The Ghost with the Most

The Pearl Music console is no ordinary 32 channel Soundcraft Ghost. Richard spent many years working for Soundcraft and Neotek building and servicing consoles, and later as an independent tech, developed a series of modifications to improve sonic performance. Some of these mods include custom designed add-on circuit boards that have been installed in studio consoles all around the US. For his own console, every circuit path has been upgraded with the highest quality components, plus a number of extra functions have been added that can't be found anywhere else.

The complete Ghost Story can be found on our sister website Rock It Science Audio.com.
