Hob Sound Adds HARMAN Soundcraft Si Expression To Its One-Man Show

FRAMINGHAM, Massachusetts – Rob Bernstein, the sole owner of Hob Sound, recently purchased a HARMAN Soundcraft Si Expression 2 to accommodate his production and mixing needs. As a one-man business that provides sound equipment for a wide range of events, Bernstein requires an equally versatile console to match his needs.

The Soundcraft Si Expression console is the complete solution for all of Bernstein’s mixing requirements. Versatility is an understatement when it comes to this digital board with recallable features and analog-type controls. In addition, the Si Expression Series comes with GEQ effects on every bus as well as built-in Lexicon effects.

Within 15 minutes of working with the Si Expression, Bernstein was amazed at the quality of the console. “Its versatility blows anything else out of the water,” he said. “Having the graphic EQ’s available to all the buses is a huge advantage, and combined with the availability of compressors on each channel, this console replaces a lot of gear. This is critical to my operation, since I cannot haul all those additional racks by myself.”

The Soundcraft Si Expression comes with tons of features that make it easy to use and convenient to set up, which is highly appealing to sound engineers managing multiple events. ‘1 Control = 1 Function’ ensures that there is never any layering of controls. The One Touch Easy Mix (TOTEM) allows a single key to mix to an AUX, FX or Matrix bus. The Si Expression also features FaderGlow™ color-coded illuminated faders and a range of connectivity and network cards. It combines the utility of a digital console with the simplicity of an analog one.

“I love how much faster it is to set up for an event, due to the recallable features,” Bernstein added. “Even though this is my first digital board, it retains the simple feel and authentic sound of an analog board that I have grown accustomed to in my decades of experience. Also, I no longer have to worry about choosing which channel gets compressed or gated.”

Hob Sound recently mixed a show with the local band The Fools in the Boston area. “The Si Expression sounded great, and it is everything that I need from a console,” according to Bernstein.

The Si Expression 2 console was purchased through Pro Audio Star (www.proaudiostar.com).
