Midas' goal for the M32R was to combine the best of classic British console designs with advanced modern technology to completely redefine what a medium-format live console can offer.  They began the industrial design process by drawing inspiration from a somewhat unexpected source - the luxury and high-performance car industry.

Why High-Performance Cars?
Simply, because the design teams at Aston Martin, Bentley, Rolls Royce and other leading manufacturers are skilled at introducing innovative technological advancements while simultaneously maintaining the feel, essence, and intangible qualities of their cherished brands.  And in essence, that's the challenge Midas also faced when creating the M32R console.

So in order to create a future-forward design that took the MIDAS legacy even further, they enlisted the help of Rajesh Kutty, a leading industrial designer known for his work with celebrated luxury auto manufacturers such as Bentley, etc.

Kutty started by examining the design elements that have made MIDAS consoles so highly sought after - from the straightforward, logical layout to the unparalleled usability and ergonomics.  These are characteristics that live sound engineers around the world have come to rely on, and are key aspects of the MIDAS legacy.

With these design elements in mind, Kutty set forth to create a styling that would be modern, innovative, futuristic, and stunningly elegant.

Many different construction materials were tested.  Countless design variations were explored.  And in the end, a styling was chosen that represented the perfect marriage between aerodynamic artistry and uncompromising performance.  The design is both ultramodern and distinctly classic at the same time.

The Landmark in Console History
A close look at M32R reveals that the styling is completely new in every sense of the word.  Rajesh Kutty's automotive-inspired design elements mesh perfectly with a recognisable MIDAS signature, setting the M32R apart from any other console.  Its beautifully streamlined and elegant form factor completely revolutionises the experience of live mixing.

The MIDAS M32R construction is equally impressive, and is designed to offer you years of reliable performance while withstanding the demanding environment of live performance venues.  M32R employs a predominantly space-frame construction, with parts of the sub-frame consisting of durable and lightweight carbon fiber and aluminium.  Multiple alloys have been employed throughout to guarantee maximum component efficiency and an improved performance-weight ratio.

The M32R is an innovative, evolved design that brings together modern construction principles and high-tech materials into a styling that's destined to go down as a landmark in console history.

Industry-Leading 192 kHz Precision
The groundbreaking M32R console combines legendary MIDAS sound quality with advanced digital technology, future-proof 96 kHz capable open architecture design and industry-leading 192 kHz ADC and DAC converters, creating a revolutionary mid-format live console.  M32R features ultra-sleek styling, offering you a truly luxurious mixing experience.  High-end construction materials including carbon fibre provide unparalleled durability and strength, plus substantially lower weight than comparable consoles.

The M32R utilizes award-winning MIDAS PRO Series microphone preamplifiers and the custom-designed MIDAS PRO motorised faders that are rated for 1 million life cycles-three times more than other leading consoles.

The MIDAS M32R is a future-forward console that completely raises the bar for live mixing.

Legendary MIDAS Sound Quality
While the MIDAS M32R design, styling, and construction will surely turn a lot of heads, it's the sound that matters most to engineers and performing artists.  And that's where M32R shines even brighter - as the latest in a long line of pristine-sounding MIDAS consoles, it descends from a celebrated lineage that literally set the standard in electrical design and sound quality.  Ever since MIDAS consoles first found fame 40 years ago with acts like Billy Joel, Yes, The Beach Boys, Pink Floyd and others, the MIDAS legacy has always been about uncompromising quality and the ultimate in sound reproduction.

Backing the analog input section are audiophile Cirrus Logic multi-channel 192 kHz capable A/D converters, which boast a 114 dB dynamic range, ensuring impressively low distortion and low noise performance.

The MIDAS PRO FADER - Rated for 1 Million Life Cycles
In Midas' pursuit to lead the industry in every possible aspect, they decided to design the world's most reliable motor fader.  They dove deep into materials science, employing semi-precious metals that offered the durability they desired.  They took painstaking care to design a motorized fader that would provide continuous performance night after night, year after year.

After spending a great deal of time working with metal vendors, Midas developed precision components that offer high linearity, robustness, and smooth feel during operation.  They needed ultra-straight high-grade steel guide rods with smooth polished surfaces-and they got them.  They worked closely with theit manufacturing partners to maintain the tolerance of their parts, always choosing the most suitable materials and controlling the processes to ensure consistent moulding quality and eliminating the warping and deformation caused by shrinking as the parts cool.

True, none of this was easy - they spent many long hours developing the MIDAS PRO FADER design.  However, the results speak for themselves.

MIDAS PRO FADERS are rated for up to 1,000,000 cycles-three times that of other leading manufacturers.

