Soundcraft® Si3 Rounds Out Audio System At Naparima Bowl
As part of an audio system upgrade to the 38-year-old venue, AMR was tasked with installing an affordable audio console that would have a small footprint, while still supporting a high channel count necessary for the variety of productions. “It was important to find a system that allowed the sound crew to easily learn and quickly adapt to multiple productions,” said Aaron Rudden, Owner of AMR Export. “The Naparima Bowl plays host to a wide variety of programs and the Si3 allows users to easily set and monitor levels regardless of the acts on the day-to-day schedule.”
The Soundcraft Si3 is designed for live use on both touring sound systems and in fixed installations and its intuitive operation and high input and bus count makes it a perfect choice for theater applications.
Rudden notes that the Si3’s practical and intuitive operation was a big selling point, as it is also being used to train aspiring audio engineers. “It was important that the console had an analog feel to avoid the brand-propriety type, ‘menu-driven’ learning that detracts from what a console really does in practical use,” he says. “Since installing the Si3, we have received nothing but rave reviews.”
