RG Jones will be taking delivery of their shiny new DigiCo SD12 this week. Fitted with optics and Waves card, this little desk is surprisingly good value considering what it delivers encapsulating the best features of the SD an S series.
The SD12 features 72 input channels with full processing, 36 aux/group busses with full processing, a 12 x 8 matrix with full processing, LR/LCR buss with full processing, 12 stereo FX units, 16 Graphic EQs, 119 Dynamic EQs, 119 multiband compressors and 119 DiGi-TuBes, 12 Control Groups (VCA) and SD Series Stealth Core 2 software, making it compatible with all other SD Series sessions.
One of the SD12’s outstanding features is its dual 15-inch digital touchscreens – previously only seen on the SD7 and SD5 - which provide 24 channels in one view, dual operator mode and the ability for the right-hand screen to be the Master, as well as advanced connectivity via optional DMI cards, yet the SD12 still maintains a workflow that will be familiar to anyone working in live touring, corporate, installation, House of Worship, theatre or broadcast.
First stop – Goldfrapp tour which heads out to Europe https://www.goldfrapp.com/live/ on Wednesday 18th with Simon Honywill at the helm 'the SD12 is a fantastic console for touring on this scale. It's compact but has the channel count to cover much bigger shows than Goldfrapp and I will be taking it out with Katherine Jenkins and her orchestra for her Christmas tour, but for now I'm looking forward to getting people moving to Goldfrapp's pumping electronics, made all the sweeter for being on a Digico!'
