Goodbye Analog Location Audio Console?

In the last four months we've seen Cooper Sound close their doors, and the introduction of no less than three proprietary, recorder specific control surfaces. Can a control surface replace an analog console?

Join us on July 26th as we discuss this question with B. J. Buchalter and Allen Rowand of Metric Halo, as they demonstrate the latest "2d Expanded" versions of their FireWire audio interfaces, and their application to location audio for film and television production. With the release of the "2d" upgrade last month, the MIO 2882 and ULN-2 are transformed into the heart of a digital mixer, complete with digitally controlled pre-amp gain control, eq, compression/limiting, and multiple sends and inserts. Simply add an Apple Macbook and a control surface, and location sound engineers now have an entirely new breed of digital interface, more flexible than any current mixer and recorder on the market today.

Also on hand will be production sound mixer Graham Gardner discussing his experiences mixing the IFC rock-and-roll comedy series "Z-Rock" using BoomCorder, a FireWire interface and a USB control surface.
