No, I'm not taking strong drugs! Has anyone come across this remake of the old classic Ursa Major digital delay? I used to love it for drum ambience and some vocals and guitars, but mainly drums. By mounting PZMs on 8 x 4 foot boards placed in front of the kit and adding the Space Station to these I was in rock drumsound heaven. Unfortunately my old unit gave up the ghost.
Enter a company called Seven Woods in New York making a handheld version of the original. Sounds like a good idea (except for only having digital I/O ) I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has tried this unit.
have you seen the plug in version by Princeton Digital? I have no idea if it captures the mojo of the hardware unit (I'm guessing the original converters would've been part of the sound). I bought their 2016 reverb plug after hearing the hardware unit and absolutely love it.
I'm resuscitating this thread as I've recently heard from the esteemed Mr Moores lovely wife that they recently produced a small new batch of SST-206.
I would be extremely interested in obtaining one of these new units if this is true. Been looking for one of the reissues for a long time, to no avail of course. If anyone has any info it would be greatly appreciated! Chet D, Did Mrs. Moore tell you anything regarding how one could purchase a unit?
Thanks Chet! I now have one of the new sst-206 run en route to me, can't wait to get it hooked up and do some mixing with it.. I'm thinking of doing the same thing, using it as an (analog) send off my mixing board, just using an old, (cheap) aes to analog converter to get in and out. Since you're saving on rackspace with the whole reverb unit being inside the remote, what's a half , or even a whole space devoted to getting in and out of the box? Heck, you may even be able to gain some in / out metering that is lacking on the unit itself.
I'm thinking, since this whole thing is designed to mimic the 12-bit, 7khz bandwidth of the original (according to the seven woods website), you could probably get by with some less than stellar conversion here.

So, just keeping with the old GS mantra, "if there's no pictures it didn't really happen" - Here is a picture of the brand new Space Station SST-206 Reissue I just got in the mail! It's a trip thinking that this thing is a new run ten years after the reissue of the Space Station (the Seven Woods Audio SST-206), which was produced in 2002-2003, twenty five years after the original Space Station was produced by Mr. Christopher Moore in 1978!! What?!?!
It does not seem to be publicized anywhere, but they did say they had a "few" units left, so if you want one, head to the Seven Woods Audio website and shoot them an email.
for a very cool and unique processor. Lots of fun, very cool sounds to be had for sure!
