All that was left was to do a full band tracking session. Did it yesterday and we are all really excited about the results. Here's a pic from the booth. .

You said "t's great to turn the console on and have it really come back exactly where it was the day before." Do you power down your console every day? I have an Elan and have been leaving it on except when it won't be used for a week or more. Have you found powering on and off everyday wears out the PSU? Or am I being overly cautious? Would be great to cut the electric usage a little!

At our last place we had a vintage Calrec console from the BBC that required a lot of work. We have our Neotek's power supply plugged into a big Furman Balanced Isolation Ground Transformer. We always power it down when we aren't using it. I don't feel like we've put any stress on it by doing that.

I don't know, but OSHA might not dig that! :twisted:
