1970s vintage mixing desk power supply and origin

hi there everyone. i recently picked up this old mixing desk for a good price and ive been wanting to try and get it up and running and see what it sounds like. my first step is that i need to get a 4 pin power supply cable to power the unit and wanted to see if anyone knew exactly what voltage and everything something like this would need.


Plugging into my mixer...correctly

Ive had some good results just plugging stuff in like I know what i'm doing.

I'm ready to do it right. I got a large mixer, and patchbays, so everything will be user friendly, and ready to go.

I have a 32 channel analog yamaha monitor mixer.  It makes 10 monitor mixes. Im going to use 8 busses to sent whatever I need to my interface, and the 9/10 buss as my main stereo out.

Akai Sampler


After many years I am looking to reconnect with around 200 akai floppy disks and have questions if you can advise please.

is there a viable route to connect them  to iMac either with a sampler( sold years ago)?

Floppy disks:what is needed to read them and transfer to the iMac? Or what is needed for Sampler to iMac ?


Different Outputs for Different Tracks

Hi im wondering if its possible to have (for example) two tracks in the same project but have each track go to a different output?

In this case i have a DI bass and a DI guitar, id like to route them to their own amps respectively and have them play simultaneously when the track starts but with each track coming from their own amp.

Pearl 8-CK


Hello,  I have found a vintage Pearl 8-CK (incl. power supply) when cleaning up an old house.  Can somebody please help me in determining the value of this nice device ?    I'm also thinking of selling it.   Can somebody also inform me on where to sell this best ?
