Midas DL441 8 Analog Microphone Preamplifiers
The Midas DL441 is an 8 Analogue Mic/Line Input Card with MIDAS Microphone Preamplifiers
Pro Series DL441
DL441 is a modular 8 analogue mic/line input card for MIDAS PRO Series control centres and modular I/O boxes, and features award-winning MIDAS microphone preamplifiers with switchable +48 V phantom power. Premium low latency 24 bit 96 kHz ADC converters are used to minimise distortion and noise artefacts, and the preamplifier gain, phantom power and high pass filter settings can be remotely configured from the PRO Series control centre.
Award-Winning MIDAS Microphone Preamplifier
The MIDAS microphone preamplifier is considered by leading live sound and recording engineers to be the very essence of the famous MIDAS sound. More than 40 years of design experience paired with the finest choice of premium-grade components lead to the acclaimed warmth and depth – bringing out subtle ambience, maintaining spatial positioning and more effectively capturing a precise sound image. The acclaimed sound of the award-winning MIDAS microphone preamplifier has inspired generations of live sound engineers to their best work, creating sonic panoramas that have captivated audiences worldwide.
Since pristine sound always begins with the microphone preamplifier, the first point where the signal enters the console, DL441 features the latest generation of MIDAS microphone preamplifiers, which faithfully reproduce every sonic detail so no part of a performance will ever be missed. Transparent and pristine sound, low noise and high common-mode rejection are all hallmarks of this classic design.
Over the years many mix engineers have found this robust and overload-tolerant design takes on a whole new dimension of sound when driven hard, the crystal-clear audiophile reproduction giving way to just the right combination of harmonics, a warm and organic sound heard by millions of concert goers and recorded for posterity on countless live albums over the years.
Each input channel on DL441 has LED indicators for +48 V phantom power and a channel check function that allows the console operator to remotely indicate a particular channel, an essential aid to communication in high SPL environments, as well as saving valuable time during set-up.
