@ceilingcat - Digital does make a lot of things better and easier. However, I hear that for digital audio mixers there are a few problems created by digital mixers that aren't present in analogy mixers.
One of these problems is delay. When the sound engineer makes an adjustment, it can take a few milliseconds to take affect. If a recording artist is listening to themselves in headphones, it can be very unpleasant. They end up hearing themselves in real time and then hearing the delay in the headphones!
However, I think the digital audio mixers make up for it with all the different features they have. You can do create a lot of special effects with digital audio mixers you can't with analog!
