The Cadac CDC five with its 48 input channels and 24 assignable busses, is the latest addition to the Cadac digital console line. The compact CDC five gives sound engineers access to Cadac’s unique user experience and legendary audio performance at a very competitive price point. Based on an evolution of Cadac’s ‘high agility’ operating system, the CDC five has all the benefits of an intuitive operating system and faster work flow all on a single 23.5” screen. The new CDC five follows the same form factor and user interface as the CDC six and CDC seven-s. The most noticeable difference between the CDC five and its larger siblings is the lack of a stand alone 6.5” screen. The GUI of this control screen can be accessed with a swipe down action on the large 23.5” (or via a hard button to the left of the screen). There are also a number of hard buttons to the left of the screen to aid navigation when this screen is in use.
