Version 4.0 CDC Console Software is the latest operating software upgrade for Cadac’s CDC eight, CDC six and CDC seven mixing desks.

Cadac CDC consolesThe addition of Sticky Channels enables the creation of custom layers with any combination of inputs, outputs, or VCAs on the main 16-channel fader bank – either ‘stuck’ to the left-hand side of the screen (starting at Channel 1) or the right-hand side (ending at Channel 16). On the CDC seven and CDC eight, this is an option for both screens, allowing two custom layers to be used at the same time. When a custom layer uses fewer than 16 Sticky Channels, the remainder operate as normal, either via the swipe or the layer buttons functions. Custom layers can also be assigned to the user assign buttons for fast access.

VCAs will also unfold if pressed from within a custom layer and on a CDC seven and CDC eight they can be spilled onto the second screen, significantly increasing speed and flexibility of work flow. Custom layers can still be simultaneously assigned to the 4-Channel Master Section.

Other features of v4.0 include an additional six buses if LCR is not required, Cross-Fade added to cue events, metering on each bus output within Monitor Mode, access to GEQ from Monitor Follow at the press of a button, a console lock, additional functions to the user define buttons, plus a revised Patching GUI.

‘The continuous development of Cadac’s intuitive gesture based GUI and OS workflow makes ever greater use of the flexibly provided by the touchscreen,’ says Marketing Manager, James Godbehear. ‘In the CDC seven we have a mix platform that combines all of the advances in v4.0 with the operational advantages of a dual screen, 36 fader configuration, all still within a relatively compact footprint. ‘With the swift learning curve of both the CDC seven and CDC six, coupled with their industry leading latency management system and unsurpassable audio performance, at a highly competitive price point, they both offer an incredibly attractive propositions for those who want something that stands apart from the normal offering of consoles.’
