Visitors to the Plasa Focus show in Leeds next week will be amongst the first to get their hands on Soundcraft’s new Vi7000 console. Sound Technology Ltd, Harman Professional distributer in the UK & Eire will be demonstrating the console on stand N-A11 at the show, which takes place at the Royal Armouries on the 12th & 13th May.
The Vi7000 and Vi5000, announced at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt this month, are the next generation of Soundcraft’s Vi platform and provide a choice of compact control surfaces with new local rack and active breakout box hardware, delivering simultaneous mixing of up to 128 inputs and 32 mono/stereo busses. With up to 384 inputs and outputs in the I/O system allows unlimited record feeds from all channels.
Pristine sound quality is assured with ultra-low noise microphone amplifier designs and enhanced 96kHz 40-bit floating point digital audio processing, with the first ever digital implementation of the classic BSS DPR901ii Dynamic EQ adding to the channel processing armoury, while effects contain eight independent Lexicon multi-FX units, and a BSS graphic EQ on every bus output. Both consoles also feature an additional dedicated 64ch MADI interface for Realtime Rack; a collaboration with Universal Audio that gives users access to industry-standard UAD studio plugins.
Rapid configuration via new encoder assign functions and shortcut keys are joined by a new extension to the Vi’s patent-applied-for VM2 radio microphone status monitoring feature, with Shure ULXD systems now recognised alongside AKG’s DMS800 and WMS4500 systems.
