Digidesign, a division of Avid Technology Inc., announced plans to enter the sound reinforcement market with a new digital mixing console system aimed for use in tours, theatrical productions, corporate installations and houses of worship. The system will feature high-fidelity audio and a recording and playback pathway to Digidesign’s Pro Tools digital audio workstation.

Digidesign general manager Dave Lebolt commented, “For the past three years, we’ve engaged in a huge development effort to create a live mixing system that combines our DSP and control surface expertise with the special requirements of performance sound. The result of this effort is a new product line that, like the Pro Tools family of systems, is engineered to be flexible, expandable and scalable to meet many different needs and price points. With these revolutionary products, we hope to achieve the same level of success in the live sound market as we have in the recording and post-production industries.”

Digidesign plans to unveil its sound reinforcement product line in September 2004 at the PLASA event in London; the system is expected to ship by the end of 2004.
