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 32 processing channels (eight of which are Flexi channels, configurable as either mono or stereo) at 48kHz, which is the equivalent of 40 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 four 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 four assignable 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, four 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 12 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 an 8 x 8 output matrix, dual solo busses, and a Master buss. Essentially, users have the equivalent of 39 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

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 16 fully integrated low-latency Waves stereo Multi Racks, each with the ability to have up to eight plugins per rack.  That's 64 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.

Testimonials

"Since we invested in DiGiCo D5s in 2004, they have been consistently in demand and very reliable. The low cost of ownership, coupled with these factors, has made the consoles produce a great return on what we initially perceived as a high investment cost."

John Penn - MD - SSE Audio Group

"I have been following DiGiCo since they appeared on the scene and have been waiting for a product in the price/feature strata that would work for us. Up until now, the DiGiCo line has been aimed at only the cream of the tour industry. The SD8 breaks a price and feature barrier that addresses the bell curve of acts today, which is our main focus."

Tim Swan - Vice President - Gand Concert Sound

"It is refreshing to me that the company is so in tune with the industry and the engineers needs. When we saw the SD7 and SD8 with the FPGA design, it was clear that for once we had a platform that would exceed our requirements at the Festival."

Patrick Vogelsang - Montreux Jazz Festival

"But the instant recall, communications options and sheer flexibility of the D5 Live allowed Syd van Gastel to design a system which easily coped with such complex logistics. It’s an event which helps to raise the bar yet further, allowing the D5 Live to again prove that it can rise to - and go beyond - the technical challenges that such complicated shows present."

Ronald Koster and Jeroen Ebskamp - De Vrienden van Amstel Live

"It was the DiGiCo console that made the difference and so this year he invited us to provide the entire system and staff, including two SD7s. Of course it sounded awesome!"

Philippe Barguirdjan - Arpege

"Their staffers are accustomed to top quality sounds and were surprised with the quality of the sound from a digital board - they thought I was working in analogue. It has a fantastic bottom end really full-bodied DiGiGo desks have always struck me for this feature that is where the difference can be heard."

Hugo Tempesta - FOH Engineer - Fiorello
