Midas DM16 Overview

Designed to be used in live and recording situations, the  MIDAS DM16 is an 16-input analog mixer. Each one of its 12 mono inputs features a 48V phantom power-enabled MIDAS microphone preamp, as well as a 1/4" line input. These mono channels also sport a three-band EQ with a sweepable middle frequency for fine-tuning timbres. Also useful are 1/4" inserts across each mono input for use with external processing, should you wish to utilize outboard gear. 

Two auxiliary channels are switchable between pre- and post-fader. You can use these auxiliary channels for making headphone/cue mixes, though you also have the option to use any channel on the board as returns for the two auxiliary outputs, allowing you to loop in external effects processors for things like reverb, delay, and whatever else you might want to throw across a bus.

A dedicated 1/4" headphone output is suitable for engineers to achieve a more up-close and focused picture of what's being outputted through the mixer. Additionally, an RCA I/O section allows you to play 2-track audio from a separate device, or to route signal to an external recorder, and thus, to create board recordings without using up necessary mixer real estate.

Notable Features

3-band EQ on mono channels with sweepable mid band
2 aux sends with pre/post fader switching, can be used for external effects processing, custom monitor mixes, or both
16 Precision Faders with 60mm Throw
2 electronically balanced stereo line-input channels on 1/4" TRS connectors
Live performance and studio recording analogue mixer with 16-input channels
Suitable for small venues, or keyboard/drum sub-mixer for larger-scale performances
12 mono input channels with MIDAS microphone preamplifiers
13/14 and 15/16 are dedicated stereo channels, making them suitable for stereo instruments such as keyboards, and can also be used for mono signals thanks to a convenient balance control on each 2-channel grouping
Input channels can also be used as return inputs for signals sent to external effects-processing equipment
