Midas PRO6 on Stone Roses return

Robbie McGrath on his PRO 6

7 August 2012

UK - A Midas PRO6 mixed The Stone Roses' comeback' gigs in front of 225,000 fans at Manchester's Heaton Park.

In control Front of House is long-time Midas user Robbie McGrath, whose sound engineering credentials include some of rock music's finest acts including The Rolling Stones, AC/DC and Kasabian. McGrath praised the PRO6 for its wealth of musical ability.

"The head amps are incredible, I can set up the PRO6 the same way as I would a great analogue console such as the MIDAS XL4. On top of this you have a very smooth digital trim, which is fab. The EQ is exceptionally musical - it really retains that much-loved MIDAS sound and the on board compressors are amazing."

He continues, "The Stone Roses' are incredibly talented. Because it's drums, bass, guitar and vocals, with no trimmings whatsoever, I need a desk that will concentrate on the quality of the raw music, at the end of the day that's what this band are all about."
