32x8 console, including flightcase.
The Venue is a fully modular 8 bus mixer providing unique versatility for live
mixing, whether it's in a medium-sized theatre or concert hall, a conference
auditorium or church.
The console provides full 8 bus muting and six independent auxiliary sends, and
both Mono and Stereo Input offer the option of four mute groups. This allows
the status of each channel to be controlled by four master mute busses for rapid
resetting of the console during a live performance.
The Stereo Input includes a further innovation - a Stereo Width control, enabling
the width of a stereo image to be continuously varied. This is a unique feature on
a console of this type, and is ideal for enhancing theatre sound effects.
The Venue series comprises a range of input module, output module and frame
options that lets you configure the console for a wide variety of applications, and
to alter the layout very easily if required. The only constraint on the selection and
positioning of modules is that any console must have a master module (2 channels
width) which must be fitted at the right hand of the console, and that any group
output modules fitted have to be positioned immediately to the left of this.
Should you wish to replace or add extra modules, please contact your
authorised Soundcraft dealer, who can supply the modules and change the
configuration without voiding the warranty.
The output section of the Venue has been carefully designed to offer the
maximum number of independent outputs in a compact mixer. The Dual Matrix
module provides superb versatility for theatre applications, allowing additional
output mixes to be created from signals present at the group and mix outputs, or
from external submixers. A full 8 x 8 matrix is created by using only four
modules, although any number can be specified.
The Dual Group/EQ module packs two independently controlled output groups
into one module, each with a 3 band sweep EQ section. For even greater
flexibility the Dual Group/Stereo Return module contains all the features
required for generating subgroups and stereo effects returns, and the stereo return
section is ideal for bringing in additional stereo sources without taking up
valuable input modules.
The Venue is supplied in four frame sizes - 16, 24, 32 or 40 channels. A
removeable overbridge is available as an option on the three large frame sizes,
and can be fitted with either moving coil VU or PPM meters.
