When GRAMMY Award winner Peabo Bryson performed for a charity gala dinner at Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia last June, the Soundcraft Vi6â„¢ and Si3 consoles were used for front-of-house and monitor mixing. The R&B and soul sensation dazzled the crowd with a variety of songs at the High Networth Summit and Pride Foundation Charity Gala Dinner, both of which were set up by former Malaysia Prim Minister Tun Abdullah Badwal as an initiative to support breast cancer patients.
Bryson enthralled the crowd with his catalog of material, including his Disney hit duets â€œBeauty and the Beast [Beauty and the Beast]â€? and â€œA Whole New World [Aladdin].â€?
For the event, sound company Show Gear deployed a Soundcraft Vi6 front of house console and Soundcraft Si3 monitor console, which were supplied by Soundcraft distributor Systems Electronics & Engineering Sdn Bhd.
â€œThe Soundcraft Vi6 is easy
to set up and repatch, and the usability allows even the most elementary sound engineer to program and run any level event, even on their first use,â€? said the Show Gear team. â€œThe user interface is very straightforward, with multiple touch screens that allow for quick navigation and control of functions. The bank of faders makes the sound engineers feel that they are working on analogue and the changing fader colors relieve them of the â€˜digital panic.â€™â€?
The Soundcraft Vi6 and Soundcraft Si3 were also deployed at other high-profile events such as Monsoon Cup Concert, 2009 New Yearâ€™s Eve Countdown by Kota Bharu and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation Malaysiaâ€™s (MOSTI) official logo launch, according to Show Gear.
