Loaded with legendary Midas Pro Preamps

Midas Pro microphone preamplifiers are praised throughout the live sound industry. Their high common-mode rejection ratio and low harmonic distortion produce transparency that's so good, they are perfectly suited for studio recording as well as sound reinforcement.

To make the most of these preamps, Midas outfitted the MR12 with 40-bit floating-point DSP architecture capable of sustaining 112 dB of dynamic range. It provides the best possible accuracy for the onboard Dugan-style auto-mixing engine.

This brilliant bit of processing actually manages microphone levels for you, cutting down the gain of unused preamps and balancing the levels between multiple presenters or performers.

Together, these technologies practically guarantee professional sound.

Flexible DSP for effects, EQ, and dynamics

Powerful digital signal processing is one of the key components that has made the medium-format M32 one of the most popular digital mixing consoles ont he market, and it's all available to you in the ultra-compact MR12.

In fact, the MR12 comes loaded with four DSP effects processors. Choose from legendary studio gear and industry-standard effects that let you enhance your audio in powerful and creative ways. This onboard DSP also extends to the stereo master bus and all six aux buses, providing them with full dynamics processing plus your choice of 6-band parametric or 31-band graphic EQ's.

If you've been running live sound for some time, then you're probably going to need a smaller rack, because there's no reason to haul around a ton of outboard gear when you're mixing on a Midas MR12.

WiFi, Ethernet, and MIDI control onboard

Rackmount digital mixers like the Midas MR12 are always a bit of a daunting concept to anyone who hasn't used one before. Luckily, Midas has a well-established history of providing reliable wireless control over their digital mixers via a number of avenues.

First up, there are free apps for iOS and Android that let you harness the full potential of your MR12 wirelessly, making it easy to control the mix from anywhere. A tri-mode WiFi router built into the MR12 ensures that you'll always have the best possible connection to your mixer. An Ethernet connection provides even more secure control via your Mac, Windows, or Linux PC with the provided control software.

And if you prefer hands-on control, you can hook up any MIDI controller and take command of the mix with tactile faders, buttons, and knobs.

A Mixer Whose Time has Come

Over the past few years, the world of recording and performance audio has experienced a major paradigm shift, one that requires musicians and performers alike to take advantage of emerging technologies that offer flexibility and ease of use.

The MR12 is an 12-input portable mixer housed in a sturdy stage box design for use with iPad and Android tablets.

It is ideally suited for both live and studio applications thanks to 4 award-winning MIDAS PRO mic preamps, integrated WiFi module for wireless control, MIDI I/O – and a USB connector for storing files or the recording and playback of uncompressed stereo WAV files.

Free iOS, Android and PC apps enable you to move about the venue or the tracking room and manipulate all the parameters of your mix, and the performers have the freedom to dial-in a shared monitor mix.

Advanced engineering and meticulous design combine to deliver professional-grade performance and impressive affordability – the Midas MR12.

4 Onboard M32 Effects Engines

Equipped with the very same FX engines as the now legendary M32 Digital Mixing Console, the onboard virtual FX Rack provides access to four true-stereo (8 mono), multi-effects processors including delay, chorus, dynamics – plus the MR12 can run production-quality, true-stereo reverbs concurrently with 31-band EQ on the main and aux buses, all without the need for any additional hardware.

You can select any combination of high-end simulations of legendary studio effects, such as the Lexicon 480L and PCM70, as well as the EMT250 and Quantec QRS reverbs. Onboard processing means your computer no longer has to do the heavy lifting during a mixing session with DAW plugins, as the MR12 has a whole studio of FX under its bonnet.

Custom-designed, and physically modelled after some of the most iconic and sought-after processors, all effects run inside the low-latency environment of the M32 mix engine, ensuring flawless performance, flexible routing and the end of cable faults.

100-Band RTA for all Channel/ Bus Eq's

The MR12 includes a high-resolution 100-band Real Time Analyser (RTA), with full Bar and Spectrograph views. This high-resolution RTA displays the audio energy distribution in 100 frequency bands over time – capturing a sonogram window of a full 10 seconds.

Switch between the Large RTA view, displaying any available signal in full screen resolution, or the Combined RTA view shown above each of the channel and bus EQ curves – and see the results of your filtering choices.

Additionally, the RTA can be displayed on top of the 31-band graphic EQs in the Main LR or Aux buses. Monitoring and controlling frequencies has never been easier!

