Goa-based rental company Audio Kris India has purchased a DiGiCo SD10 and an SD-Rack from the manufacturer’s Indian distributor, Hi-Tech Audio Systems.
The SD10 marks Audio Kris India’s third DiGiCo desk. ‘The addition of an SD10 console is a turning point for the company,’ claimed Rajan Gupta, managing director of Hi-Tech Audio Systems. ‘The purchase was made to answer the growing demand in and around Goa which is one of the most happening destinations for global artists and musicians.’
‘The SD10 we delivered has the Optocore network already implemented to accommodate the growing demand for Optocore solutions in the market,’ added Nirdosh Aggarwal, director of sales at Hi-Tech. ‘We are also providing after-sales training and support.’
‘We have been using DiGiCo consoles since our inception as a rental company,’ said Audio Kris founder, Cristovam De Monte Furtado. ‘We decided to add an SD10 to our inventory due to our growing list of clients. Artist tech riders almost always request DiGiCo consoles and we chose the SD10 for its reliability, pristine audio quality and ease of set up.’
Following delivery, the SD10 has been put to work for a series of gigs. ‘Added fader banks, additional smart keys or function keys and a more elaborate control surface make this console very hands-on without having to toggle screens to get to specific functions,’ commented Audio Kris engineer, Karl Da Costa. ‘Having a dedicated Master Stereo bus also adds value. Added AES I/O cards on the surface allow for running the entire system on a digital path.’
