Vi3000

96 input, 32 output Vi series console with integrated MADI and Dante ports

RRP: £27,465.00 + VAT

Why mix through a single, central screen when you could see the full picture?

The new Soundcraft Vi3000 empowers engineers to work intuitively. A new 3D Vistonics™ interface places control knobs directly in the touch screens that provide the visual feedback, while FaderGlow™ fader track illumination makes perfect sense of assignable layers. With local I/O and SpiderCore DSP ‘in the box’, the Vi3000 packs a class-leading feature list including built-in Dante and MADI, Lexicon FX and optional UAD Powered Plug-in integration using the Soundcraft Realtime Rack.


Vistonics™
Touch. See. Mix.


Image title


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™
Suddenly assignable layers make perfect sense

Image title


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.


UAD plug-ins. Lexicon FX. SpiderCore DSP.
No wonder this console sounds so good.

Image title


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.


Dante. MADI. More.
It's all built-in. 

Image title


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.


Optional 64 channel stagebox

Image title


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. 


At last.
A live sound console that's ready to talk to everybody.

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.


There's no such thing as too much control.

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.

SSE Group makes immediate investment in new Soundcraft Vi3000


“This is the first time a large format Vi control surface has been available to the market at this level and the Vi3000 will integrate very neatly and cost effectively into venues with existing analogue infrastructure via the I/O on the back of the surface. Onboard MADI and Dante interfaces as standard are also a huge bonus as well as upgraded DSP and new graphics.”

Alex Penn, SSE Audio


Adlib installs Vi3000 at Liverpool University

“This is a really easy board to walk up to and with 96 inputs and 24 stereo busses, it can handle much more complex shows when required without a venue having to rent in a different console.”

Dave Kay, Adlib 


Phonophobia add Soundcraft Vi3000 to expanding hire fleet

“Visiting engineers patched in through Dante or MADI, and since we have a lot of riders now showing Vi1 or Vi6 most seemed excited to be using the new desk.”

Mark Chant, Phonophobia
