Overview

The Digidrive V2 is a fully featured loudspeaker management system featuring audiophile grade 24 bit A/D & D/A converters. Mixed mode architecture has also been implemented on the Digidrive V2 with the latest 64 bit processors powering each device. The combination of 64 bit processors and the highest grade converters has allowed for an unsurpassed bandwidth spanning from 5Hz to 45kHz with mastering studio levels of definition.

Up to six outputs can be derived from either input or a sum of the four inputs via matrix mixing, allowing any input to be mixed at any level to any output. Inputs A and B are analogue whilst inputs C and D are digital AES/EBU, and can accept any clock speed all the way up to 192kHz. All of the inputs and outputs feature high pass and low pass filters that can be set anywhere between 20Hz and 20kHz. A choice of Bessel, Butterworth, or Linkwitz-Riley filter types are available. The transparent sounding output limiters feature predictive attack with adjustable threshold and release to provide maximum protection to loudspeaker drive units, whilst a fully adjustable studio grade compressor can be applied to each input channel for even greater control. All input and output channels feature 10 bands of EQ with -12dB to +12dB of gain, and a full range of filter types including bell, notch, allpass, high shelf or low shelf. Each EQ can also be bypassed, allowing for instant comparison.

The Digidrive V2 can be connected to a PC via USB or its Ethernet connection for full external control via the supplied Live Link software. Each Digidrive can also be assigned its own IP address allowing multiple units to work on a network. A choice of five languages can be displayed for front panel editing.
