Acclaimed recording engineer/producer Henrik Nilsson has selected DiGiCo’s latest broadcast-specific console, the SD10B, for installation in his new Audiotruck.dk OB facility.
A recent refit means that the vehicle is able to handle digital audio via both MADI and Optocore. Two DiGiCo D-Racks are optically connected to the SD10B, while MADI signals are routed to the console via the truck’s MADI splitter system.
The console will be used to mix concerts for live broadcast, routing up to 256 channels of digital audio to a Mac-based recording system running Steinberg Nuendo.
The equipment was installed by Danish audio specialists Soundware in less than a day, as the company’s Kim Johansen revealed: “The truck came in to Soundware in the morning without equipment and left the same evening with a plug and play system. “From here it went straight to the SPOT festival in Aarhus, where it was used to record the performances on two of the stages.”
Both of these stages at Aarhus were equipped with DiGiCo SD7 consoles and DiGiRacks, supplied by DPA SoundCo.
“Although Henrik is a very experienced studio engineer, he had never operated a DiGiCo console before and was amazed with its ease of use,” said Johansen. “The SD10B has not only given Audiotruck.dk a cutting-edge technical specification, it has also made it very intuitive to use. This is extremely valuable in the high-pressure world of outside broadcast.”
