Soundcraft Announces Processing Update to Soundcraft Vi6 Digital Console
March 15, 2007
U.K.-based Soundcraft, part of the Harman Pro Group will introduce a new processing card for the Soundcraft Vi6 at NAB2007, bringing Lexicon effects and BSS Audio equalization to the digital console.
The new card uses eight custom Lexicon DSP engines to provide eight mono or stereo effects units, which may be patched to aux bus outputs and then back into a channel input, or inserted into input or output channels. Additional flexibility comes from the ability to control these effects via the desk's Vistonics II screens, which give the engineer an intuitive graphical user interface.
The Lexicon devices offer a choice of 14 types of reverb, including various plates, halls and spring types, seven delay settings (including ping-pong and tape delays), plus eight other effects including chorus, flanger, tremolo and pitch shift.
The new card also provides a 30-band graphic EQ on every output, controlled by the first 30 channel faders once the output graphic EQ icon is pressed. The Soundcraft FaderGlow system now changes the faders to red, and each fader controls one of the 30 frequencies, which are shown in the channel label display.
Soundcraft will be in booth N7715.
