South Africa - Aaron King from Crotchet Music is an audio engineer renowned for his work in gospel music. He is now the owner of a DiGiCo Quantum 225 Digital Console, complete with a Waves upgrade purchased from DWR Distribution, with more upgrades in the pipeline.
"We've been discussing this investment for quite some time," says Kyle Robson from DWR Distribution. "When it comes to emerging technology, it's truly remarkable to witness Aaron enthusiastically embrace it. He's always on the lookout for the latest advancements, such as being the first in South Africa to purchase a KLANG:konductor earlier this year.”
Achieving success has been a slow but consistent journey. "My interest in audio dates back to high school," Aaron reflects, mentioning his upbringing in a church environment where he gained insights into the technical aspects. Despite studying accounting, he found himself consistently drawn to audio and the vibrant gospel scene, which constitutes a significant part of his work. Given his hands-on role as a Front of House Engineer, the DiGiCo Quantum 225 was a suitable match to meet his specific needs.
“First of all, it’s an easy workflow going from studio work to the live environment, which is a big advantage for me,” says Aaron. “The other key benefit is its seamless integration with Waves and Klang.”
Kyle adds: "Just take a look at Aaron’s setup on the Quantum with all those screens. Aaron has kitted his Quantum 225 with an additional screen to control and monitor the left bank of the console as well as a second touch screen for control of Waves plugins which all tours together in the DiGiCo flight case.”
