Midas DM12 overview

  • 1Description

Designed to be used in live and recording situations, the  MIDAS DM12 is a 12-input analog mixer. Each one of its eight 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
12 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 12-input channels
Suitable for small venues, or keyboard/drum sub-mixer for larger-scale performances
8 mono input channels with MIDAS microphone preamplifiers
9/10 and 11/12 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

    Midas DM12 reviews

    DM12 12-Input Analog Live and Studio Mixer with Microphone Preamplifier is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a be all do all mixer but at this price point, worth it! I'm using this mainly to mix all of my keyboards and run them through outboard gear for recording and right off the bat the preamps are far superior to my A&H Zed. Very hi fi with some added muscle on the bottom. The EQ is very smooth. Haven't gotten deep into that aspect of it but it doesn't give things an EQ'd sound and is very gentle to my ears. Originally got the 14 input model but that one was defective (kind of rare with this brand but the quality was high enough for me to pay extra for shipping and exchange it to get another one, this smaller model.) This is not a completely Midas mixer. This is from their sister company, but the preamps are Midas designed. You're not exactly getting a high end recording console but you're getting some of the goodies that are onboard some of those expensive monsters. If you're running things at +4 and planning to go into the preamps, forget about it. There's not enough headroom. They clip at the lowest settings. Maybe this is a handicap of many of these small format boards but an additional 10 dbs down on the master fader would have made a huge difference. At +4, I had to go through the RCA jacks and thus couldn't take advantage of the EQ and preamps. Had to take a star away for that, but I can still run full mixes through those jacks and out through my outboard gear on the way to my mastering chain with no noticeable loss of quality. Hooked up with an effects unit like the TC electronic M350 this thing kills. Extremely quiet and thus perfect in that aspect as far as recording goes.
