Gorilla nightclub upgrades to Midas

Manchester city-centre entertainment hot spot Gorilla recently upgraded its front-of-house (FOH) mixing desk to a brand-new Midas PRO2 digital console courtesy of Masons Games.

Trof Group, which operates Gorilla, The Deaf Institute, Albert Hall Manchester and Trof Northern Quarter, tasked their Head of Sound, Sean Kelly to select the new console for the venue. Kelly first experienced the Midas PRO Series at Shepherd’s Bush Empire FOH and was impressed with the sound and ease of use – especially the EQ.

"Gorilla hosts a wide variety of events, from the loudest rock to the quietest spoken word, so we needed a board that could handle that – and also had wide acceptance with visiting engineers", said Kelly. "Midas PRO Series ticked these boxes and I love the sound – so I had no hesitation in specifying the Midas PRO2 for Gorilla."
