The Soundtracs Jade - The Top of the Analogue Tree




SOUNDTRACS JADE 48 CONSOLE : Pic courtesy of Phil Croft studios Birmingham :

This was Soundtracs' "flagship" analogue console which finished

production in 1996 ,I guess the most famous users were ABBA as his

engineer Mike Tretow , had one in his home studio

please see

And he still has it !!



And theres no reason why these vintage consoles won't be going just

as well in 2026...(imagine that !)

So why would you want such a large beast in your control room? (32, 40 AND 48 VERSIONS AVAILABLE)

Well you cant put a Jade in your bedroom, could, but IT'S BIG!...

NB: Studio Systems CANNOT guarantee the TRACMIX automation systems anymore. If it works when you buy please accept it as a bonus: The TRACMIX' are 17 years old and we have no way of tech' supporting these software systems. I dont actuallyknow anyone who actually uses the "stand alone " Tracmix but I just want to cover myself : Anything analogue - no problem !!

What's all this "FdB" EQ ? "

......which combats the effects on non-linearity in music and ear at the extremes of the audio spectrum. With the FdB Parametric equaliser the 4 band EQ gently increases its gain from 15dB to 20 dB as the filter is swept . The result is superior and more effective equalisation at 20 KHz and 20 Hz" Well - you cant argue with that !

Of course the Levellers down in Brighton have had a Jade since new < I wired it in in 1992, we took out Tom Robinsons old CM4400 ( where did that one go?) and put in a lovely Ms Jade 48. They use it all the time under the stewardship of Al Scott , legendary Brighton producer:
