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!
Thanks! Ive started preparing some of my guys to get it back up. They groaned :-)

Germ Channel is basically done. Need to work on some other channel options for it!

He stressed that this is by no means finished yet, so please don't bombard him with order requests. They are still working hard on this console and it is NOT done, and they are not taking orders yet. heh

I am not affiliated with Chandler... just a fan.

I am still drooling over this console though personally. I think it's absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! Great work Wade!!!

2 new 500 units - NO

Your fronplate are so nicely designed, it's a shame to have them resized in a small 500 format !!


Germ channel- NO

Finish console- HELL YES
+ it probably means big bucks in the end :D

Super germ- NO


Super tg- YES YES

The 500s Im looking at are totally new products. I didn't want to shoe horn an existing unit into a 500 like you said.

Thanks for the votes!

What about putting normal faders on this thing and offer the futuristic one as an option?

Yes, make the Tone Control more flexible!
And please keep mastering in mind: smaller stepps (at least 1dB or less), less noise in the aktive band, more Q control (broader), more frequency choises, maybe a stereo unit...

I think some mastering engineers are interested in this (I know at least two...) because it´s a really differnt eq, which can be very helpfull for some kind of music (not for many kinds, but when it fits, it´s a killer!)


thanks.

As of now we have not remade the old style faders so there might not be a choice :-(

P&G wanted $500,000 for a batch of the old style ones. STUPID!
We're looking at a gear system to replace the old mechanics but not sure how it will go.

Wade ,

Can you make a 2-channel high shelf booster? 2 knobs - freq and +db. No cut needed. Just a simple eq to boost highs on program material or individual tracks.

Normal faders would have been a good option if it was actually cheaper than the futuristics one, oterwise the ones on the pic are still pretty cool looking.

Ill try to get some pics. Right now its pretty taken apart so I can experiment with everything.

1 band EQ. Probably not at a super cheap price. You'd need most of the stuff from a full eq. Completely passive might be possible but normally you would use a T circuit which can be complicated.
The EMI RS127 (from the Presence Filter Pack) has a switch that is something like 20 layers. It goes from the front of the unit to the back with something wired to everything....

I think faders is the only thing Im unsure of how it will be done. It would be great to offer both...

K , I see. Maybe that`s why it`s not a common design already. Thanks for answering

I wish that the MiniMixer had direct outs and and an aux1+2. If anything it's simple enough. How much simpler can you get than a pan and level control?

me too! if it had direct outs and a couple sends (though 4 would be even better) it'd be great for tracking synths.

direct outs, inserts and sends would make the minimixer the answer for a lot of people

I wouldn't mind some new 500 gear stuff. Consoles seem to kill even strong companies so I'd rather go the 500 series route and build my own "console" however I want.

Don't drop the faders! Makes the console stand out more and looks awesome.

Some pics while you're assembling the console?
