A/V integration firm Essential Communications has installed an Ashly Audio digiMIX24 digital mixing console in the Django jazz club below The Roxy Hotel in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan in New York City.
The Ashly digiMIX24 features a touchscreen with 24 inputs, 14 mix buses, 32-bit conversion and processing, dynamics, equalisation, digital effects, and easy scene recall.
“The Roxy is our client, and they were in the market for a new live mixer for The Django,” explained David Schwartz, president of Essential Communications. “They wanted all of the functionality and processing power of a large console, but they didn’t have a lot of physical room.
"The Ashly digiMIX24 is compact and packs a ton of features into a small footprint. However, Ashly was very clever in the design so that all of the functionality appears seamlessly. It’s uniquely powerful, but also uniquely easy to use. They will use its full power for jazz shows, but they’ll also use its EZ Mode for meetings and other events.
“The Django’s FOH engineer wanted to have the ability to walk around the club and mix remotely. He wants to hear the mix from different perspectives; like looking at a work of art from different angles and under different lighting. You get a different vibe. He wants to make sure the mix is working from every vantage point.”
