Soundcraft training heads to Turkey
TURKEY: Soundcraft recently hosted two days of training in Istanbul. The event was held in collaboration with its local distributor, SF Ses ve Işık Sistemleri A.Ş, and covered the manufacturer’s Si Impact, Vi 2000 and Vi 5000 consoles.
The first day of the event focused on the Si Impact. This session for 40 participants covered the hardware specifications of the mixer and its impact on the professional sound industry. On the more technical side, signal transfer with third party devices, the integration of the mixer over Dante and multi-track recording with Pro Tools was also covered.
The second day looked at the Vi 2000 and Vi 5000 consoles. Around 60 participants headed to the event which was led by Athena’s tonmeister Tayfun Öksüz. This session had a similar programme with the hardware specifications of the mixers and their impact on the professional sound industry providing the starting point. The discussion again moved on to signal transfer with third party devices, the integration of the mixers over Dante and multi-track recording but there were further technical elements to cover. The event moved on to discuss plugin usage with the Vi 5000 as well as real-time back up console usage. In addition to this, the seminar was used to introduce elements such as UAD real-time rack, virtual soundcheck and Soundcraft mirroring.
