The Advantages of Digital Sound Console

- Oct 17, 2018-

The key to digital mixing consoles is digital. In summary, digital mixing consoles have the following unique features and features:

1. The increase of audio processing link unit

Some digital mixers have units such as delays, voltage limiters, and the like in their shunts and/or mains. Such settings are not achievable with a typical analog mixer, which is equivalent to adding many peripherals. The device is connected from the disconnected jack of the mixer, which makes the configuration of the sound system simple and functional.

2. The database function of the audio processing link

In the audio processing links such as equalization, compression limit, and in-caine effects, there are many existing standard processing mode programs that can be called according to different sound sources, occasions, and signal characteristics. Although this is similar to the way of a fool camera, it should not be completely copied, because different program sources and scenes always have their own particularities, and it is impossible to do the same, but the processing mode provides a general treatment method, which can be adjusted on this basis. In addition, the database is equivalent to the role of textbooks and materials, providing parameters for various processing modes.

3. Memory storage for each tuning link

In the local, equalization, pressure limit, and in-flight effects, there is a certain user program space, which can be used to store various user-adjusted processing parameters; in general, some digital mixers have scenes memory storage program space. It can be used to store the current state of various parameters including equalization, pressure limit, in-flight effect, and split level, total path level, etc., so there can be a relatively stable tuning standard for some fixed programs that often perform. There are also digital mixers that can set the split and/or push transition time at different positions of the two scenes during the two storage scene transitions, which can produce automatic fade in and fade out effects.

4. Flexible combination exchange of various links inside the mixer

This type of function is quite different in different mixers, but it is realized by flexible processing of digital signals. Such as the change of the level indication point, the two-input signal exchange path, the direct grouping and mute grouping of the split, the tuning control state of one branch, and the copying of other branches.

5. Multi-functional and intuitive display

Digital mixers usually have a larger display to display different control interfaces, gives various status parameters, and visualize the pattern display.

6. Digital audio equipment directly connected to the digital

The digital mixing console can be connected to the audio equipment according to the conventional analog signal input and output mode, and can also be directly connected to the digital audio equipment by means of the optical cable and the data line directly inputting and outputting digital signals. Because it is a digital signal, although only one fiber optic cable can achieve multiple inputs or outputs, the input and output channels are expanded.

7. Can achieve MIDI function

Digital mixers can implement MIDI functions, so-called MIDI is the digital interface (MIDI) of electronic instruments. The original meaning of MIDI is only the interconnection between electronic instruments and electronic instruments and computers. Now it also includes the connection between digital audio equipment and electronic instruments and computers. Through the connection, the MIDI digital interface is used to transmit the keyboard key information reflecting the parameters of the music, the timbre, the rhythm, the chord, and the control information between the devices, thereby realizing the tasks of composing, multi-track sound synthesis and the like. Some professionals who use analog mixers often feel that they are not comfortable; because one of the big disadvantages of digital mixers is that some function adjustments are not reflected directly on the panel like analog consoles. Some keys are in different states. Different functions have to be realized through the conversion interface. Some functions have a calling process, and different types of digital mixing consoles have different functions in the calling operation. Therefore, problems can occur if you are not familiar with this type of digital mixer during live tuning.
