3m M79 1 inch 8 track

Postby Ottomatic » Fri Jan 25, 2013 1:01 am

Does anyone else in Australia own one of these machines ? I would like to resurrect mine and would like to know if there are any spare parts in australia ? I know There is Matt Allen in nashville and Clive Kavan in the U.K but I would like to try local first.
Cheers.

Hi Otto,
No I don't own one but the first studio I worked at had one in the mid eightys.
It was a video/audio post house called ECV later it was called Pro Image and then Apocalypse Post.
It was a 16 track version.
Not sure what happened to it but our moderator Rick ONeil worked there for a while doing techie stuff
he might remember what happened to it.
I remember the older engineers saying don't use that old noisey piece of crap, but they said that about the Neve as well.
Good luck.

Thanks Jason , what makes it harder is that I live in Perth now. I used tech named John Mulligan about 25 years ago in Sydney . Maybe I could track him down and see if he knows where to get parts from.
This is my first post on any forum so thank you for helping out !
Cheers
