This paper explores the use of digital and analogue mixing consoles in the recording studio over a single drum kit recording session. Previous research has examined contingent learning, problem-solving and collaborative learning within this environment. However, whilst there have been empirical investigations into the use of computer-based software and interaction around and within computers, this has not taken into consideration the use of complex recording apparatus. A qualitative case study approach was used in this investigation. 30 hours of video data was captured and transcribed. A preliminary analysis of the data shows that there are differences between the types of problems encountered by learners when using either an analogue or digital mixing console.
