X32 digital mixer output delay

We're looking to purchase a Behringer X32, possibly the rack mount version or the compact to use in our portable broadcast setup.  We need a mixer that can add a delay to the audio before it gets sent to our audio embedders.  Without adding a delay, when audio gets embedded into the SDI video signal with our embedders, there is an issue where the audio is about 5 frames (approximately 100-200ms) ahead of the video and we are having lip-sync issues.

What is the maximum output delay that can be set in the X32 in terms of milliseconds?

Hello Aung, welcome to the community.

 

Each output can be delayed up to 500ms. Each channel can also have up to 500ms delay applied to the input.

 

The X32 Rack would be a very good choice for a portable setup. It is a powerful mixer in a compact form and can be controlled from a PC, tablet or X-Touch controller.

Re: X32 digital mixer output delay

Hi RexBeckett, thanks for answering my inquiry. Just one more question for the sake of clarification.

The X32 Rack has 16 XLR inputs and 8 XLR outputs.  Can we map 1 input to 1 output individually?  The reason for this, in our live streaming setup sometimes we will be live streaming multiple channels of audio (e.g. channel 1 English, channel 2 French, etc. or like channel 1 Speakers, channel 2 commentary, etc.)

At maximum, we will have 8 audio channels for 8 languages.  So we just need to map XLR input 1 to XLR out 1, XLR in 2 to XLR out 2, XLR in 3 to XLR out 3, etc. without mixing any of the audio inputs.

Yes it is easy to achieve. You can route the post-fader direct output of each required channel to an XLR output.
