Le Studio Mobile owner/operator Guillaume Bengle

Le Studio Mobile owner/operator Guillaume Bengle

Owner/operator Guillaume Bengle is celebrating his company's 30th anniversary in the remote-recording field, and recently added a second remote truck to his arsenal. The new mobile studio's twin Yamaha DM2000V2 boards handled the broadcast recording of this year's Canadian Juno Awards, a project the company has covered for more than 23 years.

Looking back on his live-recording work in the 1970s, Bengle says, “We used a 12-input console and a ½-inch 4-track recorder, each weighing about 200 pounds located in the kitchen of the clubs we worked in. It soon became obvious that the equipment should stay in the truck and only microphones and snakes were taken out.

“The business was very different 30 years ago,” Bengle continues. “Most of our work came from radio and about one-third from recording projects. Television came a bit later. Today, TV and DVD projects account for about 80 percent of our business.”
