INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing this Soundcraft Si Compact mixer. The Si Compact series
is an incredibly versatile but simple to use digital console optimized for live sound
environments or other situations where fast and clear access to any control or
parameter is needed. Along with many new technologies and features the Si Compact
borrows much from its larger predecessors the Soundcraft Si1, Si2 & Si3 consoles
and Soundcraft Vi series ensuring high reliability, fantastic audio quality and a mature
& comprehensive feature set.
This Quick Start Guide is intended to ‘get you going’ and have a mix up & running in
just a few minutes, it is written with the assumption that the console is starting from
‘factory defaults’. For full details on how to use all the features of your product please
download the full user guide and any supplements from the Si Compact pages of the
web site www.soundcraft.com
NOTE: The packaging, in which your console arrived, forms part of the product and
must be retained for future use.

ADVICE FOR THOSE WHO PUSH THE BOUNDARIES
Although your new console will not output any sound until you feed it signals, it has the
capability to produce sounds which when monitored through an amplifier or headphones
can damage hearing over time.
Please take care when working with your audio — if you are manipulating controls which
you don’t understand (which we all do when we are learning), make sure your monitors
are turned down. Remember that your ears are the most important tool of your trade,
look after them, and they will look after you.
Most importantly — don’t be afraid to experiment to find out how each parameter affects
the sound — this will extend your creativity and help you to get the best from your mixer
and the most respect from your artists and audience.
