Prolight + Sound, Germany - Cadac Holdings Ltd Luton, Beds. UK. CADAC launched two new hardware products at Prolight+Sound, a new version of its CDC four compact digital console – the CDC four:m, featuring a 6 x 4 matrix – and the M16, a 3U 16 channel mic pre / MADI box, to bring the famous ‘CADAC Sound’ mic preamplifiers to any digital console, or live or studio production system.
The 6 x 4 matrix in the new CDC four:m includes 31 band graphic EQ, compressor/limiter and delay on all four channels, and 31 band graphic EQ on all Aux sends.
Commenting on the introduction of the CDC four:m, CADAC Brand Development Manager, Richard Ferriday, said, “The upgrade is in direct response to customer feedback, making the console more appropriately spec’d for use in small theatres and for corporate AV and smaller event applications.”
With 16 fully motorised channel faders, high-resolution TFT colour display and fully recallable scene memory, the compact digital console is a powerful production package. CADAC’s signature sound quality is provided by use of specially developed ultra-low distortion EQ filters, true analogue sounding compressors, 96 kHz 24-bit Delta Sigma AD/DA converters and fourth generation 32/40-bit floating point SHARC processors. It also has the advantage of being rack mountable making it ideal for situations requiring up to 56 channels in 14U of rack space.
The CDC four:m performs equally well in recording applications as it does as a live sound console. Multitrack recording is achieved with an optional MC MADI interface, while input channels can be increased for live applications with the optional MegaCOMMS stagebox, which provides an additional 32 inputs and the 16 outputs up to 150 metres (492 feet) away on stage.
The M16 builds on CADAC’s history of being at the forefront of high end professional audio development and has been engineered to deliver exceptional fidelity and reliability. With no less than 16 classic CADAC microphone amplifiers in a compact 19” 3U package, it has the additional benefit of an integrated three-way active split per channel with a combined MADI port. This combination makes the unit ideally suited for live, broadcast, recording, and a multitude of other applications; the integrated MADI interface means that third party digital consoles can easily upgrade their inputs with the definitive CADAC pre-amp.
