The medium format Cadac CDC six, with its 80 input channels, 56 busses of which 48 are assignable, has been designed to provide a truly intuitive user interface, with class leading audio performance, in a very competitive package.

Using Cadac’s ‘high agility’ operating system, the CDC six is far less menu dependent in operation than other equivalent consoles, resulting in an easier learning curve and faster work flow.

As with the CDC seven-s, the most striking visual feature of the CDC six is the optically bonded 23.5 inch 16:9 high definition LCD touch screen, with digital encoders to the bottom and to the right of the screen. This unique combination of a large touch screen displaying an intuitive GUI linked with traditional encoders, results in an instinctive use of touch and swipe with the faders naturally following the GUI on the screen.

Not only is the CDC six intuitive to use, it has a number of features designed to aid the work flow and allow the engineer to creatively mix, rather than be hindered and limited by the console. These includes Cadac’s unique Monitor Mode with Mix Focus, as well as the ability to create Custom Fader Layers. All designed with the sole purpose to increase the speed of the work flow.

CDC six not only comes with its own 16 creative on board stereo effects but it also comes preconfigured with an integrated 64 x 64 Waves interface. This allows direct connection to a Waves MultiRack SoundGrid server and with it access to the Waves’ library of effects and it also enables multi-track recording to a laptop.

The CDC six uses Cadac’s MegaCOMMS digital audio network which has been designed to meet the requirements of the most challenging applications. Cadac’s audio protocol allows total through-system propagation delay from inputs on stage to outputs, including all console processing and AD / DA conversions, in 37 samples (@ 96 kHz), or just under 400us.

The combination of an exceptional user interface, legendary Cadac mic-pre’s, state-of-the art DSP and FPGA processing technology, with astonishingly low latency, makes the CDC six an incredible proposition for those who do not want to be faced with either audio or creative compromises.
