Little Red Box: Expanding SD9 and SD11 Connectivity
A single D-Rack only allows you to connect to one SD9 (or SD11), with no way of sharing the rack. Little Red Box, however, will allow you to plug in your D-Rack, main console and a secondary console.
The main console controls all gains, as well as outputs on the rack, whilst the secondary console acts as a 'receive only' module for the inputs, allowing you to share a rack and operate either Front of House or monitors.
DiGiCo's gain tracking system can be activated when required.
The handy 'SPLIT MADI' switch allows you to decide if you want to split a D-Rack or one of DiGiCo’s other racks. On an SD9 (or SD11), this connector is usually limited to 32 inputs and 16 outputs. By connecting a DiGi-Rack it allows all 56 I/O to run and is therefore a great way of expanding the I/O capabilities of an SD9 (or SD11).
The Little Red Box is powered via USB, with a second USB port acting as a 'thru', meaning there is no loss of available connections.
