There are times that I wish I was re-capping it instead of the MCI 538C I am re-building.
I'd be finished now!
Seriously, I lived with that console for seven years and did A LOT of recordings on it.
They mostly all stand up quite well against other consoles I have used.
Even though I had a Sphere before and after the Soundtracs there was a lot of stuff I could not have done on the Sphere.
I also worked on a Neve 8128 after the Soundtracs and although it might have theoretically sounded "better" it was maintenance NIGHTMARE!
That old CM4400 is probably still working in some guy's studio somewhere!
That Neve became a parts desk I believe.
