Soundcraft is now offering an eight-part instructional online video series hosted on its website, focused on the Si Series of digital consoles. The videos offer practical instruction on how to get the most from a Soundcraft Si console in live sound, recording and fixed-installation applications.
“The video series offers real-world information and depth of subject matter for a broad spectrum of users, whether they’ve never had their hands on a Soundcraft console before and need to get up and running quickly or have mixed hundreds of shows and want to dig deeply into a console’s feature set,” says Keith Watson, marketing director, Soundcraft Studer.
In addition to the Si Series, Soundcraft’s online video vault covers every console range including the Vi Series, Si Expression, Si Performer and analogue consoles. Topics include basic operation and configuration, gain structure, channel assignment and using EQ and effects to Soundcraft-specific features like the Vistonics II colour touchscreen interface and FaderGlow illuminated, colour-coded faders.
“At Soundcraft we’re dedicated to providing our users with the educational tools they need to get the most out of their consoles,” says Watson. “We’d like to think our video series is the next best thing to having a front of house engineer standing next to you behind the console.”
