Soundcraft Unveils New Mid-price Digital Console – More Inputs, More Technology, and a True Analogue Feel

si3_console.jpgSoundcraft® Si3 promises to deliver more for less than any other.

Currently riding high with tours and engineers thanks to the incredible success of the Vi Series digital consoles, Soundcraft has launched a mid-market partner console in the Soundcraft Si3. This new desk is designed for live use on both touring sound systems and in fixed installations and its intuitive operation and high input and bus count makes it a perfect choice for House of Worship sound systems. Theatre users will also find the Soundcraft Si3 very applicable in their area.

What is particularly nice about the Si3 is it all comes in one chassis – console surface, all input and output connections, power supply – so it can literally drop in and replace an existing analogue desk as almost certainly no additional cabling would be required to install it. This compact footprint desk can directly handle 64 mono inputs, 4 stereo inputs and has full connectivity for all 35 output busses (24 Aux/Group, 8 Matrix and Left/Right/Centre mix buses), something you don’t find often on digital consoles at the price level of the Si3. Add to this 4 Lexicon® effects processors, 12 VCA groups, 8 Mute groups and bar graph metering for all 35 bus outputs and you begin to see what a package the Si3 is. more

ONCE YOU USE DANLEY YOU’LL NEVER GO BACK

ga_public_brdcast_1.JPGATLANTA, GEORGIA – AUGUST 2008: Despite the cliché of programs burdened by stodgy talking heads droning on about highfalutin subjects, the bulk of programs aired by PBS use engaging, colorful formats to educate and entertain about compelling subjects. Nevertheless, no previous program has approached the raw and visceral intensity of PBS’s ten part miniseries, “Carrier.” A documentary of life aboard the USS Nimitz, a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, the show balances the real life struggles and triumphs of the 5000-plus sailors who spend their every moment on the ship with enough roaring take-offs and high technology to have viewers with bona fide home theaters rumbling in their seats! As “Carrier” is the very first program produced by PBS in 5.1 surround sound, Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB) revamped their soundstage with a full complement of musically accurate and high SPL Danley loudspeakers and subwoofers. This improved soundstage was used to preview the first two episodes of “Carrier” for the show’s producers, the upper management at PBS, and the station’s highest-tier donors. more
