Make The Most Of Your Tracks With The Midas DM16 Analog Live And Studio Mixer W/ MIDAS Mic Preamps

The compact DM16 honors your stage or studio desktop space, while providing incredible sonic performance, amazing versatility – and an unheard of level of affordability.

What is the secret behind DM16’s superb, studio-quality sound? The DM16 features 12 award-winning, MIDAS microphone preamplifiers with true +48 V Phantom Power, acclaimed by audio engineers the world over for their transparency and nuanced low noise, high-headroom design. Add to this TRS Line Inputs on all 16 channels (8 mono and 2 stereo), mono channel Inserts and 3-band EQ with mid-frequency sweep, 2 switchable pre/post-fader aux sends, 2 monitor outs and 2-track RCA I/O, and you have an analogue work of art – the fully featured DM16!

LIVE PERFORMANCE AND STUDIO RECORDING

With 16 channels, the DM16 has more than enough microphone and line inputs to manage a small band or worship team with channels to spare – both on the stage and in the studio. It is also the ideal choice for use as a keyboard or drum sub-mixer for larger scale performances.

DEDICATED STEREO INPUTS

Line channels 13/14 - 15/16 are dedicated stereo channels, making them ideal for stereo instruments, such as keyboards – and can also be used for mono signals thanks to a convenient balance control on each 2-channel grouping. These channels can also be used as return inputs for signals sent external effects processing equipment.

SUBLIMELY MUSICAL BRITISH EQ

The British consoles of the 1960s and ‘70s changed the sound of rock and roll – without them the British Invasion might not have happened. Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world. The 3-band channel EQ on Midas' DM16 mixers is based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to imbue signals with incredible warmth and detailed musical character. The sweepable mid-frequency band provides a broad tonal palette with which to finetune the ideal signal. Even when applied generously, these equalizers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.

DUAL AUX SENDS

The DM16 is also equipped with 2 aux sends with pre/post fader switching for added versatility. Users can select to use them for external effects processing, custom monitor mixes, or a combination of the two. Additional monitoring outputs are provided of the main mix for stage or studio monitor applications.

CLASSIC PRECISION

All of DM16 mixer’s 60 mm faders have been carefully designed to provide a long life of highly precise level setting, ensuring repeatable and flawless performance for many years to come.

VALUE

No matter what your audio mixing needs, the DM16 provides the performance and features required to take your talent to the next level, at a price that is custom-tailored for the budget-savvy user. Professional sound quality, legendary MIDAS mic preamps, 3-band EQs with sweepable mids, and much more make the DM16 mixer ideal for both your live gigs and recording.
