Soundcraft has released several new products and upgrades to its RM1d digital radio console family.

The RM1d--a dual-purpose console for production and on-air studios--is now joined by the RM1ds, which includes start and stop functions for each channel, as well as front panel and control menu labeling more in line with the terminology used on such dedicated consoles. The RM1d family features an all-digital processing path with assignable input selection from analog mic/line, S/PDIF, TDIF and AES/EBU sources. The two models each have integrated dynamics processing and Lexicon effects, cue speaker and dual timers; users can store and recall up to 128 console presets of desk settings. Both the RM1d and RM1ds are available in 6- and 12-fader formats, with optional script tray frames.

New to both the RM1d and RM1ds is integration with RCS Master Control, the on-air digital audio system. Using a 4-channel stereo TDIF audio interface (analog interfacing is also possible) and an RS-232 control interface, the desks indicate which channel is handling the currently playing track and which channel will cue the next track using the LED in the channel-on buttons.

Soundcraft has also announced the release of Version 3 operating software for the RM1d, which provides additional functionality for the console. The new software includes password lockout facilities so that unauthorized changes to the console setup are not possible. Additions to the control surface include new menus for setup, dynamics and Lexicon effects. A variable highpass filter function is also included.

Existing RM1d users can contact Soundcraft through its Website ( for information on upgrading to V. 3 software, which is available free of charge.
