The Soundcraft ViSi Remote is an iPad app which provides wireless control of Soundcraft Si Expression, Si Compact, Si Performer and Vi Series consoles. ViSi Remote allows you to mix and contour your sound from anywhere in a venue without being constrained by cables.

Systems can be configured to run in several ways.

  1. A single iPad can control one console’s levels and graphic EQ.
  2. Multiple iPads can control a single console’s settings. This means that artists can each control their own monitor mix directly from their performance position on stage.
  3. A single iPad could control a number of consoles in a network, which may include any of the consoles noted in the above range, so Si and Vi consoles may be mixed on a network.
  4. The ViSi app may be used as an offline familiarisation tool.

Simply connect a Wireless Router* to the HiQnet port on the console and mix remotely within minutes. * Soundcraft does not guarantee operation with all wireless routers.
