SD11i : Overview

DiGiCo SD11i: “Even bigger things come in small packages.....”

Think the SD11, but with a bit more of everything. Though aesthetically identical, the SD11i packs more of a punch in pretty much every department: and we've crammed more processing power into the same 19-inch rack mount / table top shell, which makes the SD11i an even more powerful solution. Easily transportable and simple to incorporate into any mixing environment, this supercharged model delivers a very high performance at a fantastic price point.

Scratching the surface

Like the SD11, the SD11i is manufactured with the same steel chassis and 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 SD11i boasts 80 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, six-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 from115 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 115 Multiband Compressors and 115 DiGiTubes; 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, 8 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 12 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 SD11i'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

Looking for recent install and sound rental user stories featuring the DiGiCo SD11i?

I just like the way they sound. And over the years, I have mixed on quite a few. This and its small footprint was the fundamental reason I asked for the console but I am also big fan of the multi-band compression

James McCullagh - FOH Engineer - Neal Schon

There are many reasons why we have gone down the SD5 route. It is on every international rider, which was the main selling point, but for our shows, it was the shear ability of the console - all the things it can do, the enormous I/O count and its exceptional audio quality.

Marinus Visser - Head of Audio - Blue Array

In my opinion, DiGiCo consoles whether it is the SD7 or any of the new ones like the SD8, SD9, SD10 are the best-sounding digital consoles currently available

Jim Ebdon - FOH Engineer - Maroon 5

It is no surprise that the system sounded fantastic and every engineer was delighted with the configuration provided.

Anthony Touma - GT

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

We were immediately struck by the SD7, an innovative, reliable product and really valid work tool
