A new member of the family: It’s a Gorton!

I’ve been restoring WBS consoles for about 10 years now, and I think I’ve just taken the art of what I love doing to the next level. I have acquired THE Gorton P1-2 used at the WBS factory. It was used for their custom buttons, and their early one off panels.

This all began in 2009 while restoring a console. I was building a panel and wanted the exact engraving the factory did. http://wikigear.org/wiki/index.php?title=Image:APK_20091218-Antoinette_010.JPG This lead me to ask around and it turned out a past employee of WBS had the machine in his home shop. Fast forward 4 years and it’s got a new home in the Revolution Recording Custom Shop.

This sucks – Bias no longer operating

Doing a migration from one computer to another I’ve lost my ability to licence a software a really enjoyed. Bias Peak and Bias Sound Soap. Their licensing server has been shut down and I cannot authorize it. I understand there are downsides to dongle licensing, but in this case I think it would have saved my tool.

I say boo to bias being gone, but boo to a bad licensing system.

AMS RMX-16 Delay

I was looking thought my archive and found this. It’s a programming sheet for an AMS RMX-16 delay unit. I think we have the scanning wands somewhere…

I doubt this would ever work as the JPEG compression would really mess with the integrity of the bars and spaces

Some WBS manuals

Here are some WBS manuals that have been consolidated. Their Functional Diagrams, Layouts have been preserved but the details are no longer with us. A “vanilla” complete copy of the console / communication system have been archived and will soon be scanned for the archive…

Thanks to Matt Rideout for the help!
