CDC FOUR

The CDC Four is an all new development from the team at CADAC, based on a proprietary DSP mix platform.

The desk performs equally well with recording as it does in its primary design sector the live market. This is achieved with an optional Firewire interface which allows recording and playback through the same cable. Input channels can be increased for the live sector with the optional MADI Stagebox giving another 32 inputs from stage.

The console features 16 fully motorised channel faders, high-resolution TFT colour display and fully recallable scene memory. Superior sound quality is achieved by using specially developed ultra-low distortion EQ filters, true analogue sounding compressors, 96kHz 24bit Delta Sigma AD/DA converters and fourth generation,32/40-bit floating point SHARC processors.

The wide dynamic range, low noise mic preamps feature premium input ICs with outstanding CMRR.

The Central Assignment Module (CAM) controls Equalisation, Group Assignment, VCA control, Effects, Auxiliary Sends and Dynamics. Each of these functions has a discrete control with no ‘doubling up’ or menu scrolling. This enables the desk to be operated as quickly as its analogue counterpart.

Another benefit is the Master Section which has its exclusive controls for Output EQ, and Dynamics.

The central 7-inch hi-resolution colour TFT display shows detailed views of all the channel parameters along with Scene control, effects modules, MIDI status, editing and routing control.

Rotary encoders can be interrogated by pushing the appropriate control and getting the value, mode or function displayed.

Complex buss routing, auxiliary pre/post assignment and detailed dynamics are shown in the display. This leaves more front panel space for quick access to real time functions.

The CDC Four has a plug in port which allows either the implementation of a Firewire recording/playback board or a MADI board for live stage to desk expansion.

The Firewire board will allow you to stream your input channels to your DAW (computer requires a working Firewire port) and record multiple channels of your choice. Recorded channels can then be played back through the desk into individual channels for adjustment or for system setting when the live artiste is not available.

The optional MADI interface and CDC-RACK is an ergonomically designed stage box solution to extend the input and output capability of the CDC FOUR. Using a low latency MADI interface to connect to the CDC FOUR, the stage box can be located virtually anywhere to give either local expansion or be located on the stage to act as a fully featured stage box.

Featuring up to 32 MIC/LINE input channels with remote controllable gain, signal present indication and Phantom Power. There are also up to 16 LINE outputs, making the unit perfect for many different applications.
