The new VI1000 is the most compact member of the Vi-000 family (34×32 inches). Features include Soundcraft’s Vistonics IITM channel strip with FaderGlow, and SpiderCore—a powerful built-in DSP and I/O engine based on Studer technology, offering 40-bit floating-point processing. The Vi1000 also can function as an additional remote-control surface for any of the larger consoles in the range, using the company’s Mirroring feature. There is gating and compression on all 96 channel paths, audio processing including the BSS DPR901ii Dynamic EQ, and Lexicon multi-effects via an insertable processing pool—plus the ability to insert up to 64 external devices. Studer vMIX automatic voice mixing is built in, and BSS 966 graphic EQs are available on all output buses. Additionally, there is rear-panel local I/O featuring 16 HQ mic/line inputs, 16 line outputs, and two 64-channel expansion slots that allow up to two MADI-based Stageboxes to be connected, or the slots provide access to an extensive range of D21m I/O option cards.
