    Audio Logic Systems of Minneapolis, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, provided production for a major concert event at the historic Loring Theater that featured the reunion of four of The Family’s original members—“St. Paul” Peterson, Jellybean Johnson, Susannah Melvoin and Eric Leeds—after nearly three decades apart. After debuting in 1986, The Family’s self-titled, Prince-produced album received positive reviews (and produced the single, ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’, famously covered by Sinead O’Connor). But after a single, sell-out show at First… View this story

    The new DiGiCo MINI and NANO racks offer a wide range of input and output options for any DiGiCo SD audio system. Multiple DiGiCo mixing consoles can be positioned in an Optocore 2G optical loop, ideally suited to complex live or broadcast productions where multiple consoles need to share and sub-mix I/O. An example of how this can work in the real world is a scenario of front of house, monitors and a live broadcast feed. Where the MINI and… View this story

Last summer, Miller put a pair of newly minted DiGiCo SD10 consoles through their paces at the 2010 MerleFest, one of the country’s premier Americana and roots music festivals.

    DiGiCo has announced the debut of the SD10-24, a console that boasts features and benefits that instantly distinguish it from the others in the SD Series, just in a more compact package. “When we introduced the SD8-24, which was primarily designed with the corporate market in mind, it was an immediate hit,” says James Gordon, DiGiCo’s managing director. “The SD10-24 is based on the same thinking; to provide a smaller footprint console for a particular segment of the market, but… View this story
