My home studio is built around NewTek’s TriCaster Mini. I can’t overstate how important it is. It is my control room.
As with most computer applications, knowing how to operate it was pretty easy. I’m a tech envelope stretcher. It’s when you get down into the weeds that it gets a little more complex.
The TriCaster comes with the manual as a PDF file. I’ve tried to read as much as I could.
Still, I didn’t feel I was getting all that was there. I decided to see if a printed manual would make a difference.
As far as I can tell NewTek doesn’t print manuals, so I went online and found a printer who would… all 529 pages. Printed in black and white the shipping more expensive than the finished manual.
I thought I had explored the manual thoroughly before. Seeing it in print has me convinced otherwise.
I understand why tech companies do this. Why spend money on a manual which will never be opened?
Trust me. This was money well spent. Think of it as upgrading Geoff.
