Group Technologies has been appointed sole distributor of DiGiCo Digital Live Consoles, including the new D1-Live and internationally renowned D5-Live Series. September’s PLASA show in the UK provided the backdrop to Group Technologies signing with DiGiCo, with the deal seeing an already impressive line-up of products, including RCF, Nexo, Optocore, Camco, Stagemaker and Quest strengthened by DiGiCo’s incredible range of live digital consoles.
“Securing DiGiCo’s distribution in Australia is a milestone for Group-Tech, and great news for the Australian audio industry” said GT’s Adam Iuston. “It is just incredible timing for us as DiGiCO release the new D1-Live system, which we believe to be well-suited to the Australian market”.
The DiGiCo D5-Live Digital Mixing System is a revolutionary sound console based around a powerful DSP engine utilising Soundtracs hardware and software, but with features dedicated to live sound mixing. D5-Live was the world’s first truly open-ended console system, with additional features made available in new software versions. This design philosophy ensures an investment in state-of-the-art audio technology today, will remain state-of-the-art in the future.
The new DiGiCo D1-Live system allows users to own a system based on the award-winning D5-Live Console, yet is cost-effective, and retains a huge amount of the flexibility. D1-Live provides the same outstanding sonic purity of the D5, and much of the powerful accessible control, in an even more compact frame at an “Access all Areas” price. The benefits of this system are equally compelling in a host of different applications: the tactile, intuitive, hands-on simplicity of the work surface with its clear, bright backlit TFT touch screens, snapshot controlled fully automated moving-fader mixing, powerful built-in dynamics and digital effects and complete “recall-ability” of every function.
