Here’s a Ventura owned by Dave Pearlman of Rotund Rascal Recording in Los Angeles.
Jim Blackfoot’s Quad Eight™ 2082. Audioscapes Pty Ltd, Newtown, NSW, Australia. 20 input, 2 way switched EQ, circa 1971. It has lovely red round fader knobs with Gliss faders.
Mark Addison’s Quad Eight Pacifica 24-frame, circa 1979, three-band sweepable eq, P&G faders.
Equivalent to two AM-3 opamps on a single card. Used as an output bus driver, mix summing amp, gain makeup or utility amp. Similar versions of this card include the CA-27, CA-27a, CA-37 and CA-272. All can become high quality dual preamps by adding mic input transformers, optional output transformers, and a special “advanced skills” version…

A cool ad from the 70s: Dave Pearlman sent in, which appeared on the back cover of Mix Magazine. “The forty by forty, totally modular, fully automated, feature-packed, super-spec’d, recording and mixdown system, that you thought you couldn’t afford.”
