The future is here, and how. A compact, world-class digital mixing system at an exceptional price. Forget the limitations of conventional digital or analogue mixing. The new DiGiCo SD9 is a class apart and a whole generation ahead.
At its heart is the same Stealth Digital Processing and unique Super FPGA technology that add up to the finest sonic quality yet heard in a digital mixing console. This is what powers the legendary, top of-the-line DiGiCo SD7 and is the sound of the console chosen for U2's 360° Tour, The Killers' Get Six of the Best, Aerosmith Toys in the Attic, Massive Attack, Madonna's Sticky & Sweet tour and Kylie's European Arena tour, events such as the Montreux Jazz Festival, television shows such as The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent and major theatrical productions such as Billy Elliot, Lion King and Love Never Dies.
Now, with the SD9, you can mix with that same, high-end audio quality in a smaller package and at a lower cost. Add in the elegant, moving fader work surface and giant full colour TFT LCD touch screen and the SD9 will bring back the joy of live mixing in real time - whatever your budget. What's more, the accompanying D-Rack means the SD9 is a complete, integrated system including mixing work surface, digital stage interface and CAT5E digital multicore. You can simultaneously record 56 channels direct to your favourite multitrack software or DAW, bring those tracks back in to remix or rehearse, and recall everything on the night via the SD9's powerful Snapshot facilities. The DiGiCo SD9. Join the revolution.
Stealth Digital Processing (Super FPGA) technology
Gives unparalleled sonic quality, performance and reliability. Future proofed technology, proven in the award winning SD7 and SD8 on some of the world's largest concert tours, musical theatre productions and prestigious installations. Now, the SD9 gives the same stunning sonic performance at an incredible price point.
All new D-Rack (remote mic Pre amps and outputs)
A new floor or rack mount stage box from DiGiCo, with 32 inputs and up to 16 outputs all on one CAT5E cable. And that's only the half of it: double your capacity by connecting two D-Racks to one console.
DiGiCo's signature Large TFT Touch Screen
Previously only a dream in this class of console, the SD9's Large TFT Touch Screen allows instant access to key functions, alleviating the need for tedious layer and menu driven access.
Flexi channels provide an amazing level of flexibility and processing punch. In mono mode, each channel has a 'Main' and 'Alt' input, providing two instantly switchable paths per channel. This is ideal for all applications where spare inputs are essential and alleviates the frustration of consuming worksurface controls and channels. It also means that when you switch to the 'Alt' or spare, all channel processing settings are already in place for a smooth change over.
Incredible processing power for channels and busses
As with the exceptionally successful SD8, all channels have full processing all the time and can all be mono or stereo. The same is true for the 16 busses and the two solo busses, true LCR Master and an additional 8 matrix busses.
Extra MADI I/O port
Allows a simple connection for record and playback of 56 channels to any DAW, and connection to any existing DiGiCo stage rack or console system, or even provides a broadcast feed.
