The new MIDAS XL48 packs eight MIDAS XL4 mic pres into a 1U box, complete with swept high and low pass filters, eight 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 on Neutrik XLR and 25-way D-sub. The XL48 also features both analogue and digital outputs in ADAT and AES/EBU format. All five outputs can be used simultaneously, making the XL48 a multi-function analogue/digital mic splitter as well as adding the MIDAS touch to 8 channels of your mix. Multiple clocking options are available, including external wordclock, internal 96 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz. Applications include portable recording rigs, analogue and/or digital splits between consoles, or pimping up an ordinary digital console with MIDAS mic pres and a reference-grade clock.
