Two Artemis Light consoles, for Happy FM and Cool FM stations have joined Radio 3’s Summa, at Korea's KBS Radio. Kim Kiyong, deputy manager, Production Technology, KBS Radio, commented, “The Korean music scene is booming. We need to convey the crisp modern production sound of this exciting genre of music and that requires premium-quality consoles. The Calrec consoles are compact and powerful, which was exactly what we were looking for.”

KBS Radio 2, nicknamed Happy FM, is known for its reach across the country, airing K-pop, classical music, general entertainment, and news content. The 24-hour Cool FM is directed toward an older audience, playing mostly older K-pop music from the 90s – as well as other suitable music for a more mature audience, compared to Happy FM’s more modern set of tunes for the slightly younger generation.

“The Artemis Light is capable of processing the high calibre audio required for KBS’ popular stations, with its compact yet scalable control surface, which are features that truly set it apart from other consoles. It’s a privilege for us to expand our relationship with KBS Radio and to see a further strengthening in our consoles’ success in the Korean market,” said Anthony Harrison, sales manager - International, Calrec.
