The CDC seven is Cadac's latest addition to the CDC series of digital consoles. It retains the familiarity of the CDC six, with its major ergonomic advance in user operation and minimal learning curve, but upgrades operational flexibility with dual, large-format 23.5" 16:9 touch screens and a physical fader count of 36. The channel input count also expands to 96 but retains the CDC six's 56 busses; 48 of them being fully configurable.
The CDC seven's interface and feature set are designed with the primary intention of aiding the workflow and allowing the engineer full creative freedom, unhindered by the operation of the technology. The standard feature set includes a Waves SoundGrid interface, Cadac's Monitor with Mix Focus Modes, and the ability to create custom layers.
Making use of Cadac's proprietary audio protocol MegaCOMMS allows a total through-system propagation delay from inputs on stage to outputs, including all console processing and A-D/D-A conversions, of just under 400s, the industry's lowest latency digital protocol, according to the manufacturer.
