Dublin (February 15, 2007)–Midas and Klark Teknik’s Irish distributor Sound Communications has supplied Dublin’s National Concert Hall with a new monitor system consisting of a Midas Siena 400 console and Klark Teknik Show Command hardware and software. This is reportedly one of the first complete packages to be supplied where Klark Teknik Show Command and Midas are united via Solo Tracking System (SOS), designed to assist an operators’ access into all of the essential EQ functions offered within the KT Helix system.
Kevin Jennings, Midas sales, Sound Communications (left) and Ian Dowdall, National Concert Hall sound engineer, take the new system for a spin.”My request from the NCH was for a monitor system which used a Midas console, but could have a degree of digital automation and some form of wireless control,” said Sound Communications’ Alan Murphy. “At the first meeting I mentioned the Klark Teknik Show Command system, which brings all these elements together, allowing the engineer to walk around and EQ the stage with a wireless tablet computer running Klark Teknik’s ELGAR software. I told them it was a fantastic system, and fortunately they agreed and bought one!”
The NCH’s system consists of the Midas Siena together with a KT DN9331 RAPIDE graphic controller which gives access to the functions of KT digital EQs, providing recall of fader positions via 31 long travel motorized faders; three KT DN9344E quad equalizers and two KT Square ONE Dynamics units. Wireless control of the system is provided by KT’s proprietary ELGAR software. The three amplifier racks are each run by a KT DN9848E System Controller to provide 12 bi-amped wedge monitor mixs, again all under ELGAR control.
