Most of us is always learning the new technologies, reading up on new products and improving our skills. So in that regard, what do you think is going to be the next big thing? The technology that everyone shouldnow in a couple of years, but is ready for nerding about right now?Digital protocols (avb, etc) and general network technology comes to mind. So do new DSP technology in line array systems. Any ideas from you guys? And if something does come to mind, what should one read to get a better understanding of thatspecific thing? Looking forward to your answers
The physics of sound are not going to change. Digital has brought new technologies into the audio engineering fold. So yes to be an audio engineer today you need to understand networking, digital interfaces, CODEC's etc.So my point would be fill in gap in your core knowledge. Once you have seen enough gear you develop a process for learning new gear.I am fond of saying it's all the same only different.
Live bands playing to audiences, all wearing good quality headphones and a radio receiver. No FOH speakers at all.Like all of my brilliant ideas, this has probably already been done.Steve.
Soon we're going to see a generation of sound engineers who have never cut their teeth on analogue first. I think that's when things will get really interesting! After all, most digital consoles in some way or another try to replicate an analogue console. Part of that is because the signal flow through the channel strip makes sense, but part of that is because of familiarity. Once you start getting a bunch of people designing consoles who don't see or need that link, that's when we may see some new and interesting ideas on the console market. Helium filled speaker cabinets would be a good call, or quadcopter flying points.
