http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2007/05/30/nmicro130.xml I saw this article about Microsoft's new Surface Computers. Basically it is a large 30 inch touch screen that can be touched in more than one place at a time. Do you think this could be the future of digital audio mixers? A large touchscreen with an audio console workspace. It would be simple to make virtual knobs that you press down on then slide left to right, or up and down, then lift up on to make adjustments, and virtual faders could be easy to make also. If they could make sure they are very visible in sunlight, and were larger than 30 inches, I don't see a big reason why this couldn't be a future audio console. It could be quite flexible if you think about it. You could drag the middle of the console around if you wanted. You could have a dynamics menu that pops up when you hold for it with one hand, then make adjustments with the other. The same could be for a parametric EQ. Boards could even be made that realize when feedback is going on and make a panic button on the bottom you can hit to let the board work it out or something. It would tick professionals off, but amateurs would certainly love it. So the question is do you think this could be the future for digital audio boards? Audio people seem to be into tangible things so I don't see the industry embracing it overnight, I'm just wondering if anyone here thinks it could be the future for audio boards.
