I had never seen their website until now, even that's a ripoff from another company. (Apple)

They are doing the snake via aes50 so that's a piece of Midas(Sony) technology. The question becomes what's the dependability of Chinese knockoff Midas parts? Maybe not a problem. What will be funny though is I wonder what the behringef cost of a aes50 snake that will have to meet the same specs as it's Midas counterpart will cost?

Yeah, it might be easy to dismiss based on its nameplate


Yes it is.

I find it quite extraordinary how quickly folk are ready to condemn equipment sight unseen on the basis of brand alone. I dont own a lot of Behringer (a couple of ADA8ks and a DEQ2496) but it all works 100% perfectly. Most of my Yammy gear is fine, but a 1974 TX500 bike bought new warped heads faster than electric kool-aid so I'm not about to show unquestioning faith in that brand.
Let's wait and see.

I don't condemn their equipment.

I condemn the company.

Would it be any different if the mixer had a "Designed by Midas" label on it?


For all we know, the Pro series were designed by Behringer  Twisted Evil

And when it fails who services this boat anchor. Gorton's of Glouchester? People who purchase expensive digital hardware usually have a larger and more demanding clientel, and failure is not usually an option. However, just like anything else, we'll see what happens.

Well that was before the Behringer X32.  I wonder how long before there is a digital powered PA head. Now every garage band can have a digital console.

  This mixer confuses me a bit because I am not sure what market they are focusing on. The price point puts in the area of consoles such as 24 channel analog Allen & Heath, Mackie and Soundcraft options as well as the Presonus and Roland digitals. Targeting the digital console market for the average weekend warrior bands and local/small regional Sound Co's makes no sense to me as Yamaha, Roland and now Presonus has that pretty much wrapped up. A/V house's will most likely skip on this product because of the name on it. How many TT24's did Mackie sell before discontinuing that product? Lots of marketing and hype but didn't quite live up to expectations as I believe the X32 will do.
 Another question which will be answered soon will be how much the digital snake/add on expansion cards adds the cost. Also reliability comes into play as we all know about their track record. I will watching with some interest though as early adopters will eventually make their way to these forums for help with problems and will be promptly told ("you got what you paid for"). After all, this product will be manufactured in China as everything else with the Behringer name on it. I don't care if Midas or Aliens designed it.
 If this turns out to be a reliable and capable mixer, markets forces will drive the prices down for entry level digital consoles across the board which will be a good thing for end users with limited budgets wanting to get into the digital world and have more options.
 FWIW, I own a few analog Behringer products in a briefcase gig rack but I would never trust my show to one of their products should it fail. If a comp or gate goes south, It's not the end of the world. Putting all my eggs in the Behringer basket it too much of a leap of faith for me. I would bet most people will skip on this product and early adopters will have buyers remorse at some point.
