This Scoop talks about if digital or analog consoles are better for a sound engineer. 

The writer gives accurate information about both of the consoles, but he did seem a little biased while describing them. 

Omar Ramirez's curator insight, September 14, 2014 5:34 PM

This article basically states an engineers opinion on how digital consoles have taken over analog consoles in the professional world. He talks about his experiences with both and how digital mixers have been around long enough to be reliable.

Taylor Johannes's curator insight, September 8, 2015 9:20 AM

I have always believed that analog consoles are better than digital, just because it's something I've always worked with and that digital can not be trusted when running live sound. But after reading this article, my views have changed. It turns out, I just wasn't that educated on digital consoles and by learning more about them, I see how digital is better than analog. Digital has many more features that provide the user convenience like the CentraLogic feature and saving your "scene". 

I think people in the audio arts industry should read this article even if you already have an opinion on which console you prefer. Who knows, your opinion may even change!

This article gives a small explanation on the works of live sound, between instruments and the live sound engineer. The pro of the article gives a great description on the job of the engineer and the contribution to a band; the cons are that it doesn’t go depth on the use of sound, microphones, stage, and all the other jobs of the Live Sound Engineer.

The TM Array is a innovation to the live sound environment even thought having the subs hanging over the drummer is kinda scary.It really helps in round venues.

Sydney Tavares's curator insight, March 9, 2013 3:30 PM

Wow. This is insane! The idea is pretty much awesome.

Taylor Johannes's curator insight, September 10, 2015 12:11 PM

For starters, playing in a round is fairly unusual for a band. Typically, there is a stage in the front of the audience and of course the speakers are too the side of the stage to project the sound into the audience. So with a "round", the band is in the center of the venue with the audience surrounding all sides of the band. What is really difficult about this setup is getting the sound to every corner of the room. But with the latest innovation of the TM Array is that it can project the music in every direction and it actually sound good. 

If you're a professional that is designing the setup of a huge venue, I would recommend them reading this article and learning more about how the TM Array works and projects it's sound versus regular subwoofers.
