CMI Communications Strengthens Lineup With HARMAN’s Soundcraft® Si Compact Digital Consoles

ROCHESTER, New York — Adding to its inventory of HARMAN’s Soundcraft® consoles that already includes a Vi1™ and Vi6™, Rochester, New York-based CMI Communications recently purchased Soundcraft Si Compact 16 and Si Compact 24 models, giving the company all the digital Soundcraft features it is so fond of at a great price.

CMI Communications is an AV rental and production facility that works with a range of Fortune 500 companies and international and national associations for many special events.

“After having the chance to use the Soundcraft Vi6, we were hooked on Soundcraft,” stated Dan Lamphier, Event Manager at CMI Communications. “We wanted to stay with the Soundcraft brand and continue to build our inventory around HARMAN products. The simplicity of use and the way the interface is developed makes a lot of sense to an analog user, making the transition to digital easy and allowing many different operators to use the board.”

Lamphier explained the transition to the digital age has allowed CMI Communications to spend less time working on analog issues and connections, enabling them to focus on mixing the events. “It’s great to use the desk for its intended purpose rather than worrying about troubleshooting. It’s easy to set up and be ready to go immediately,” he said.

For a small footprint, the Si Compact consoles provide a great amount of functionality, which is perfect for high-end events that don’t have space for a large board. “It fits into any venue and any situation,” Lamphier stated. “It provides a tremendous amount of value; wherever we take it, everyone is always extremely happy.”

CMI Communications often uses the Si Compact consoles in conjunction with the Vi series stage boxes. “It’s perfect to get even more use out of the board and really opens up our repertoire and capabilities to serve different clients,” Lamphier added.

Many of the features of the Si Compact help to make the work easier and smoother for whoever is using the board. “The acoustic delay and graphic EQ are great. Changing settings is straightforward and fast, adding to the overall simplicity of the console. The ability to use fiber optics along with the MADI card slot make it easy to connect the board universally,” Lamphier noted.

“We have really become a big advocate for HARMAN based on the success and design of their products, as well as the support and service,” Lamphier expressed. “The Soundcraft Si Compacts are perfect for what we needed and fit right into our wheelhouse with the products we already carry.”
