A Midas PRO6 has been specified for the new performance space at the University of Bunda Mulia in North Jakarta. The major new developed was overseen by acclaimed musician and recording engineer Chossy Pratama, while the console was provided by local Midas distributor PT Gracia Auvindo.

"I wanted the best, so it had to be a Midas," said Pratama. "Their analogue consoles are renowned for providing lots of gain and headroom but here, for a 21st century facility with some space constraints, I opted for a digital board.

"The EQ and dynamics are similar to those on the Midas Heritage console, and the EQ does exactly what I expect; the first time this has happened with a digital console. The desk's reverb and delays sound natural, while the reverb on vocal performances are very warm. I can combine this with some delay effects when needed."

Pratama also praised the user-friendly design of the PRO6 and the system's suppliers: "Both the manufacturer in the UK and the local distributor here in Jakarta have been very supportive."

The PRO6-equipped facility will cater to a diverse range of activities, including graduation ceremonies, seminars, lectures, concerts and corporate events.
