Soundcraft will have a formidable array of their current catalogue on display, as they celebrate their 30th anniversary.

The MH3 and MH4 mid-priced, dual-purpose desks have been hugely popular since their launch and are certain to attract further interest, as will the Series Two.

Soundcraft also show the k1 and PowerStation range as well as the LX7 at the more compact end of the live console spectrum, while Spirit lovers can see the 324 Live as well as E and M Series desks, SX and FX series and ultra-compact Notepad among others.

Amek System 9098 and PurePath high-end signal processing devices will also be on demonstration on the stand.

The Soundcraft Group will have a strong presence at this year's IBC 2003.

Soundcraft itself will exhibit some of its flagship consoles, instantly recognisable to broadcasters.

The RM1d family features an all-digital processing path with totally assignable input selection from analog mic/line, S/PDIF, TDIF and AES/EBU sources. The two models each have integrated dynamics processing and Lexicon effects, cue speaker and dual timers, and digital processing provides the ability to store and recall up to 128 console presets of settings. New to both the RM1d and RM1ds is integration with RCS Master Control, the on-air digital audio system.

Meeting all the demands of professional broadcast applications is Soundcraft's flexible and modular B800 broadcast mixer. Extensive configuration options are offered within the modules contained within the B800's compact frame. Aside from its versatility, the B800 sets new standards in audio routing, remote control and signalling facilities.

Soundcraft recently introduced the unique, budget-priced Spirit ES, which caters for set-ups with multiple stereo sources that require simultaneous connection, such as keyboards, samplers and computers; hence its 10 stereo/4 mono channel design, with full EQ on all channels, balanced inputs and main outputs.

Supporting the Soundcraft roster is Amek's fully-featured, small-format mixing console, the BB100 production and on-air console. Available in configurations from 10 to 32 input channels, with four stereo or eight mono subgroups, and offering fully balanced input and output connections, the BB100 features four internal mix minus feeds and is easily reconfigurable.

Also manufactured by Amek - and designed by Rupert Neve - is the 9098 rack module and the Pure Path ranges of high quality signal processors. Racks of Amek's proprietary processing equipment will line up alongside that of BSS Audio, with industry standard 19in modules from the Omnidrive and Soundweb digital platforms as well as the DPR-422 dual compressor/de-esser (offering both broadband and HF de-essing options) and DPR-522 dual noise gate (featuring parametric key filter with adjustable frequency and width).
