The consumer market is beginning to exert its influence on the pro-audio business, and it's not all good news, reports Chris Edwards. Mixing studios are becoming a strange technological admixture of the old and the new. Alongside computer-controlled mixing desks and virtual faders sliding up and down on screen by themselves, replacing the engineers that would once have slid around on chairs to make a fade at the right time, are pieces of vintage hardware. Studios will often have one or more Pultec equalisation (EQ) units to fine-tune the balance of mixes or an Urei 1176 compressor to massage a guitar solo or vocal into shape.
