Trying to keep my mind off other things.....

Last week I've picked up 10 more E modules, and have 24 VU meters being shipped - should they ever arrive....

Had a problem with the computer where 6 hours in to a session, the VDU went on the fritz. It was quite hot in the control room having the console, computer, and 2" machine running. I had to shut the computer down after a few attempts of restarting did not fix it. In the morning it worked correctly and is back to normal.
The computer was running and responding to commands perfectly, just with garbage all over the screen. TR worked fine as well.

I'm assuming this is the MM2012AN Video Memory, on the Keyboard and VDU card? 8 chips of 1024 bytes each?

Sit back and Relax / The Impending World Doom

Hi everyone,

Though it might be wise to check in on everyone and see how they are going, given the world troubles.
The arts and entertainment sector her in Australia has been completely smashed. No indoor events over 100 people, no outdoor over 500. No international travel.
I'm sitting at home, due to work enforced staff isolation / distancing. It will be like this for months to come.
We had a European tour booked for May/Jun, but that has fallen to pieces as the flights have been cancelled with little hope of refund. Likewise hotels etc...

On a slightly up side, quite a few people have been wanting to do some recording, whilst not being able to play shows. Most small venues are closed.

Hope you all are coping with it OK.

Sell-Buy / Re: 4044G+ for sale. DL connectors and looms

Good luck with the sale of your console. I notice that there are 7m console to patchbay cables and a number of DL looms with different terminations at the other ends.

If it helps your sale and the potential buyer, I supply DL connectors to UK distributors and European studios and also construct DL cables and patchbays. If the buyer would need shorter than 7m looms, I can reduce these in length to suit if sent to me here in the UK.

I am the wiring moderator on here and have posted numerous posts regarding wiring. I have also just posted some up to date DL connector prices in the Sell/buy menu.

Many thanks Chris - yes I thought 1984 and typed 1986!

Took me a while to spot the difference, the 241 has 4db more headroom on the line input than the 01
Sell-Buy / 4044G+ Unique size and condition!

Solid State Logic SL4044G+

Fitted are 40 mono channels with 292EQ and 4 stereo channels which give you 48 channels in just 2m width, thanks to the custom ordered frame with its narrow center section, thin end trims and remote patchbay. VU-metering for channels, analog PPMs in center section and remote 19” VU-meter panel for Cues & SLS. This console was never fitted with automation or total recall but is prepared for easy connection to the new THD-Labs Tangerine automation for DAW control.

Delivered new in late September 1997 and has since only been powered up and used for about two days a month, which equals an aggregated everyday usage of about 18 months. Therefore this console shows only very light signs of use or age. After decommissioning all functions and signal paths has been verified, calibrated and measured for frequency response, phase and THD+N. Typical measurement values are as below.

• Very long path: Channel line Input>Dynamic>Equalizer>Insert>Large fader>Small fader>Bus matrix>Channel bus output: Frequency roll off -1,5db@10Hz and -2,25dB@40kHz, Phase shift -50°@10Hz and +70°@40kHz, THD+N unweighted below 0,01% with a slight VCA-bump to 0,025% around 12kHz.

•Short path: Microphone input>Small fader>Direct output: Frequency roll off -0,4db@10Hz and -0,4dB@40kHz, Phase shift -15°@10Hz and +20°@40kHz, THD+N unweighted average below 0,005%.

•Mix busses: Pre vca insert>Mix bus output: Frequency roll off -0,01db@10Hz and -0,5dB@40kHz, Phase shift is totally flat 10Hz-40kHz, THD+N unweighted average below 0,007%.

All measurements were done with the Prism Sound dScope Series III.

Everything works like a charm and measures as you could expect from a brand new console so for a 23 year old one that haven’t been recapped these are nothing but amazing figures!

The sale also includes:
• Full documentation including Operators manual, Service manual and the Original delivery folder covering configuration, factory fitted special orders or modifications.
• Dual PSUs and switchover unit with 9m power cables.
• Full 7m cabling for connecting the patchbay to the console.
• A number of DL-cables with different terminations at the other end.
• 50 Mogami bantam patch cords.
• Wireless talkback remote control.
• Dual original speaker shelves.
• Channel module service extender.
• Center section extension card set (not fully complete).
• Special tools kit.
• Spare circuit kit with an assortment of various ICs, transistors, lamps, VU-illumination-LEDs, fuses etc.
• Packing and crating for ground transport.

If you have a serious interest in this console I’ll be more than happy to provide you with any additional information, photos or measurement data graphs by your request. The console can be seen and test driven in southern Sweden, about one hour drive from Copenhagen international airport (Yes, I can pick you up!). Estimated shipping cost within EU is around €1200.

Asking price €45000.- ex works
