AZTEC BUYS INTO GB
As a company providing events management and production for major-league
corporate clients, Aztec Events’ service has to be second to none. So when
the company needed new mixing desks, it opted for a total of four Soundcraft
“We bought the mixers to use in conferencing environments, although we do
events including product launches and fashion shows, as well as meetings of
all sorts,” explained Aztec warehouse manager Samer Sahmani. “One of the
reasons we went for them is that our older desks are Spirit by Soundcraft,
which we have had for some years.
“We have had good experiences with them and they are in constant use on a
daily basis,” Sahmani added. “We have been very satisfied with the quality
of sound, as well as their reliability and low maintenance requirements.
“Mixing desks aren't something you buy on a daily basis. When we bought
Soundcaft the second time round, we did so in the knowledge that we would be
using them for years to come.
“We did look at other makes,” Sahmani revealed, “but it was a combination of
cost, quality and the level of control we had with the GB4, as well as our
past experience, that formed the basis of our decision. In addition, we
heard positive feedback from other companies that were already using the
GB4, which is always a good sign.”
Aztec chose the 16-channel configuration of the GB4, which also offers two
stereo channels and four group outputs. So is it true that the company is
now looking at the larger GB8?
“Correct!” Sahmani affirmed. “It’s built on the same basis as the GB4 but
with four stereo channels and eight group outs. For some of the more dynamic
work we do, especially if it involves a live band, the GB8 would be ideal.”
Aztec Communications Group Ltd is now part of Corporate Audio Visual Plc.
