DiGiGrid from Waves Audio and DiGiCo/Soundtracs suggest the next step. Craft a number of task-specific appliances to string on a network and the configuration possibilities almost defy simple description. Shared I/Os, signal routing, system bridging (even between studio and stage), shared DSP—mix and match to your heart’s content. Digital audio networking is more than just file transfer and storage access. It’s the next evolutionary step.
