DiGiCo’s new SD9 digital mixing system includes its work surface — comparably compact in comparison to its bigger brothers, the SD7 and SD8 — 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 work surface features a color, 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.
The new D-Rack, which is connected to the work surface by a digital Cat-5E cable, features 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.
The console has a standard MADI connection, which allows 56 channels of multitrack recording output to a computer running Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Samplitude, Reaper, Pro Tools, etc. as well as to any other DiGiCo console or rack.
