DiGiCo takes the center stage at Ragam 2018


Each year the small yet busy city of Kerala, Calicut city, celebrates one of the biggest annual inter-college fest Ragam. The vibrant youth fest is a cultural entity of National Institute of Technology, Calicut.

Previous editions of Ragam has seen some of the biggest artists and bands in the country like Sunidhi Chauhan , KK, Farhan Akhtar, Shaan, Sonu Nigam, Benny Dayal, Parikrama, Silk Route, Motherjane only to name a few. The fest was also headlined by popular international artists like Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie , Sunburn Campus featuring DJ Diego Miranda, Harrison, Zaeden and Morgan J.

The 13th Edition of this cultural and musical extravaganza was awe-inspiring for the headlining artists and for the energetic music lovers. This year, Bollywood music duo Vishal- Shekhar has headlined the Pro Show at Open Air Theatre and the FOH was equipped with DiGiCo SD10 console for the performance. Bengaluru based AV rental company-Total Productions provided the state-of-the-art DiGiCo SD10. The console was purchased from New Delhi based India Distributor of DiGiCo, Hi-Tech Audio Systems Pvt.Ltd.

“Of late, sound engineers have specifically started to ask for DiGiCo consoles for live mixing. The product is user-friendly with an intuitive interface and wide range of feature sets. With its high fader count, high input and buss counts, dynamic equalizers, the SD10 is a lucrative addition for our rental stock”, says Francis, proprietor of Total Productions.

Director-Sales of Hi-Tech Audio Systems, Nirdosh Aggarwal shares his market experience about DiGiCo, “At present the audio rental industry in India is flourishing. Rental company proprietors want to expand their business with innovative cutting-edge audio control equipments.” He further adds, “DiGiCo consoles are one of the most rider-compatible consoles in the industry. With our training sessions and live support services, we make sure that our clients’ experience with DiGiCo consoles is paramount.”


Training on the SD10 was provided by Vanshaj Sharma, DiGiCo Sound Engineer from Hi-Tech Audio Systems Pvt. Ltd., who adds, “In my line of profession, I come across various rental companies who own an amalgamation of audio inventory. The recent DiGiCo SD10 training session with Total Productions was an overwhelming experience. The team was very avid about the recently purchased SD10. I gave them a detailed introduction about the features of the console. The technical team of Total Production was amazed with the console’s high clarity digital processing, high quality preamplifiers and user-friendly workflow. The SD10 was put to the test during Vishal-Shekhar’s performance at Ragam Fest and undoubtedly the client was happy.”

Farhad Daruwalla, FOH Engineer for Vishal and Shekhar says,“I have been using and specifying DiGiCo consoles regularly in my tech riders since the past 7 years. The SD convert gives me the ability to seamlessly switch between different consoles across the entire SD range. At Ragam 2018 in Calicut I had an SD10 at FOH which I use regularly for Vishal and Shekhar. The stealth core 2 upgrade gives me a variety of features at my fingertips. With Digitubes combined with state of-the-art Dynamic Eqs and Compression, I don’t find the need to use any of the waves plugins while using the desk. The pristine sound quality, I/O capacity, reliability and flexible work surface make my life easy on tour even in the most demanding situations”

“We are pleased to associate with Total Production by providing the best from DiGiCo. SD10 console fit well with Total Production’s target of becoming a high performance production company, capable of handling any scale of show,” comments Rajan Gupta, Managing Director, Hi-Tech Audio Systems.
