Just realized something, at least I think I did

To all those who recorded analog, you likely remember ye control rooms of olde, where the center of command and control was the console.

You typically had a tape remote called something like autolocator to easily reach tape controls whilst seated at the console.

I think we would be making a mistake to follow that paradigm, indeed I think that's part of the reason control surfaces haven't been as well received as they might have been.

I'm suggesting we have to assign our notion of center of command and control to the DAW itself, not the external console controllers.

Seems simple and obvious, but changing my perspective thusly is causing me to think differently about this project.

A bit subtle, does anyone else agree, or does it seem like I'm just blowing smoke ?
