Midas PRO9 overview

  • 1Description

The installation package version of the MIDAS PRO9 Live Audio Mixing System is designed for live sound reinforcement such as in concert venues, theaters, houses of worship, broadcast, tours, and more. The system requires the Pro9 version of the MIDAS DL371 modular, upgradeable, remote DSP processing engine (sold separately) connected via Cat 5e cabling to a networked system of up to 11 discrete I/O devices depending on the user's specific I/O requirements. An redundant N+1 processing card can be added to the DL371 DSP engine as a backup, in the event that a card within the 371 fails.

The system is designed to be paired with both the DL351 and a DL451 modular stage boxes (sold separately) that feature 56 and 24 MIDAS designed microphone preamps respectively as well as eight analog XLR outputs in each stage box's default configuration.

Additional I/O can also be connected using any of the MIDAS DL series digital I/O units as well as the console's three rear panel card slots that can house any combination of MIDAS DL series I/O cards.

The flexibility of the system allows for it to be quickly reconfigured with whatever connections are required. Redundant power supplies are included with every system as part of the system's failure-tolerant architecture.

Additionally, the console features 8 auxiliary returns, all with 4-band parametric EQ and insert points. The auxiliary returns may be used as returns using the unit's eight internal multi-channel FX processors or as additional microphone input channels.

The console's 88 input channels may be routed to 35 phase coherent mix busses which comprise 16 user-configurable buses (as mixes, subgroups, or mix minus groups) and eight matrix buses. The matrix busses can receive their sources from inputs or groups which allows them to be used as eight additional auxiliary (monitor mix and fx sends) for a total of 32 mixes (plus L, R & Mono) for monitor mixing. All buses can be linked as stereo pairs, except the mono bus. As with other MIDAS digital consoles, the audio paths can be routed to multiple destinations and the console format can be reconfigured live on a scene-by-scene basis.

Increased flexibility can be added to the system by utilizing a Klark Teknik DN9650 Network Bridge digital format converter offering MADI and Dante connectivity.

The standard PRO9 live audio system is modular, allowing for some variations in physical placement and system size. This version of the control console is designed for install applications and arrives in a shipping crate.

  • VCA and POP Groups encourage the development of a mental picture, or "Mind Map", of the whole system
  • Selecting a VCA or POP group will bring all of the members of that group to you, rather than you having to go looking for them
  • Input channels can be viewed either by scrolling the input faders or by pressing the EXTEND button, which will populate the VCA faders with additional members of that POP group

    Analog Potentiometers
    Uses analog potentiometers as opposed to mechanical encoders to access the processing algorithms
    Display Screens
    Features five high-resolution displays that remain visible even in direct sunlight to provide visual feedback for channel strips, system information, 3rd party applications
    Detail Panel Area
    Features a vertically-oriented channel strip layout with configurable controls and multicolor LCD channel select buttons
    Microphone Preamplifiers
    Uses discrete component design with a warmth similar to that found on the MIDAS XL3, XL4, and Heritage consoles with separate analog remote gain and digital trim controls for gain staging
    Navigation Mode
    FLIP Navigation: selecting an output flips the input fader to become the input channel that sends levels to the selected output

    FX Navigation: deploys a patched internal FX processor to the display screen and maps the ASSIGNABLE CONTROLS to the FX processor

    GEQ Navigation: selects an output which has a GEQ assigned and present the GEQ on the VCA faders

    MCA Navigation: deploys the MCA faders of a selected output to the VCA fader bank. In conjunction with Advanced mode, MCA navigation mode controls the contributions of their members to the currently selected bus.
    Areas A and B
    Facilitates dual operator use for two independent stereo solo systems with: 4-Channel Configurable "Area B" for dual operators
    Mixtender iPad App
    Provides wireless remote control for key functions of the console. The App automatically selects the right console type so there is no difficult setup procedure.

    With the app you can monitor ALL input and output metering simultaneously in real time, and you can remotely EQ any speaker mix with one of the console's on-board KLARK TEKNIK DN370 GEQs.

    The app also provides simple, fast local stage mix adjustment by accessing the consoles' MCA (Mix Control Association). Multiple iPads can be used simultaneously and each one can be locked to a single mix, so artists can create their own monitor mixes without changing any other console settings. The app is free to download from Apple's App Store
    Third Party System Integration
    Provides an Ethernet tunnel between the stage and mix position with additional bandwidth using HYPERMAC digital snakes, Cat 5e, and the fiber optic option for third party data transfer via standard Ethernet traffic, MIDI message, and GPIO (general Purpose Input and Output signaling)
