By PSW Staff • July 14, 2017 DiGiCo's S31 digital console DiGiCo has announced the release of its latest V2.0 software upgrade for its S-Series consoles, adding key features including increased channel count for both the S21 and S31 from 40 to 48 input channels. This free of charge upgrade gives S-Series users 48 mono/stereo switchable flexi-channels, the equivalent to 46 buses at 96kHz, with no processing limitations. The upgrade also includes: — New switching functionality for the order of EQ and dynamics modules. — New stereo width and balance controls added to the input processing view for stereo input channels. — The addition of a disable master mute function. — New backup user partition function allowing all user sessions to be copied to an external USB key at the same time. — A clear user partition function allowing all user sessions to be deleted from the user partition. DiGiCo’s S-Series consoles have been designed with meticulous attention to detail, using the same FPGA components as its SD Series consoles, combined with a new ARM QuadCore RISC processor. “This is what has allowed us to produce an entry level range with the same fundamental technological values as every other DiGiCo console, and with faster processing and lower power consumption than any other console in its class,” says DiGiCo’s general manager, Austin Freshwater. “The S-Series, like all DiGiCo products, offers an unrivaled return on investment, with pricing starting from just $6,995.00.” DiGiCo Tagged with: Consoles DiGiCo Digital New Products Software · all topics Subscribe to Live Sound International Subscribe to Live Sound International magazine.
