CADAC QUOTES :
QUOTE by Thomas Vingtrinier, Studio Sequenza, Paris. www.sequenza.fr :
"If I had to describe further what the CADAC console is about for me, I would say it offers the perfect balance between an open / detailed sound and the analogue warmth and fullness of classic consoles from the 80’s. . Studio Sequenza own 2 consoles, a Neve 8232 and a Cadac A Series.

This is our last E Series for a while, the full console comprises a 19 into 24 main frame plus a 15 channel side car plus a full GPO B Gauge patchbay, total 34 inputs. The E Series was designed as a very high quality theatre console however it is very well suited for working with a DAW system providing excellent sound source using the superior mic amps.
Many owners of 70’s & 80’s Cadac consoles would place them above Neve consoles of the same era, they are extremely well made and provide a high quality audio source for your DAW plus superb analogue summing.
E Series is very similar to the A Series but with these additional Features :
1/. Extra Groups. The 34 channel desk has routing to 24 groups .
2/. Same Sub-Group - Main Group structure as the A series but the channels can also be routed directly to the Main Groups and well as the Sub Groups ( the A Series can only route to the Sub Groups )
3/. VCA Sub-grouping with 9 VCA masters, use of the VCA's is optional as the faders have bypass switches if you prefer not to use the VCA's
4/. 4 additional Mic Pre-Amps - mic pre's on all 19 input channels in ther main desk plus 15 Mic pre's in the sidecar.
5/. Sends to an Extra pair of control room monitors or foldback mixes, total 6 stereo sends.
6/ Pre - Post fader switching on channel direct outputs.
7/. Inject into sub groups with on/off and level controls, these can be used to play monitor mixes from your DAW, or any other device, into the subgroups without using up any input channels. ( Extra cabling required for this facility )
8/. Additional aux sends, 1 – 5 Mono, aux sends Aux 6 is also mono but with 2 outputs on separate faders - 6a & 6b outputs, aux’s 7&8 stereo pair with rotary pot on each output. Sub Groups 11& 12 can also serve as additional aux busses
9/. Subs to main outputs on pots, not presets, much easier to use.
