The user configurable fader layers are allowing input channels to be reassigned anywhere on either input layer and any bus master reassigned to either master layer. Now an engineer can put the inputs and returns where they are most needed.
Soundcraft’s popular small-format (but big-hearted) digital console Si Compact has received a major upgrade with the V2 software release which was launched at Winter NAMM
show 2012 in Anaheim, CA. The upgrade (which is free for existing Si Compact owners) provides more than 23 major new features, updates and enhancements; the first welcome addition being eight additional DSP
channels expanding the Si Compact 16 and Si Compact 24 to 32 and 40 inputs to mix, respectively. Si Compact mixers will also be showcased at Prolight+Sound Show
2012 in Frankfurt. The Si Compact won a Musikmesse International Press Award (MIPA) 2013
at Musikmesse Prolight + Sound Frankfurt
