CONSOLE

MCI/API/ 53 Input 636 w/ NEVE FLYING FADERS
This 1979 console has been meticulously maintained and upgraded over the years. The Flying Faders system was installed in 1996, removing all VCA’s in the console. The entire mix buss was upgraded to a totally discrete API buss system that achieves +27dbm output. There are also 6 discrete API busses available for tracking.These modifications are totally integrated into the console, no external patching is required. There are 46 automated inputs.
