By PSW Staff • June 23, 2009 Engineer Chris Matthews (left) and Director of Audio Paul Abbott of theMovement at the new Soundcraft Si2 theMovement, a non-denominational church based in San Marcos, California, has chosen the new Soundcraft Si2 digital console as the heart of its sound system upgrade. The church was making the transition into digital for the first time so the sound quality, DSP power and the ease of use were crucial in the decision-making process for the console. “TheMovement church is very familiar with high-tech gear,” reports Chris Matthews, an engineer of over 15 years. “We needed a console that had the sound quality and the power to be able to use all gates and compressors and EQs at one time. “We wanted a console with history behind it and Soundcraft has a rich history including the Vi6, and their partnership with Studer is very appealing.” Matthews likes the ease of use of the Si2 and states, “The feature I like the most is that there are no real pages I have to go to in order to get an aux or EQ etc. I don’t have to rely on a screen to tell me what’s up!” “We looked at a couple of digital boards, but I was not caught up in the ‘trend’ consoles – just because everyone else has one does not make it a great board or even a great sounding board.” Soundcraft Website Harman Professional Website Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
