Cadac debuts CDC six to the worship sector at WFX
USA – Immediately following its US launch at the 139th International AES Convention in New York, Cadac is showing the new CDC six medium format live sound console to the worship sector, on booth #935 at the WFX Expo.
“Following the considerable success we had with the CDC eight at WFX last year, we are very excited about showing the CDC six to the worship sector,” says marketing manager James Godbehear. “We think that the CDC six is a perfect fit for the market because of its exceptionally intuitive interface. Since we launched it at Prolight + Sound this year we have had people consistently commenting on how incredibly easy it is to navigate the surface and features.”
CDC six is based around a further development of Cadac’s advanced, highly acclaimed gesture-operation user interface, and with the same superlative audio performance and incredible low latency as the CDC eight, the CDC six represents a major ergonomic advance in user operation.
Traditional fixed physical controls have been replaced by an intuitive 'high agility' user interface, accessed via a 16:9 23.5 inch optically bonded touch screen, resulting in a fast, logical workflow without the compromises dictated by hardware-centric designs. The layout of the screen, encoders and OLEDS naturally leads to an instinctive use of 'touch and swipe', where the faders follow the swipe of the screen, ensuring full control at all time of any combination of inputs, outputs or VCAs displayed on the screen. This unique interface makes the CDC six an extremely intuitive console for any level of user to setup and use.
CDC six also comes preconfigured with an integrated 64x64 Waves card for direct multi-track recording to a laptop and connection to any Waves MultiRack SoundGrid server. This allows up to 64 channels of Waves studio-grade plug-ins to simultaneously run alongside CDC six’s own native effects options, with the Waves GUI displayed on the console’s touchscreen for control.
Cadac is also showing the flagship CDC eight-32 live sound console and the CDC four:m compact digital console, alongside a full complement of MegaCOMMS audio network components, the CDC MC Router and CDC MC MADI and CDC MC Dante network bridges. All consoles will be running on the MegaCOMMS network via the CDC MC Router.
MegaCOMMS is Cadac’s proprietary high definition audio network designed especially for live performance applications. With an industry leading sub 400μs system latency (from on-stage inputs to outputs – including all console processing and all AD/DA conversions), MegaCOMMS’ micro second latency performance compares with the millisecond specifications of competing digital consoles and audio networks. The unique latency is married with absolute phase coherence, the result of complete sample synchronisation before summing, to provide exemplary audio performance in a digital audio network, capable of transmitting up to 3072 channels of bi-directional 24-bit/96kHz audio, control data and clock, on up to 150 metres of RG6 cable.
