    low signal track 4 on both tapes, I assume no chance it's hardware. I wonder why that would be then. I heard digital something when played on a half track, but that could still count as almost nonexistent.

    Brian,

    Would still love to get a collection of your images to include in the archive...

    I found the Dog proms for:
    Billy Thorp
    Pink Floyd
    Police
    Rock 2
    Starship

    IIR Starship had the Dogloids...

    I'll put the hex files on a USB Stick with your digitized show tapes, the original tapes, the CYGNB stuff - and send it all your way...

    By the way, a part of the CYGN-B story that is still mysterious is information about the potentiometers. As well as range etc., I wonder, did they connect to edge pins on the card, a bus, or something else?

    Billy Thorpe? Did any of the other locations do that show (21st Century Man) other than San Francisco? We had Billy up here to intro the premier show! I still kinda like that album...

    I'm out of the province for a few weeks, so my net access is intermittent. Just saw your post, Brian. That's very good news. Thrilled to hear you have that data to send. Really an unbelievable opportunity to restore and preserve some pieces of laser show history. The starship logo and much other good stuff is most likely in there.

    Default A bad slide of the Starship logo

    This is a bad rendition of the Starship logo. The only one in the archive. Just FYI.

    Thumbs up Analog Consoles FTW!

    Man, we have *got* to get all you guys together in one room at SELEM next year! With the renewed interest in all things abstract I think it's time to plan another round-table discussion around analog effects...

    That's a great slide, Ron. I remember that slide made an appearance in a talk in 2013 given by Ivan Dryer.

    I have returned from travels, and now would greatly welcome any of the previously discussed materials, minus the tapes, which, Brian, I don't need given that you have transferred them to files. The tapes may be kept or forwarded to whomever you think should have them.

    Brian, please let me know if you don't have my address.

    Wondering if I have interpreted the info provided so far regarding the CGYN-B modulation signals correctly in this emulator output:

    The AM signal osc 2 primary osc 3 AM source was about 20% of the total gain (in my mind's eye, but perhaps that's just how I played Song to the Sun and the there was a sawtooth aspect with the open loop scanners).

    Sorry I haven't sent your package - normally I would just give it to our shipping guy an write the company a check to cover it, but an export becomes a whole conformance issue. I'll drop it by UPS...
