SD7 : Overview

DiGiCo SD7: “With great power comes great responsibility...”

If it's everything that you're after, the SD7 is the console for you. Our flagship model offers mind-blowing I/O capabilities and sets new standards in high-density digital processing via our proprietary Stealth mixing and routing engine and game-changing, Super FPGA technology.

To put that into perspective, it delivers eight times the power of our industry standard D5 Live.

Scratching the surface

A combination of technologies have been seamlessly integrated into the SD7's worksurface to meet the everyday needs of any touring engineer. We've managed to pack them into three user-friendly interactive 15-inch high-resolution touch screens, each of which accommodates a bank of 12 faders,  to provide the user with the perfect platform – everything is just 'where it should be'.

To make navigation even easier, we've added high-definition interactive meter bridges and multicoloured knobs and switches; and for further functionality and flexibility, 16 assignable faders (one bank of 12, one bank of four) sit neatly below the master screen in the centre of the console, taking the SD7's fader tally to a sizeable 52.

To increase the fader count further for multi-engineer applications and shows, an EX-007 Fader Expansion unit is available. Two EX-007s can be connected via a simple Cat5e connector for remote control or simply to increase your fader count to 100.

What's under the hood?

If knowledge really is power, SD7 is our Einstein: it boasts a massive 256 processing paths at 48kHz/96kHz (or 128 at 192kHz).

Standard channel processing, whether inputs or outputs, includes Channel Delay, DiGiTube, Single and Multi Channel Presets, Dual insert points, Hi- and Lo-pass filters @ 24dB/octave, four-band parametric EQ (eight on outputs) with band curve selection and Dynamic EQ on each band, Dual insert points, DiGiCo's DYN 1 (Compressor, De-esser or Multi Channel Compressor) and DYN 2 (Gate, Compressor or Ducker).

The master section incorporates 32 gangable 32-band graphic EQs, 48 stereo effects, and 36 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 128 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 a 32 x 32 output matrix , dual solo busses, and a Master buss. Essentially, users have the equivalent of 160 busses of DSP at their disposal.

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.


The SD7's local I/O includes 12 analogue inputs, 12 analogue outputs and 12 AES I/O (mono); and when coupled with a second engine, with four redundant MADI ports per engine, and one Optocore loop with the ability for an option for a second to be fitted.

This amounts to a monumental 1392 I/O connections on a single optic loop with one worksurface.

In addition, there is an optional DiGiCo SoundGrid module which can be fitted to both engines for full redundancy when linked to two external PC servers such as SoundGrids or DiGiGrids. This 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.

"We invested in the SD7 because of its sound quality and dual engine redundancy. On huge events, like the Popes visit, you cannot allow anything to go wrong and so the dual engine redundant capability of the SD7 provides peace of mind."

Frederico Fred Coelho - MAC Audio

"Both consoles are in use almost continuously and, with DiGiCos unsurpassed reliability and support, they are a vital part of our inventory and have already proved the wisdom of our additional investment."

Andres Cuadros - Owner - Red Power

"With the amount of changes that went on, I could not have done the show without it. I like the D5, and I certainly would not use any other digital console."

Simon Higgs - Monitor Engineer for Sparks

"The DiGiCo system did everything we asked it to do."

Andy Robinson - George Michael

"When we arrived with the little Red Snapper [DiGiCos working title for the SD9], we got jealous looks from the other engineers and it was easy to find a suitable place in the crowded backstage area between four or five other consoles yet still get the ideal view to the stage. The console has been able to do everything we had expected, including having the MADI port which we can use for recording."

Bernd Kugler - Owner - B R Medientechnik

"The DiGiCo platform is so versatile you can layout any show they throw at you and it can handle it"

Mike Parker - Monitor Engineer
