Its time to upgrade my Presonus SL24.4.2. I really Like the X32 for its flexibility but I know Its been around for a while. Any hints, insight or words?

I personally think a replacement won't be around for a few years yet, the software upgrades and new expansion cards combined with the quality of the original package means that there is currently not really the need to make a new version yet.

Plus I guess the current model is still selling quite well and for people who want better quality there is the Midas M32.

It also means that the cost of the product can stay relatively cheap as the only cost to Music Tribe currently is in software updates which have been as far as I am aware (I don't own an X32 or any digital mixer) excellent, adding some really good features for free.

The Allen & Heath SQ5 is the pressure. For $2700 you get 96Khz, 48ch, full stereo busses, auxes, and channels, and a cleaner UI. Basically, exactly what you would want an X32 version 2.0 to be. Its a few years newer, has much more powerful DSP, and had the X32 as prior art to know what to fix.

 

I mix on the X32 regularly, and have the Midas M32 in my studio as a Dante router/headphone mixer/extra inputs device. It works great.

 

Behringer could certainly make it cheaper than Allen & Heath given the volumes they'd sell.

 

I am waiting to see who will break ranks and make a live board with Dynamic EQ. It's in the $20k boards from several vendors, but not anything under $10k. That is a seriously useful feature if you mix live vocals.

I agree! As much as I love A&H, my pocket doesnt. Lol. Their add-on equipment is so pricey but their quality is top notch.

I love my X32 rack. There's a lot of mixing power in that thing. :thu:

 

Right now, Behringer is probably thinking if it ain't broke don't break it. :cool:

If you're really desperate for dynamic EQ in an X32....you could maybe duplicate the channel strip, static EQ it, and then trigger the compressor/expander on the dynamics tab from the source channel.

 

Might get you there. You'd be burning a channel strip per EQ point though. Yikes. I didn't realize folks were doing that live with the bigger desks? I guess there's no reason not to, if you can rehearse with the talent or a virtual soundcheck version thereof.

I have the X32, X32 rack and the Midas version as well. Hard to beat for the money. Been using them since they came out and at the lower prices now are definitely our choice at that price point.
