DiGiCo’s SD8 console has already won an LDI2008 Debuting Product Award for its horsepower in a compact footprint, delivering the double-whammy of affordability and power. Apparently, our prestigious panel of sound designers agreed, making comments as straightforward as, “All I can say is we’re buying one.” Another judge comments that the console is the “best in class for entry-level digital audio control.” Need we say more? Well, just a few of its features include Stealth Digital Processing in a Tiger SHARC FX engine with effects, reverb, dynamics, output matrix, 37 moving faders, multifunction control knobs, electronic labeling, and a 15" touch-sensitive hi-res TFT display. DiGiCo products are distributed in the US by Group One Limited.
