BigVCA does away with the mixing desk

Sound engineer George Dyson has designed a device to bypass the mixing desk for live shows. George began by observing that a digital audio workstation should be able to process multiple audio signals better than a more complex setup with a mixer as the output device. BigVCA is an analog interface that enables sound engineers to control a sound card's audio outputs through minimalist high-end electronic circuitry while optimizing signal quality and SNR. For the moment, George has built 10 pre-production units, but plans to scale up production soon. A handful of sound engineers working on contemporary dance and theatre shows have reported favorably after using the box on tour for a couple of years.
