Looks like a mixer. It clearly has recording facilities, which is good...

Maybe a new X18-ish (the one made for iPad) mixer on steroids?

Looks like somebody reading the electricity meter. Nice to see the video when it's finished.

Has 3xAES50 by the looks of things so it's a serious product.
Looking from the video I/O seems to be, 3x AES50, DANTE, USB Audio, StageCOM, Wing Live?, Aux, Local, USB Drive, and possibly some others that aren't visible.

I really, really hope this is useful for studio work as well as live. To help any of you eagle-eyed folks out there I've grabbed some stills from the video:

There is rather a lot of it seemingly :o

Yeah, it does seem to have a lot going on. I hope it's primarily a mixer with recording facilities.

Personally I have absolutely zero interest in any of the fancy processing, and I really have no love of touch-screen interfaces, but for a lot of people this could be the answer to a dream.

Then it's all about price...

Oh, and here's hoping it's compatible with the P16D and clutch of P16Ms I've just invested in!! :headbang: :lol:

I would have thought so as the HD-96 has ultranet and it is also used on the Turbosound PA speakers amongst a few other products.
Plus it's a relatively easy standard to implement being essentially 2 192kHz AES/EBU streams.

I'm thinking back to last month when the Midas HD96 was announced...

That is one mighty device. Trickle-down technology?

The words 'fader wing' mentioned at 7:43. All fascinating stuff!

Only eight simultaneous mic inputs?

I think that's the nature of this beast (and the X32 in its smaller forms) - the mixer becomes a hub for whatever connectivity you choose outside it.

Yup, how many mic inputs do you need on a FOH desk? Surely most of the I/O needs to be on stage (or in the live room).

Yep, that was my first thought - only 8? Then I made the same jump to 'stagebox' and it makes sense.
Just waiting for pricing now...

Everyone else has covered it really, but it's pretty unusual these days for consoles to have more than about 8-16 channels of local I/O. Smaller desks are usually a bit more all-in-one style, but most large format stuff runs everything remotely.

Right outside my needs, but looks very nice. Be interesting to see what reviews it gets.

I'm just smarting that it seems I can't have Dante and SD card recording at the same time.

I really, really hope I'm wrong...

Only eight local, onboard mic inputs.... but up to 144 remote stage-box mics inputs...

Would that be enough for Sir? :lol:
