Music Mix Mobile has completed an upgrade of its Lawo audio console in the company’s Voyager production truck.
According to Joel Singer, co-owner and chief engineer of Music Mix Mobile (M3), “Our goal was to create an even more powerful remote music truck, and the Lawo system allows us total flexibility for music recording and broadcast, along with the brilliant sound quality required for music applications. We previously had a smaller Lawo mc236 in this truck, but with the increase in larger input shows we’re doing, we decided to dedicate that mc236 to one of our smaller mobiles and put a larger Lawo mc256 into this truck. We now have three mc256 trucks and one mc236 truck on the road, doing some of the largest music broadcasts and recordings in this hemisphere.”
The newly installed mc256 has a 48-fader surface supported by Lawo’s HD core with four 8-port MADI cards offering 2,048 bidirectional channels and six DSP cards supporting over 560 DSP channels. The use of dual master cards in both the console core and all DALLIS frames provides redundancy for live-to-air applications. In addition to the mc256, Voyager’s new audio gear complement includes two Lawo DALLIS mic preamp racks with more I/O for larger events added by connecting additional DALLIS modular stageboxes.
M3’s Voyager unit had its inaugural run with the new, larger Lawo system at the Tidal Music Festival in Brooklyn, NY. Slated follow-up projects include the iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina 2017 in Miami, and the Latin Grammy Awards in Las Vegas, both in November.
