About the Midas PRO1

This superb industry stalwart console handles 48 input channels with 24 excellent Midas preamps. Packed into a compact, aluminium frame, this mixer is compact enough for portable use and fits well into many live sound applications ranging from music videos to live gigs, small productions and conferences. 

The PRO1 is technically competent courtesy of its time-aligned mix busses, 40-bit floating point processing and AES50 audio networking. In fact, some 172 inputs can be dynamically assigned to the console with 172 outputs at 96kHz. Superb connectivity makes this console fit for use in cutting-edge modern setups where it delivers performance beyond its compact size. 


The MIDAS Mic Preamplifier

MIDAS preamps are some of the best in the industry. With some four decades of R&D under their belts, MIDAS have been delivering quality products for a long time and their pre-amps are renowned for warmth and detail. This makes your live audio sound better. 

Not only are MIDAS desks warm and detailed, but they also provide subtle ambience and quality sound imaging to give presence to even the quietest instruments. Transparent with low noise and superb quality are hallmarks of MIDAS’ preamp design. 


MIDAS Audio Networking

The MIDAS PRO1 features SuperMAC (AES50-Compliant) networking technology from Klark Teknik. It’s compatible with all MIDAS PRO I/O units and many other 96 kHz AES50 devices. Multiple consoles can also be connected together for large-scale mixing applications, though it might be more sensible to simply use one of our other larger desks.

What are mixing desks?

A mixing desk is a piece of audio equipment that allows the user to control the level, pan and other properties of multiple audio signals. The signals can be from different sources, such as microphones, instruments or playback devices. The mixing desk then combines the signals and outputs them to an amplifier or recording device.

Mixing desks come in a variety of different sizes, from small units that are designed for home studios, to large-scale desks that are used in professional studios and live venues. The number of channels (inputs and outputs) and the features offered will vary depending on the model. Some mixing desks also include effects units, such as reverb or delay, which can be applied to the audio signals.

Mixing desks are an essential piece of equipment for any studio or live setup that uses multiple audio sources. They provide the user with a high degree of control over the sound, and allow for a wide range of creative possibilities.
