    This year is the tipping point for digital consoles in regional and festival sound reinforcement. Discussions of sound quality aside, the benefits of digital consoles – consistency, repeatability, recall and automation – force users to adopt the new way and the advantage it brings to live events where the same console is not dragged from one gig to the next.
