SSE Audio Group upgrades Midas desks to PRO X
Four of the hire firm's consoles – three PRO9s and a PRO6 – have been given the update, which includes the Neutron System Engine.
SSE Hire has upgraded its entire hire stock of Midas mixing systems to the PRO X with Neutron System Engine.
Four consoles in total – three PRO9s and a PRO6 – have benefitted from Midas’ PRO X upgrade package which allows users to upgrade their existing PRO3/6/9 consoles to the spec of a PRO X.
The upgrade kit consists of the Neutron System Engine, which contains four of Midas’ latest DSPs. Additionally, the console surface receives new fascia panels, internal cabling, clips, and the illuminated PRO X logo.
Operations manager Stefan Phillips commented: “Our Midas consoles are extremely popular, they’re rarely in the warehouse. For us this was an easy decision; we’ve basically got four brand new desks with the latest technology and software at a fraction of the cost of a complete new system. This also enables us to support any PRO X consoles we sell, making us a great outlet for Midas purchases."
“We always like to supply engineers with the very latest spec in terms of console technology. The PRO X has double the input channel count of the old PRO 9 and with the new Neutron Engine, the desk is a very capable tool for all eventualities,” added Phillips. “Having four of these consoles means that as a group we can supply from our own stock without the need to sub hire.”
All PRO3/6/9 consoles are eligible for the PRO X upgrade kit.
