By PSW Staff • March 31, 2010 The new Soundcraft Si2 digital console at work at the Singapore Hard Rock Cafe (larger image below) Hard Rock Café (HRC) Singapore recently upgraded its in-house sound system with a Soundcraft Si2 digital console to easily manage all entertainment from background music to multiple live bands each night. HRC Singapore was the first HRC to open in Asia more than 20 years ago, with the initial mixing console when it first opened a Soundcraft Spirit Live. The Spirit Live was subsequently replaced by a Soundcraft Delta and a Soundcraft Series 8000 32 channel that was in use for more than 10 years. Recently, the management and technical crew at HRC Singapore decided to replace its older Soundcraft Series 8000 console with the Soundcraft Si2. “It always comes down to the overall experience with our patrons, so we decided to concentrate on making the music really stand out. We have been using Soundcraft consoles from ‘day one’ and are very happy with their quality, sound and reliability. With the Si2, our system has performed flawlessly and sounds great,” says Irwan Snin, Front of House Engineer. The Si2 was supplied and installed by Electronics & Engineering (E&E) PTE LTD in Singapore. Established in 1951, E&E is one of Singapore’s leading A/V specialty contractors, and has represented Soundcraft for more than 20 years. Gary Goh, Director of E&E stated, “The user-friendliness of the board was the top selling point in our work with Hard Rock. The digital console was perfect for a mid-sized venue like this one. There is no doubt that the Si2 has made musical operations run much more smoothly at the Hard Rock.” Soundcraft Website Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
