Canada’s Music Mix Mobile Strengthens Audio Complement On Mobile Production Truck

Music Mix Mobile, an award-winning Canadian mobile production company has installed a new mc²56 audio mixing console from Lawo as part of a complete upgrade of its Voyager production truck that is used for music recording and live broadcasts.

Joel Singer, co-owner and chief engineer of Music Mix Mobile (M3), said the goal with the new Lawo console was to create an even more powerful remote music truck, with more inputs for larger projects. In addition to the mc²56 console, Voyager’s new audio gear complement includes two Lawo DALLIS mic-preamp racks with more I/O for larger events easily added by connecting additional DALLIS modular stageboxes.

The Voyager now includes six DSP cards supporting over 560 DSP channels and the use of dual master cards in both the console core and all DALLIS frames. This provides redundancy to support live-to-air 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 and the use of dual master cards in both the console core and all DALLIS frames providing dual-star redundancy to support critical live-to-air applications.

M3’s Voyager unit had its inaugural run with the new, larger Lawo system at the Tidal Music Festival in Brooklyn, New York. Planned follow-up projects include the iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina 2017 in Miami, and the Latin Grammy Awards in Las Vegas both in November.
