The article reports on the advantages of digital solutions for fast simple sound system control. Improving the sound of one's live rig has never been easier. However, digital signal processing systems for loudspeaker control offer recallable input/output delay, system EQ, speaker-protection limiting and other features for easy-access control. Many of these all-in-one digital controllers replicate long-existing components such as compressors, delays and EQs for each crossover in a system, but that's where simplicity comes in. Having control in a single box--rather than multiple units--can offer fast, streamlined control.
