In news from the just-concluded NAMM show in Anaheim, Calif., is a new line of small mixers from Soundcraft.
Derived from the larger Si consoles, the rackmountable Si Compact series includes 16-, 24- and 32-input models. Prices start at $6,999.
Interesting features include onboard Lexicon effects, BSS graphic EQs, parametric EQ, compressors, delays and gates.
Faders and pots have lighting features. A full-color touchscreen allows for control of the mixer. Option cards allow for a number of networking protocols.
