Thank you kindly Jim.

Btw, this console was purchased 2 years ago from Shane Solski in LA. It' has your mods (13 channels and the master buss). It needs some attention here and there but I'm finally getting it installed. I'll be getting more done in the near future. Really would like to open up the Group busses. They're a tad congested.

Question (and thank you for your time): I'm struggling with bringing the inserts to the bay. Knowing it's Ring = Snd & Tip=Rtn I've only been successful configuring RN on 1 to Tip on 25 as example. Grounds are lifted at the bay but tied on the TRS. This only work correctly "half jacking" (leaving the jack halfway out). Works perfectly like this but shouldn't be. What would the correct Normalling be on bay?

Getting back on topic... just a warning: There are two sizes of these knobs. A larger and a smaller. It looks to me that the 600, etc. desk strips use the smaller knob, while some slightly later desks use the larger or a mix of both sizes. I can't tell, but it sure looks to me like the knobs from Soundcraft/Harmon, Northridge are the larger. Sure you can use either, but you will have a mix of sizes if that matters to you, and the larger could make it hard to see the lettering underneath if you originally had a smaller knob in that position. Not too bad though.

I got some larger knobs as replacements even though I have the smaller ones on my 600. However, I got lucky here... The lettering on my main ch. strip is wider/bigger than what's used on the rest of the board, and the colors I needed were the same as what was on the main st rip. So I took the smaller ones off of my main ch. strip and put them where I they were missing elsewhere, then put the larger ones I got on the main ch. strip. As a bonus, having slightly larger knobs on the main ch. strip now kind of subtly sets it apart as being the master strip and is that much easier to grip that "master monitor out" knob I constantly reach for. Problem solved better than new!
