MIDAS PARAMETRIC EQUALISER 512

MIDAS has announced it is now shipping the Parametric Equaliser 512, a 500 series 4-band fully parametric equalizer based on the MIDAS Heritage 3000.

The PARAMETRIC EQUALISER 512 is a compact 500 Series 4 band fully parametric equaliser based on channel strip originally provided in the legendary MIDAS HERITAGE 3000 mixing console.

When used in conjunction with the LEGEND L10, L6, or other standard 500 Series rackmount chassis, the 512 provides the ideal EQ solution for users seeking MIDAS performance in a modular format that boasts upgraded, premium-quality performance.

Parametric Equaliser 512 features

  • Compact 500 Series module with enhanced MIDAS HERITAGE 3000 four band fully parametric equaliser.
  • Class leading equaliser acclaimed for it’s warm and responsive character with fast easy setup.
  • Precision dual concentric controls give instant access to fully variable gain and frequency settings.
  • Bass and treble bands with selection switches for bell or shelving responses.
  • Fully variable bandwidth controls on all four bands in bell mode.
  • Discrete transistor driven transformer balanced output.
  • High performance electronically balanced input stage with high common-mode rejection.
  • Ultra low noise design using premium quality op-amps.
  • True hardware bypass selection switch removes all circuitry from the signal path when equalisation is not required.
  • Power up mute relays prevent switch on thumps.
  • Advanced design with low power consumption gives extended component life.

Also released is the Compressor Limiter 522, a compressor/limiter with dynamic presence control.

MIDAS COMPRESSOR LIMITER 522

The COMPRESSOR LIMITER 522 brings state of the industry dynamics control to a compact 500 Series format processor that is good enough to wear the MIDAS name.

When used in conjunction with the LEGEND L10, L6, or other standard 500 Series rackmount chassis, the 522 provides the ideal solution for users seeking the legendary MIDAS sound in a modular format that boasts upgraded, premium-quality performance.

Additionally, the 522’s dynamic Presence control enables operators to add “air” to vocals without the unwanted noise or pumping effects found in competing products – and reduces the risk of feedback occurrence during live performance.

Compressor Limiter 522 features

  • Compact 500 Series premium compressor/limiter with dynamic presence control.
  • Fully variable dynamic presence feature preserves high mid-range frequencies for a more natural sound during compression.
  • Dynamic presence control adds “air” to vocals without introducing noise or pumping effects and reduces the risk of feedback during live performances.
  • Manual envelope controls with linear peak-sensing compression or easy to use Auto mode with RMS compression.
  • Soft or hard knee compressor response with selection switch.
  • Sidechain high pass filter with selection switch eliminates undesirable low frequency compression artefacts.
  • High performance electronically balanced input stage with high common-mode rejection.
  • Discrete transistor driven transformer balanced output stage.
  • Precision gain reduction and signal level metering.
  • True hardware bypass selection switch removes all circuitry from the signal path when compression is not required.
  • Power up mute relays prevent switch on thumps.

Both units are designed and engineered in the U.K., featuring premium quality components throughout for a crystal-clear audiophile signal path.

Covered by MUSIC Group’s 3-Year Warranty Program, the 500 series parametric EQ and compressor/limiter are available for a MAP of $799 USD each.
