Stuck between a digital rock and an analogue hard place? Let Jono Buchanan and Andy Legg help you out of it...
Before the days of FireWire and USB-based DAW recording, the word ‘digital’ equated to ‘expensive’ and we were all charged a premium for digitally controlled signal paths and other digital features. However, over the years the cost of technology has fallen quickly so digital hardware is now more affordable than ever. Nevertheless, is a digital mixer right for your needs and budget? Well, hopefully that’s what the next three pages will help you to decide!

Here is a little video showing how Heidelberg based DJ, composer, mix-mastering-engineer and producer Stef An 'LOPAZZ' has integrated the Novation Twitch in to his live setup.
This video really highlights how versatile this portable DJ controller is. I think that the top rated Youtube 'Green Eggs & Ham' - style comment sums it up perfectly:
This guy uses his Twitch on a boat, with a goat, in the rain, on a train, in the dark, in a tree, in a car, in a box, with a fox, in a house, with a mouse, in the garden, here or there. This guy uses his Twitch ANYWHERE!
