Harman’s Soundcraft is hosting its “Mixing with Professionals” (MwP) training sessions at the upcoming Prolight+Sound show in Frankfurt. The sessions will offer formal training and demonstrations on Soundcraft’s Si Expression range and the new Vi3000 digital console.
“We trained around 2,000 engineers over the past year on the Expression range as well as Vi and know the Vi3000 especially will draw lots of interest at the show,” says Keith Watson, marketing director, Soundcraft Studer & AKG, Harman Professional. “The MwP sessions offer a great opportunity to get hands-on experience with industry experienced engineers on hand to help and provide tips of the trade, everyone is welcome to join a session.”
The “all-in-one-box” Soundcraft Vi3000 digital live sound console offers a host of features, a new industrial design, 96 channels to mix, and onboard Dante. It also uses the new internal Soundcraft SpiderCore DSP based on sister company Studer’s Vista 1 engine, with Soundcraft’s Vi Version 4.8 operating software offering the new “3D” Vistonics user interface, while adding a fourth 24-channel fader layer to improve access to the console’s 96 input channels.
The surface operation and layout is similar to other Vi Series consoles, providing a familiar feel while offering expanded functionality. And, the Vi3000 also includes upgraded microphone preamps and 40-bit floating-point DSP processing.
The MwP sessions will be held all four days of the show (March 12-15) in both German and English languages at the Harman stand, number F32 in Hall 8. More details here.
