Radio-Canada Acadie Takes To The Air With Studer Vista 5

In the first use of a Studer Vista 5 console in a CBC/Radio-Canada facility, Radio-Canada Acadie with main studios located in Moncton, New Brunswick recently purchased a Vista 5 for its television studio. Sold through Solotech Inc., the Vista 5 console features 32 faders in a 42-fader chassis.

When deciding on a console, Radio-Canada Acadie needed one that could operate daily without fail. “The Vista 5 is used seven days a week,? says Maurice Cyr, operations manager for Radio-Canada Acadie. “We have only one studio, one control room and one Vista 5, so the console must be dependable and perform well, day in and day out. If it fails, we can’t go to air since we have no backup or replacement available in our plant. Our operations dictate that we have an audio control board that is trustworthy, and so far the Vista 5 has not let us more

Soundcraft Vi6 Making News In Perth

The guys at Channel 7 Perth’s news control room have put their aging Euphonix 2000 mixing console to rest, replacing it with a Soundcraft Vi6 large-format digital live desk.

“We had a thorough look at the market and I have to admit that originally I really wanted a Studer Vista 5 console, but it wasn’t within our budget,? confessed Colin Graham, primary operator of the Vi6. “However in my researching I came across the Soundcraft Vi6 console and realised that it was really a Vista 5 without as much fruit, and the fruit that it was missing wasn’t what I was interested in anyway!.?

Graeme Pennifold, Channel Seven’s Engineering Manager, states that there were other contenders but that they very soon focused on the Studer from an operational view.

?We liked the Vistonics control on the Studer, in fact that’s what really sold us, but we were more

RAS Audio Services uses SADiE on CBBC’s ‘Prank Patrol’

Manchester-based RAS Audio Services has highlighted the power and flexibility of the SADiE PCM8 for television audio production by using it on the forthcoming third series of CBBC’s extremely successful ‘Prank Patrol’.

Produced by Bakermedia in Manchester and scheduled to air from January on BBC2 on Saturday mornings, the 10×30 ‘Prank Patrol’ follows the team of Barney and the Ninjas as they play elaborate pranks on viewers’ unsuspecting friends and family. Mummies come to life, aliens land, robots bust through walls…all of which is a far cry from RAS Audio Services’ core business of recording brass bands, choirs and chamber music.

“I used to work for Bakermedia’s MD a few years ago at another facility house, now defunct, and having re-established contact I was asked if I’d like to do the audio post for the forthcoming third series,? explains RAS’s Richard Scott.

The combination of Richard’s experience more

After five successful years in Taiwan, the singing extravaganza Asian Million Star premiered on Hong Kong with help from the highly versatile, frequency-agile AKG DMS 700 wireless microphone system. The wildly popular television show, which started months before the on-air premier with 5,000 aspiring singers, featured 25 contestants competing over the course of 13 episodes, with a panel of judges selecting the best vocal performers to move on to the finale.

Judges for the show included an array of respected audio and musical professionals ranging from creative composers to studio producers. With some of the most finely tuned ears in the business deciding the fate of each performer, the AKG DMS 700 system matched musical talent with sonic integrity.

Randy Meullier Turns To Soundcraft Vi6 For Alice Cooper “Theatre Of Death? Tour

SSE Audio provides Soundcraft platform for rock legend’s European leg.

POTTERS BAR, United Kingdom — When Alice Cooper embarked on his current UK and European Theatre of Death tour, his long-serving sound engineer Randy Meullier was finally able to bag his first choice digital console — the Soundcraft Vi6™.

And he says he largely has Pete Russell at the SSE Audio Group to thank. Taking over the European sound production duties from Phoenix-based Precise Corporate Staging (PCS), by the time Russell suggested that Meullier try the Soundcraft platform (with the Vistonics™ II interface), the sound man — who has been piloting the legendary rocker’s front-of-house mixes for the past seven years — had already served his baptism on the Vi6 in Norway and Cyprus.

“Earlier in this tour I did a fly-in show at the Skaanevik Festival in Norway and it was a joy to use the more
