Analog Vs. Digital Sound Boards - How to Decide | Acoustics By Design Blog | Recording Arts | Scoop.it

Even though we still use analog we also primarily use digital sounds. We have updated analong techniqes . Knowing which system to use for recording is key for recording arts. I would personally get both just to be diverse with the different ways of recording using different types of boards.

This article concentrates on three main factors when decided if analog or digital should be utilized. Price, Flexability, and Ease of Use.

Here are some pros for each format. Dollar for dollar, digital tends to be less expensive. However, for about a $7,500 entry-level console, the analog should be less expensive. In a digital console, patching signals and making presets is much easier. In an analog setup, the whole board can be seen at once.

 

Here are a few cons for each format. High end analog tends to be more expensive, and the signals and presets are not as flexible. Less expensive digital gear tends to be less user friendly. However, the size of an analog board my be scary to newcomers.

This gives you a good look at analog vs digital consoles. It basically boils down what you can afford, what you are looking to get out of your equipment and what you plan on doing with your equipment.

In this article, Mikel Rouse explains his opinion on why people think analog sounds better. A pro for digital is that the frequency range is not limited. A pro for analog is that people think it sounds better because of 70 years of humans being used to the frequencies an analog turntable can produce.

A con for digital is that you loose information because the sound is just numbers that approzimate the real sonund of analog. Digital may be less desired because it does not roll off the high and low frequencies, giving the sound a percieved harshness.

Shaun Schapira's curator insight, September 14, 2014 9:27 PM

I like this article because it talks about the differences between recordings and the distribution of the recordings, and what consumers like to listen to. This explains why people may enjoy vinyl music more because of the way the songs were recorded and the fact that when they were pressed onto vinyl that the low and high end frequencies roll off slightly, therefore making the music sound more "rounded."

kevin franklin's insight:

There are Pros and Cons to this. Pros is access to the a wide range of songs faster, and more efficient. Cons - you dont have the hard copy of ownership. More of DLC. This also hits on the marketing sales. Dealing with stats that states Hard copy physical copy, and electronically mp3 format song sales as well.

This article shows how many people are willing to pay for the convenience of digital versus the quality of analog. As a pro, White eplains that she would be able to build a digital collection of media very quickly. As a con, she did not get really into music during the physical phase of albums and has little desire to since the convenience of digital is a higher priority.

According to this article, one major con of the popularity of digital audio is that musicians are getting paid less than what they used to be paid. However, a pro  is that this makes distribution easier.
