SD9 : Overview

DiGiCo SD9: “It's off the hook.....”

The SD9 is a super-flexible, complete integrated system powered by Stealth Digital Processing and floating point Super FPGA technology. This lightweight, small-footprint console was designed with multiple applications in mind therefore is equally suited to life on the road or as part of any fixed installation, be it a theatre, conference centre, house of worship or school. The SD9 provides outstanding performance at a very competitive price point.

Scratching the surface

The SD9 features 24 touch-sensitive motorised faders and benefits from quick access function buttons for faster response times. At the heart of the console's worksurface is a 15-inch, high resolution TFT LCD touch screen with backlit display.
In addition, the SD9 benefits from dedicated multi-function control knobs and electronic labelling.

What's under the hood?

The SD9 boasts 96 Channels at 48kHz/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, four-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 from 155 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 155 Multiband Compressors and 155 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 16 gangable 32-band graphic EQs, 12 stereo effects (selectable from a palette of 33), and 12 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.

We've also included 48 busses, all of which are assignable as groups or auxiliary busses; and in addition to these busses, for further configurability, we've provided a 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

The SD9 has a vast Local I/O section including eight mic inputs, eight line outs, four mono AES/EBU, one MADI port, and two dedicated D-Rack Ports.

The D-Rack is a 32-input, eight-output remote I/O rack which comes as standard with the SD9 with the option to increase to 16 outputs if desired. Users can also connect a second D-Rack (as with the Rack Pack combination) which will provide a total of 72 mic inputs.

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. 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.

Looking for recent install and sound rental user stories featuring the DiGiCo SD9?

When looking for a digital console that was between - a very large format and a smaller console there are not as many choices as you would think. DiGiCo was the perfect solution. And they were extremely proactive in working with us to accommodate our needs for the TV market.

Bob Dixon , NBC Olympic Games

I have been using DiGiCo since 2010, maybe a little before, and I used a D5 in 2007. The audio quality is stellar!

Jim Roach - Monitor Engineer - Janet Jackson

I knew that I wanted to use a DiGiCo. I said right up front it was non-negotiable. I am a big fan of DiGiCo and I like the sound of the consoles.

James McCullagh - FOH Engineer

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

The main reason I use DiGiCo desks is that the sonic quality is the best in the business.

Hughie Boyle - Engineer - Daniel ODonnell

What I most like about DiGiCo is the sound quality and the flexibility of how you can customise the work surface. Yet, at the same time, you have the benefits of the DiGiTuBes and the analogue; style of the consoles layout and workflow.
