BMP opts for DiGiCo SD10 & L-Acoustics K Series



2 stages, over 200+ musicians, 50+ artists and thousands of fans came together at Asia’s Largest Bollywood Music Festival - Bollywood Music Project (BMP). The festival was hosted at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi on 27th-28th January, for the second time by Event Capital & Talent Management.

For two days the capital saw some of the biggest headliners from Bollywood enthralling audiences. Farhan Akhtar, Papon, Vishal Bhardwaj, Euphoria, Nooran Sisters, Richa Sharma, Benny Dayal, Aditi Singh Sharma, Anusha Mani, Shilpa Rao , Shruti Pathak, Raftaar, Amitabh Bhattacharya, Kutle Khan and a multitude of artists across Bollywood music electrified the venue with their live performance.

One of India’s most cutting edge AV rental companies, with an impressive inventory and top of the line professional equipment - Udaipur based audio rental company Mega Sound, provided the sound production for the Stage 1 performance.

Digico SD 10 pumps up BMP

DiGiCo SD10 consoles were used for the front-of-house audio in both the stages, which were supplied by the British manufacturer's Indian distributor, Hi-Tech Audio Pvt. Ltd.

‘DiGiCo’s technical support and service are absolutely world class. It was a stellar show from an audio and visual standpoint. The SD system gives us a very cool way of handling a situation with multiple stages,’ says Siddharth Chauhan, Director of Mega Sound. ‘And moreover the technical support team of DiGiCo from Hi-Tech Audio Systems handled everything related to DiGiCo SD10 and the sound engineers enjoyed working on the console, smoothly. You can count on team Hi-Tech Audio for any support.’

‘Things are really easier for us with DiGiCo SD10. As we were using it for both stages at front-of-house, we have programmed the sessions for each artist four days before the show. This made managing the show so much easier, even for someone who is working on SD10 for the first time,’ says Vanshaj, Technical Engineer from Hi-tech Audio Systems.



Nirdosh Aggarwal, Director Sales, Hi-tech Audio Systems says, ‘There is always an amount of personal preference when it comes to choosing the right console for any given job, but for BMP audio production team what it comes down to is whether the consoles delivers the best possible sound for show. Vikram Mishra, Tanay Gajjar, Nikjil Mulay and few of the leading audio engineers of the country were behind the consoles at Bollywood Music Project. They appreciated what DiGiCo consoles are offering to make their job easy while working with various artists in this multi-genre stage. ‘

Bollywood’s eminent sound engineer Tanay Gajjar who was looking over the Stage 1 live mixing says, ‘DiGiCo is renowned for its support and the stability of its consoles. I like the workflow and flexibility they give me, making my work so easy and effortless during the show.’

‘I was using SD10 for Stage 2 FOH. The entire system was simple to set up and it all worked perfectly. During the event I’ve never had any stability issues, and the gain sharing at the rack gave us lots of headroom,’ says Tosief Shaikh, Mixing & Mastering Engineer.

‘It’s always a privilege for us to associate with Bollywood Music Project and a very good learning experience for the entire team. With the top-notch audio system brand like DiGiCo and working with ace sound engineers of India, we can assure that the show will go on without any hitch,’ concludes Rajan Gupta, Managing Director, Hi-Tech Audio Systems Pvt.Ltd.

L-Acoustics enthralls audiences

‘For such mega event you need the cutting edge PA system. And L-Acoustics was the apt choice at FOH that was used for Stage 1 performance,’ says Siddharth Chauhan, Director of Mega Sound. ‘The K2 system flexibility makes it suited to touring applications and outdoor productions. For BMP Stage 1 set-up, we’ve installed K2 as main PA, along with L-Acoustics Kara for center fills, KS 28 for subs and LA12x amplifiers powering up the entire FOH. All of these speakers combined to ensure a crisp, precise sound image across the whole venue, which is vital for delivering the powerful sound in this environment.’

‘L-Acoustics K2 system increases headroom of the system. It offers K1 performance in a rescaled package that makes it flexibly well-suited for both permanent installation and touring applications,’ says Vishrut V. Joshi, Chief System & Mix Engineer, Mega Sound.

Nirdosh Aggarwal, Director Sales, Hi-Tech Audio Systems says, “L-Acoustics is considered as the industry benchmarks. Its sonic performance and fully integrated package features make it a complete rider friendliness choice.”

The biggest takeaway one can have from this show was the imaging—no matter where you were in the venue, it was absolutely perfect. And that’s what the audience loved the most. You can hear the complete mix from every nook and corner around Stage 1.

“At the end, our greatest achievement is when the artists, musicians and sound engineers get that splendid sound through L-Acoustics. We understand the festival management’s requirements and that’s why we have recommended the best. No doubt the end result is always amazing with L-Acoustics,’ concludes Rajan Gupta, Managing Director, Hi-Tech Audio Systems Pvt.Ltd.
