Ripping up the Rulebook

New from DiGiCo - 2017

DiGiCo SD12. 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.

In Detail


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.

DiGiCo brought its DMI (Digital Multichannel Interface) into the pro-audio world via its Orange Box, then into the S-Series, and now it makes its way into the SD Range for the first time via the SD12. Not only is MADI built into this console, as well as all the local I/O you’d expect from a DiGiCo, there are also two slots for DMIs - that's a whopping 64 channels of I/O per slot.


This card can be used to connect a Standard MADI stream (64 channels in and out) at 48KHz or 96KHz or an SD Series DiGiCo Rack with the appropriate connector (D-Rack, D2-Rack, SD-Rack, SD-MiNiRack)


This card provides 64 input and 64 output channels at 48KHz and 32 input and 32 output channels at 96KHz. It is provided with Primary and Secondary (backup) Gigabit Ethernet ports for connection to the Dante network.


This card will provide 56 Input and 56 output channels at 48kHz with Primary and Secondary (backup) optical connections.


This card will provide 64 input and 64 output channels at 48kHz or 96kHz to the SoundGrid™ Network with 2 CAT5E connections.


This card provides 16 output channels at 48kHz (with SRC) and Supports Aviom's proprietary A-Net Pro16 protocol. It has 1 CAT5E connection and faceplate DIP switched for Stereo output selection.


This card can be used to connect a Standard MADI stream (64 channels in and out) at 48KHz or 96KHz or an SD Series DiGiCo Rack with the appropriate connector (D-Rack, D2-Rack, SD-Rack, SD-MiNiRack)


This card provides 16 analogue inputs on 2 x 25 way “D” connectors. The ADC card is a line card only. There is no microphone amplifier or phantom power available. There is no gain control function for these inputs (only digital trim). Maximum input level +22dBu


This card provides 16 analogue outputs on 2 x 25 way “D” connectors DAC card is line level only. Maximum output level +22dBu (Digital Full Scale)


This card provides 16 Inputs (8 pairs) and 16 outputs (8 pairs) on 2 x 25 way “D” connectors. All AES inputs are provided with sample rate conversion (SRC) by default. All AES outputs are synchronised to the mixer system clock.
