Digital mixing has revolutionised virtually everything in the live-entertainment production workflow.
The Midas DL32 is the perfect solution for connecting the onstage talent with your Front of House (FOH) console, and the rest of the world – the I/O packed and highly affordable DL32 digital stage box.
The DL32 provides 32 MIDAS PRO Series remote-controllable mic preamps, plus 16 balanced analogue XLR returns at the stage end – and all it takes is a single Cat 5e cable (up to 100 m).
While KLARK TEKNIK, the industry-leader in high-end digital audio processing, invented the AES50 SuperMAC technology that made it all possible – their superb scale of production makes the DL32 so very affordable.
The best part – all it takes is a single CAT5 cable per stage box.
MIDAS - The Legend in Sound Quality
Ever since their formation in the 1970's, Midas have had a long history of innovation and leadership in the world of audio mixing consoles. Employed by the most famous touring acts and installations worldwide, the Midas XL4 and Heritage H3000 consoles quickly became industry standards.
Midas have built an impeccable reputation for our no-compromise approach to audio and build quality, and in particular for their Award-winning Mic Preamps which are considered by industry experts as the industry's best sounding designs.
Building on this legacy, the DL32 features 32 of the very same preamplifiers that are used in their highly-acclaimed PRO Series consoles.
When used as part of a complete Midas M32 system, two DL32 Stage Boxes can be cascaded via the built-in AES50 ports, providing connectivity for up to 64 mic/line inputs and 32 balanced outputs.
The ULTRANET port allows direct connection to TURBOSOND iQ Series loudspeakers and the BEHRINGER POWERPLAY P-16 Personal Monitoring System – which can feed up to 48 individual monitor mixers.
Midas have also included 2 optical ADAT sockets and AES-3 (AES/EBU) for connecting to outboard devices, a convenient USB port for system updates via your PC – plus MIDI I/O for lighting systems and sound module control.
Ecosystem and Beyond
The Midas DL32 was initially designed with their M32 Digital Mixing Console in mind, but any mixing board with AES50 networking capability can still tap directly into the DL32’s powerful feature set.
For instance, a DL32 and M32C could be jointly utilised to create a remote controlled digital mixing system in only 4RU.
Another prime application might include the M32C providing independent monitor mix duties, while also relaying and sharing all I/O with the main console – an M32, or any other digital mixer that supports MADI, Dante, ADAT or AES50 I/O.
Reasonably priced option cards to replace the standard 32 x 32 channel USB interface are separately available for that exact purpose.
ULTRANET – Seamless Integration
The world-renowned engineers at KLARK TEKNIK, MIDAS, TURBOSOUND and BEHRINGER have all come together to create something truly innovative that will change live and studio workflow forever – ULTRANET.
This revolutionary technology seamlessly transmits up to 16 independent channels of 24-bit digital audio and control data via a single CAT5 cable between compatible digital devices – including mixers, I/O stage boxes, powered loudspeakers and personal monitoring systems.
Advantages realised through ULTRANET digital networking, versus traditional analogue methods: audio signals are impervious to Radio Frequency Interference (RFI), signal crosstalk is eliminated, and ease of setup translates directly into significant time saved during installation.
ULTRANET effectuates a powerful digital eco-system that gives you unparalleled control over every element of your audio production environment from one convenient location.
Many manufacturers have adopted the ADAT digital interface as a means of transferring digital data between certain types of audio devices, such as mixers, synthesizers, lighting rigs and effect processors.
The DL32’s onboard ADAT Outputs enable splitting the high-quality MIDAS Pro Series preamp signals to outboard devices – including recording systems.
When more channels are required, these optical sockets can alternately be used to connect ADAT-equipped D/A converters for up to 16 additional analogue outputs.
Dual AES50 Ports for Massive Connectivity
Connecting over a single shielded (STP) CAT5 cable, two DL32's can be daisy-chained to deliver 64 channels in and 32 out to the stage.
KLARK TEKNIK’s AES50 simultaneously provides high channel counts, extremely low and deterministic latency, 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.
- 48 bidirectional audio channels @ 48 kHz over Neutrik etherCON-terminated shielded (STP) CAT5 cable
- Single cable duplex interconnection for audio and sample clocks
- Ethernet physical layer audio data transmission
- High channel count and ultra-low deterministic latency (2x3 samples = 1⁄8 ms per node)
- Accurate phase-aligned clock distribution
- Comprehensive error detection and management
- Provision for redundant networking - Minimal configuration – total ease of deployment and use - Ethernet TCP/IP protocol-compatible auxiliary data channel
- Royalty-free implementations available as Xilinx FPGA cores
- OEM modules available from developer partners
Remotely Controllable Preamps Make Setup a Breeze
The Midas DL32’s ingenious monitoring/head amp control section allows you to select any of the 32 inputs, 16 bus outputs or P-16 output streams for immediate line checks.
In addition to signal metering at the stage box, you can also set individual input channel Gain, apply +48 V phantom power – and listen directly to the input signal via headphones and much more.
Once set, all configuration settings can be locked at the console for total system security.
Assignable Headphones Output for On-Stage Monitoring
For easy set up and signal routing verification, a headphones jack is conveniently located on the front of the DL32, giving you the option of listening directly to any of the 32 inputs.
Simply select the signal you need to monitor by scrolling through the 32 channels whilst adjusting the gain and selecting the operating mode – all via a single robust rotary control.
Using scene automation has never been simpler or more convenient.
The automation scenes allow MIDI events to be incorporated, so that external MIDI-compatible devices can be controlled as part of a scene change via your console’s MIDI output.
Additionally, console events can be triggered from an external MIDI source via your console’s MIDI input.
You can also control the gain and phantom power settings remotely using the MIDI communication functionality.
As you can see, the DL32 digital stage box is the ideal 32 x 16 signal distribution solution thanks to the legendary Midas remote controllable mic preamps, KLARK TEKNIK’s AES50 connectivity and a wealth of other professional-grade features.
Built tough enough to withstand the rigours of the road, the Midas DL32 only takes up three rack spaces and connects to FOH with a single, inexpensive CAT5 cable.
Now you can have the missing link between the stage and FOH at a fraction of the cost of competing systems – and they back it up with a comprehensive 10 year warranty program.
