier who handled the duties upon it's arrival through customs in the U.S.

I did the needed research and it looked as if the duty might be at most 15% and I told them to go ahead and ship as this was acceptable..

now, the simple diligence in the first hold is appreciated, but somewhat expected by any company worth its salt for customer retention.

but my order was put on hold yet again, and at first I was frustrated because I had already given the go ahead.. at least until I read the email..

because they had actually read my "go ahead" email where I had stated my research found it was probably 15%, which i'd just mentioned in passing conversationally on my way to approval to ship.. and the reply in that second hold email stated a correction to my findings.. that the duty could be as much as 30%! and they wanted to be sure I was aware of that fact before committing..

and I was astounded.. they had gotten the go ahead already.. but they actually took the time to read the email and understand my circumstances.. and fully prioritize my potential well being over their sale. I was truly impressed as that is truly above and beyond the norm these days, and that's how you accrue customer loyalty. I mean, they do have consistently lower prices and that's what drew me here as I am on a budget as I am semi-retired due to disability but due to this, even if an item cost the same or a smidge more, this kind of customer service and diligence is fully worth my money. this is how business should be done. period.

I ended up taking the chance and all fears ended up being unfounded as for whatever reason, brokerage fees and duty only cost an extra $60 and I still saved several hundred dollars compared to if I bought from sweetwater.. it ended up not really being a big issue but what matters most is they really went out of their way to allow me to bow out of the sale due to a possible unforeseen charge wholly out of their hands. TWICE. this was my very first purchase, talk about putting your best foot forward. I have had great customer service before but this truly was above and beyond as usually it's about buttering you up for the sale and dangling carrots.. not willfully potentially sacrificing a sale, after already getting a go ahead to the first "are you sure?". color me impressed.

also, the interaction was very congenial. I made a joke about labeling it as a really expensive pair of socks.. (as I saw textiles are potentially exempt.. silly joke)..

when I made a reply email just to inform them of the results of the import duties.. as part of their reply I got an "Enjoy those socks!" heh. it's silly but just a pleasant exchange to go along with the real diligence looking out for me as a customer at the risk of my abandoning the sale..

This being my only transaction with them so far (and there will be more..) , I just can only hope that this wasn't some fluke or one exceptional employee.. but we will see, I do have confidence tho that this might be the norm.

so, if you are wondering if this is a good site to order from internationally? yes. yes, it is. they took great care of me over and above, so much so that I took the time to write this glowing review, something I rarely do, if ever. just do your research on any item with a ticket price over $800, where it was manufactured.. it's not straightforward to be honest but I ended up pleasantly surprised when expecting the worst.. (I pulled the trigger as even if it ended up being the worst case, all that meant was I was paying the exact same price as I would if I bought locally in the U.S.). Thomann waives the EU export tax (dunno if that's procedural to all exports or something they specifically provide) but beware the import duties.. I thankfully was lucky as it wasn't much (paid to UPS, the shipper). but everything Thomann was personally responsible for, glowing review here all around. very happy with them.

D
Very Good For The Price
Dan B 09.02.2022
This is a great quality mixer with a very good price.

Pros: Full digital suite of channel effects & processing (EQ, compressors, delay, verb, etc.), small footprint, control interface on unit if wireless is not working, easy to learn and use software.

Cons: Preamps are good but not great, front control is a bit clunky.

Overall: This is a great little mixer for the price. It has an interface on the front so it can be controlled if there are any Wi-Fi issues. The back only has 16 XLR channels so you will need to buy a digital snake to realize the entire 32 channels but that is probably also a way to keep the cost at such a level. The preamps seem to me to be better than the standard Behringer pre-amps and may be slightly better than what one would expect for the price. The interface software is pretty easy to learn and gives you a full suite of effects and processing. Like all the digital boards I've dealt with, the best part is the ability to save a file and bring it back up when you work with that band again. I've seen these things thrown in kits during tours as a very inexpensive backup in case all else fails. It will get the job done (as long as it's 32-channels or less) and it's been a workhorse for us. Highly recommend.

My personal conclusion
Vikars 11.01.2018
Mixing without faders is absolutely possible, but it might be not for everyone. I have a SAC and recording studio background, so I?m used to do sound with Mouse and Keyboard only. The nice thing with the X32 gear is, that you can mix bigger shows simultaneously with the X- and the XiControl. This speeds up the workflow and it is quite safe too. If the laptop or the iPad fails, you have always one interface left. During my days with the X32 Rack I mixed sets solely on the XControl or the XiControl. Both is doable, but you have to embrace the software or at least learn to love it. Ok, I won?t do a festival with it, but for smaller set ups or repetitive events (same band) it works really well in the present development status in my eyes. In addition, I?m quite sure, that there is more to come from Behringer, which will enhance this topic a bit further. I would be nice, if someday you could hook up one Behringer BCF 2000 faderpack to the XControl and lock it to the eight virtual DCA faders. Than even bigger show won?t be a problem. But this whole topic is quite subjective ? you better check this out for yourself.
