Portishead technique

Anyone out there happen to know if there's truth to the rumour that the Portishead Dummy release was recorded using a TAC Scorpion mixing console? I've heard that the John Spencer Blues Explosion has used one and possibly Blue Rodeo as well...

Thanks,
Drew

Re: does anyone know the AMEK - TAC Scorpion

Hey, Whaddaya know! Lots of people talking about the console I'm trying to sell. Overall most comments are pretty valid. Lots of stories of this board being in rough shape, which I can understand as this model was used as a live board alot of the time. The board I have has had 3 previous owners and ...

Wanted:Ward Beck Systems Power Supply

:shock: In need of a 25v/side power supply for a Ward Beck mixing board. It doesn't have to be a WBS supply, just something that matches the specs. Will potentially be mounted outside the board casing.

I'm hoping to unload this tape in bulk if possible but would also send some of the newer reels separa...
