The wait is over. Well, almost. Following a much publicized product launch, the X32 successor in all its glory is now up for pre-order at Thomann. With first stock scheduled for 2 to 3 weeks from now, it won’t be long before you’ll be able to get your hands on the fancy digital mixer. With 16 buses , four main outs and eight aux , a matrix with eight inputs, and tons of effects courtesy of Behringer-owned TC (among others), the Wing is indeed a promising product at a price that seems smart.
