Tac Scorpion
 
Hi,

Thanks for doing this. Did you use Tac Scorpion for the first Nirvana record? What's your opinion of the console?

Best regards,
Mark

Nevermind (2nd album) was recorded at Sound City through a Neve.

If memory serve me correctly, we recorded the Sub Pop demos through a Tac Scorpion, although most of the tracks went through outboard pre amps: my API lunchbox and some Summit gear. I mixed those demos on the Scorpion.

About 3 months later, we bought a used Harrison 3232, and that's what I used on GISH!
