Audio Console Design Notes
The author discusses the design of modern functional control consoles aimed at serving the needs of commercial recording studios. Treated are several microphone-mixing consoles and an editing console for tape work. The use of push buttons for echo selection and for the selection of multiple inputs through one or two high-level positions is discussed. Dealt with, too, are dual-channel design (affording either sub-mixing or stereophonic operation in one console) and the employment of individual-channel equalizers for the correction of room acoustics.
