The SD8 has a fixed architecture and employs a smaller Super FPGA than the SD7, yet it benefits from all the major features and versatility of the acclaimed DiGiCo D Series, plus the advances already made in the SD7. This gives a superlative performance to price ratio, allowing DiGiCo to offer an entry-level console, with remote pre amps, at a price point that has never been possible before.
The control surface has 37 motorised faders, dedicated and multi-function control knobs and electronic labelling. It also has a 15”, super high resolution, touch sensitive TFT LCD backlit display.
The SD8 has 24 main channel faders and 12 assignable aux and touch sensitive master faders. Each bank of 12 faders can be instantly assigned as channels or masters, allowing all 36 main faders to control inputs if desired, while any bank of 12 can be assigned to the touch screen for fine-tuning. The SD8 provides, as standard, a 12 x 12 output matrix, its 12 busses being additional to the console’s 24 stereo, solo and master busses.
60 mono or stereo channels – the equivalent of 120 channels of full DSP processing - and the combined power of the SD8’s technologies means that the number and quality of effects, dynamics or other functions is available to all channels simultaneously, no matter how the console is set up.
The SD8 supplies engineers with a wealth of features, some of which, such as snapshots, familiar to D Series users, whilst others are new to the SD8, such as the high resolution, 20-LED bargraph meters, right beside each channel fader.
