CDC six / CDC eight new software improves sonic performance even further

UK – Cadac is showing the CDC eight and new CDC six digital sound production consoles at this year’s Plasa show. Increasingly recognised as the world’s best sounding mixing consoles, these are being shown for the first time with the latest software update, which provides signal clocking enhancements that, incredibly, further improve the exceptional sonic performance. The software is described as having “a definite noticeable improvement on sound quality”.

The company is exhibiting a total of three CDC six consoles, along with a CDC eight-32 and a CDC eight-16 console on the booth. These are networked and running audio via the CDC MC Router and MegaCOMMS audio network, demonstrating the industry leading sub 400µs system latency (from on-stage inputs to outputs – including all console processing and all AD/DA conversions). CADAC’s micro second latency performance compares with the millisecond latency claimed for competing consoles and networks. The unique latency is married with absolute phase coherence, resulting from complete sample synchronization before summing, to provide exemplary audio performance in a digital audio network, capable of transmitting up to 3072 channels of bi-directional 24-bit/96kHz audio, control data and clock, on up to 150 metres of RG6 cable.

Cadac ’s CDC MC MADI and CDC MC Dante network bridges will also be running on the network, and the integrated Waves soundcard on a CDC six will be running Waves MultiRack SoundGrid server, which enables up to 64 channels of Waves studio-grade plug-ins to simultaneously run alongside the native effects options (on both the CDC six and CDC eight), with the Waves GUI displayed on the console’s touch screen for control.

Cadac is also showing the LIVE1 compact analogue and CDC four:m compact digital consoles on its booth.
