A New Expression

Soundcraft has launched the Si Expression digital console range. Available in three frame sizes, Si Expression 1, 2 and 3, offering 16, 24 and 32 fader and mic inputs respectively, all three are capable of up to 66 inputs to mix by connecting any Soundcraft stagebox, or by connecting additional inputs over MADI or AES/EBU. All external inputs are additional to the connections on the desk itself. The mixer is loaded with processing from BSS, dbx, Lexicon and Studer, and features a colour touchscreen, iPad ViSi remote control and Soundcraft FaderGlow. The powerful DSP engine provides four-band parametric EQ, delays, gates and compressors on every input, parametric and 30-band graphic EQ, compressors and delays on all outputs, as well as four Lexicon stereo effects devices, all capable of being utilised at the same time. Freely assignable fader layers allow inputs and outputs to be placed anywhere on any layer.
