Just pre lockdown we had the pleasure of hosting Sophie Monk at DG’s. Rather than heading all the way to Sydney when the Covid breakout was starting to ramp up, Channel Nine decided to use the DG’s facility for Sophie’s voice grabs for her Beauty and The Geek show. With her being a local central coast resident it was the obvious choice and things went very smoothly. Nine’s producer was able to be on speaker phone for the whole session, using the SSL Origin’s excellent talk back system to communicate through to the live room. The microphone of choice was the mighty Neumann U87 feeding Pro Tools via a Neve DPA Preamp and Urei Compressor, all engineered by Marshall Cullen. We hope to see Sophie back one day for more of this or one of her music projects. Our wall sign-offs have a nice new one!
