We have installed vMIX with 2 PTZoptics using SDI into a Decklink DUO card.

All looks good and working fine. Now I need an audio input from our Behringer x32 board.
The X32 has firewire with an older USB 2.0 interface. Cable length will be an issue.

I can connect the USB out from the desk into one of the USB ports on the vMIX computer, but I am not clear if I will need any additional drivers on the PC or if I really need an additional device between the sound desk and the vMIX PC..

Can anyone advise please?

Many thanks

You need ASIO drivers from Behringer for the X32

Well you can install them on another computer but it won't solve your issue with vMix using the X32 as an audio interface ! ;o)
So yes... Then your computer (not only vMix) can use the X32 for ins and outs with low latency

OK so I downloaded the Behringer ASIO driver, but it will not install.

The install process asks me to plug in the USB source. I plug in the source from the x32, making sure it is sending audio, but the driver installer stops part way through and then craps out with a failed to install note.

I checked into the the device manager and it shows only the MS drivers which will not deliver.

In the Windows audio input device config I can see that the USB (x-usb) is regitering an input, but there is not routing of that sound to any output device.

vMIX does not recognise anything other than the x-usb and some native Microsoft drivers...

Any suggestions..?

Log a support call with Behringer (Music Tribe) support and check their knowledge base. The answer is probably already there.

OK so we fixed it...

There were a number of points which may be of interest to others.


I am using an Dell G5 5090 deskside device. It came pre-loaded with some games control software which was grabbing control over all the inputs and preventing me from loading the ASIO driver.
Solution... uninstall the games software. That got me access to the drivers.

I have still been unable to make the Behringer ASIO driver work, but I am able to read USB off the back of the Behringer using x-USB and ASIO4All

It took a while, but I discovered that our sound guys had configured the Behringer with a "bespoke" config. We re-set to the vanilla recommendation from Behringer and the system started to look better.


This has been the most frustrating issue in setting up vMIX, but i am not sure how the vMIX software could overcome the control exercised by the games software... a warning note for others but it was clearly not the only issue.


Now on to NDI for lower thirds feed.

Is there any good guides on Behringer X-32 and vMix working together?

We could not find anything much to help us beyond the vMIX Audio installation guides on YouTube.
We connected using a USB cable from the USB card on the X-32 and then we used this video to set up the direct to USB
That got us working for record only using the Behringer as the mix desk and sending only to the vMIX.
When we moved back into a hybrid of live-stream with some folk in the Church we used this video for the setup of a 2 configs, 1 for streaming and 1 for front of house



Good luck
