I want to show of a really cool modified 8 channel console from the 70's I have.
The QM 8 that I have has been recapped, 8 direct outs installed and the EQ has been modified, I even have the full manual with schematics and I think is the only manual left,
I got it used in early 2000 but it was in great condition.
The EQ use to have a 2 position switch, 50 or 200Hz on the Low and and 3K or 10Khz on the High end, then I had Terry Wusnack (former technician at Quantum Audio Labs) help put in 4 position switches and 8 new custom made EQ cards.
Now the Low end can switch between 50, 100, 300, 700Hz.
And the High end can switch between 1K, 3K, 5K, 10Khz
I just had Terry over yesterday, and we opened it up, checked all channels, recorded some audio and the console is still in excellent condition and sound so good and worm.
I made a YouTube video where I show the front and back panel and using the audio from the console.
You are here

Intersting little mixer, thanks! Almost like it was designed for DAW recording. Personally, I’d use a normalled patch bay for the inserts.
