For theatrical environments, the Relative Faders in Cue Groups is now a Macro command; Auxes, Groups and Matrix channels can now be added to channel sets; and Channel Cues now defaults to showing names.

And for broadcast applications, Backstop PFL is now functional on output busses, plus there is a new option on the SD7B and SD10B for Speaker Mute to do Dim.

"Waves is happy to provide the increasing number of DiGiCo SoundGrid MultiRack users the added benefit of doubling their rack capacity," comments Mick Olesh, Waves EVP Sales and Marketing. "Increasing the number of racks provides DiGiCo SoundGrid users the capability of running 32 racks of Waves and third party plugins to their workflow."

"It was always our intention to ensure that our SD range of consoles was as future-proof as we could possibly make it," adds DiGiCo Managing Director James Gordon. "We believe we have a comprehensive range of consoles currently on the market that deliver exactly what our customers need and want, whatever the changing demands of their use requires. Being able to deliver such substantial upgrades again and again means that they should stay that way."
