NAMM 2015: Midas adds to M32 family

Midas has strengthened its M32 console platform with the new M32R and M32C digital mixers, along with the DL32 32 x 16 stage box.

Both the M32R and M32C are 40-input/25-bus systems with a host of connectivity options, aimed at audio professionals in need of "advanced live sound and recording solutions."

The M32R features the same Midas microphone preamplifiers and ‘1-million cycle’ motorised faders as the manufacturer’s PRO Series consoles. The mixers also feature ULTRANET connectivity for ‘Acoustic Integration’ with the latest Turbosound active loudspeakers and P-16 personal monitoring systems.

Expanding on the functionality and connectivity of the DL16, the DL32 stage box doubles the I/O in a 3U rackmount chassis with 32 Midas PRO Series microphone preamps, 16 XLR outputs, two AES50 ports, AES/EBU stereo outputs, MIDI I/O and dual ADAT connectivity.

“The M32R takes the elements crucial to our highly-acclaimed PRO Series console range and puts them into the hands of new Midas digital customers – at an exceptional price point,” said Graham Rowlands, Music Group Vice President of Global Sales. Professional Division.

“The M32C puts the processing and channel/bus count of the M32 console into a 1U solution. Installers, corporate A/V [professionals[ and those desiring the utmost in compact portability now have a Midas solution. Pair it with the DL32 stage box and you have a 32 x 16 solution that can fit in a 4U rack. These wonderful new products along with the existing M32 and DL16 stage box offer users a truly unprecedented amount of flexibility, quality – and value."

The Midas M32R, M32C and DL32 are available at an estimated US street price of $2,999, $999 and $1,999, respectively – and are covered by a three-year warranty programme.

The new additions to the M32 series are being shown at this year’s NAMM Show (Booth 5244).
