Soundcraft Si Expression 1 Digital Mixing Console


OVERVIEWQuality mixer at a breakthrough price.There are numerous mixing consoles flooding the market in this day and age–metal chassis with knobs and faders that do the job but that do not sound particularly great. Still, they have an effect on the market significantly, so Soundcraft developed the Expression Series, essentially an update of their much beloved Compact Series, introduced at a price that may be competitive with the budget consoles that have grabbed this kind of large a part of the market. Now you’ll be able to get a Soundcraft console with the legendary “British sound,” the creamy EQ and the colorful preamps that defined such a lot of the music that defines recent music. The Si Expression 1 is the 16-channel version of this mixer. A detailed description follows: Drawing on more than a decade of experience in the field of digital audio mixing, the Soundcraft Si Expression exploits one of the vital newest DSP, component technology and manufacturing techniques to deliver Soundcraft’s most powerful cost effective digital console ever. Each console in the range is identical in its feature set so your only choice is how many faders and local mic amps you wish to have. With a range covering the super portable 19″ rack mount Expression 1 to the mighty Si Expression 3 with its 30+2 faders and 32 mic/line inputs there’s a model to meet all needs. The Si Expression 1 features 16 recallable mic preamps, plus 4 line inputs, 4 internal stereo FX returns, AES in, and a 64×64 expansion slot offering more than enough scope to use every one of the vital 66 input processing channels. Every input processing channel has dedicated processing for high pass filter, input delay, gate, compressor and four band EQ whilst keeping it under regulate is a comprehensive automation system augmented with four mute groups and FaderGlow to light the way so you are never lost. All Si Expression consoles have busses, output processing and connectivity to match the versatility of the inputs; the 14 aux/group mixes can also be configured as 14 mono mixes, 8 mono plus 6 stereo mixes or almost anything in between, whilst the 4 matrix mixes can also be mono or stereo as needed. The bus and matrix mixes are complemented with four more mix busses dedicated to the internal Lexicon FX processors all along with the left, right and center busses. Each bus mix features a compressor, 4 band EQ, BSS graphic EQ and delay all the time to be had all the time. Output connectivity is comprehensive with all models featuring 16 balanced line outputs, headphone monitor out, AES out and of course the 64×64 option slot. To complement the channel and bus processing all Si Expression consoles integrate four stereo Lexicon FX processors based on the MX400 providing a wealth of sounds, user adjustable parameters and dedicated tap-tempo keys. As the FX are hardware based, use of all of the effects, even on the most demanding programmes does not have an effect on other processing in any way and all dynamics, EQs, filters, delays, and GEQs remain to be had regardless what you are doing. Flexible onboard and expansion I/O options ensure your Si Expression integrates effortlessly with other system components utilising any of the Si series option cards including AES, Firewire/USB/ADAT, AVIOM, CobraNet, BSS Digital Audio Bus (BLU Link), Dante CAT5 or optical MADI. The MADI card, in addition to being an interface to multi-track recording systems or plug-in systems like Waves, enables linking the Si Performer to any of the Soundcraft or Studer stageboxes to extend the I/O power and flexibility. Adding a stagebox to an Si Expression in reality increases the number of channels you’ll be able to mix at once not just how many inputs you have to be had to make a choice from! It is said ╦ťPower is nothing without regulate’ and here the Si Expression excels with a comprehensive but ‘simple to use’ regulate surface incorporating a dedicated regulate for every parameter, a row of global mode encoders and colour touch screen ensuring operation is quick and easy. As you would expect from any Soundcraft digital mixer the facilities are extensive and include legendary audio quality courtesy of the contemporary generation EMMA DSP processor, the same DSP platform that has helped propel previous Soundcraft Si series consoles to fame. All this power united with reliability, flexibility and usability puts the Si Expression in a class of its own.FEATURES-16 mono mic inputs-4 line inputs-Colour touch screen interface-66 channels to mix conceivable-Pre/Post selection per input per bus-AES out and in-Global mode encoders-Soundcraft FaderGlow-GEQ on every bus-20 sub-group / aux busses-4 FX busses-8 Matrix busses-LR and C Mix busses-4 Stereo Lexicon Effects engines-Delay on inputs and outputs-4 Mute Groups-AES out and in-Freely assignable insert loops-Harman HiQnet integrationOrder today and get the classic British EQ and mic preamps at a price you’ll be able to have enough money.SPECIFICATIONSSi Expression 1 Digital MixerTypeDigitalChannels16Inputs – Mic Preamps16 x XLRInputs – Line4 x TRSInputs – Digital1 x Stereo AES/EBU (XLR)Outputs – Digital1 x Stereo AES/EBU (XLR)Outputs – Main2 x XLROutputs – Direct16 x XLRAux Sends20 x Aux SendsBusses/Groups4 x BusData I/OHarman HiQnetComputer ConnectivityVia Optional Firewire/USB/ADAT CardI/O Expansion SlotsYesFaders16 x 100mmEQ Bands4-bandRackmountableYesHeight6.7″Depth20.5″Width19″Weight24.2 lbs.Manufacturer Part Number5035677
