Soundcraft added the Si2 to its Si family of digital consoles as a smaller partner to the Si3. The Si2 comes in a smaller footprint than its larger counterpart, and has 48 microphone inputs mapped on 24 faders, while the Si3 has 64 inputs. Company officials said it is well suited for installations where its footprint is key, such as theaters, houses of worship, and smaller tour sound systems.

The Si2, like the Si3, has four dedicated stereo line channels, four dedicated FX returns from the four stereo Lexicon FX processors, eight balanced insert sends, and eight balanced insert returns. Si2 comes complete with 24 group/aux busses available at all times, eight matrix busses, and a full complement of monitor talkback and main bus outputs. Every input and output has its own dedicated input (output) socket on the back of the console.

Like the Si3, the Si2 uses a combination of rotary encoders and OLED screens on every channel so the engineer mixes at source without recourse to a central screen, an interface welcomed by many engineers since the Si3's launch last year, says the company. Four assignable on-board Lexicon effect engines supplement four stereo inputs to provide a powerful mix package in a width of 1.4 meters.

The Si2 has a list price of $25,943.
