Behringer has announced the release of a new, completely re-mastered XiControl iPad app for the X32 digital console.
It offers a re-skinned user interface, new feature set and several performance enhancements, including adding control over FX, scene management, input channel setup, monitor mixing and other enhancements.
A key new feature adds complete access to all eight onboard FX processors and allows deep tweaking of effects parameter settings; plus, all FX processors are presented with the same graphical GUI as seen on the X32.
Also, the brand new remote scenes manager allows fast scene changes on-the-fly thanks to a streamlined and intuitive interface. A new recorder control page provides full transport control over record and playback of tracks to/from a thumb drive connected to X32’s top panel USB port.
The new and improved channel editing tab in XiControl Version 2.0 now incorporates a complete dynamics section, allowing the user to control the performance of the 32 Midas-designed preamps from anywhere in the venue.
P16 personal monitoring buses can also be controlled now from one or multiple iPads, allowing performers to create their own preferred monitor mix with ease, or allow the engineer to dial in mixes from the stage.
Setting up the XiControl app is simple; just connect the iPad to a wireless network and plug the X32 into the same network with a cable. There is no computer required.
XiControl is available as a free download from the Apple App Store here.
