Soundcraft Library

Version 2 for Soundcraft's Vi6 and Vi4 desks adds copy/paste facilities and a new Library function (pictured).

The copy/paste function allows the settings of any channel, bus, effects section or processing element to be copied and pasted to any number of other channels. The last paste operation can be quickly reversed with an Undo function. Blocks or individual parameters within a channel are selected for copying via touchscreen selection on the same Vistonics™ II screens that are used for audio control functions.

The new Library functionality allows a user to select any set of parameters in use on the desk to be stored in the internal library and recalled at will. The libraries can be exported to or imported from the USB memory stick, allowing users to build up their own portable channel and processing libraries that can easily be transferred to any Vi console they have to work on. This is done independently of the Show Files, which already allow entire desk settings to be exported.

Within the new software are a number of useful libraries of EQ and dynamics settings to suit common applications.

Other important enhancements are that the master output graphic and parametric equalizers can now be linked for easier L/R or L/C/R EQ adjustments, while on stereo input channels the pan and gain controls are now individually adjustable on left and right.

A new auto-backup system ensures that in the event of mains power to the surface being interrupted during a show, the last settings of the desk will be retained and restored automatically when power is restored. The upgrade is now available; more information can be found at For additional SR news, visit The Briefing Room or
