Mega Sound Welcomes Digico SD5 for a Mega Future


India’s live music market is ‘booming’ mostly with Bollywood music live acts as well with high-end international artists. This has opened various avenues for rental companies and one of the names in the top league is Udaipur & Ahmedabad based Audio rental company- Mega Sound. The company already owns a massive L Acoustics inventory and recently they invested in their first DiGiCo SD5 console with SD Rack.

Mega Sound is expertise in Pro Audio, Stage Lighting & Trussing with an experience of 21 years & national presence in Udaipur & Ahmedabad. The SD5 console was supplied by DiGiCo’s India Distributor, Hi-Tech Audio Systems in New Delhi.

“The entire Mega Sound team is excited to welcome home India’s 4th DiGiCo SD5 console and we are proud to own it. In 2017 we purchased our first SD10 and with the recent purchase of SD5, we are more confident than ever before. Hi-Tech Audio Systems and Ian Staddon, VP of Sales - DiGiCo made this deal possible”, says Siddharth Chauhan, Managing Director of Mega Sound. He continues, “With the SD10 we supported high profile India artists such as Arijeet Singh , Atif Aslam, Sonu Nigam , Vishal Shekhar , Kailash Kher , Mika , Badshah , Sunidhi Chauhan, Salim Sulaiman, Shanker Ehsaan Loy, Kanika Kapoor, Ankit Tiwari, Pritam, KK, Shaan, Sukhvinder Singh, Shivamani, Papon, Javed Ali, Neha Kakkar, Neeti Mohan & many more. It was a smooth sailing with the SD10 at live concerts, conferences, big fat Indian wedding, and other such events. Our tech team is well-nourished with technical and operational skills on DiGiCo as provided by the impeccable guidance from Hi-Tech’s after sales support experts. So after one and half year without a second thought we decided to purchase DiGiCo SD5 to strengthen our audio arsenal.”

“From day one we met Siddharth Chauhan, the man behind the inception of Mega Sound; we knew that his vision will take Mega Sound to another level of recognition. We are very happy to fulfill his dreams with DiGiCo and also appreciate his know-how about various audio equipment and technology. The SD5 is another milestone for Mega Sound and we are proud to associate with the company,” shares Rajan Gupta, Managing Director of Hi-Tech Audio Systems.

Nirdosh Aggarwal, Director Sales of Hi-Tech Audio Systems shares his view on DiGiCo SD5. “The console has three 15-inch display touch screens for dedicated 3 banks of faders. Additionally, it has a metering bar with 24 meters. SD5 software is capable of processing 253 input channels and up to 124 Aux/Sub Groups. Moreover, the console has pre-installed standard optics which seamlessly connects to the SD Rack. The advantage of having an SD Rack is that it can install various cards like the new Stadius 32-bit IO cards, Dante, AVIOM and other such similar cards. For a dynamic company like Mega Sound who is booked throughout the year, the SD5 will surely make their 2019 calendar much busier.”

Diversity is very much obvious across the country when it comes to live music audience. The top live artists and live mixing engineers prefer DiGiCo consoles in their tech ride. On the hand Udaipur being a royal wedding destination, event management companies want to grab the market by offering top-notch audio support for live wedding music performance. Mega Sound is able to provide the best to these various live audio requirements in Udaipur as well as in other parts of India. DiGiCo consoles have always been the reliable partner for Mega Sound in this remarkable journey.

To conclude Rajan Gupta explains, “SD5’s sonic quality and functionality are outstanding. It can be used for anything from live concerts, broadcasting, sporting to global spectaculars. Mega Sound’s investment on the SD5 is a giant leap in their business and this will add more to their portfolio. Being the India distributor of the UK manufactured consoles, it is our responsibility to recommend the best suited DiGiCo consoles to our clients by understanding their nature of the business.”
