The MIDAS XL8 live performance system is truly revolutionary and heralds Midas’ entry into the digital mixing realm. However, this is not merely another digital mixing console. XL8 offers an incomparable design combining exemplary sound quality, flexibility and reliability with an ease and familiarity of use unrivalled by other digital control surfaces. XL8 is the first of a new generation of open-architecture, cross-platform, integrated audio control and distribution systems, which brings control of not only audio, but other aspects of a live performance to a single, intuitive control centre.
As well as offering classic Midas audio quality and superb reliability, XL8 actually improves upon the performance of the analogue consoles, which have established Midas as the number one choice of sound engineers the world over. XL8 represents a new generation of networked systems, requiring only mics, amps and speakers to provide a complete audio system.
The XL8’s open architecture ensures that both third-party hardware and software, including “plug-ins” can be easily integrated into the system.XL8 has been designed so the engineer does not have to think in terms of numbers, pages or layers. Users navigate the system and identify channels by colours and groupings, which they themselves create. This method allows an individualised approach to mixing, rather than working within hardware-dictated numerical limitations. This reassuringly familiar way of working is central to the XL8 and ensures that engineers do not have to change their way of thinking to feel comfortable with the new system.
Each of the five bays of the console is a discrete hardware module, which is independent of its neighbour and incorporates its own power supply, surface processor, GUI processor and screen. The only common connection is via a single Ethernet link to the network.
The standard 5-bay control surface comprises a total of five of the following three modules:
• 3 x Input module
• 1 x Mix module
• 1 x Output module.
DN9848E System Controller From Klarkteknik. The DN9848E System Controller features AES/EBU digital inputs as standard.

GB8 8-bus console
Available in frame sizes from 16 to 48 channels, each with four full-function stereo channels and four stereo returns, the GB8 is designed for installations such as churches and performance venues, or for small touring sound systems. The dual-mode topology implemented to such success on the MH3 and MH4 desks allows the GB8 to be used on FOH or monitor duties, with fader control of group or aux outputs. Additional features over the GB4 include a 1kHz oscillator and a meter bridge with three led meters that very closely emulate the ballistics of VU meters.Four mute groups allow several channels to be muted simultaneously, while another unique facility is the limiter on both the Record and Alternate stereo outputs that makes it easier to create a stereo recording of the mix. The console also features an output matrix with eleven feeds to four outputs, being fed from the group busses and main L, R and C (mono) outputs.
A purpose built digital mixer ergonomically designed to compliment modern djs enabling them to maximise their creative potential. Packed with unique features such as the two 32 beat, 24 bit assignable samplers with footswitch, the hi-pass filter to instantly remove turntable rumble and the aural exciter to boost those tightly pressed vinyls and to accentuate your scratches. Built to last with fully replaceable faders and knobs and reverse / curve adjust on all faders.
The 4u high,19 inch rack mount unit houses two power supplies with separate mains connectors and switches. It comes as standard with a MADI pod, or with an optional Optical MADI pod. And the newly designed back plane allows any slot to be either input or output for analogue connections, or both in and out for digital connections such as AES/EBU. Before digital technology was fully embraced, many engineers wanted to connect a large number of external devices and a typical local rack for a D5 Live had 56 inputs and 56 outputs. Now that engineers have used the console for some time, the tendency is to use its powerful internal effects and processing capabilities, thus negating the necessity for a large local rack.
System 6000 Stereo plug-ins for TDM/ProTools
With the System 6000 plug-ins from TC Electronic, some of the most sophisticated algorithms for mixing and mastering are finally made available to the Pro Tools platform. Digidesign's HD DSP card provides a processing infrastructure powerful enough to host a choice selection of stereo reverbs and mastering tools from TC's flagship system. With the new TDM plug-ins, TC Electronic will be making a strong contribution to the Pro Tools platform and continue the pioneer work that started with MasterX and TC Tools.

SB-1 The Sound BeamFrom Meyer Systems.The basic Sound Beam specification calls for a 5-octave bandwidth (500Hz to 16kHz) with a constant beamwidth of under ten degrees to below 1kHz. The only way to meet this specification was to design a horn with a frequency-versus-dispersion characteristic that counterbalanced the effects of the parabolic reflector, and then aim a transducer fitted with such a horn into the dish. This seemingly simple principle, however,required considerable engineering finesse to accomplish in reality. Also, testing of prototypes revealed unacceptable lobing characteristics at the lower end of the desired spectrum. These problems were solved by placing a 12-inch, band-limited cone driver in the center of the dish and using electronic processing to adjust frequency-versus-phase relationships. In the beta production version, the Sound Beam SB-1 comprises a 48-inch fiberglass parabolic reflector and a bullet-shaped driver pod housing a 4-inch compression driver and patent-pending conical horn. The dish housing contains the aiming mechanism along with signal processing electronics and dual 620 watt power amplifiers. MeyerCheck Out!
