DeHerrera Event Services owner Wayne DeHerrera recently purchased two of Ashly Audio’s new digiMIX24 digital mixers to use on smaller jobs.

 “We do a lot of meetings, small conferences, and celebrations,” DeHerrera explained. “We needed something that had all of the functionality, sound quality, and reliability of our larger consoles, but until the Ashly digiMIX24 came along, smaller consoles always came up short on at least one of those requirements. We’ve been using Ashly equalizers and processors for years, and they’ve always been reliable, high-quality pieces of equipment.”  

The team has used the new mixers at a Dan and Shay concert, at 14 area graduation ceremonies, and at other events, such as an MMA cage fight.  

“When I first saw the cut-sheet for the Ashly digiMIX24, I was skeptical of its single moving fader,” DeHerrera said. “But after I got my hands on it, I realized that it becomes whatever I need at the moment. The workflow on the touchscreen is so well thought out that it takes noticeably fewer moves to accomplish a task compared to our larger consoles, and the fader is there to make the moves intuitive and easy. People have no trouble learning it, and my crew has made good use of Ashly’s iPad app. They can walk the event space and tune the system or mix remotely. Every input, output, and bus has plenty of powerful DSP so we don’t feel at a loss for the features of our larger consoles.” 

DeHerrera says that he plans to purchase two more Ashly digiMIX24s in preparation to cover the five stages of Pueblo’s annual Chili & Frijoles Festival, an event that draws over 100,000 people to downtown Pueblo.
