Specifically designed for live sound, the superb audio performance, and the addition of the FireWire digital audio interface means that the VeniceF is equally at home in recording and mixdown applications.

VeniceF is much more than a compact live audio console. VeniceF is the platform for a completely integrated audio mixing, recording and processing package - thanks to its FireWire* digital audio interface which is capable of supporting up to 32 x 32 channels of high-quality, 24-bit audio.The hybrid VeniceF bridges the gap between analogue and digital audio consoles, and offers the user the ease-of-use, warmth, feel and zero-latency of analogue, combined with the power, choice and flexibility of outboard digital processing.

From the VeniceF’s horizontal fader panel, through the class-leading parametric EQ filters, to the latest expression of that legendary MIDAS mic preamp, this is a console without compromise.

  • Overload-tolerant MIDAS mic preamp with polarity switch, high-pass filter and -20 dB pad
  • Industry-acclaimed 4-band swept MIDAS EQ with fully parametric hi-mid and lo-mid filters
  • Analog or FireWire input select switch for all mic channels, allowing “virtual sound check” and record mixdown
  • 6 auxes with individual buss pre/post fade switching and routing to FireWire
  • 7 x 2 matrix with stereo split switching and routing to FireWire
  • Individual phantom power for each mic input (including stereo channels)
  • Stereo channels have fully-featured dual mic preamps with individual left and right gain control
  • Analog and FireWire direct outputs with pre/post EQ switching
  • Discrete stereo master buss with individual routing to FireWire plus discrete mono master bus
  • 4 audio subgroups with fader flip to auxes and routing to FireWire
  • Highly efficient integral auto-ranging switch mode power supply
  • Rugged, roadworthy, tour proven construction with 3-year warranty

Digi-log - FireWire
VeniceF’s FireWire interface can be used with any computer fitted with a 1394 port and is effectively a multichannel digital audio link. This interface connects directly to your computer and allows the use of third party audio processing software in conjunction with the console. Applications include multi-track recording from the VeniceF's digital direct outputs, software-generated FX processors driven from aux sends or direct outputs, and your favorite plugins inserted on input channel FireWire send/returns. All with a heart of pure MIDAS.

Although the FireWire interface will work with nearly all computer-based audio processing software, every VeniceF package includes a free 60-day trial version of REASON, by Propellerhead. This software suite includes multi-track recording, virtual racks full of FX and dynamics processing, and even a software mixer, which can be patched in parallel with the analogue VeniceF permitting full external digital processing of each VeniceF input channel.

A/D and D/A conversion is achieved using techniques and advanced filter designs developed for the industry-leading MIDAS XL8 digital mixing system. This ensures that the conversion process is transparent and free from any undesirable digital artifacts – preserving that unmistakable MIDAS sound right into the digital domain.

Buss Structure
The bus structure comprises 6 aux sends, 4 subgroups, and stereo and mono master outputs, plus an additional mono bus and a 7 x 2 matrix. All bus outputs feature XLR connectors and insert capability. Routing options are comprehensive and flexible. VeniceF has individual routing to groups, all 6 aux sends are individually-switchable pre or post fade, and the two aux buses designated as monitor (foldback) sends are also switchable pre/post EQ on an individual input channel basis.

•4 groups
•Stereo master outputs
•Mono Buss
•7 x 2 matrix

Mono Input
VeniceF and VeniceU mono inputs pack a host of features, starting with the indispensable MIDAS mic pre, still crafted from discrete components, rather than the cheaper IC option. The 15 mm gain pot is surrounded by a quartet of switches: +48 V, -20 dB pad, polarity reverse and 80 Hz hi-pass. A further pair of switches select analogue or digital (FW) input and analogue or digital (FW) direct out pre or post EQ. Switches with LED status indicators are provided for insert and EQ in/out.

The equaliser section is an updated MIDAS XL3 design, featuring 4 bands of swept MIDAS EQ, with the addition of variable bandwidth on the 2 midrange filters. All input channels, groups and masters feature high-precision 100mm faders.

•+48 V
•-20 dB pad
•80 Hz hi-pass
•FireWire input and direct out
•100mm faders

Stereo Input
Stereo inputs have 2 mic and 2 line inputs each. Mic inputs feature separate gain for left and right inputs, and the same mic amp functions as the mono inputs. Both mic and line inputs can be used simultaneously, with the line inputs routed direct to masters, while the mic inputs route via the channel. Stereo channels have 4-band fixed frequency EQ, and a sum-to-mono switch.

•+48 V
•-20 dB pad
•80 Hz hi-pass
•FireWire input and direct out
•100mm faders

The 2-channel 7 x 2 output matrix has level controls which source from the 4 groups, Left, Right and Mono outputs. Each channel features level output control, mute and solo switches with LED indication. There are additional switches which split the L & R contributions to the matrix (default is a sum of L & R) and to send the matrix outputs to the FireWire interface instead of the L & R mix. mBoth Matrix channels feature balanced XLR output connectors and single TRS insert points.
