Does Behringer X18 work?

Post by mrcashback » Fri Dec 26, 2014 4:32 pm

Does anyone know if the behringer x18 or xr18 mixers work in auria?? They look like a nice choice at a decent price if they are compatible.... Behringer site says that it functions as a multitrack interface to a computer, and they have thier own ilad app to run the mixing functions remoteley like the x32, but, can all 18 tracks be bought int auria simultaniously over the lightning cable?
I hope so, I'll be buyin one if it can

This would suggest the answer is "Yes" but I'd recommend asking Behringer as well :wink:

"18x18 Bidirectional USB Audio Interface for direct recording on Ipad etc." in specs so looking good..

I'm also following these , $200 cheaper XR16 is better for me as I only need the reduced 8 mic preamps .

However , Ipad control app is already available and reveals a much reduced DSP dynamics/eq/fx section :
one knob compression , reduced eq , reduced fx choices & options from X32 line ..

You should also note that only the X18 and XR18 have 18 channel USB recording capabilities, the XR16 only has 2 channel over USB.

I have the XR18 and Auria and they do connect. Make sure you buy the appropriate Camera Connection Kit so that you can plug the USB cable into the iPad.

Just to clear it up: Is it possible to control the X18 and XR18 and to record on it with only ONE iPad? The connection to control the X18 or XR18 is via WLAN and the connection to record via cable? Or what, I'm confused...

X32 rack USB diagram for show works perfect BUT only on rack x32

AIR RACK x18 usb works ONLY from auria 16 tracks out to Behringer mixer tracks i16 INputs but EACH input needs to be switched to USB instead of mike
Behringer USB matrix IN will route Auria outs to prefered choice of tracks BUT cannot OPEN both 16 analog ins and usb

Now I cannot find WHY behringer OUTS 16 USB are seen,DO open in Auria Matrix INS ....but NO SIGNAL in appears : Cannot record !!
Anybody can help ???

Works just fine for me. I record 10 channels of USB audio on a regular basis.
On the XR18 I make sure that each channel is set to "analog in" for the USB routing, so everything that comes in the XLR jack goes out on the USB port.

I also have the XR18 set up to do live mixing/routing/whatever to a mono front-of-house mix and a couple of AUX sends.

Both work at the same time, quite happily.

I don't try to output from Auria, just use it to record inbound.
