CDC eight

CDC eight 32

CDC eight is designed specifically for the highly demanding worlds of concert touring and fixed installation. To help meet these exacting demands Cadac has taken a highly innovative approach to the user interface and has designed a far less menu dependent console compared to traditional digital consoles, resulting in a fast, logical workflow. Gone are the multiple strips of restrictive fixed physical controls found on conventional analogue and a majority of digital consoles and have been replaced by an intuitive “high agility” user interface accessed via 24 inch touch screens.

The CDC eight is available in two surface configurations; the dual screen 32 fader console (CDC eight-32) and a smaller single screen 16 fader version (CDC eight-16), both are identical in capacity and capability but allow a choice of console footprint to fit the space dictated by the application. All versions are housed in a beautifully engineered, road ready chassis, complete with milled aluminium side cheeks and Cadac’s traditional “warm to the touch” wooden arm rest.

The combination of an exceptional user interface, legendary Cadac mic-pre’s, state-of-the art DSP and FPGA processing technology, with incredibly low latency and multiple surface options, makes the CDC eight a unique proposition for those who do not want to be faced with either audio or creative compromises.
