Why your next console should be as difficult to hear as it is easy to operate.
The studio is more complex and less forgiving.
Electronic production techniques using MIDI and SMPTE svnc require more control than a “wire with gain” can provide. But as functions and components accumulate, the console’s signal path has grown more complex, and its audio performance has suffered. On analog recordings, higher levels of crusstalk, noise and intermodulation were an acceptable price for additional control. On digital multitrack, however, these flaws become glaringlv obvious.
