Sound Workshop 30 Series Console

  1. Hey Guys.

    Just managed to get my hands on a mint Sound Workshop series 30 console. Its 12 channel, and is in great nick.

    Has anybody got one? Trying to decide if I should rack up the channels, or just keep it as is.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    I think it may be worth it to rack up. I'm currently working in a studio that used to have one (it's in storage now) and they told me that there is a very cool mod that's rather easy. It apparently raises the quality quite a bit.

    I just put a call in to one of the owners of the board and when I get an answer as to what exactly the mod is, I'll let you know.

    I did hear some older recordings that was done on the Sound Workshop and they sounded very nice.

    I would keep it as is ... it's perfect as a front end and for summing for a DAW ....

    I know a very respected Grammy nominated producer who had a Soundworkshps console in her studio for a long time ... this is a pretty respectable board.

    I can't say for sure but I think they were made by OTARI ... I know for sure OTARI handled the service on them for a period in the 90's ...
     
  5. yeah, thanks kurt

    i was thinking about that to, might get myself a rosetta 800 to go with it.

    i think your right some of the dudes from api went to work at soundworkshop, the otari bought the company. thats about all the information i can find.
