For the first time, hear them side-by-side, compare the features and decide for yourself.
Talk to industry experts about their products and get hands-on with the gear.
The aim of the Showcase is to give you the opportunity to hear all the most popular digital consoles side-by-side, and to have the chance to get hands on to find out which console suits you best.
The consoles being presented are:
- Soundcraft Performer Series
- Allen & Heath GLD series
- Behringer X32
- Midas M32
- Yamaha QL series
There will be a double blind listening session where we will play a variety of source materials through each console highlighting gain and eq boosts across each console and everybody will have forms they fill out to assess what they are hearing.
You won’t know what console you are hearing, (they'll simply be called A,B,C,D,E,), so you’ll be dependent on your ears and not biased by assumption.
After the listening session, you will be able to come up and go through the consoles hands-on, and listen to them with your headphones. On the night we will reveal which console was which, and we will tabulate the results and put them on the website within 24hrs so you can see how your impressions lined up with others.
While the night is primarily about the consoles, some suppliers will be bringing other relevant gear to the showcase, product areas such as personal monitoring, recording, Ipad and offline software demos, remote preamps, expansions cards, other related consoles etc.
