Designed to expand the connectivity of DiGiCo consoles, the Little Red Box and Little Blue Box were released at the London Plasa show.

Little BoxesDiGiCo’s Little Red Box allows connection of a D-Rack or a Madi Rack (DiGi-Rack or MiNi-Rack) to two SD9s digital mixing desks. Currently, a single D-Rack will serve one SD9, with no way of sharing the rack – the Little Red Box enables a D-Rack, a main console and a secondary console to be connected together. The main console controls all gains and outputs on the rack, while the second console acts as a ‘receive only’ module for the inputs, allowing a rack to be shared and and operated at either at front-of-house or monitors. DiGiCo’s gain tracking system can be used across the connections.

The Split Madi switch allows splitting of a D-Rack or one of DiGiCo’s other racks. On an SD9, this connector is usually limited to 32 inputs and 16 outputs. By connecting a DiGi-Rack it allows all 56 I/O. The Little Red Box is powered via USB, with a second USB port acting as a ‘thru’, meaning there is no loss of available connections.

The Little Blue Box allows an SD9, D-Rack and Madi console (SD8, SD7 or a D-Series) to be connected, enabling a D-Rack to be shared between two or three consoles. The SD9/Madi switch allows select of the SD9 or another console plugged in to the Madi connector to control the D-Rack.

The Console RX. Auxiliary output is designed to be the redundant run on an SD8 or SD7. Alternatively, it can be split to another console with one SD9 using a Cat5 connection and one Madi pair for the SD8, which could then feed off to a recorder or another console.

The Little Blue Box is powered via USB, with a second USB port acting as a thru.

Both boxes can be connected to the mixing console with a Velcro strip, or by a specially designed 19-inch rack plate.
