Live is Life has upgraded its second mobile audio mixing and recording facility, which is equipped with DiGiCo SD Ten Broadcast, supplied by Apex Audio Benelux. The second vehicle, LIVE3, proved so successful that it has now been permanently accommodated in a new, bigger OB vehicle – LIVE4.
Apex supplied the DiGiCo DS00 console for the original LIVE2, its 160 inputs making it suitable for Belgium’s biggest television shows and live events.
“Two of the higher profile projects where we used the SD Ten Broadcast in LIVE3 last year were at the Rock Werchter Festival (one of the five biggest European annual music festivals) and as a portable mixing setup set for Debby & Nancy’s Warm Winter Show, a weekly entertainment programme on VTM, the largest commercial television station in Belgium,” said Live is Life’s Gert Coremans. “The console proved that it was great for a diverse array of projects, so it made sense to include it in our biggest mobile facility.”
Apex has also supplied a range of outboard equipment for LIVE4. “The SD Ten Broadcast can work seamlessly with the outboard, but it can also handle plug-ins, meaning that it can meet all the needs of our clients,” added Coremans. “Apex has also supplied a third DiGiRack, to complement the two we already have for LIVE2. It is easy to swap input racks between the two vehicles, depending on client needs.”
The new truck has been booked for a number of events this summer, as Coremans concludes: “In fact, both will be at the Rock Werchter festival this year, at the Barn and the Marquee stages respectively.”
