Normally, consoles focus on input numbers assigned to channels and auxes. Wing is offering a substantially different perspective by focusing on the Source as the reason for any mixing, whether a bass drum signal or the lead vocal. Inputs are therefore given more properties than just a number. Sources can be in mono, stereo or mid-side mode and can own headamp parameters like gain and phantom power with specific source mute and metering. They can also be given a color, icon, name and several tags for grouping and filtering purposes. All of this defines a Source on Wing, before channels are used for processing or mixing. The beauty of this is that you can label Sources using the Wing Co-Pilot app while patching on stage and whether the signal is patched to a channel, to SD recording or to any other output, you will always see and refer to that Source.
All 48 input channels and 28 bus mixes can be used for mono, stereo or mid-side sources. Assigning a stereo source to any channel automatically renders the channel stereo; its stereo imager stage provides control over width from 150% stereo down to mono. Wing does not need a reboot to apply any mode changes: channel, bus and subgroup configuration can be changed any time on the fly.
Legacy built into every channel
Besides the excellent default Wing EQs and dynamics, all channels and buses feature plug-ins for gates, compressors and equalizers, including high-end simulations modeled after famous hardware such as Pultec EQ, SSL Bus Compressor and Gate/Expander, SPL Transient Designer, Neve EQ, Compressor and Gate, Focusrite ISA and D3, DBX160, LA-2A, 1176, Elysia mPressor and Empirical Labs Distressor.
Wing's innovative channel editing section is designed from the ground up for immediate channel status overview. It allows working on the selected channel's processing even when the main display is used for something completely unrelated. Touch-sensitive rotary controls allow the most relevant information to be displayed quickly and easily.
A central section offers user-assignable controls including 4 rotary encoders and 20 buttons with 2 LCDs and allows you to decide which functions you'd like to have within your reach. A big rotary wheel offers fine adjustments of up to 8 user parameters or can be used for DAW remote control via USB MIDI. The control configuration also includes pre-defined functionality for USB and SD card recorder transport, show control and mute groups.
Perfect balance and ultimate tone shaping
Wing input channels feature low cut and high cut filters, tilt EQ, all pass or Behringer's Sound Maxer in addition to the 6-band parametric EQ. All buses, matrices and mains feature an 8-band parametric EQ. Alternatively, Wing offers 8 meticulous emulations of famous hardware equalizers for use on each and every channel whenever you need that 'special vibe' on your signals.
The Wing Premium FX rack boasts 8 true stereo processors including spectacular emulations of some of the industry's most revered reverbs, including TC Electronic VSS3 algorithms and Lexicon, Quantec and EMT emulations. There are fantastic delays, voice doubling, chromatic pitch correction, tape saturation and much more.
Another set of 8 true stereo processors provides a wide array of modulation, equalization, dynamics and non-linear effects, and even four iconic guitar amplifiers with cabinet simulations. If push comes to shove, a guitarist can just DI his guitar or pedals straight into the stage box, especially useful on quiet stages or in houses of worship.
With support for 374 inputs and 374 outputs, a lot of digital connectivity is required. Wing provides 3 AES50 SuperMAC audio networking ports for connecting digital stage boxes or sharing up to 144 input and 144 output streams with other mixing consoles. There are 48×48 channels of USB audio and another 64×64 channels of audio over IP (AoIP module optional, sold separately) plus AES/EBU stereo I/O. Wing's expansion card slot comes populated with the Wing Live SD recording card and accommodates optional cards for various standards such as ADAT, MADI, DANTE and WSG, offering another 64×64 channels of audio in/out. The Klark Teknik StageCONNECT interface allows transmission of 32 channels of 24-bit audio with sub-millisecond latency together with control data and 18W of power over a single standard microphone cable. Given its flexibility and ease of use, this may be the future of XLR!
Wing has 8 original Midas Pro-Series microphone pre amps and 8 XLR outputs for both live and studio environments. 8×8 TRS auxiliary line ins and outs help bring in signals from media players or computers. If that's not enough local analog I/O, the StageCONNECT interface connects to breakout boxes with up to 32 channels of input and output, allowing you to connect the console to the side rack over a single XLR microphone or DMX cable.
Automixing with 2 groups of gain sharing is available on any 16 input channels. The dependable and fast algorithm automatically tracks which microphone is receiving the highest levels and increases its channel gain while reducing the sum of gain for all other channels in the same group. The ambient noise level will remain constantly low while intelligibility and gain before feedback are increased considerably. Automixing is ideal for corporate events, panel discussions, houses of worship or broadcast applications with several speakers.
MIDI in/out plus additional 2×2 GPIO provide an interface for console event triggers and external show control.
Wing has 40-bit floating point processing at 48 or 44.1 kHz with 1ms round trip latency.
Dual solo/monitor buses per channel are available for monitoring over phones, in-ear monitors, floor wedges and studio monitor speakers.
RC and OSC
Networked remote control supports binary and OSC communication and allows console control from a distance. This is open to 3rd party application development in addition to Behringer's Wing Co-Pilot cross-platform app.
