Check out this ambitious theatre project being put on by Theatre Sheridan in Oakville. The cast and crew of Theatre Sheridan will be taking over an old abandon school facility to put on an interactive and immersive theatre experience. With multiple performances spaces inside the school, audience members will be following the story as they move through the halls.
Stop by the shop in the next week or so to take a look at the Midas Pro 2 digital mixing console. We have the first one available from the new Midas distributor Intellimix. Thanks to our rep Ed Lockyer for getting us the first Midas Pro 2 in Canada out of the new batch.
The first thing you notice when you boot up the console is that it starts with the familiar black and white text of the Linux OS. We were happy to see this console has a powerful and stable operating system at its core. The second thing you notice is the fantastic looking screen. Big, bright and right in the center of the desk. It is not a touch screen. However, after playing with the surface for 5 minutes you realize why you don’t need one. The layout and the way you interact with the knobs gives the Midas Pro the feeling of an analog desk. There is no need to be touching the screen and getting finger prints all over it. The touch sensitive knobs highlight on the screen as soon as you touch them and everything has a physical button. If you really need a touch screen you can download the Midas Pro app to an iPad. This allows you to use a touch screen when connected to a wireless router. The app is free and syncs to the console with a simple IP address.
Another thing we really like is the Population Groups, or simply Pop Groups. These are fast and easy access groups that make mixing live music very snappy. With the push of a button the Pop Group brings the channels to the center faders and brings all their info up on the screen. This makes it easy to find channels without having to flip pages. The channel strip then shows up on the right hand side of the screen. Half an inch to the right of that is the physical knob section that has all the processing control in a nice neatly laid out line.
Give us a call to schedule a time to come in and get some hands on time with the Midas Pro 2.
We recently worked in the wood shop to make this very robust lounge chair. A great fit for a studio or on tour. This road case chair features ball corners and recessed handles. Made of 1/2 inch ABS coated plywood with aluminum edging, it is made to withstand even the heaviest of loads.
Congrats to Taylor and his new Blackmagic Design 4k Cinema Camera. His next project will be shot in 4k HD and use Davinci Resolve Software for colour correction.
Check out Taylor Jackson Media for his current work. Also check out Startup Community a film about the Waterloo Region and the people that live and work here.
We tested out the 4k camera the shop with an old Canon 28-90 kit lens for a joke. Taylor claims he will be using this exact set up for his upcoming tourist photos. For more professional projects he will be using Canon L series and adaptors for Nikon lenses.
