Midas consoles installed in Barcelona’s L’Auditori

Midas PRO digital consoles have been installed in one of Barcelona’s most prestigious music venues – L’Auditori.

Seesound, Midas’ Spanish partner, has supplied a PRO6 digital mixing system for larger events, as well as a PRO2 console for monitors and more intimate shows. Both systems can be interconnected via CAT5 cables, and share microphone preamps and all audio signals.

Carles Ribo, Seesound product manager commented: "L’Auditori wanted to implement the best possible audio quality with a user friendly control and flexibility. With this in mind, the technical team of L’Auditori immediately chose the digital Midas PRO Series, especially considering the sound quality the system delivers."

The venue offers three different performance spaces – the 2,200-seat Sala 1 Pau Casals, 600-seat Sala 2 Oriol Martorell, and 400-seat Sala 3 Tete Montoliu. All spaces frequently host performances by renowned international artists, often from the classical genre.

At the heart of the PRO Series, the PRO6 provides up to 64 simultaneous input processing channels, along with VCAs and POPulation groups that allow efficiency and flexibility – particularly when dealing with large orchestras, which often require a large number of layers and channels.

The more compact PRO2 is ideal for moving between different venues and spaces. With its intuitive interface and 64-channel capacity, it caters to a wide variety of performance needs, from simple set-ups to more ambitious shows.

SeeSound invited Richard Ferriday, Midas brand development manager, to come to L’Auditori and demonstrate the advantages of the system, its control options and to answer to any questions in depth.

"The fact that so many prestigious venues are now installing Midas digital at the heart of their audio systems emphasises we are now producing the best-sounding, most intuitive, flexible and greatest value proposition products available today," Ferriday added. "L’Auditori joins a fast-growing list of the world’s most iconic venues who are taking full advantage of what we at Midas have to offer."
