Cornwall, UK (December 14, 2006)–An Allen & Heath ML5000 VCA mixer has been installed in the fictional studio of the popular Canadian TV show, Instant Star. Now in its third season, the TV drama chronicles the life of a feisty young rock star, Jude Harrison, who has won a recording contract with G-Major studios.
Alexz Johnson, who plays Jude Harrison in Instant Star, on set with the Allen & Heath ML5000.”Our main objective with Instant Star is to make the series as realistic as possible to accurately reflect the music industry, which is why we had to have a fully functioning board and not just a set piece. This is enhanced with the presence of the Allen & Heath ML5000 mixer, which is the centerpiece of our recording studio set in the fictitious ‘G Major’ Studio,” explained executive producer, Stephen Stohn.
“Many of the show’s fans are intrigued by the music business, so the challenge is to have all the equipment working as a real studio with the mixer at the core operating as a real board, with the meters visibly working.”
