With a welcome resurgence, albeit a niche market, of interest in mixing analog. Stewart Independent has re-invested in some packaged analog rider-standard gear.


We have acquired a number of  NOS BSS Dynamics Processors and many NOS BSS FCS960 Graphic Equalizers in addition to Drawmer Dynamics Processors and like-new dual engine Eventide Eclipse and TC Electronic M2000 and TC Electronic D2 plus Yamaha SPX Stereo EFX Processors.


Simply put, most of our own engineers in addition to some ringers, clients and a surprising number of the younger engineers out there are wanting to mix analog at FOH and at Monitors.


There is certainly something to still be said for the more tactile and connected experience of analog mixing in addition to visually referencing just one “really big screen”, the  one we used to call the “stage”.  There is still no real substitute for “that warm and smooth analog sound”.  Some of us really miss a proper arm rest as well, I might add.


All of  the SIP analog gear functions as new and is in excellent cosmetic and working condition.


SIP Analog Racks again use Whirlwind W4 MASS connectors and/or Whirlwind Insert and XLR multi-patches plus custom Whirlwind rack-mount patch panels, with the addition of modern Powercon AC power outlets plus traditional 20A Edison and NEMA L5/30A Twist-Lock courtesy AC as needed.


Check back regularly as we add to our “Old School” inventory.


Consoles: Stewart independent can still provide, (at both FOH and Monitor World), Yamaha PM5000‘s, Midas XL4’ s, and Midas Heritage 3000’s or H2000‘s in excellent working and cosmetic condition.  We also have access to a very nice Soundcraft Series 5 and several Soundcraft MH consoles. Lastly, both the FOH and Monitor versions of the  Crest XR mini-consoles are kept in inventory for small shows, sub-mixers and for small monitor rigs and I.E.M. systems when appropriate. We use both the SIP rider-racks for outboard and Midas XL42’s as the final output stage even when using small analog desks like the Crests.


It’s been refreshing to mix some analog shows again for all of us at SIP. The BSS gear with Midas XL42‘s sounds great, especially when working with the new SIP RCF TTL6A/RCF TTS36A Large Format Line Source Concert PA and it’s advanced DSP, plus high-end analog input and output stages.


All of our gear makes for a very well voiced match, wether mixing analog or digital.
