The Soundcraft Si Expression 1 digital mixing console offers state-of-the art DSP and component technology at an affordable price. Featuring 16 recallable mic pre amps plus 4 line inputs, 4 internal stereo FX returns, AES in, and a 64×64 expansion slot, Si Expression 1 features 66 available input processing channels, each with dedicated processing for high-pass filter, input delay, gate, compressor and four-band EQ. A comprehensive automation system adds four mute groups and FaderGlow for enhanced visibility.

With a range covering the portable 19-inch rack mount Si Expression 1 to the 32- fader Si Expression 3, each Si Expression console is identical in its feature set, leaving you to choose the amount of faders and local mic amps needed. ??All Si Expression consoles have busses, output processing and connectivity to match the versatility of the inputs; the 14 aux/group mixes can be configured as 14 mono mixes, 8 mono plus 6 stereo mixes or almost anything in between, whilst the four matrix mixes can be mono or stereo as needed. The bus and matrix mixes are complemented with four more mix busses dedicated to the internal Lexicon FX processors all in addition to the left, right and centre busses. Each bus mix features a compressor, 4-band EQ, BSS graphic EQ and delay. An addition 16 balanced line outputs, headphone monitor out, AES out and a 64×64 option slot are also provided. ??To complement the channel and bus processing all Si Expression consoles integrate four stereo Lexicon FX processors based on the MX400 providing a wealth of sounds, user adjustable parameters and dedicated tap-tempo keys. As the FX are hardware based, so processing power is not effected with the effects are in use, and all dynamics, EQs, filters, delays, and GEQs remain available regardless what you are doing. ??Flexible onboard and expansion I/O options provides integration with other system components utilising any of the ViSi Connect Si series option cards including MultiDigital Card (Firewire/USB/ADAT), BSS Digital Audio Bus (BLU Link), Dante, CAT5 or optical MADI, AVIOM, CobraNet and others. The MADI card, as well as being an interface to multi-track recording systems or plug-in systems like the Soundcraft Realtime Rack, enables users to link the Si Expression to any of the Soundcraft or Studer stageboxes to extend the I/O power and flexibility. Adding a stagebox to an Si Expression actually increases the number of channels you can mix at once not just how many inputs you have available to choose from. Dedicated controls are provided for each of the mixers parameters, plus a row of global mode encoders and colour touch screen functionality ensures quick and easy operation. The latest generation EMMA DSP processor delivers power, reliability and numerous user-friendly features.
