WesAudio MIMAS NG500 500 Series Analog Compressor with Digital Recall

NEW IMPLEMENTATION OF A LEGEND.

Since year 1968 this style of compression dominated hundreds of recordings and to this day it is most commonly used signal processor in the industry. Lightning-fast attack and release times became main companions of audio engineers. WesAudio proudly presents _MIMAS – ng500 series implementation of legendary FET compressor. This time along with classic analog sound You will receive most demanded feature in audio industry – DIGITAL RECALL.

MAIN FEATURES

MIMAS – CARNHILL TRANSFORMERS are foundation of its sound.

First and most important point – _MIMAS is fully balanced (IN/OUT) analog device with +24dBu of headroom.

Regardless its digital control nature, fully analog signal path provides top
FET compression sound.

FOUR RATIO SETTINGS AND LEGENDARY “ALL BUTTONS IN”.

MIMAS provides selectable classic ratios of 4:1 and 8:1 for compression, and 12:1 and 20:1 for limiting.

If more aggresive type of compression is needed, “All Buttons In” mode is right there to use it. Once again we would like to state loud and clear – it is analog compressor, so is “All Buttons In” MODE!

SATURATION MODE ONE KNOB to add color and character to your tracks without using compression

Classic implementations of 1176 provide functionality to disable compression and still add color and character to signals. _MIMAS is no different, however instead of using INPUT and OUTPUT knobs to create desirable effect, You can do it with ONE knob, which configures amount of saturation affecting a signal.

500 SERIES and ng500 SERIES COMPATIBLE

Regardless its extensions, _MIMAS is fully compatible unit with 500 series standard (*). Digital features can be enabled through front panel mini USB socket.

ng500 – Next Generation 500 series is a physical extension to 500 series, which makes _MIMAS fully compatible with _TITAN frame – this allows to control all devices in chassis through one USB/Ethernet cable.

HARDWARE A/B

Even using _MIMAS as pure analog signal processor you can easily switch between two parallel settings with a magic of a simple buttons.

TOTAL RECALL AND PLUGIN CONTROL

Along with classic analog compressor You receive most demanded feature in audio industry – TOTAL RECALL.

Full plugin control through VST2/VST3/AU/AAX/AAX DSP – makes _MIMAS compatible with most, if not all major DAWs.

Total integration with your beloved DAW will change your workflow forever!

ANALOG AUTOMATION

I’m sure all of us wanted to use different device settings based on song section. Now it is possible! Just draw automation lines in your DAW and your analog device will follow!

And remember, you can use four touch sensitive encoders to record automation TO your DAW!

Other feartures:

  • Fully digitally controlled analog circuit,
  • +24dBu of headroom,
  • Digital recall can be acheived by connecting unit directly through front panel mini USB socket, or using it inside _TITAN chassis,
  • Dedicated stereo plugin to manage two devices at the same time,
  • Digital sidechain – it is possible to send any track from your DAW as side chain signal to the compressor – It is enough to configure side chain feature in connected plugin,
  • 4 touch sensitive encoders (allow to record automation of all parameters to DAW in real time),
  • True bypass,
  • Felectable VU(in/out)/GR meter (Switch can be accessed on the plugin),
  • Free software and firmware upgrades.

WesAudio TITAN 10-slot NG500 Recall Chassis

TITAN is complete recall system designed to provide total integration with your beloved analogue equipment. It extends 500 series connector with additional pins where modules can be designed to support digital recall or any other vendor specific functionalities. This extension is part of new open standard “ng500” – “Next Generation 500 series” which allows other manufacturers to design and implement digitally controlled analog devices.

MAIN FEATURES

HIGH END LINEAR POWER SUPLY

Linear power supply capable to deliver 5A of power will bring sound of your units to the next level!

10 SLOTS FOR 500-SERIES or ng500-SERIES MODULES(*)

_TITAN can host standarized 500 series module (Please read Important Note below).

Of course it was designed to recall up to 10 units with signle USB or Ethernet connection!

(*)Important note about 500 series extension : ng500

CONTROL ALL MODULES THROUGH ONE CONNECTION!

  • TITAN allows to control/recall all hosted modules through one connection:
  • 1) USB – for direct connection with your workstation.
  • 2) Ethernet – dedicated LAN connection to access all devices in your local network.

REMOTELY CONTROLED STEREO LINKS

TITAN provides simple standalone application to change status of stereo links between modules.

No more problems with accessing your chassis configuration!

IAC – INTERNAL AUDIO CONNECTOR

At slot number 10, _TITAN implements special connector, which routes all audio signals from and to, slots 1 – 8.

This allows future integration with audio interface modules, analog summing modules or patchbays.

INPUT source for any slot is implemented through analog relays, and it is configurable through standalone application. This prevents two different signal sources to be routed to the same module.

Features summary:

  • 10 SLOTS FOR 500-SERIES or ng500-SERIES MODULES(*),
  • HIGH END LINEAR POWER SUPLY capable to deliver 5A of power,
  • CONTROL/RECALL ALL MODULES THROUGH ONE CONNECTION,
  • OPEN SPECIFICATION (**) – documentation and software framework including communication drivers for
    any Vendor that would like to adopt to this standard,
  • REMOTELY CONTROLED STEREO LINKS through standalone application,
  • IAC – INTERNAL AUDIO CONNECTOR – for future integration with audio interface, summing modules or patchbays

Features:

  • Stereo links are integrated with modules, and pressing “Link” button on modules which supports GCon protocol (e.g. _Mimas) sets stereo link on the _Titan.
  • Remote firmware upgrade – _Titan & all modules inside can be upgraded remotely through USB or Ethernet connection.
  • XLR sockets in/out for each slot.
  • Internal stereo link switches which can be also managed through GConManager standalone application.
  • Power mode switch – 115V/230V.
