I just realized how badly spoiled I am from this piece of modern technology. This is a PreSonus StudioLive 16.4.2 digital mixing console. Each channel, buss, and aux has its own equalizer, dynamics processing (gate, compressor, limiter), and everything can be stored and recalled in scene memory including the faders. They’re not motorized on this board but that doesn’t really matter. There are also two internal reverb processors that sound perfectly okay.
What’s going to happen now when I have to mix on an old analog console where it doesn’t even have a weird sounding analog compressor on the mic in channels?
I’m up the creek, man. Spoiled rotten. Perhaps I should squirrel away a few pennies for my own console with digital snake (ADCs remote mounted; only an Ethernet cable runs to the stage!)

While I try to figure out how to get fastcgi and php-fpm going (I’m not in that “go rewrite config files” state of mind right now) I just turned down MaxRequestWorkers to prevent ram-sucking jams.
Speaking of things jamming…. I’m trading in my Harris Z16 for an orange tree soon. Yes, THIS GUY. I have yet to ever send this SSTV slide to anyone though. You know, sometimes life throws you orange playground balls. I really love radio and electronics but this thing will never, ever, send me alarms at 4 AM, and that makes me a lot happier.
Yes, Gimenez, tell that to the people who will be employed at minimum wage and can’t afford basic living expenses and the commute to and from work. Vete pa’ la pinga. Thank you for the decades of complete lack of any urban and community planning.
A friend of mine found this at a flea market and had no clue what it was. I looked it over and well, I have… not a clue what it is either. We found one US patent filing for it and that’s all she wrote… apparently the company was in New Mexico.
Apparently it is designed to equalize speech to make it more easily understandable by the hard of hearing.
I get the feeling this was a one-off unit, as a proof of concept.
Please note that it is STUFFED TO THE GILLS with boards, including these:
The CPU board inside was made by New Micros Inc of Dallas, TX. It appears to be a Motorola 68HC11 dev board.
We know just about as much about how to use this device as this pug knows about using a trampoline.
This is a pair of very nice Fluke lab grade multimeters in pieces at the car wash after I turned my back a minute and something or someone pissed on them. They were not powered at the time and none got on the modules inside.
I took the opportunity to foaming wax them. The mixture was all blobby so I spread it with my hand. It stained!!
