friday i got the new mixer panel back from the painters. last week i’d letter stamped it and now its ready to start building onto. its a 20 input channel – into 4 recording subgroups – into stereo2mix –  recording/mixing board with 2 auxiliary sends. 4  input channels have microphone inputs. 8 are instrument or line channels. 4 are simple direct to mix returns. then there are 4 tape monitoring channels. theres an afl system. and control room listening switcher. and a test audio oscillator. there will be a bridge of  6 vu meters in that space provided. a fairly large build actually. next photo will be with all the parts fitted to the panel ready for wiring up.
