DiGiCo’s SD10 has made its first venture into Brazil, with one being purchased by Sao Paolo-based events company Maxi Audio Luz Imagen. Maxi Audio technical manager Sandro Monteiro (pictured) saw the DiGiCo consoles on show at InfoComm 2009 and investigated options for the company, who had received requests to provide DiGiCo consoles by local sound engineers. “As a sound rental company, we need to offer the best products to our clients,” he said. “The DiGiCo SD10 has fantastic sound which has the same ‘colour’ as that of an analogue console. The digital processing has great clarity, the preamplifiers are high quality, the workflow is straightforward and the MADI system is really useful. On top of all that, the console has a great price.” Training on the SD10 was provided by Renato Carneiro, a live sound engineer and an associate of Antonio Lorenzetti; DiGiCo’s representative in Brazil. “Renato was a great choice for the training,” Monteiro continued. “He made learning the desk very straightforward. I have known Antonio for several years and he has always made things very easy. With DiGiCo he is exactly the same - the support is excellent.” The Brazilian “first” for DiGiCo continues a busy period for the console manufacturer, who launched the SD5 console and celebrated it’s 10th year anniversary at Prolight + Sound.
