Bridges the Gap Between Band, FOH, and Audience

Packed with ultra-fast, rock-solid performance, the Behringer S32 32-channel digital snake system bridges the gap between your band, your FOH engineer, and your audience. With the S32, you get 32 remote-controllable Midas-designed preamps and 16 analog, servo-balanced XLR returns at the stage end, and it's all piped through a single, convenient Cat 5e cable, thanks to integrated SuperMac technology from Klark Teknik. In other words: no more bulky analog snake! So step up to the digital age — order your Behringer S32 32-channel digital snake system from Sweetwater today!

AES50 networking capability provides compatibility with many digital mixers

When Behringer first developed their S32 digital snake system, they intended it to go hand-in-hand with their powerful X32 digital mixing system. But limiting such a convenient and affordable digital snake to the X32 alone would have been a shame, which is why Behringer designed it around the strict guidelines established by Klark Teknik. The result is an affordable digital snake that's completely compatible with any digital console that sports an AES50 digital Ethernet connection. So if you're running a Midas or Behringer digital mixing board, if it's got an AES50 Ethernet port on it, if you've got an S32 digital snake, you're never more than a single connection away from your stage box.

Remote-controllable preamps make setup fast, easy, and painless

Even if you try to get a jog in every day, no one likes having to run up to the stage every time you have to make an adjustment to your stage box. Thanks to the Behringer S32 digital snake system's remote-controllable preamp design, those back-and-forth cross-venue dashes are a thing of the past. Using the Klark Teknik SuperMAC protocol, your S32 will show up in your digital mixer's OS, giving you the control you need over your pres, right from the front of house position. And by the way, these preamps are the exact same high-quality Midas-designed preamps found in the X32 console, so you know you're getting quality sound with low noise and tons of headroom.

Total integration with Behringer's P-16 personal monitoring system

Streamlined, affordable, and super-easy-to-use, everyone's raving about Behringer's Powerplay P16 personal monitoring systems. When you add a Behringer S32 digital snake system to your PA rig, you're not just getting a great set of remote-controllable preamps and ditching tons of bulky cable, you're ready to add an advanced personal monitoring system directly inline with the rig you already have. That's because your S32 digital snake comes equipped with Ultranet connectivity, which provides your Powerplay P16-M monitor controllers with a digital split straight from the stage box.

I use the X32 in my recording studio and really wanted 32 outputs for mixing on my Soundcraft console. I added an S32 to give the second group of 16 outputs (from the card). Now I have an S32 and S16 hanging on my AES A bus and an X32r and S16 on my AES B bus, I'm only 16 inputs away from actually maxing out the 96 input ability of the X32. The X32 universe really changed my studio. Now my drum room has an S16 for inputs, my keyboard room has an X32r and my speaker/reamp room has its own S16 for mic inputs. The digital networking works perfectly and I've never been happier with the sound I'm getting. Music-group tech support is second to none. I needed some help setting up my network, I called M-G tech hotline, had a human on the phone in under 2-minutes, had my working solution in under 5-total minutes including dialing the phone and navigating through voice mail, pretty amazing from the company who has sold the most digital mixers of anyone. The S32 is ridiculously easy to connect and use, provides identical inputs and outputs to the flagship X32 mixer in a 3U rack mount package. S W E E T ! ! ! Good music to all!

So Very Helpful!

Had some noise in my system. I finally decided it was in my 250 analog snake. Purchased this to direct connect with my X32 and eliminate my old snake. I was so easy and since I had already dropped an RJ45 cable for my some P16's, it was just plug and play. Also, I was then able to run the P16's directly from S32. No problem. The only struggle was to understand the X32 settings for running local and AES connections. This can easily be configured. The caveat is that groups are set rather than individual channels for this configuration. So, I had to move my inputs around to make it work. By the way, the noise is gone now and I'm very happy with the new set up

Time saver

In short. Light, Versatile, Value-packed Digital Snake System.
