Production partners' heavy investment in Soundcraft Vi platform
Dutch sound and lighting company, Production Partners have committed to Soundcraft technology for the first time — by making a heavy investment in their new digital console platform.
At this month’s Pro Light+Sound exhibition in Germany, directors Menno Verkade and Ed de Bree confirmed the purchase of two complete Soundcraft Vi6™ packages (including 64-channel Stage Boxes) and the newly-launched Soundcraft Vi4™ from Soundcraft’s Dutch distributors, AudioXL.
Based in Maarssen, Production Partners specialise in the corporate event market. Said Menno Verkade, “The most important consideration was the sound quality, but the console also had to be easy to use — especially for sound engineers still moving across from the analogue to digital domains. Once the output and input patches have been configured, anyone can do a show on it within the space of an hour.”
Menno added that the decision to invest in Soundcraft’s digital technology had also been recommended by Danish company Nordic Rentals A/S, who had committed to two of the new Vi6’s.
A derivative of the Vi6, the new Vi4 offers the same functionality and facilities but in a smaller footprint, making it ideal for applications with space-restricted mix positions.
In just under 1.5m/5ft, it provides access to 48 inputs on 24 faders, with a total of 27 output busses available for use as masters, groups, auxes or matrices. All other features of the Soundcraft Vi6, including the highly acclaimed Vistonics™ II touch-screen user interface, Soundcraft FaderGlow™ fader function display and the unequalled audio quality, are inherited by the Soundcraft Vi4.
