SD11 : Overview

DiGiCo SD11: “Big things come in small packages.....”

The SD11 is the smallest by far of all the DiGiCo consoles, though don't let that deceive you: this 19-inch rack mount or table top mixer is a very powerful solution that can be incorporated into pretty much any mixing environment; like its bigger brothers, the SD11 is also powered by Stealth Digital Processing and floating point Super FPGA technology, and transporting it couldn't be easier – just pop it on the back seat of the car. This easy-to-use mixer delivers extremely high performance at a staggeringly competitive price point.    

Scratching the surface

The SD11 is manufactured with a steel chassis and a polycarbonate-overlaid aluminium worksurface which makes it super-lightweight. Its user interface comes courtesy of DiGiCo's trademark 15-inch, high resolution TFT LCD touch screen with backlit display; and its 12 touch sensitive moving faders guarantee a simple and intuitive workflow.

What's under the hood?

The SD11 boasts 48 input channels at 48kHz or 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, Dual insert points, DiGiCo's DYN 1 (Compressor, De-esser or Multi Channel Compressor) and DYN 2 (Gate, Compressor or Ducker).
The console also benefits from 83 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 83 Multiband Compressors; 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 12 gangable 32-band graphic EQs, 6 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.
In addition, we've included 24 busses, all of which are assignable as mono/stereo groups or auxiliary busses; and in addition to these busses, for further configurability, we've provided an 8 x 8 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

For a little console, the SD11's I/O section is monumental: Local I/O includes 16 mic/line inputs, eight line outs, two mono AES/EBU, one MADI port, and one dedicated D-Rack port.
The D-Rack is an optional 32-input, eight-output remote I/O rack which can be increased to accommodate 16 outputs if desired.
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, 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.

Andres Cuadros - Owner - Red Power

<p>Engineers and sound designers specifically ask for DiGiCo products because they are very happy with the sound quality, the products user friendly and intuitive interface and their wide range of feature sets.</p>

Floris van den Berg - Owner - Flowsound

Agora has a long association with DiGiCo. It was one of the first companies to invest in the D5 and has an impressive stock of both digital and analogue desks. Agora already had the edge in the Italian market and the purchase of the SD7s has reinforced that.

Stefano Cantadori - President Audio Link Srl

The SD7 is the only digital desk which can easily handle 96+ inputs and still be pleasant to mix on and were also very happy with the new Overdrive software option on the SD8 at FOH. The Dynamic EQs and multiband dynamics are very useful, combined with the eight floating point FX that were previously only found in the SD7.

Jaap Pronk - TM Audio

We are doing DJs and some bands here, so there is a lot of electronic music, some hip hop and a bit of rock n roll. This is the first time I have used and SD8. I am falling in love with this machine. It sounds really good.
