Following the s preview of Mustard earlier this year, DiGiCo has announced the first ‘flavour’ in its Spice Rack processor collection for Quantum 7 engine mixing consoles.

DiGiCo Quantum 7 Chilli 6 EQChilli 6 is a six-band, dynamic, multiband compressor/expander, comprising a four-band, fourth-order frequency splitter with adjustable crossover and slope control plus two independent fourth-order parametric EQ bands. The new processing can be freely inserted on any channel type in any position. Controlled from the console’s Master screen and its worksurface controls, Chilli 6’s two floating bands allow control of envelope shaping for definable frequency bands.

The compressor/expander’s Range control restricts maximum gain change between -24dB and +18dB, and a Dyn Angle control determines level at which maximum gain change occurs. In addition to featuring independent Attack and Release controls.

Mustard is a forthcoming set of algorithms and options for channel strip processing for the SD7 Quantum that offer enhanced flexibility and choice when extra control and creative adjustment are needed within a mix. Making full use of the Quantum engine’s seventh generation FPGA infrastructure, the Mustard channel can be used to deliver 64 channels of channel processing – in addition to the standard SD processing – to add preamp emulation, filters, EQ types, gate and a variety of compressor types to any existing channel strip. The Mustard Tube options include a fully controllable Pre-Amp Modeler, which gives users access to every aspect of their front-end drive, while the Mustard Dynamics include Vintage VCA and Optical compressor types that emulate some of the best-known devices available. All of this will enable users to add classic character and new textures to drums, bass, vocals, and guitars.
