Only published comments... Apr 29 2010, 07:56 PM by Angus Davidson

As part of a program to make our technology more widely available, a VENUE D-show and Mix Rack have been installed in to the performance space at 3RRR Community Radio station in Melbourne, Australia.

This space is used for Live to Air performances and is now considered to be the best of its kind in Australia. In addition to the live performances, the space is used for VENUE training and industry showcases including a recent end to end VENUE/ICON demonstration for members of APRA (Australian Performing Rights Association).
3RRR Community Radio Performance Space "Many young engineers and bands never get the opportunity to mix on digital consoles of this quality", says Dave Houchin, 3RRR's Station Manager. "There's no doubt that this has had a huge impact on this exciting segment, where many of tomorrows stars, both on stage and behind the mixer, get to cut their teeth." "As well as the VENUE D-Show we are using Pro Tools LE and a range of M-Audio mics including the Aries vocal condenser which has proven to be a high quality microphone that punches well above its weight."

There is no doubt that this is a great asset, both for the local Melbourne music scene and for us as a company to showcase these amazing products.
