Midas PRO6 installed in Casino du Liban
A Midas PRO6 live audio system has been installed into the Casino du Liban, Lebanon, where it is being used at front of house in the 1,200-capacity venue for a wide range of live music performances, from rock and pop through to jazz, classical, Arabic, dance shows and musicals. The PRO6, the first to be sold in the country, was supplied by Midas’ Lebanese distributor, Eltek.
“We consider the Casino du Liban as an extremely important first customer for the Midas PRO6,” says Dr Fouad Bechwati, senior acoustics consultant, Eltek. “The console will gain excellent exposure being used on international shows by one of the most competent sound engineers in the country, Tony Khoury. We are very pleased that our first ever sale of the PRO6 has been to a very high profile client, and are happy to confirm that the Casino du Liban intends to purchase further PRO6s to be used as front of house and monitor consoles in two of the venue’s theatres.”
“I chose this console after much research,” says Tony Khoury, chief sound engineer at the Casino du Liban. “I’ve worked on various Midas consoles over the past 15 years, from the H3000 and XL4 through to the Legend and Siena, and I particularly liked the sound quality of the Midas preamps and EQ. I’ve tried other digital consoles, but I went for the PRO6 because it’s very important to hear the warmth an analogue console can provide to acoustic instruments, and in my experience you can't find it in any other digital console. I'm very pleased to be working on it.”
