Auxiliary Sends
The D-show Console Is Configurable Within Software To Have 8 Or 16 Auxiliary Sends, Individually Linkable To Form Any Combination Of Mono And Stereo Sends. For Example, A Foh Mixing Application May Use Eight Sends To Feed Onboard Plug-ins Or Outboard Effects Processors, Whereas A Stage Monitor Mix Application Might Choose The 16 Aux Send Configuration To Accommodate An Assortment Of Mono Wedge Mixes And Stereo Personal Monitor Mixes.all Aux Sends Are Configurable As Pre- Or Post-fader, With Multiple Pre-fader Pickoff Points Available (pre-eq, Pre-mute, Pre-fader). The Even-numbered Sends In A Stereo-linked Odd/even Pair Become The Channel Pan Control To That Stereo Send. Alternately, Operators May Have The Aux Send Pan Follow The Channel's Main Pan Assignment.

Dynamics
The D-show Console Features A High-quality Compressor/limiter And Expander/gate On Every Input Channel, Eliminating The Need For Much Additional Outboard Gear. Dynamics Processors Are Among The Most Difficult To Accurately Emulate In The Digital Domain. D-show's Internal Dynamics Processors Were Carefully Modeled And Vetted Against Industry Standard Processors Using Real-world Live Source Material, Ensuring Usable, Natural, And Musical Results. The Key Signal (sidechain) Section Permits Frequency-conscious Compression And Gating. Key Listen Routes The Sidechain Signal To The Solo Bus, Allowing Operators To Hear Exactly What The Compressor Or Gate Is "listening" To, And Precisely Filter Out Sounds Which May Cause False Triggering.

Assignable Output Encoders
The Encoders In D-show's Master Section Are Highly Assignable, Allowing Operators To Control Plug-in Parameters, Aux Masters, Group Masters And Pans, Pq Sends And Pans, And Matrix Sends. Leds In This Section Indicate If An Output Is Being Processed By A Hardware Insert, A Dynamics Processor, Or An Eq. For Matrix Mixing, Four Additional Encoders Are Assigned To Control The Contributions Of The Lcr And A User-selectable Extra Source. All Outputs Are Monitored And Metered Post-fader (afl). A Sixcharacter Lcd Displays The Channel's Name, While The Software Display Provides A List Of All Channels That Contribute To A Group, Matrix Or Vca Mix, To Aid In Checking Routing.

Input
D-show's Input Section Provides Full Control Of The Remote Mic Preamps In The Stage Rack, Digital Input Gain, And Stereo Input Balance. Input Signal Controls Are Provided For Controlling The Remote Mic Preamps' 48v Phantom Power And Phase Invert. Stereo Inputs Are Balanced Using The Right Offset To Trim The Right Channel Relative To The Left. The Input Gain Encoder Controls The Analog Level Of The Remote-controlled Stage Mic Preamps, Or The Digital Level If An Fx Return Or Line-level Input Is Selected.d-show's Unique Gain Guess Function Enables Operators To Quickly Achieve An Optimum Gain Setting, Saving Precious Setup Time. Simply Press The Input Gain Control - Even Across Multiple Channels - To Have The System Sample Incoming Signals And Automatically Set The Gain For A 0db Reference. All Input Settings, Including Mic Preamp Gain, Are Completely Recallable Using Snapshot Automation, Allowing Fast Reset And Changeover Between Acts On A Multiband Bill.

Graphic EQs
The Digidesign D-show Console Can Provide Up To 24 Graphic Eqs, Which Operators Can Insert Across Any Output. Each Uses Standard 31-band Iso Frequency Centers, With +/-12db Of Gain, And A Constant Q Design To Ensure What Operators See On The Graphic Faders Is As Close As Possible To What They'll Hear. A Dedicated Set Of Assignment Controls On The Main Section Of The Console Allow Operators To Dial In Graphic Eq Settings Using The Eight Input Faders Nearest To The Master Faders.meter Bridge And System Statusthe Meter Bridge On Digidesign D-show Displays Left, Center/mono, And Right Output Levels, And Features Eight Assignable Output Meters Which Can Show Aux, Group, Matrix, Or Personal Q Output Levels. If None Of These Switches Is Selected The Meters Automatically Follow The Selected Output Fader Bank. The Selected Channel Meters Display Separate Left And Right Input Levels, Compressor And Gate Gain Reduction, And Stereo Status For The Channel Presently Targeted To The Acs.user Settings Allow Operators To Choose Between Peak And Rms Ballistics For All Meters, And To Set Separate Clip Thresholds For Input And Output Metering. The Status Of All Major System Components Is Constantly Monitored. Any Faults Or Loss Of Communication Are Indicated In Real Time On The Heads Up System Status Display.for More Information On Digidesign's Groundbreaking Venue System, Please Contact Your Sweetwater Sales Engineer At 800-222-4700.

Flexible Encoders
Every Channel Strip Features Two Assignable Encoders, Allowing Mixers To Quickly Adjust Key Parameters Without Assigning Each Channel To The Console's Central Section. This Approach Is Essential For Aux Sends, Where Mixers Typically Adjust The Send Levels From Several Channels Simultaneously. The Encoders Can Also Be Assigned To Control Gain, Pan, And Threshold For The Gate And Compressor, Which Often Need Adjustment As The Input Gain Is Trimmed.the Flip To Faders Function Allows The Currently Selected Encoder Function To Be Adjusted On The Channel Faders, Providing A Fast And Efficient Way To Generate Monitor Mixes On The 16 Aux Busses. The Select Button Targets The Channel To The Assignable Channel Section (page 12) For Adjustment Of All Channel Parameters. Custom Bi-color, Transflective Lcds Ensure That Channel Names And Parameter Values Remain Crisp And Visible, Even In Full Sunlight. Long Channel Names Are Intelligently Abbreviated To Fit The Six-character Display.

Direct Out
All Input Channels And Output Busses Feature An Assignable Direct Output With Variable Level Control. Operators Can Assign Direct Outputs To Any Stage, Foh, Or Recording Output For Easy Interfacing To An Analog Or Digital Recording System, Or For Creating Additional Signal Splits, Press Feeds, Or Processor Loops.multiple Pickoff Points Allow Operators To Select Exactly Where In The Processing Chain The Direct Out Is Fed From. For Example, When Doing A Live Recording, Operators May Choose To Record The Direct Outputs Immediately After The Preamp Stage, Capturing The Raw Signal, Unaffected By The Channel Eq, Dynamics, And Fader Settings Used For The Live Mix.
