I got an email notification for a new Ward-Beck systems book. What a complete and total scam.
I cannot stress how important having a quality web hosting company is to me.

found a textbook on the shelf at school and in its small section on audio(typical) the example used was…
a lovely WBS- ST console – I wonder who the client was…. notice the scribble strip with alpha numerical readout? that was invented by Rodger in the mid 70s and was the first console to EVER have a digital scribble strip

Introducing: the Ward-Beck Systems RTO-214 Rack Mount Chassis
APKaudio and Ward-Beck Systems are excited to announce a new lineup of retro products. Started with possibly the most requested and in demand item the WBSps.ca has needed:
a 2RU rack enclosure for (2) 14″ WBS modules.
Most rack users have a 3RU box to enclose (2) WBS modules. With Studios shrinking in size and gear filling up the cramped racks with all the killer deals these day… there has been a need for this enclosure.
Originally designed by veteran WBS fabricator Erwin S. for the current lineup of WBS AMS-8 products. The design updates and fabrication are carried forward by Shop Manager and Mechanical designer at Ward-Beck systems Dave Adams. Dave is a master metal smith utilizing the tools that built the modules WBSps users want to have rack mounted. Dave has been working with APKaudio to create a stable platform in a 2RU enclosure.
The BUM (Back Unit Mount) will be pre-punched for however you decided to wire it. Power options and i/o varieties make for easy design.
Future options will include:
– Internal Power supply
– DB25 pre-wired breakouts
– DB25 to EDAC connectors for the modules of your choice
It’s a banana now, but it will be ripe summer 2014!
