I own a Studiomaster Series 5 16/8/2 mixer. Its pretty colored and has a very interesting eq. Got some really interesting drums sounds from it, for an album I recently mixed. It needs to be cleaned up a little and maybe a little swapping of op-amps could do the trick. For me since I don't do many pr...

ACMP 73 Group Buy

Has anyone went for the Group Buy for never 1073 clones in the Low End Theory thread on gearslutz? They seem really interesting. I am picking up two 84s with a ACM-2 mic. Check it out

ampex 601. Yep, but not as colored as you woul think. Maybe get an EH12AY7 and try some really "wrong" tubes in it. get some old used beat up tubes and go nuts wth that thing. find any old transformers you can find (audio) and try them on the I and the O. That is going to be my next thing... collec...

I'm kind of in the same boat. Wanting to get my first quality solid state pre and eq. So far I'm working with a UA 6176... and the tube pre is awesome for some things, but I really want to try a non tube pre/eq. I also have an old studiomaster 16/8/2 board, and I find myself actually liking the sou...

Glad to see someone answered the post. Where did you get your caps? How much have you invested already in the board? Have you done any op amp swaps?

I suggest buying the online manual from Studiomaster, its well worth it. I bought it a couple of months ago, it was not expensive at all. Will give you all the info you need.

I have been wanting to attempt doing a swap of the tl052 opamp chips in the board and maybe recapping the power supply, but I am not so DIY as I should be. I just have some basic knowledge on the subject. I have heard that some people changed the opamp to a burr-bown opamp on the pre-amps but heard ...

I own a Studiomaster series 5 16-8-2 mixer and love the damn thing. Its has so much character in it that does not exist in new gear. The studiomaster mixer that you show is a little weird, I think it has the same capabilites as the p7 series which is also considered good. Its way better that a mackie!

all that stuff looks cool. The DBX rack looks wicked, so does the oldschool yamaha console.
