We are happy to announce that we will be one of the first companies to take on the new HARMAN Soundcraft Vi7000 and Vi5000 digital mixing consoles. As a long time Soundcraft partner, we’re always excited to see what they will deliver with every new generation of their products, and the increased capacity and functionality made the purchase an obvious choice. Therefore, we’ve not only added Vi7000s to our inventory, but also also upgraded our existing rental stock to make sure our customers are getting the best possible results from the latest equipment.
Our Vi6 consoles have performed exceptionally for us, the increased I/O and ability to mix in 96k made this upgrade an obvious one for us. We have also loved working with the DPR901ii in the past and are very pleased to see it integrated into the Vi7000.
What will we be using the new Soundcraft Vi7000’s for?
We’ve got a busy summer planned for the consoles, and we’re looking forward to deploying one of the Vi7000s later in the year on the live production of “Mrs. Brown’s Boys – How Now Mrs. Brown Cow” – the arena touring version of the popular television sitcom that stars writer and performer Brendan O’Carroll.
What’s new About the Soundcraft Vi7000 and Vi5000 Consoles?
The Soundcraft Vi7000 and Vi5000 provide a choice of compact control surfaces with new local rack and active breakout box hardware, delivering simultaneous mixing of up to 128 inputs and 32 mono/stereo busses with up to 384 inputs and outputs in the I/O system allowing unlimited record feeds from all channels. Pristine sound quality is assured with ultra-low noise microphone amplifier designs and enhanced 96kHz 40-bit floating point digital audio processing, with the first ever digital implementation of the classic BSS DPR901ii Dynamic EQ adding to the channel processing armoury, while effects contain eight independent Lexicon multi-FX units, and a BSS graphic EQ on every bus output.The Soundcraft Vi7000 and Vi5000 also feature the latest 3D Vistonics II™ and FaderGlow™ interfaces, plus an improved ViSi Remote iPad control interface completes the package.
“I’ve always loved the ease of use and the amount of visual feedback that the Vi user interface gives to the engineer, the new features have been integrated very subtly in to the existing interface, so moving forward it isn’t like you have to learn a new console with a different layout. Show compatibility is retained and this makes it a very simple transition in either direction with the new models,”
What about the Vi4 and Vi6 Consoles?
“The highly successful Vi4 and Vi6 consoles will continue to be offered for sale and ongoing support in the same manner as the rest of the Vi Series.”
