Multi-Media Event Trading recently purchased a pair of DiGiCo SD10 consoles from DWR Distribution along with two SD Racks on HMA Optics, Wave Servers, Orange Box and option cards. The technical production supplier put the new equipment straight to work on The Voice Nigeria.
Sound engineer Adriaan van der Walt, who joined Multi-Media earlier this year, is no stranger to DiGiCo consoles. ‘DiGiCo is an amazing system because you can design it, lay it out, and work with it in a way that suits your train of thought,’ he said. ‘On the run of The Voice, I completely reordered the layout of the console so that I wouldn’t be caught up in button presses to mix the show. I can mix the show in one state, and with a push of a button, the console populates the layout into the next state I need. I know where I am the entire show without having to try to find what I`m looking for. I find this rather impressive that I can achieve this over 36 faders, especially being quite a complex show. With help from Kyle Robson from DWR, it was possible to do that.’
Mr Robson commented, ‘I think it’s very exciting to actually see bigger consoles get onto the market and to see top end engineers using and loving them.’
‘Having the SD10s puts us in a different league compared to a month ago, and the audio boys in the industry will look at our company in a new way,’ Mr van der Walt concluded.
