Wow, I didn't realize how big that console is. What an exciting project! I think Brad is correct, that could be a great lure for jazz musicians if combined with a really good grand piano and a great room.

She is five foot long, two feet deep, two feet high.

Room to add the 2 band passive EQ's I want for each channel plus an extra send and return... or three.

I'm also having Ken add switching for mic or line (right now you have to physically strap (solder) each module for use as only mic or line. Then you have to strap your gain 30dB, 40dB or 46dB. I want everything switchable at the console.

Also I need to have switchable pads installed at the inputs. Strapped at 30, I still need to pad my drum mic's down by another -10 to -15. These old tube gals have some gain! They want ribbon mic's fed into them.

Last is all the wiring is going to a new panel made up of XLR and quarter inch jacks eliminating the long wire runs and making her more flexible.

I do, I do, my Electrodyne had one (that one stood up like a real Christmas tree :  )  My Quad Eight  Pacifica had one as well.

This old Langevin doesn't have one... but I don't mind. Ha ha.

God bless you guys that work on them there x-mas trees.
