Product Details
Digidesign Eleven Rack Guitar Multi Effects Processor
Digidesign's Eleven Rack is a revolutionary guitar recording system designed to solve the challenges guitarists face in the studio. Eleven Rack uses a unique tone cloning design and one-of-a-kind, custom-designed True-Z input to re-create the experience of playing through a mic'd amp. By combining studio-standard Pro Tools software with a DSP-accelerated high-resolution interface, Eleven Rack puts professional recording into the hands of every guitar player. Whether you're tracking in the studio or playing on stage, this rackmountable multi-effects processor delivers fresh, mind-blowing, hyper-realistic guitar amp and effects tones that will inspire your best performances.

Digidesign Eleven Rack in the Studio

Eleven Rack combines studio-standard Pro Tools software with a high-resolution, dual DSP-powered audio interface, so you'll never have to worry about latency when recording, thanks to its built-in amp/effects tones, nor will your computer have to carry the processing burden. Additionally, Eleven Rack takes re-amping to the next level by recording both dry and processed guitar signals simultaneously, allowing you to re-amplify later without patching a single cable. Digidesign even found a way to embed the Eleven Rack amp and effects settings into the audio tracks you record, enabling you to automatically recall those settings from your audio files on any Pro Tools system with the Eleven Rack.

Digidesign Eleven Rack On Stage

Eleven Rack also rocks onstage as a standalone amp tone and effects signal processor. Digidesign pulled out all the stops to make sure it sounds and feels just like playing through the real deal. The guitar effects processor comes with a classic collection of guitar effects, from must-have stompboxes to world-class rackmount studio processors. Eleven Rack has all the I/O flexibility you need to integrate it into your existing rig, and easily incorporate the tones you've recorded with into your live setup—closing the gap between studio and stage. Eleven Rack rackmount processor also offers incredibly powerful control options using affordable MIDI controllers and expression pedals, giving you full foot control over everything from vintage wah effects to tempo-driven delays and more.

That would be insane. $164 for an 8 channel LE interface with AES/EBU and reamping modes built it!

Sounds cool

if you try and by it, it gives you two options for a gold schilke mouthpiece. I tried...Prices like that would put Behringer out of business...

So another bizzare product release that the majority of LE users couldn't give half a sh!t about. Cool.

If you have a MacPro of any variety, you can already record with Eleven, and almost non-existent latency. I do it everyday.
So who is this thing for?

That being said, this is interesting:

So, how many Eleven tracks/instances will it power at once? That would be great to know. If it's not infinite, who cares.......

Yes. Infinite.

OR, give us ADC/PDC for LE.......

Either one of those things. Seems like the latter would have been easier, and hit the mark. but, eh......

I suppose it may be useful in a live rig. But not for me....

Curious to see how it manages to have eight recording inputs.

1 guitar input
1 mic input (XLR with phantom)
2 line level inputs "for keyboards"
2 digital inputs -- S/PDIF and AES/EBU — as a rule, devices support one or the other for input, not both at the same time.

I wonder if "2 line level inputs" actually means 2 stereo line-level inputs. Guess we'll see in a day or two.

I'm guessing that it has both a S/PDIF port and AES/EBU that are independent... so perhaps 4 of those input channels are via digital? That would actually be sort of sweet. I'd rather have 8, but 4 for a USB Digi interface is not too shabby.

I was all excited for a second, but then I realized that the DSP accelerated performance is nothing but the "low latency monitoring" from 003...oh well...

well sign of things to come

I reckon this is the best way for avid to go, accelerated dsp boxes for the LE range, leave HD as it is bundle customized DSP plugs similar to UAD BUT more restricted this way they dont devalue HD. E.G a massive DSP rack with bundles 1, 2 , 3 if you want to pick and choose get HD for everything else choose your rack or buy them all. price it at about $500 a rack like a really nice multieffects except with accelerated DSP boxes. To add to it allow it to also run on HD if needed be, they will compete with UAD who are doing a damn great job. Also allow this box to run standalone or with other DAWs to get digi plugs working with it as well.

On board DSP is a step in the right direction for LE users. It opens the door for the next possibility.

I think the writing is already on the wall at Digidesign about ADC. I have a really strong feeling that a new version is around the corner.... cough cough NAB in April cough cough.

From audiomidi newsletter:

"Digi's Eleven Rack guitar amp/effect simulator is a two-rack space standalone unit with custom designed True-Z input to accurately replicate the mic'd amp experience. Eleven's dual DSP-powered audio interface lets guitarists rock out with zero-latency, and offers stunning emulations of ten classic guitar amps, seven cabs, seven mics and 16 effects. Plus Eleven lets guitarists record dry guitar signal and amp-modeled tone simultaneously for reamping later on."

No price mention so far and yes, it's supposed to come with LE.

Looks like it's selling for $899 and there's no mention of any "gold" or "standard" models...which didn't really make sense anyhow...

rotary encoders, external DSP. i actually like the look of this. i have no use for it but being an LE user the future looks to be betting brighter.

as usual no ones actually heard it and everyone hates it already.

digidesign LE hardware is known to be pretty garbage. I wonder how this thing will be. I use the mbox and 002 as a dongle and use external converters and pres because they are so terrible. I like that it has aes in though. thats awesome. I wonder if the onboard dsp will eventually be used with protools for mixing.