LCD Scribble Strips
A total of 17 programmable LCD Scribble Strips offer channel/bus identification that mirrors what is being controlled.

Use them to enter input/output tags, plus add icons you recognize at-a-glance.  Then assign colors to create visual groups for immediate, on-the-fly recognition of similar inputs.

Simple, elegant and effective - plus you'll never need masking tape again.

Virtual Effects Racks ( See above for images )
M32R includes an extensive array of onboard effects, rendering outboard processing racks a thing of the past.  The Virtual FX rack features 8 true-stereo, studio-grade effects engines each assignable to any input, group or output mix bus.  Choose from high-end FX modules including a range of reverbs, delays, EQs, dynamics and much more.

Each FX algorithm has been completely re-imagined for stunning performance - typically costing several times the price of the M32R.

Custom-designed, and physically modeled after some of the most iconic and sought-after processors, all effects run inside the low-latency environment of the M32R mix engine, ensuring flawless performance, flexible routing and the end of cable faults forever.

The immaculate tube signal path in Teletronix' LA-2A Leveling Amplifier has left its exceptional clarity, its rich and warm compression on countless albums of the past decades.

The ultra-smooth optical attenuator is closely modeled in Midas' LA COMPRESSOR .  It provides breezing, natural and effortlessly musical compression. (Inspired by Teletronix LA-2A.)

When Urei released the 1176LN Limiting Amplifier in the late '60s, it broke new ground.  Field Effect Transistors employed were just invented and the 1176 was one of the first audio processors to benefit from this new technology.

Midas' digital re-incarnation, ULTIMO COMPRESSOR , is based on the early Rev. E model and authentically captures the smooth character of the original class-A output stage and its FET's legendary fast Attack. (Inspired by Urei 1176LN.)

The Fairchild 670 tube compressor not only achieves record bids in high-end vintage gear auctions, it also delivers some of the finest colorations in compressor history.  Two small trim VR's preset the control side chain action, a six-step switch determines the timing, and the two large Input and Threshold knobs adjust the levels.

Midas' FAIR COMPRESSOR model is true to the original signal path, and conveniently provides models for dual, stereo-linked or M/S operation. (Inspired by Fairchild 670.)

The COMBINATOR is an amazing 5-band compressor that emulates famous broadcasting and mastering compressors.

A highly complex processor, the COMBINATOR utilizes automatic parameter control that produces stunning and "inaudible" results.  Makeup-gain for each frequency band will automatically be adjusted by the Spectral Balance Control (SBC) function, to maintain a balanced audio spectrum.

The XTEC EQ1 is undisputedly one of the best passive studio equalizers ever manufactured.  Virtually indescribable, recording engineers claim the Pultec EQP-1a to be the "secret sauce" of sound enhancement.

Midas analyzed this classic to the core and created an exact physical model that reproduces the multi-faceted sound in painstaking detail. Even the transformers and tube output stage have been faithfully modeled. (Inspired by Pultec EQP-1a.)
 
Pultec simply wrote the book on passive equalization.  By digitally "rebuilding" every aspect of the original Pultec classic, Midas captured the very essence in their parametric equalizer XTEC EQ5 .  Their digital re-incarnation is based on the original model and authentically emulates the smooth character of the its rather unique components. (Inspired by Pultec MEQ5.)
 
The SUB OCTAVER provides two channels of earth-shattering sub-harmonics generation, one or even two octaves below the input signal.  While originally designed for bass players, the effect can be adjusted for Hi, Mid and Low frequency tracking to apply to a wide range of applications.  This is your secret weapon for beatboxing.
 
The EDISON EX1 is the re-incarnation of Midas' own analog classics.  This remarkably-effective tool allows manipulation of the stereo field.  Selectable M/S input/output modes allow the processing or creation of M/S recorded sound sources. (Inspired by BEHRINGER EDISON.)
 
The SOUND MAXIMIZER restores natural brilliance and clarity to any audio signal by adjusting the phase and amplitude integrity to reveal more of the natural texture of the sound, which is often hidden when using some effects and equalizers. (Inspired by Sonic Maximizer 482i.)
 
The DIMENSIONAL CHORUS is the perfect emulation of what has been referred to as "the best analog Chorus unit ever created".  Four simple Mode preset buttons activate amazing effects, best described as "space" and "dimension".  Absolutely faithful to the original, multiple preset buttons can be pressed simultaneously. (Inspired by Roland Dimension D Chorus.)

MODULATION DELAY combines three of the most used time modulation effects into one easy-to-operate unit.  Enjoy true-stereo delay with a lush and spacious chorus, topped off with three reverb models to choose from.

