Midas’ XL48 “digi-log” mic preamp packs eight Midas XL4 mic pres into a 1U box. It comes complete with swept high- and low-pass filters, eight Midas XL8 96 kHz 24-bit A/D converters and a super-low-jitter 1ppm clock. Additional features include 8-segment LED input meters, individual phantom power, polarity invert, and -20dB pad. All inputs are Neutrik XLR and 25-way D-sub connectivity.
The XL48 also features both analog and digital outputs in ADAT and AES/EBU format. All five outputs can be used simultaneously, allowing the XL48 to perform as a multi-function analog/digital mic splitter as well as adding the Midas touch to eight channels of a mix. Multiple clocking options are available, including external wordclock, internal 96k, 88.2k, 48k and 44.1k.
Applications include mobile recording, analog and/or digital splits between consoles, and upgrading other brand digital consoles with MIDAS mic pres and a reference-grade clock.
