APB Pro Desk 4
« on: March 15, 2009, 01:04:54 pm »

We just fired the first shots in anger on a brand new APB Prodesk 4, with my lead "young dude" Joe V. at the helm. So far so good, 22 out of 24 bands to go before the night is over.


System:
2 VRX932LA DP over 4 VRX918DP
DBX and TC outboard
Shure and Audix mics
APB Prodesk 4 32 frame (this system usually goes out with a GB4)

Initial impression:
So this is what this system really sounds like. The difference with just playback wasn't much, but once 20 channels are summed there is just no comparison.Granted, the console is several  steps up in cost and market, but it sounds like we took a tarp off of the mains.
More later...

I picked this desk up at APB Headquarters in Totowa, NJ on Thursday and delivered it to Jason's shop for subsequent beating up, handing around, and testing. I took some photos I thought you all might find interesting.

A,P, and B in Final Testing Room with QA Staff
« Reply #9 on: March 16, 2009, 01:10:54 pm »

This is the room where every APB product goes before it gets shipped, and at least two techs separately check every single channel, bus, and control for correct functionality. Between them and the assembly teams they can move consoles through the shop pretty quickly, I saw two completed Spectra consoles go out the door over the hour I was there, plus a ProDesk, and there was a whole cart of tested MixSwitches ready to be boxed and shipped.

From left to right that's Chuck Augustowski, Felipe, Taz Bhogal, Wilton, and John Petrucelli.
