...and would that be the South or the North?  Half a decade later, I'm still not fully sure how that all came out.  Or not.

I lay out my good Vietnam to serve agent orange segments, on a salad of hearts of napalm.

I was never a big gold foil fan. It's generally too 'neutral' for me.

I've heard a general lack of enthusiasm from a lot of engineers about the 240,  but I must say this one was very impressive, brighter than a 140, especially initially, and great stereo effect..

...and so compact..!!

i'm surprised that the 240 was brighter than a 140

generally it's very smooth, but lacks that high 'zing' people (including me) like about a good plate reverb

I know the 240 always gets criticized in comparison to the 140, but when we had one (did not have a 140) I always liked it, and almost always preferred to any of the "plates" in the digital boxes available - even the 250! Don't know if I'd still feel that way as I (hopefully) know more about using fx than I did back then... I do tend to go for darker verbs, though, so that may be why.

Darkish.. initial decay was really bright...  Sounded nice at very short decay times,  (also we had the 100Hz HP filter switched to -24dB)

I always liked using the Record Plant's 240 on more pure or classical elements. So strings, sometimes brass or winds, sometimes back vocals.

They had it on a little dolly so it could be 'ordered' with your outboard list to go to any of the rooms as requested.

I must get my 250 fixed. Whenever I get it back to the US will send it to David Kulka.

I just love that thing.


Steve Addobbo has repaired his 250s at his studio for years, maybe give him a call, too..
