Midas Takes Stefani on North American Tour

The North American leg of Gwen Stefani’s The Sweet Escape world tour is underway, seeing Midas XL4 consoles at front of house (Michelle Sabolchick) and monitors (Jon Schimke); a Midas Heritage 3000 handles sidecar duties at FOH. The P.A. is supplied by Sound Image.

“I love the XL4; it’s got everything I need and I know exactly how it’s going to sound great every time I turn it on, show after show,” says Sabolchick. “When you adjust a fader or EQ knob, you know exactly what you’re going to hear. It’s a reliable, great-sounding console that gives me a real feel for the mix—two-handed, old-school mixing. Of course, I’m looking forward to working with the Midas XL8, as it brings the warm sound quality and hands-on aspect I love about the analog Midas boards to the digital realm, but I’ll always love the XL4—that’s why I’m travelling around the world with one this year, and I know it won’t let me down.”
