DiGiCo SD10: Trusted all over the world

The trusted choice of engineers the world over, the SD10 delivers a wealth of flagship features derived from the market-leading SD7, plus substantial audio firepower in a fully-loaded console that has become a mainstay of modern mixing.

Driven by Stealth Digital Processing and floating-point Super FPGA technology, the SD10 packs the power and flexibility to meet even the most demanding requirements. Ease of operation is assured with three banks of 12 motorised faders and one master fader, each with its own high resolution LED bar graph meter. All functions are quick to hand courtesy of the centrally located 15-inch backlit colour-keyed TFT touchscreen.

With the SD10, flexibility comes as standard: recall or save presets on the channel strip; recall or save snapshots using the master screen or simply use the dedicated switches on the surface. Special functions can be assigned and accessed instantly via 40 Smart Key Macros, accessed via four layers of 10 RGB backlit keys.

Under The Hood

With 144 processing channels at 48kHz/96kHz, the SD10 packs the muscle to handle the most challenging of shows.

Standard channel processing across inputs and outputs includes Channel Delay, Single and Multi-Channel Presets, Dual insert points, Hi- and Lo-pass filters @ 24dB/octave, four-band parametric EQ with band curve selection and DiGiCo’s renowned DYN 1 (Compressor, De-esser or Multiband Compressor) and DYN 2 (Gate, Compressor or Ducker).

You will also benefit from 218 Dynamic EQ processors, all of which can be assigned to any input or output channel, delivering dynamic processing over the four standard parametric bands, plus 218 Multiband Compressors and 218 DiGiTuBes.

All channels deliver the same pure signal path and feature set, so no matter how you set up your console, you never lose any resources. Within the master section are 24 gangable 32-band graphic EQs, 24 stereo effects (selectable from a palette of 33), and 24 control groups (VCAs). Using snapshots, engineers can switch between complete configurations at a touch.

In addition, the SD10’s 64 busses can be configured as groups or auxiliary busses, while even more configurability is delivered by a 24 x 24 output matrix, dual solo busses, and a Master buss. Unlike all other digital console manufacturers, you don’t lose Aux or Group Busses when using the Matrix as they are in addition, including the Master buss.

I/O

An abundance of I/O can be found on the rear of the SD10, including eight mic line inputs, eight line outputs, eight mono AES I/O, two MADI connections with redundant cabling connections; and 16 GPI and GPO connections – expandable to 32.

The SD10 also works seamlessly with the DiGiCo SD-Rack, which delivers up to 192kHz high resolution analogue conversion. This opens the door to a wealth of interfacing options and enhanced flexibility: when used with the Optocore interface, up to 14 SD-Racks and five redundant engine consoles can connect to one optical loop for an incredible 1,152 I/O connections (56 inputs and 56 outputs per SD-Rack). That’s enough to comfortably mix a Philharmonic orchestra.

Get instant access to 32 fully integrated low-latency Waves stereo MultiRacks, each with up to eight plug-ins per rack, by fitting an optional DiGiCo SoundGrid module linked to external SoundGrid or DiGiGrid servers, giving a total of 128 additional I/O.
