About the Soundcraft Si IMPACT
The best of both worlds
The best of both worlds
If you've ever wished for a mixing console with the easy, quick access of an analog board and the deep fine tuning capabilities of a digital mixer, welcome to Soundcraft's Si IMPACT. With 24 mic inputs and 8 mic/line combo jacks, plus 26 motorized faders available for quick level adjustments and easy access to EQ and effects for each channel, you can deal with just about any live or recording situation. The 5" touchscreen display gives you all the info you need about your settings.
Some seriously cool features
The FaderGlow™ feature assigns each function its own color, so you can see immediately if you're in prefade, postfade, effects, or EQ mode. A fully-customizable "scribble strip" allows you to name your channels — no more tape on the board! You'll have access to legendary Lexicon effects, and dbx compression and noise gates, so you can craft your sound precisely. And, speaking of precise, each channel and all 31 output busses feature a 4-band, fully parametric equalizer designed by Soundcraft's Graham Blythe.
Control to the max
Instead of 40 channel strips, the Si IMPACT gives you one channel strip with incredible control that be assigned to any one of the channels or outputs. Each knob has only one function, so there's no diving through menus to get to the place you want. You simply assign the channel strip to the channel you want to address, make your changes, and move on. When you are adjusting a monitor mix, for example, you press the Mix 1 button, and adjust the motorized faders. Press Mix 2, the faders return to their previous settings and you make your adjustments. Again, you're getting the ease of use of an analog board with the incredible flexibility of a digital console.
All soundpeople know the advantages of being able to walk around the venue, adjusting the mix as you go. Download Soundcraft's remote app, and you'll be able to mix from a laptop or from the main console. Musicians onstage can even adjust their own monitors.
The Si IMPACT features a built-in 32-in/32-out USB audio interface. With one single connection to your computer, you'll be able to make high-quality recordings. If you need more input channels, this board features a built-in MADI card — with a single Cat5 cable, you can add an optional Soundcraft mini stagebox to have up to 64 channels available.
In the past, mixing consoles have either been oriented toward live or studio use. The simple user interface and the powerful tools built into Soundcraft's Si IMPACT console allow you to adapt it to the job at hand, whether it's used for a recording studio, a live concert, a church, or a business event.
