Hard-Core Gear Porn Wednesday...

Yes, yes it is. With a convenient hint in the previous thread, we visit the studio of one Robert "Acid" Babicz. He has nice kit. See it here. He has a Calrec Chilton (some question of lineage...) mini console. How fun is that?

According to this waybacked page from the Chilton site, their ethos is predicated on doing everything in house. Don't know if that means they did so in the 70s, but perhaps that tips things in favour of the no-link-between-the-two side of the argument:

gibbon, the box above the mac keyboard is a sintefex - either an fx2000 or fx8000: link [www.sintefex.co...]">link [www.sintefex.co...]

So what's the box above the Sintefex? Is it a mixer or Eq...

you guys must be kidding about rob aciiiiid,sheez.

chilton is good stuff. I worked with one owned by a friend, but it's very simple and basic really, not a Neve by any stretch. That friend never mentioned the Calrec connection but did say they were made for the BBC, which was apparent from the fact that the faders operated in reverse (up = down).

Just noticed that Mr. Acid posted on gearslutz looking for another Chilton mixer.

yes, Tomer, and a lot of other fine tube gear. But nothing less will do, apparently, to pump up those 303s and 909s.
