Midas has launched the latest addition to its PRO Series of digital consoles, the Midas PRO1 live audio system, at a pre-InfoComm event held in Las Vegas yesterday evening. The PRO1 features an all-new lightweight aluminium frame and is the first stand-alone Midas digital console.
The PRO1 is said to be easy to configure and operate; it is compatible with the complete range of Midas digital consoles and allows existing show files to be loaded and worked on straight away.
Other notable features include 24 mic/line inputs with Midas mic preamps; 48 simultaneous input processing channels; 24 analogue outputs (including two stereo local monitor outputs); 3 AES3 outputs; and 2 AES3 inputs. Midas brand development manager Richard Ferriday commented: “The PRO1 opens new territory for Midas on a number of different levels. New manufacturing materials and techniques, the first stand-alone Midas digital console, with comprehensive I/O on the back, and a previously undreamt-of price point. The PRO1 will be accessible to freelance engineers, small music venues, anyone who actually cares about audio quality, reliability and portability.”
