Michel Turco

Sound Engineer

  • In my professional backline work I’ve often come across Messrs Lanen and Salmiéri, whose musicianship has always earned my greatest respect. So I’ve kept a close watch on their journey with the French brand Prodipe. And I’ve been able to see for myself that Prodipe creates products of exceptional quality which I now use every day in the studio and on the backline.

    When you test a Prodipe product, you recognise that the quality flowing from Claude Salmiéri and Ludovic Lanen’s skills is the same quality you would expect from a major brand. Prodipe has provided a solution to the age-old problem: “Why do we have one level of sound quality for pros and another for everyone else?”

    I’ve been using Prodipe in every imaginable studio and backline situation, with well-known performers who are often enthusiastic about the standard of the equipment.

    The third millennium will belong to the clever and the bold. Congratulations to Prodipe for being both.



Born into a family of musicians, Michel Turco began playing drums at the age of 7. When he was 11, he was a member of various orchestras, and he later tried his hand with different rock groups.

When he was 16, he and his family opened a recording studio in Saint Etienne: STUDIO MAG. Being involved with this project gave him an insight into all the various strands of the music profession and after the creation of MAG SCENE (sound and light provider) a few years later, he discovered a new passion for live sound, which complemented his career as a musician.

Over many years on stage and in the studio he has accompanied and worked with Age tendre et tête de bois, Michel Delpech, Catherine Lara, Sheila, Isabelle Aubret, Chico & The Gypsies, La Compagnie Créole, Hervé Vilard, Francis Lalanne, Annie Cordy, Demis Roussos, Didier Barbelivien, Pierre Vassiliu, JeaneManson, Alice Dona, Claude Dubois, Julie Piétri, Patrick Juvet, Claude Barzotti, Herbert Léonard, Pierre Bachelet, Gérard Lenorman, Michelle Torr, Guy Matteoni, Claude Salmiéri, Eric Charden, Patrick Bosso, Arnaud Gidouin, Jimmy Ohid, Robert Hossein, Tibert, Triste Sire, Annabel, Rhr, Tom Bad, Feed, Classic & Troubles, Raoul Volfonie, Sergio Verdi, Digital, Chery Chery, Freddy Kroegher, Shona, etc.
