242 bell on 292 is a tricky one - I don't know for sure what the bell Q on the 242 is (I probably knew in 1985!), I would start with the Q on the 292 as low as possible and see what it sounds like. I think it should be possible to get reasonably close, our idea was that you could use the mid bands as bell.

When designing the 292 we didn't look at the 242 at all, the idea at the start was that customers could choose either. Rest of the story will follow, honest, I'll need a break from writing Christmas cards soon ;)

Try soldering a 100R resistor across R19 on the '10 card - I can't guarantee how much it will speed up the attack but it should be a bit faster. I wouldn't go any lower than that as you'll probably stress the op-amp.

Would you be willing to sell a couple of the sl506 faders if they are still available?

Andy so I have 292's and one 242 in my console. What Q setting on blue
green eq sections of 292 equals the bell Q on the 242? Still waiting on the Dire Straits story. Thanks

Could you also talk about what things you wanted to change from the 242 when you designed the 292.

How hard would it be to have my fast attack comp setting be 1ms versus 3ms when I choose fast attack setting?
Great. Heard you on the podcast last week.
OK so I figuerd it out! :D

it turns out to be a link (jumper) on the right side of the LEFT of center section upper bus card
and also on the left side on the RIGHT of center section buscard.
adding these two jumpers joins the DYN link across the center section.

hope this helps someone in the future.

Hello, I am looking for just 2 more fader modules from a ssl 5000. sl556g, sl506, sl508, etc, any of the modules would do, they wouldn't have to be in working condition, if anyone has any spares or knows where I could find some I would love to know

Thank you
