The PRO2 features 64 simultaneous input channels with 8 award-winning MIDAS Microphone Preamplifiers and 27 time-aligned and phase-coherent mix buses. Like all PRO Series consoles, the PRO2 features managed latency and 40-bit floating point processing precision. Designed for use in live sound applications, the PRO2 sets a new standard of performance and portability in a compact digital console.
AES50 audio networking technology allows the PRO2 to dynamically assign up to 156 inputs and 164 outputs at 96 kHz sample rate to any of its input channels and bus outputs on a scene-by-scene basis. This high level of connectivity, coupled with the large channel and bus counts, makes the PRO2 as at home in theatres and clubs as it is in live concert touring, outside broadcast and music festivals.
Award-Winning MIDAS Microphone Preamplifier
The MIDAS microphone preamplifier is the essence of the MIDAS sound. The sound of the MIDAS microphone preamplifier has inspired generations of sound engineers to their best work. PRO2 features the latest generation of MIDAS microphone preamplifiers, which reproduce every detail.
Digital Audio Networking
SuperMAC digital audio networking technology from KLARK TEKNIK provides high channel counts, ultra low and deterministic latencies, sample-synchronous and phase-aligned networked clock distribution, error detection and correction, network redundancy, and ease of deployment and use. PRO2 is compatible with all MIDAS PRO Series digital I/O units, as well as with any other 96 kHz-enabled AES50-equipped devices.
Advanced Navigation Flexibility
At the heart of MIDAS Pro Series console navigation is the VCA and POPulation groups, which mirror the workflow used by mix engineers and encourages the development of a mental picture of the whole system. Only the required control elements and associated feedback are presented, allowing users to adopt structured workflows, rather than being presented with an overwhelming sea of knobs.
Integrated Effects Processors and Graphic Equalizers
The PRO2 can simultaneously provide up to 6 multi-channel digital signal processing engines for a wide choice of virtual effect devices, which range from dual-mono delay units, stereo modulation and numerous diverse reverberation simulations, multi-band compression, dynamic EQ and multi-channel dual-function dynamics processing. Up to 28 1/3 octave KLARK TEKNIK DN370 Graphic Equalisers (GEQs) are provided, which can be patched into any output.
PRO2 provides comprehensive automatic latency management of all internal routing and processing latency – and also includes compensation for external analog inserts. All effects processors and GEQs are custom-designed to ensure a phase-coherent, sample-accurate mix regardless of whether the devices are used as channel inserts or on auxiliary buses.
