Digico SD11

Now you can raise your expectations of what can be achieved within the familiar format of a compact 19" rackmount or table top mixer. With the SD11, the whole world of DiGiCo technologies is at your fingertips, redefining the performance of a digital mixer in this form factor.

The SD11 is two consoles in one - a rackmountable mixer ready to fit into your installation or a touring rack, and a table top mixer with smart end cheeks and arm rest, an easy one-person lift from truck to table top, ready for action.

Features

  • Equally at home as a desktop console or mounted in a 19-inch rack
  • True FPGA-based digital audio specification
  • 16 Microphone pre amps, eight line outputs and two mono AES I/O
  • Optional connection to D-Rack via CAT5E port for remote I/O solution with an additional 32 Microphone inputs and up to 16 outputs.
  • MADI port, GPI/O, MIDI, Overview screen output, Word Clock I/O, Ethernet port for console remote control / networking plus USB port for file exchange and session backup.
  • 32 input channels with full processing, 8 of which can be configured as full Flexi Channels
  • 12 Flexi Busses, which can be user configured as either mono or stereo. (e.g. configured as 12 stereo mixes is equal to 24 busses)
  • Additional stereo or LCR Master buss and 8x8 output matrix  
  • Unlimited Snapshots can be saved and recalled
  • Insertable Stealth stereo FX and 12 graphic EQs

The giant 15" full colour TFT LCD touch sensitive screen means you can forget complex menu-driven interfaces, because nothing is ever further than a touch away. Effects, dynamics and equalisation can be summoned up for each channel in a split second, with no hunting through multiple menus.

A physical fader, knob or backlit, electronically labelled button is either provided as standard for every major mix function, or can be programmed onto one of the user macro buttons. Your mix is created on a bank of 12 full-length motorised faders with accompanying high resolution bar graph meters. The highly accurate, durable and user-assignable channel faders have touch-sensitive fader caps to put even more intuitive controllability right where you need it.

The SD11 features the same A/D and D/A converters as every member of the SD Series, along with identical Stealth Digital Processing, now in its third generation, with Super FPGA technology incorporating floating point processing, for superior headroom, dynamic range and overall audio quality. The result is true high end performance despite the SD11’s small size: the same smooth, accurate and yet thoroughly musical sonic performance familiar to users of the SD7, SD8, SD9 and SD10.

It means that you can easily partner a larger SD Series console, at front of house, for example, with the SD11 providing identical sonic quality and main features for monitoring, recording to an external device via MADI or both. But of course the SD11, like all DiGiCo consoles, is much more than a console - it's designed to form an integral part of a complete digital mixing system.

In partnership with the DiGiCo D Rack, the SD11 becomes an integrated system including mixing work surface, digital stage interface and CAT5E digital multicore, with the ability to simultaneously record 56 channels direct to your favourite multitrack software or DAW.

However, there's more than enough onboard the SD11 alone to deal with a huge range of applications.

SoundGrid Ready

With the new DiGiCo SoundGrid module added to your SD Ten console and linked to an external PC server, you’ll have instant access to up to 16 fully integrated low latency Waves stereo processor racks on the SD Ten, perfect for either front-of-house or monitors.Plus, once registered, you can use your TDM plugins collections too!

I/O

16 Microphone pre amps, eight line outputs and two mono AES I/O are provided, in addition to which users have the option to connect a DiGiCo D-Rack to the CAT5E port. This provides a remote I/O rack frame with an additional 32 Microphone inputs and up to 16 outputs. Further connections are a MADI port, GPI/O, MIDI, Overview screen output, Word Clock I/O, an Ethernet port for console remote control / networking and a USB port for file exchange and session backup.

Highlights

Super FPGA

Stealth Digital Processing (Super FPGA) technology

Gives unparalleled sonic quality, performance and reliability. Future proofed technology, proven in the award winning SD7 and SD8 and SD9 on some of the world's largest concert tours, musical theatre productions and prestigious installations. Now, the SD11 gives the same stunning sonic performance in a compact, rackmountable form.

8 Flexi Channels

32 Channels with Full Processing (8 Flexi Channels)

The SD11 features 32 input channels with full processing, eight of which can be configured as full Flexi Channels. All inputs have dual mono inputs for fast ‘Main’ and ‘Alt’ channel switching, which are ideal for corporate events where a large number of spare microphones may be required.

Giant 15-inch TFT Touch Screen

Giant 15-inch TFT Touch Screen

The giant 15” full colour TFT LCD touch sensitive screen means you can forget complex menu-driven interfaces, because nothing is ever further than a touch away. Effects, dynamics and equalisation can be summoned up for each channel in a split second, with no hunting through multiple menus.

Ultra High Audio Processing

Ultra High Audio Processing

The SD11's standard input channel processing includes channel delay; single and multi channel presets; HPF and LPF, with an industry leading 24db per octave; four bands of parametric EQ with band curve selection; compressor and gate; moveable insert point and access to all bussing. Standard output channel processing includes output delay; four bands of parametric EQ; filtering; compressor and gate; moveable insert point; groups with buss to buss routing; and Auxes that have direct talk to output with dim control for fast monitor communication.

Local I/O on Console

Local I/O on Console

16 Microphone pre amps, eight line outputs and two mono AES I/O are provided, in addition to which users have the option to connect a DiGiCo D-Rack to the CAT5E port. This provides a remote I/O rack frame with an additional 32 Microphone inputs and up to 16 outputs.

12 Flexi Busses

12 Flexi Busses

One of the more unusual features for a digital console with the SD11’s small footprint is that it has 12 Flexi Busses, which can be user configured as either mono or stereo. In its maximum configuration these could be used as 12 stereo mixes - equal to a remarkable 24 busses.

Rackmount or Table Top

Rackmount or Table Top

Now you can raise your expectations of what can be achieved within the familiar format of a compact 19” rackmount or table top mixer. With the SD11, the whole world of DiGiCo technologies is at your fingertips, redefining the performance of a digital mixer in this form factor.

Construction

Tough Durable Construction

Manufactured with a steel chassis for strength and a polycarbonate-overlaid, aluminium work surface for reduced weight, the SD11 features 12 touch sensitive moving faders below a 15” touch sensitive screen. Such clarity of control means the SD11 is as simple to use at speed as any other DiGiCo console.
