Aviom's current version of the personal mixer, the A-16II, is known for giving musicians the ability to create custom monitor mixes tailored to their individual needs, while making the monitor engineer's job significantly easier. In addition to offering the ability to create up to 16 presets per unit, the A-16IIs are recognized for their well-proven ease of use and compatibility with many popular front-of-house consoles.
“We are very proud that Aviom's Personal Mixers have become the tried and true choice within the audio industry,” says Aviom President and Co-Founder, Carl Bader. “The A-16IIs have been used by everyone from world-class artists to the newest generation of audio professionals, and we have been so pleased to see this tradition continue on stage and in facilities around the world.”
Professional recording artists can find the ever-familiar Pro16 Personal Mixers being used in more places than just the stage. Over the years, the Personal Mixers have been installed as part of the cue system in recording studios around the world from Australia's Heliport Studios, Germany's Sound Trekker Studios, and Denmark's Medley Studios to The Bamboo Room and Cottonhill Studios in the United States.
The A-16IIs are a constant on many Broadway productions as well, where they are used as part of the monitoring setup for the orchestras of shows such as Promises, Promises; Come Fly Away and La Cage aux Folles. Aviom's foray into the musical theater goes beyond the big lights of New York City as its Pro16 Personal Mixers are also used on the German stage production of BUDDY –The Buddy Holly Musical and the Paris sets of Zorro the Musical and The Lion King, as well as other productions throughout Europe.
Aviom Personal Mixers are also permanently installed in theaters and multipurpose halls throughout the world for all types of musical performances. Mazowsze, Poland's national folk song and dance ensemble, installed the mixing system in its newly constructed theater located at the European Regional and National Culture Promotion Center in Karolin, Poland. The state-of-the-art Spectacle-Education Hall houses the Aviom Pro16 system for the most demanding concerts and musical events. In Japan, the New National Theatre Tokyo uses Aviom Personal Mixers in each of the venue's three theaters. When the newly built, 400-seat performance arts venue, Theatre at the Mill, located in Belfast, Ireland, needed a reliable way to monitor sound for its premiere production, a staging of the hit musical Sweeney Todd, it cast Aviom A-16II Personal Mixers in a major supporting role. From their success with Sweeney Todd, the personal mixers have become an important part of the theater's monitoring setup.
Beyond the professional recording and live musical performances, Aviom's Pro16 Personal Mixers provide several uses within educational settings. While some schools install the gear in studios for audio classes, others rely on the mixers for their theater productions and courses. At Canada's University of Lethbridge, the Aviom Personal Mixers serve a multitude of functions for the school including music recording, theater production and traditional campus events. Ball State University's Music Technology Program uses the system in its studios to provide hands-on experience in audio production, digital music technology and music creation. Aviom also provides assistance for the recording facilities at Towson University and Widener University.
