Girardin C 188
Console broadcast, radio .... but quite compatible for mixing music, notament behind a DTD!
number of votes varies from configs: there are a number of modules (modules mono, stereo modules with severe acute eq, stereo modules without eq ...). The tray is usually 18 units and there is a SAT supplmentaires with 8 inputs.

On single slices: 3 between indpendantes (mic or line), gain Crant + micro fine adjustment, cl Insert symmetric, HP, LP (fixed), 3-band eq semi param, eq on / off , phase, 140 mm fader, on / off the pan, pan, solo, cut, "test" (2nd solo).
The console has six subgroups (each with: insert symmetric, low cut crimp at two positions, Hi cut ribbed 2 positions) -
Also, there are four departures (pre / post).
VU meters for six groups and one for the "test"

The architecture is somewhat specially, each slice has a routing to the six sub-groups, which themselves can be routed to the choice indpendantes 6 outputs, which allows to make several mixes simultanment such a "flat" and the other through an insertion periphrique while maintaining the same vocal tracks on 2 mixes. Something not feasible on a traditional console!
All connectors (balanced) are on the back of the console on the bases Tuschel 39 points, which provides, given the size of the console, a multitude of inputs / outputs.
IDAL is a patch cable bantam TT ass Tuschel to enjoy all the features of the console. It's a good week of work but the rewards are worth the effort given the opportunity to insert and then routing.

Petit hic, no phantom power supply on the edges. You must buy external boxes that forunissent of 48V.

RESULTS: Compared with a ridiculous size, the console is the most complete and most complex in the world I know.
Looks like the pub, it has everything a large, and especially the SON! on the other hand, beware, she weighs the weight, she is a 2!


The manuals are super detailed (all circuits, schematics, diagrams, conenction of .... Tuschel)!
Real "bible" techniques!


The preamps in these consoles are great, apparently, it would be germanium circuits with transformers. The EQ is also very musical, and with the HP + LP, we get a very interesting color!
The "Q" is wide enough, so for tailller "end" is not IDAL.
Bandwidth is excellent. I measured a little background noise output from all the same bus (mute slices).
The power supply is 3U, +24 / -24 volts, as in NEVE!


REVIEW: A real console, uses a DCEN for Radio France, in cars etc. .... rgy before everyone does the full-digital! There are a multitude of declensions in Girardin (from very large to the small portable in 4 or 8 channels). We find a very good price. If you do not know what you pay a small STUDER .... ca is the Girardin
