Based on the principles of the dbx Zone Processing products, the SC 32 Digital Matrix Processor is the new flagship product for Digital Matrix Processing. Wizard driven configuration using HiQnet System Architect™ makes unprecedented DSP power, incredible routing flexibility and a rich palette of processing tools accessible with the minimum of training. The SC 32 represents the professional choice of foundation on which to build even the most demanding integrated system.

The SC 32 has a total analog I/O count of 32, configurable in banks of eight. The chassis supports up to 4 analog input and/or analog output cards facilitating 5 different fully loaded configurations. Analog input cards accommodate a wide range of sources with mic/line switching and phantom power per input. A High Speed Option slot provides facility for adding forthcoming high bandwidth audio transport I/O cards. All of these features are housed in a sleek 2U rack chassis.

With dedicated DSP for common processing functions and insert positions for specialized processing, the SC 32 offers many processing functions including Advanced Feedback Suppression (AFS), Ambient Noise Compensation (ANC), priority ducking, parametric equalization (PEQ), delay and dynamics. The SC 32 has a diverse range of control options including HiQnet System Architect™ custom control panels, Ethernet, serial, contact closure, the popular ZC wall controllers and even automatically scheduled events. With so many methods of control, an SC system can truly be tailored to suit the needs and technical expertise of even the scrutinizing contractor.
