In The Mix(er)

I have a tendency to browse thrift stores looking for old electronics. This audio mixer from RadioShack is one of my more favorite finds, even if it’s more limited in its uses these days compared to other, more expensive boards.

But hey … it was cheap.

  1. Used to have one of these Realistic mixers. My dad found it at a thrift store in the 90s and bought it for me. Even incorporated it into my first podcast rig (2005). The backlight for the VU meters eventually stopped working, and overall, I found myself using it very infrequently. Sold it on eBay. Regardless, this type of mixer isn’t really made anymore. It’s an interesting attempt at a “pro” piece of gear that was clearly meant for the consumer market.
