I really liked the 1630. The 3/4" video recorders, not so much. Still they were more compact than rolling a DASH machine around, at the time.

When I was doing lots of big band concerts, I'd say 85% of the time we kept the two-track we mixed during the concert rather than remixing from the multitrack.
