Bring It Alive.
MIDAS HD SERIES
The HERITAGE-D is a Live Digital Mixer with up to 144 Input Channels, 123 Mix Buses, a 96 KHz Sample Rate and the first full HD 21" multi-touchscreen showcasing formidable ultramodern Graphic User Interface (GUI).
It brings that legendary Midas analog sound into the digital era.
At Midas believe that mixing engineers are the voice of the artists, that's why our Midas HERITAGE-D Series Digital Mixers and I/O Interfaces are designed to serve our Tour sound and Installed Sound Customers.
The Heritage 3000 (H3K) was first introduced in 1999. Its famous purple colour and features made it so distinctly Midas. It soon established itself as the world wide industry standard for live sound applications. The H3K proved to be a huge winner from day one.
The striking colour scheme wasn’t the only thing that made waves within the industry. With a new pre-amp design bettering that of the iconic XL4, large channel and aux counts plus the flexible aux switching system, it’s no wonder the H3K appeared on everyone’s spec as the console of choice.
Living up to the reputation of the H3K is undeniably a hard task; the H3K set a new standard in live mixing.
Naming the Heritage D after such an iconic mixing console was indeed a bold move. However, this product is bold and visionary whilst keeping the legendary sound quality and raising the bar on what a digital mixing console can achieve.
Building on the prolific history of the H3K and PRO Series consoles, the new Heritage D now reinvents the workflow of the sound engineer. Finally, a Midas you can touch. Featuring a powerful 21” HD touch screen and formidable ultramodern Graphic User Interface (GUI) control all at your fingertips. Heritage D is a vision of the future with thought provoking new features such as Channel AI (yes, Artificial Intelligence).
This platform is designed for the future and will continue to grow and develop over many years with an impressive Midas team that are eager to improve and constantly add new features. Your investment in the Heritage D is safe.
The Graviton Mk 2 Processing Engine
At the heart of every mixing console is the most important part – Audio. Overlooked by other manufacturers, we have always put sound at the top of our priority list.
It was hard, almost impossible, but we improved on the legendary Midas digital sound with our new 64-bit summing mix engine with increased dynamic range. Driving a Midas has never been easier.
The key to the Midas sound is in giving ultimate flexibility while still being delay compensated. Avoiding the dreaded comb filtering effect is so very important. Many other consoles simply ignore this crucial part of the audio signal path.
Tap Off Points
New tap off points on channels have been introduced to allow signals to be sent from any point in the signal path. This gives greater flexibility for sending signals to stage before any element of processing has been performed. All this without affecting what Midas magic is needed for the main mix.
For the first time on a Midas, post insert fader points are available plus all processing options orders can be changed by simply dragging and dropping in the order you desire.
Never before has a console been able to listen to your source, tell you what it is, suggest Gain, EQ, Compression and Gate settings if required. All this presented in an easy user interface that lets you decide which parts of suggested settings you wish to use. Adaptive presets let you pick the style of sound you want and the Channel AI™ does the rest. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
The development of the HD96-24 can be summed up with one phrase “We Listened”.
