"Comments made by sound engineers who used the desks on the tours include - Good preamps - Lots of headroom - Wider stereo perspective and & Easy to use. I personally love the service you receive from DiGiCo. It is very good. There is always someone on the other end of a phone line to help."

"Once I got the full orchestra in for the initial soundcheck, I had the console up and running in 15 minutes. We then threw in the cast for a complete run-through and I had the console pretty much dialed in after the second group song - with a couple tweaks here and there to compensate for the actors who put on hats during the course of the show. Having a digital desk for this kind of thing was invaluable. I was able to store EQs for those actors in those scenes, so when the lead character puts on a hat, you can have that EQ stored on that channel to compensate. The versatility of being able to program your EQs and dynamics, scene to scene, was amazing."
"When we arrived with the little Red Snapper [DiGiCos working title for the SD9], we got jealous looks from the other engineers and it was easy to find a suitable place in the crowded backstage area between four or five other consoles yet still get the ideal view to the stage. The console has been able to do everything we had expected, including having the MADI port which we can use for recording."
"I knew that DiGiCo made extremely intuitive and simply great-sounding consoles, and with the SD8s massive onboard digital processing and control available in an easy-to-operate package was the deciding factor for me. The onboard package is phenomenal, and I get everything I want and more."
"The budget dictated that we had to use a smaller console and the SD8 had all the features and power that I was used to in the SD7. It was pretty much a no-brainer that that is what we were going to need on this tour. I had first mixed on one at the NAB convention this April and had a cool experience on it. Plus, the audio quality was excellent."
