  I don't understand why Behringer and all the 2000 to $5,000 consoles don't Supply an HDMI output where you could hook up your own. Video monitor, that will be a wonderful thing. I guess they're trying to save that $3.89 it might cost to upgrade to a bigger screen.
    I can almost guarantee that will one of the upgrades on the new console

The $3.00 HDMI port isn't the issue; the work is coding that functionality.  What does it do?  Is it just a mirror of the onboard screen?  Is it a second screen?  Is it touch-sensitive?  Multi-touch or single-touch?  Screen resolution scaling?

Adding features in software is more difficult than us users often give manufacturers credit for.

Doesn't the screen look like Soundcraft V1 software,  this smells fishy to me.  Does anyone know Pope they can give him a buzz and get the scoop?

The screen looks nothing like Soundcraft Vi.  Zero.

Thanks for clearing that up Steve, I know you are huge Soundcraft shop.  Hopefully the picture is not photoshopped and we will have a new offering from Midas to consider next year.

It's probably time for a new Midas console, but if it's called "Heritage D" that might imply it's a digital replacement for the analog Heritage. The analog Heritage was a $80,000 console. I think it may be to get better traction in the touring market where the Heritage 3000 ruled than they have been able to get with the ProX. I would not expect it to be a sub $5,000 console. Or sub $20,000.

Once again, live recording not withstanding, if one my clients said that, I probably don't want that gig.
Tell that to all the big name Broadway sound designers, and Las Vegas style production show designers that are making piles of cash designing systems and shows that run at 96k and even 192k.


Once I get my remote recording truck built out, Ill be able to do 40 channels at 96k or 64 at 48k (or 48 channels if I decide to buy a third MY16-AUD card for my DM2000 to get that last 8 channels at 96k).


Its all about options. Yes, I can do your gig at 96k with 40 channels, or l can do 64 at 48k. Which would you like?

I find myself in the middle of the 96KHz issue.   I have performed through a DM2000 but have never run one, but this desk is the same generation as my 01v96 boards.  My current boards are Allen & Heath GLD mixers that only run at 48KHz, but they sure do sound a lot better than my 01v96 boards at 48KHz or 96KHz. 

If the client specifically asks for 96KHz, then by all means give it to them.  If they want it to sound good, maybe thats not the only factor.

Which outboard preamps are you using?  My memory is fuzzy, but I seem to remember some differences in sound between the two generations of outboard preamps - the AD8HR and the other one.  One was part of the PM1D platform I think, and one was newer?

I asked around and got the word that are they are simply "sold out" due to the recent discount campaign and that they can not produce as fast as required, hence the backorders...

Who would have thought that being popular could be a bad thing...

Possibly related... something strange is going on with the Tribe, for sure.

My Full Compass rep offered me the M32 bundle deal back in October (discounted M32 with the free DL32). I bit on it and was told it would arrive in early November. I also ordered another X32 Rack to have for small "talking-head" gigs. I was told that would arrive "within a few days."

Just heard from my rep today... the M32 bundle isn't due to arrive until late January. And the X32 Rack is due to arrive "maybe in December."

He also indicated that it's taking forever to get repair parts from Tribe. I wonder what's going on over there?

Their synthesizer venture is having the same problems, and they've also just got cheaper, sub 300/$300 for a minimoog clone is nuts.
