Originally posted by the 13 year old engineer most times(for live) anilog mixers will be easier to work. like if the guitarest tell you to put some hi's and low's in his mix ,on a digital board you would have to hit eq,then hit,select,then find the channel,and then hit hi(you get the idea)
Originally posted by David Klausner Actually, with an ergonomically designed console (the Sony DMXR100 comes to mind), once you get used to it, you can actually access things like EQ's more quickly than with an analog board...
Originally posted by Ed Belknap Actually you have to find the channel *before* you hit "Select"...But when the guitarist tells you to put some highs & lows in his mix you have to find which channel is the guitarist's, regardless of whether it's an analog or digital board. Once you've found the guitar channel, you either A) identify that channel's particular dedicated and unique EQ knobs and then tweak (analog); or B) hit that channel's Select button and tweak the only EQ knobs on the whole board (digital). There really aren't any more mental steps in one than the other; it's just that they are distinctly *different* steps, and old habits die hard.
