With the Soundcraft Vi Series now firmly established as a firm favourite digital desk on both the touring, broadcast and installed sound scenes, Soundcraft have taken this amazing platform to another, more affordable level with the release of the new Vi1 console.

Many users have asked for a smaller, lower-priced desk that still has the acclaimed VistonicsTM user interface, and of course the now-legendary optimal sound quality established with the Vi Series.

So here it is, the Soundcraft Vi1™.

A complete standalone console package with 32 channels of analogue input to 27 analogue outputs, plus 6 digital inputs, 4 Stereo FX Returns and 6 digital outputs in one chassis. As standard, Input to mix capacity is 46chs, but by adding a stagebox (compatible with the existing Vi racks), simultaneous channel count increases to 64. Channels are routable to 24 multifunction busses, plus LR and Mono Mix busses.
Up to 8 of the busses can be configured as Matrix mixes, each with up to 16 sources.

The surface is just over a metre wide, and includes 16 motorised channel faders with fixed and user-definable layers, 8 output/VCA faders and 2 master faders.

What’s really cool about the Vi1 though, is the new Widescreen Vistonics interface, which will be instantly familiar to anyone who’s driven a Vi6 or Vi4, as well as retaining the same ‘walk-up’ user-friendliness of the other Vi consoles. This new development displays all parameters for 16 channels side by side, on a single 22″ Vistonics touch screen. The upper half of the screen handles the Output section control as well as Cue List or Menu displays. Parameter control is via two rows of 16 rotary encoders. Exactly the same channel functionality as the Vi6 and Vi4 is available here, along with all the same core snapshot, talkback and monitoring facilities.

Naturally, the Vi1 inherits many of the facilities of its larger siblings, including Soundcraft FaderGlow™, 4 stereo Lexicon effects engines, BSS Audio graphic EQs on all output busses, and integral dynamics on all channels. The desk is also compatible with Vi2, 4 and 6 show files.

As you’d expect, the price of the Vi1 is extremely attractive, which is sure to make it a clear winner with engineers and sound companies.

The Vi1 rear panel features 32 mic/line inputs, plus AES (4 channels) and SPDIF (2 channels) digital inputs. A Studer D21m system-based double card slot accommodates a range of I/O options including AES and MADI, which can be used to connect an optional Compact Stagebox or standard 64 channel Vi Series Stagebox, with all inputs and outputs fully patchable from the Vi1 control surface.

Twenty seven line outputs (24 busses + LRC) are located on the rear panel, along with monitor A and B outputs, and AES (4 channels) and SPDIF (2 channels) digital outputs. Including the internal FX returns, the total input count is an incredible 110 sources, available to patch to the 64 mixing channels.

Cat5 or fibre-optic cables provide a convenient, highly robust connection between the Vi1 and Soundcraft Vi Series™ stageboxes.

A comprehensive provision of inputs and outputs can be patched to any channel input, direct output, bus output or insert point as required.The standard Vi stagebox houses 64 analogue mic/line inputs and up to 32 analogue line outputs, with 48V phantom power and a 100Hz HPF before the A-D converters. Mic amp gain can be controlled remotely from the control surface. Optional AES/EBU inputs and outputs are available for the stagebox in sections of 8.
