Soundcraft Studer has announced that Mike Stock, one of televisionâ€™s most successful audio engineers, will be on hand at the Harman booth (#C2619) at the NAB show on Wednesday, April 14 from 10 AM to 6 PM. NAB attendees are encouraged to visit the Harman booth to meet with Stock, and to see Soundcraft Studerâ€™s latest product offerings for the broadcast industry. Stockâ€™s visit is part of Soundcraft Studerâ€™s â€œMixing With Professionalsâ€? program, which centers around many of the industryâ€™s most accomplished audio engineers and their experiences with Soundcraft and Studer consoles.
Stock has served as production sound mixer on a variety of television programs, including â€œDr. Phil,â€? â€œThe Doctors,â€? â€œThe NFL on FOX,â€? â€œThe Bachelorâ€? and â€œThe Tonight Show with Conan Oâ€™Brien,â€? as well as numerous live events on the TV Guide Channel.
For â€œDr. Phil,â€? â€œThe Doctorsâ€? and â€œThe NFL on FOX,â€? Stock mixes
the audio using a Studer Vista 8 console. â€œI love mixing on the Vista 8,â€? Stock says. â€œIt has a very easy learning curve for such a sophisticated desk.â€?
According to Stock, the Vista 8â€™s flexibility is one of its most valuable assets. â€œI use the Vista 8 at Paramount Studios to mix â€˜Dr. Philâ€™ Monday through Wednesday and mix â€˜The Doctorsâ€™ on Thursday and Friday,â€? Stock says. â€œI donâ€™t have to patch a thing when making the transition between the two shows, I simply change a title on the desk.â€?
The Studer Vista 8 combines powerful broadcast features with dynamic automation to offer a highly sophisticated and flexible multipurpose live broadcast desk. The Control Bay design offers 10 faders in a small footprint, making it ideal for both fixed install broadcast and OB van applications. In addition, a sophisticated snapshot system and dedicated mute groups make this also the perfect choice for fixed install live applications. The Vista 8 also incorporates the worldwide acclaimed Vistonicsâ„¢ user interface.
