Soundcraft Vi4 Digital Console Provides Freight And Salvage With A Foundation For Musical Success

As a non-profit organization with a mission to foster musical success around Berkeley, California, Freight and Salvage Coffee House has hosted a wide range of musical performances for more than 40 years. When it moved to a new facility at the beginning of the year, it needed a state-of-the-art audio system that had the flexibility to handle anything from rock and roll to soft acoustical shows, which is why the venue opted for the Soundcraft Vi4 digital console.

Located in the heart of Berkeley since 1968, Freight and Salvage had been in the same building since opening its doors. When the decision to move was made at the beginning of the year, it needed to find a building that could provide a large auditorium for concerts, but also contain smaller rooms for its expanding educational program. Freight and Salvage relocated to an old building that was renovated to look more

Daktronics recently completed an installation at the Allen Event Center in Allen, Texas, using 25 JBL AM4215/95 loudspeakers placed every 30 feet to deliver even sound throughout the bowl seating area.

Taking advantage of the power of Crown’s I-Tech HD series amplifiers and flexibility of the Studer Vista 5SR console, California-based Sound Image deployed 80 I-Tech HD amplifiers and a Studer Vista 5SR for use on country music star Taylor Swift’s tour throughout North America.

Radio-Canada Acadie Takes To The Air With Studer Vista 5

In the first use of a Studer Vista 5 console in a CBC/Radio-Canada facility, Radio-Canada Acadie with main studios located in Moncton, New Brunswick recently purchased a Vista 5 for its television studio. Sold through Solotech Inc., the Vista 5 console features 32 faders in a 42-fader chassis.

When deciding on a console, Radio-Canada Acadie needed one that could operate daily without fail. “The Vista 5 is used seven days a week,? says Maurice Cyr, operations manager for Radio-Canada Acadie. “We have only one studio, one control room and one Vista 5, so the console must be dependable and perform well, day in and day out. If it fails, we can’t go to air since we have no backup or replacement available in our plant. Our operations dictate that we have an audio control board that is trustworthy, and so far the Vista 5 has not let us more

Soundcraft Vi6 Making News In Perth

The guys at Channel 7 Perth’s news control room have put their aging Euphonix 2000 mixing console to rest, replacing it with a Soundcraft Vi6 large-format digital live desk.

“We had a thorough look at the market and I have to admit that originally I really wanted a Studer Vista 5 console, but it wasn’t within our budget,? confessed Colin Graham, primary operator of the Vi6. “However in my researching I came across the Soundcraft Vi6 console and realised that it was really a Vista 5 without as much fruit, and the fruit that it was missing wasn’t what I was interested in anyway!.?

Graeme Pennifold, Channel Seven’s Engineering Manager, states that there were other contenders but that they very soon focused on the Studer from an operational view.

?We liked the Vistonics control on the Studer, in fact that’s what really sold us, but we were more
