Midas F32 - Windows 10 Firewire problem

Hi. first ever post.
the guitarist/sound guy in my band recently bought a Midas F32 console, and is having trouble connecting it to Pro Tools via firewire.
his laptop is running 64bit Windows 10, and he's connecting via 6 to 6 pin firewire cable. the Midas Firewire Control Panel program will pick up the console intermittently but then lose it again, which leads me to assume that this is not a software problem, but that's just a guess.
if anybody has solved a similar problem, or needs more information to try to solve this one, all relevant replies appreciated!

"Midas Lab" Build Forum

Hello everyone,

I'm building a new little glorified low budget home studio in my basement.
This thread is to document the process and to get advice from you pro's when I'm not sure on something.

I'm going a little bit beyond standard basement construction as this space will eventually be a normal basement if I ever chose to sale the house, so I kept that in mind.

Basic framing construction has started.

Midas Venice and Live - Questions!

So as part of 2013's plan to get OTB as much as possible I got myself a Midas Venice F24. It's my first ever mixing console and I wanted to make sure to get the best I could.

It is awesome. I'm running a 12U Euro set-up into it plus a Tanzbar and a few synths. As a purely analog solution it is great. But I don't have the same kind of hardware effects as I do plugins and so I want to make use of the firewire with Live.

The Midas Dual pre/eq

I do a reasonable amount of live work. Midas as you would all know is a live sound reinforcement leader. Very expensive. And i rarely get to work with them.

Just read bout the XL42 rack mount dual channel pre and eq.

And i yet cannot get myself to afford an API.

hehehe... Just wondering what magic ?

Recording with a Midas Venice


Need some help or suggestions.

I'm only going to record hardware synths. (all controlled by midi)
Plan is to only use outboard effects and the
eq on my Venice and just record the stereo
out from the mixer to my soundcard.

With this approach, how do I connect my active monitors?

Soundcard is a emu tracker pre usb. 2.0

Midas Venice, Toft ATB, or Trident 8T

I'm wanting to get a small analog console for my studio. I've used a Ramsa DA7 for around 8 years, it died, and I want to move on. I can get a Midas Venice 320 for less than $3700 shipped. The other consoles I'm thinking about (Trident and Toft) are in range budge-wise as well. I am just wanting some feedback/recommendations/opinions... Thanks. Just trying to come to a conclusion SOON.

Midas Venice 160 Pricing

Hey guys.

I'm squirrelling away my pennies for one of these and I see prices that are all over the map!

A guy on ebay sells them new for 2300 which seems too good to be true.

I see online the retail is somewhere around 3400, but I'm not sure.

I have a quote from my favorite tube guy who carries these for 2995 plus tax. I'd like to buy it from him.

Does that sound reasonable?

Thanks in advance.
