Midas 522 500-Series Compressor

The Midas 522 500-Series Compressor is a premium compressor/limiter with a fully variable dynamic presence feature that preserves high mid-range frequencies for a more natural sound during compression, making the 522 as much a tone shaper, as a dynamics tool.

The Midas 522 500-Series Compressor brings state of the industry dynamics control to a compact 500 Series format processor that is good enough to wear the MIDAS name. When used in conjunction with the LEGEND L10, L6, or other standard 500 Series rackmount chassis, the 522 provides the ideal solution for users seeking the legendary MIDAS sound in a modular format that boasts upgraded, premium-quality performance. Additionally, the 522’s dynamic Presence control enables operators to add “air” to vocals without the unwanted noise or pumping effects found in competing products – and reduces the risk of feedback occurrence during live performance.
