<< Equipment used at 700 West Recording >>
Homemade Stuff
  • Bi-amped, 3-way studio monitors (Bozak lo, Eminence mids, CTS hi) with 200/100watt 700west amps & electronic x'overs
  • Modular analog synth w/digital key scan - more closely resembled the Buchla, than the Moog (output frequency directly proportional to control voltage). PAIA modules would i'fce with it quite well
  • Ring modulator signal processor (quite effective on B3 organ and electric oboe!)
  • Instrument pitch-to-voltage converter (to i'face instruments with the synth)
  • Stereo 4-band compressor
  • 700west-redesigned Teletronics LA-3A compressor/limiters (Vactrol control elements).
  • 3 stretched plate reverb units with 700west 30 watt driving systems (each plate had 4 active pickups on board). The wooden frames were a mistake, tho. Seasonal humidity changes would require periodic re-alignment of the drivers! Only harpsichords are worse!
