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.

Ale Dussan's curator insight, March 9, 2013 4:21 PM

Here you can find a great example of how the Sound Tech Support of Meyer Sound supported Metallica in their tour, the ups and downs that they had, and how they overcame everything.

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.

I had a friend who tried mixing a live show with his iPad. It was cool watching him do it during rehearsal, of course when it came to the actual show, it wasn't working with the console...

when mixing with some device you can see the differents in actual show ,some cons is the programs and devices should be a little more simpler. Some pros is that you can learn how to mix with different programs

Analog Vs. Digital Sound Boards - How to Decide | Acoustics By Design Blog

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

For me, it's hard to decide on which to choose. As far as digital consoles, like it says in the article, they allow you to have presets for any show you do, which is something that I find very useful, especially for time when I have done theatre productions. You can also save those presets on a USB drive and use it on another console, which is great, especially if you're touring. However, I've used analog more than digital and it's safe to say I am very comfortable with it. The article made a good point saying that with analog consoles, all of the channels and settings are visible. On a digital console, you're constantly flipping through screen which can be a hassel. In the future, I do see myself using digital consoles, but I think it would depend on the show. - Sydney Tavares

This showing you the difference form analog and digital in there areas. 

Steven Blake Lawrence's curator insight, September 14, 2014 2:39 PM

This article is very interesting coming from a person that has manly worked on an analog for five years and very little experience with a digital bored it is shocking to see that other individuals feel the same way that i did comparing the two.

Omar Ramirez's curator insight, September 14, 2014 5:46 PM

This article explains about the top 3 factors when deciding which console to purchase. The factors are ease of use, price, and flexibility.

I'm confortable with analog but I think digital is the new thing. Those digital consoles have some awesome qualities.

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!
