Switzerland’s Centre Culturel Ebullition has celebrated its 25th anniversary with a major audio upgrade, with its owners investing in a new Digico SD12.
The 300-capacity live music venue is located in a 100-year old cinema and hosts a variety of genres, as well as theatre productions and cinema.
Once the upgrade was decided upon, Vincent Sudan, the club’s technical manager, contacted Tonspur AG, Digico’s Swiss distributor, having prevkously purchased an SD8 from them for another club he also works in.
“The club had an old analogue console and it was clear that they needed to change for a digital console,” explained Tonspur’s Eddy Broquet. “Vincent already knew Digico, so the choice of console manufacturer was clear and they decided that the SD12 would perfectly fit their technical requirements and their budget.”
Ebullition’s Digico system consists of an SD12 with a Digico Waves SoundGrid DMI Card for plugin integration, a D2-Rack on stage (48in/16out) and a SD-Mini Rack at FOH to provide enough I/O for guest engineers.
“We chose a Digico SD Series console for its excellent sound quality and functionally,” added Sudan. “We wanted to have the most recent console and the SD12 was the ideal choice because of its size, as we have limited space.
“We’ve had great comments about the club’s sound from engineers, our clientele and our staff since we’ve had our new system and our SD12. The sound is more accurate, warm and powerful. The service we received from Tonspur and DiGiCo was just perfect. Both companies are quick and efficient and we are very happy with our SD12.”
