Midas Consoles Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg) reports a healthy first wave of PRO2 and PRO2C sales, with systems going into rental, worship installation, touring and TV production applications.
The first PRO2 into the region went to Boerema Geluidstechniek whose owners, Ton Boerema and audio engineer Auke Meijer, decided to invest in a system due to its audio quality and the broad take up of Midas digital.
The Free Baptist Church Bethel based in Drachten, NL, has become the first installation into a place of worship for the system worldwide. Supplied by John van Zeist from Hecla Professional AV , the PRO2 will be used by Bethel technicians for weekend services with an average of several thousand Free Baptists each Sunday, and was chosen for its sonic quality and easy of use.
A total of three systems – a PRO2 and a PRO2C - have gone to Amsterdam-based rental company Peak Audio. Owner Will-Jan Pielage and manager Casper van Aalst are already familiar with the Midas digital sound because Peak Audio is using two XL8s for the ongoing Marco Borsato tour. They have chosen to expand their inventory with the PRO2 systems because it uses the same technology as the XL8. One PRO2 will be deployed on the Youp van‘t Hek theatre tour and the other two for TV productions.
In addition, Hebron Harvest Ministries church and the De Flint theatre in Amersfoort have both ordered PRO2Cs, Flagey Brussels is to install a PRO2 and a PRO2C into its theatre and conference facilities, and music venue Poppodium Gigant has also ordered one of each system.
