Behringer Wing Line grab  ·  Source: Behringer

Video number 4 gives us the clearest idea yet of what this thing is that they’ve taken 30 years to make. And is “WING” it or are there more letters to come?

WING

So it’s not really looking like a synthesizer then. Does this mean I’m going to have to hand this curious coverage over to one of my pro-audio colleagues? Quite possibly, let’s check it out.

Lot’s of people guessed that it had something to do with a touch-screen. There are a lot of sound mixing and studio-style elements in play here. There are effect plug-ins, EQ but also in-built recording facilities. There seem to be complex routing opportunities like some kind of front-of-house console while also giving the impression of potential DAW capability.

But there was one glimpse in particular that grabbed my attention and that’s this frame here:

Behringer Wing Line grab

It appears to be a signal selection panel where you have USB Audio, Dante, AES50 but also the highlighted box says “WING LINE”. Is that just the input to the WING device or is it some kind of new audio protocol?

So it’s looking like some kind of touch-screen based mixing console like a new generation of mixer from their Midas team. Shame – I wanted another synth.

    Yep, as I said before, it is a studio grade console (or most probably live show mixing console) based entirely on touch screen. Something like Waves Superrack.
    A next gen X series mixers that have a huge touchscreen instead of physical controls.
    Cool!

    It’s Behringer’s supposed successor to the X32, based on large touchscreen design like Slate Raven.

  3. dang, yeah i wanted a new drum machine or something haha

    Its WINGLIVE, see that on other screen from video

    I believe that says Wing Live. Live is what they call the SD card recorder expansion card in the X/M32 range. I assume that the spot in the interface is reserved for whatever expansion card is present in what is almost certainly a live mixing console/X32 replacement.
