Melbourne, Australia (July 10, 2020)—There may not be a lot of live events going on, but for those who long for EDM with the requisite visual grandiosity, they might do well to check out The Cube, a livestreaming event space gaining traction in the world of live DJ streaming. While visually impactful, the sound is equally important, and for the livestream broadcast mix, a DiGiCo SD9 is employed.
Aiming to embody the visual flair of a festival stage, the Cube is a compact streaming space created as a collaboration between Melbourne AV retailer Concert Audio Visual, lighting and visuals specialists VizFx and Melbourne-based online radio station LESH FM. The SD9, supplied by DiGiCo’s Australian distributor, Group Technologies, was chosen for mixing pre-broadcast audio, as well as handling the stage monitor mix, DJ Booth audio and Front of House mix.
Anthony Graziani, Concert AV’s Sales Manager and one of The Cube’s primary team members, explained, “The SD9 can accomplish a lot from such a compact format. The routing options and onboard signal processing mean we have something in place that is well suited for supporting DJ performance audio but can just as easily handle mixing an entire band for the stream, or whatever else you can throw at it.”
The team’s in-house engineer, Oliver Coupe Sando, adds that the SD9 was chosen for its sonic transparency.
“When we stream, we’re looking to introduce as little tone shaping and color to the sound as possible, so that we can translate what we’re hearing in the space, to people’s headphones and living rooms, with the maximum amount of clarity available to us,” he explains.
