The Swedish company’s Record software – which will operate in conjunction with almost any FireWire-equipped Mac or PC – is to be included in all new Midas VeniceF consoles.
The recently-launched VeniceF mixing console features the full functionality and sound quality of the Midas XL3 EQ and filter section, along with Midas mic preamps, 100mm faders, increased channel and input count, a dual 7×2 matrix and a reorganised master section layout. The VeniceF’s 32×32 FireWire capability adds 32 channels of multitrack recording and playback (VeniceF 320) using any suitable FireWire-equipped computer, without the need for additional costly interfaces.
Although specifically designed for live sound, the VeniceF is also suitable for recording and remixing applications. Each Midas VeniceF console includes a free 60-day trial version of Record, which functions as a multitrack recording system, plug-in host and virtual FX rack. The software will operate in conjunction with almost any FireWire-equipped Mac or PC.
Leo Nathorst-Böös, Propellerhead product marketing manager, tells PSN-e: “For Propellerhead, Midas premium mixing consoles was a natural choice for a partner. The combination of Record and the Midas VeniceF consoles provides amazing new opportunities for live producers and engineers. At last, there’s a complete solution for effortlessly recording entire events – exactly as they sound on stage – through a state-of-the-art console into the breakthrough recording program that is Record. Not to mention the possibility to use Record as an ever-expandable effect rack during the performance. We’re very excited to see what musicians and live engineers will create with this game-changing combo.”
“For us, Record was an obvious choice,” said Midas Klark Teknik’s brand development manager Richard Ferriday. “Very early in our negotiations with Propellerhead, we realised we were dealing with a company who shared our passion for audio, our proclivity for an intuitive user-interface, and our commitment to provide a quality product. All a perfect match for VeniceF – you could almost call it synergy.”
