Redditch, UK (June 19, 2006)–SSE Hire has placed an initial order for four Soundcraft Vi6 digital live mixing consoles. The desks are expected to be delivered within the month.
At the sealing of the deal were (Left to right) Rich Rowley, Richard Willis and John Penn of SSE, Adrian Curtis of Soundcraft, and Fran Hunter of SSE.Having contributed input to the development of the Soundcraft Vi6 and recently completed trials with the unit at its warehouse in Redditch, SSE Hire manager Rich Rowley said, “We’ve known Soundcraft for many years and have been familiar with their trusted MH range, but have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the digital Vi6. We were not disappointed; our first experiences with it have been very exciting. The user interface is captivating and the architecture is well thought out.”
Officially launched at Frankfurt’s Pro Light + Sound expo this Spring, the Soundcraft Vi6 is the result of the newly integrated development and marketing teams of the Soundcraft Studer Group. With experience gained from Studer’s highly successful Vista broadcast and live performance consoles and Soundcraft’s range of live consoles, the development team brought three new, key technologies to bear on the Vi6–Vistonics II, Soundcraft FaderGlow and the new DSP core, SCore Live.
