Singapore - Mahajak Trio recently supplied veteran audio director John Simpson with a Studer by Harman Vista 5 digital mixing console for the second season of Asia’s Got Talent.
Asia’s Got Talent is the regional version of the popular Got Talent franchise. The show’s record-breaking first season established the live reality competition as the region’s most powerful platform for launching Asia’s next generation of star performers.
Produced by Astro Productions, episodes are filmed live before a studio audience at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore and Pinewoods Iskandar in Malaysia. Astro hired Mahajak Trio Electronics to provide the show with a broadcast audio mixing solution with premium sound quality and an intuitive user interface. Mahajak selected a Studer Vista 5 mixing console for its innovative features and user-friendly operation.
“The producers wanted to be sure that the production audio was superbly mixed using the best equipment,” said Lee Chin Kah, senior technical manager, Mahajak Trio. “They were very satisfied with the Studer Vista 5 we provided, which met all of their technical requirements and is extremely easy to use. Studer consoles offer advanced functionality and the best sound quality in the broadcast market today.”
The show’s producers brought in sound mixer John Simpson to serve as audio director for seasons one and two of Asia’s Got Talent. As a long-time user of Studer mixers, one of Simpson’s favourite features is vMIX, an automated microphone-mixing algorithm based on gain sharing. vMIX helps Simpson keep complex mixes with several active microphones under control during on-air performances.
“The producers wanted to make sure I had the best tools at my disposal, so I asked for a Studer Vista 5,” said Simpson. “The Vista 5 has a reliable and intuitive surface to work on. We used software version 5.1 along with the excellent vMIX automated mixing function. vMIX automatically adjusts all open microphone levels based on who’s talking at any given moment.
