For the second year in a row, Digidesign supported XM Productions/Effanel in the production of the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) telecast by providing an ICON integrated console environment for the L7 mobile recording truck that delivered music mixes for every artist who appeared in this year’s broadcast.
For the VMA telecast, the system allowed the show’s music mixers to capture the rehearsals and create snapshots—complete with effects, levels, EQs and dynamics—for recall during the actual live performances. By recording the rehearsals, the mixers were able to refine and prepare for the live show with more accuracy and better sound quality than in the past.
John Harris, XM Productions/Effanel mixer, and Jay Vacari produced the live performance mixes for the VMA telecast.
