The CDC seven is Cadac’s latest addition to the CDC series of digital consoles. It retains all of the feel and familiarity of the CDC six, with its major ergonomic advance in user operation and minimal learning curve, but up scales the operational flexibility with its 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 intuitive human 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 unique Monitor with Mix Focus Modes, as well as the ability to create custom layers.
As with all of Cadac’s digital consoles, the CDC seven uses Cadac’s proprietary audio protocol MegaCOMMS that 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 400μs; the industry’s lowest latency digital protocol.
