The Vistonics interface is central to the Vi3000 design philosophy, providing direct access to all functions with maximum information and visibility at all times. 16 switches and rotary encoders are built into each Vistonics screen, so where you look is where you control. Functions are colour-coded and change according to the selected mode and one touch of the screen is all it takes.
FaderGlow™ is a unique and elegant solution to the inevitable confusion caused by assignable faders. Fader tracks are illuminated in colours that integrate with the Vistonics screens to provide at-a-glance information. Matrix outputs, sends on fader, VCA groups, graphics EQ - you'll always know exactly what function is being controlled by what fader at any given time. And with all fear on confusion removed, operators are free to take full advantage of Vi3000's user-configurable fader layers, mapping essential channels to a central position and customising outputs for convenient operation.
The Vi3000 is a console with friends in high places. Sound quality is assured by Soundcraft SpiderCore - a brand new 40-bit floating point DSP engine that mixes FPGA and DSP technology in a unique combination that maximises IO routing and DSP mixing capability in a footprint small enough for inclusion within a control surface. FX come courtesy of 4 independent stereo Lexicon multi effects units., each providing a choice of 14 reverbs, 7 delays and 8 pitch shifting effects, patchable to input channels, aux outputs and channel inserts. BSS third-octave Graphic EQ is available on every bus output, with fader bays illuminating in red to indicate GEQ mode.
Vi3000 gives you everything you need integrate into Dante audio networks and access DAWs for live multitrack recording and virtual soundchecking via MADI. MIDI, USB and Ethernet ports are also included, along with a DVI output and 4 channels of AES I/O. Uninterrupted performance is assured by dual redundant PSUs.
With up to 48 on-board mic inputs, Vi3000 is happy to work with existing analogue multicore systems. Also available is an optional remote stagebox housing 64 analogue mic/line inputs and 32 analogue line outputs, with 48V phantom power and a 100Hz HPF before the A-D converters. Mic amp gain can be controlled remotely from the console surface.
Two ports on the Vi3000's rear panel open up a world of possibilities for I/O expansion and networking. Simply choose from the most comprehensive range of expansion cards in the business.
Vi3000 is packed with powerful features to help you set up and control the show. Offline set, settings libraries and copy/paste functions get you where you need to be quickly, while sophisticated automation and radio mic status monitoring help you run the show.
Control major functions and optimise your mix from anywhere in the venue. Adjust monitor levels from the stage.
