The Vi1 is a complete stand-alone console package with 32 channels of analog input to 27 analog outputs, plus six digital inputs, four stereo FX returns and six digital outputs in one chassis. As standard, input to mix capacity is 46 channels, but by adding a stagebox (compatible with the existing Vi racks), simultaneous channel count increases to 64. Channels are routable to 24 multifunction buses, plus L/R and mono mix buses.

Up to eight of the buses can be configured as matrix mixes, each with up to 16 sources. The surface is just more than a meter wide, and includes 16 motorized channel faders with fixed and user-definable layers, eight output/VCA faders and two master faders.

The new Widescreen Vistonics interface should be instantly familiar to anyone who’s mixed on a Vi6 or Vi4. This new development displays all parameters for 16 channels side by side on a single 22-inch Vistonics touch screen. The upper half of the screen handles the output section control and cue list or menu displays. Parameter control is via two rows of 16 rotary encoders. Exactly the same channel functionality as the Vi6 and Vi4 is available, along with all the same core snapshot, talkback and monitoring facilities.

The desk is compatible with Vi4 and Vi6 show files through the Virtual Vi offline editor, which is available as a free download.
