A hit on the international music and theatre scene, as well as appearing at the Adelaide Fringe Festival and running a sell-out season at the Sydney Opera House, The Choir of Man is currently on extended tour around Australia.

The Choir of Man Fresh from the stages of a world tour – including the pre-eminent Edinburgh Festival Fringe in the UK – The Choir of Man is a feel-good musical with a stage show from the creative minds of Nic Doodson and Andrew Kay.

The show combines nine performers and occasional live instruments, along with a technical back-end up to the task of delivering quality audio worthy of international theatre.

Working behind the scenes to help bring The Choir of Man to life is Gideon Cozens, acting as the show’s FOH engineer on behalf of Optical Audio Productions. To help achieve the workflow and sound quality required, he has chosenn DiGiCo’s SD12 digital mixing console.

For this tour, Cozens decided on an SD12 fitted with a Dante card, and accompanied by a DiGiCo D2-Rack. Together with a couple of Mac Minis, this set-up provides a small but powerful system for engineering live audio and delivering playback in a tour-ready package. From the stage, the SD12 receives inputs from a set of radio mics for the performers, as well as a few FX mics for capturing live tap dancing. Where playback is concerned, the Dante card allows Cozens to stream audio in from both a main and backup Mac Mini running sound cue software.

‘The Dante capabilities of the SD12 also mean Cozens does not need any local inputs or external sound cards as part of the set-up, which reduces space and clutter significantly. ‘I love the SD12 as it is compact yet robust, and everything I need on it I can access quickly and easily,’ he says.
