[MUSIKMESSE] Soundcraft Vi2000
Soundcraft presents the Vi2000, the most compact version in the brand's Vi series of digital consoles.
According to Soundcraft, the Vi2000 reinvents the small format digital console with an ultra-compact implementation of the same control surface layout and workflow as its larger Vi siblings. Featuring 96 inputs to mix, 24 mono/stereo busses and the same SpiderCore built-in DSP and I/O engine as the Vi3000, the console can also be used with remote I/O via the double option card slots and an optional Stagebox.
