Star Of Stage & Screen
Well then definately go for a mixer from the 70s or 80s that sat in some garage for 20 years.BTW, the project at hand was stacking a handful of SE Boomstar modules using the MIDI overflow to create a massive analog poly. Really excited to see the results! Shouldn't be so different from the concept of a FVS, or the like. I was thinking to add some more tweakable, character-inducing elements to the signal chain pre-box, but I have more than enough I can do ITB, too.
Get something cheap for the time being but don’t stop shopping for an old low mileage mixer.
I once found an expensive rare hardware synth in a wooden case I thought was a Pool Cue.
Opened it up and it was an EML-101 Analog Synth in Mint condition. I gave the lady 100 bucks because I told her it was worth more than 20 bucks.
I always take my pig nose amp and cables with me when garage shopping.
Most recently I bought 2 x MacIntosh 2500 watt Power Amps with chicken wire and bright orange tubes.
I’m always seeing little mixers and record players.
Gray and Tan were popular colors in the 70s.
I’ve got nothing but Studio Electronics gear. Code 8 OD with all Filter options, 2 x SE-02s and 2 x SE-1Xs with distortion and Envelope mod. They sound like greasy fat bastards when thrown into an old mixer. But I admit I really love the pristine sound of my RCF TT08As. They’re powered 8 inch cabinets that can open doors with SPLs.
Don’t give up looking.
Below is my beloved fat multi oscilator EML.
I’ve been offered thousands for it. No way Jose, it stays where it lays.
