Cooper CS208 and Audio Developments AD149 for George Winston in Seattle

Ira, that 208 looks just like the one Trew sold for me recently. 

If so, you have a gem. It was treated like it was the best mixer ever made :)

It was the 2nd or 3rd that Andy made in the 208 line, and he made it custom w the M-S stereo module in the first fader position.

Hi Mike,

Well, your name is on the road case. That must be just a coincidence.😀 I figured you might recognize the mixer when i posted the pic.

 

Yes, I think it’s a keeper. I wouldn’t mind a latching PFL button (perhaps with with an indicator LED?) in the main Meter section, and latching instead of momentary PFL toggle switches on the inputs. Those would be my #2 requests. #1 would be a Mute switch. A workaround, using the AB busses as my stereo out, is to use the AB toggle switch on the input to unassign it to the output. It produces a very soft click sound, which I haven’t yet determined how critical that is for live mixing. Did an issue like that ever come up for you? I’ve sent Evan at Vark Audio some questions regarding these ideas.
 

i love the stereo input module!

 

I’ll write a little bit of a comparison review of the 2 mixers at a later time.

 

cheers,

Ira

Ira I’m so glad she founded new life 😊👍

 

i never had much of a need for the mute switch in production mixing (but those faders were sooo nice). Those momentary PFL switches got alot of use as you can tell by the worn rubber tips. Both your ideas would make for great mods, but maybe not cost effective.

 

I found my original Operators Manual, circa 1999.

if you’d like for me to mail it to you,

pm me your address.

 

enjoy the Cooper!
