In his recent Review of the DiGiGrid D Pro Tools Expert team member Julian Rodgers was delighted with the performance of the mic preamps, which offer 70dB of clean gain and unlike similarly equipped thunderbolt or USB interfaces, the DiGiGrid interfaces can be networked together to build as big a Soundgrid network as you need. With the addition of an IOS or DLS server the Soundgrid network can add hardware accelerated plug-ins.
Free Tutorial - Using SoundGrid Studio To Route Audio Between A DiGiGrid D And Two Computers
In this free video tutorial, Pro Tools Expert team member Julian Rodgers uses SoundGrid Studio, the software used to configure and control SoundGrid AoIP networks to route audio between a DiGiGrid D networkable audio interface, a host Mac running Pro Tools and a MacBook Pro outputting browser audio across the network and into Pro Tools.
Full Bandwidth, Low Latency
Unlike most conventional USB, Firewire or Thunderbolt audio interfaces, networkable IO boxes like the DiGiGrid D remain useful as your networked system grows, if you want to add additional IO then the D remains a fully functioning part of your network. Any of the Native or Pro Tools Rackmount interfaces and servers from the DiGiGrid Range such as the IOS are fully compatible and can populate the same network and the addition of any of the hardware servers in the range allow HDX-like plug-in use with minimal latency and no strain on the host computer via the Waves Studiorack plug-in host.

In his recent review, Julian said that he saw the D as a very significant product in DiGiGrid’s current product lineup because it fulfils at least two very important roles:
"To a new SoundGrid User it is the most sensible point of entry. I could only have one, it would be this one. it offers an adequate complement of I/O to be useful along with headphone and monitor control. You might think it’s expensive compared to a conventional USB/Thunderbolt interface (it currently lists at a bit more than £650) but that would be misunderstanding this product. It is the first part of an expandable system which will grow with your needs and it is of high enough quality to remain useful irrespective of how your system and your expectations grow".
"The other user I have in mind is someone who is heavily invested in Waves/SoundGrid plug-ins and wants a control room interface to offer some local IO and monitor control to go with their IOS/DLS servers and any IOX, IOC and MADI hardware they may have, for this the D neatly fills a gap in the lineup".

Other DiGiGrid Desktop Products
The D is the natural first choice from the Desktop line as it offers the most direct replacement for a conventional USB, Firewire or Thunderbolt interface. The other products in the desktop line offer additional "network nodes". Small, networkable I/O boxes which provide just enough I/O for individual musicians. As your needs grow, so can your system.
