Midas XL48 Mic Pre
At Last! Now everyone can benefit from having the world’s bestloved live sound mic preamps at the top of their signal path.
The new MIDAS XL48 packs eight MIDAS XL4 mic pres into a 1U box, complete with swept high and low pass filters, eight MIDAS XL8 A-D converters and a super-low-jitter 1ppm clock.
Additional features include 8-segment LED input meters, individual phantom power, polarity invert, and -20 dB pad. All inputs on Neutrik XLR and 25-way D-sub.
The XL48 also features both analogue and digital outputs in ADAT and AES/EBU format.
All five outputs can be used simultaneously, making the XL48 a multi-function analogue/digital mic splitter as well as adding the MIDAS touch to 8 channels of your mix.
Multiple clocking options are available, including external wordclock, internal 96 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz.
Applications include portable recording rigs, analogue and/or digital splits between consoles, or pimping up an ordinary digital console with MIDAS mic pres and a reference-grade clock.
