The X32 RACK console provides various utilities that make the console much easier and more fun to use, while providing a great deal of flexibility and power. Examples Include:

Channel Customization: Various input and output channels can have custom colors, names, and icons assigned to them. Using these functions, you will always know exactly what source and destination is tied to the channel, with no need for board tape and sharpie pens. For example, an input channel could be labeled “kick drum” while the channel for a mix output could be labeled “Joey’s monitor”.

  • Press the Setup button and page over to the ‘scribble strip’ tab.
  • Use the 1st encoder to select a channel to be edited, then choose a color, icon and name.

Copy/Paste: The X32 RACK also provides a “copy and paste” function that allows you to take settings you have configured for one channel, and copy those settings to another channel.

  • Navigate to a channel whose settings you want to copy using the Channel Select knob.
  • Press the HOME button, then the UTILITY button.
  • Press the 5th encoder to copy all settings of the selected channel into the copy buffer.
  • Navigate to the channel that the copied settings will be pasted into.
  • Adjust the first encoder to select which aspects of the channel you wish to copy from the source channel (i.e. the one in the paste buffer).
  • Press the 6th encoder to “paste” the copied settings into the currently selected channel.


Store / Load Presets: The X32 RACK allows you to save and load presets of channel settings, as well as settings made in the internal effects processor. These stored settings can later be recalled as needed. Since the stored files can also be stored and recalled to an attached USB drive, this means that you can save your favorite channel settings and effects on one console, and then quickly and easily recall and use them on a completely different X32 console.

  • Navigate to a channel whose settings you wish to store using the Channel Select knob.
  • Press the HOME button, then the UTILITY button.
  • Press the 3rd encoder to store all settings of the selected channel. A new screen will appear where you can apply a custom name to the saved preset.
  • To load a preset from the UTILITIES screen, adjust the first encoder to select which aspects of the selected channel you wish to recall, then press the 2nd encoder. A confirmation screen will pop-up, asking you to confirm you wish to load a preset to the currently selected channel. Use the page left/right buttons to confirm or cancel.
  • Press the LIBRARY button to go straight to the “libraries” screen, where you can scroll through a list of stored preset libraries.
  • Use the 5th and 6th encoders to import/export presets to/from an attached USB drive.
