Drawing on over 40 years experience in live sound mixing, Si Impact brings the latest digital mix innovations together with the unrivalled sound quality of Soundcraft. Designed to be as simple as an analog mixer, but offer radical workflow enhancements like our unique FaderGlow system, massive DSP power, and a pristine 32-in/32-out USB audio interface, Si Impact delivers digital live sound mixing and recording for those who refuse to compromise on audio quality.
The legendary British sound From humble beginnings in London more than 40 years ago and still designed and engineered in the UK, Soundcraft defined the term ‘British sound’ in live sound mixing consoles. Soundcraft Co-Founder Graham Blythe’s acclaimed microphone preamps and ‘British’ equaliser ensures the Si Impact proudly carries Soundcraft’s signature sound today. Going beyond analogue control Combining One-Knob-One-Function control with unique features like FaderGlow, Soundcraft combines analogue workflow with digital flexibility.
FaderGlow illuminates the fader track in different colours to provide at-a-glance status information on precisely what the fader is controlling, aux sends, FX sends or even the graphic EQ that’s available on every bus. Each fader channel also features a clear multi-color LCD display - giving ‘at a glance’ information on levels and offering a fully customisable’scribble strip’ to name your channels.
World-class effects & dynamics Si Impact isn’t just packed with DSP power. It’s packed with DSP power from the acknowledged experts in digital FX. That means studio-grade reverbs, delays and modulations from Lexicon, legendary dbx dynamics and industry-standard BSS Graphic Equalisers.
