Digico has signed an exclusive distribution deal with Swiss firm Tonspur AG.
“We have been coordinating the audio for Montreux (Jazz Festival) since 2007 and our first experience with Digico was when they became the official console sponsor in 2009,” said Tonspur owner Hansjürg Meier. “We immediately realised that there was an enormous difference in sound quality, compared to other digital mixing desks. We were also really impressed by the flexibility of the consoles and the use of the latest technology, like FPGA processing, which minimised the physical footprint.”
Tonspur has been selling the manufacturer's consoles into Switzerland and Liechtenstein since 2010, and saw becoming an official Digico distributor as "a natural next step."
“Digico is a very proactive company, which has a trickle down effect in terms of sales,” Meier continued. “With the T versions of consoles – from the SD7T to the SD9T and SD10T – theatre productions can have the tools they really need. We already have two key rental customers investing in Digico and the figure is set to rise.
“We have also seen an increase in use in the professional installation market – the routing flexibility of Digico consoles and tools like the UB MADI interface, DiGiGrid and Purple Box means we can satisfy all the needs of any serious audio production.”
Several times a year, Tonspur hosts an in-house seminar event, providing end users with an opportunity to discuss the consoles they are working with, as well as the features they need.
Meier added: “We always have feedback from the engineers and the best thing is that Digico listens. We often see the wishes and hints passed through us implemented in the next software update. Their technical support is state-of-the-art. They know what they are talking about and are willing to help, even in the most stressful situations.”
“We like to work with companies that are as passionate about our products as we are. The team at Tonspur definitely are,” commented Digico managing director James Gordon. “We’ve built up a close working relationship with them through our collaboration at Montreux and we know that they will help us gain more ground in Switzerland."
