Outside the studio building


This was my first experience with the Axia digital audio system and with the PowerStation units. Did we have any problems? Sure we did. Most of them, however, turned out to be operator (that would be me) error, which was quickly pointed out by the folks at Axia. We had the usual logistical problems that occur when studios are completely stripped down and rebuilt, but all things considered, it went smoothly with no dead air or missed traffic.

To see the control room live, visit the WDDH website at houndcountry.com and view the studio cam.
