The Vi2 inherits the basic functionality of Soundcraft’s larger Vi4 and Vi6 consoles, but measures just 850mm in width – approximately half that of the Vi6. Equipped with one channel section of eight input faders, and a master section holding eight faders, the Vi2 can manage as many inputs as a Vi4 or Vi6 (72 and 96 channels, respectively) using a standard stagebox and local rack hardware, with access to eight inputs at a time on the channel bay. By touching the input meters on the Vistonics screen of the master section, control of those inputs is brought onto the channel faders, along with all the channel functionality such as EQ, auxes and groups. In addition to the meter selection, three fully customisable layouts of the eight input faders are available via the new fader page feature installed as part of the V4.0 software update for all Vi consoles. The Soundcraft Vi2 will therefore appeal to anyone who wants to use a Vi console but has more limited space than usual in which to operate. The Vi2’s Show files are fully compatible with Vi4 and Vi6 consoles, and also with the Virtual Vi Offline Editing software. All the usual processing is accessible via the Local Rack, and 30-band graphic EQs are available by using a new paging system accessed via the eight output section faders.
