Last night the technicians came and took away the SSL L500+ digital console to go on tour. This morning the Digico SD12 took its place on my workbench for evaluation, including probing for software weaknesses and hardware reliability. More fun time poking and prodding this unit to see how it behaves under pressure. It's quite a compact unit considering its resources: 72 input channels with 4-band parametric EQ, 2 dynamic inserts (compressor/gate/de-esser) 38 mix busses configurable aux/group/masters all with full EQ and compressor/gate/de-esser. 12 onboard digital FX engines 16 1/3 oct graphic EQs 12 VCAs, 8 mute groups, user programmable macros. Full Automation package Remote overview screen. 48/96k sample rates The memory in the mixer is phenomenal, but the memory in my head is reaching saturation.
