    This article is provided by Primacoustic   Just like large big commercial studios, smaller and home studios suffer from acoustical interference that can make it more difficult to mix, especially when surrounded with the sound effects and ambiance that now typifies today’s stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes.

    Once again evidenced by the fact that eight of last year’s top ten highest-grossing tours carried SD Series consoles for front of house, monitors or both, many of the world’s premier concert sound companies are reporting that DiGiCo desks are still their “first choice” for handling the audio needs of the most complex and challenging touring productions. According to Brent Dannen, VER executive director, Audio, whose company has had 14 SD7s, 19 SD10s, 12 SD9s, one SD11i, two S21s and… View this story
