DiGiCo on the road with Audiotruck.dk
4 July 2011
Denmark - Recording engineer and producer Henrik Nilsson has recorded and mixed a variety of high profile live concerts for broadcast, including Metallica, Jean Michel Jarre, Massive Attack, Robbie Williams, the Roskilde and Skanderborg festivals. He recently bought Audiotruck dk to provide a versatile OB service.
Following a May refit, the truck's audio infrastructure is to the highest standard, handling digital audio via both MADI and Optocore. Two DiGiCo D-Racks are optically connected to the SD10B console. Meanwhile, MADI signals are routed via the truck's MADI splitter system to the SD10B.
The console is used to mix the show for live broadcast, routing up to 256 channels of digital audio to a Macintosh-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 reports.
"The truck came in to Soundware in the morning without equipment and left the same evening with a plug and play system," he says. "From here it went straight to the SPOT festival in Aarhus, where it was used to record the performances on two of the stages."
The two stages were equipped with DiGiCo SD7 consoles and DiGiRacks, supplied by DPA SoundCo, so it was straightforward for Nilson to pick up the MADI lines from each stage.
