SSR Manchester - Midas R&D Partnership

We are thrilled to have begun a partnership with Midas Research & Development in Trafford Park.

Midas has been designing and manufacturing audio consoles since the early 1970s and their consoles are used around the world by audio engineers largely in the live sound realm.

While Midas have been a creative partner of SSR for a number of years, this new collaboration with their Research & Development department allows our live sound students to visit their training room, which has a smorgasboard of 8 Midas Pro-Series consoles and a Turbo Sound PA system setup.

During the visits, SSR students will get some invaluable training and hands on access on these industry leading consoles. In return, Midas get to interview the students regarding the intuitiveness of the Midas approach and to get feedback on how the newest members of the live industry see the development of live consoles in the future.

Early visits have already taken place, and you can see some pictures over on our media gallery.

The partnership has already led to an employment opportunity for one of our students, with recent graduate Jon Paul Williams being taken on by Midas as a Testing Engineer. We'll have a separate story on this soon...

We would like to thank Max, Ray and Jason at Midas R&D for developing this opportunity with us and we look forward to taking more students over in the near future!
