SuperMAC (AES50-Compliant) digital audio networking technology from Klark Teknik simultaneously 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 – to meet the demanding requirements of live concert touring.
PRO1 is compatible with all MIDAS PRO Series digital I/O units, as well as with any other 96 kHz enabled AES50-equipped devices. Multiple PRO Series consoles can be connected together to create either larger mixing systems, or multiple discrete mixing consoles can share a common resource of networked and distributed I/O interfaces.
Rugged and built to last, the PRO1 Touring Pack includes a PRO1-RCRoad Case, constructed from rigid marine grade plywood and durable aluminium extrusions. Composite density foam provides internal support and superior protection in transit, night after night, city after city.
At the heart of MIDAS Pro Series console navigation is the VCA and POPulation groups, which mirror the natural work flow used by mix engineers and encourages the development of a mental picture, or “Mind Map”, of the whole system. Only the required control elements and associated feedback are presented, allowing users to adopt structured task-based workflows, rather than being presented with an overwhelming ‘sea of knobs’.
The PRO1 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. PRO1 provides comprehensive automatic latency management of all internal routing and processing delays – and also includes compensation for external analogue inserts. All audio samples are synchronised before summing, resulting in absolute phase coherence at the outputs, without the comb filtering effects of many of its Competitor’s products that often result in specific frequencies being cancelled out completely. All effects processors and GEQs are custom-designed to function within this automatic latency compensation system. This ensures a phase-coherent, sample-accurate mix regardless of whether the devices are used as channel inserts or on auxiliary buses.
Delivering unprecedented control and mobility, the MIXTENDER App for iPad combines control of key functions with the highly responsive system metering, allowing users to take control of PRO1 from an iPad anywhere in a venue. Support for multiple simultaneous iPads allows FOH and monitor engineers to work collaboratively, enhancing productivity and communication, as well as saving valuable time during set-up.
The MIXTENDER App for iPad is available as a free download from the Apple App Store.
The PRO1 power supply, which is interchangeable with those inPRO2 and PRO2C, is auto-voltage sensing for use on a worldwide basis and is externally removable for easy field service in the unlikely event of a replacement being required.
