HARMAN’S Soundcraft and AKG Combine to Make Wireless Mic Monitoring in the Mixer a First

scraft_vm2.jpg

ORLANDO, Florida — Every engineer has been there. The radio mics check out fine on the RF Tech’s laptop, but that’s before the talent walks onto the stage. Reception black spots, drained batteries, accidental mutes–anything can happen once the show gets underway.

Thankfully, HARMAN’s Soundcraft and AKG now make the FOH engineer’s life easier. Now it’s possible for the first time to monitor the status of any HARMAN HiQnet™-compatible AKG radio mic directly from the Soundcraft Vi Series console surface, courtesy of VM2 (Vistonics Microphone Monitoring). VM2 provides real-time visual displays of battery life, RF status, mic muting and internal clipping directly on a channel strip on the Vistonics™ screen, so it’s possible to see a problem long before you hear it, right there on the relevant channel–with expanded information instantly available just by touching the screen.
