SSE reports strong demand for Soundcraft

29 February 2008

UK- SSE Audio Group reports increasing success with its four-strong fleet of Soundcraft Vi6 digital mixing desks. According to hire project manager, Miles Hillyard, Soundcraft's mixing platform is proving increasingly popular with their top tier sound engineers - particularly for its ease of use, warmth of sound and compact size.

Already this year SSE has supplied sound engineer Huw Richards with a pair of linked Vi6's for the massive Liverpool City of Culture Opening Ceremony, while Will Doyle, monitor engineer for the Arctic Monkeys has been piloting it as his board of choice, as has Kasabian's monitor man, Mark 'Yogi' Novissimo.

Liverpool police estimated that 38,000 people had watched the People's Opening outside St George's Hall, when Ringo Starr performed his new song Liverpool 8 on top of the building. "The main reason we needed two Vi6s on duty was because we couldn't get enough inputs locally, and we needed the optical multi," explained Hillyard.

Huw Richards teamed up with SSE system tech/crew chief Nick Pain, while the event was production managed by Simon Barrington, working on behalf of Liverpool Culture Company.
