Behringer has announced the X AIR Series, four new wireless, remote controllable digital mixers
X AIR Series models range from 12 to 18 inputs and include Midas-designed mic preamps, an integrated tri-mode Wi-Fi router, and four stereo processors that provide almost 50 of the X32 mixer’s FX plug-ins.
Select X AIR models are also equipped with multichannel, bidirectional USB audio/MIDI interfaces, and ULTRANET connectivity for Behringer’s P-16 personal monitoring system.
Designed for traditional front of house applications, the new X AIR model X18 also can serve as a universal dock for tablets and notebook PCs, while the XR18, XR16 or XR12 stage box format mixers provide onstage versatility, supplied with a rack-mount kit for installed applications.
“For the first time in audio history, Behringer has created a digital mixer which is integrated into a stage box and combined with a wireless router, recording interface, personal monitoring system and even a revolutionary auto-mixing function. While not only unprecedented from an engineering point of view, the starting price of US $299 is equally unheard of,” states Jan Duwe, Music Group senior engineer of conception.
All X AIR models are covered by Music Group’s 3-year limited warranty program.
