By Keith Clark • September 11, 2017 The new DiGiCo SD12 in place at Ebullition in Switzerland. This year marks the 25th birthday of Centre Culturel Ebullition, a live music venue in Bulle in the southwest of Switzerland, with the club’s owners deciding to celebrate this milestone by upgrading its audio equipment, including the addition of a new DiGiCo SD12 console. The 300-capacity venue is housed in a 100-year-old cinema and hosts a variety of acts from rock, pop, funk and folk to ska, punk, reggae, hip-hop and hard-core metal, as well as theatre productions and cinema. When deciding to upgrade the club’s audio system, Vincent Sudan, the club’s technical manager, contacted Tonspur AG, DiGiCo’s Swiss distributor, because he had purchased an SD8 from them for another club. “The club had an old analog console and it was clear that they needed to change for a digital console,” says Tonspur’s Eddy Broquet. “Vincent already knew DiGiCo, so the choice of console manufacturer was clear and they decided that the SD12 would perfectly fit their technical requirements and budget.” Ebullition’s DiGiCo system consists of an SD12 with a DiGiCo Waves SoundGrid DMI card for plugin integration, a D2-Rack on stage (48-in/16-out) and an SD-Mini Rack at FOH to provide enough I/O for Ebullition’s guest engineers. “We chose a DiGiCo SD Series console for its excellent sound quality and functionally,” adds Sudan. “We wanted to have the most recent console and the SD12 was the ideal choice because of its size, as we have limited space. “We’ve had great comments about the club’s sound from engineers, our clientele and staff since we’ve had our new system and SD12. The sound is more accurate, warm and powerful,” he concludes. “The service we received from Tonspur and DiGiCo was just perfect. Both companies are quick and efficient and we are very happy with our SD12.” DiGiCo Centre Culturel Ebullition Tonspur AG About Keith Keith Clark Editor In Chief, ProSoundWeb & Live Sound International Keith has covered professional audio and systems contracting for more than 25 years, authoring hundreds of articles in addition to hands-on work in every facet of publishing.
