Behringer WING is a 48-channel, 28-bus digital mixing console with huge connectivity options —and up to 374 inputs and 374 outputs.
There’s something about WING that we really like. It’s not the ‘cheeky nod’ (by way of interesting names) to the original versions of of the seemingly endless amount of effects and plug ins you can load up, though they’re very impressive and sound great. Nor is it the nice big touch display that can be angled exactly how you like.
The connectivity is extreme. Take a deep breath for this cut-and-paste from Behringer:
“WING provides 3 x 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 48×48 channels of USB audio and another 64×64 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, and WSG, offers another 64×64 channels of audio in/out”
Of course, locally there is 8 original Midas PRO-Series microphone pre amps and 8 XLR outputs (all on the rear).
No, the thing that impresses us most in the first week having WING on display is the amount of people saying “Yeah, I’d use that” after they’ve had a 10 minute fiddle and imagined WING on a show.
