A while ago Behringer showed us a prototype of their digital console the X32, at that time under glass and very much still in the development stage.

Since then lots has happened in the world of Behringer/Music Group, and their purchase of the highly-regarded Midas and Klark Teknik brands has allowed access to top-level signal processing and console engineering know-how, much of which has found home in this new X32 console - in fact Jan Duwe, who gave us an introduction to the X32, says the console is pretty much 'powered by Midas'.

It's a powerful piece of gear too, with innovative interface and added functionality provided by the inclusion of the AES-50 protocol, and an ancilliary stage box, the 'Digital Snake' S16 to expand capabilities.

It'll be avalable around late May/early June, and at a MAP of around $2,500, it's likely to shake up the market a bit!

That looks like a very nice piece of kit--lot of bang for the buck, too.

If the X32 has Midas Preamps, (that would be 32 preamps)..based on my computation, it would basically be the cost of the whole board. It does not make sense. not with standing the cost of the knobs, faders, electronics and R&D. I'm just saying, if its a Behringer products without any promise of MIDAS components & quality, the price is great! but if you say that it has 32 Midas Preamps, Super Mac Klark Tecnik Protocol, DN-360 EQ graphics…and what's the big difference between it and a MIDAS PRO 2?

They really should call this the Klark Technic Midas X32. Those Brands are priceless while Behringer is almost worthless.
