Apex purchase the first SD7 in Scotland

Apex's SD7 at FOH for Party At The Palace

Our new MJF-210 monitors with The View

Apex Acoustics are pleased to announce that they are the first company in Scotland to purchase a DiGiCo SD7.

The SD7, DiGiCo’s flagship console, is the most popular digital audio console in the world and can currently be seen on theatre productions such as Matilda, Book of Mormon, The Lion King, The Commitments and was previously on Ghost, Viva Forever! The console has also been on music tours, gigs and major events such as Cher, U2, Pharrell Williams, Iron Maiden, Scouting for Girls, George Michael and the London 2012 Olympics.

The SD7 is now available to hire from Apex Acoustics and we can provide one of DiGiCo’s racks or solutions with the console. We regularly ship equipment to companies and venues across the UK so can happily provide the console for any event, tour or gig. Our SD7 made it’s debut at Party At The Palace music festival in Linlithgow which featured headliners Simple Minds, Deacon Blue with other acts such as The View, Horse, Hue and Cry and many others performing.

In addition to the DiGiCo SD7, Apex Acoustics have also added other items to their hire stock recently.

To coincide with the SD7 investment, Apex Acoustics have invested in an Aviom D-16c A-Net card. The D-16c A-Net Card provides a 16-channel Pro16 output and is compatible with all D and SD series consoles which support the SD-Rack.

As well as the card, Apex have invested in Aviom A-16II Personal Mixers. The A-16II is a 16-channel stereo digital mixer designed to allow performers to create custom monitor mixes on stage or in the studio. The stereo output on the mixer can drive in-ear monitors (IEM’s) or headphones. It’s easy-to-use interface allows a performer to quickly modify a mix without distracting from performing live or in the studio.

Our rental stock of Meyer Sound continues to grow as well as we have invested in Meyer Sound MJF-210 powered on stage monitors. As one of only two companies in the UK to own these speakers, we are thrilled to have used them recently on Party At The Palace and for their size, the audio quality is phenomenal.

We have also added a DPA SC4098 supercardiod podium microphone to our stock. Part of the d:screet series, the SC4098 offers high audio quality and sleek design with high rejection of radio frequency interference.

In addition to all this, we have also invested in our infrastructure by adding a new line array tower to our stock. The Work WT 500 has a load capacity of slightly less than our current VMB towers but, at a smaller size and weight these towers are exceptional quality. They are available to hire for the same price as our VMB towers.

Lastly, due to the demand of corporate work we are happily undertaking just now, we have added more items to our AV infrastructure. One of these items is a new projection screen. Our Draper screen has a 16:9 ratio with a size of 291cm x 161cm. It comes with front and rear screens and is available to hire for any projection required event.

These investments are all thanks to our customers, clients and staff who believe in hiring Apex Acoustics for their events and productions. Thank you to all those who have given us our busiest summer on record. All these items have now been added to our hire list which you can access in the 'Hire' section of our website.
