The Soundcraft Compact Stagebox CSB16/RJ45/MADI is a 4U Vi/Si extension for Soundcraft sound consoles featuring fan cooling and LED status monitoring. The Compact Stagebox is an extension to the range of Soundcraft digital live sound consoles, and adds a low-cost expansion option to the Soundcraft Vi Series, Soundcraft Si Series, Soundcraft Vi1 and Soundcraft SI Compact.
The Soundcraft Compact Stagebox offers a high density of I/O connections in only 4U of rack space. The modular unit is fully configurable but is offered with a standard configuration of 32 mic/line inputs, eight line outputs, eight channels of AES/EBU outputs and two expansion slots for standard Studer D21m I/O cards.
The D21m is the I/O architecture for Studer as well as Soundcraft digital mixing systems and allows connection to most popular digital formats, including CobraNet, AVIOM A-Net16, Ethersound, ADAT and RockNet. A MADI recording interface can also be fitted to the expansion slots.
It is possible to equip the Compact Stagebox with an additional 16 mic/line input XLR module instead of the output module, providing 48 inputs. In this case, analogue or AES outputs could still be obtained on D-Type connectors via D21m cards fitted to the expansion slots.
