The Soundcraft Vi3000 features an all-new appearance with a more efficiently designed control surface, 36 faders, 24 mono/stereo busses and a sweeping black screen panel with four Vistonics II™ touchscreen interfaces with sleek, updated 3D graphics. Because the Vi3000 has four touchscreens, it's the only console in its class that can be used by two engineers at the same time.
Vi3000 features the STUDER vMIX automatic microphone mixing function. vMIX allows the levels of multiple microphones to be managed automatically to reduce the gain of any person who is not speaking, whilst keeping overall gain constant - reacting faster than a human hand to the sudden level changes in a dynamic panel discussion. This makes it an ideal Automixing function for Corporate Events and Broadcast programs.
The Soundcraft Vi3000 offers extensive rear panel connectivity. In addition to a full complement of analog and digital inputs and outputs, the console provides MIDI, USB, Ethernet, DVI out, Dante/MADI record feed outputs, redundant power supply and other connections. The Vi3000 has two expansion bays that can be fitted with MADI Stagebox cards, to connect multiple Soundcraft Stagebox input expander modules. The Vi3000 can also accommodate the new Soundcraft Realtime Rack, a hardware/software unit designed in collaboration with plug-in manufacturer Universal Audio that provides access to 74 industry-standard UAD plug-ins. The Vi3000 is the first Soundcraft console to incorporate a Dante interface as standard, for seamless digital audio networking with Dante-enabled devices.
Along with its greatly expanded functionality, the Vi3000 retains all the features that have made the Soundcraft Vi Series the consoles of choice for live sound engineers worldwide, such as FaderGlow™ illuminated faders that display different colors according to function, the ability to store and recall snapshots and cues, compatibility with Soundcraft's ViSi app that allows remote control from an iPad, built-in Lexicon reverb/delays, dbx compression, effects and more.
