Mixdown Magazine Soundcraft Notepad-8FX Review

November 2017

A great combination of modern and traditional looks, the Notepad-8FX feels sturdy and sleek but also looks hip. Furthermore, this little desk is intuitive and well laid out, making it easy to find things at glance.

Mixdown Magazine Soundcraft Ui24R Review

September 2017

Mixdown Magazine (Issue 281) review the Soundcraft Ui24R Digital Mixer/USB Multi-Track Recorder with Wireless Control.


One of the best features of this unit is that it really doesn't require too much reading of the manual to get the best out of it. It's such an intuitive design and such an easy setup that even the drummer can be left to organise the PA when the rest of the band is running late. Mixing with the Ui24R is a cinch, even when you want to get into it with compression, EQ and effects.

CX Magazine Soundcraft Vi7000 Review

February 2016

CX Magazine (Issue 111) review the Soundcraft Vi7000.


We reviewed the Vi3000 some months ago now and pretty well loved it to pieces. The interface, the sound, the look and the general usability of the console impressed us no end. The Vi7000 has all the same goodness, but in a somewhat different package.

February 2015

Audio Technology (Issue 107) review the Soundcraft Vi3000.


Canberra's Eclipse Lighting and Sound has been a big fan of Soundcraft's digital console range, at various times investing in Vi1, Si Performer and Si Expression series desks. When a growing business demanded a larger format console, Managing Director Chris Neal looked at the options and decided on two Soundcraft Vi3000 consoles to satisfy the increasing size and complexity of his customer's gigs.

Mixdown Magazine (Issue 260) review the Soundcraft Ui.


The live mixing game has certainly changed a lot in the last ten or so years, and Soundcraft are not one to be left behind in this. The release of their new Ui12 and Ui16 remote controlled digital mixers are sure to get a few ears pricked up around the place.

CX Magazine Soundcraft Ui Review

August 2015

CX Magazine (Issue 106) review the Soundcraft Ui.


The Ui Series has a feature set which make it a good choice for small musical acts (duos, trios and such). While it sits in a realistic price bracket to garner strong appeal in this market, it would work equally well in corporate AV.

CX Magazine Soundcraft Si Performer Review

December 2012

CX review the Soundcraft Si Performer.


Some years ago while working as the solo in-house venue tech, I decided I wanted to control lighting and audio from one console. I got a MIDI cable and some manuals and bought myself a world of frustration. It never worked real well. Now Soundcraft comes to the rescue, with the mixing console which does lights as well.

May 2013

Mixdown (Issue 229) review the Soundcraft Si Performer.


I make no secret about it, I love Soundcraft consoles. I have had one in my home studio for years and aside from all the space it takes up, due mostly to me wanting the biggest variation possible, it has never done me wrong, more than twenty years after it was built. So, needless to say, I was more than excited to have the new Soundcraft Si Performer delivered to me this month to have an all too short play with. I didnít want to give it back, So, what is it all about?

Audio Technology Soundcraft Ui Review

June 2015

Audio Technology (Issue 109) review the Soundcraft Ui.


The non-native app speaker that's fluent in every tongue. Soundcraft's HTML5-based app can operate the mixer from any device, including full control from your phone. And as part of the Harmon fellowship, the rest of the family has chipped in with some party tricks: Lexicon effects, Digitech amp modelling, and dbx feedback suppression - there's plenty to like about this ultra-flexible little box. Not least, the all-on-at-all-times, tri-mode connectivity.

CX Magazine Soundcraft Si Impact Review

October 2015

CX Magazine (Issue 108) review the Soundcraft Si Impact.


I've always found the Si range of consoles very appealing for two reasons - they're inviting to use, and they sound good. This much still holds true of the Si Impact.
