Developed with seventh-generation FPGA devices that further expand audio processing power and allows DiGiCo to provide its users with unrivaled flexibility.

Inside the Quantum engine, up to 2,000 channels can be transported across 458 processing paths at 96kHz. New GTX ports run at 6.6GHz while simple two-wire connections ensure the fastest possible data speeds to reach a new pinnacle in mixing capability. Fully scalable and designed to communicate seamlessly with the next generation of FPGAs, the Quantum engine is a uniquely formidable platform for an ambitious industry.

Under The Hood

Unlike the SD5, the Quantum 5 has over 450 processing paths at 96kHz. This includes 288 processing channels configurable as up to 256 input channels and up to 128 busses, plus a 36 x 36 matrix. The engine is also equipped with four redundant, or eight individual, MADI ports and two DMI slots (DiGiCo Multi-Channel Interface) for AoIP and other connectivity options from the complete family of DMI cards options, plus a built-in Waves port and up to two Optocore loops.

Quantum 5 hosts the world’s most flexible and feature-rich mixing experience right at your very fingertips. Across both inputs and outputs includes Channel Delay, DiGiTube, Single and Multi-Channel Presets, Dual insert points, Hi- and Lo-pass filters at 24dB/octave, four-band parametric EQ (eight on outputs) with band curve selection, and Dynamic EQ on each band, DiGiCo’s DYN 1 (Compressor, De-esser or Multiband Compressor) and DYN 2 (Gate, Compressor or Ducker).

Just like our other Quantum consoles, the Quantum 5 includes the legendary Mustard Processing. A fully integrated suite of additional processing that can be assigned to any strip to boost your mix with a range of modeled preamps, vintage dynamics units, and EQ sections, all only a touch away.

In addition, 128 busses are assignable as mono/stereo groups or auxiliaries, while a 36×36 output matrix, dual solo busses with True Solo, and an LR/LCR/5.1 Master buss are available for even deeper configurability.

Last but not least, with the inclusion of the now highly regarded Nodal Processing which allows monitor engineers unrivaled creativity on their IEM mixes, and of course True Solo to allow them to hear exactly as their artist does.

Last but not least, with the inclusion of patented Nodal Processing, engineers now enjoy more creativity than was previously possible – for the first time, processing can be applied to any node on the auxiliary section of the console, allowing engineers to send unique processing on each send from single or multiple channels.

Quantum 7 Features

  • There is an arm processor, which handles all the communications between the host PC and the FPGA core; it’s the translator that communicates all the worksurface flow to the core processor
  • There are now three fourth-generation SHARCS controlling the interpolation algorithms in the FPGA to produce that warm analog feel, which will make a significant difference to any engineer.
  • Nodal Processing: The patented Nodal Processing appreciates the demands on monitor engineers and sound designers to be able to provide creativity not only on the channels but actually on each node of an aux buss. A full complement of processing can be allocated to the send allowing a unique mix tailored for the artist or the audience.
  • True Solo: This allows the operator’s monitoring system to replicate almost any section of the console, and how that source is being processed and heard. This saves time and speeds up the process of managing the potentially daunting number of channels and busses available to the user.
