Previously we applied this designation to “small and mini” models; however, the market is evolving so quickly and dynamically that attempts to put together “like” groups of line array modules under a precisely defined criteria is fast becoming a thing of the past.

Plus, there’s no remembering compressor or EQ settings, let alone values for gear that has less than descriptive front panels. So, what’s an engineer… View this post
