Digico's FPGA technology that is built into the SD9 is getting a boost from a new release of free software and firmware upgrades. The upgrades are supposed to free up more of the FPGA's processing power. In some cases they are reporting up to 100% power on select features.This upgrade is free to call existings SD9 owners an...
DiGiCo has introduced the SD9, a complete, integrated system, which includes the mixing surface, a D-Rack digital stage interface and CAT 5E digital multicore, with the additional ability to simultaneously record 56 channels direct to multitrack software or DAW.
The SD9's work surface features a large full-color digital TFT LCD touch sensitive screen, 24 full-length motorized faders with touch-sensitive fader caps, High Resolution bar graph meters, quick access encoders and buttons plus user defined RGB backlit LCD scribble strips to ensure that all functions of the system are available to users in a split second, with no hunting through multiple menus.
It incorporates DiGiCo's third-generation Stealth Digital Processing software as well as Super FPGA technology that incorporates floating point processing for exceptional headroom, dynamic range and audio quality.
The SD9 also features many other DiGiCo innovations, including snapshots, global scope, channel specific recall scope per snapshot, and a global crossfade for each console section, plus eight user Macros for fast access to presets.
The new D-Rack, which is an integral part of the SD9 system and connected to the work surface by a digital CAT 5E Cable (included), provides 32 microphone inputs, eight line outputs and eight modular outputs that can be selected as either analog or AES, providing a capacity of 32 ins and 16 outs.
DiGiCo (UK) Limited brings together the design and development skills that have helped create some of the world's most popular, successful and ground-breaking live sound consoles, with the digital engineering expertise and manufacturing resources of Soundtracs. The company was formed in 2002 to develop the D5 Live digital mixing system, a revolutionary approach to both the live sound console and the way it interfaces with both ends of the audio chain. In basing a console around a powerful DSP engine using proven Soundtracs hardware and software, but with features dedicated to live sound mixing, DiGiCo created the world‚??s first truly open-ended console system, for which additional features will be made available in new software versions. This design philosophy ensures your investment in state of the art audio technology today will remain state of the art in the future. The D5 Live from DiGiCo: science dedicated to advancing the art of live sound engineering. Soundtracs was formed in the early 1980s by a group of recording engineers in search of a better studio console than those available at the time. The team‚??s success led to two decades of audio innovation and, in 1992, its first development of a digital audio mixing console. In 1996 this program led to the launch of the acclaimed Virtua console, followed a year later by the DPC, in 1998 the DS3 and in 2000 the D4. Since 2000 the company‚??s product range has been based entirely on digital audio. Along the way a host of new technologies has been introduced, including the first use by a console manufacturer of the revolutionary Sharc DSP from Analog Devices, a faster, more efficient processor than any then on the market, the first (and still the most comprehensive) use of multiple TFT LCD touchscreens, a pioneer in the use of a 96kHz sample rate, and the first to run multiple sample rates simultaneously. This is just some of the experience that has gone into creating the D1 Live digital mixing system, the latest innovation from one of the pioneers of professional digital audio.
Audio mixers, or sound consoles, are electronic sound mixing boards used to combine two or more audio signals, before directing them to the output channels connected to the device. Sound consoles do a great deal more than just combining different audio signals they allow users to optimize the sound output in a number of ways adjusting various sound levels, enhancing sound with special effects and equalization etc, allowing for unmatched control over the end product.
