The Heritage-D extensive Beta tours continue into 2020 with UK pop sensation, and recent BRIT Award winner, Mabel. With the Heritage-D on monitors and the Pro2 at FoH, her sold-out shows are guaranteed to have the Midas touch. We caught up with monitor engineer Nat Hopking, a sound engineer who has worked with the likes of Stormzy, Wretch32 and Leanne Rimes, on the Manchester leg of their UK tour, to get his impressions on our new cutting edge console. He talks us through his workflow, favourite effects, sound quality and innovative time-saving features, such as the Manchino workflow, that make his life easier on a busy, high profile tour.

4.01 for Midas M32 and M32R Released 2019-12-06 Download Here: http://bit.ly/M32_Firmware_update PLEASE NOTE:
Regarding M32/M32R fader speed; which was reduced with the 4.0 update. There is a series of M32 that need slightly different control, hence we added the Fast Faders option in Setup/Config menu. However, this option is not required, nor recommended to be used with the standard models, because faders movement may be jittery.
