Soccer SidekickCalrec’s Soccer Sidekick iPad app is ‘an assistive mixing tool’, designed to simplify the job of tracking the on-field audio during a football/soccer game. It provides an alternative approach for highly experienced operators while allowing those with less experience to create a quality mix, simply.

One of the many tasks the audio operator must manage is the capture of all of on-pitch events while minimising crowd and venue noise. The operator follows the action using a mentally challenging workflow that requires projecting a 2D location on the pitch onto the 1D row of faders on the desk, fading up only the most appropriate microphones for any particular moment in play.

Soccer Sidekick provides a more intuitive and straightforward interface: after defining the position and direction of the pitch microphones around an aerial image of a pitch on the display, the operator simply touches the corresponding area on the screen to indicate one or more locations of interest. Soccer Sidekick then calculates the optimal contribution from each microphone to best capture events at those locations and moves the appropriate faders on the desk.

The operator can take over control of the faders manually at any time, maintaining complete control.
