Having the option of four compressors on each channel [of the Midas PRO9] that retain your settings as you scroll through is invaluable. The adaptive compressor is amazing on drums and percussion, and I’m using two multiband compressors, a pitch and a delay for vocals, with two plate reverbs for drums. The ability to sidechain either the compressor or gate from any channel is now a must-have for my mixing setup. Another great feature is the KVM switch that allows me to have my Mac Mini on the right-hand screen. This runs the Meyer Galileo that I use for system tuning, my Smaart 7 setup and iTunes for playback, which makes for an extremely streamlined setup; now I don’t have to worry about carrying a laptop out to front of house during show time.
