DiGiCo has released a series of software and firmware upgrades for its SD series of consoles.

Free to existing customers and to new customers who purchased an SD console before the updates were issued at Pro Light & Sound 2012, these add features that, in many cases, will expand the console’s capabilities ‘by more than 100 per cent’.

DiGiCo SD11Designed for use a desktop console or mounted in a 19-inch rack the software/firmware SD11 upgrade makes it an SD11i, with added flexi-channels, Dynamic EQ and the addition of DiGiTubes and Multichannel inputs (previously only available on the SD7).

The SD9’s software and firmware upgrades bring a significant increase in channel count, dynamic EQ, multiband compressors and matrix, with the addition of DiGiTuBes, Reorder of Buses and Multichannel inputs (formerly only available on the SD7).

Overdrive 2 for the SD8, meanwhile, provides the entry-level console with up to 60 stereo inputs (equivalent to 120 flexi channels of DSP), 24 flexi buses (stereo or mono) plus two solo busses and master, four-band parametric EQ (with dynamic EQ on up to eight channels), hi/low-pass filters and dynamics on all inputs and outputs, 24 graphic EQs, eight stereo effects, and a 16 x 12 matrix. When fitted with the optical option, the SD8 supports up to four racks, providing up to 240 I/O.

The Nitrous upgrade gives an increase in power to DiGiCo’s SD10 console, with a significant expansion in dynamic EQ, multiband compressors and FX, plus matrix expansion from 16 x 12 to 16 x 16 and the addition of DiGiTuBes, reorder of buses and Multichannel inputs.

Mach3 for the flagship SD7 incorporates all the new features found in the upgraded SD range, plus extras that are exclusive to the SD7.

‘When we developed the SD series, we used FPGA technology to ensure the future expandability of this range of consoles,’ says, DiGiCo MD, James Gordon. ‘Being able to give such substantial upgrades to our customers, free of charge, is one of the benefits that we’re delighted to be able to offer.’
