What is a Digital Mixer?

Imagine having all of the features and capabilities of an analog mixer, but at your fingertips. Imagine telling audio engineers in the 1970s that one day, they’ll be able to mix productions of all kinds on a screen the size of a placemat. Sounds like a utopian future, right? Welcome to 2019. Whether it’s a small-scale home recording or the headlining band at an outdoor festival, you can be confident that Sam Ash’s array of digital mixers gives you power and control in the palm of your hands.

Long story short, the difference between a digital mixer and an analog mixer stems from audio signal processing functions. An analog mixer does this organically in original analog form, while a digital mixer is processed and/or converted.

Let’s Get Digital, Digital

Digital mixers have grown rapidly in both popularity and usage over the past decade. With an increased demand for DIY productions and individualized workflows, digital mixers have put a premium on personal studios and their convenience in any setting. Unlike the analog days, mix settings and adjustments can be saved and recalled at a later date, which proves especially useful when tackling multiple projects at once.

In addition to these features, digital mixers are considered much better suited for noise-resistance, and feature techniques simply not possible through analog technology like audio ducking. Many digital mixers on the market today are also travel-friendly, and can be taken on the go for gigs across the globe.

Maximizing Your Mixer

You can rest assured knowing that digital mixers aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Much like any other piece of gear, a big point of emphasis when looking for your ideal digital mixer is figuring out the intent of your production. Home studios, live performances, coffee shop venues – there is an option out there for just about anyone looking to embrace the utopian future.

Brands like Behringer bring the power of a mixing board to your tablet or iPad. Another option for those looking to keep their work compact and minimal, QSC offers boards small enough to go anywhere, while offering full mix control and functions. If you prefer the look and feel of a classic analog board, while staying true to the digital era, hybrid options by brands like Presonus and Tascam may be something that you’d find useful and easy-to-use.

Sam Ash supplies customers with digital mixers from elite level brands and companies such as Allen & Heath, Soundcraft, Yamaha, and more. Still pondering about your transition from analog? Give us a call at 1-800-472-6274 or chat with an expert online today.
