Stagetec Crescendo Delivers for Don’t Forget the Lyrics
During the summer, Touring Video supplied a temporary TV production studio outside of Studio 11 at the famous Culver Studios. The setup was used for almost two months to record over 160 episodes of the popular Fox game show “Don’t Forget the Lyrics”. For the audio control room, they fitted a Stagetec Crescendo digital console with 32 faders, 120 Input channels, and both stereo and surround sum busses.
The Crescendo console and its NEXUS STAR processing rack were next to the A1 operator in the audio control room, while the other NEXUS base devices (aka “I/O frames”) were placed where they were needed: on the set, in the videotape machine room and in the audio booth. The Crescendo, its NEXUS STAR, and the Base Devices were interconnected via fiber optic cables, a relief to the A2s who were happy not to have to pull hundreds of feet of heavy multi-core analog cabling throughout.
GMA, LLC, Stagetec specialists here in the US, struck the deal with Touring Video for the 32 fader Crescendo and supported the session on site. Doug Armstrong, owner of Touring Video, was pleased with the support that he received from GMA and Stagetec. “My whole team was impressed with how quickly the console setup came together and with the sound. I was also impressed with the fact that the backend was virtually silent which enabled us to install the DSP rack in the audio control room.”
