FRANKFURT, Germany – HARMAN’s Soundcraft is hosting its popular “Mixing with Professionals” (MwP) training sessions at Prolight & Sound 2014 in Frankfurt. The sessions will offer formal training and demonstrations on Soundcraft’s Si Expression range and the groundbreaking new Vi3000 digital live sound console.
“We trained around 2,000 engineers over the past year on the Expression range as well as Vi and know the Vi3000 especially will draw lots of interest at the show,” said Keith Watson, Marketing Director, Soundcraft Studer & AKG, HARMAN Professional. “The MwP sessions offer a great opportunity to get hands-on experience with industry experienced engineers on hand to help and provide tips of the trade, everyone is welcome to join a session.”
The ‘all-in-one-box’ Soundcraft Vi3000 digital live sound console offers a host of state-of-the-art features, a new industrial design, 96 channels to mix, and onboard Dante. The Vi3000 uses the new internal SoundcraftA® SpiderCore DSP based on sister company Studer’s Vista 1 engine, with Soundcraft’s Vi Version 4.8 operating software offering the new ‘3D’ Vistonicsâ„¢ user interface, while adding a fourth 24-channel fader layer to improve access to the console’s 96 input channels. The surface operation and layout is similar to other Vi Series consoles, providing a familiar feel while offering expanded functionality. The Vi3000 also features upgraded microphone preamps and 40-bit Floating Point DSP processing for superlative sound quality.
