Midas Heritage 3000 and Midas Venice 320 consoles played a prominent role in a series of outdoor shows that the Pasadena Pops performed at this past summer at the Descanso Gardens in Pasadena, CA. The sound system for the 70-player symphony orchestra was designed by Pops consultant Larry Estrin and sound contractor Nelson Sound's Jack Haffamier…Earth, Wind & Fire's monitor engineer Mike Lionetti has been using an ATI Paragon II monitor console on the legendary R&B group's recent world tour. EW&F started the tour last August with a sound system from Cleveland's 8th Day Sound. “The Paragon II gives me the ability to have two different selections of pre-fader level and to use the channel outputs as post-fader level,” says Lionetti, who is using the PII to simultaneously drive nine stereo in-ear mixes, six wedge mixes, a handful of sidefills and two Yamaha 900 effects sends.