The Lexicon 480L has been recognized as the gold standard of digital reverb.  We have included three of the finest reverb models - Rich Plate, Room and Rich Chamber .  The M32R's models precisely capture all nuances based on Midas' "True Physical Modeling" and their algorithms even incorporate the unit's AD/DA gain stepping converters - nailing the entire analog and digital circuit paths right down to the last detail. (Inspired by Lexicon 480L.)

EXCITERS increase presence and intelligibility in live sound applications and are indispensable for adding clarity, air and harmonic overtones in the recording studio.  ENHANCERS let you emphasize the Bass, Midrange and Hi output at selectable frequencies.

You can generate maximum punch, clarity and detail, without turning up the overall volume. (Inspired by Aphex Aural Exciter and SPL Vitalizer.)

Midas' TruEQ STEREO GEQ delivers musical and responsive signal processing-perfect for general room equalization, indispensable for monitoring.  M32R provides up to 16 mono graphic EQs, in addition to the multi-band parametric EQs in all channels and buses, to cope with the most demanding stage monitoring situation.

Plus, the M32R's motorized faders can be switched to control the filter bands of the graphic EQ, with the channel LCDs showing the corresponding filter frequencies-and you can even put this on a user defined hot-key for immediate access. (Modeled after KLARK TEKNIK DN360)

VINTAGE ROOM stands out head and shoulders over other competing reverberation strategies in the way it models sound propagation in air and room resonances.  Invented in the early '80s, the role model delivered authentic room character from an algorithmic reverb long before convolution-based processing was available.

It is an ideal reverb for mixes or sub-groups, as it adds space to complex signals-highly valued in classical music and broadcasting environments. (Inspired by Quantec QRS.)

PLATE REVERB emulates the characteristics of a plate reverb chamber with control over the damping pad, modulation depth and speed, and crossover.  PLATE REVERB will give your tracks the sound heard on countless hit records since the late 1950s. (Inspired by Lexicon PCM70.)

The 3-TAP DELAY in the M32R records the input signal and then echoes it back after a user-definable period of time and number of repeats.  What makes the stereo and triple delay useful and outstanding is the linked tap-timing and musical choice of echo patterns.

Use the 3-TAP DELAY to fatten up vocals and instruments, or to add an enhanced spatial element to any performance.

The HALL REVERB effect provides a broad spectrum of reverberation possibilities, from small room to large, or even cavernous proportions.  When softly mixed with the original signal, Hall Reverb can be used to create a warm, more natural sound. (Inspired by Lexicon 480L.)

The handy dynamic FLANGER & DELAY duo blends the "whoosh" of soaring jet planes with classic Delay, and can be adjusted from mild to wild.  This combination effect only takes up one FX slot. (Inspired by Lexicon PCM70.)

WAVE DESIGNER is a powerful tool for adjusting signal transients and dynamics such as attack and sustain.  Use it to make a snare drum really "crack" in the mix or level out volume inconsistencies of slap bass tracks. (Inspired by SPL Transient Designer.)

The STEREO PRECISION LIMITER is perfect for setting a precise volume limits, ensuring distortion-free and optimal signal integrity.  Use the Stereo Precision Limiter to boost quiet signals or reduce the level of "hot" signals to prevent clipping. (Inspired by Sony Oxford Dynamics.)

The DE-ESSER is a "must-have" tool for reducing the amount of sibilance in vocal mics while adeptly preserving the natural voice timbre of a performance.  Use it to enhance the smoothness of the upper mid to high frequencies in vocals as well as drum overheads and strings, etc. (Inspired by SPL 1239.)

Based on the legendary EMT250, the VINTAGE REVERB delivers a shimmering, bright reverb that won't drown out or overpower your live/recorded tracks. Use the VINTAGE REVERB to sweeten vocals and snare drums without sacrificing clarity. (Inspired by EMT250 Plate Reverb.)

Taking up only one FX slot, the CHORUS & CHAMBER effect combines the shimmer and doubling characteristics of a studio-grade Chorus with the sweet sound of a traditional Chamber reverb. (Inspired by Lexicon PCM70.)

What are AES50 and SuperMAC?
AES50 simultaneously provides high channel counts, extremely low and deterministic latencies, accurate phase-aligned networked clock distribution, error detection, network redundancy, with simple deployment and ease of use to meet the needs of the live performance industry.

This unique combination also benefits both live and studio recording applications, as well as post-production, broadcasting and audio routing infrastructure.  SuperMAC is a proprietary implementation of AES50 owned by KLARK TEKNIK.  Originally developed by Sony Pro-Audio Labs in Oxford, UK, it forms the basis of the Audio Engineering Society's AES50 open standard for digital audio networking - High Resolution Multi-channel Audio Interconnection (HRMAI), as published by the Audio Engineering Society, Inc.
