DiGiCo SD8 brings you the complete DiGiCo digital mixing experience, from the ultimate in intuitive user interfaces to the power and purity of Stealth Digital Processing, at a price point more commonly associated with midrange mixing consoles.

Whether you're moving up from an analogue console or adding more flexibility to your existing systems, the SD8 offers all the major features and versatility of the acclaimed DiGiCo D Series. It's also the world's first 'affordable' console to provide the smoothness, accuracy and dynamic range of the latest generation Super FPGA technology with floating point processing, the heart of the groundbreaking DiGiCo SD7.

 

In its compact frame, the most affordable DiGiCo console ever built provides a powerful array of live sound engineering tools, laid out with the clarity you'd expect from a worksurface designed by the award-winning team at DiGiCo. It offers an extensive specification in a complete digital package. It has a stage MaDiRack with 48 microphone inputs as standard, 8 analogue outputs and dual MADI connections - making rehearsal and live show recording simple and inexpensive - a digital MADI multicore, a full worksurface and 8-line outputs which can be reconfigured to create up to 24 for monitoring.

Two discrete master busses, 24 mono or stereo busses and a 12 x 12 matrix complete the channel and bussing structure. But that's not all, since the versatile SD8 also provides dual solo busses for greatly increased flexibility as a monitor console. The DiGiCo SD8. A new world of performance and versatility in a midrange console.

 

Built for the road

Every inch an engineer's console, the SD8 is designed for the rough and tumble of the road, the pressure of corporate events and festivals, the rehearsals and nightly changes of operator in the theatre world as well as the unique challenges of providing excellent, repeatable audio for houses of worship. Powerful as it is on the inside, the SD8 is ready for everything the road can throw at it too. A sturdy steel chassis provides excellent rigidity, while the laminated worksurface is highly resistant to wear and tear. Every aspect of the worksurface and the MaDiRack exudes DiGiCo quality, from the perfectly weighted encoder wheels and faders to the durable silk screening and solid construction. A dual, hot-swappable, integrated switch-mode power supply provides peace of mind.

DiGiCo SD9 Training 11:28

SD9 : Overview DiGiCo SD9: “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. I/O The SD9 has a vast Local I/O section including eight mic inputs, eight line outs, four mono AES/EBU, one MADI port, and two dedicated D-Rack Ports. The D-Rack is a 32-input, eight-output remote I/O rack which comes as standard with the SD9 with the option to increase to 16 outputs if desired. Users can also connect a second D-Rack (as with the Rack Pack combination) which will provide a total of 72 mic inputs. There is also a factory fit Optocore option which allows for connectivity to all DiGiCo racks and consoles in a redundant loop. 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.

Options The following options are available: D-Rack UB-MADI Waves SoundGrid Module Little Red Box Little Blue Box SD-Rack (with solutions box or Optics) SD-MINI Rack (with solutions box or Optics) SD-NANO Rack (with optics only)
