“The combination of the way you can map everything to the surface and the surface is so flexible—it can become whatever you need it to be. It’s quite revolutionary the way you can just bring anything up you want onto the encoders and custom fader banks, including plug-ins. Nobody else is doing that as impressively or as effectively. When you look at the power of it, our mix position is one of the smallest on Broadway for a full-blown musical the size of A Bronx Tale. We take up eight seats, and that includes the sound operator and the rest of the equipment—production absolutely loves that!”
