“Creation Audio Labs can do entire consoles, master sections, or individual channels as requested. We recommend that as a minimum, the master section be done first, with the possibility of at least two input channels as well. This gives a stereo pair of “hot rodded” channels through a big time beefed up master section!
During this process, we also perform a general refurb of the console, which is a complete strip down and rebuild of the desk. We address all problems, clean up things, hand re-solder pot and jack connections, etc. Please view the refurbishment / restoration section of our web page for a walk through of this process.
All metal work, knobs and PCB modules are cleaned with the appropriate chemicals / solutions / high pressure air.
All rearcon jack connections and all pot connections are resoldered by hand. This insures good connection to the PCB and corrects any solder fractures which cause “crackle” and intermittent drop outs.
All switches are cleaned and lubed.
All pots are cleaned with very expensive chemical cleaners and HP air.
All faders are cleaned and lubed, and the hot wire of the fader is moved and resoldered to prevent shorting to adjacent cards. Additionally any hot glue is removed and the wires are securely attached with foil tape. Ghost faders are not typically extremely smooth to begin with, but we have found a special cleaning and lube process that makes them as silky as possible. The fader mods do not affect the audio, they only improve the reliability and feel. Ask about replacing faders with high quality P&G or TKD faders – we have found by moving a few small parts, we can make these fit like a glove.
All insert jacks are replaced with gold plated Neutrik jacks if needed.
After the refurb process is complete the console is reassembled and fully tested via oscilloscope waveform analysis and condenser mic “live” audio testing. All problems found are corrected.
Additionally, the power supply is QC’d and trimmed for maximum headroom specs. If you have the older PSM-series power supply, it is necessary to update your power supply as a first priority. The Soundcraft CPS-275 power supply is approved, or we can build a custom Power House for you.
All IC’s in the audio path are replaced with the most advanced compliment of Burr Brown, Analog Devices and National Semiconductor IC’s.
All the Jamicon SK series stock capacitors (general purpose caps) are replaced with ultra-low ESR, high performance capacitors.”
