Alex Cooper's entry into pro audio came in 1979, when he realised that a life of rock and roll stardom did not await him. Having encountered Klark Teknik DN27 graphic equalisers while on the road with his band, and realising the company was based in his home town of Kidderminster, he approached them for a job.
Little did he know it, but this move would lead to his becoming one of the audio industry's leading designers of signal processing equipment and mixing consoles.
By the early eighties he had risen to become head of the test department, and in 1985 was tasked with figuring out how to test the newly-acquired Midas consoles. In his role as director of console development, Alex has been, and remains, a fundamental part of the legendary 'Midas Sound'.
