Soundcraft unveils Vi6 digital audio console


The new Vi6 features a touch-screen color TFT monitor with integral rotary controls and switches mounted on the glass.

Soundcraft has announced that its first large-format digital live sound console, the Soundcraft Vi6, which will begin shipping next month.

A joint development with sister console company Studer, the Vi6 uses a user interface based on the Vistonics touch-screen color TFT monitor, with integral rotary controls and switches mounted on the glass.

It features an input-to-mix capacity of 64 channels mapped out on two layers under the control of 32 motorized faders. These can be assigned to 32 outputs (plus a stereo and mono mix) that can be any combination of group and aux buses. Up to 16 matrix outputs can be configured from the pool of 32 buses.

Every channel strip has all of its functions simultaneously on display. Selection of channel function is by touching the required element on-screen, then adjusting the controls and switches to implement changes.

Inputs from mics and instruments route to a stagebox containing all the connectivity for I/O, and then connect down a CAT 5 cable over a MADI link to the local DSP rack, which sits with the console surface.
