The next avid controller should feature hybrid analog/ digital technology. An analog console with eucon and HDX and other card options allowing use of low latency dsp and analog summing with other card option included. A dedicated computer option as a bundle would also be nice. (I had a Mackie D8B) Scalability from small to large desk with options for built-in conversion or interfaces. A system that can be affordable at start and provide a path of upgrade to Pro level with varying levels of integration.
