DiGiCo Expands Into Brazil with SD10 Sale
DiGiCo’s SD10 has made its first venture into Brazil, as one of the consoles was purchased by events company Maxi Audio Luz Imagen, based in Sao Paulo. Maxi Audio technical manager Sandro Monteiro says he had seen the DiGiCo consoles on show at InfoComm 2009 and with sound engineers at Brazilian events asking for DiGiCo consoles.
“As a sound rental company, we need to offer the best products to our clients,” he says. “The DiGiCo SD10 has fantastic sound which has the same ‘colour’ as that of an analogue console. The digital processing has great clarity, the preamplifiers are high quality, the workflow is straightforward and the MADI system is really useful.”
Training on the SD10 was provided by Renato Carneiro, an associate of Antonio Lorenzetti DiGiCo’s representative in Brazil.
“Renato was a great choice for the training,” Sandro continues. “He made learning the desk very straightforward. I have known Antonio for several years and he has always made things very easy. With DiGiCo he is exactly the same – the support is excellent.”
With the SD10 in the company’s inventory, Sandro is hoping that it will help to increase the number of events that Maxi Audio is asked to support.
“We have had a lot of positive feedback from clients and sound engineers,” says Maxi Audio owner José Augusto Martins. “I think we will be adding SD7 and SD9 consoles to our inventory sooner than we imagined.”
