By PSW Staff • June 19, 2012 The new Midas PRO1 digital console (larger images below) Midas has launched the latest addition to its PRO Series of digital consoles, the Midas PRO1 live audio system, at InfoComm 2012 in Las Vegas, booth C12149. The PRO1 breaks new ground for Midas digital consoles in several areas. Sporting an all-new, lightweight aluminum frame, the PRO1 is the first stand-alone Midas digital console. Compatible with the complete range of Midas digital consoles, the PRO1 allows existing show files to be loaded and worked on straight away. It is easy to configure and operate, and will appeal both to engineers who are new to Midas digital and those familiar with the platform. Midas brand development manager Richard Ferriday states: “The PRO1 opens new territory for Midas on a number of different levels. New manufacturing materials and techniques, the first stand-alone Midas digital console, with comprehensive I/O on the back, and a previously undreamt-of price point. “The PRO1 will be accessible to free-lance engineers, small music venues, anyone who actually cares about audio quality, reliability and portability.” View the CTW InfoComm 2012 Coverage of the Midas Pro1: CTW InfoComm 2012 Coverage: Midas Pro1 from Mike Sessler on Vimeo.
