A D-Show-style Digital Console for Smaller Venues

Want the sound and functionality of your VENUE system but can't justify bringing it to smaller venues? Digidesign's compact D-Show Profile is the answer. This compact mixing console is fully compatible with all existing VENUE hardware components, delivering power in a compact form for small- to mid-size environments and applications (such as houses of worship, corporate events, theaters, mid-size concert venues, and remote broadcasts) with the exact same sound quality, reliability, and flexibility for which VENUE has come to be known. Owners of Digidesigns VENUE system can purchase just the D-Show Profile console for use with existing FOH and Stage Racks.

Digidesign D-Show Profile at a Glance:
  • Compact footprint allows D-Show Profile to fit in small venues
  • Fully compatible with D-Show software and VENUE hardware
  • D-Show Profile can send or respond to external equipment
  • Newly designed software enhancements improve workflow
Compact Form Factor

The console's compact footprint allows D-Show Profile to fit into venues where space is a challenge without compromising the power, sound quality, and flexibility for which VENUE has become known. And if you're a current VENUE user, D-Show Profile provides a smaller mixing alternative that works with your existing system, allowing you to expand your business into new applications.

Fully Compatible with D-Show

D-Show and D-Show Profile operate on the same D-Show control software and operating system. Engineers can create and load show files for use on either console without experiencing compatibility issues when moving files from one mixing console to another. Best of all, you won't need to learn new software if you're already familiar with D-Show, or build new show files when you switch consoles.

D-Show Profile takes full advantage of existing Stage and FOH racks, and allows you to connect your VENUE system to Pro Tools|HD and Pro Tools LE systems via an additional hardware option for recording and playback. Rental companies needn't fear product obsolescence as needs grow, but can simply add another mixing console to their current arsenal. No need to change existing workflows and system designs.

Expanded Show Control Options

D-Show Profile offers expanded show control options with the new General Purpose Interface (GPI). Through eight GPI inputs and eight outputs, D-Show Profile can send or respond to external equipment via simple switch closures. Used in conjunction with the new Event List feature in D-Show 2.5, you can build and customize extensive macros that enable the console to perform multiple functions with a single button push, footswitch press or fader movement.

D-Show 2.5 Software

With D-Show Profile operating under easy-to-use D-Show 2.5 software, you have instant access and full control over any function of the system. D-Show 2.5 software also features newly designed workflow enhancements, such as the powerful Event List, enhanced Matrix and PQ input assignments, and expanded snapshots and library management.

  • The console features high-quality, touch-sensitive, 100-mm faders that can be selectively assigned as master controls for auxes, stereo (PQ) matrixes, mono matrices, subgroups, and VCA masters.
  • The Master/Global section houses controls for the main left, right,
  • and center/mono buses. All headphone and near-fi eld monitor controls are located near all solo status selections. Dedicated two-track, talkback, and noise sources-plus eight programmable mute
  • groups-are also available.
  • The meter bridge offers a high-resolution display of the left, right, and center mono output levels, plus eight assignable output meters to display aux, stereo (PQ) matrix, mono matrix, and subgroup output levels. Additionally, the bridge provides high-resolution meters for ACS targeted inputs, which include independent meters for compressor and gate gain reduction displays.
