Midas has launched the VeniceF-16R, a 16-channel rack mount variant of its new ‘digi-log’ mixing console, the VeniceF.
The VeniceF-16R can be seen on Stand 1-F19 at PLASA 2011.
Designed by Alex Cooper, the VeniceF-16R comes with FireWire multi-channel digital audio interface, the functionality and sound of the Midas XL3 EQ and filter section, Midas mic preamps, 100mm faders, increased channel and input count, a dual 7x2 matrix and a reorganised master section layout. It is also bundled with Propellerhead recording and processing trial software.
The VeniceF-16R’s 16x16 FireWire capability adds 16 channels of multitrack recording and playback using suitable FireWire-equipped computers, without the need for additional interfaces. This also offers the possibility of virtual soundchecking, and allows third-party plug-ins to be run as channel inserts and third-party effects routed via aux sends and returns. Inputs, groups, auxes, matrixes and masters can be routed to the FireWire interface.
The software bundle includes a 60-day trial version of Propellerhead’s Record software (due to be superceded by Reason in the near future) and a Midas ASIO driver for PC and Mac. Record offers both multitrack record/edit/replay software and signal processing modules, including dynamics and reverbs which can be inserted into the VeniceF signal paths.
VeniceF-16R is presented in a new frame design and livery reminiscent of the Heritage Series, according to Midas.
