    Engineer Vinnie Alibrandi has found a new use for his DiGiCo SD11 console in the post-production world. The 19-inch rackmountable mixer, which has typically ended up on small tour riders and install gigs where small but powerful were the major requirements, proved to be the perfect solution for Alibrandi to handle mastering duties in the studio. Alibrandi, who is a Post Production Engineer at the Capitol Christian Music Group, also engineers at FOH at Nashville’s HopePark Church on the weekends.… View this story

This makes it possible to move freely up and down the console range depending on space, budget… View this story

    Australian psychedelic hypno-groove melodic 5-piece - Tame Impala will traverse the U.S. through June in support of last year’s Lonerism release. Wanting to carry his own desk for the tour, the band’s new FOH engineer Parker had the challenge of sourcing a compact console that would fit within their adjunct trailer, alongside the group’s gear. After surveying the options, he chose a road-ready SD11 in a flight case plus a DiGiCo D rack (32 x 16) with a 75M CAT5e… View this story
