Conan Gets Two Studer Vista 9 Digital Consoles For Audio Mixing

Conan, the new late-night talk, music and entertainment show hosted by award-winning comedic talent Conan O’Brien showcases O’Brien’s tremendous versatility as a performer as well as his eclectic tastes in musical guest artists–not to mention his all-star house band led by guitarist Jimmy “V? Vivino. To handle that kind of performance diversity, Conan needed mix consoles for both music and production dialog that could keep up with the fast timing and quick turns of the show, and that’s exactly what the two Studer Vista 9 digital consoles specifically installed for the program at the Warner Bros Studio Facilities’ Stage 15, in Burbank, California provide.

RTÉ Radio Adds Its 19th Studer OnAir 3000

When Ireland’s national broadcaster, RTÉ Radio upgraded its Studio 10 sports studio recently, it took the network’s tally of Studer OnAir 3000 digital consoles to 19. While 10 are located in the main RTE campus, one occupies an RTE studio in a nearby shopping centre, and the other eight are distributed over five regional studio centres.

The broadcaster’s relationship with Studer extends back many years to the A80 tape machines, which were in use in RTÉ Radio for many years, and over the past six years they have systematically upgraded all the main radio studios, replacing various analogue consoles with the OnAir 3000 series — Studio 10 being the last in line.

RTÉ Radio’s resident studio guru, Seamus Power, drew up the initial list of requirements for the new desk and the contract for the installation was awarded to local company, Audiohead Ltd, who have extensive experience more
