SD10 : Overview

DiGiCo SD10: “Powers of Ten explained...”

The SD Ten includes many of our flagship SD7's features and benefits, including Stealth Digital Processing and floating-point Super FPGA technology, and provides a fully-loaded feature set that will cater to any front-of-house or monitor engineer's needs.

Scratching the surface

SD Ten features three banks of 12 motorised faders and one master fader, each of which benefits from its own high resolution LED bar graph meter. In the centre of the worksurface sits the familiar 15-inch backlit colour-keyed TFT touch screen, home of the console's super-intuitive control interface.

The sheer intelligence of the SD Ten means even the most complex of tasks become quick and easy: engineers can recall or save presets on the channel strip; and recall or save snapshots using the master screen or hard wired switches on the console. In addition, special functions can be assigned and accessed instantly via the console's 40 Smart Key Macros (accessible via four layers of 10 RGB backlit keys) at the push of a button. It really is that simple.

What's under the hood?

The SD Ten boasts 132 processing channels at 48kHz/96kHz, 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, DiGiCo's DYN 1 (Compressor, De-esser or Multi Channel Compressor) and DYN 2 (Gate, Compressor or Ducker).
The console also benefits from 218 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 218 Multiband Compressors and 218 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 24 gangable 32-band graphic EQs, 24 stereo effects (selectable from a palette of 33), and 24 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 included 56 busses, which can be configured as groups or auxiliary busses; and in addition to these busses, for further configurability, we've provided a 24 x 24 output matrix, dual solo busses, and a Master buss. 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

At the rear of the SD Ten, there is an abundance of local I/O: eight mic inputs, eight line inputs, eight mono AES I/O, two MADI connections with redundant cabling connections; and 16 GPI and GPO connections.

The SD Ten also works seamlessly with the DiGiCo SD-Rack, which delivers up to 192kHz high resolution analogue conversion. This opens the door to a wealth of interfacing options and provides the user with even further flexibility: when used with the Optocore interface, up to 14 SD-Racks and five redundant engined consoles can connect to one optical loop, which means a massive 1152 I/O connections are achievable (56 inputs and 56 outputs per SD-Rack).

In short, you could mix the Philharmonic on this – comfortably.

In addition, there is an optional DiGiCo SoundGrid module which, when linked to an external PC server such as SoundGrid or DiGiGrid, 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.Click here for more info.

Autograph has bought one of the first SD7s because we are completely committed to continuing the work that we started when we adopted the D5 in 2002.

Andrew Bruce - Autograph

The SD7 gave me all the tools I needed for the show. And it just keeps getting better. For instance, Stealth Core 2 has taken the SD7 to the next level—it is now quicker and more powerful with a newer user interface and dynamics and effects section. I was able to get virtually all of the processing I needed dynamics, EQ, reverbs, delays right on the console itself, with some additional help from the Waves plug-ins. Everything I needed was right at my fingertips.

Andy Meyer - FOH Engineer - The Revolution

Having main and backup consoles mirroring one another, whilst not necessarily attached to the same I/O or network, is a unique scenario to these events, and one that DiGiCo consoles helps us achieve more elegantly, and the ability to send feeds to other consoles on the network is a huge advantage.

Andrew Marsh

We decided we could only do it using DiGiCo consoles because DiGiCo’s architecture is very straightforward, even for those who don’t already know the products

its digital technology allowing settings to be recalled exactly as set during rehearsals, with the user-friendly interface enabling the mix to be fine-tuned live – the digital domain with a human touch!

The D5 is excellent all-round. It takes 15 minutes to set it up and another 15 to take it down.
