With a new location, new studio, new control rooms and edit suites, the need for new (digital) equipment was apparent.

As a member of the committee called upon to select a console for the new studio, Andy Gargul of TFO had a laundry list of criteria. “We really wanted to stay away from any console that was heavily ‘menu-driven’ or had master soft knobs in one area for more
