‘Cobalt is designed with sound engineers in mind’
Europe - Midas Consoles has launched Cobalt, a high-channel count, pocket-sized USB3 audio protocol converter.
“Cobalt is designed with sound engineers in mind. It is more than just a USB converter; it is a game-changing solution that combines power, portability, and connectivity for those seeking professional-grade recording without breaking the bank,” says Midas.
With Cobalt - which debuted at ISE 2024 - users can record and virtual soundcheck up to 192 channels all through a single Neutrik locking USB C connection, direct into PC or Mac. This not only streamlines the set-up but also allows audio professionals ‘to carry a powerhouse of functionality right in their pockets’.
The built-in sample rate converters further elevate Cobalt's capabilities, enabling operation at either 48kHz or 96kHz without compromising the channel count. This flexibility is crucial for those who demand high-quality audio without sacrificing compatibility, proving a new pinnacle for audio consoles.
With its built-in Ethernet tunnel, Cobalt allows direct communication to a variety of audio applications such as Reaper via protocols such at OSC, expanding its compatibility with different ecosystems for the diverse demands of modern audio production. This feature will ensure that engineers can seamlessly integrate Cobalt into their existing setups allowing them to navigate the complexities of audio production with ease.
