Mega Audio recently supplied the audio reinforcement system, including a Soundcraft Si3 digital console, for a concert commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Evangelical Reformed Church of La Lima in Honduras.
The two-night, one-day Evangelistic Crusade Concert included the participation of Ministers of National Praise, Worship Ministry Children’s Church and Evangelical Reformed Church of La Lima, Lourdes Ministries, Carlos Martinez and Ministry Juda, and Roca Fuerte Shekina.
Based in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, Mega Audio specializes in the rental of professional audio, lighting and large video systems for projects including conventions, conferences, seminars, concerts and evangelistic religious events throughout Honduras.
For this event, Mega Audio needed a system with sufficient flexibility to facilitate seamless and quick transition between the numerous performers.
To that end, the company deployed the Soundcraft Si3 digital live sound console at the front of house position. “We chose the Si3 for its exceptional sound quality and for its speed and ease of setup,” says Luis Roberto Lopez Sanchez of Mega Audio.
According to Sanchez, the Si3 played a crucial role in the event’s success. “We had a large number of bands playing at this event, but thanks to the Si3, we were able to make quick and easy transitions between performers,” Sanchez says. “We could also easily make individual adjustments according to the preferences of each musician and singer.“
Boasting intuitive operation and high input and bus counts, the Soundcraft Si3 digital console is designed for live use on both touring sound systems and in fixed installations. Above each fader on the Si3 is a rotary encoder, the function of which changes according to the mode selected.
This ‘bank’ of encoders, known as the VCS or Virtual Channel Strip, can be set to control every function of a channel (known as Channel mode), so mic gain, EQ, dynamics, auxes, panning are all controlled in the same manner as an analog channel strip.
“The event was a tremendous success!” Sanchez adds. “The client and the attendees were satisfied with the quality and fidelity of the sound. The Si3 is an indispensable working tool and a great help for my business. I congratulate Soundcraft on their development of this terrific console.”
