Currently each digital console has its own standard for the transmission of audio signals, so the user cannot always decide how to configure their snake. Pínanson offers digital snake solutions that adapt to any equipment, allowing total sound control on stage.
Every live sound technician knows the importance of a reliable audio snake for a quality sound job. Equipment adjusted to the needs and preferences of the technicians and criteria such as wiring, the organization of the stage or future predictions on the rest of the equipment are key elements when deciding which configuration to use.
Pinanson offers the possibility of making the equipment more flexible and maximizing its profitability, adapting the digital stage box that is available in a totally personalized way. The Pinanson audio snake makes the work easier and adds value to the rest of the equipment. The Pinanson Digi Rack Box offers speed and security in the connection, protection, of the digital Stage box and individualized handling of preamps.
