Electrocraft adopts Avid’s S6L
INDIA: Mumbai-based rental company Electrocraft has added a pair of Avid Venue S6L systems to its roster. The purchase comprised of a Venue S6L 32D and Venue S6L 24D system, with the S6L system being favoured for its feature set, workflow and speed of operation. Electrocraft has already deployed the S6L 32D for a few large scale events, including a sold out concert by superstar Bollywood composer duo Salim-Sulaiman at Laxmi Lawns in Pune, which drew an attendance of approximately 10,000 people. The purchase was made through Indian Avid distributor, Ansata.
‘We’ve worked with Leslie and his team at Ansata several times before, and we’ve known them to be a company that has always maintained high standards – be it the great range of products that they represent, the sales experience or the impeccable quality of service and technical support that they offer,’ commented Electrocraft director, Roger Drego. ‘They also provided our team with extremely helpful training support. When you invest into next generation technology, it’s important that you work with good people who know their technology and are able to back you up on anything whenever needed.’
Electrocraft chief audio engineer Yohann Fernandes, offered some feeback on the S6L having used it for Salim-Sulaiman. ‘We were working an extremely tight schedule for this show, and this is exactly where we experienced how efficient the system really is in terms of setup and sound checks. A quick run through and we were pretty much good to go. Working during the show, some key features like gain tracking really impressed us. Plus, the system’s efficient layers, screens and DSP engine made working through any scenario quite easy. Finally, the fact that the system sports Avid software that we’re all familiar with, made it an absolute breeze to navigate around the new surface.’
‘The Venue S6L will help team Electrocraft in solving challenges of even the most demanding live sound productions, and deliver only the best sound quality, while enjoying familiar Venue workflows with total show file compatibility,’ added Ansata’s Leslie Lean. ‘We’re extremely happy to note all the raving reviews from Roger and his team, and we wish them the very best to come.’
