Jens Moeller, MI and concert sound sales rep for ASCON Trading (the Danish distributor for Electro-Voice, Dynacord, Midas and Klark Teknik), can practice what he preaches now that he's installed a Midas Verona 400 into his Copenhagen home studio.

Navigating the 40-channel console wasn't a problem for Moeller, but hauling up four flights of stairs to his small apartment was certainly a challenge. “It was a fair amount of effort but definitely worth the trouble!” he says jokingly, noting that he had to first sell off most of his furniture to make room for the new board and then call on a few favors from his musician friends to get it into his apartment. “I wanted to try it out and finally had the opportunity. I couldn't get it out of my flat, but it sounded so good I bought it.” Traditionally used in live settings, Moeller uses the Midas as “kind of a patch board. I have a huge number of keyboards and each one can go into its own channel.”

Moeller and bandmate Peter Alfred comprise the electronic duo Transport, a Kraftwerk-influenced collaboration that's two years in the making. “We play all of the instruments ourselves,” Moeller says. “It's not a MIDI hell.”
