Ideal for constant use in the same venue, the Midas PRO2 Install Bundle includes the Midas PRO2 64-channel live sound digital console and a Midas DL251 rackmount stagebox. The stagebox features 48 mic preamps, 16 line-level outputs, and AES50 connectivity for hookup to the PRO2. The PRO2 console provides eight mic/line inputs, 28 motorized 100mm faders, 27 mix buses, and powerful DSP including graphic, parametric, and dynamic equalizers, multiband compression, and a variety of effects.
Midas PRO2 Live Audio Mixing System with 64 Input Channels (Installation Package)
The installation package version of the Midas PRO2 Live Audio Mixing System is designed for live sound reinforcement such as in concert venues, theaters, houses of worship, broadcast, and more. The system is designed to work with any of the Midas digital I/O units. It will connect to the Midas DL251 stage box (sold separately) which features 48 Midas mic/line inputs, and 16 analog XLR outputs on stage, in addition to the mixer's 8 mic/line inputs and 16 XLR analogue outputs on the back of the console itself. Two AES3 inputs, three AES3 outputs, and dual-redundant power supplies, all supplied as standard, complete the hardware configuration. AES50 networking allows for up to 156 inputs and 164 outputs @ 96 kHz sample rate
In addition to the mixer's 56 primary input channels, the unit also features 8 aux returns, all of which feature 4-band Midas parametric EQ and insert points. These 8 aux returns can be used as returns for the PRO2's internal FX processors, or as additional mic channels, if sufficient mic inputs are available on the I/O hardware.
The console's 64 possible input channels may be routed to 27 phase-coherent mix buses which comprise 16 user-configurable buses (as mixes, subgroups, or mix minus groups) and eight matrix buses. The matrix buses 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 24 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.
The installation version of the console comes in a shipping crate.
VCA and POPulation Groups
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
Mixtender iPad App
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 console's 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

Compatible I/O Units
Midas DL251 - 48 x 16 Fixed Format I/O Unit
The DL251 from MIDAS is a 5U 19" rackmount fixed-configuration I/O unit with forty-eight microphone/line inputs and sixteen line outputs. Limited to analog connections, the unit provides a more cost-effective solution for those not needing the flexibility of MIDAS modular I/O hardware.
MIDI (In, Out, Thru) connectors and an Ethernet control port are fitted as standard. Three AES50 ports handle the (n+1) redundant digital audio interface. The DL251 is capable of being switched between 96 kHz and 48 kHz via the front panel.
A rear panel "Mute All Outputs" button is provided for aiding in onstage re-patching. The unit is also equipped with dual-redundant, universal power supplies.
