Midas expands its range of live mixing consoles and introduces at Musikmesse 2014 the PRO X.
The Midas PRO X is a 1.5m wide mixing console, but despite its compact format, it allows you to work with up to 168 inputs, 99 mix busses or 103 outputs simultaneously. It also features a Neutron DSP processor, AES50 and HyperMac audio network options that are compatible with other IP audio networks (Dante, CobraNET via the Klark Teknik DN9650 network bridge ; for a total of 288 inputs and 294 outputs in this format).
It will be possible to display 24 mono or stereo mix busses simultaneously, each one with its RGB color-coded LCD select switch and an 11-segment LED bargraph.
The PRO X is based on a new Neutron audio engine with FPGA and MIMD (Multiple Instructions, Multiple Data) advanced architecture, which allows the management of 271 simultaneous processing channels with a 94 khz / 40-bit floating point resolution.
Engineers can also prepare their set in advance, either on another Midas console, or on the Mac OS X offline editor, the file formats are cross-compatible between the consoles.
Last, note that owners of a PRO 3, PRO 6 or PRO 9 mixer can easily upgrade to PRO X ; they will only need to replace some sections of the control surface and update the Neutron DSP while conserving their remote I/O.
The Midas PRO X will be available at the end of the year, with a price announced at $41 999.
