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.

Looking for recent install and sound rental user stories featuring the DiGiCo SD11?

Previously I have used other digital consoles, but they were not going to be big enough for this job. I also wanted to try a new product, so I chose the SD8 because of its expandability and its physically small size, as it needed to fit into front of house positions in a wide range of venue sizes - from Bath Theatre Royal at one extreme to the Liverpool Empire at the other.

I would say the SD7T is by far the best digital desk for theatre I have ever used.

James Meadwell - FOH Engineer - Batman Live

I found this to be a viable system for many if not most of the bands that I would be working with down the road. The trial proved most enlightening and will no doubt impact the day-to-day workflow for me from now on. And needless to say as a longtime DiGiCo user, I am so pleased to be able to have an all-in-one that is DiGiCo top to bottom and that I can flex for whatever band has got me on its payroll.

Jon Lemon - FOH Engineer - The Frey

I would recommend this board to just about everybody. It has produced some of the best sounding work I have done. I get pretty upset that sometimes monitors is regarded as an afterthought, but DiGiCo have really thought about the monitor engineer with the SD7 and I think that has been long overdue. I cannot say enough great things about both the board and the support we get from the guys at DiGiCo have been great; it is a real anytime anywhere sort of outfit! DiGiCo really has something here. I am really enjoying using the SD7 and I look forward to continuing to use it!

Kevin Glendinning - Monitors - Lenny Kravitz

It is definitely one of the warmest digital formats I have used, and from what I hear from Ed, our artist really loves it as well!

Ed Janiszewski - Monitor Engineer - Luke Bryan

All in all, this seems to be about as foolproof and easy to use a system as you can get.
