SKU: Midas Pro 2-CC-IP
$ 28,000.00

The ground breaking PRO2 features 64 simultaneous input channels with 8 award-winning MIDAS Microphone Preamplifiers and 27 time-aligned and phase-coherent mix buses. Like all PRO Series consoles, the PRO2 features managed latency and 40 bit floating point processing precision. Designed for use in high-profile live sound applications, the PRO2 sets a new standard of performance and portability in a compact digital console form factor.

AES50 audio networking technology allows the PRO2 to dynamically assign up to 156 inputs and 164 outputs at 96 kHz sample rate to any of its input channels and bus outputs on a scene-by-scene basis. This high level of connectivity, coupled with the large channel and bus counts, makes the PRO2C equally at home in theatres and clubs as it is in live concert touring, outside broadcast and music festivals.

Digital Audio Networking

SuperMAC (AES50-Compliant) digital audio networking technology from KLARK TEKNIK simultaneously provides high channel counts, ultra low and deterministic latencies, sample-synchronous and phase-aligned networked clock distribution, error detection and correction, network redundancy, and ease of deployment and use – to meet the demanding requirements of live concert touring.

PRO2C is compatible with all MIDAS PRO Series digital I/O units, as well as with any other 96 kHz-enabled AES50-equipped devices. Multiple PRO Series consoles can be connected together to create either larger mixing systems, or multiple discrete mixing consoles can share a common resource of networked and distributed I/O interfaces.

Advanced Navigation Flexibility

PRO2C incorporates new and innovative methods of channel and mix bay navigation: FLIP Navigation, FX Navigation, GEQ Navigation, and MCA Navigation. These four options allow an engineer to easily and efficiently mix a large number of inputs on a compact control surface. PRO2 also features the ability to display and control any output bus on the input control bay area. This navigation flexibility makes working with the console as simple as requirements dictate, or as deep and complex as a user desires. PRO2's new output section, which features 24 direct bus selection switches that provide immediate access to up to 24 stereo pairs of output mix buses, also supports the new navigation modes.

  • When in FLIP navigation mode, and the FLIP button is engaged, selecting an output flips the input faders to become the input channel send levels to the selected output. If the Collapsed Flip (Hide Unassigned Channels) preference is ticked, then the console will only populate with the input channels that are assigned to the selected output, otherwise all channels will be displayed.
  • When the FX navigation button is engaged, selecting an output which is patched to an internal effects processor, this mode will deploy that effects processor on the display screen and map the ASSIGNABLE CONTROLS to the effects processor. If FADER FLIP is also engaged, the input channel faders will become the contributions to the effects processor. If COLLAPSED FLIP (Hide Unassigned Channels) preference is selected, the operator will only be presented with input channels that are sending to that effects processor.
  • When the GEQ navigation button is engaged, selecting an output which has a graphic equaliser (GEQ) assigned, this mode will present the GEQ on the VCA faders. Scrolling the VCA faders left and right will provide access to all 31 GEQ faders. If FADER FLIP is also engaged, the input channel faders will become the contributions to the selected mix. If COLLAPSED FLIP (Hide Unassigned Channels) preference is selected, the operator will only be presented with input channels which are sending to that mix.
  • If the MCA navigation button is engaged, when an output (mix) is selected, the MCA faders for that output will be deployed on the VCA fader bank. When MCA navigation is engaged, the MCA faders control the contributions of their members only to the currently selected bus. This is a unique and powerful mixing tool, which puts MIDAS in a class of its own for innovation and usability.

Integrated Effects Processors and Graphic Equalisers

The PRO2C can simultaneously provide up to 6 multi-channel digital signal processing engines for a wide choice of virtual effect devices, which range from dual-mono delay units, stereo modulation and numerous diverse reverberation simulations, multi-band compression, dynamic EQ and multi-channel dual-function dynamics processing. Up to 28 1⁄3 octave KLARK TEKNIK DN370 Graphic Equalisers (GEQs) are provided, which can be patched into any output.

PRO2C provides comprehensive automatic latency management of all internal routing and processing latency – and also includes compensation for external analogue inserts. All audio samples are synchronised before summing, resulting in absolute phase coherence at the outputs, without the comb filtering effects of many of its Competitor’s products that often result in specific frequencies being cancelled out completely.

All effects processors and GEQs are custom-designed to function within this automatic latency compensation system. This ensures a phase-coherent, sample-accurate mix regardless of whether the devices are used as channel inserts or on auxiliary buses.

MIDAS PRO Fader

Not satisfied with the existing motorised fader choices in the marketplace, MIDAS created the PRO FADER, rated for up to a million cycles – three times that of other leading manufacturers - and providing high linearity, robustness, and smooth feel during operation. This decision yielded many other benefits, including total quality control over the manufacturing process and lower costs that could be passed on to customers.

As a digital console manufacturer, MIDAS has a perspective on the actual application of motor faders that a component manufacturer would not have. The multi-disciplinary development project combined mechanical design, electronic hardware and software optimisation with a rigorous testing programme and an investment in material science to produce the best possible performance in actual operation in MIDAS PRO Series consoles. Semi-precious metals are used for the wiper fingers for their hard-wearing properties, and precision resistive tracks were created that off er highly linear positional accuracy, coupled with long-term durability and even response in use.

Highest Quality Display Screen

The PRO2 features a 15" full colour daylight-viewable TFT display for use in all environments, both inside and outdoors. The display provides visual feedback for the entire system, pressing the HOME key (just to the left of the assignable controls) instantly navigates to the console overview page, which keeps all vital information (all metering, all fader positions, mutes and solos) in view at all times.

Digital Precision, Analogue Response

The oversampled digital signal processing algorithms, combined with the fully interpolated and touch sensitive user controls, result in the smooth continuous response and immediacy of working on an analogue console. Parameter adjustment becomes fast and easy and the continuous phase shift of a swept frequency control is heard without the quantisation artefacts exhibited by competing digital consoles.

Wireless Remote Control

Delivering unprecedented control and mobility, the MIXTENDER App for iPad* combines control of key functions with the highly responsive system metering, allowing users to take control of PRO2 from an iPad anywhere in a venue. Support for multiple simultaneous iPads allows FOH and monitor engineers to work collaboratively, enhancing productivity and communication, as well as saving valuable time during set-up.

The MIXTENDER App for iPad is available as a free download from the Apple App Store.

Auto-Ranging Universal Switch-Mode Power Supplies

PRO2 features dual-redundant power supplies, which are interchangeable with those in PRO1 and PRO2, and are auto-voltage sensing for use on a worldwide basis and provide seamless switchover in the unlikely event of a loss of one power supply.

Touring Grade Road Case (Optional)

Rugged and built to last, the PRO2 Touring Pack includes a PRO2-RC Road Case, constructed from rigid marine grade plywood and durable aluminium extrusions. Composite density foam provides internal support and superior protection in transit, night after night, city after city.
