Live Digital Console with 48 Input Channels, 24 MIDAS Microphone Preamplifiers, 27 Mix Buses and 96 kHz Sample Rate

The ground breaking PRO1 features 48 simultaneous input channels with 24 award-winning MIDAS Microphone Preamplifiers and 27 time-aligned and phase-coherent mix buses in an all-new lightweight aluminium frame. Like all PRO Series consoles, the PRO1 features managed latency and 40 bit floating point processing precision. Designed for use in high-profile live sound applications, the PRO1 sets a new standard of performance and portability in a compact digital console form factor.

AES50 audio networking technology allows the PRO1 to dynamically assign up to 172 inputs and 172 outputs at 96 kHz sample rate to any of its input channels and bus outputs on a scene-by-scene basis. This high level of connectivity, coupled with the large channel and bus counts, makes the PRO1 equally at home in theatres and clubs as it is in live concert touring, outside broadcast and music festivals.

Award-Winning MIDAS Mic Preamplifier
The MIDAS microphone preamplifier is considered by leading live sound and recording engineers to be the very essence of the famous MIDAS sound. More than 40 years of design experience paired with the finest choice of premium-grade components lead to the acclaimed warmth and depth - bringing out subtle ambience, maintaining spatial positioning and more effectively capturing a precise sound image. The acclaimed sound of the award-winning MIDAS microphone preamplifier has inspired generations of live sound engineers to their best work, creating sonic panoramas that have captivated audiences worldwide.

Since pristine sound always begins with the microphone preamplifier, the first point where the signal enters the console, PRO1 features the latest generation of MIDAS microphone preamplifiers, which faithfully reproduce every sonic detail so no part of a performance will ever be missed. Transparent and pristine sound, low noise and high common-mode rejection are all hallmarks of this classic design.

Over the years many mix engineers have found this robust and overload-tolerant design takes on a whole new dimension of sound when driven hard, the crystal-clear audiophile reproduction giving way to just the right combination of harmonics, a warm and organic sound heard by millions of concert goers and recorded for posterity on countless live albums over the years.

Digital Audio Networking
SuperMAC (AES50-Compliant) digital audio networking technology from KLARK TEKNIK simultaneously provides high channel counts, ultra low and deterministic latencies, sample-synchronous and phase-aligned networked clock distribution, error detection and correction, network redundancy, and ease of deployment and use - to meet the demanding requirements of live concert touring.

PRO1 is compatible with all MIDAS PRO Series digital I/O units, as well as with any other 96 kHzenabled AES50-equipped devices. Multiple MIDAS PRO Series consoles can be connected together to create either larger mixing systems, or multiple discrete mixing consoles can share a common resource of networked and distributed I/O interfaces.

Advanced Navigation Flexibility
At the heart of MIDAS Pro Series console navigation is the VCA and POPulation groups, which mirror the natural work flow used by mix engineers and encourages the development of a mental picture, or "Mind Map", of the whole system. Only the required control elements and associated feedback are presented, allowing users to adopt structured task-based workflows, rather than being presented with an overwhelming 'sea of knobs'.

Integrated Effects Processors and Graphic Equalizers
The PRO1 can simultaneously provide up to 6 multi-channel digital signal processing engines for a wide choice of virtual effect devices, which range from dual-mono delay units, stereo modulation and numerous diverse reverberation simulations, multi-band compression, dynamic EQ and multi-channel dual-function dynamics processing. Up to 28 1/3 octave KLARK TEKNIK DN370 Graphic Equalizers (GEQs) are provided, which can be patched into any output.

PRO1 provides comprehensive automatic latency management of all internal routing and processing delays - and also includes compensation for external analogue inserts. All audio samples are synchronised before summing, resulting in absolute phase coherence at the outputs, without the comb filtering effects of many of its Competitor's products that often result in specific frequencies being cancelled out completely.

All effects processors and GEQs are custom-designed to function within this automatic latency compensation system. This ensures a phase-coherent, sample-accurate mix regardless of whether the devices are used as channel inserts or on auxiliary buses.
