Yes, you head correct. SoundCraft Series 1S. The sixteen channel mixer that is 30 years old. I just got one from my friend who just had it sitting in storage. I'm too poor to go and buy a new 16 channel mixer. This is 10 times bigger, but I don't mind. Anyway, I said he could have the box (metal case), but then its unprotected. Would it be safe (not a fire hazzard) if I built a wooden box? Or is the best idea to just leave it in the original case. What's neat is that it says 'National Broadcasting Company' I guess it used to be owned by NBC! I'm new to recording and I was going to use the mixer to run the mics on my drumset into the fostex mr-8 digital recorder that I have. What other uses does a mixer have? Sorry If I posted this in the wrong forum. I'm new to this site.
