LEGEND - The World’s First “Tri-Purpose” Console

MIDAS too had been busy in Kidderminster, with the innovative LEGEND 3000 console, launched in 2002. As well as being suited to both Front of House and monitor mix duties, the console featured two sets of faders per channel to allow simultaneous mixing for both from the same console – hence it being advertised as the world’s first “Tri-Purpose” mixing console.

It featured a new approach to printed circuit board (PCB’s) layout where the previous individual vertical channel strip PCB’s were replaced by modular flat PCB’s, typically containing eight channels, which greatly reduced the number of interconnects – simplifying assembly and improving reliability.

This would become central to MIDAS’ approach to console construction in the coming decade.
