SOUNDCRAFT Vi2000 WITH SPIDERCORE
11 April 2016
Soundcraft’s Vi2000 combines the unique Vistonics-based control surface with Soundcraft SpiderCore, an integrated DSP and I/O engine based on Studer technology. SpiderCore is a 40-bit, floating-point DSP engine that mixes FPGA and DSP technology to maximise I/O routing and DSP mixing capability. The Vi2000 is configurable up to 48 mic line inputs and 16 line outputs, using combinations of 16-channel XLR modules in four rear-mounted slots. The total I/O count of the console is 246 in and 246 out if you use the expansion slots. Dante integration is taken care of with a built-in 64×64-channel Dante interface. Further audio networking potential is provided by the optical MADI interface. Soundcraft has managed to pack all this into an impressively compact frame-size — only 1.15m wide, with 16 input faders and eight output faders.
