For anyone who had been keeping an eye on MidasConsoles.com over the past week, you’ll have noticed a little countdown going on. We’ve now arrived at the launch date, and the cone of silence has officially been lifted, as has the cloak of invisibility, and more importantly – the level of excitement! What’s it all about? Midas released two new consoles at the PLASA trade show in Earls Court, London over the weekend. The PRO2, and smaller (compact) PRO2C look set to make some serious waves in the… Read More »
