MIDAS DM16

16 Input Analogue Live and Studio Mixer with Midas Microphone Preamplifiers

Designed to be used in live and recording situations, the MIDAS DM16 is a premium quality 16-input analogue mixer.

Each one of its 12 mono inputs features a 48V phantom power-enabled MIDAS microphone preamp, as well as a 1/4" line input. These mono channels also sport a three-band EQ with a sweepable middle frequency for fine-tuning timbres.

Also useful are 1/4" inserts across each mono input for use with external processing, should you wish to utilise outboard gear.

Two auxiliary channels are switchable between pre and post fader. 

You can use these auxiliary channels for making headphone/cue mixes, though you also have the option to use any channel on the board as returns for the two auxiliary outputs, allowing you to loop in external effects processors for things like reverb, delay, and whatever else you might want to throw across a bus.

A dedicated 1/4" headphone output is suitable for engineers to achieve a more up-close and focused picture of what's being outputted through the mixer.

Additionally, an RCA I/O section allows you to play 2-track audio from a separate device, or to route signal to an external recorder, and thus, to create board recordings without using up necessary mixer real estate.

Features:

  • Live performance and studio recording analogue mixer with 16 input channels
  • 12 mono input channels with award-winning Midas microphone preamplifiers
  • 2 electronically-balanced stereo line input channels on 1/4" TRS connectors
  • 3 band EQ on mono channels with swept mid band
  • 2 aux sends with pre/post fader switching
  • 60 mm precision long-life faders
  • Rugged chassis construction for durability in portable applications
  • Auto-ranging universal switch-mode power supply
  • 10-Year Warranty Program
  • Designed and engineered in the U.K.

The compact Midas DM16 honours your stage or studio desktop space, while providing incredible sonic performance, amazing versatility – at an unheard of level of affordability.

What is the secret behind DM16’s superb, studio-quality sound?

The DM16 features 12 award-winning, MIDAS microphone preamplifiers with true +48 V Phantom Power, acclaimed by audio engineers the world over for their transparency and nuanced low noise, high-headroom design.

Add to this TRS Line Inputs on all 16 channels (8 mono and 2 stereo), mono channel Inserts and 3-band EQ with mid-frequency sweep, 2 switchable pre/post-fader aux sends, 2 monitor outs and 2-track RCA I/O, and you have an analogue work of art – the fully featured Midas DM16!

Live Performance and Studio Recording

With 16 channels, the DM16 has more than enough microphone and line inputs to manage a small band or worship team with channels to spare – both on the stage and in the studio. It is also the ideal choice for use as a keyboard or drum sub-mixer for larger scale performances.

Dedicated Stereo Inputs

Line channels 13/14 and 15/16 are dedicated stereo channels, making them ideal for stereo instruments, such as keyboards – and can also be used for mono signals thanks to a convenient balance control on each 2-channel grouping.

These channels can also be used as return inputs for signals sent external effects processing equipment.

Sublimely Musical British EQ

The British consoles of the 1960's and ‘70's changed the sound of rock and roll – without them the British Invasion might not have happened.

Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world.

The 3-band channel EQ on our DM16 mixers is based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to imbue signals with incredible warmth and detailed musical character. The sweepable mid-frequency band provides a broad tonal palette with which to finetune the ideal signal.

Even when applied generously, these equalisers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.

Dual Aux Sends

The DM16 is also equipped with 2 aux sends with pre/post fader switching for added versatility. Users can select to use them for external effects processing, custom monitor mixes, or a combination of the two.

Additional monitoring outputs are provided of the main mix for stage or studio monitor applications.

Classic Precision

All of the DM16 mixer’s 60 mm faders have been carefully designed to provide a long life of highly precise level setting, ensuring repeatable and flawless performance for many years to come.

Quality is Job #1

While some manufacturers cut quality when they design small mixers, we understand that every mixer should provide uncompromising performance and a robust feature set.

The very embodiment of quality, from its rugged construction and top-of-the-range components to that unmistakable Midas sound – the DM16 is a truly professional audio console.

Value

No matter what your audio mixing needs, the DM16 provides the performance and features required to take your talent to the next level, at a price that is custom-tailored for the budget-savvy user.

Professional sound quality, legendary Midas mic preamps, 3-band EQs with sweepable mids, and much more make the DM16 mixer ideal for both your live gigs and recording.
