På årets Musik Mässa i Frankfurt presenterade DiGiCo ny mjukvara till SD7 - med den nya mjukvaran befäster SD7:an idag sig som ett av de mest avancerade mixerborden på marknaden.Den nya mjukvaran innehåller följande nyheter:
the world’s first Super FPGA preamp tube emulation,
with full drive and bias control. Available on all 256 processing paths, including channels, auxes, groups or matrix with usage monitored via the DiGi-TuBe icon on the console’s screen when activated. A delay usage meter is also now shown on the the meterbridge when this function is used.
now available on all 256 processing paths and on all four EQ bands, effectively adding 1024 frequency driven dynamics to the console. These are individually switchable and can be easily monitored via the gain reduction / expansion meter.
Multi Band Compressor:
again available on all 256 paths, adding an extra two compressors per path giving a further 512 dynamics to the console.
Another first are the 16 floating point stereo Super FPGA Stealth digital reverbs. But the power does not stop there. Utilising the capabilities of SD7’s Tiger SHARCs, there are now up to 32 floating point stereo effects (according to which types you are using), including delays, choruses, pitch shifters, etc. This gives an astounding 48 stereo effects housed within the console. Even with today’s more compact outboard packages, this saves the equivalent of 48U, or 2.13 metres, of rack space and also alleviates the need for 96 inputs and 96 outputs for patching of effects. In fact, the returns alone would fill the entire channel count of many other digital mixing consoles.
Talk-to-buss with dim function:
designed with the monitor engineer in mind, this is a dedicated talkback channel that can be routed to any aux buss, allowing direct communication to any wedge or in ear mix. When activated, this function also has the ability to instantly dim the audio to a particular mix by the desired amount required by the engineer or artist.
Eight bands of Parametric EQ:
now available for all 128 busses for auxes, groups and matrix adding an astounding 512 bands of EQ to the console, allowing adjustments for the most demanding of situations.
