That does exist. There's TG gear in a modular mini format and the best part is while it function like 500 series gear it's not.

I can see taking the postion that you've already got a 500 rack, but how long until that's full. It's too bad there aren't people designing for the Mini Rack as it's far better where power is concerned.

What would be cooler?
Full Germ Channel
or
Upgraded version of the Pre and Tone Control with more choices and fun stuff?


Wade
Oh! how about the option to upgrade what we may already have w/ some more choices and fun stuff.......

more choices for the eq sounds very interesting, maybe that bright switch for the pre.....

what did you have in mind, Wade?

Hey Sluts-
Been looking/thinking hard about the designs of the stuff we are talking about. Germ Channel could happen pretty fast. Pretty sure its mostly done.
Ive been working on two 500 units and i want to either finish them or if I dont like them, toss 'em :-)
Them the Germ should be able to rock.

Pretty sure Ill get back on the console as well. Im going to pull it back out of the closet this week. I pretty much have the interface with the Dangerous ST worked out. Mostly at this point its about fine tuning the bussing and finishing the channels to go in there. Need to make decisions about how to manufacture the frame as well.

I really didn't think that many people would be so into another console....Its nice to hear!

Plenty of new gear coming this year :-)
Cheers
Wade

I really want to do the Channel in a 1RU thing instead of a big two or three rack thing.
Space is such a premium today....

I also have the TG2: it's the bees knees. Regarding the production potential above:

1. Space: whatever it takes to get the job done in a typical Chandler fashion: kicking ass from here to the heavens.

2. What would be the upgrades compared to the current Germ Pre and Germ Tone versus the possiblity of a Germ channel strip?

Hey there-
The Germ Pre I have put all sorts of things on.
300/600/1200/2400 input impedance
7 position low cut
thick, 1/2 thick, 1/4 selectionBright and 1/ bright selection
600/150 output impedance - really helps if you like driving the Germ, turns down the ouput...
Output control - similar to old tube gear. 600 ohm attenuator. Not sure if I like this...
Hi and Med Impedance DI.

Germ Tone I basically made it into a 5 band eq. There is another mid range set.

Ive been into the idea of a "super Germ" or "Super TG" pre for a long time. Thats what all the selections up above are about...Should I add that to the list :-)

BIG YES on the Super Germ and Super TG!!!!!!! I'd be onboard for both as soon as they were available. Your suggestions on the Super Germ are awesome. It would make that pre so much more versatile! It already sounds awesome!

For me, simpler is better. The KISS rule: Keep It Simple Stupid. That's what I love about the TG2: just two knobs per channel, vary the input gain and viola`.

Hence, my .02:

Germ Pre: I'd prefer it the way it is.

Germ EQ: I don't have one yet (should change soon) but it's got enough controls that if I can't get it on with the Germ Tone Control, then one more mid control isn't going to make or break it for me or the music task, or so I imagine.

Hey Isle!

I guess I should have been more clear. The "Super" pres would not replace the original Germ and TG pre. They would both be new single channel versions with everything possible on them. So upgrading wouldn't really be an option as they would be completely different units...

So heres where we are in Slutz Poll land...

2 new 500 units - Yes?
Germ Channel- Yes?
Finish console- Yes?
Super Germ- Yes?
Super TG- Yes?

What do you want the most?

What else is on your minds. Product thoughts? Ive had people ask for a simpler form of the Mini Mixer etc....I have "neve-ish" product that is based on a one of a kind unit I found....on and on...

Thanks for the suggestions to all of you! Its nice to have a few friends to bounce ideas of of :-)

Dear Wade,

1. If you're gonna go 500 series, would a TG EQ be too much to ask? No mic amp, just the lurverly EQ.

2. Console wise - an 8 channel TG sidecar with aux sends and faders maybe?

Thank you!!

Ok. If but if I finish the console somebody has to buy one :-)

"Basho"- TG is not really possible in the 500 without a lot of messing. Tgs run on about twice the voltage of a 500 and thats just the start. I dont think the sound would get past Abbey Road either....Sorry!

Noooooo....

But wait! What about a stereo rack version of just the TG EQs then?

Yes yes yes, but without the mic amps? I think almost every happy TG2 owner would snap one up.... I would anyway!!!

I'd be very interested in the console. I understand you're very cautious about launching a new mixer in these kind of day's, but I really think it'll be a success!

Your contemporary product line is outstanding and having the possibility to listen and evaluate everybody's opinion about the 1608, 5033, Tonelux and Genesys, this console could become a hit!

well WHEN that console hits the stores i'm gonna buy it...it's that simple...been loving every single chandler unit i've tried since my very first tg channel...(currently i got the mini mixer - germ pre - germ eq - germ comp, so a full console with germ channels sounds like a pretty good idea to me...haha) so i might as well admit it right away..

hi my name is martin i'm a chandler-o-holic
