Breaking news: Behringer CA16

by Chris Randall

In a stunning development, Behringer, a world leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of professional audio and musical instrument products, today announced the imminent availability of the CA-16 High Precision Professional Tube-Driven Ass, an ultimate multi-function ass-modelling workstation. Each CA-16 is is equipped with a hand-selected 12AX7 vacuum tube with UTC technology for exceptional warmth, lowest noise and signal integrity.

In addition, the CA-16 features ultra-flexible ass modeling technology that allows the user to quickly optimize recordings and choose between 16 different open cans of analog ass. The CA-16 also features direct injection and cheek-size functionality, to allow the user to fully shape the ass to suit the project at hand. The CA-16 features BEHRINGER?s sophisticated output limiter that enhances signal distortion, while a dedicated low cut filter eliminates unwanted flatulance.

The CA-16 will be available Q1 of 2006, for an MSRP of $19.99. Like all Behringer cans of ass, this product will come pre-opened at the factory.

you mean RTASS, don't ya parasitk?

I am actually tempted to buy 2 behringer products:

the 4 channel headphone amp HA 4700, mainly as it has XLR in AND thru, so that I can use a stereo aux send on my Studer console for cue when tracking and as an fx send when mixing without repatching. I think it's the HA-4700.

Also, their 4 channel rackmout transformer DI box, I forgot the name.

Very Bad Idea? If anyone's used these, please comment. THanks.

"Very Bad Idea? If anyone's used these, please comment. THanks."

very very bad idea.

my honest opinion on behringer- ten years ago- before "mixing in the box" and all that- behringer products were a cheap (in all aspects) alternative to just about everything you would find in "THE STUDIO" (OOOH!!!)

mixers, compressors, EQ- behringer made it- and CHEAP!

"WOW! i can have a full studio now!!!"

...and the name caught on. they kept making everything AND it was the least expensive thing in musicians friend- everyone could afford them. every tascam/fostex 4-track guy had a behringer something or another in his setup. there was no internet, no tape-op, no one to tell us what was what... it was all trial and error and most of us tried them out.

it's the same thing right now- any 16 year old with cakewalk and a job is looking for some cheap gear, and behringer is the cheapest on the market- the new fire wire thing is the perfect example of this.

if you can afford the next step up, do it- you will be SO much happier in the long run. if you can't and you REALLY need it then i guess go for it...

i personally (as a former entry level behringer user) would urge you to weigh your options first and explore every possible avenue.

Old thread I know, (-and- I'm backtracking) but, has anyone seen/used or have an opinion of this?

Fireface 800

I mean, it looks like a pretty sexy little piece of interface. I fear making such a hefty purchase with no brand familiarity or additional information though.
