Midas PRO 3


PRO3 comprises a control surface (console), a DL371 modular, upgradeable, remote processing engine, and a networked system of I/O devices (up to 11 discrete devices) all connected by inexpensive CAT 5e cabling. Each PRO3 Touring Package ships complete with a MIDAS DL351 modular stage box, featuring 56 MIDAS mic inputs and 8 analogue XLR outputs in its default configuration. PRO3 is also compatible with any of the MIDAS DL series digital I/O units. In addition to this, the PRO3 console has three card slots on its rear panel which can house any combination of MIDAS DL series I/O cards. The default configuration is 8 line inputs and 8 analogue outputs, but this can be quickly reconfigured with whatever connections are required. Redundant power supplies are included with every system as part of the PRO3’s failure-tolerant architecture.

PRO3 is easy to configure and operate. Engineers who are new to MIDAS digital can relax, enjoy the PRO3’s sample-synchronous audio quality, and mix from well within their comfort zone. Engineers already familiar with MIDAS can just load their existing show file straight into the PRO3, regardless of which MIDAS digital console it was created on, and carry on working.

In addition to the PRO3’s 48 primary input channels, PRO3 also features 8 aux returns, all of which feature 4-band MIDAS parametric EQ and insert points. These 8 aux returns can be used as returns for the PRO3’s 6 internal multichannel FX processors, or as additional mic input channels.

A total of 56 input channels have routing to 27 phase-coherent mix buses, which comprise 16 user-configurable buses (which can be mixes, subgroups or mix minus groups), and 8 matrix buses. The Matrix buses source from inputs, as well as groups, and so can be used as 8 additional auxes (monitor mix and FX sends) which provides a total of 24 mixes (plus L, R & Mono) for monitor mixing duties. All buses can be linked as stereo pairs (except the mono bus).

As with all MIDAS digital consoles, the audio paths can be routed to multiple destinations and the console format can be reconfigured live on a scene-by-scene basis.

By fitting additional DSP modules and I/O, PRO3 can be upgraded to full PRO6 or PRO9 configuration, which features 88 input channels, 8 multichannel FX processors and 35 mix buses.
