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.

I really enjoyed using the SD7 and was very impressed at how easy it was to get a show together quickly.

Anthony Jeffries - FOH Engineer - Chaka Khan

We felt that we needed to have the versatility of a digital mixing console and DiGiCo was our entry to the digital mixer world. AV Concepts Director of Sales, Staging. Its sonic quality compares to the best in analog mixers and effects. After extensive research and questioning of freelance audio engineers we hire, it was apparent that DiGiCo was the best of its class.

Mitch Teitelbaum - AV Concepts

The support from DiGiCo was very good - David Webster and Rob Andrews spent an afternoon and the better part of an evening with Didos FOH engineer and I, going through the ins and outs of the console and making sure we felt comfortable enough with it that we were happy to use it when the band came in the following morning.

Britannia Row Productions

DiGiCo’s technical support has been second to none!

Phil Wright - BBC Proms

Why the SD7s? - Because they rock! They have got so many inputs and outputs, they are very versatile and I feel they are the best, most user friendly desk out there they are designed by engineers, not geeky designers. I love them

Wayne Rabbit Sargeant - Monitor Engineer - Kasabian

My reaction was Wow, this is a really great console!’ The sound is amazing and mixing with it feels just like using an analogue desk.
