X Air Series 16-input Stage Box/Rackmount Digital Mixer for iPad/Android Tablets with 8 Gain-programmable Midas Preamps, Integrated Wi-Fi Module, and Rack Ears
A Whole New Way to Mix
Behringer's cutting-edge X Air digital mixers integrate with your iPad or Android tablet for unprecedented mixing power and mobility. Plug in your mic and line level sources and mix from anywhere in the venue or studio via the free remote control app. The XR16 is a 16-input, rackmountable stage box unit with eight gain-programmable Midas-designed microphone preamps, Behringer's renowned X32 effects rack, a 100-band Real Time Analyzer on all channels and bus EQs, a stereo USB recorder, and integrated Wi-Fi, all in a convenient rackmount chassis. Just add mics, and you have everything you need to mix a live show and record a stereo mix straight to your device. The Behringer XR16 gives you a whole new way to mix.
Built-in Wi-Fi and tablet integration for unprecedented mixing mobility
Behringer's XR16 gives you the ultimate in mixing mobility. Imagine always being able to mix from the most advantageous spot in the house! The XR16 acknowledges the reality of modern live mixing — that you don't want to be tied down to a fixed front-of-house mix location. Integrated Wi-Fi gives you remote control over the mixer's functions from your tablet or laptop without needing to set up and configure an external router. Now you can focus on your mix, moving around the venue to experience what your audience is hearing in the back of the auditorium. Tweak the mix from the balcony. Adjust the monitors from the performers' perspective. This is live mixing the way it should be — natural and intuitive. The result will be better-sounding shows!
Pristine preamps, ultra-wide dynamic range, and more
With eight Midas-designed mic preamps and 40-bit floating-point DSP that delivers virtually unlimited dynamic range with no internal overload and vanishingly low latency, the XR16 delivers impeccable sound quality — the same as Behringer's acclaimed X32 digital mixer. The XR16's preamps are fully gain-programmable and remote-controllable from your iOS or Android tablet, for nearly unlimited flexibility in a live show situation. Because applications are loaded to the specific device, you can, for instance, prepare your channel layout offline while sitting in the tour bus before a show.
Features that will make you a sound-mixing hero
With so many variables beyond a mixer's control, Vbizz knows just how challenging mixing a live show can be. That's why Behringer designed the XR16 with smart features that can make you a sound-mixing hero. The XR16's channels are fully loaded, with per-channel low-cut filters, gates, full dynamics (including compression, limiting, expansion, ducking, sidechaining, and more) fully parametric 4-band EQ, and routing to the four Aux outputs. When it comes to EQ, the XR16 lets you analyze the frequency content of your tracks, courtesy of its 100-band Real Time Analyzer, built into every input channel and then sculpt them with the bus equalizer. With visual feedback built right into the control app, you can see exactly what you need to do, and make fast, surgical adjustments to frequencies that need boost or cut.
Virtual FX Rack with four true-stereo multi-effects processor
The XR16 has an entire arsenal of effects under the hood. The XR16's virtual FX Rack gives you four true-stereo (8 mono) multi-effects processors, including delay, chorus, and dynamics. This engine is beefy enough to simultaneously run high-quality, true-stereo reverbs and 31-band EQ, without the need for additional hardware. Select any combination of high-end simulations of classic studio reverbs such as the Lexicon 480L and PCM70, the EMT250 or Quantec QRS. The XR16's onboard processing means your computer won't be tasked with additional heavy lifting during a mixdown session with numerous plug-ins.
