Product Design: PD1 - The Secrets of Analog Design

Navigating the secrets of analog can be both frustrating and rewarding. In the design of an analog product there are many different ways to create the design. The choices that are made determine the sound, manufacturability, and cost of the device. With clever choices one can create a product with a unique and desirable sound while controlling the undesired factors such as cost, manufacturability issues, and reliability. We will look at a number of choices to create the same function and how the choices will affect the sonics of the device. In the market these choices can result in a product the fits the studio to the Concert Tour. What we work to avoid is a product that has so-what characteristics. Unique circuits have unique sounds; in this workshop the panel will explore some of the mystery and help attendees better understand the choices the options they have in designing in the analog domain.
