The new Mini Stagebox range from Soundcraft provides a simple solution to stage connectivity offering a lower-cost option for many systems where the modularity and configurability of the larger systems are not required.
The Mini Stagebox 32 (3RU) provides 32 analog inputs and eight analogue line outputs, with four pairs of AES outputs, providing a total I/O capacity of 32 inputs and 16 outputs. The Mini Stagebox 16 (2RU) has 16 analog inputs and eight line outputs making a 16 x 8 matrix.
They connect to any of the Soundcraft Si Expression, Si Compact, Si Performer, Si Series and Vi Series consoles via a MADI card fitted to the option card slot.
The Mini Stagebox models contain an integral PSU so are completely self-contained and sit comfortably stage-side.
The new units are part of the ViSi Connect range of interface options for all Soundcraft mixing consoles which includes the Compact and Vi Stageboxes and a range of option cards such as MADI, AES, CobraNet and AES.
