The Studer Vista 1 is an ‘all in one’ console with the control surface containing the audio DSP and a comprehensive set of I/O. The recently introduced Studer Vista 1 BE (Black Edition) mixer is a hardware revision of the original silver Vista 1, with an identical set of features but at available at a lower price.  Vista 1 BE is available in two sizes (22 fader and 32 fader) and with an optional meterbridge.

As standard Vista 1 mixers have a DSP engine capable of processing approximately 140 audio channels (combined number of input and output channels). The standard I/O included 32 mic/line inputs, 32 analogue output, Madi and multichannel AES/EBU I/O. A comprehensive set of GPIO ports allow Vista 1 mixers to be integrated with studio automation and control systems.  The DSP engine can be quickly reconfigured for different task using the supplied mixer presets and more elaborate customised processing configurations can created during commissioning. The mixer is capable of mixing and monitoring in stereo and 5.1 surround sound.

System expansion is supported via the Vista 1’s dual width I/O expansion slot.  This slot is compatible with Studer D21m and D23m I/O cards, allowing a remote stagebox to be attached or direct interfacing to numerous audio distribution formats, such as Dante, Madi, Cobranet, Livewire, ADAT, TDIF, SDI and others.

The patented Vistonics™ user interface with 40 on-screen rotary knobs, is identical to that of the larger and more sophisticated Vista mixers. All Studer Vista mixers run the same operating system and support the same set of standard features.  Anyone experienced with mixing on a Studer will immediately be familiar with the Vista 1. The Vista 1 is resilient with redundant power supplies and real time status monitoring of hardware.


The new Studer Vista 1 is a transportable digital mixing mixer designed music, broadcast, live and production studios. This makes the Vista 1 ideal when space is restricted, such as in OB and ENG vans, small studios, or for hire companies that need a powerful mixer that is easily flightcased and transported.  For example, the 22 fader Vista 1 is less than 1.2m wide and capable of handling over 100 input channels.
