The rare 10-channel Yamaha PM1000
My "new" mixer arrived today, the oft hyped and overly-parted out Yamaha PM1000 (or is it overly-hyped and oft parted out?). Either way, it's a well-built, modular, discrete console from the days of disco, a big, heavy beast that will be a nice companion to my forthcoming big, heavy tape machine.
Yes, this very mixer has been subject to the channel racking craze, but for my 8-track setup it should do the trick for now (and the price was right).
This guy has a nice breakdown (literally) of the mixer, it's features, and potential modifications.
Check out the manual here:

I'm mostly keen to just use the board as is and before I ever get into some mods for this thing I would probably recap it. The next thing to do would be to add direct outs, even just unbalanced outs.
Modules are pretty readily available if I decide to add more. Though if I do, where will the cats sleep?
