Universal Audio, UREI and Teletronix
« Reply #40 on: April 21, 2008, 05:40:21 pm »

I recently added an entry for Universal Audio on Wikipedia. Before I got around to editing it, there was an album by The Delgados squatting there.  Rolling Eyes

I don't know a ton about Universal Audio, UREI and Teletronix and I bet I got a couple of things wrong as well as failing to include important bits.

I certainly didn't give the modern second generation re-introduction of Universal Audio enough ink. I don't know them very well. They deserve a more fully realized treatment.

Help me out here.

Wiki Got Bose. Wiki Got Beranek, Carver, Edison, Sabine.

Olson has only a couple of lines of text. Sad

 Yeh,
Thanks Bink
I read only your first posting, I'm killing time (between Projects) and have been reading a lot of posts but, my failure to catch-up ... has caught up it seems.

No sweat. Have a brew while you peruse.  Cool

The past hour somebody using an anonymous IP address from the Costa Mesa area has been greatly expanding the QSC page. Other manufacturing folks could take a tip from that.  Very Happy

I am having a luncheon at my house this summer with all the production company owners that can "qualify for the Denny's senior menu" and have my son video tape their history of providing production in the Northwest.

We have already lost so much history with owners either very ill or passing.  I want to get their road stories in a form that those that follow us can know where they came.

It should be a very fun lunch as most of the owners are over 60 and little by little are retiring or going to desk jobs.

Play it safe out there over Memorial Day weekend.  Bonnie

Bink-

Wonderful idea !

Here is an article on the history of EV, with photo's of Al Kahn ,etc.

http://www.prosoundweb.com/install/commentary/kc/ev/timecaps ule.shtml

I would not overlook these folks:

Gene Cerwiniski (not sure about that last name spelling) who founded Cerwin Vega.

Cal Perkins

Dr Oskar Heil, of AMT (air motion transformer) fame

Ron Wickersham

Ed Long (father/inventor of PZM and "time align")

Don Keele

Terry and Bill Hanley (one of these brothers did Woodstock and Beatles at Shea).

Karlson Coupler website: http://home.planet.nl/~ulfman/

http://www.historyofpa.co.uk/

http://www.navyrelics.com/tribute/bellsys/westernelectric_hi story.html

The guys who founded and designed for Sound Workshop

and see this website:

Great list of links and guys.

Oskar Heil's already got a pretty good article.

Here's a link to the WikiProject Professional sound production list of articles still to be written.

When I get home from my road gig I'll add your suggestions of Ed Long, the Hanleys, John Karlson and Cal Perkins to the list.  Cool
