Cadac’s analogue mic-amps have been universally acclaimed as the premium mic-amp in the industry.
The design brief for a digital console was simple and consistent with the brand’s ethos for over 45 years – audio first.
Cadac’s digital consoles bear the hallmark of their analogue origins which can be traced back beyond the now legendary J-Type, which itself is still in production after nearly 25 years, to those classic consoles of the golden age of recording studios. The audio performance still retains its traditional wide dynamic range and low noise floor through a combination of unique analogue emulating algorithms and the latest 24-bit / 96 kHz Delta Sigma AD/DA convertors.
Another key to the Cadac sound is the attention paid to latency management – a major factor in digital audio performance and over looked by a majority of other digital consoles.
This video provides an overview of Cadac's CDC four:m latency management
All digital consoles take time to process audio. Combining signals with different paths and processing, most digital consoles when summing the multiple signals will be partly out of phase. Cadac digital consoles have an extensive automatic latency management system which manages all internal routing and associated processing latency, which means that all audio samples are synchronised before summing, resulting in absolute phase coherency at all outputs.
Both the CDC eight and the new CDC six on Cadac’s MegaCOMMS network have a latency of under 0.4 milliseconds, from analogue inputs on stage, through the console, to analogue outputs on stage. This makes them perfect for in-ear monitoring. All inputs and all outputs are time aligned to sample accuracy - no matter the routing or where they are located in the network.
