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!

Analogue Warmth

Analogue Warmth | Show Production 279 | Scoop.it
Analogue warmth seems to be the Holy Grail in these digital days. But what is it, why does it hold such appeal, and how can you use it to enhance your recordings?
Andrew James Monroe's insight:

An article about the nuances of analog recording as opposed to digital from a respected website. I agree with the author there is a certain purity to analog audio.
