Keith Watson, Marketing Director for Soundcraft Studer, noted: "The Studer Vista series has earned respect from audio professionals worldwide. In the development of Vista 9 we focused on further improving the user interface with enhanced ergonomics and uniquely useful features, especially obvious with the new TFT-based metering system and FaderGlow™ implementation. Our design philosophy is all about making life easier for the engineers and producers; freeing them of the mental mapping many console surfaces require them to do and allowing them to focus solely on their creativity and making better sounding mixes."
The Studer Vista 9 is a state-of-the-art digital mixing console with the exclusive Vistonics™ user interface and TFT-based meters that provide a clear, easily understandable display of signal levels and channel assignments.
The Vista 9 offers advanced features such as the TFT meters that can display anything from mono to 7.1-channel signals; a HISTORY mode that records events in the audio path of each channel and enables the operator to review them up to 30 seconds after the event has occurred; seamless integration with other Studer products via Studer RELINK network technology; and the patented FaderGlow™feature that illuminates each fader in one of eight assignable colors to provide the operator with an instant overview of channel groupings – which is especially useful during live production.
