Stealth Core 2 is a major upgrade to the Stealth Digital Processing for its SD series digital mixers that delivers significantly enhanced processing from the audio core of DiGiCo SD series consoles, taking the range to a new level in terms of both processing channels and functionality.*
Available as an upgrade option for existing users and shipping as standard on new consoles, Stealth Core 2 includes an application code upgraded that delivers significantly enhanced facilities, future-proofing SD series consoles and continuing to keep DiGiCo a step ahead.
Customers have already seen the many benefits Stealth Core 2 delivers, including an updated user experience, which includes a brand new graphic interface on console screens, upgraded FPGA power delivering enhanced processing, full Dynamic EQ, DiGiTuBes and MB Dynamics on every channel and buss.
“The release of Stealth Core 2 to the SD line up of consoles is further proof of the forward thinking of DiGiCo design,” says Tom Butson, Senior ACS / Product Design at CLAIR Global / Lititz. “To see a digital desk we’ve owned for a number of years still expanding its channel, buss and overall feature set is amazing. DiGiCo sticks by its customers and listens to what they need. The architecture of the SD consoles allows DiGiCo the flexibility and expansion to meet those needs.”
“I think it’s great,” agrees Chris Bogg from event production company dBS Solutions. “The graphics are a lot cleaner on the dynamic and effects, the added channels and busses create much more flexibility on our larger shows. We are finding that our SD9s are doing more and more work where the input count is huge and the FOH footprint needs to be as small as it can be, and Stealth Core 2 really helps us there. It’s a winner all round.”
“Stealth Core 2 has made our substantial inventory, in some cases, double in channel capacity, providing added value and longevity,” says Skan Audio’s Tom Tunney. “Skan has always been eager to be at the forefront of product updates and Stealth core 2 enables us to provide our clients with the latest console enhancements.”
“I am new to the DiGiCo family, but was immediately convinced that I’ve made the right investment when the Core 2 update was announced for the SD9,” adds Frank Voet of Mono in Belgium. “Core 2 dramatically increases processing power, from the existing 48 channels and 24 busses to 96 channels and 48 busses, with multiband dynamics, dynamic EQs and DiGiTubes on all inputs and outputs. I really appreciate the DiGiCo philosophy of adding horsepower to existing products every couple of years, and not changing the product lineup itself, which would devalue your previous purchase.”
“For us as a rental company, DiGiCo is safeguarding our investment whilst keeping DiGiCo consoles high on the requested on artist specs,” says Dave Shepherd of bcs.
“The uptake on Stealth Core 2 has been astonishing,” says DiGiCo MD James Gordon. “We didn’t doubt that the benefits of opening up so much more capacity on our SD range of consoles would be obvious, but the level of sales has surprised even us.”
