Behringer's latest addition to the X32 Digital Mixer now allows the band to mix their own monitors using any iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad by simply downloading the XiQ app from the Apple App store. Designed to run on any device supporting iOS 5.1 or later the XiQ app is available free of charge.
The XiQ app allows performers and musicians to control their own monitor mix with full access to all 32 input channels individually or through Behringer's exclusive MCA (Mix Control Association). This powerhouse function allows each band member to group any inputs into four groups for immediate and focused control over their mix. Behringer says that, when "more me" just isn't enough, MCAs deliver the kind of control that novice users appreciate and professionals demand.
While XiQ allows personal monitor mixing using an iPhone/iPod Touch, Behringer continues to offer the P16 Personal Monitor System for applications where it best serves the need. Linking digitally to the X32 over Ultranet, the P16 system can support up to 64 personal monitor mixes, without using a single X32 mix bus. Both systems can be used simultaneously, resulting in the industry's most comprehensive and flexible approach to monitor mixing and control.
