German super-group selects X32 Digital Mixing Console for summer tour
6/20/2013 Seattle — BEHRINGER’s X32 digital mixers will take the stage with F.R.E.I. when they hit the festival circuit in support of their new album, “Grenzenlos” [Limitless]. Founded by 5 musicians with a bevy of credits from years of touring, F.R.E.I. could have chosen any console for their maiden voyage — and they chose BEHRINGER. For monitor duties, F.R.E.I. selected the X32 Rack plus the S16 Digital Snake for stage to front of house connectivity. By creating a dedicated X32 eco-system with total mix recall, the band is ensured of consistent monitor and mains performance wherever they go, as well as fast set up and sound checks. The five-month tour will showcase the band at 18 of Germany and Austria’s largest music festivals, including Munich’s Tollwood Summer Festival and the Berlin IFA Summer Garden with touring partners, UNHEILIG and PUR.
Daniel Wagner, lead vocalist for F.R.E.I. stated, “Kudos to BEHRINGER for putting lightning in a bottle! The X32 Series offers top-notch, yet affordable tools for the touring musician.”

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.
A fast-rising star in the German music scene, F.R.E.I. debuted their first album, “Grenzenlos” in February of 2013. Members include singer Daniel Wagner, drummer S. C. Kuschnerus, keyboardist Benny Richter, guitarist Olli Singer and bassist Dominic Paraskevopoulos. Collectively, they have sold over 10 million records with previous bands and toured extensively with major acts Leona Lewis, Natasha Bedingfield and James Blunt, to name just a few.
