U-FLYstudio's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Midas XL42
Pr amp two channels with 4 band EQ Settings, adjustable high pass filter, 48V, insert on / off, mute, phase reverse, pad, att.

equivalent of two strips Midas XL4, the connector is XLR and inserts are symtriques (bantam), there is a knob for output level per channel Pan li a,

This pre amp may indeed be linked with other XL42, XL88 to one to allow a number of choice after the config.


It is on the low band and the band selector shelve an acute or bell to configure the paramtrage of these two curves, switch on / off of Eq, like all paramtriques equalizer can influence the choice frequency drives, its bandwidth and amplification or rduction.
In short, an indispensable tool for many situations, eg live ds that sagit of wireless microphones to work in hazardous conditions, in making its strophonique to a DAT or a digital audio interface in the studio, given the quality of pr micro amp etc ...

two small BMOL all of the same,
- No possibility of linker both channels EQ and DI no function to grate level instrument type guitar, bass, keyboard ...
- No possibility of options numrique


An interesting phylosophy trs trs combines a pre amp soft dynamic, with a wide range of amplification, combines qualisation surgery while remaining extremely musical


One of the best machines today to deal effectively with any sound source ncessitant a rglage prcis and brutal in terms of filtering.
A Pr amp extremely smooth and quiet.
IDAL companion console to numriques advantages of a little cheap

it's just a shame that the sound of the EQ to be as surgical and almost certainly a bit of my personality compar ISA 430MKII and my Amek Neve DMCL, while just over two couillu the midas !!!!!! The pre amp it, trs is beautiful!

Midas XL42
- What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)
- What are the effects or types of effects available?
- What is the connection?
- Is this a rack or rack-mount model?

midasconsoles confers site (if it's pot!)


- The general configuration is it simple?
Yes, very. I used it on a slice line input, level 0 for a bass drum and one voice. Initially my sub (SB218) had difficulty moving (lack of obvious increase) with the entrance of the behringer. after a few straps and a power supply .... There was a change of the ear! ! !


- The sound of your instruments or microphones is properly reproduced?
quite I would say: as ever with the DDX3216

The preamp is it clear or does it brings a stain?
I can not say it does nothing, except it does it do? (Probably not a few of Db +).


I only used 2 times, as it is .... and I agree very well.
config simple and effective

the -:
memories of a few buttons too small for my big fingers, m'enfin

I reused the end of March 2007. I come to tell you more
