Paul Mac, Editor of Audio Media, goes to Helsinki to explore the Finnish broadcaster YLE's new outside broadcast truck. The OD-2 is YLE's new roadster, designed mainly for music. It has full recording, editing, mixing and transmission facilities built into the Mercedes frame. The truck is based around the new Lawo mc²80 console, which offers enough routing and processing possibilities to significantly reduce the amount of outboard and patch panels normally required in a truck of this size.

For Reno Nicastro, the 'best stuff' includes a Pro Tools HD recording system with a ProControl control surface, 14 Avalon microphone preamps, a Soundfield microphone, and Lexicon 480 reverb. 'I rung around and I talked to a load of people, and then I listened to a load of speakers,' he says, 'Everywhere you go has these Genelec speakers, I had a listen to them, I went to a couple of studios and the guys really raved about them, so I decided on them. I got a pair of Genelec 1038A as main monitors and a 5.1 setup using 1029As.

One of the results is CADIMEF, the Carelian Digital Media Factory.
