By adding option cards to the Si range of digital consoles, you can interface your desk with a multitude of analogue and digital systems, whilst expanding I/O count beyond that of the standard console configuration.

Routing to and from the option cards is achieved via the 'Patching' functionality on the console. Further cards are always in development and will provide various solutions for interfacing onto emerging networks or devices.

The number of option cards that may be fitted varies by product model, as follows:

Soundcraft Si Compact 1 card
Soundcraft Si Expression 1 cards
Soundcraft Si Performer 2 cards
Soundcraft Si1 1 card
Soundcraft Si1+ 4 cards
Soundcraft Si2, Si2+ 4 cards
Soundcraft Si3, Si3+ 4 cards

USB Interface Compatibility:
PC: Supports Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.
Mac: Supports Mac OS 10.7.x Lion through 10.11.x El Capitan
