Babylon invests in SD8
TURKEY: Live music venue Babylon Istanbul is preparing for the new season with its brand new DiGiCo SD8 sound console. With its architecture, acoustic design, and technical equipment, Babylon is reportedly one of Turkey’s leading live music venues. As a multi-purpose performance centre in Beyoğlu the 300-400 capacity venue hosts concerts as well as theatre, dance, workshops and documentary screenings.
Presenting artist-friendly stages is a priority for Babylon İstanbul. It initially renovated its sound systems with L-Acoustics products in 2007. The main sound system now consists of L-Acoustics Arcs loudspeakers. Following this, Babylon İstanbul has added a DiGiCo SD8 sound console to its equipment.
Local DiGiCo distributor Elit Light and Sound Technologies, which is a technical sponsor of the venue, supplied the equipment. According to the distributor the ‘performance efficiency of the new desk will enable Babylon Istanbul engineers to work in an easier environment’.
