If this is for the studio, I'm guessing it'll work as a daw controller?
HUI compatibility?

I wanted this as a DAW controller, but WITHOUT the audio side. BUMMER.

I heard rumours they were going to release a DAW controller based on the X32. Misinformation and I am disappointed. This would have made a kick butt DAW controller, but I don't need all that audio crap.

Would it have been too dificult for Behringer to put the same combo XLR/line inputs as they have on their new iX16 mixer in this mixer? I would never need to use 16 preamps, but I have tons of line outputs from my synths that I now would have to get line to XLR converters for. In addition, I have several dedicated preamps.

Sorry but I think youv'e got it wrong. Many small studios already have summing, talkback, pres, fx and monitoring. Many have had that stuff for years. The Yamaha N12 and digital desks from Presonus also cover most of that list, minus the summing. Also, many of us who have UAD, summing boxes, monitoring controllers, don't wish to hand all of those duties to one brand. For me, different brands are better at certain things. What they don't have is a decent size DAW controller at a reasonable price. The last one was from Tascam, or Mackie, if you include the fact that you had to buy three modules at close to 3k-4k for a decent sized controller desk. This area is empty and I thought Behringer were going to fill it. Four different versions of the X32 are released and no one thought to just rip out the audio and sell the surface as a DAW controller. EPIC FAIL.

Completely agree.

This is a big hole in the market that is just itching to be filled.

It seems like behringer has all of the necessary resources. What are they waiting for?

Nope, not wrong.. Many small (bedroom) studios have ala cart pieces.

I for one, am not interested in another cheap controller.. We've had them (Mackie, Tascam etc) and have all all failed,or did not sell big.

What I want is a controller with analog front end, and not just some moving faders. That being stated, I think Behringer will come out with a SSL Matrix type unit.Giveing you and me the best of all worlds.

I think that is the point you are missing. We like having ala cart pieces!! We don't want any one brand covering ALL areas, because no One brand is best at everything. Even if this desk was from SSL, I don't want pres or reverbs from them, as they don't make the best pres or reverbs. I like having different options. For live, products like this are perfect, but an all in one unit for everything.....No

Unless all in one is a feature someone wants. My mobile setup is heavy, with lots of setup. This appears to be quick and easy. IF it sounds good....

I think this is where this product will shine, in mobile and live situations, but I am not sure about it from a home studio point of view.Still, I totally admit, the feature list is VERY impressive and I am actually pleased that Behringer are stepping up. They have the resources and infrastructure to bring so much more to the table and the X32 range is the a great step in the right direction

Anyone got a clue if all 16 faders can be used for DAW automation or if it will just be one bank of 8 like it is on the X32?

Who knows, if this is 'Behringer priced', it might not be all that different in price to, say, 1x MC mix + 1x MC control.
It'll certainly be cheaper than SSL's Nucleus.
In which case, just buy it and use it as your controller, plus occasions where you might not have enough channels for recording or CUE.

I don't think this release is something to complain about, though yes, I too would love to see a dedicated controller from them in the future.

The difference between the Producer and Compact versions are quite small from what i can see - Looks like the Compact has the LCD channel info displays but that's about it i think: Behringer: DIGITAL MIXER X32 COMPACT

This needs digital I/O for a prominent studio role. Most people are not going to hand AD/DA conversion over to this thing... the quality is just not there.

I briefly had an X32 and its on par sound wise with lower-end audio interfaces. Not bad, but a step backwards from where most home studios are.

Furthermore, the Firewire/usb latency/stability are not the best.

Also a larger screen, mute group buttons and lamp connector on the Compact. Rumors I have heard are a MAP of $1,999 on the Producer and $2,499 on the Compact.

No direct tap of pres a deal breaker for me.

The only possible interest I might have for any of the X32 line would be to use the "Midas" pres for live work. Due to the fact they do not have direct taps of these promising pres I have no further interest however the new ADA8200 that apparently does have direct XLR outs may cause me to break my vow to never buy another BUMRINGER product. My question for any of you "experts" that have actually worked with the "Midas" pres that Behringer now ownes and offers: HOW CLOSE ARE THEY to the real deal?
