Music has always been a factor in the success of Conan,the TBS talk show created and hosted by comedian Conan O’Brien. In addition to the show’s Basic Cable Band, which features guitarist/leader Jimmy Vivino, Conan has hosted hundreds of guest musicians. The show's technical team recently brought its music production to the next level, installing a Roland M-5000 OHRCA Live Mixing Console to drive the Roland M-48 Live Personal Mixer units used by the house band. The new M-5000, installed and commissioned by live sound provider ATK Audiotek, has been in use throughout the current season.

ATK system designer Jeff Peterson says the M-5000 was the perfect match for the existing M-48 units, which have proved extremely reliable. "We needed to replace an aging existing console, and rather than continue to use the M-48 system as a standalone network, we decided on integrating the house band console into the system with the M-5000, which greatly increases the monitor system's overall efficiency and effectiveness."

The system is currently configured simply, with two Roland S-4000 Modular Digital Snakes for house band and production inputs, one Roland XI-REAC Expansion Interface and the REAC S-4000D Splitter and Power Distributor to the seven M-48s used by the house band.
