‘The software updates will increase the input channel and buss counts of each desk model’
USA - At NAMM 2024, DiGiCo announced that it will soon be offering second-generation software updates for its Quantum338, Quantum338T, and Quantum225 mixing consoles. Available in April for a nominal fee, the Mk 2 software packages, known as Pulse, will increase the input channel and buss counts of each desk model, plus add other notable features.
On the Quantum338 and Quantum338T, the new upgrade will increase the number of input channels to 156 (from 128), busses to 72 (from 64), Mustard Processors to 48 (from 36), and Nodal Processors to 72 (from 64). Other perks include the addition of Mix Minus functionality, plus a larger 36x36 Matrix on the ‘T’ theatre-software model of the console (up from 24x24).
Similarly, Pulse will bump up the Quantum225’s power and versatility, raising its input channel count to 96 (from 72), buss count to 48 (from 36), and Mustard and Nodal Processor tallies to 36 and 48, respectively (from 24 and 32). Mix Minus is also included in the new feature set.
“DiGiCo’s customer base is among the most loyal in the world, and we’re always seeking to reward them with the best possible product versatility and ROI,” says DiGiCo MD Austin Freshwater. “These new Pulse updates will truly keep our users’ Quantum Series consoles at the top of their game. And as a token of appreciation to our early adopters - especially during what has been a very challenging several years for us all - we’re offering a 50 percent discount on the new software if their Quantum338 or Quantum225 was purchased in 2023 or earlier. It’s our way of expressing our gratitude for their continued support and commitment to the DiGiCo brand.”
To qualify for the discount, the Pulse software upgrade must be purchased before the end of 2024.
DiGiCo further announced that it will simultaneously offer Mk 2 software updates for its Quantum7 and Quantum5 consoles free of charge adding Mix Minus to the desks and increasing the number of Mustard Processors on the Quantum7 to 80 (from 64) and to 64 (from 48) on the Quantum5.
