MR18 if you can believe it!
« on: December 20, 2016, 07:10:06 AM »
Yes the link is to the Midas website. Hoax anyone. Wouldn't be the first time for Music Group, remember the X16? Another marketing test? Really Uli!

From the info provided the only change would be the Midas Pro preamps and loss of Hi-Z's. Not enough for the use it's being put to. Now if they added 1Gb Ethernet and Dante it would be another story. Loose that WiFi in the process I wouldn't miss it. Oh yeah that would be the Midas touch along with a decent manual.

Looks like a new low for Midas, but they are for real!
http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MR12
http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MR18
Wonder how long it will take for distribution to get these?

Well that didn't last long Sweetwater removed the web-page but Facebook still has info that they existed.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/behringerxair
$349 for the MR12 and $899 for the MR18.
Sound like a well organized campaign!  ;D

Wow!

The iPad app they depict looks a bit different than the X AIR iPad app. If it's a real representation, it actually looks a little nicer IMHO.  :)

Maybe the new Version ? Some say it's ugly.
If you can handle the language here is another article on the MR series.

That's all "Greek" to me! Sorry couldn't resist!  ;)

From my quick look at the picture of the app, it did look kinda cool. But I am soooo spoiled for Master Fader though. I hope Mackie "steps up" in the near future with a revised version of the DL. But I won't hold my breath too long.

Thank you for the link just the same though. I appreciate it!  :)

It's German but what the H.... More leaked info on Midas. The real Midas probably to be released at NAMM 2017 called the Heritage D. Article here.   https://www.gearnews.com/midas-heritage-d-96-photo-leak-new-x32-pro-series/#comment-208   
Maybe Behringer can finish what they introduced a while ago.  >:D  V2 for X-Air.

Now that it's official on Midas's web site you can get a glimpse of the new iPad app.

Some minor changes to the PC/Mac/Linux apps as well.
