    As the industry increasingly moves in a digital direction depending more on touch screens than faders and on menus and layers instead of every function being at one’s fingertips, mix engineers like Rob Mailman—who need to move fast and are accustomed to the dedicated control of analog—are searching for digital consoles that offer ease-of-navigation as well as outstanding sound quality.
