By PSW Staff • April 1, 2009 The new Soundcraft Si2 digital console, with a smaller footprint than the previously released Si3. (Be sure to visit PSW's 2009 InfoComm New Product Gallery.) Soundcraft has announced a new member of the Si Series of digital consoles – the Soundcraft Si2 – a smaller partner to the company’s Si3. The Si2 comes in a smaller footprint than its bigger brother, and has 48 mic inputs mapped on 24 faders (the Si3 has 64 inputs), but this is where the differences end. The Si2, like the Si3, has four dedicated Stereo Line channels, four dedicated FX Returns from the four stereo Lexicon FX processors, 8 balanced insert sends and 8 balanced insert returns. Si2 is complete with 24 Group/Aux buses available at all times, 8 matrix buses and a full complement of monitor talkback and main bus outputs. One of the most unique and compelling features of the Si series is that every input and output has its own dedicated input (output) socket on the back of the console. Like the Si3, the Si2 uses a combination of rotary encoders and OLED screens on every channel so the engineer mixes at source, without recourse to a central screen, an interface welcomed by many engineers since the console’s launch last year. Four assignable on-board lexicon effect engines supplement 4 stereo inputs to provide a really powerful mix package in a width of 1.4m for a UK list price of £17,950. This package will be highly suited for installations where a smaller footprint is critical, such as theaters, houses of worship and smaller tour sound systems. With all input and output connections and power supply on board, the Si2 can simply drop in where an existing analog console sits, utilizing existing copper cable snakes and splitter systems.

Family Settings perform two functions on the Xbox 360 console. When playing offline, Family Settings can be set to grant or restrict access to games based on the ESRB rating. When playing online, Family Settings can be used to restrict access to content and contact based on the parent's choice.It's best to have online payments.I am really interested in and I also suggested you and I really in need of such things.Xbox 360 also recognizes ratings encoded into many DVD movies (not all DVD movies encode their rating, however, so in those cases the DVD will play by default). You can set Xbox 360 to play R, PG-13, PG, or G-rated movies. (This setting is not available in all markets.)voip Go online and check out the Xbox Live Family Settings. In addition to what games can be played based on rating, you can restrict access to your child's friends list or gamer profile. On the other hand if you want to restrict access completely, you can do that just as easily.
