The Cadac name has been synonymous with premium quality audio mixing consoles for over 45 years.
From the earliest recording studio desks in the late 1960s, which recorded classic tracks from major international artists, through to the live sound consoles found in prestigious theatres and on global concert tours, Cadac has always set the benchmark for quality. Nowadays, many Cadac recording desks are still in operation in studios all over the world. In fact there are few brands that can match Cadac’s unparalleled pedigree in the world of professional audio. So much so that Solution One decided to position itself as a reseller of the brand in France, in agreement with Audio2, their official distributor there.
In 1984 a sound engineer, Martin Levan, from Morgan Studios was asked to put on a live show, Little Shop of Horrors and this resulted in the first Cadac desk built for live theatre. The spec for the console dictated that is should be of “studio quality audio” and that the front-to-back dimension could not be deeper than a row of seats. This was the start of Cadac dominating the theatre market with nearly 70% of theatre shows using Cadac desks. The longest continually serving Cadac console in London was on Phantom of the Opera where it was used from 1984 until 2008, providing 24 years continuous service!
Not all Cadac consoles are found in recording studios and theatres, they are also the console of choice for concert touring for many internationally acclaimed performers including; Rolling Stones, Van Halen, Franz Ferdinand, Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli, Status Quo, The Beach Boys, Tom Jones and Bryan Adams.
Today, Cadac have a range of both analogue and innovative digital consoles aimed at the live sound market and the company is continually investing heavily in research and engineering to develop the next generation of digital consoles. Currently Cadac’s flagship digital console the CDC eight has been deployed in a variety of applications ranging from theatre shows and major stadium tours to Houses of Worship and broadcast.
