    Hermann was gracious enough to provide incredible support for the development of our Wave synthesizer, which is now in its final stage. We spent over two years of intense development to recreate the sound of this iconic instrument.


    Here's what Hermann has to say:

    "My first Impressions of the new Blue Machine. I've had the honor and fun to play with the beta of the upcoming Behringer Wave for some time now. Putting it on top of its great-great-granddaddy, the PPG wave 2.2, which it is currently modeled after. It’s a much smaller form factor, mostly thanks to the 4-octave keyboard. I'd have preferred the original's 61-key layout, but the 49 full-size keys are OK, professionals will have a big controller or master keyboard anyway. For most purposes, 4 octaves are enough. The smaller overall size is no problem; the controller elements work quite well - they are large enough, with enough space in between, (former) PPG owners won't need much time to readjust, newcomers will find it easy to work with.
    The display is quite similar to the original, the various pages (Analog, Digital and Tuning) look and work precisely like the original. I couldn't help grinning when I saw that they included the Mod Wheel setting on the Analog page in the same way I did in my V8.3 for the original, hehe... nice touch, Behringer;-)

    The Program page is a bit different and doesn't have exactly the same feature set, while some things are implemented in a different way, like the relatively hard to use sequencer of the original. OK, back then, the complete operating system of the PPG Wave had to fit into 24k; a very tight fit. Oh yes, there's a little oscilloscope display beneath the main display. It works quite well.

    Now regarding the most important part, the big question:

    "Yeah, but does it sound like a PPG?" - I think they pretty much nailed it. I've played through all of the factory programs I know and love since many years, and it reproduced them dutifully and very much in an authentic way. Editing new sounds should be no problem to anyone already familiar with the PPG Wave, and the results match the original to a really high degree; complete identity is unreachable anyway, since each and every PPG sounds a bit differently, thanks to the analog chips and the "tuned by ear" filters. But it comes really, really close. Plus, it already got some features surpassing the original, and I'm sure more will be added over time, once the basics are fully working. The OS still needs to be fully completed, but the sound is already fully there in my opinion. Well, that's it - these are my first impressions on a new Blue Machine in my arsenal. Of course, a WaveTerm app is planned in collaboration with Behringer when the unit is ready for production. Really exciting project and I enjoy being part of this revival."

    Many of you have asked us to explain our design processes. Over the past decade we have heavily invested in "Digital Twin" simulation tools. This technology allows us to first design a product in a virtual world, before building a physical product. This advanced process improves design quality, tremendously speeds up development time and significantly reduces cost.

    Hi everyone,

    Thought I'd post this here and see if anyone is interested.

     

    I've written a HomeAssistant add-on that will sync all data coming from an X32 to an HA instance.

    Home Assistant has some fairly decent automation capabilities - triggers, scripts, etc.

    So, you should be able to setup some complex automations - useful for limited crew, or just adding one-shot configs.

    EG:

    - You can parallel faders, so change to one fader makes a change on another.

    - More complex mutegroups - unmute channels, only if fader/gain is set sanely.

    - Auto-mute/unmute when levels are beyond a threshold.

    - Auto-record to USB on channel unmute.

     

    https://github.com/MickMake/GoX32

     

    It's working well, but at this stage requires some knowledge of HA.

    Bonjour je viens de recevoir mes écouteurs mais impossible de les charger ni même de mettre la base en charge.

    Quelqu'un pourrait il m'aider?

    Hi

    My drummer has an electric VDrum kit. I don't have enough channels on the X-Air 18 to assign a channel for each pad, so I decided I could take the 4 cymbal outputs and connect them down to a single cable. Kinda like a Y cable, except instead of 2 into 1 it's 4 into 1. See drawing.

    I haven't done any kind of buffering with resistors or other components - they are basically just soldered together.

    I know I can plug my guitar into each of the 4 connectors in turn and it works fine. Not sure what will happen when I plug all 4 into the drum brain simultaneously.

    Thanks

    Phil

      KevinMaxwell Not a good idea as a mater of fact it is a very bad idea. you can take a microphone and hard wired split it into multiple inputs on a mixer but you should never take the outputs on a device (or multiple devices) and mult them together you could blowup the outputs of the V-Drums because the output electronics would be fighting each other.

      But most V-Drums allow you to internally mix inputs like all of the cymbals to one output on the V-Drum brain. Which one do you have?

    Hi,

    I have a solo act, where I try to do everything at once, using multiple instruments, and generally post stream live as well as play in front of live crowds.

     

    I'm looking for entry level, expandable Analog to Digital XLR & 1/4" interfaces, 8 channel or greater, that isn't extremely expensive that I can also utilize through common interfaces such as OBS Studio...I'm not sure if I need an Ableton or another type of software, but wanted to get started with some recommendations.

    (I have a 6 channel USB mixer that currently serves me well, to pick up the pro audio and send it over to OBS.

    Thanks

    Karl

    I'm trying to buy a 'genuine part' replacement X32 (full size) soft cover as the one that came with it has deteriorated.

     

    I went to Behringer's site and the Spare Parts section only offers 'Go To Care Portal' which is this site and no obvious means of buying any parts. Am I missing something?
