Spain - Located in Murcia, Odiseo is a venue dedicated to the pursuit of pleasure. Boasting three restaurants, a sports bar, a nightclub, a show room and multiple terraces, as well as Europe’s largest cantilevered pool suspended 27m above the ground, Odiseo’s space of 15,500m2 is distributed across three levels. The venue’s audio infrastructure includes DiGiCo 4REA4 processors and a Quantum225console supplied by RMS Proaudio, DiGiCo’s distributor in Spain.
Odiseo is owned by Orenes Group, one of Spain’s fastest growing businesses in the leisure sector, Orenes Group hired sound design consultant Lolo Moldes, who worked in close collaboration with the team at RMS Proaudio to deliver the audio installation.
“When Orenes Group contacted me about the Odiseo project at the beginning of 2019, I was immediately hooked,” says Moldes. “Architecturally stunning and unique in every way, I was motivated by the team’s ambition to have the premium, comprehensive AV infrastructure installed at this new venue, which would have the same look and flair as some of the top Las Vegas entertainment spots.”
After careful consideration, DiGiCo systems were chosen because of their straightforward architecture, solid sound quality and powerful processing.
“From the very beginning, we knew the systems we install will be used by Odiseo’s in-house engineers for our own shows, as well as visiting sound engineers for the international artists performing at the venue,” adds Odiseo’s technical director Isidro Carrasco. “Therefore, ease of use was one of our key priorities. The sound quality and the system being future proof for many years to come were also very important consideration points, as well as the system being rider friendly. DiGiCo ticked all our boxes, so we were happy to proceed with the installation.”
Originally, Seville’s audiovisual equipment supplier, RMS Proaudio, installed three DiGiCo SD11i consoles in different areas of the venue. Following the launch of Quantum225in 2021, Odiseo’s team swapped one of the SD11is for this small-format digital console with a powerful Quantum Engine.
“We were pleased with our SD11i consoles but, when the Quantum225 hit the market, we did what was already part of Orenes Group’s DNA – invested in the latest technology. And we were thrilled to work with the new Quantum console,” says Carrasco.
As well as the consoles, DiGiCo’s 4REA4 system processors were also deployed to provide routing, processing and mix control across Odiseo’s multi-space venue.
For the in-ear mixing, RMS Proaudio supplied a KLANG:vokal immersive in-ear mixing processor that allows up to 12 musicians to create their own immersive in-ear monitor mix from 24 mono or stereo sources, perfect for Odiseo’s varied programme of visiting and resident artists.
