"The Nord C2D is the most adaptable keyboard I’ve ever come across." he says. "It can be a tone-wheel organ, a vintage euro organ, a pipe organ or two attached, programable midi keyboards, all of which I make use of at various times, and its internal sounds are infinitely useable".

From the Pro world: Indigo at the O2 installs twin Soundcraft Vi7000 consoles

Freelance house sound engineer, Matt Valentine, was one of the people involved in specifying the consoles.  “The Vi7000 is an incredibly user-friendly desk,” he stated. “For a lot of inexperienced engineers coming through we provide a ‘three minute overview’ because the desk works in channel strips and it’s so visual … there’s not page after page in the background to trip you up.”
