"G+" was a marketing thing only.

...<snip> The term "G+" was picked up by most people, but there is NO difference to the computer. You can add a brainstorm remote, a DK audio phasescope,. and re-wire the entire console with OFC cable if it makes you feel better. I don't remember if there were any other things but those three were the big things.

hi keith,

SSL newbie here. isn't OFC wire kind of a big deal? i was under the impression it makes a marked difference in the overall sound of the board. if it does, rewiring a whole console seems like a costly operation, no? is there a ballpark figure you could give for having this done, and do you think it's worth it?

thank you.




OFC works great in space.

FYI I think Trevor S. designed the '242.

Haven't visited PSW in awhile. There's a reference to this link over in Prodigy and I wanted to update this post.

I've updated the SSL ref index:

I've been looking to do just this mod.  Does anyone have the documentation?
Thanks,
Steven

 I thought that the big deal with the compressor is that a lot of people like to alter the threshold range sensitivity instead of the makeup...

I've seen the schematics of the brown and black EQs ! Not much difference. HF and LF sections of the EQ are slightly changed and the shelving filters are switchable plus a steeper LF shelving section

Wayne,  you might be interested to know that the SSL 82e10 channel dynamics schematic on your site is incorrect...  (one of many out there I'm told).

R22 is listed as 1MΩ and in actuality the value is 10kΩ.  If someone were to follow this schematic, they would have a 22 second release time on the compressor...
