Paris (May 13, 2011)–A Midas Pro3 live audio system has been installed in the Gustave Eiffel room, on the first floor the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.
The 300-capacity venue commands 360 degree panoramic views of the city and hosts a wide variety of events from showcases to seminars and product presentations to business conferences.? ?
Alain Phillipon, the Eiffel Tower’s resident sound engineer for the past eight years, previously worked on a Midas Heritage 1000. “I wanted the versatility of digital as we host so many different kinds of events here that we need maximum flexibility. But I also wanted to keep the warmth of the Midas sound. The Pro3 offered the perfect solution.” ?
Once the Pro3 was installed, the sound team at the Eiffel Tower underwent initial training to put the new system through its paces in various situations, including a live concert and a recording session. “The team handled the console easily,” says Phillipon. “The system architecture is clearly laid out, making FOH mixing easy to handle. The sound is really clear and warm. We are now ready to challenge it!”?
“Next year we are looking to completely refurbish the space, and I know that the Midas Pro3 will see us into the future,” Phillipon concludes.
