    As explained, I have a nice clean Soundcraft Ghost 24 with Meter Bridge, and that old Transport Automation Section. It uses MMC Midi Machine Control to control any recorder so equipped. It also has automated channel mute, if I remember correctly.

    It's been in a box in storage since 2000, so forgive any errors in memory.

    But I want to sell it now (I live in Thailand) so I doubt if anyone would want to pay international shipping. But that's not why I'm here.

    My question is I'd like to be able to tell prospective buyers if there is any use for this automation section, or is it just a dead weight, useless dinosaur? Can you do anything else creative with it? (I can hear the jokes coming Can it be used to run any modern recording systems (stand-alone or computer based? Perhaps a special interface is needed? If used in a live situation, can it be used for operating a lighting program.

    I'd like to tell a buyer at least something positive. I mean it's a lousy place to set your beer!

    Tell em it has this feature and let them decide if thats what they need. Honestly, its not that great of a selling point as opposed the boards excellent EQ, really good mic pres and extensive routing. this a way better board than any Mackie.
