New Testament Church of God Invest in MIDAS PRO1

SFL Group supplies MIDAS PRO1 digital mixing console to New Testament Church of God

(PresseBox) (Manila, ) Mark Payne, Technical Director of Sound Foundation Ltd (SFL), a trusted UK sound, light and audio hire company specializing in House of Worship installations, was tasked by Pastor "Prince" Chambers and volunteer A/V supervisor Brother Neville Higgins with replacing the existing analogue FOH console, on-stage sub-mixers, effects and graphic EQs with an affordable high-quality digital audio mixing system. The decision, of course, was MIDAS.

"I'm a big fan of the sound of the MIDAS PRO Series consoles and the entry model PRO1," Explains Payne. "While being very compact and affordable, it has exactly the same sound as the rest of the range. Same mic-pres, converters, processing and EQ."

In addition to the great sound, Higgins loves the simplicity and security of the PRO1. "The effects and all other settings are saved internally, so set up is instant and my 'secret weapon' is the Scene Lock function."

"Sometimes, in my absence, the musicians will make changes to the console and forget what they did or forget to tell me. So I have a special locked scene which I recall before I start, so I am always starting from the same set-up."

The New Testament Church of God owns a TriCaster Video system and creates DVDs of the services, edited live, for immediate distribution. "The sound for the DVDs is a dedicated feed from Aux 15 and 16 on the PRO1," Says Higgins. "The whole system now sounds so much better - but the biggest difference was in the record feed. I was shocked at how much we were able to improve the audio quality of the DVDs!"

As part of the commissioning, SFL included an on-site training session and now Higgins trains others.

"The PRO1 can be used in a very simple way, which is great when you first get started," adds Higgins. "Now, as I am getting more into it, I keep finding more and more features. I particularly like the choice of 5 compressors on every channel which can be compared instantly - without the need to patch and interrupt the sound."
