takes Digico on the road

Experienced recording engineer and producer Henrik Nilsson is taking to the road in the in order to provide a mobile broadcasting service.

Having recorded and mixed for a number of high-profile artists, such as Metallica, Jean Michelle Jarre, Massive Attack and Robbie Williams, Nilsson’s truck is designed to handle digital audio via both MADI and Optocore. Two Digico D-Racks are optically connected to the SD10B console. MADI signals are routed via the truck’s MADI splitter system to the SD10B.

The equipment was installed by Danish audio specialists Soundware in less than a day. The company’s Kim Johansen, commented: “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 stages were equipped with DiGiCo SD7 consoles and DiGiRacks, supplied by DPA SoundCo, so it was straightforward for Henrik to pickup the MADI lines from each stage.

“Although Henrik is a very experienced studio engineer, he had never operated a DiGiCo console before and was amazed with its ease of use,” added Johansen. “The SD10B has not only given 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.”
