SINGAPORE: Behringer Holdings Ltd has announced details of a "strategic alliance" with XT Software that will see the latter's energyXT DAW solution bundled with selected Behringer products, beginning with the USB-equipped XENYX mixers. Established as recently as 2006, XT Software is based in Norway's Oslo Innovation Center and is focused on the development of community-based music software, writes David Davies.

The version of energyXT2 for Behringer products, energyXT2 Compact Edition, is said to load in under two seconds and is not locked to a single computer. The program is tightly coded (2MB), runs on all operating systems and can be transferred between computers via any mobile media. The bundle is expected to begin shipping with various Behringer products later this month.

"I'm really excited about the energyXT2 recording software," Behringer recording product specialist Joe Sanborn tells PSN-e. "With the right feature set and robust performance, it perfectly fills the needs of amateur and professional recording artists alike."

"We at XT Software are very excited about our partnership with Behringer. By bundling energyXT2 with Behringer products, we will bring a new level of product awareness to hardware-savvy musicians around the globe," said XT Software CEO Jorgen Aase.

The initial bundling will be with Behringer's USB-equipped XENYX mixers. Models include the 2442FX, 2222FX, 1832FX, 1622FX, 1222FX, 1204FX and 1204 mixers.
