Even now....l boom I remember Alison 64K Automation options, that and Massenburg, and Necam etc. in those late seventies early eighties Good VCA automation was just becoming realistic for near most 16-24 buss consoles! Ok.... Let's get into Alison research and their first VCA!

I was under the impression that Valley People, on the 90's had some incarnation with the people from Rank Arena and stuff got very involved and complex to a point where certain owners and stake holders were bought out and some stuff changed, new VCA's were streaking ahead and DBX, Allison, and 6 other companies were perfecting those IC's maybe you need to check out DB magazine and the incarnation prior to Sound On Sound in the UK.

These 2 were both hugely influential and must read tech biblical type testing and Data for Enginners, back then they were testing everything and found the third harmonic in UREI 1178's at 15kHz which gave the original 1176's their sound.... People jumped on 1176's as must haves like DBX 160's and 165's, Kepax Chatter used to drive me NUTS until MKII came out and in the 90's you could not give them away etc. great idea and good on you for getting traffic, though I think there is more of the story that's been missed? Might be wrong? Great stuff though!
Thank you!

Interesting article. Im curious, what came first, The TA-101 VCA or the EGC-101 VCA The EGC isnt mentioned at all in the article and is the one I am most familiar with. I still have an Allison Research 64k programmer box that wrote automation for my Harrison console back in the day.
