Musikmesse International Press Awards (MIPA) has honored BEHRINGER's X32 Digital Mixing Console with the award for Best Mixing Desk (Live). Nominated for two separate awards, the X32 edged out the DiGiCo SD5 and Soundcraft Si Performer consoles to take the top prize in the Pro Audio category.
BEHRINGER tells us that, since debuting in the summer of 2012, BEHRINGER's X32 has received accolades from both the media and audio industry professionals for sound quality, ease of use and versatility. Close to 30,000 consoles have already been sold, making the X32 the fastest selling digital consoles in the world.
Uli Behringer, CEO for BEHRINGER's parent company, MUSIC Group, had this to say, "It is truly an honor to receive this award, especially against such formidable competition. The fact we were selected over such well-respected and much higher-priced brands inspires us to keep innovating and pushing the envelope. We are indeed proud of the X32."
About the X32 Digital Mixer
The X32 is aimed at both live sound and recording applications. The mixer combines extensive on-board processing and an intuitive control surface brimming with high-end features including motorized faders, individual channel LCD scribble strips and digital audio networking. The MIDAS-designed, digitally-controlled and recallable mic preamps, along with a standard USB2.0/Firewire interface, transform the X32 into a studio grade audio interface that has been praised for its sonic quality. Ultra-low latency AES50 network ports connect BEHRINGER's S16 Digital Stage Boxes for remote input applications without need for an analog snake. The X32 delivers unprecedented performance and a superior feature set in an impressively powerful, cost-effective package. Like all BEHRINGER products, the X32 is also supported by a 3-Year Warranty program.
