TryAudio’s Masaaki Azuma recently took delivery of a DiGiCo D5 Live 56EX for his live operations in Japan. The company also took delivery of a DiGiTracs hard disk multitrack recorder to develop a new market for live concert recording.

“I knew of the D5’s existence from my overseas friends in the P.A. business and first saw the D5 at the Frankfurt MusikMesse,” said Azuma. “At that time, I was given a 15-minute ‘how to use’ explanation and was surprised that the D5 not only has a method of operation like an analog mixing console, but it is also very easy to setup. The D5 56EX version has many functions and doesn’t take up a large amount of space at the mix position.

“I took a big risk with the D5,” Azuma continued, “because we are the first user in Japan. But it has many advantages such as fantastic sound quality, clear sound image, easy operation and a variety of dynamics that analog consoles do not have, and this made it an easy choice. After extensively using the D5 in many applications, I feel it is the Number One digital mixing system. Its many mechanical, electronic and software features place it way ahead of anything else available today."

TryAudio provides services to major Japanese tours and festivals, and to major artist from overseas such as Jamiroquai, Fat Boy Slim, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Oasis, among others.
