Where are you getting the metal work and faceplates done? They look nice.

I'm wondering about the same thing?

How? Are they powder coated or just painted? How did you do the print?

Powder coating and N fronts are not good idea.We use som hi quality industrial paints.Print is UV print

Excuse my ignorance but what do you mean by "N fronts"?

Thanks for the info.

Only "as well" ….

anybody made some test ( also "virtual" ) about " THD"  and signal to noise ratio
for a classic 16 or 24 ch  to  L-R master bus ?
cheers

PS :
just to avoid unpleasant sound surprises….
(after so lot of work…. and money too..)

First is the colour problem, powder coating has very limited palette to chose from.Second is overall look , satin gray blue paint look much better to me.I spend a enormous amount of time to find right one , and at the end it turn out, that Mercedes satin paint was the best.

Well we're doing everything by the Great Neve Book, so I guess THD and SNR should be pretty good :) Not trying to reinvent the wheel, here !

Sorry everyone, it's been a while since I posted anything, been awfully busy at the studio! As Sasa showed you, there's been quite a bit of progress on the tape return modules side... well actually, they're DONE! I just got them today! And they look and feel stellar! As you can see, they're just missing their 31267 input transformers, which they'll be getting very soon!


I'm also in the process of finishing the CAD files for the bucket panels of the console, they'll be in production before the end of the week! This is getting real, I'm so excited!

Actually , I test modules and they sound beyond my expectations.My biggest concern were our custom inductors , but it tourn out that they  "affect" sound in a same way as geniune, one which are wound on smaler core.

Building a console of this size is quite an undertaking! But if you actually manage to do it, then you can call yourself a guru of DIY audio  ;D
Keep up the good work!

I also have plans to build a console eventually, but something more simple, like API 1604.

Hey all!
Last week, I got the first bucket panels from the laser shop, so I did a first assembly test to see how everything fits. And it all works perfectly!!



Couldn't be happier with the results, I'm ordering the rest of the panels this week-end!! Then they need to be tapped and countersunk. I'm also about to order the ISEP hardware for making sure all the modules will slide in flawlessly.
When I get all this, I can start assembling and wiring the frame up  8) 8) 8)

I'm interested to know about the output transformers it appears you have wound.    I am looking at the split bobbin, is one side secondary & the other primary ?  Looking at CJ's winding docs for the 1166 it appears that there are 2 primary layers & 3 secondaries.   

See here

Hi Robb, Those are not LO1166, they are T1310 inductors. This inductor was used at neve to load the BA183/283 cards when no balanced output was required. A traditionnal neve switching unit would have 1 BA183 before the fader,  loaded with such an inductor, and another BA183 before the buss sends, loaded with an LO1166 to use as a direct output.
Those modules in the pictures are just  tape return switching units for the right side of the console, so they don't need direct ouptuts, hence the two T1310 inductors. As a matter of fact, the left side, 8 buss 4aux switching units we're about to build won't have LO1166 for direct ouput either, as I don't have the need for them. I'd much rather use a buss.
On a side note,  you can see on the pictures  that the modules are not fitted with an input transformer yet. I'll be using OEP 31267 transformers.
