Walker audio consoles

Member for

Hi everyone new to this site. Had seen people talking about Walker or earlier version Pulsar consoles. One person was I believe was Sky. I know quite a lot about Walker as I have an 80 Series 32x8x8 and a 24 x8 monitor console. Both are in pristine condition. The 80 Series has at the time the 5 way fully sweepable eq, not many consoles had this option as it was towards the end of production. My console was used at the AES show in NY that year for Walker. I took delivery after the show. These were in my opinion the best console for the money and sound and headroom was stupid good.

Advanced technical analog console questions.

Hi,

I have some pretty Advanced technical analog console questions if anyone of you guys know the answer please help me out!

When your signal hits a analog channel on a console.

1) Does it hit the capacitors that are in the console first? and then the signal hits what ever hardware you have on your inserts? or is it after?

2) What component in the console actually creates the noise that we hear? is it the capacitors? and is noise added to the signal before or after it touches the capacitors?

Toft ATB console pres really hot all of a sudden?

HI all,
yesterday I was micing up a drum kit and for the 1st time all the pres on my TOft ATB console are really hot. For the over heads and front of kit, along with others, the pres are all the way down and even had to lower the channel fader to reduce the level. they sound fine, there just really hot.

I don't have great isolation between my drum room and control room, so I set up my recording compression and eq on pre recorded material, switching the input of the console to line rather than mic. and using The insert I/O in protools

Hi Bos, Dave, hi gang :)
I saw this advertised in this month's issue of Pro Sound, and thought I would post a link to info on the new A&H digital console; Bos, I know you're a fan of A&H...
This seems to be a pretty remarkable deal for under $3500 ( (US)...
96k, 48 input channels, 36 Busses, 24 mic pres, 25 motorized faders, (presumably the 25th is for the Master Bus).
Anyway, just thought I'd post the link to the details in case anyone is interested. :)

Console history question

Kurt... or anyone else who might be able to chime in...
I was wondering what console was used during the hey-day of Sigma Studios in Philly, during the period of The Spinners, Delfonics, Stylistics, etc.
I've tried researching it and haven't been able to come up with much info on Sigma, though I did read that they were the first studio in the U.S. to have a 24 track 2" machine...
There's all kof nfs of info about Thom Bell, Gamble &a Huff, and even session players

Using a power amp/mixer as just a power amp for a mixing console?

Member for

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but I couldn't find a better one. I was hoping someone could clarify some questions I have about setting up a PA system for my home studio. I recently acquired a Peavey XM6 amplifier/mixer and we've been running it through an 80 watt behringer wedge. We have a set of yamaha PA speakers that are on their way this week. I was wondering, since my peavey only has 2 outputs, and not a lot of control over equalizing, can I use it as a power amplifier for a mixing board? If so can I use it to hook up all 3 speakers.
