EAST BRUNSWICK, New Jersey – Michael Matta of South River, New Jersey-based GMT Electronics recently installed a HARMAN Soundcraft Si Expression 3 at St. Mary’s Coptic Orthodox Church in East Brunswick, New Jersey. Matta also purchased a Soundcraft Si Expression 1 for GMT Electronics for a variety of applications.
GMT Electronics provides pro audio solutions for houses of worship, corporate events and conferencing environments. Matta has been a long-time Soundcraft enthusiast, both as a customer and certified dealer. “That’s the beauty of my relationship with Soundcraft. I was a customer at first and now I’m a certified dealer for a product I really love. I’ve been a fan of Soundcraft all along,” said Matta.
When considering a new console for St. Mary’s, Matta required a board that offers ease of use and high-quality mixing capabilities. “What I like about the Si Expression is its simplicity because you don’t have to use a lot of menus or sub-menus while mixing, which can be distracting for live applications,” said Matta. “In addition, the built-in effects are very powerful and allow for operation without having to buy external equipment. It’s really phenomenal.”
Matta also discovered the Si Expression is easy to learn—an important feature for a house of worship that relies on volunteer staff to operate its audio system. “You can start to get familiar with the Si Expression within a day or two. The average user doesn’t have to know all the features yet and can still produce a mix. You can easily learn on the go with the Si Expression,” said Matta.
GMT Electronics and Matta equip local houses of worship in the area with pro audio solutions and are currently in the process of installing a Soundcraft Si Expression 3 at another local church.
“I’m very happy with the Soundcraft quality,” Matta concluded. “We appreciate Soundcraft and what Soundcraft means to us.”
