DiGiCo and Soundtracs will host a live linkup between a DiGiCo D5 FMX and a Soundtracs DS-00 at NSCA booth #2808 to show how efficiently live and recorded sound can be handled on a single integrated digital system.

The two console systems share a common software platform and MADI digital interfaces, and employ identical file formats.

“We intended from day one that the two systems should be able to work seamlessly together,” said DiGiCo CEO Eric Wade. “This allows a live and recording production—such as a large TV music show—to be mixed live at both front of house and monitors on the D5 FMX system, sharing a common fiber loop, while being recorded through a Soundtracs DS-00 on the same loop. The benefits are a completely stable gain structure, total freedom from ground buzzes or other Earth-related problems, and the ability to exchange effects and dynamics settings and all snapshots freely.”

Wade also commented that the show could also be recorded direct to a DiGiTRACS hard disk show recorder, a high-capacity/plug-and-play/rackmounted system. Its editing interface is based on Merging Technologies’ Pyramix system, allowing instant location editing on a Windows PC.
