The Cadac F Series is very similar to the J Series, the main difference is, the J Series has VCA subgrouping, the F Series does not. Without the VCA's the F Series draws much less current so it costs a lot less to run. Further this particular has a single low noise power supply built for us by Anthony Waldron.
Unlike the J Series all of the modules on the F Series are fitted with the superior Cadac 4 band parametric EQ. Cadac consoles are renowned for their superior sound, build quality and reliability. We have sold over 20 of these great consoles during the past few years these superior consoles were manufactured using ultra high quality components.
This console has been serviced by Chris Roberts and comes with a rebuilt power supply, it has 40 Mono inputs with routing to the 12 groups plus direct outputs from the modules, it has 4 band parametric EQ one very channel, one customer who has been a dedicated Calrec owner for many years referred to the Cadac 4 band parametric EQ as the best EQ he had ever used. The modules also have switchable inserts plus phantom power and phase reverse.
The 40 channels route to the 12 subgroups and each has a direct output, the 12 subgroups can be routed to the 12 stereo Matrix outputs.
Although the F & J Series consoles were designed for theatre however they work very well in a DAW based studio, as well as conventional routing the F Series is equipped with a Matrix system, each of the 12 group modules are equipped with a stereo matrix output these can be used to for control room and studio monitor sends and to make multiple mixes for fold-back etc. The F Series module is equipped with a bi functional switch that can be used for muting and in-place solo.
Although there is no meter bridge every input & output is metered using hi res led meters, this includes the aux sends.
This desk has so much going for it I would be pleased to demonstrate it to you if you wish to visit, please call to make an appointment to visit.
Finally it sounds like an old Neve but costs much much less.
