Soundcraft Vi6™ Digital Console On Tour With Modest Mouse, Mixes To Thunder’ous Applause!

A Soundcraft Vi6™ digital mixing console was recently selected to tour with the famous American alternative and indie rock band Modest Mouse. The United States and Canadian tour required a versatile mixer and the FOH engineer, Phillip J. Harvey, selected the Vi6 for its Vistonics™ II easy-to-use touch-screen user interface and its vast array of capabilities. Tom Hejnicki, Project Manager for Thunder Audio, supplied the console to the Modest Mouse tour and labels the Vi6 as one of the most “analog-user-friendly” consoles available.

Tom also adds, “The compact footprint of the Vi6 makes it an ideal console for live sound and tour applications. The Vi6’s ability to eliminate the need for external processing racks is a major benefit and the Lexicon reverbs and effects as well as the BSS EQ suite provide outstanding sound and versatility to the performance.”

“Touring with the Vi6 has saved us a considerable amount of time setting-up for shows and we are able to conserve a generous amount of space in the truck as well.”

“I was instantly impressed with the Vistonics platform,” continued Hejnicki. “The intuitive nature of the control surface is immediately evident and the transition to Vistonics is seamless.”

The Soundcraft Vi6 was developed by Harman companies Soundcraft and Studer and utilizes core processing and user interface technologies, shared with Studer’s Vista Series and OnAir 3000 consoles. It has 96 mono inputs that mix into 35 outputs. The console provides direct outputs on all 96 channels in addition to internal bus routing.
