Just as the iconic D5 Live once fuelled the growth of digital mixing, now the DiGiCo SD5 adds the immense power of Stealth Digital Processing and floating-point Super FPGA technology to the feature set that changed the world of professional audio.

A total of 37 faders are laid out in three easy-to-operate banks of 12 with one master fader plus three 15-inch full colour TFT touchscreens for immediate access to functions and multi-user applications. Two Interactive Dynamic Metering (IDM) displays offer the same at-a-glance operation as the SD7, while the centrally located master screen is incorporated into the meter-bridge, so the engineer’s attention remains where it belongs – on the artist.

With the SD5, you define the workflow: recall or save presets on the channel strip; recall or save snapshots using the master screen or simply use the dedicated switches on the surface. Special functions can be assigned and accessed instantly via 40 Smart Key Macros, accessed via four layers of 10 RGB backlit keys.

Under The Hood

With up to 253 processing channels at 48kHz/96kHz, the SD5 is reassuringly powerful. Stand
