Midas has been designing and manufacturing audio consoles since the early 1970s and are now part of The Music Group. Midas consoles are currently being used around the world by audio engineers largely in the live sound realm. Applications for these boards include Front of House (FOH) and monitor console positions.
The first digital console from Midas, the XL8, was launched at the Frankfurt Music Messe in 2006, becoming the flagship Midas console. In September 2008 at the annual PLASA tradeshow, Midas introduced the PRO6 Live Audio System, the second networked digital audio system from Midas. At the 2011 PLASA show, Midas unveiled the PRO2 and PRO2C consoles, which bring Midas digital features from the larger PRO and XL8 consoles into a more compact package and a lower price point. Midas launched the PRO1 digital console at InfoComm 2012 in Las Vegas. The PRO1 features an even smaller physical footprint and lower price point than the PRO2/PRO2C. In January 2014 at Winter NAMM in Anaheim, California, MIDAS introduced the M32.
At the Prolight & Sound event in Frankfurt, Germany, Midas introduced the “Ultimate Digital Console,” the Pro X. The console is based on a Pro9 surface and features the brand new Neutron DSP engine. The Neutron is capable of routing up to 800 channels, either point to point or in and out of the console for mixing. Moreover, one can change the routing via automation scenes. The Pro X can mix 168 input channels and provides for either 99 mixes (96 mix busses plus left, right and mono) or 103 output channels. Another 288 inputs and 294 outputs are available through AES50.
Officially distributed by ProAudio - please contact them for more information. Prosound has an exclusivity agreement with ProAudio, to represent the ProX console in Southern Africa.
