Is the Behringer WING Volunteer Friendly? Here's what our Church Volunteers Said 👀

Uncategorized Apr 28, 2023


In church Facebook groups and YouTube videos, I frequently see comments about the Behringer WING not being volunteer-friendly. Personally, I think it is, but I wanted to hear directly from our church volunteers. So, I asked them about their experiences with the Behringer WING. Here’s what they had to say.


Many people question whether the Behringer WING is suitable for volunteers, especially those with limited technical background. To get a clearer picture, I interviewed several of our church volunteers who regularly use the WING. Their feedback provides valuable insights into the user-friendliness of this audio mixing console.

Volunteer Experiences

Years of Mixing Experience

I started by asking our volunteers about their years of experience with audio mixing. Most of them had been mixing for a couple of years, primarily using our previous board, the X32, before transitioning to the WING.

Comfort Level with the WING

Despite initial skepticism, our volunteers generally found the WING more user-friendly than expected. One volunteer with nine years of experience said they felt more confident using the WING than the X32 after a few sessions. Another volunteer with limited experience mentioned that the WING was easier to use than they anticipated.

Touchscreen Feature

One of the standout features of the WING is its large touchscreen. Volunteers appreciated the ability to use their fingers to control EQ settings and other adjustments directly on the screen. This feature made the console feel more modern and intuitive.

Customization and Flexibility

The WING allows users to customize the layout, which volunteers found incredibly useful. This customization made it easier for them to access frequently used channels and settings quickly. The ability to create user groups tailored to individual preferences was also a big plus.

Learning Curve

Initially, the WING’s complexity was intimidating. However, after a few sessions, volunteers found it much easier to navigate. The visual feedback and touchscreen controls contributed significantly to reducing the learning curve.

Favorite Features

Visual Feedback

Volunteers loved the visual feedback provided by the WING. The ability to see EQ changes and other adjustments in real-time made it easier to fine-tune settings. This visual representation helped volunteers, especially those less experienced, understand the impact of their adjustments better.

Touchscreen and Interface

The touchscreen was a favorite feature among all volunteers. It allowed for quick and precise adjustments, making the overall mixing experience smoother and more enjoyable.


Initial Setup and Routing

One common concern was the complexity of initial setup and routing. While regular use was straightforward, setting up the console from scratch required a deeper understanding. Volunteers felt that with some guidance and practice, they could handle this aspect better.

Lack of Audio Waveform in EQ

Some volunteers missed the audio waveform display when adjusting EQ settings, a feature they found helpful on the X32. This made it a bit challenging to identify which frequencies needed adjustment purely by ear.

Final Thoughts

After hearing from our volunteers, it’s clear that the Behringer WING is indeed volunteer-friendly, provided there’s a willingness to learn. The console’s intuitive touchscreen, customizable layout, and visual feedback make it accessible for both new and experienced users. While the initial setup can be complex, regular use is straightforward, and the learning curve is manageable.

Overall, our volunteers are happy with the WING and appreciate the enhanced capabilities it brings to our church services. It offers room for growth, allowing users to start with basic functions and gradually explore more advanced features as they gain confidence.

If you're considering the Behringer WING for your church, I hope this feedback helps in your decision-making process. Feel free to share this article with others who might find it useful, and if you have any questions or topics you'd like our volunteers to weigh in on, let me know!
