Brief Descriptions

It’s always the same thing but different.

Mixers come in all shapes, sizes and can offer a vast variety of features.
The experience of working with different consoles will change drastically from console to console.

The consoles available are all have their differences but share very common features. We encourage that whatever is learned on one console to be practiced on another!

An important thing to keep in mind when selecting a console, is that it’s common for some to be “intimidated or overwhelmed” by the sight of all channels or controls. As confident as one may appear, their retention capabilities might suffer at the expense of overloading of physical appearances.
