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

I tuned the PA system using just the SD5s Output EQ and Delay on the Matrix outs. In fact, using a DiGiCo UB MADI USB interface, the console also served as my test mic interface for Rational Acoustics Smaart 7.

Having the S21 adds a great brand name to our inventory. There are only a handful of pro audio brands that if you say they are going to be at either end of the multicore everyone is going to be happy.

Mark Bott - SWG Events

The DiGiCo SD8 being so compact and flexible is very easy to work with and we use it often for our large productions. You can set it up exactly the way you like and individualize all the channels very easily. And the sound was so beautiful in the Armory.

The DiGiCo platform helped us to achieve our goal with its straight forward UI, ease of use, sonic quality, and scalability of input racks

Micky Beck - Audio Engineer - Josh Groban

DiGiCo consoles have been used for a number of years now on both The X Factor and Britains Got Talent audition phases of the competition process. We are very proud that we were able to find a solution for Robert and that our products can be relied on time and again.
