Studio A may have been the world's most homey recording studio.  It was located in the basement of the Main Street Music building at 102 East Main Street. 

 

 

 

Here's the Soundcraft Series II 24x8 Console (c 1978) on the stand that I built.  The extra tilt and arm rest made mixing much easier.  The top-mounted processing rack was very handy.  The Series II was not the best built board around.  Minor repairs were needed so often that I kept the bottom off of the thing.

You may have noticed that the monitors are in the corners, and that there are a number of guitars hanging around the room.   Two examples of my not knowing what I was doing.  (Regrettably, I had everyone convinced that I knew my stuff).

 

 

 

Here's another of my home made racks.  My Teac 5500 1/4 track (c 1974) is on the top.   (It has been broken since 1980.  Have to fix that, one of these days.)  On the left of the rack is the Tascam 80-8 1/2" eight track (what a piece of crap).  On the right is the Tascam 25-2 1/2 track.  I have had it since about '82.  It does not sound too bad if you turn off the DBX noise reduction and run it at 7.5 ips instead of 15ips.  (My uncle's Vietnam era Teac A-6010 sounds better though.)  The shelf below the machines was very handy for editing.  The bottom of the rack houses the power amps for the monitors and studio headphones.
