The MIDAS XL48 packs 8 MIDAS XL4 mic preamps into a 1U box, complete with swept high and low pass filters, 8 MIDAS XL8 A/D converters and a super-low jitter 1ppm clock. Additional features include 8-segment LED input meters, individual phantom power, polarity invert, and -20 dB pad. All inputs are on Neutrik XLR and duplicated on 25-way D-sub connectors as standard.
 
XL48 features both analogue and digital outputs in ADAT and AES/EBU format. All five outputs can be used simultaneously, making the XL48 a multifunction analogue/digital mic splitter as well as adding the MIDAS touch to 8 channels of your mix. Multiple clocking options are available, including external word clock, internal 96 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 48 kHz, and 44.1 kHz.
 
Applications include portable recording rigs, analogue and/or digital splits between consoles, or improving the input stage of an ordinary digital console with MIDAS mic preamps, convertors and a reference-grade clock.
