XL48 for web

 

Long after the Midas XL42, which we reviewed way back in Issue 61, Midas has returned to carving up the XL4 console to provide slices of its much-loved tone. The new Midas XL48 squeezes 8 Midas XL4 mic preamps into a 1U box, complete with swept high and low pass filters, 8 Midas XL8 A/D converters and a super-low jitter 1ppm clock. Additional features include 8-segment LED input meters, individual phantom power, polarity invert, and -20 dB pad. All inputs are on Neutrik XLR and duplicated on 25-way D-sub connectors as standard. The XL48 has both analogue and digital outputs in ADAT and AES/EBU format. All five outputs types (analogue and digital) can be used simultaneously, making the XL48 potentially a multifunction analogue/digital mic splitter as well as adding the Midas touch to 8 channels of your mix. Multiple clocking options are available, including external word clock, internal 96 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 48 kHz, and 44.1 kHz. Midas reckons applications include portable recording rigs, analogue and/or digital splits between consoles, or improving the input stage of an “ordinary” digital console – cheeky buggers.
