Midas Mic Preamp – Legend Inside!
Did you know that Midas is one of the most recognized brands used by audio professionals around the world? Now you can get the gear the pros use! STUDIO L comes with two state-of-the-art Midas microphone preamplifiers with +48 V phantom power, ultra-low noise, high gain and audiophile quality.
The STUDIO L is the ideal solution for home or professional studios, or as part of a larger setup. Premium, ultra-low noise components and high headroom lets your music shine at its best – this is especially true for one of the most critical sources: Vocals!
Crystal Clear Signal Path at 192 kHz
The STUDIO L is more than just a monitor controller – we added one of the best USB audio interfaces with the highest possible resolution and lowest latency. Full 192 kHz sampling rate at a clear 24-bit resolution will make you smile listening to the crisp and astonishing sound you’ll get.
With the STUDIO L, you won’t have to worry about any USB noise or hum. It features a super-quiet USB I/O with up to 8 dB of less noise than other audio interfaces on the market, while the lower output impedance on the STUDIO L allows for even higher output volume.
VCA-Control – Not Just a Volume Knob
Unlike the typical and inexpensive potentiometers used by our competitors, the STUDIO L utilizes high-end Voltage Controlled Amplifier (VCA) technology. While conventional monitor controllers directly pass the signal through the volume potentiometer, the STUDIO L controls a separate high-precision amplifier circuit that drives the volume change. For perfect stereo and phase coherency, precision level adjustment, accurate sound and no quality degradation over time.
And our really big dial allows you to make precise adjustments with ease and set levels fast and accurately – critical to the final sound when it comes to mixing and mastering.
The All-In Device
The STUDIO L integrates seamlessly into your existing setup. You can even make it the center piece of your studio. Thanks to the built-in audio interface and Midas microphone pre-amps it becomes an all-in-one recording solution, just add your computer and you’re ready to go.
Instantly switch between audio sources, USB and monitor outputs. The large volume knob makes it easy to dial-in the perfect level every time, without having to reach for your mixer – or your mouse. Now you can create powerful, custom monitor mixes. Plus, the built-in Talkback mic lets you communicate directly with the talent.
More Monitor Options
Today’s recordings have to sound great everywhere: in the car, at home, on your cell phone, soundbar, Bluetooth speakers and in the club – so experiencing your mix through as many speaker systems as possible is more essential than ever.
The ultra-convenient STUDIO L lets you switch between 2 independent pairs of studio monitors – each with individual level adjustments. Listen through studio monitors (such as our B2031A or MS16), or any other combination – at the mere press of a button!
The STUDIO L comes with two pairs of input connectors and a 3.5mm (1/8”) stereo input for connecting a smartphone or music player, as well as two pairs of high-quality outputs to connect your favorite monitor speakers.
The first 2 inputs can be fed by a line source or any type of microphone, in any combination – operating in dual mono or stereo-link mode. Not to mention the 2-Track output which can be used for a variety of applications. Connect a 2-track digital recorder, an additional soundcard, mixer or whatever you require.
No need for a desk stand and an external mic to talk to the talent in the isolation booth. STUDIO L’s high-quality, built-in microphone is just a button push away, so you can save your mics for the drum kit. The onboard headphone amplifier section lets you connect 2 pairs of headphones with individual level controls and a common source selector, which will make the next session one of your best.
Not to forget, the STUDIO L also comes with the most important switches exactly where you need them – right at your fingertips. Mono and Mute buttons and even a Dim switch which instantly reduces the signal going to the monitor speakers by 20 dB. Perfect for momentarily lowering the volume to talk to someone without moving the knob.
