SD12 : Overview

Introducing Project Vulcan...

In 2015, DiGiCo launched its compact S-Series, which boasted a modern workflow at an affordable pricepoint; last year, the whole SD Range became much more powerful thanks to the introduction of Core 2 Software across the board; now, in DiGiCo’s 15th year, meet Project Vulcan, the new SD12.

The SD12 is set to raise the bar in terms of what users will now expect from a compact, affordable, multi- application digital console. Not only is SD12 a true sonic powerhouse, it also benefits from dual 15-inch touch screens, never before seen on a console in this price bracket, and is the first in the SD Range with built-in recording interfaces; which makes Virtual Soundchecking very straightforward indeed.

Furthermore, the SD12 now includes a DVI output, for an overview of the console. New LED meters allow for a brighter, faster operation, and the SD12 Lightbar is identical to that of the SD5 and flagship SD7 consoles. And guess what? We even had space for two assignable master faders - only previously seen on the larger DiGiCo consoles - as well as dual DMI Slots, perfect for expandability.

Ripping up the rulebook

Looking for recent install and sound rental user stories featuring the DiGiCo SD12?

Navratri Mahotsav provided the biggest audience at any one venue where we have used the D5. 250,000 people dancing to the music is no mean achievement, but the D5s clarity, sonic purity and reproduction of the quality of the natural textures of the male and female vocalists were extraordinary.

I literally could not do this on anything other than an SD7. The DiGiCo platform is a huge part of pulling off this tour.

Alex MacLeod - Monitor Engineer - Justin Bieber

There is a lot going on with The Killers. People think of them as a straightforward rock band, but there are something like 90 inputs. There are two or three different guitar amps for each of the guys, so James takes separate inputs for pretty well everything. Both the SD7 and D5 at each show ran with two fully loaded stage racks.

Paul Timmins - Capital Sound

Since we invested in DiGiCo D5s in 2004, they have been consistently in demand and very reliable. The low cost of ownership, coupled with these factors, has made the consoles produce a great return on what we initially perceived as a high investment cost.

John Penn - MD - SSE Audio Group

The choice was pretty easy to make, because we like so many things about the SD8. One of the main benefits is that we can use it for so many different types of event. Not long ago we did an open air concert with the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, which got great reviews, and the SKAB party was another complete success - both the guests and organisers were absolutely thrilled.

Tobias Larsson - Hire Sound

It is simply a mind blowing console. The sound quality is excellent, it is simple to hook up, has superb headroom, smart features..... it was a totally new way for us to work, but at the same time it has a real analogue feel, which is unlike any other digital board.
