Si Series gets little brother

AUTHOR: Inavate

Soundcraft has announced the Si2, a smaller partner to the Si3, aimed at those wanting a compact but well featured console at a competitive price.

The Si2 has a smaller footprint that its bigger brother, and has 48 mic inputs mapped on 24 faders, but this is where the differences end. The Si2 shares the four dedicated stereo line channels, four dedicated FX returns from Lexicon FX processors, 8 balanced insert sends and 8 balanced insert returns. Si2 is complete with 24 Group/Aux busses available at all times, 8 matrix busses and a full complement of monitor talkback and main bus outputs.

The package will be suited for installations where a smaller footprint is crucial, such as theatres, houses of worship and small sound systems.
