Auckland, New Zealand (November 6, 2013)—High Definition Audio Visual recently bought two Allen & Heath digital consoles to use on corporate roadshows and concert events.
The desks in question are a Qu-16 rackmount mixer, and a new GLD-112 with accompanying AR2412 and AR84 for additional stage and FOH I/O racks.
The Qu-16 will be used for an upcoming national corporate roadshow that will have a corporate element as well as a performance in each city by the band Moorhouse, a recent X Factor NZ contestant. Meanwhile, the GLD-112 system was purchased to service events in the corporate and entertainment sector. On its first outing, the GLD-112 was required to handle 18 channels of corporate inputs and 22 channels of band and DJ inputs. In the coming months, the console will be managing acts such as Reece Mastin, Tiki Taane, and the Dozen, along with other corporate events.
“This was an easy purchase decision for us,” says head audio technician, Gareth Marsh. “With flying faders, quick and easy layer assignments, and the ability to control or monitor the console from our iPad, these mixers are an engineer’s ultimate tool. Both have the capability to switch between a common corporate setup into managing a full scale band at the touch of a button.”
