Highlands Church invests in Vi3000

Published: WORSHIP

WORLD: As part of a wider audio refresh, Highlands Church in Scottsdale, Arizona has upgraded its FOH to a Soundcraft Vi3000. The console was reportedly selected for its high channel count, and a Soundcraft 64x32 stagebox further boosts the capacity.

‘After the capabilities of the Vi3000 were announced, I became very interested in the console for its value and accessibility of controls,’ said Highlands technical director, Luke Taylor. ‘We were able to cut out a lot of analogue equipment and cables from our inventory, streamlining the whole operation. I especially like hooking up via Dante for multi-tracking, so that we can stream live events on our websites.

‘Since we have a lot of volunteer operators that rotate on a schedule, I really appreciate the fact that I don’t have to tweak settings that are five layers deep anymore like with some of the other boards that I’ve worked with,’ continued Mr Taylor. ‘Features like FaderGlow are great shortcuts for newer users and definitely help me train them to become comfortable quickly while using the board. We wanted to see as many channels at one single time in a clear layout, and the Vistonics II touchscreen also delivered.’

The technical director is clearly pleased with the new addition, citing its sound quality as a major benefit. ‘It sounds great. I like the preamps and the EQ’s a lot more than some of the competitors. It takes a very short period of time to get everything dialled in and sounding the way I want it during rehearsals,’ he concluded.
