On the Move
The best part about tablet computing is the incredible way theyve brought the power of complete mobility to the art of making music. With the X18s beautifully laid-out top panel, all you need to do is plug in your mic and line level sources, then mix them from anywhere you like via the intuitive, free remote control app on your tablet.

MIDAS The Legend in Sound Quality
Ever since its formation in the 1970s, MIDAS has had a long history of innovation and leadership in the world of audio mixing consoles. Employed by the most famous touring acts and installations world-wide, legendary MIDAS consoles such as the XL4 and Heritage H3000 quickly became industry standards.

MIDAS has earned their impeccable reputation due to their no-compromise approach for audio and build quality and in particular for their Award-winning Mic Preamps which are considered by industry experts as the industry's best sounding designs. Building on this legacy, the XL8 and PRO Series of Live Mixing Systems continue this great heritage of Award-winning audio quality.

Wirelessly Inspired
Designed for the ultimate in mobility, the X18 comes with an integrated Wi-Fi module for direct control of the mixers functions without the need to setup and configure an external router. The X18 gives you the freedom to focus on your mix, while allowing you to move about the venue to experience what every part of the audience is hearing. Plus you can adjust live monitor wedges from the artists perspective or better yet, let them mix their own IEMs or floor monitors via their own tablets.

Recording Simplicity
The incredibly fast and comprehensive 18 x 18 channel, bi-directional USB interface also makes the X18 an amazingly powerful digital mixing solution for recording directly to your iPad or PC. Whether youre making rock history in the studio, or you want to capture intimate live performances its never been easier to record stunning tracks with exceptional clarity.

Virtual FX Rack
The onboard virtual FX Rack provides access to four true-stereo (8 mono), multi-effects processors including delay, chorus, dynamics plus it can run production-quality, true-stereo reverbs concurrently with 31-band EQ, all without the need for any additional hardware.

You can select any combination of high-end simulations of legendary studio effects, such as the Lexicon 480L and PCM70, as well as the EMT250 and Quantec QRS reverbs. Onboard processing means your computer doesnt have to do the heavy lifting during a mixing session with DAW plug ins as the X18 has a whole studio of FX under it's hood.

Seeing is Believing
The X18 allows you to achieve new levels of EQ finesse thanks to its 100-band Real Time Analyzer, which is built into every input channel and bus EQ. Visual feedback built into the control app allows you to see and make fast, surgical adjustments to frequencies in need of a little boost or a cut. Youll wonder how you ever EQd without it!

The Easy Way to Send Sound
ULTRANET connectivity allows you to send up to 16 digital sources over Cat 5e cable to other ULTRANET compatible gear such as P16-M personal monitors or the new iQ loudspeakers from TURBOSOUND. Send any of the X18s input sources through one lightweight, easy-to-deploy Ethernet cable to a P16-D distribution hub or to individual P16-M monitor mixers. This powerful tool makes it easy for individual performers to create their own more me mix and frees you up to put on your best show.

In addition to the Main LR Outs for Front of House, 6 Aux buses with inserts, full dynamics and 6-band parametric EQ are provided for dialing in perfect monitor mixes. Connectivity is made simple with 6 TRS outputs for Aux buses, 2 XLR Main Outs, as well as stereo RCA sockets and phones connection with dedicated Level control.

Closest StoreQuébec, Quebec
I am a sound man with 1000+ show and needed a samll digital mixer for a projet. So with this X18 almost every need I may have dream have meet. You have 4 effect that you can add on FX sends or as insert on Bus or track. Some like the compressors may be used as dual A-B so one on a channel and the other on any other channel. That's the good point. The bad point is that is you work with parallèle compression on the bus with insert this will induce a delay from the plugin. Very small delay but will create a phase effect on the sound direct vs bused. But Hey! at this price you can't have everything. Saying that, unlike the X32,M32 legacy you don't have delay adjustment on track or busses. Sound really good and the effect works great. quite preamp too!
