I have the same feelings as others - This is one out of what, thousands? (Obviously I don't have exact numbers). Add to that the apparent response from Behringer as soon as it was brought to their attention, I'd say this is a non-issue at this time.I wonder about failure rates for other manufacturers... With Behringer a large number of people aren't as fair as JR and have been looking left-and-right for any failure they can find and then exploit with the X32... A smaller company which is just starting out a new direct-contact support system as well... Other manufacturers (Yamaha, Presonus, Roland, etc) didn't exactly have the "stigma" that Behringer did from the start, what's to say those mfgrs haven't had more failures per-cap than Behringer but we don't hear about them as much because more users of the "more expensive" crowd start out by contacting the mfgr first instead of going to Youtube video before giving the mfgr a chance to fix anything?
Just my $0.02... And before you ask no I'm not a Behringer fanboy (I cringed every time my employer got another piece of equipment with that name on it) but I am excited to give this a shot because it should mark at least a partial change in Behringer's history.
I apologize if my comments came across this way, but it was not my intention to seem as though I was accusing anyone here of pushing an anti-Behringer agenda.I agree JR, Behringer does have a stigma about them, and I can't read your mind nor have I been in the business nearly long enough to know what all those reasons are, but I have done enough reading and have some experience to see some reasons that I gave them that stigma early on.
I do have a legitimate wonder as to whether the difference in both Behringer's previous reliability and their typical clientele is skewing the perceived failure rates of the X32 versus the perceived failure rates of other digital consoles
for the reasons I mentioned before, and this was brought on by what I take issue with most in the post Bob brought to our attention - I can understand the poster's frustration with a malfunction, but instead of contacting Behringer about the issue (and this is where I draw my comparison because I feel like most users of brands like Yamaha, Roland, even Midas, would contact the mfgrs first) he makes a very aggravated sounding video about the issue.
I'm not saying the video is uncalled for, but under different circumstances it would show less of a... for lack of a better term, distaste... for Behringer. Perhaps if he had contacted Behringer first and secured the RMA or whatnot and THEN made a video bringing the issue to our attention as more of a heads up than the "I hated Behringer before, and now this proves why" vibe that I get from the video and post.
Again, my $0.02 about the video.. I'm going to have to stop commenting - I'm running out of money!
My intent here was not to pound the shit out of Uli and crew. My intent was to point to a failure that I thought was pretty strange to say the least. So in my book, end of subject as I have not seen any huge number of complaints or hate letters concerning the X32. I would have to wonder if anyone else had seen this issue or if it's a one of a kind. OK, you can all refuckinglax now.
Had a defective Vi6 today. I guess paying 20 times as much for your digimixer doesn't guarantee perfection :-)
Apple used to use those same connectors in their NuBus based Macs. They were pretty decent connectors but it was possible to have a bent pin double up in a socket hole with another. Was this one of those instances or was it a downstream short causing too much current to pass though the connector?
