SSR Manchester - Midas Visit
Midas Visit
On Wednesday 1st March, Jay Beard, Head of Live Sound took a group of students to visit Midas:

"It was great to be able to take my S&LMP Y2 students over to Midas in Trafford Park as part of the Digital Systems for Live Events Module. They were able to get hands on the Pro X, Pro 2 and Pro 1 desks during their afternoon visit. I tasked the students with networking up the consoles, sending digital audio via AES50 around the room to various places and back creating complex routing. Audio networking is an important part of live sound nowadays so visits like this are an essential part of the learning process in preparation for the live sound industry.

Thanks to Ray and Max over at Midas for helping me organised these trips and to everyone at Midas for their continuing support."
