STUDIO SYSTEMS have now designed and built the NEW BLUE DOG POWER SUPPLIES that will POWER all the SOUNDTRACS consoles (EXCEPT JADE ) and we are even selling them to non SOUNDTRACS users : AMEK , SOUNDCRAFT ,GLENSOUND ,TRIDENT and Allen + Heath so far , 50 supplies built and out there and everyone has been delighted with thiere performance , I think I might be onto something here :) !!
They provide a SUPER quiet MIX buss ( you wont believe your ears ) and increased DYNAMIC HEADROOM : the whole MIX completely "opens up"
( like fitting a new engine in your car )
The BLUE DOG PSU ( for MEGAS and SOLO etc ) costs 250 GBP inc UK post : (EUROPE +USA post please ask)
And the BLUE DOG supply ( for SOLITAIRE ) is only 300 GBP . OTHER SOUNDTRACS DESKS :PLEASE GET a QUOTE , some have 5 VOLTAGE RAILS !!
Its a fantastic investment if your going to hang on to your console :) for a while longer ;
(We can also build supplies for other console TYPES : SOUNDCRAFT , Allen & Heath , AMEK ,Studiomaster, )
here are some happy customers ' remarks about the performance of the BLUE DOG supplies
The PSU arrived today and I would just like to say how great it was to be able to fit it into the AMEK with the lead you had made up. Thank you so much!
So, after powering it for the first time, first testing one of my mixes through the 2 mono channels in the line in's, the 4 band eq blew me away, the mix bus/headphone output is so clean from noise its incredible, and the headroom on this thing is immense (welcome back to proper analogue mixing, Rich! )I'm gutted that I never heard the old power supply to compare the difference.- no, scratch that, Who cares, I'm happy :-)
and Marc bought a BLUE dog for his SOUNDCRAFT SPIRIT :
Well, I had no luck fitting a molex on the cable from the original PS- too much of a hassle, so not able to do an A/B comparison, but here are my thoughts on the new PS: in terms of sound, (of course it's all subjective and prone to whatever unconscious background excitement and so on), I feel like I can better distinguish between frequencies.
and DEC2012 Giuseppe from Italy had a BLUE DOG for his Soundtracs SOLO 32
Very light compare to the original!

The blue dog is here!
