Midas Verona 320Verona
is, quite simply, the desk the industry has been asking Midas for.
It takes the concept of the ultra-compact Venice, Midas' best selling console of all time, and elevates it to the next level. Verona
delivers more inputs, more features, along with legendary Midas quality in a package that revolutionizes the 8 buss market. Visually, the console looks stunning; despite it's physically modest proportions, it feels like a full-sized Midas to work on; and of course, most importantly of all, it sounds as good as it looks.
So what exactly is Verona?
Firstly, it's a truly professional desk aimed squarely at the professional market. Mechanically and electronically Verona
is much more than just another 8-bus console. If you are primarily motivated by audio quality, rigid mechanical construction, long-term reliability and high residual values, then it is THE 8-buss console. The Verona
series consists of 5 models ranging from 24 up to a massive 56 inputs, and incorporates all the features and components that make it look, sound and feel like a true Midas. It has been designed from the ground up by the same team responsible for the XL4 and the Heritage Series consoles, including the industry-standard Heritage 3000.
Anyone who has ever bought a Venice and loved it is going to be captivated by the Verona
- you get more inputs, more features and that all-important Midas quality. Available as an install or touring package the Verona
will handle anything from houses of worship to broadcast / recording, theater to corporate applications, and of course concert sound.
Features & Specifications:
Compact Console - with Big Console Attitude:
Verona delivers more inputs, more features, along with legendary Midas quality in a package that revolutionizes the 8 buss market. Visually, the console looks stunning; despite it's physically modest proportions, it feels like a full-sized Midas to work on; and of course, most importantly of all, it sounds as good as it looks.
The Verona is available in 5 models: Verona 240, 320, 400, 480 and 560
Superior Midas Sound:
Verona uses a brand new premium performance mic amp design, with very high CMR performance providing simple, noise free interconnections. High performance audio summing busses are used throughout and all main outputs are fully balanced with high current capability for noise free interconnections.
Highly accurate and musical swept 4-band EQ on every mono channel. The stereo channel is the same variety with swept mids. There is a switched high pass filter on every channel plus swept frequency on mono inputs.
Multi Function Modules:
Verona includes 8 multi function inputs as standard. These inputs can be mono mic, stereo line or both. The stereo line jacks are for use with either balanced or unbalanced line level signals and are protected from 48V phantom. The mono mic amp input incorporates a phase switch and a front panel switched insert.
8 Aux Outputs:
2 Aux busses with individual Pre/Post Fader switches and 6 Aux busses with global master Pre/Post fader assign.
8 Audio Sub Groups:
Assigned from individual routing buttons (pre/post pan) from the input channel.
Spacial Image System (SIS™):
Spatial Image System utilizes a central cluster with a left-right system to form three discrete channels. Available from channels and groups.
4 mute groups:
Easy to program, easy to re-call mutes created from inputs. The soft mute circuit has silent operation and LED indication.
Front panel switchable insert points on each mic input.
12 x 4 Matrix:
Fed from the Groups (or Auxes dependent on c/o switch), LR & C and external input on rotary controls. The external input can be individually routed directly to LR & C if required.
Unique Module Construction:
Semi modular construction in 8 channel blocks. Modules blocks feature a structural sub chassis carrying 2 PCBs and a separate (non structural) dress facia.
100mm monorail self cleaning faders
The current sharing, voltage sensing, auto-switching PSU's are internally mounted. The "no hum" design saves the need for external racking and cabling. Verona 240 and 320 come with one internal PSU whilst Verona 400, 480 and 560 come with two internal PSU's. Each frame includes an external connection port for an optional external PSU.
The Verona can be shipped as a touring package which includes flightcase, Littlites and dustcover. For those of you who will be using the Verona in a fixed installation it can be shipped as an install package, without the expense of a flight case.
Due to Verona's intelligent design the desk can be loaded with as many multifunction modules as you require. Each module has eight multi function inputs.
Every Verona console has backup PSU capability. Verona 400, 480 and 560 models have redundancy as standard. Internal PSU's are auto-voltage sensing, current-sharing and auto-changeover.
All Verona consoles have a connector for an optional external PSU.
Verona Spatial Image System™:
The benefits of S.I.S.™ can only be realized with a console that is built for the task.Conventional consoles can be used for three channel mixing, but the methods for doing so are complicated and unorthodox, forcing the engineer to work in unaccustomed ways, limiting creative flexibility, making use by visiting operators impractical.
When using Midas S.I.S.™ capable mixing consoles the pan controls may be switched for either conventional or S.I.S.™ operation on each input channel. In S.I.S.™ mode the center position of the control routes the input to a separate channel output, in this case it pans from left to center or right to center. Back up vocalists can be panned slightly into the center cluster to improve intelligibility while keeping the featured vocal front and center'. Musical instruments can be placed in a conventional mix then easily switched to the center for solos. In theatrical productions S.I.S.™ gives the ability to pan an actor's voice across three channels following their on stage movements. In stereo only productions the center output can be used to provide a mono to sub base feed activating a single L + R to Center' switch.
