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

"The SD7 was the linchpin for everything and was an essential component for PURs system. Dirk and I used two stage racks with 56 inputs each, with all relevant inputs for the band patched on the first stage rack. We recorded every show with Concert Online, which was the reason I sent a MADI stream of all the important stage signals and all dry and effect sum signals from my SD7 to an outside broadcast vehicle. The live recording that was made was immediately available for sale to PURs fans on a USB stick at the end of the show. "

Patrick Eckerlin - FOH Engineer - PUR

"The floating point processing puts the SD8 leaps and bounds above other digital boards I have used before."

Keith Farmer - STS Touring

"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 complexities of a show such as Beauty and the Beast demand a console that provides outstanding audio quality and intuitive operation, and the D5T gives all of that and more. Additionally, the amount of space available at front of house can be kept to a minimum because of the small footprint, which is always a big plus factor for these productions because they can sell more seats."

TM Audio - Beauty And The Beast, Amsterdam

"I have had a great time with the D5 on monitors for Anastacia.It sounds warm and natural, and the fact that it is so intuitive to get around means that I can keep my eyes on Anastacia and the band, and not have to look down too much. There is quite a big dynamic range between her songs, from gentle piano-based ballads to full-on rock, and so the thing that really stood out for me was the snapshots - they are so versatile and user-friendly, I could not have done it without them. It is a fantastic desk, and I really enjoy using it!"

Becky Pell - Monitors - Anastacia

"The SD8 has a great spec for its size and price and, despite filling the board with ins and outs, I never feel lost in its layout."

Dan Ungaretti - Monitor Engineer - Jamiroquai
