Soundcraft is now offering a Vi Series control surface for applications where space is very tight.
The Soundcraft Vi2 is equipped with one channel section of eight input faders, and the master section which holds 8 faders. The Vi2 can handle as many inputs as a Vi4 or Vi6 (72 and 96 channels, respectively) using the standard stagebox and local rack hardware, with access to eight inputs at a time on the channel bay. By touching the input meters on the Vistonics screen of the master section, control of those inputs is brought onto the channel faders, along with all the channel functionality such as EQ, auxes, groups etc.
In addition to the meter selection, three customizable layouts of the eight input faders are available via the new user-defined fader page feature that is part of the V4.0 software update for all Vi consoles.
All the usual processing is accessible via the Local Rack, and even the 30-band graphic EQ's are available, the company says, by using a new paging system, accessed via the eight output section faders and included in the new V4.0 Vi software for Vi4 and Vi6.
