Soundcraft ViSi Remote 3.5.6 is an iOS application that allows remote control of Soundcraft Vi, Si Compact, Si Performer, Si Expression and Si Impact mixing consoles wirelessly from your iPad device using no additional hardware other than a wireless access router connected to the Harman HiQnet® Ethernet port of the console.
With ViSi Remote you are free to roam your venue and adjust mixes and other audio parameters directly from the iPad.
• Optimise the front of house mix from anywhere in the room
• Set mic gains and 48V from the stage
• Adjust monitor levels while standing next to the artist
• Adjust channel strip settings remote from the console
• Use to extend the fader count of an existing control surface
• Use in standalone mode for familiarisation with console functions
• Control a network of consoles (e.g. FOH and Monitor)
• Provide a separate surface for DMX functionality (Si Performer only)
• Allow multiple users on the same console to control their own mixes
• Have a global metering overview or “meter bridge” as an extension of the console

Ratings and Reviews
Harman needs to respond to us users
Ever since updating to si impact firmware 2.0 our venue has experienced freezes with the meters on a very consistent basis as well as occasional connection losses to the board. This makes the remote unusable in a live sound situation. Very disappointing that this hasn't been immediately fixed. Two different replies from soundcraft themselves one stating they were well aware of the glitch and the second denying there was any issues, then admitting it after email exchanges.
Additionally, mute group access is a must with a remote app where you are working a good distance from the stage during set up and use mutes to keep iPod music going while dialing in mixes on stage. Also at least tap tempo for delay fx would be smart.
And mainly where is the RTA? Almost every other mixer app has one. Why a $500 board and app and not a $2500?
Soundcraft ... listen to your users... we buy and use your products not your in house engineers and programmers!
Works well with newer iPads
I’ve been using this app on my SiExpression3 for several years. Metering was slow, sometimes my adjustments would not take on the console, when I had 2 additional users mixing their own monitors it would freeze on the oldest iPad in our group. Last year I bought a new iPad and router with mumimo support. What a difference. Metering is very smooth now. Even when I had 53 inputs over the holidays. I have 3 guys mixing their own iems on visi listen, and me using visi remote. Works great now. STILL the app lacks basics...NO MUTE GROUPS. NO ACCESS to ROUTING or other menu functions. Yes, I’ve worked on A&E dLives, SQs, QLs, Yamahas, plenty of others that have better apps. But for the price point, this works for me. If Soundcraft would open up access to the system settings and add a MUTE group feature in the app, I would give it 5stars.
Works OK when it works!
Works pretty good until about 15 minutes in, then the meters stop working. Fader controls and a few other things keep working. I thought it was me making a mistake with the setup but after reading the reviews I realized I’m not the only one who has this problem. Bug fix, Soundcraft please? This is serious setback for a board that otherwise works well for me. Hope it gets fixed so I don’t having to consider swapping it out for another brand.
