    Tale of the Tape Sims.

    hey y'all figured I'd put this out there. I been filling in holes in my software for quite some time and I got onto the task of tape sims/saturation plugs. I ended up getting 3, heavy, medium, and subtle. Now I'm not really sure if these sound like tape, and I'm not concerned that they do or...

    "Welcome to 1979" Recording Studio

    @Kurt Foster Pretty cool. 1979 MCI console, modded with several channels of API pre's. Lots of the 'standard faire" of the 70's in signal processing. The only things I think they're missing is a couple of dayglo-orange bean bag chairs, harvest gold shag carpeting... and Peruvian Marching...

    Orban 622B Parametric EQ

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me a little about the Orban Parametric Eq model 622B ? I have come across one which has come out of a broadcast facility in Oz. I really don't know much about these units. With the age I'd expect it would require recapping, but I'm keen to know if anyone is...

    ADM 1540 Equalizer

    So I was given a free pair of (what seem to look old) ADM 1540 equalizers today and I'm very unfamiliar with the product. I am not finding much info online. The ones I'm seeing online have the actual number "1540" engraved next to "ADM" but mine do not. I attached a photo. Any info on worth or...
