Thunder Audio VP Paul Owen remarked, “In this day and age, you have to be diverse to attract a wider range of clients, yet still accommodate your current one. As we continue to grow at Thunder Audio and the digital world takes over from analog, we increase our inventory according to demand, performance and popularity. Adding the Soundcraft Vi6 to our selection of digital consoles seemed the way to go. The format of the console is very user-friendly and the eight-engine Lexicon package gives you an unbelievable selection of great sounding effects to choose from.”
Owen added that the purchase was not made lightly: “We first looked at the console about a year ago and, at that point, it was still quite new and not appearing on many riders or being seen on tours yet. However, as we’ve observed, a year can certainly make a big difference in the development of a console and its profile. So we have now invested in the Vi6, which we feel is a great addition to our present stock, and fully expect that it will deliver a significant return on our investment.”
