“”  GREG.  Seriously, what the hell?!  This thing sounds amazing. So fat, silky, smooth, and versatile. She’s all routed in and just sounding freaking sweet.  Every channel rings clear and gorgeous.  So many options now. Like so many. The gain on these channels is endearing.  You seriously blew right past my hopes and dreams on this one. Nice job.
I’ll keep the updates coming.  – Christian

klangenschmitt  brooklyn model . 18 channel console . all fat neever  transistor amplifiers (40 of the little buggers!) . includes two mic amps – 4 stereo inputs – 3 system output monitor controller – master and channel inserts – 12 channel direct outputs. and each channel has it’s own separate fx send. to facilitate a ‘normal’ fx bus there’s a four input fx mixer with an inphase /outphase  bus output – for some extra freaking signal processing.

the listenator

listenator51

listenator50

been fooling around with this listenator design. a wooden meter bridge will be luxurious. yes .

functionality.
this listenator has 3 stereo inputs.
3 stereo outputs. (1st output has 70hz splitta)
2 stereo headphone output channels.  c.room & artist.
VU meters . variable level controlled
1 mic input for talkback into artist phones.
operates dimmer across monitoring.

stereo/reverse/mono/solo left/solo right control switcher functions

in phase / phase diff .
..is switch to hear the difference between left and right channels.
its twists one channel out of phase and mixes the two channels mono -
hence the result is ‘only the audio that is different about left and right’
iow  … left minus right.

raving . the onboard TALKBACK mic preamp injects producer speak into the dedicated artist headphone mixer.  the engine ear producer can anytime directly monitor (into the crm phones )  exactly what the artist is hearing – so as to fine fine balance between talkback comm and music that the artist is play/ing with.  when the talkback is GO!  (either momentarily ‘talk’ or set latched ‘more talk’ ) – the control room monitors dim so as not to howlaround of course. dimmed to a user variable preset volume level.

the switched ‘go’ talkback signal can also feed an external power amp/speaker out in the studio.  for a voice of god vibe.

i know u can buy controllers – plenty of choices .
but.  what’s in there? . a bunch of 2$ ICs is what.
ekadek controllers contain NO CHIPS
.. only have ekadek’s own sweet neve ish transistor amplifiers.

the result is just clear clear fat sound.
no superfluous b.s electronics.

zebulon Bult wrote me about his minifenk -  (same transistor amplifiers as the listenator) he was chucking a mackie big knob out. . Hi Greg. the fenk sounds great, I listened to music for a couple of hours last night. I instantly noticed the mid range was not smeary, snare drums sounded tighter & overall it sounded like there was more space & depth. ….   In a nutshell, it sounds like I have removed a kind of hifi emulation from my signal path. I love this thing, it sounds fantastic, thank you very much. Zeb.  please read all ekadek testimonies.   http://ekadek.com/?cat=48

phonoekagrapha is alive

phonoekagrapha

new phonekographa build half complete. two stereo tube phono preamps -  crossfaded onto a stereo bus. 2 other stereo line inputs and a mic amp also feed that stereo bus. the stereo bus can get eqed and metered and set to feed 4 stereo sound system zones. zone 1 is a two way split up system – sub and fullrange.  u can use the stereo cue /headphones function to listen to any mixture of the 5 inputs pre – stereo bus.. so as to attempt to get it right for a change. u know who u are…. anyways … the tube RIAA preamp and the neever transistor amplifiers (40! inside there) sound freakin awesome.i played  a top ‘o’range pioneer mixer against the phonoekagrapha  and !@#$ .. astounding change in clarity and depth of sound.   this beast is for installation at CONCH RECORDS . hi fi bar. ponsonby .new zealand.

two fat ladys on the bench

DSC06553

upper fat lady (excuse that please) is a single channel 6 tube varimu limiter with a two stage transistor mike amplifier as a front end. a killer channel strip. the lower unit is a dual channel limiter amp 12 tube – bloody fat sound. thick and warm – ultra fine tune-able