Uncompromising Channel Processing

The MR12 allows you to achieve the same incredible level of EQ finesse as the award-winning M32 thanks to its 100-band Real Time Analyser, which is built into every input channel and bus EQ. Visual feedback built into the control app allows you to see and make fast, surgical adjustments to frequencies in need of a boost or a cut.

You will wonder how you ever EQ’d without it!

Every input channel also features Low-Cut, 4-band fully parametric EQ and the same Gate and Compressor dynamics suite found in the M32 – with one very special addition; you can choose either Expert or Simple functionality.

In Expert mode, you can drill down and take total control over every nuance of your dynamics. Or, if you are more of the ‘plug and play’ type, Simple mode lets you either select from one of 4 carefully optimised presets – or load your own channel templates.

Add to this 40-Bit, floating-point DSP and you will experience virtually "unlimited" dynamic range with no internal overload and near-zero overall latency.

In addition to the Main L/R bus for Front of House, 2 Aux buses are provided for dialling in the perfect monitor mixes, or creating a dedicated mix for your USB stereo recording – complete with inserts, dynamics, and either a 6-band parametric EQ or 31-band graphic EQ.

And if you want even more precise control over your EQ, 100-band RTA's are available for all of these buses, too.

MIDI In/Out for Live Performance Controllers

The physical MIDI I/O port on the Midas MR12 mixer can also be used for connecting external MIDI controllers, such as X-TOUCH or B-CONTROL products, for dynamically controlling channel level, muting and panorama adjustments during your performance. The installed firmware also supports the Mackie Control protocol, allowing you to easily apply comprehensive remote editing and parameter adjustments via any compatible MIDI device.

M AIR EDIT (PC/Mac/Linux)

If your application requires a computer for MIDAS M AIR mixer remote control, then M AIR EDIT was made just for you. Simply copy and launch the free software with your computer, connect to the mixer via its built-in Ethernet (LAN) connector using a Cat 5e cable (max. 100 m length) – and all M AIR mixer functions are instantly mirrored on your computer screen.

Since a PC screen is larger than the one on your telephone, M AIR EDIT allows the opening and scaling of more app windows, such as routing or FX editing – letting you decide how much information you need at a glance.

All touch screens are supported, or you can use a mouse to adjust your physical mixer’s settings. You can even control multiple mixers remotely from a single computer, or create several strategically placed computer stations to control the same mixer.

With M AIR EDIT, your PC, Linux or Mac computer becomes your virtual mixer – both live and in the studio.

M AIR MIX for iPad

Front of House is wherever you and your iPad are – thanks to the new M AIR MIX app for iPad.

Simply download the free app to your iPad, set the MIDAS M AIR mixer to Access Point mode and connect your iPad to the MR12 network that will show up. After launching the M AIR MIX app, select the mixer image, and all of your M AIR mixer’s settings can now be adjusted directly from your iPad.

You can save your favourite scenes, and load previously stored scenes and presets to/from your iPad or customise your channel layout – all with the support of innovative drag 'n' drop functionality.

M AIR MIX for Android

Designed specifically for all Android mobile devices (2.2 or higher), which includes tablets and smartphones, the app can be used in one of two modes: full access mixing mode; or bound to a specific aux bus for creating personal monitor mixes remotely on MIDAS M AIR mixers.

Using this free and easy to learn app, each performer can use their Android device to dial-in the perfect personal IEM or wedge monitor mix, without having to consult the audio engineer for assistance.

With the M AIR MIX App for Android, personal monitor mixing just got a whole lot more personal – both live and in the studio! But M AIR MIX offers even more; in full access mixing mode, the app provides control over all channel processing including the RTA overlay, effects editing, storing/loading scenes or presets, and much more – whether you are running a 12" tablet or a 5" smartphone.

Superb Value

The feature-packed MR12 is the result of the engineering, manufacturing and application expertise of legendary console manufacturer MIDAS, the iconic signal processing genius of KLARK TEKNIK – and MUSIC’s unique ability to deliver a superior value proposition.

MR12's sound quality far surpasses that of competing models, both on paper and in performance.

With 12 inputs, 4 MIDAS PRO mic preamps, 2 Aux buses, a built-in Wifi router, a USB connector for simple recording and playback of uncompressed stereo WAV files, MIDI I/O, and free downloadable apps for iOS, Android and PC, and a host of other high-end professional features, the Midas MR12 is equipped to handle your most demanding audio application.
