Midas XL8: A New Standard for Digital Mixing
Apr 4, 2006 4:06 PM
Midas is delighted to announce the worldwide unveiling of the XL8 live performance system. This greatly-anticipated launch heralds the leading console manufacturer’s entry into the digital mixing realm. However, this isn’t merely another digital audio product launch. 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 all aspects of a live performance to a single, intuitive control center.
As well as offering classic Midas audio quality and superb reliability, XL8 actually improves upon the performance of the analogue consoles that have established the brand 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. However, its open architecture ensures that third-party devices can easily be integrated into the system.
“Digital technology has now matured to the point where we can offer a mixing system which will conform to all the classic Midas brand values, and won’t be obsolete in a few years,” says Midas and Klark Teknik brand development manager, Richard Ferriday. “Saying that, we certainly haven’t designed XL8 from a nostalgic point of view. Rather, we have listened to our clients’ requirements and molded today’s technology to specifically deliver what they need.”
