   Thanks to a very logical layout, you'll be able to start using this mixer within minutes rather than hours. There are up/down/left/right cursor keys which can be used to output MIDI Machine Control commands to your multitrack(s), as well as a large dial and alphanumeric keypad for entering data or values as required. The unit ships standard with 200 snapshot memory locations.

There are silky smooth 100mm faders, above which are channel on, solo and fader flip buttons. When you push the Select button on any channel, you automatically access the centralized EQ/pan/assign/dynamics/delay/aux section. Then touch any equalizer knob and the large 320x240 backlit display automatically shows you that channel's EQ settings. You can do the same thing to view each channel's dynamics settings. Both the EQ and dynamics sections have a library of 50 settings you can instantly access with just a single touch.

   Internal processing in the WR-DA7 is 32-bit, allowing for a fantastic 192dB of dynamic range, while the mic/line inputs are equipped with 24-bit, 128x oversampling A/D converters and 20-bit conversion on the analog aux sends and returns. Analog master outs are on XLR connectors, while the main stereo digital outs are XLRs switchable between AES/EBU and S/PDIF. On the back of the unit are Word Clock in and out, a 9-pin RS-422 serial port, DIN serial port for connection to a PC, MIDI ins and outs, and a D15-sub output for the optional meter bridge.

   Our final digital console is the Korg 16•8RC. Since there's an entire story over there on the left, we won't even begin to tell you what it does. Suffice it to say that we've only scratched the surface of what all these machines are capable of — an entire issue of Sweet Notes wouldn't give us enough space. All you really need to know is this: Digital mixers offer incredible sound quality plus automation that will make your mixing sessions nearly effortless, allowing you to concentrate on the music. There are sure to be other digital mixers being unveiled on a regular basis, so please call us for your special pricing on the unit that's best for your specific needs and budget.
