MusingMuso Posted February 12, 2008 Share Posted February 12, 2008 Having played quite a wide variety of consoles, I wonder if we could collectively identify the best we have come across, but from different aspects. I would suggest three main categories as a starter, as follows:- 1) The best design 2) The most ergonomic 3) The most beautiful However, we also need sub-categories, because there are obvious differences in actual layout. For example, there are conventional draw-stop consoles, less conventional draw-stop consoles (such as those by Norman & Beard with push-buttons below each horizontally disposed stop for "on"), ampitheatre style (Cavaille-Coll etc), horseshoe style, central european left side only stops/tabs, stop-key consoles, illuminated stop type consoles etc etc. With all the primary listing categories, and the sub-categories, we could end up with thousands of answers. Perhaps we should each restrict ourselves to a favourite five, and then categorise them accordingly. This way, we should be able to build up a picture of what a majority would prefer in a console. I'll hold back for the moment, but I do have my favourites. MM Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
