Brooklyn Park, MN (May 10, 2021) — Living Word Christian Center (LWCC) in Brooklyn Park, MN recently updated the audio system in its 3,000-seat, fan-shaped sanctuary on 75th Avenue with a new DiGiCo Quantum338 mixing console paired with an SD-Rack equipped with 32-bit ADC/DAC cards and ST Optics.
Locally-based integrator Audio Logic Systems supplied and installed the new gear, and also simultaneously upgraded the church’s existing DiGiCo SD8-24 monitor console’s SD-Rack with ST fiber-optic connectors, putting both consoles and SD-Racks on an Optocore loop. With plans to expand their musical offerings in the future, the ability to accommodate an increasing channel count was a key factor behind the upgrades, according to LWCC lead audio engineer Scott Fahy.
Fahy shares mixing time on the new Q338 with another individual who is no stranger to the DiGiCo platform—Robert “Cubby” Colby, a locally-based FOH audio engineer who has worked with Prince, Britney Spears, Phil Collins/Genesis, Shakira, Juanes and many other top names in popular music. He has been volunteering to help mix at LWCC for three years now, on and off, as his touring schedule has permitted. As a longtime user of DiGiCo consoles—particularly the large-format SD7 and SD5—Colby said he enjoyed the new Quantum console.
“I was immediately taken by the three 17-inch screens and meterbridge hood—it’s a beautiful-looking and beautiful-sounding console,” Colby said. “Having 38 faders on the top layer gives you a great handle knowing you will be able to arrange your ‘go-to’ inputs, returns, control groups and subgroups in any fashion. It’s amazing what two more faders on that layer can do for you! As to what you’re used to seeing on the SD-Range, the layout is very similar and familiar. The faders and knobs are different but still perfectly accurate. DiGiCo has also added 32-bit converters to local mic/line and the eight local line outputs, which is sweet.”
