Touring console with road case.
The 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 aluminum 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.
This product also includes a custom-cut road case with casters, knobby steel corners, twist-hasp latches and recessed handles. Rugged and built to last, the PRO2 Touring Pack includes a PRO2-RC Road Case, constructed from rigid marine grade plywood and durable aluminum extrusions. Composite density foam provides internal support and superior protection in transit, night after night, city after city.
Award-Winning MIDAS Mic Preamplifier
The MIDAS microphone preamplifier is the essence of the MIDAS sound. The sound of the MIDAS microphone preamplifier has inspired generations of sound engineers to their best work. PRO1 features the latest generation of MIDAS microphone preamplifiers, which reproduce every detail.
Digital Audio Networking
SuperMAC digital audio networking technology from KLARK TEKNIK 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. PRO2 is compatible with all MIDAS PRO Series digital I/O units, as well as with any other 96 kHz-enabled AES50-equipped devices.
Advanced Navigation Flexibility
At the heart of MIDAS Pro Series console navigation is the VCA and POPulation groups, which mirror the workflow used by mix engineers and encourages the development of a mental picture of the whole system. Only the required control elements and associated feedback are presented, allowing users to adopt structured 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.
