Live Digital Console with Stealth Digital Processing
“It's off the hook.....”
The SD9 is a super-flexible, complete integrated system powered by Stealth Digital Processing and floating point Super FPGA technology.
This lightweight, small-footprint console was designed with multiple applications in mind therefore is equally suited to life on the road or as part of any fixed installation, be it a theatre, conference centre, house of worship or school. The SD9 provides outstanding performance at a very competitive price point.
Scratching the surface
The SD9 features 24 touch-sensitive motorised faders and benefits from quick access function buttons for faster response times. At the heart of the console's worksurface is a 15-inch, high resolution TFT LCD touch screen with backlit display.In addition, the SD9 benefits from dedicated multi-function control knobs and electronic labelling.
What's under the hood?
The SD9 boasts 48 Flexi Channels (configurable as either mono or stereo) at 48kHz/96kHz, which is the equivalent of 96 channels of full DSP processing.
Standard channel processing, whether inputs or outputs, includes Channel Delay, Single and Multi Channel Presets, Dual insert points, Hi- and Lo-pass filters 24dB/octave, four-band parametric EQ with band curve selection, Dual insert points, DiGiCo's DYN 1 (Compressor, De-esser or assignable Multi Channel Compressor) and DYN 2 (Gate, Compressor or Ducker).
The console also benefits from eight Dynamic EQ processors, all of which can be assigned to any of the input or output channels. These powerful processors offer Dynamic processing on each of the four standard parametric bands, plus there are also eight assignable Multiband Compressors and eight DiGiTubes; and no matter how the console is set up, the user won't lose any resources, as all channels are equipped to provide the same high quality signal path and feature set.
The master section incorporates 16 gangable 32-band graphic EQs, eight stereo effects (selectable from a palette of 33), and eight control groups (VCAs) and using snapshots, engineers can now switch between complete configurations in any live environment easier than ever before, be it at rehearsals, during system setup, or even at a show.
We've also included 24 Flexi busses (mono or stereo), all of which are assignable as mono/stereo groups or auxiliary busses and in addition to these busses, for further configurability, we've provided a 12 x 8 output matrix, dual solo busses, and a Master buss. Essentially, users have the equivalent of 47 busses of DSP at their disposal.
Unlike all other digital console manufacturers, you don't lose Aux or Group Busses when using the Matrix as they are in addition, including the Master buss.
The SD7's local I/O includes 12 analogue inputs, 12 analogue outputs and 12 AES I/O (mono) and when coupled with a second engine, with four redundant MADI ports per engine, and one Optocore loop with the ability for an option for a second to be fitted.This amounts to a monumental 1392 I/O connections on a single optic loop with one worksurface.
In addition, there is an optional DiGiCo SoundGrid module which can be fitted to both engines for full redundancy when linked to two external PC servers such as SoundGrids or DiGiGrids. This provides the user with instant access to 32 fully integrated low-latency Waves stereo Multi Racks, each with the ability to have up to eight plugins per rack. That's 128 I/O - and as you'd expect from DiGiCo, this is all additional I/O.
All Waves compatible plugins are pre-loaded, and as this is integral within the console, you have the added advantage of touch screen control and all shapshots and session files are saved within the console.
