A complete standalone console package with 32 channels of analogue inputs

A complete standalone console package with 32 channels of analogue input to 27 analogue outputs, plus 6 digital inputs, 4 Stereo FX Returns and 6 digital outputs in one chassis. As standard, Input to mix capacity is 46chs, but by adding a stagebox (compatible with the existing Vi racks), simultaneous channel count increases to 64. Channels are routable to 24 multifunction busses, plus LR and Mono Mix busses. 

With the Soundcraft Vi Series now firmly established as a firm favourite digital desk on both the touring, broadcast and installed sound scenes, Soundcraft have taken this amazing platform to another, more affordable level with the release of the new Vi1 console.

Many users have asked for a smaller, lower-priced desk that still has the acclaimed VistonicsTM user interface, and of course the now-legendary optimal sound quality established with the Vi Series.

So here it is, the Soundcraft Vi1™.

A complete standalone console package with 32 channels of analogue input to 27 analogue outputs, plus 6 digital inputs, 4 Stereo FX Returns and 6 digital outputs in one chassis. As standard, Input to mix capacity is 46chs, but by adding a stagebox (compatible with the existing Vi racks), simultaneous channel count increases to 64. Channels are routable to 24 multifunction busses, plus LR and Mono Mix busses.

Up to 8 of the busses can be configured as Matrix mixes, each with up to 16 sources.

The surface is just over a metre wide, and includes 16 motorised channel faders with fixed and user-definable layers, 8 output/VCA faders and 2 master faders.

What's really cool about the Vi1 though, is the new Widescreen Vistonics interface, which will be instantly familiar to anyone who's driven a Vi6 or Vi4, as well as retaining the same 'walk-up' user-friendliness of the other Vi consoles. This new development displays all parameters for 16 channels side by side, on a single 22" Vistonics touch screen. The upper half of the screen handles the Output section control as well as Cue List or Menu displays. Parameter control is via two rows of 16 rotary encoders. Exactly the same channel functionality as the Vi6 and Vi4 is available here, along with all the same core snapshot, talkback and monitoring facilities.

Naturally, the Vi1 inherits many of the facilities of its larger siblings, including Soundcraft FaderGlow™, 4 stereo Lexicon effects engines, BSS Audio graphic EQs on all output busses, and integral dynamics on all channels. The desk is also compatible with Vi2, 4 and 6 show files.

As you’d expect, the price of the Vi1 is extremely attractive, which is sure to make it a clear winner with engineers and sound companies.

Features

Audio Channels

Max number of simultaneous mixing channels

64 mono inputs into 27 mix busses.

Pairs of mono inputs can be linked to create stereo channels.

Insert points

24 insert send/return pairs can be configured (using available I/O) and assigned to any of the 64 inputs or 27 output channels

Direct Outputs

All 32 input channels on the Vi1 can have direct outputs in addition to their internal bus routing, assuming sufficient I/O is available (eg via 64ch optical MADI card, see below)

Busses

24 Grp/Aux/Matrix*, plus main LCR Mix and LR Solo busses.

* a maximum of 8 matrix outputs can be configured.

Control Surface

Inputs

16 input faders, switchable in 4 fixed and 5 configurable layers to access 64 inputs

Widescreen Vistonics™ channel strip interface x controlling 16 input channels at a time.

Fader tray contains motorised faders, Mute, Solo, Isolate and F (user defined) switches, plus one assignable rotary encoder with LED display ring. This encoder is globally assignable to Gain, Pan, Gate Threshold, or one of 2 user-definable parameters.

Input level and gain reduction meters are located above each fader.

Input faders can be assigned to the 8 VCA (control group) masters and/or 4 Mute Groups.

Input faders can be switched to control all 24 Grp/Aux/Matrix Outputs, or can control an individual Aux send mix, using the switchable ‘Follow Solo’ function. Soundcraft FaderGlow™ clearly indicates using colours when faders are not controlling inputs.

Outputs

8 assignable Output faders, plus dedicated LR and C Master faders, plus 16 assignable rotary Output faders. Output faders are colour-coded using Soundcraft FaderGlow. Outputs, plus snapshot Cue List and diagnostics info display.

Misc

Gang mode for temporary linking of any number of channels or outputs for quick adjustment and setup

Controls for Mute Group and VCA Group assignment.

Controls for assignment of Vistonics™ rows to bus sends (when channel parameters are not assigned to Vistonics).

Snapshot automation controls.

Talkback & Oscillator controls.

Controls for Monitor Output level, phones level and Solo Trim and blend level.
