Soundcraft updates ViSI Remote iPad app
Soundcraft has released version 2.0 of its ViSi Remote iPad app, which allows remote control of Soundcraft Vi, Si Compact, Si Performer and Si Expression mixing consoles wirelessly from an iPad device.
ViSi Remote 2.0 requires no additional hardware other than a wireless access router connected to the Harman HiQnet Ethernet port of the console.
By using ViSi Remote 2.0, engineers are free to roam the venue and adjust mixes and other audio parameters directly from an iPad.
V2.0 has the ability for Si Compact,Performer and Expression users to adjust channel strip settings per channel including settings such as Gate, Compressor and EQ along with Pan, LR/Mono routing and phase invert switches. This functionality will be added to Viconsoles in a future update.
Soundcraft ViSi Remote 2.0 also includesthe ability to optimise the front of house mix from anywhere in the room,adjust monitor levels while standing next to the artist, adjust channel strip settings remote from the console, and extend the fader count of an existing control surface.
It can be used in standalone mode for familiarisation with console functions, it can control a network of consoles (e.g. FOH and Monitor), and provide a separate surface for DMX functionality (Si Performer only).
