Midas has launched three new consoles at InfoComm 2010 in Las Vegas. These include two sister consoles to the Pro6 – the Pro3 and Pro9 – and the XL8i. The firm, now owned by budget gear giant Behringer, also debuted a range of Midas digital snakes and digital audio format and sample rate converters from Klark Teknik.
In what is now a series of consoles, the Pro3 and Pro9 straddle the firm’s established Pro6 console, with the Pro9 becoming the flagship of the range and the cost-effective Pro3 adding a budget-conscious option for those who couldn’t afford the Pro6. The top model features an 88-channel input count and 35 busses, while the entry level version offers 48 inputs and 27 busses.
Few details have been revealed with regard to the XL8i, but we have been informed that it will sit at the very top of Midas’ digital audio console range, created with the installation, theatre and house of worship markets in mind. The company made it clear that all the new systems use the same technology and components as the XL8 and Pro6.
