Default Re: Control surface/mixer?

A control suface, is just what the name suggests. It has a load of faders and knobs that can control the functions within Pro Tools, usually by MIDI. Strictly speaking, a control surface doesn't handle any audio. A mixer, on the other hand, has several audio inputs and outputs, and can combine / process audio in various ways.
There are some hybrids, like Digi's Control 24 that both handle audio and can control functions within Pro Tools.
Hope this helps [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
