The D-8EX incorporates an incredible amount of functionality. Up to 32 channels of mix-minus / N-1 outputs, surround panning, and per-channel delay are just a few of the functions rarely found in consoles at this price. This console also includes an intuitive touchscreen for metering and for lesser used, set-and-forget controls.
A PAGE button on each channel of the D-8EX lets you access a second channel with full, immediate recall of that channel's settings, bringing the total number of channels to 48. The D-8EX features 24 motorized input faders, true surround, four submasters, two main busses, two AUX sends, and extensive processing: 4-band parametric EQ, filters, compressor/limiter, and de-esser.
Like other Wheatstone television consoles, the D-8EX is a control surface; all audio I/O is housed in the Wheatstone WheatNet-IP audio network.

IP Audio Networks: Planning for Reliability A white paper by Andrew Calvanese, VP Engineering, Wheatstone Corporation
WheatNet-IP brings added convenience and simplicity to the configuration of a PC- based automation system such as RCS Zetta. Where once it was necessary to employ a specialized sound card, discrete analog or digital audio wiring, a logic interface, and control cabling, with WheatNet-IP’s PC Driver, we can accomplish all of this over a single Ethernet cable. The driver effectively acts as a WheatNet-IP BLADE, and lets the PC enjoy full access to all aspects of the WheatNet-IP intelligent network. The driver is available in versions that offer one, four, eight, twelve, and twenty-four stereo input and output channels. For situations where discrete outputs from Zetta players are desired, we recommend at least the four-channel version of the driver.
