A&H are working on it so there will be one eventually.

It's like the iLive demo console we were promised.... 3+ years ago.  Time marches on & we purchased 5 consoles, Yamaha and AVID.

My point exactly.  I sure didn't to start any pissing matches between people that like the GLD and the X32.  As I mentioned,  I'll probably end up with a couple X32s for the dirt gigs but the GLD is a real winner when it comes to being extrememly flexable for many different applications.

Yup, it's still a little too early to tell how robust these are, but this is interesting to watch from a distance and relatively painless (for me, now).  The X-32 enjoys a dramatic cost reduction thank's to Uli tooling up his own motor-fader, and vertical manufacturing integration, while one needs to wonder why Alps (or some other vendor) didn't respond with a lower price based on volume quotes, or if his fader design will hold up similar to motor faders already in use. I have seen Alps get down and dirty with pricing only after a competitor enters the market (like Jung Poon faders) so we'll see how that one aspect plays out.

I do not mean to detract from the total effort put into the X32 software and design, obviously many man-years of effort that benefited from Midas oversight and contributions. Longer term this looks like a plan to split the market between Midas for higher-end low volume apps and behringer for the higher volume low cost low end.
=====

Now we can wait to see what a Behringer line array looks like, with Turbo influence (no not turbo the goat). High end line arrays are not cheap because the market size is limited so volume is small. The low end line array market is mainly for customers, half of whom probably don't even need a line array, or even know what line arrays do, so for the right price, these customers will be easier to satisfy, and will be easier to sell using the high end brand as a line leader.

This grand scheme looks good on paper. What could possibly go wrong?  8) 8) 8)

Turbo was in fact a point-and-shoot goat. 

He detested line arrays. 

fwiw

I thought he'd approve of the Turbosound Flex-Array.  Oh well, RIP, Turbo.

Jane: Take me to Yolanda's tonight Dick, and I'll make it worth your while.

Dick: Yolanda's is way too expensive and the place is way, way too small.

Jane: But Dick, they have a line array and it's all the latest rage.

Dick: My goodness Jane, we simply must go to Yolanda's.

Jane: What is a line array Dick???

Dick: I don't know Jane but it must have something to do with line dancing.

Jane: I love to line dance Dick. I can't wait to get there.

Dick: Me too Jane. And please wear the Victoria Secret undee's I bought you.

Spot: Another night alone licking myself.
 
Sally: Kiss my ass dog.
