Midas PRO Series Consoles
Next course: Wednesday 22nd March 2017
Sound engineers and systems engineers designing, configuring and mixing on systems deploying Midas PRO series consoles.
If you are a potential digital console purchaser, a freelance sound engineer, broadcast engineer, recording engineer, a venue or church engineer… come and see what this mixer range can do for you.
Midas PRO series consoles enjoy near legendary status as industry leading digital audio platforms and form the backbone of SFL’s production and hire inventory.
This course introduces engineers to the latest consoles in the PRO series family, including PRO1*, PRO2/PRO2C* and PRO-X*, along with Midas’ broad range of I/O interfaces and the cutting edge Neutron DSP engine. Students will develop a comprehensive appreciation of the PRO series family, learn how to operate and configure the PRO series consoles, and design and connect large multi-console systems.
During this seminar we simulate an event environment with live multi-track recordings. Once the basic console functionality has been explained, you will be mixing live shows in the classroom!
