Offbeat's   ' JAZZTOWN '   article   by   Jason Patterson


The merger of a custom built 16 channel stereo mixing board in a brief case by me and a Sony PCM
701es digital converter with a Betamax Video Cassette Recorder sold by Alterman Audio was
the foundation for the JAZZTOWN recordings.  Around 1980 I was invited numerous times by
Jimmy Ford to assist with recording live music at gigs around New Orleans and at the Snug
Harbor venue in particular.  Eventually I started plans for building the compact stereo mixer
suited for live 2-track recording.  Small light weight inexpensive stereo mixing boards with all
the bells and whistles were not available then as they are today.  Each channel strip was to
have phantom powering, phase, line/mic switch, trim, -10 & LIMIT & +10 db leds, limit threshold,
6 point EQ at 50, 100, 250, 1000, 5000, 10000 HZ, EQ IN/OFF/EQ OUT switch, slide fader,
2 pre-sends, 2 post sends, stereo panning, and a stereo submaster assign switch to A B C D
stereo buses.  And finally, 4 effects returns with pan, 4 stereo submaster faders for buses
A B C D, a 10 level stereo display output indicator, and a stereo master fader.                        

Perhaps the most rewarding compliment that I ever received for this entire endeavor was from
Saxophonist   Earl Turbinton:                                                                                                        

"You Bad Man !  You Bad!  This is the BEST recording that I have EVER made in my life !"
