DiGiCo marks multiple anniversaries with software and firmware upgrades

Published:

2012 marks three major milestones in DiGiCo’s history: the anniversary of 40 years since the birth of Soundtracs, the company from which DiGiCo was born; 20 years since it made its first foray into digital consoles; and 10 years since DiGiCo took over the Soundtracs reins.
To celebrate the occasion, DiGiCo has developed a series of software and firmware upgrades for its SD series of consoles. These upgrades contain a wealth of features that, according to the manufacturer, ‘in many cases, will expand the console’s capabilities by over 100 per cent’.

SD11’s software/firmware upgrades converts it to the SD11i with more flexi-channels, more dynamic EQ, for FX processing and the addition of DiGiTubes and multichannel inputs (previously only available on the SD7).

The SD9 Supercharged software and firmware upgrades supply a significant expansion in channel count, dynamic EQs, multiband compressors and matrix with the addition of DiGiTuBes, reorder of busses and multichannel inputs (formerly only available on SD7).

Overdrive 2 for the SD8, meanwhile, provides the entry-level console with up to 60 stereo inputs (equivalent to 120 flexi channels of DSP), 24 flexi busses (stereo or mono) plus two solo busses and master, four band parametric EQ (with dynamic EQ on up to eight channels), hi/lo pass filters and dynamics on all inputs and outputs, 24 graphic EQs, eight stereo effects, and a 16 x 12 matrix. And, when fitted with the optical option, the SD8 can have up to four racks connected to it, providing up to 240 I/O.

The Nitrous upgrade increases the power to DiGiCo’s SD10 console. Sitting between the flagship SD7 and the SD8, SD10 has 96 input channels – 12 of which are Flexi Channels – and 48 configurable Busses. Nitrous turns up the power with a significant expansion in the amount of dynamic EQ, multiband compressors and FX, plus the matrix increasing from a 16 x 12 to 16 x 16 and the addition of DiGiTuBes, reorder of busses and multichannel inputs.

Finally, Mach3 for the flagship SD7 incorporates all the new features found in the upgraded SD range, plus some added extras that are exclusive to the SD7.
