DiGiGridDGS-XL

i7 Extreme SoundGrid DSP Server

Description

This super-powerful Intel i7-based DSP unit will handle your heaviest mixes,

Used on major tours and in pro studios, the DiGiGrid DGS-XL Extreme server will let you run as many Waves and other SoundGrid-compatible plugins as you want, on as many channels as you’ve got, and give your live shows studio- grade sound. For example, you can throw plugins modelled on the world’s top consoles on each and every channel, and basically make your mixer sound like a classic top-tier desk.

The DiGiGrid DGS-XL incorporates a 4 port PoE capable switch, perfect for Live applications where DiGiGrid Desktop and additional rackmount interfaces are going to be used.

The maximum number of plugins that can be tested given system limitations is 512 mono and 256 stereo (64 and 32 StudioRacks, respectively).

Plugin benchmark results may vary slightly from one system setup to another.

While most plugins perform most efficiently at 44.1 kHz, a few perform as or even more efficiently at 96 kHz thanks to their upsampling or to non-sample-rate-dependent algorithms.
