MIDAS MR12 Portable Digital Mixer

MIDAS MR12 is a Portable 12-Input Digital Mixer. It features 4 Midas PRO Preamps, 8 Line Inputs, Integrated Wifi Module and USB Stereo Recorder. The Midas M32 completely redefined what is possible from a digital mixer – and thousands of users are enjoying the results. What’s more, MR12 now features this same technology! This will forever change the way you record and the way you play live music.

A Mixer Whose Time has Come

Additionally, over the past few years, the world of recording and performance audio has experienced a major paradigm shift. A shift that requires musicians and performers alike to take advantage of emerging technologies.

What’s more, it is ideally suited for both live and studio applications. This is thanks to 4 award-winning Midas PRO mic preamps, an integrated Wifi module for wireless control, and MIDI I/O. Plus, a USB connector for storing files or the recording and playback of uncompressed stereo WAV files.

Also, Free iOS, Android and PC apps enable you to move about the room and manipulate your mix. Therefore, performers have the freedom to dial-in a shared monitor mix. Specifically, advanced engineering and meticulous design combine to deliver professional-grade performance and impressive affordability – the MR12.

MR12’s 4 MIDAS PRO Mic Preamps

Additionally, the MIDAS PRO mic amp was developed for the PRO Series mixing consoles. The MR12 has more than 40 years of design excellence and has come together with premium-grade components. To this end they provide unparalleled warmth and depth, subtle ambience, and immaculate spatial positioning.

Finally, the award-winning MIDAS microphone preamplifier has inspired generations of live sound engineers to their best work. They are creating sonic landscapes that have captivated audiences worldwide. What’s more, MR12 comes equipped with 4 MIDAS PRO preamps. Above all, all of them are literally ready for your input via the Neutrik combo connectors with locking latches.

Built-In Tri-Mode Wifi Router

The MR12 comes with an integrated Wifi module for direct control of your mixer’s functions. There is no need to setup and configure an external router. The MR12 gives you the freedom to focus on your mix while you to move about the venue. Therefore, you can experience what every part of the audience is hearing.

Plus you can adjust live monitor wedges from the artist’s perspective – or better yet, let them mix their own IEMs and floor monitors via their own tablets.

Recording Simplified using the MR12

MR12 features a convenient USB connector that makes it easy to store files or record and playback uncompressed stereo WAV files of your mix. Dial in the perfect monitoring mix with effects and zero-latency performance using one of the Aux buses, while recording up to 12 source signals – and send the keyboard player’s MIDI notes to your DAW for recording and editing.

Whether you are making rock history in the studio, or you want to capture intimate live performances – it has never been easier to record stunning tracks with exceptional clarity.

Revolutionary Auto-Mixing

When your application calls for a multiple-microphone setup, such as an onstage panel discussion, press conference or courtroom proceeding, etc., it can become a challenge to maintain so many open mics – and preserve maximum gain and priority for the moderator.

A major first for compact audio mixers, our revolutionary M AIR Gain Sharing technology can easily manage fully automated mixes with up to 4 live microphones. Based on the legendary Dan Dugan automix system, the MR12’s gain sharing paradigm automatically controls the levels of all selected microphones in real time, without any gating artifacts or noise modulation.

This function dramatically reduces the typical feedback, studio noise and comb filtering challenges that can occur when two, or more mics are in close proximity of each another. Also, M AIR Gain Sharing technology provides a consistent system gain structure, even when multiple speakers are talking at the same time.

4 Onboard M32 Effects Engines

To begin with, the MR12 is 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 modeled 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.

MIDI In/Out for Live Performance Controllers

The physical MIDI I/O port on the 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.
