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?

We selected the SD8 for its sonic quality and straightforward approach to mixing monitors. We also thought since the primary audio vendor Syntonic was using a DiGiCo, it would be cool for us to bring in one as well.

Thomas "Randy" Frierson - Concert Systems Production Group

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.

Fernando Fortes - Sound Designer - Brazilian Baby

The D5 is one of those conceive it and it can be done digital desks. Its flexibility is truly amazing and it is also quite easy to use. The intuitive layout has even made a fan of our support acts engineer, who was previously not into digital desks at all.

Adam Robinson - FOH Engineer - They Might Be Giants

Their staffers are accustomed to top quality sounds and were surprised with the quality of the sound from a digital board - they thought I was working in analogue. It has a fantastic bottom end really full-bodied DiGiGo desks have always struck me for this feature that is where the difference can be heard.

Hugo Tempesta - FOH Engineer - Fiorello

And as they (D5 Live) are so flexible, I am sure they will also quickly become the console of choice to drive any of our large corporate audio events.

Jim Yakabuski - Avril Lavigne

To be honest I was amazed that there is now a DiGiCo console at a price that means we can use such a technically advanced desk in these kind of venues.
