Each year the small yet busy Keralan city of Calicut, celebrates one of India’s biggest annual inter-college fests, Ragam, a vibrant youth fest organized by the National Institute of Technology, Calicut. This year, for the 13th Edition, Bengaluru based AV rental company Total Productions provided the audio system, with a DiGiCo SD10 at the Front of House mix position at the Open Air Theatre.

This cultural and musical extravaganza saw Bollywood music duo Vishal- Shekhar headline the Pro Show at the Open Air Theatre, making good use of the DiGiCo SD10 console, which was purchased from DiGiCo’s New Delhi based India Distributor, Hi-Tech Audio Systems Pvt.Ltd.

“Of late, even more sound engineers in India have started appreciating DiGiCo consoles for live mixing. The product is user-friendly with an intuitive interface and wide range of feature sets,” says Francis, proprietor of Total Productions. “With its high fader count, high input and buss counts and dynamic equalizers, the SD10 is a lucrative addition for our rental stock.”

“At present the audio rental industry in India is flourishing,” adds Hi-Tech Audio Systems Director-Sales, Nirdosh Aggarwa. “Rental company proprietors want to expand their business with innovative, cutting-edge audio control equipment. DiGiCo consoles are one of the most rider-compatible consoles in the industry. With our training sessions and live support services, we make sure that our clients’ experience with DiGiCo consoles is exceptional.”

Training on the SD10 was provided by Vanshaj Sharma, DiGiCo Sound Engineer from Hi-Tech Audio Systems Pvt. Ltd., who adds, “In my profession, I come across various rental companies who own an amalgamation of audio inventory. The recent DiGiCo SD10 training session with Total Productions was an overwhelming experience. The team was very enthusiastic about the recently purchased SD10. I gave them a detailed introduction about the features of the console. The technical team of Total Production was amazed with the console’s high clarity digital processing, high quality preamplifiers and user-friendly workflow. The SD10 was put to the test during Vishal-Shekhar’s performance at Ragam Fest and undoubtedly the client was happy.”

“I have been using and specifying DiGiCo consoles regularly in my tech riders since the past seven years and SD Convert gives me the ability to seamlessly switch between different consoles across the entire SD-Range,” adds Farhad Daruwalla, FOH Engineer for Vishal and Shekhar. “At Ragam 2018, I had an SD10 at FOH which I use regularly for Vishal and Shekhar. StealthCore2 gives me a variety of features at my fingertips and, with DiGiTuBes combined with state of-the-art Dynamic EQs and Compression. The pristine sound quality, I/O capacity, reliability and flexible work surface make my life easy on tour, even in the most demanding situations.”

“We are pleased to associate with Total Production by providing the best from DiGiCo,” concludes Rajan Gupta, Managing Director, Hi-Tech Audio Systems. “The SD10 console fits well with Total Production’s target of becoming a high performance production company, capable of handling any scale of show.”
