DiGiCo springs into action

USA:

After using the same audio system for almost 10 years, the First Presbyterian Church of Bonita Springs in Florida decided to upgrade with two DiGiCo SD9 mixing consoles, which were installed by All Pro Integrated Systems. The installation took place over two phases within a year and the consoles were set up in the church’s main worship centre and its smaller, secondary venue called CenterPoint.

‘The system we replaced was fine when we put it in nearly a decade ago, but as time went on, it seemed to get harder to do what we wanted to accomplish,’ said Tommy Hillegass, the First Presbyterian Church’s media manager. ‘I really wanted to incorporate more of the Waves stuff and that is just so smooth on the SD9. I often felt constrained on our previous console, but not anymore. As an example, we run five Earthworks FlexWand mics for our choir. I can now run three EQ and compression plug-ins on each mic channel to really shape the sound the way I want to and it’s never a problem. That was simply not the case with our former system.’

The setup also included a 32-input D-Rack for CenterPoint and two 32 x 8 D-Racks for the main worship centre. One was permanently fitted for FOH while the other rack was used for onstage I/O expansion. A Waves SoundGrid system, an array of choir mics by Earthworks and a setup of Danley loudspeakers were also included. ‘The portable D-Rack was an important addition, especially for some of the touring shows,’ added Mark Salamone, sales manager of All Pro. ‘Prior to having that, all input to the sound system was done via floor pockets. While those can be great for regular services in terms of keeping things neat and tidy, when it comes to the greater audio needs of a touring show, they were actually quite limiting and could even cause a tripping hazard. Being able to place inputs where they were needed onstage and send everything back to the console via MADI was an important addition.’
