From the UI, it appears that X32/M32 Aux Inputs are fully featured, balanced, assignable, and include even phantom power.Other than the TRS connector form are there any real-world capacity differences v. XLR inputs on these consoles?
It is not the aux inputs that are missing dynamics and gate but the default routed channel strips.If you remap an aux input to one of the 1-32 first channel strips you'll get a full channel strip for your aux.
This.What this means to you is that while you can mix 40 inputs with the X32, only 32 channels have access to dynamics or inserts. You also loose the high pass filter and the channel delay.So, if routed to a real channel, the only difference is that the aux inputs are a line level input, no pre-amp for mic level. You cannot enable phantom power on the aux inputs.Where it comes in handy is if you're using an X32 rack. It's got 16 mic level inputs, but you can re-map 6 of the line level inputs to channels and end up with a 22 channel mixer. I've done that myself, and it works great.
EDIT: Wanted to clarify. If I map one of the Aux in's to say channel 17 in a X32 rack will I have pre-amp gain and with a TRS to XLR adapter will it drive a microphone or do I need a pre-amp to feed the Aux in?
The x-adat card will set you back almost the same money as the sd8 so unless you need adat for other purposes I'd skip that config.
The behringer ada8000 is a 8-XLR in 8-XLR out adat pre-amp. The 8-XLR inputs on the front are routed to the Adat out in the back. The 8-XLR outs in back are pre-amp outs fed from the Adat in port in the back. If I loop a Adat cable from Adat in to Adat out in the back of the ADA8000 now anything plugged into the front XLR's are routed to the 8 XLR's in the back of it. It turns the ADA8000 into a basic 8 XLR in to 8 XLR out pre-amp. So I'd just use an XLR to TRS adapter cable's and feed the Aux in's on the X32 rack. http://www.music-group.com/Categories/Behringer/Computer-Audio/Audio-Interfaces/ADA8000/p/P0187#I have an 01v96 as well as a 01v that have Adat outs on them. The 01v96 has dual 8 channel Adat outs. If I was to purchase an Adat card for the X32 rack I'd use the 01v96 with its 16 channels of adat. This would give me of course 32 channels of input to the X32 but kind of clunky to do that. It would be easier to just get a stage box. Douglas R. Allen
