Built in WiFi Router that lets you Mix from the Audiences Perspective
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!
The BEHRINGER X32 completely changed the game by rethinking what is possible from a digital mixer – and over 100,000 users are enjoying the results.
Now, that same incredible technology has been incorporated into a small, but incredibly powerful, rack-mountable mixer that will forever change both the way you record – and the way you play live music.
The revolutionary XR16 is a powerhouse 16 input portable/rack-mountable mixer for iPad and Android tablets.
It is ideally suited for both live and studio applications - thanks to its 8 award-winning MIDAS-designed mic preamps, convenient integrated WiFi module for wireless control, plus USB connectivity for file storage, system updates and uncompressed stereo recordings via the USB Stereo Recorder.
They’ve also included the rack ears and protective bumpers for added flexibility in your studio and stage applications!
The freedom to move around and manipulate all parameters of your mix with the free iOS and PC apps lets you dial in the perfect sound from anywhere in the venue – or the tracking room!
Advanced engineering and meticulous design deliver stellar sonic performance at an extremely affordable price – changing the game once again.
MIDAS – The Legend in Sound Quality
Ever since its formation in the 1970's, MIDAS has had a long history of innovation and leadership in the world of audio mixing consoles. Employed by the most famous touring acts and installations worldwide, legendary MIDAS consoles such as the XL4 and Heritage H3000 quickly became industry standards.
MIDAS has earned their impeccable reputation due to their no-compromise approach for audio and build quality and in particular for their Award-winning Mic Preamps which are considered by industry experts as the industry’s best sounding designs. Building on this legacy, the XL8 and PRO Series of Live Mixing Systems continue this great heritage of Award-winning audio quality.
BEHRINGER is proud to incorporate MIDAS designed mic preamps for the ultimate in high-quality audio reproduction in both live and studio environments. Find out more about MIDAS’ amazing legacy by visiting their extensive website.
Built-In Tri-Mode Wifi Router
Designed for the ultimate in mobility, the XR16 comes with an integrated Wifi module for direct control of your mixer’s functions – without the need to setup and configure an external router.
The XR16 gives you the freedom to focus on your mix, while allowing you to move about the venue to experience what every part of the audience is hearing.
Plus you can adjust live monitor wedges from the artist’s perspective – or better yet, let them mix their own IEMs and floor monitors via their own tablets.
- Access Point is the easiest way to connect up to 4 clients directly and concurrently (i.e., iPad, Android smartphone/tablet or laptop). This mode should have your remote control up and running in less than a minute.
- Wifi Client allows you to add your mixer to the existing wireless network where the controlling apps and devices are connected.
- Alternately, wired connections can be made directly to your PC, to a local area network (LAN), or when connecting to a dedicated Wifi router, e.g., for extended range or 5 GHz applications.
USB Connectivity and Stereo Recording
The front panel USB type-A connector makes the Behringer XR16 not only an amazingly powerful digital mixing solution, but also allows recording your live stereo tracks directly to attached USB flash media or hard drives.
Dial in the perfect live mix with effects and zero-latency, while sending a dedicated stereo mix to your thumb drive for recording, or play background music in a break.
Whether you’re making rock history in the studio, or you want to capture intimate live performances – it’s never been easier to record stunning tracks with exceptional clarity.
When your application calls for a multiple-microphone setup, such as an onstage panel discussion, press conference or courtroom proceeding, etc., it can become a challenge to maintain so many open mics – and preserve maximum gain and priority for the moderator.
A major first for compact audio mixers, our revolutionary X AIR Gain Sharing technology can easily manage fully automated mixes with up to 8 live microphones.
Based on the legendary Dan Dugan automix system, the XR16’s gain sharing paradigm automatically controls the levels of all selected microphones in real time, without any gating artefacts or noise modulation.
This function dramatically reduces the typical feedback, studio noise and comb filtering challenges that can occur when two, or more mics are in close proximity of each another. X AIR Gain Sharing technology provides a consistent system gain structure, even when multiple speakers are talking at the same time.
4 Onboard X32 Effects Engines
Equipped with the very same FX engines as the now legendary X32 Digital Mixing Console, the on-board virtual FX Rack provides access to four true-stereo (8 mono), multi-effects processors including delay, chorus, dynamics – plus the XR16 can run production-quality, true-stereo reverbs concurrently with 31-band EQ on the main and aux buses - all without the need for any additional hardware.
You can select any combination of high-end simulations of legendary studio effects, such as the Lexicon 480L and PCM70, as well as the EMT250 and Quantec QRS reverbs. On-board processing means your computer doesn’t have to do the heavy lifting during a mixing session with DAW plugins as the XR16 has a whole studio of FX under it’s hood.
Custom-designed, and physically modelled after some of the most iconic and sought-after processors, all effects run inside the low-latency environment of the X32 mix engine, ensuring flawless performance, flexible routing and the end of cable faults forever!
