Keeping the Workflow Flowing
Del Aguila regularly finds himself jumping between his projects in the span of the day — mixing an artist in the morning and mastering a classical saxophone quartet’s album in the afternoon. Having the PATCH System at the ready has helped del Aguila streamline his projects and easily transition from one project to the next.
“Every day when I turn on my equipment, all I have to do is queue up the PATCH APP on my computer and everything is ready to go,” he explained. “This is huge because I’m switching projects all the time, so the PATCH System is a really great thing to have.”
Additionally, del Aguila said the ability to “cut the cables” has been key to systematizing his workflow.
“I’m really happy to have it because I really hated the cables that come with regular patchbays,” del Aguila said. “It’s something I’ve been working with for many, many years. When I was an assistant, I was doing a lot of patching, and now as an engineer, I still hate it. Also, I wear glasses, and I like the PATCH APP because it’s intuitive and, contrary to patchbays where everything is really small, I can see everything with the PATCH APP clearly right in front of me and check that everything is in the right place very easily.”
