Horne Audio, Inc. Delivers Unforgettable Experience With HARMAN Soundcraft Si Compact 16 Digital Mixing Console

PORTLAND, Oregon — With music in the air and hundreds of revelers dressed in “steampunk”-themed costumes, Horne Audio, Inc. provided a HARMAN Soundcraft Si Compact 16 digital mixing console for a unique event dubbed “The Music Experience” in Portland, Oregon. Intel and MTV Iggy hosted the event, which took place on the Sternwheeler steamboat and featured performances by bands The Jezabels and Y La Bamba as the vessel cruised the Willamette River.

Horne Audio set up the Si Compact 16 on the second of the Sternwheeler’s three decks, as the performances alternated between two levels. Audio engineer Jim Schamberg of Horne Audio ran 16 inputs with one feed coming from the system on the boat’s upper deck and one feed running from the Si Compact 16 to the upper deck, so the live performances could be heard throughout the boat.

“The Si Compact has been a terrific board for us,” Schamberg said. “The effects are great and it’s compact but versatile. Fourteen busses for this size board is also a tremendous advantage. We’re able to easily transport the console for a range of different events.”

Based in Portland, Horne Audio, Inc. specializes in live sound reinforcement for a diverse variety of events ranging from intimate audiences to large-scale productions at major venues throughout the Pacific Northwest. Founded in 1999, the company has developed a strong reputation for quality service, maintaining a state-of-the-art equipment inventory and employing dedicated experienced professionals.

“The console worked great tonight, it’s really perfect for this size of an event,” Schamberg noted. “We have more than enough channels and the sound is excellent.”
