At DCR Nashville, we want the audience to be moved by their concert experience and the only way to do that is through providing creative and exciting sound and visual experiences.
We’ve recently expanded an already impressive production inventory to include three DiGiCo mixing consoles: two SD10 desks and a new SD12. Also included are 3 SD-Racks — each fully loaded with 56 channels of DiGiCo’s brand new 32-bit “John Stadius” mic preamp modules — three DiGiGrid MGB interfaces and three Waves SoundGrid Extreme servers. For more details on the quality and capabilities of this equipment visit: www.digico.biz
We pride ourselves on staying up-to-date and this new equipment is a testament to our dedication to quality music production for both our clients, and most importantly, the fans. We want to stay ahead of the curve in terms of what touring organizations want. We know our clients expect the best and we are dedicated to providing the best possible solutions. In starting this company, our goal has always been to offer our clients quality production inventory. When client’s oversell their capabilities, it’s our job to know when and where we can provide a comfortable solution.
At DCR Nashville, we see the newest SD-Series desk as the natural progression in the evolution, and we fully expect that the SD12 will soon be a very popular choice. Furthermore, in using DiGiCo products on a number of tours they have surpassed our high expectations. The SD-Series consoles are simply put “great-sounding, high-quality products.”
Most importantly, we believe that DiGiCo also has the lowest failure rate on the road, which is obviously an important factor in our choice to trust this particular product. Given that, it’s easy to see why they’ve become one of the ‘industry standards’ that everybody’s looking for — so it didn’t make sense for us not to increase our current inventory with their products. With this investment we’re excited to re-strengthen our partnership with DiGiCo and help them properly service Nashville’s active touring and cross-rental markets.
We won’t stop here. We’ve got our ears to the ground in this market, and we look forward to always meeting our client’s production needs.
