A Truly Innovative Digital Console

The MIDAS PRO2 digital mixer gives you fabulous live sound, with a fast and streamlined workflow. The PRO2's intuitive interface is all about keeping it simple. Rather than the confusing paging and layering concepts employed by many digital boards, the PRO2's intuitive interface is centered around colors and groups. Compact and roadworthy, the PRO2 packs a punch. It has eight mic/line inputs onboard, and ships with the DL251 remote stage-box, which sports another 48. You can also expand your system to cover the largest of shows. Step up to a truly innovative digital console: the MIDAS PRO2.

MIDAS PRO2 Digital Mixer at a Glance:
  • This board sounds amazing
  • Delay management - and why you need it
  • Your investment is protected
This board sounds amazing

MIDAS's reputation for superb audio quality is the result of over 40 years of development and research. The company has endowed the PRO2 with top-shelf components and technology developed from their class-leading XL8 board. The PRO2 boasts 96kHz 40-bit floating-point processing throughout. Its 27 mix buses are time-aligned and phase-coherent. But impressive specs only begin to tell the story of what this board sounds like: amazing!

Delay management - and why you need it

The PRO2 employs MIDAS's proprietary delay management technology. OK, so why is that a good thing? Digital processing takes time to run - usually just a few samples, but never none. ADCs and DACs have much larger delays (typically a few milliseconds), so if you've used analog insert points, the channel in question will be delayed relative to the others. The problem is, combining signals in this way can lead to the summing of signals that are partially out-of-phase, causing nasty comb filtering. All MIDAS digital mixers feature soup-to-nuts automatic time alignment to correct path-related delays, plus automatic compensation for the additional latency introduced by A/D conversion on analog inserts. The result? Better sound.

Your investment is protected

The MIDAS PRO2 gives you everything you need to mix a live show with no sweat. This self-contained console has eight onboard mic/line inputs, and the MIDAS DL251 remote stage-box included with your PR02 system has 48 MIDAS mic/line inputs, for a total of 56 inputs. The DL251 also has 16 analog XLR outputs and includes dual power supplies standard. The DL251 can be located up to 300' from your PRO2, connected with inexpensive and readily available Cat 5e cable. You can also add additional optional I/O units to your system, to a maximum of 156 inputs x 166 outputs - enough to handle ginormous shows. Bottom line, your investment is protected. MIDAS wouldn't have it any other way.

Best Bang for the Buc$

I'm in my fifth decade of owning a regional sound company. Bands have been hauling their own gear for generations for a multitude of reasons. Things like cost and space were low considerations when gear was big, heavy and expensive. Today small, light and technologically leading edge is all I see from touring acts. The PRO2 is a Midas. If you don't know about Midas they have been leading the pack since the industry began. The PRO2 is the number two requested desk (console, board) on every rider I've seen in six months. That tells me if you are a working audio engineer you better know how to run a PRO2. If you are looking to purchase a console that meets riders AND is technologically ahead of the pack at a price point that can't be beat, look no further than the PRO2. Last point. A 'Tour Pack' includes a flight case, second power supply and the remote stage box with 48 in and 16 out. Recognize this is a stand alone console that can be split, control surface at front of house and the stage box, head amps and much of the processing on stage. Or you can simply put the DL251 under the console at foh and run a house analog snake. There is only one other similar option I know of and it costs considerably more and is still 48K sample rate whereas the Midas PRO2 has a 96K clock. I know I can hear the difference. I didn't give it a 5 because nothing is perfect. I have yet to witness live competition to the PRO2 Tour Pack.

great console with minor flaws

I had the opportunity to work with this particular board over the summer for an audio company out of New England. We utilized the hell out of this board and many of it's functions are fantastic. Overall the board operates very well, and once you learn how to navigate through the interface this board is incredibly easy to operate. The POP group function makes mixing a live band incredibly easy. Everything is quite literally a press away from being in front of you. Also the ethernet snake is much easier to tote around than your average snake that weighs a ton is a hassle to coil at the end of your gig. Some down sides... 1. It's not a touch screen, which wouldn't be a big deal but unfortunately the track ball mouse is very stiff and can often be a pain. 2. Often when being transported back and forth between gigs and the workshop, the power supply from the board will actually shift and will keep the board from turning out. Not a major problem, but you'd think it's something that they wouldve made sure didn't happen with a $20k+ console. 3. The lamp input is designed to utilize a 90 degree lamp, but the upper lip of the board does not allow you to use one. So it's almost impossible to get a lamp on to see the board. (The gooseneck lamp just barely gets over the top of the board to give some light) With the exception of these very minor issues, this is a great board. Once you learn to navigate it, it's a fantastic console for just about any event.
