nice trannys on ebay....

these would be ideal for doing a "Transfarmer" as I now call these units. I have some very small low-headroom Triads in my unit that are my favorite. Instant flavor change. These look quite similar in values and era. Pretty good price, too. Allen http://cgi.ebay.com/NOS-New-Old-Stock-Triad-S-58X-Lin...

Joel, I totally dig what you're saying, and personally find that two of the best aspects of working with analog tape machines have nothing to do with the sound. 1. I love how it slows down the whole work flow and - after people adjust to rewinding and changing reels - chills everyone out and offers ...

I hadn't seen this Rane box before. It's does exactly what I describe doing in the article, though I know nothing about the transformers or how they sound. I can attest to the fact that getting a pair of transformers in a box already wired and mounted is a great thing, as finding the right solution ...

Yes, the difference between the BAE 1073 and 1023 are the EQ points - and of course whatever circuitry they use to achieve them. If you're going as far as their 1073, jump up to the 1023. It's an instant classic. BAE has changed some of their model numbers, so for the Dual 1272 you're now looking at...

Well, I'd tell you all to just go read my article in Tape Op this month, but there are more variables in this discussion than I got into in that article. For the record, I was reviewing Neve-a-likes, not clones , and they all had to be under $1500.00. So, seems like what we're talking about here is ...

I'm glad you all dug the article. It grew out of a quick review I submitted about how I like using old transformers, and our fine editors asked to expand the piece. As for finding transformers, most of mine come from eBay, my tech and then some from the manufacturers themselves. Part of the fun is t...

I've been mixing with the B2 for a number of days now. I've used the HEDD for years, clocked both internally and with an Antelope OCX (different sounds, each really great, a matter of taste, really). Decided to get a B2 over here once I'd worked with Roscoe's for a day. What Roscoe said about it bei...

After the analog synth panel / demonstration at TapeOpCon, I got it stuck in my head to have a modular console into which I could pop various synth modules on certain channels. I pictured it being something like the API or Tonelux modular systems, and somehow configuring all those cool analog synth ...
