One expert gently suggested to me that the problem was that I had built a dedicated control room. He suggested that the future was in having a multi-purpose room. I had to explain that this is what I used to have, and while it was great for just recording myself, when I had a six piece band in for a gig, it sure would have been nice to have them in their own room, and me (and my ears) in another room. While I can appreciate the benefits of a single large multipurpose tracking and mixing room, the simple fact is that control rooms are really a Good Thing when you are working with lots of musicians. Another expert suggested that I get a really long KVM cable and a switch, and put the keyboard, mouse, and video on a crash cart. The cart could be wheeled anywhere in the studio. This wasn't a half-bad suggestion. I've seen guys that work like this, and it's OK, but lacked a certain elegance I was going for. I knew I could do better. Yet another expert told me that my problem was that I was using a big rackmount computer as a recorder. If only I was recording on a notebook computer, then I wouldn't have this problem. I could just carry the notebook whereever I wanted to record. Well, recording on a notebook is fine for light duty work, but the new studio is really a professional affair. I have a rack of mic preamps and mic cabling brought into a patchbay, and a 24 input soundcard to handle all of the I/O, all in a nice big dedicated desk. I didn't want to sacrifice that I/O capability just to get my audio into a notebook computer. Thanks, but no thanks. A fourth expert suggested a control surface. I could put the control surface whereever I wanted, and run the DAW from the surface. By selecting a controller that had a timecode display it would be just like working with ADATs. But this seemed to me like an expensive solution to my problem, and it would have to have a power cable and MIDI or firewire cable. Not all of the software I use is supported by control surfaces. And a good surface is not that portable! Fortunately for me, a solution was readily at hand, and I even already owned everything I needed to make it work. My solution would be elegant - very elegant. I would have a completely wireless remote control. You could be walking around the studio, arm a track, and then hit record. My solution would give me all of the capabilities of my DAW at my fingertips. It would be just like running the software from my desk. I could use whatever software I preferred - the solution was application-agnostic. And my solution scores a perfect 10 on gee-whiz factor. It's so cool it's almost a shame to share it, and if you haven't guessed the answer, you'll slap yourself when you realize how easy it is.
