NORTHRIDGE, CA—Soundcraft by HARMAN is pleased to introduce the Vi1000 Digital Mixing Console. Representing the culmination of the groundbreaking achievements and rich feature sets offered by Soundcraft’s acclaimed Vi Series, the new Vi1000 is the most compact member of the Vi-000 family—at just 86cm x 81cm (34” x 32”) in size, yet it retains all the mixing and processing power of its two larger siblings, the Vi2000 and 3000.
The Vi1000 is designed for live touring, music venue and corporate AV customer with applications where a compact and cost-effective, but powerful console is required. Employing Soundcraft’s unique and highly intuitive Vistonics II channel strip user interface, together with FaderGlow, the console combines the operating principles and workflows from the highly successful Vi3000, 5000 and 7000 consoles with Soundcraft SpiderCore—a powerful built-in DSP and I/O engine based on STUDER technology, offering 40-bit floating point processing for class-leading audio quality. The Vi1000 also comes into its own as an additional remote-control surface for any of the larger consoles in the range, using their Mirroring feature.
