Cadac debuts CDC platform in New York
16 May 2012
USA - Cadac Holdings is exhibiting and demonstrating its new CDC eight digital production console to the US theatre sound industry as a sponsor of the Live Design Broadway Sound Master Classes. It will also be the first showing of the new 32 fader frame variant in the US.
Cadac's US theatre sound distributor, RF Productions of NY, Inc, will be showing the new console to theatre design professionals and students during manufacturers' showcase sessions, from 19 to 20 May, in the intimate confines of the 99 seat Abe Burrows Theatre at NYU. Cadac's participation is part of the New Technology Presentation, with RF Production's Tom Bensen and Cadac International Sales Manager, Ben Millson, in attendance.
Critically for the theatre market, the CDC eight offers a powerful mix solution, supporting a uniquely high input count on a desk with such a compact footprint; and at a cost that makes it affordable on productions that could not justify the cost or scale of a big Cadac analogue board. Moreover, feature wise and sonically, the CDC eight compares favourably with a Cadac J-Type. It has 40 configurable output busses which can be programmed as groups or matrixes, and additionally there are 16 internal VCA groups. The console boasts up to 128 input channels, and using the input selection on each channel to sum two inputs together, that can be expanded to a potential 256.
Commenting on the ongoing CDC eight development programme, Cadac senior development manager Peter Hearl, states, "The CDC eight was devised as a console to address the widest possible range of applications to the highest standards of performance and with Cadac's heritage, theatre sound was always going to be an important market for this console.
"The theatre development programme for the desk is addressing a number of issues and applications, including looking to the potential compatibility of the CDC eight with the J-Type SAM theatre automation software, enabling the recall of all SAM settings on the new console. The programme objective is to make the CDC eight a great Cadac theatre sound desk."
