Heritage History

The arrival of the Heritage 3000 (H3K) in 1999 marked a turning point. Its iconic purple hue and innovative features immediately stamped it as a quintessential Midas creation. Rapidly becoming the gold standard across live sound applications globally, the H3K was an instant triumph. Beyond its eye-catching color, its new preamp design surpassed even the revered XL4. Boasting ample channels, aux counts, and a versatile aux switching system, the H3K swiftly became the preferred console on every spec sheet. Matching the H3K's legacy is no small feat; it set an unprecedented benchmark in live mixing. Dubbing the new product as Heritage D after such an iconic console was a bold move. Yet, this iteration stands tall, embracing bold vision while upholding the legendary sound quality, pushing the boundaries of what a digital mixing console can accomplish. Building upon the storied history of the H3K and PRO Series consoles, the Heritage D reimagines the workflow for sound engineers. It's not just another Midas console; it's tactile. Equipped with a commanding 21” HD touch screen and an ultramodern Graphic User Interface (GUI) within easy reach, the Heritage D epitomizes a glimpse into the future. Intriguingly, it even introduces Channel AI—yes, Artificial Intelligence. This platform isn't static; it's designed for perpetual growth and evolution, nurtured by an impressive Midas team eager to enhance and constantly introduce new features. Rest assured, your investment in Heritage D is secure.

The Graviton Mk 2 Processing Engine

At the heart of every mixing console is the most important part – Audio. Overlooked by other manufacturers, we have always put sound at the top of our priority list. It was hard, almost impossible, but we improved on the legendary Midas digital sound with our new 64-bit summing mix engine with increased dynamic range. Driving a Midas has never been easier. The key to the Midas sound is in giving ultimate flexibility while still being delay compensated. Avoiding the dreaded comb filtering effect is very important. Many other consoles simply ignore this crucial part of the audio signal path.


The Flexi-Aux system gives the ability to send aux to aux for group or stem-style mixing. Now you can smash a whole drum kit with parallel compression and feed it to artists in ear mix.

Variable Channel Phase

The new, intuitive, easy-to-use Variable Phase per channel allows sound sources to be blended seamlessly, with high or low phase changes to mix signals in ways never achievable before.

Tap Off Points

Midas has unveiled new tap-off points on channels, enabling signal transmission from any juncture within the signal path. This empowers greater flexibility in sending signals to the stage before undergoing any processing, all the while preserving the essential Midas magic required for the main mix. Breaking new ground, Midas introduces post-insert fader points, providing an unprecedented level of control. Moreover, all processing options can now be effortlessly rearranged by a simple drag-and-drop interface, allowing you to customize the processing order exactly as desired. This marks a pivotal moment in console customization, giving users unparalleled control and flexibility.

Instant recall allows you to use different settings for soundcheck and the all-important big show.

Channel AI ™

The HD96-24 marks a groundbreaking era where a console actively listens to your audio source, identifies it, and offers suggested Gain, EQ, Compression, and Gate settings as needed. Presented through an intuitive user interface, it grants you the autonomy to select and implement preferred segments from the suggested settings. With Adaptive presets, defining your desired sound style becomes effortless, leaving Channel AI™ to seamlessly handle the rest—a transformational feature that redefines your audio experience. The development journey of the HD96-24 encapsulates a single mantra: "We Listened." This console is not just a technological leap; it's a direct response to user feedback, shaping an innovative tool that fills a void and evolves the way we engage with audio in profound ways.
