Digico has recently added Russia to its roster of locations for training seminars, with its first session in the territory taking place in February at the recording and performance studios of artist Igor Sandler.
The company’s vice president of sales Ian Staddon was joined by revered FOH engineer Dave Bracey, who has plied his trade for such artists as Massive Attack, Robbie Williams and Bjork, with whom he is currently touring.
The pair presented a mixture of technical theory and hands-on practice, with the seminars covering Digico’s entire range of products, from the flagship SD7 to UB MADI, the latest offering from the company’s Solutions division. These sessions were then rounded off with a Mixing Master Class from Bracey. To conclude the event, all attendees were treated to an evening of food, drink and a live performance by an AC/DC covers band mixed on an SD7.
“The seminar was well organised, and I had a lot of time to discuss my questions with the Digico and WAVES specialists,” commented Alexander Odelevsky,head of the Sound Reinforcement department?at The Moscow International House of Music. “We were able to fully explore the consoles. For new users it was a great experience to be able to study on Digico consoles, and a great opportunity to address a few challenges and discuss some deep hardware and software nuances for pro sound engineers like me, who are experienced in Digico consoles. Thanks to the Digico/WAVES/Aris Pro teams for a great event.”
“Everybody really liked the seminar,” added Yaroslav Udovik, managing director of Aris Pro. “In fact, we plan to do more, as we have identified a need to provide more information to the end users in the Russian market.”
“It’s fantastic to be able to support exciting markets in this way,” concluded Staddon. “The feedback we’ve had from the attendees was extremely encouraging and we’re looking forward to a return visit in the near future.”
