Midas has announced the first public viewing of Generation 2.1 software for its entire range of digital consoles. It will be on display at the upcoming Prolight + Stage 2013 show in Frankfurt, Germany.
Midas Generation 2 software, unveiled last year at Prolight+Sound in 2012, added a host of new features and functionality to Midas digital consoles, including new FX and dynamics options, plus new mixing concepts such as Midas’ unique MCAs and “collapsed” fader flip.
Now Midas is pushing the boundaries once more at PL+S 2013, adding a rack full of new latency-compensated FX plug-ins and dynamics processing options to every console in the PRO series, plus the flagship XL8.
New FX plug-ins include a dual-channel Klark Teknik DN60 Real Time Analyser, a K-T tape saturation effect, sub-harmonic generator, multi-channel input phase adjustment insert, a fifth input compressor option, ducker mode for noise gates, plus a new “transient accent” gate option and a variable presence control for all input channel compressors.
G2.1 will be available as a free download for all Midas owners.
“There has never been a better time to invest in Midas digital,” says brand development manager Richard Ferriday. “G2.1 is further proof that buying into the Midas brand is not just buying the world’s best-sounding mixer-it is also investing in constantly evolving products which offer great ROI, an industry-leading development team committed to providing no-compromise solutions, and well over 40 years of brand heritage.
“When combined with our recent competitive pricing policy, Midas now offers an unbeatable value proposition.”
