MIDAS PRO X Selected For Philadelphia’s Wawa Welcome America

MIDAS‘ flagship console, the PRO X, was put to use as the 65-piece Philly POPS, opened festivities for Wawa Welcome America, Philadelphia’s citywide Fourth of July celebrations.

Against the dramatic backdrop of Independence Hall, the POPS performed a lively score of well-known tunes to the town’s crowd, which gathered for one of the main highlights of the week-long patriotic festival.

Andre Houser, chief engineer of Houser Audio, has overseen the sound design and served as front of house engineer for The Philly POPS over the last eight years as the orchestra has grown to serve an audience of over 100,000 per year. 

“The MIDAS PRO X is the perfect solution for the Philly POPS. In choosing a console I looked at preamps, input count, and functionality. The PRO X gives me a great preamp that makes the strings very warm and lush and gives an unamplified feel to the orchestra. The 168 inputs allows me to touch every instrument, and the functionality lets me get to any one of those 168 inputs quickly. It was the natural choice.”
