DiGiCo Promises No Compromises

CHESSINGTON, UK—Theaters, smaller churches, live music venues, and the corporate rental sector are just some of the markets DiGiCo says it is targeting with the launch of its new SD8 digital audio console, which made its bow at London’s PLASA tradeshow last month. Using the same Super FPGA technology as the larger SD7, announced last year, the SD8 offers a more compact and affordable package without, according to DiGiCo, compromising on quality or processing power.
“A lot of our customers have been asking us to produce a smaller console, but we didn’t want to use cheaper filters, controllers, or mic preamps,” James Gordon, managing director of DiGiCo, told SCN. “What we’ve done instead is to take a different approach to manufacturing which has enabled us to price the SD8 very competitively. Not only is it the cheapest console we’ve ever made,
DiGiCo’s new SD8 digital audio console it’s also cheaper than any comparable desk from other manufacturers.”
The SD8 is being assembled on a dedicated production line in Scotland, and Gordon commented: “Rather than use extruded aluminium, as we have before, the SD8 has a steel chassis which is easier to manufacture in volume. But the main thing for us is that is still extremely powerful, with up to 60 mono or stereo channels—the equivalent of 120 channels on a DSP console.”
