Wooddale Church in Eden Prairie, Minn., has used a Midas Legend 3000 in its large main sanctuary since 2003. When the time came to renovate the system in its original, smaller sanctuary, Wooddale church media director, Peter Greenlund, looked to the Midas Verona 560 as an affordable, high-performance mixing solution.
Says Greenlund, “The Great Room is a multipurpose space, though more and more services are being held in there. We needed to update the P.A. to accommodate the production needs of the various ministry teams that use the room. The improvement in sound quality with the Midas was dramatic. We were amazed at how full and warm those little speakers sounded through the new console. It just goes to show what a difference quality preamps and EQs make throughout the signal chain.”
“Having the simplicity of a straight-ahead analog console has its advantages beyond simply sounding better,” Greenlund commented on the user-friendliness aspect of the Verona. “We have operators of all ages and experience levels in this room, from the youth ministry to the traditional services, and everyone can quickly learn to use this console without supervision, which saves the media team a lot of time. The Verona is also great for volunteer morale: It’s an impressive-looking console that they can quickly learn to operate, making the mix sound superb in no time!“
