The Midas PRO2 and PRO2C live audio systems take the audio quality, performance and values of the top-end Midas XL8, and make them available at a price point well below the general-purpose mixing console average.

Essentially the same console, the PRO2C has eight fewer input faders and the smaller frame. Both consoles share the same components and finish as the rest of the PRO Series, including the Alex Cooper–designed mic preamps, A/D converters and daylight-viewable screens.

The PRO2 features three modes of channel navigation: FOH Normal, MON Normal and Advanced, allowing engineers to mix a large number of inputs on a compact control surface. Putting a PRO2/PRO2C into Advanced navigation mode allows for MCA (Master Control Association) groups. These operate in a similar way to the VCA groups, but are specific to the selected bus. When the PRO2/PRO2C is in Advanced navigation mode with MCA navigation engaged, the MCA faders control the contributions of their members only to the currently selected bus. When combined with the "hide unassigned channels" feature, this is a powerful mixing tool.

The PRO2s/PRO2Cs come loaded with console templates. All Midas digital console showfiles are compatible with all Midas digital consoles, allowing a show written on a PR02/PRO2C to run on a PR03, PRO6, PRO9, XL8 and vice versa.

The Midas PRO2/PRO2C standard system comprises a control surface and one 5U DL251 19-inch rack I/O unit, connected by a networked audio and data system. The network carries both proprietary control data and open-architecture AES50 digital audio, and uses standard Cat-5E or Cat-6 cabling and connectors.
