He loved it so much he later tracked down a Maxi-Korg and bought it too. If you EVER get the chance, the Maxi-Korg is just insane. Just like its little brother but the rabbit hole goes even deeper

Here here! Man I love the 700s so much and it's such a over looked under rated synth which is great cos not every Tom, Dick and Harry wants one or uses it (yet! lol)
They are slowly gaining value though so I had to get one sooner rather than later before it would be way out of my reach. I would love a 800DV but I have actually never seen one for sale here!
The 700s nails "THAT" Vangelis sound I grew up with when I was a kid.. Yes his signature sound was the CS-80 but he did have a 700s and it nails some of those sounds

As for the EPS.. What a lovely, easy to use and great sounding sampler!

All of the MP2016's are discontinued or only the earlier models? I thought the earlier models were discontinued.

The 'a' and 'A' series were discontinued when the 'S' series came out about a year or two ago. Sales guys at both PSSL and Audiolines told me the same thing, that Rane was gonna start pushing the Sixty Eight and the MP25.

Cut a hole in the table to accommodate the Rane. Also built a small shelf underneath the table to hold the Audio8. Table frame is an Utby from Ikea.

Seriously though, I’m curious about the system set up. It seems like a lot of
Different cabinets mixed together. You have 3 totally different sub designs with
the scoops, J horns and dual 18 direct radiators, and 2 different mid bass horns…
sealed dual 15 horns and ported single 15 horns.

It would seem from the pics that the system would have issues with cancelations
and phase issues and at the very least muddy bass response due to the difference
in timing from all 3 sub designs. Just curious about what you have done or what
processing your running to correct those issues.

Was there last month and the place is not the same without him! the "Bump, Bump, Bump, your ass off" just did not have the same ring like it used to. RIP Scott.

Updated setup

Nothing compared to some of the great consoles on this thread. But considering my lack of woodworking skills it didnt turn out too bad.
Console is built onto a metal shelf unit. Turntables sit on cinder block columns isolated with industrial vibration pads.

I decided to build a new console this summer, and here's the result!



I don't know if anyone remember the other console I posted some time back, maybe a couple of years ago, but I think this new one is way better in many ways.

I resized it a bit so I don't have to keep eating all those bananas just to reach the pitchfader on my turntables, lol. Also, I mounted piano hinges on the front of this one, so even though it's not really adjustable now, it will be when I either make it motorized or when I make something to keep it in 2-3 fixed positions. I think the current position it's in works great, so I'm not really in a hurry about doing anything about it right now.

Also, I wanted to make some turntable isolation as my old one didn't have any at all. Did some testing with tennis balls and tape rolls, but found that the old rubber band trick on a board was best for me. Not that I really need any of this at home, but I did it for fun. Besides, somehow I feel it's more authentic that way.

Hope you like it, because I do

I treated my Urei to new knobs (made by APEM), a bypass mod, and new Burr Brown opamps.

Moving up, there's a Phazon EQ (bought broken from Shorty and fixed), a Bozak Isolator (a few mods done), and a Rane AX30 crossover.

Under the hood there's a RNLA (a *fantastic* sounding little Leveling Amplifier/Compressor). I don't use the Tweeter channel of the AX30 so I altered its crossover point to be full-range and made it the sidechain for the RNLA.

Disco Ole, That console looks amazing. Do you have any issues with brushing against the EQs with them below the channel faders?

RS_, You mind saying what kind of mods you did to the Bozak Iso?

I added a little gain to the bands (from 6dB to about 8dB) and upgraded some caps (it's an all-discrete unit.)

The Bozak Isolator gets an incredible amount of bad press, but it actually sounds fantastic. It's definitely more of an EQ than an Isolator.

Thanks guys :-)

John-Martin, I actually prefer having the EQ-module at the bottom. No trouble with brushing against the EQs either, but if you use the cross-fader it's easy to get into trouble because of the headphone cord. I rarely use the crossfader though, and I'm sure there's no worries as long as you're conscious about it.

I must confess though, it looks kind of strange to have the EQ module at the bottom, but to me it just felt more natural. I think I've had it like this for most of the time I owned this mixer actually.

There's a couple of things I even see as being an advantage by having it this way. First, if you want use the cross-fader, now it's more available due to that there's no knobs in the way. It simply doesn't feel as cramped. And for some reason I think it's easier to choose the right set of EQ knobs to turn without having to take a look at the mixer. My "turning the wrong knobs"-rate must have gone down by a lot of percentages by doing this, lol.

Heres some pictures (Crap quality, sorry) of my setup.

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/202/dscf3192e.jpg/

Ive had this setup for years (Although I swapped my old MIDI controller for a Denon DNHC4500 last year, new Macbook and an extra amp/ powerstrip to drive a second set of speakers)
However as ive moved house and had major building work done its been in storage with my vinyl for two years!!!

The kit:
3x SL1200s (Dont really use a third one often, was thinking of selling it but a problem with the pitch control has got worse - one for the bench methinks)
Stageline VU
UREI 1620 LE
TC Electronic FIREWORX (Gorgeous FX unit, totally amazing sound!!!)
XFX 3004 Electronique Spectacle Isolator
Denon DNHC4500 and a macbook Pro(Dont really use this when mixing at home)
Numark CDN22 Dual CD Player
Tascam SSR1 Solid state flash recorder
GVG 600 DMX Controller (Dont really use this: got it cheap, would like to learn DMX one day and have a small amount of lights)
Sony TCWE435 Tape deck (Rarely used...)

Underneath:
Crown amp
Samson amp
Behringer patchbay
2x Samson powerstrips
The CD unit controlled above

Also:
2 JBL JRX 125 speakers (I wanted something better, but that deal fell through and I got these on a deal... may upgrade next yr)
2x Mission Pro monitors
