48-stereo-channel Digital Mixer with 48-in/48-out USB Audio Interface, 24 Motorized Faders, 8 MIDAS Pro Preamps, 28 Stereo Buses, 16 Stereo Digital FX Processors, 64-track Dual-SD Recorder/Player, Ethernet Connectivity, Remote I/O Connectivity, Capacitive Touchscreen, and Expansion Port
The personal mixing console.
The WING control surface utilizes a large capacitive touchscreen interface with touch-sensitive rotary controls for new ease of operation. Three separate fader sections and a Custom Controls section can be tailored easily and intuitively for meeting your personal requirements. No matter, if you need a specific bus to send fader next to the corresponding channel fader, or a dedicated “money” channel always at your fingertip, or even sharing the surface with two engineers - WING can be configured for elevating your production to a new level. You can even replace and customize the massive wooden armrest with something funkier if you like. The technical drawing can be found in Downloads.
What is the purpose of mixing in the first place? While considering the signal path of producing audio for live or in the studio Behringer were stunned to find that much of the terminology is still driven by historical technical implementation, rather than its actual purpose. Normally, consoles focus on inputs numbers assigned to channels and auxes. WING is offering a substantially different perspective by focusing on the Source as the reason for any mixing, say a bass drum signal or the lead vocal. Inputs are therefore given more properties than just a number. They can be in mono/stereo or mid-side mode, own headamp parameters like gain and phantom power, with specific source mute and metering. And they can also be given a colour, icon, name and several tags for grouping and filtering purposes. All of this is describing the actual source first before channels are used for processing or mixing.
The beauty of this is, you can label Sources using the WING Co-Pilot app while patching on stage and no matter if the signal is patched to a channel, to SD recording or to any other output, you will always see and refer to that Source.
All 48 input channels and 28 bus mixes can be used for mono, stereo or mid/sides sources. Assigning a stereo source to any channel, automatically renders the channel stereo. And btw, there is no need for rebooting the console for applying any mode changes. Their configuration can be changed any time on the fly. See why it is a WING?
Legacy built in every Channel
Alternatively to the excellent WING EQs and dynamics, all channels and busses feature plug-ins for gates, compressors and equalizers, including high-end simulations modelled after the most famous hardware such as Pultec EQ, SSL Bus Compressor and Gate/Expander, SPL Transient Designer, Neve EQ, Compressor and Gate, Focusrite ISA and D3, DBX160, LA-2A, 1176, Elysia mPressor, Empirical Labs Distressor *
WING's innovative channel editing section is designed from ground-up for immediate channel status overview and flow of operation. It allows working on the selected channel processing, even when the main display is used for something completely unrelated. Touch sensitive rotary controls allow the displaying of the most relevant information at your fingertips.
Even more Custom Controls
A central section offers user-assignable controls, i.e. 4 rotary encoders and 20 buttons with 2 LCDs. You decide whatever functions you'd like to have within your reach, always. A big rotary wheel offers fine-adjustments of up to 8 user parameters or can be used for DAW remote control via USB MIDI. The control configuration also includes pre-defined functionality for USB and SD card recorder transport, show control and mute groups.
Perfect Balance and Ultimate Tone Shaping
WING Input channels feature lo-cut and hi-cut filters, tilt-EQ, all-pass or Sound Maxer, in addition to the 6-band parametric EQ. All buses, matrices and mains even feature 8-band parametric EQ. Alternatively, WING offers 8 meticulous emulations of famous hardware equalizers for use in each and every channel, whenever you need that special vibe on your signals.
The WING Premium FX rack boasts 8 true-stereo processors including spectacular emulations of some of the industry's most revered reverbs, original TC VSS3 algorithms, along with Lexicon, Quantec and EMT emulations.
Another set of 8 true-stereo processors provides a wide array of modulation, equalization, dynamics and non-linear effects, and even four iconic guitar amplifiers with cabinet simulations.
With 374 inputs and 374 outputs, a lot of digital connectivity is required. WING provides 3 AES50 SuperMAC audio networking ports for connecting digital stageboxes or sharing up to 144 input and 144 output streams with other mixing consoles. There are 48x48 channels of USB audio and another 64x64 channels of Audio over IP (AoIP module optional), plus AES/EBU stereo I/O. The WING expansion card slot, featuring the LIVE SD recording card or accommodating option cards for various standards, such as ADAT, MADI, DANTE, WSG, offers another 64x64 channels of audio in/out.
While Behringer has limited the number of local analog I/O, Behringer has not allowed for any compromise on their quality. It includes 8 original MIDAS PRO-Series microphone preamps and 8 XLR outputs with towering audio quality. 8x8 TRS line auxiliary ins and outs help to bring in signals from media players or computers. If that's not enough local analogue I/O, a brand new StageCONNECT interface allows connecting breakout boxes. Delivering up to 32 channels of low-latency input or output over a single standard XLR microphone cable if needed.
Automixing with 2 groups of gain sharing is available on any 16 input channels. The dependable and fast algorithm automatically tracks which microphone is receiving the highest levels, increases its channel gain, while reducing the sum of gain for all other channels in the same group. The ambient noise level will remain constantly low, while intelligibility and gain before feedback are increased considerably. It is the ideal tool for corporate events, panel discussions, HOW or broadcast applications with several speakers.
A maximum of 16 stereo inserts can be used for applying internal FX or outboard processing to any input channels or buses.
Trigger: MIDI In/Out plus additional 2x2 GPIO allow triggering console events and interfacing with external show control
- Accurate: 40-Bit floating-point processing at 48 or 44.1 kHz, with 1ms round-trip latency
- Double Solo: Dual solo/monitor buses per channel for monitoring over phones/IEM and/or floor wedges
- RC and OSC: Networked remote control supports binary and OSC communication and allows working on the console from the distance. Open for 3rd-party applications, in addition to Behringer's cross-platform app, WING CO-PILOT
