Midas XL48 Microphone Preamp

The Midas XL48 Microphone Preamp combines the famous sound of Midas preamps, with eight in total, with 96k ADAT outputs, AES3 outputs, word clock, and DB25 analog I/O, all into a one rack unit box that will help expand your I/O for live performance in, touring, house of worship, or a venue of any size.

The Midas XL48 Microphone Preamp is a combination of the best of both analogue and digital worlds. XL48 features eight classic XL4 series microphone preamplifiers in a 1U 19 rackmount enclosure with the acclaimed low latency 24 bit 96 kHz ADC converters with overload protection from the MIDAS XL8 Live Performance System, and a precision reference clock oscillator with 1 part-per- million (ppm) stability.

Additional features include swept high and low pass filters, 8 segment LED input meters, and individual phantom power, polarity invert, and -20 dB pad switches per channel. XL48 features both analogue outputs and digital outputs in ADAT optical and AES3 formats and all outputs can be used simultaneously, allowing the XL48 to be used as a multifunction analogue and/or digital microphone splitter. Multiple internal sample rates are supported, with the option to sync to external word clock. XL48 is ideal for use in portable recording rigs, analogue and digital splits between consoles, or indeed augmenting the performance of other mixing consoles with its MIDAS XL4 microphone preamplifiers, XL8 analogue-to-digital conversion and precision reference-grade 1 ppm internal clock oscillator.
