Takida Tours Scandinavia With Midas PRO2 At FOH And Monitors

Takida’s FOH engineer Håkan Esbjörnsson with the Midas PRO2.

Swedish rock band Takida has embarked on its sellout spring tour of Scandinavia, The Burning Heart, with Midas PRO2 consoles being used for FOH and monitors.

Leading Scandinavian hire company Starlight, which purchased the PRO2s from Midas’ Swedish distributor Intersonic, is the first company in the region to use a dual system on a tour.

“Overall the system is very stable, and I really feel I can fully trust it,” says monitor engineer Robert Egnelius. “The POPulation and MCA groups are two excellent features I use a lot, they make accessing channels very quick and effective.”

“As well as being easy to use, the PR02 sounds very good and has wonderful EQ and dynamics. I like the patching, and the fact that I have control over what to patch to the outputs. The assignable XLRs on the network effectively give me 16 XLR outputs on the control surface and another 16 on the stagebox.”

“The band themselves have commented that both the monitor and FOH sound is excellent with the Midas PRO2s.”

Takida are touring in support of their fourth studio album The Burning Heart, which topped the Swedish charts on release. The tour runs until the end of April.
