DiGiCo Gets Twinned with Belgian Company Twin4U
As the company name suggests, the Belgian-based audio, lighting and video company is owned by identical twin brothers Christof and Philippe Peirsman, both of whom have a background in music and technology and have graduated from the renowned SAE (Sound and Audio Engineering) Institute in Rotterdam.
This has played no small part in their desire to stock the best sounding equipment – the company owns an SD8-24, an SD9 and an SD11 - for the work they do across a variety of disciplines including concert touring, theatre, recording, corporate events and educational seminars.
“We’re sound and light engineers with passion and an open mind about the requirements for both the audience and the artist,” says Christof Peirsman. “From the very start, we were believers in DiGiCo equipment. It has so many strong points for audio engineers: all DiGiCo’s consoles have a really nice sound, there are extended routing possibilities, state-of-the-art, reliable software with regular updates, physical compactness, similar operation across all consoles in the range, great value for money and, with Stealth Digital Processing, a big processor capacity and no hiccoughs.”
TWIN4U’s most recent projects have been a touring production of the musical Pauline & Paulette, that has been traveling around Flemish Belgium for around four months, on an SD9 , Kaatje, a children’s theatre production from Belgian public television station VRT, which utilizes the SD11, as well as a number of corporate events where the SD-8 has been deployed. From 2015 a new theatre production based on popular Flemish police television series Aspe will also benefit from TWIN4U’s DiGiCo consoles.
“We just love working with DiGiCo mixers,” says Philippe. “We also like the way the company operates, particularly their openness and willingness to listen to the expectations of their customers.”
