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

"By running at 96kHz and eliminating intermediate analogue conversion, people commented that it sounded like a blanket had been taken off the PA"

Dieter Van Denzel - Ampco Flashlight

"The layout of the DiGiCo consoles makes sense to me. I am not sure why other manufacturers miss this point so obviously. When it comes to reliability, audio quality, innovation and support, DiGiCo has always delivered."

Bradley Johnson - Sound Engineer - Megadeth

"The SD7 is my favourite console for a variety of reasons. I think it is the most versatile, it has the most convenient mixing surface, has enough inputs and outputs and the metering is fantastic. It has all the tools I need."

Holger Schwark - FOH Engineer - The Matrix Live

"I have enjoyed using DiGiCo products because they have great preamps/ converters with plenty of headroom. The routing and layout of the consoles hardware and software has the most analog feel of any digital console out there."

Chad Singer PM/FOH engineer

"It is a lovely soft sounding desk and it responds beautifully. With many other digital consoles I have used, you would have perhaps one channel you could work on at a time. But with the SD7 you can see 24 at a time. To need any more than that in front of you, you would have to be an octopus. It is more than enough to give you the feel of an analogue console. I am absolutely in love with it."

Sean Horsman - Monitor Engineer - X Factor Live Tour

"The SD8 has a nice sound and is very easy to use"

Andre Trebbli - FOH Engineer - Palmy
