For more than 15 years, Fits & Starts Productions’ HOW-TO Sound Workshops have been traveling around the United States providing pro audio training sessions for houses of worship and schools/colleges. Visiting approximately 36 cities each year, Chief Instructor Mike Sokol and the F&S team provide a full-day, hands-on opportunity to learn the essentials of setting up and running a sound system, and one of the primary tools they rely on is DiGiCo’s SD9 mixing console.

“We first took the SD9 out on the HOW-TO tours more than three years ago, and it’s been a prominent part of our setup since then,” says Fits & Starts Managing Partner Hector La Torre, who notes that the console serves as the workshop’s featured instructional digital mixer. Aside from carrying the main PA for the instructor, the SD9 is also is used to run music and signal so that attendees can see and hear how the console works and just how a digital console provides flexibility and overall cost-saving.

When asked why the DiGiCo desk was selected again this year, La Torre responded, “The SD9 showed us its excellent capabilities on a couple of our previous tours, so it was a simple choice this time around. The board has operated flawlessly despite being banged around in our road truck for months, so why take a chance on another console that might fail? I don’t want to see 40-50 frowning faces at any of my workshops. DiGiCo’s equipment is robust and cost-effective for the primary markets we serve, plus the manufacturer has always been sensitive to the market’s needs and delivered solid support. I have nothing but praise for them.”
