This morning some exciting news from Prolight + Sound 2013 landed on my desk – “X32 Digital Mixer wins MIPA award for Best Live Mixing Desk!” So what’s cool about this award? For one thing, it’s voted on by 160 magazines from around the world. But the coolest thing about winning this award from the Musikmesse International Press is the two mixers it beat out.
The X32 took the top spot over the $8000 Soundcraft Si Performer and the $105,000 DiGiCo SD5 – you didn’t read that wrong, the $2999 X32 beat out a $100,000 mixer. But, I shouldn’t be surprised. I have received notes and photos from happy X32 owners all over the world, from Gauteng, South Africa to Pokhara, Nepal (keep those coming!).
We’re excited the X32 has created such an impact in the industry, it’s an honor to be recognized for all the hard work BEHRINGER has put into this mixer.
Oh yeah – and look what was used to mix the ceremony….
The EURORACK UB1204-Pro!