100-Band RTA for all Channel/ Bus EQ’s
The XR16 includes a high-resolution 100-band Real Time Analyser (RTA), with full Bar and Spectrograph views. This high-resolution RTA displays the audio energy distribution in 100 frequency bands over time – capturing a sonogram window of a full 10 seconds.
Switch between the Large RTA view, displaying any available signal in full screen resolution, or the Combined RTA view shown above each of the channel and bus EQ curves – and see the results of your filtering choices.
Additionally, the RTA can be displayed on top of the 31-band graphic EQ's in the Main LR or Aux buses. Monitoring and controlling frequencies has never been easier!
Uncompromising Channel Processing
The XR16 allows you to achieve the same incredible level of EQ finesse as the award-winning X32 thanks to its 100-band Real Time Analyser, which is built into every input channel and bus EQ.
Visual feedback built into the control app allows you to see and make fast, surgical adjustments to frequencies in need of a boost or a cut. You’ll wonder how you ever EQ’d without it!
Every input channel also features Low-Cut, 4-band fully parametric EQ and the same Gate and Compressor dynamics suite found in the X32 – with one very special addition; you can choose either Expert or Simple functionality.
In Expert mode, you can drill down and get your hands on every nuance of your dynamics. Or, if you’re more of the ‘plug and play’ type, Simple mode lets you either select from one of our 4 carefully optimised presets – or load your own channel templates.
Add to this 40-Bit, floating-point DSP and you’ll experience virtually “unlimited” dynamic range with no internal overload and near-zero overall latency.
In addition to the Main L/R bus for Front of House, 6 Aux buses are provided for dialling in the perfect monitor mixes, or creating a dedicated mix for your USB stereo recording – complete with inserts, dynamics, and either a 6-band parametric EQ or 31-band graphic EQ.
And if all these outstanding EQ options put a smile on your face, you’ll love it even more when we tell you that 100-band RTA's are available for these, too!
MIDI In/Out for Live Performance Controllers
The physical MIDI I/O port on the XR16 mixer can also be used for connecting external MIDI controllers, such as our X-TOUCH or B-CONTROL products, for dynamically controlling channel level, muting and panorama adjustments during your performance.
An upcoming firmware release will also support the Mackie Control protocol, allowing you to easily apply comprehensive remote editing and parameter adjustments via any compatible MIDI device.
Dedicated Apps and Software – All Platforms Covered
Since we realise that “one size doesn’t always fit all”, we went the extra mile and provided apps for all the most popular devices and operating systems. So we engaged dedicated (and highly caffeinated) development teams for our iOS, Android, PC/Mac and Linux based applications for the XR16 mixer.
When you download an XR16 app for your OS, you can rest assured that you will get the fully optimised experience we intended.
X AIR EDIT (PC/Mac/Linux)
If your application requires a computer for Behringer X AIR mixer remote control, the X AIR EDIT was made just for you.
Simply copy and launch the free software with your computer, connect to the mixer via its built-in Ethernet (LAN) connector using a Cat 5 cable (max. 100 m length) – and all X AIR mixer functions are instantly mirrored on your computer screen.
Since your PC screen is larger than the one on your telephone, X AIR EDIT allows you to open and scale more app windows, such as for routing or FX editing – letting you decide how much information you need at a glance.
All touch screens are supported, or you can use a mouse to adjust your physical mixer’s settings. You can even control multiple mixers remotely from a single computer, or create several strategically placed computer stations to control the same mixer.
With X AIR EDIT, your PC, Linux or Mac computer becomes your virtual mixer – both live and in the studio!
X AIR for iPad
Front of House is wherever you and your iPad are – thanks to the new X AIR app for iPad.
Simply download the free app to your iPad, set the Behringer X AIR mixer to Access Point mode and connect your iPad to the XR12 network that will show up. After launching the X AIR app, select the mixer image, and all of your X AIR mixer’s settings can now be adjusted directly from your iPad.
You can save your favourite scenes, and load previously stored scenes and presets to/from your iPad or customise your channel layout – all with the support of innovative drag ’n’ drop functionality.
X AIR for Android
Designed specifically for all Android mobile devices (2.2 or higher), which includes tablets and smartphones, the app can be used in one of two modes: full access mixing mode; or bound to a specific aux bus for creating personal monitor mixes remotely on Behringer X AIR mixers.
Using this free and easy to learn app, each performer can use their Android device to dial-in the perfect personal IEM or wedge monitor mix, without having to consult the audio engineer for assistance.
With the X AIR app for Android, personal monitor mixing just got a whole lot more personal – both live and in the studio!
But it doesn’t stop there – in full access mixing mode, the app provides control over all channel processing including the RTA overlay, effects editing, storing/loading scenes or presets, and much more – whether you’re running a 12" tablet or a 5" smartphone.
Stunning Performance – Superb Value
Three companies shared a common vision – to engineer and build the very best sounding, technically advanced audio products for discerning professionals.
The feature-packed Behringer XR16 is the result of the engineering, manufacturing and application expertise of legendary console manufacturer MIDAS, the iconic signal processing genius of KLARK TEKNIK – and BEHRINGER’s unique ability to deliver a superior value proposition.
