Spectrum Sound makes Quantum move

USA - Over the past four decades, Spectrum Sound has grown to become one of the country’s leading suppliers of pro audio equipment rentals and production services. In tandem with that growth, the Nashville-based company has steadily been investing in DiGiCo mixing consoles, starting with its first pair of compact SD9 desks purchased for MercyMe’s Welcome to the New tour in 2014.
Over the recent pandemic downtime, while many companies were downsizing, Spectrum conversely chose to embrace DiGiCo’s new Quantum platform in a major way with the purchase of multiple Quantum7, Quantum338 and Quantum225 desks, adding to its already impressive fleet of DiGiCo consoles.
“DiGiCo’s SD7 has long been considered the touring sound industry’s premier console, and with the availability of the powerful Quantum engine, a number of our clients were specifically asking for the new Quantum7, so we purchased six,” says Spectrum Sound live sound sales manager Bobby George. “We’ve had great success with the SD-Range over the years, and the Quantum7 gives our touring engineers a stellar platform they can move toward as their artist needs grow, offering higher channel counts, dual engines for redundancy, and Nodal Processing for monitors, as well as Mustard Processing and the Spice Rack.
“There has also been tremendous interest and demand for DiGiCo’s Quantum338 and smaller Quantum225 desks, so we decided to sell off our entire rental inventory of SD10 consoles and replace them with these, and they have been very well received so far.”
Spectrum live sound account manager Andrew Sullivan notes that the new Quantum7 consoles, in particular, have been used on many recent productions, including shows by the Nashville Symphony, Thomas Rhett, Elevation Worship, Need To Breathe, One Republic, and the K-LOVE Fan Awards, among others.
